Oh, boy. Here we ago….another anime/manga adaptation…Americanized. I’m not excited at all for it. I love Cowboy Bebop and there are just some elements that cannot be transmitted into live action shows. They are promising to try and get the same feel as the anime but also modernizing the show as well. I can’t say from the beginning that I’m liking the cast of the show. Spike Spiegal and Edward are my favorite characters and if they don’t pull off the acting needed for those two characters then it’s gonna bomb….at least with me.
The other thing that is bothering me is the fact that it’s being done by Netflix. Now don’t get me wrong. Netflix has some great TV shows, K-Drama shows and anime. However, shall we not discuss the tragedy that is Death Note…? My point exactly. Maybe this will be different since they are making it into a serial show instead of a movie. So it leaves room for detailed story-telling and getting to know the characters and allowing time for the direction of the show to grow on you.
I’m not sure what to expect from this series, but I hope it doesn’t ruin it for me the way some live actions have done. So What do you guys think? Excited? Disappointed? A little bit of both? Let me know in the comments below.
