Netflix’s adaption of classic anime Cowboy Bebop has been a hot topic of discussion ever since it’s announcement in 2017. After a rather adorable behind the scenes teaser featuring the dog cast as the crew’s beloved corgi, Ein, only a few on-set photos have accompanied occasional bits of news around the show.
Early Friday, Netflix announced that the show would finally see release on November 19th. Today, Netflix ups the hype factor by dropping their version of the iconic opening sequence from the TV show. The opening features the theme song from the anime, TANK! by The Seatbelts and legendary composer Yoko Kanno, whom is confirmed as the show’s composer. The sequence features several callbacks to the original, including the appearance of other popular characters and even scenes from the anime.
Other media, including several novels and a comic book series, are also confirmed in production, with the first novel set to drop in November and first issue of the comic in December. A trade release of the comic is also confirmed.
Check out the opening for the upcoming show, and get ready to fly with the crew of the Bebop on November 19th, only on Netflix!
