Netflix is preparing for the arrival of a Friday full of premieres. Among them is Cowboy Bebop, a series that in a season of only ten episodes combines drama, comedy, action and adrenaline. Starring John Cho, Mustafa Shakir and Daniella Pineda, this strip is based on the famous anime of the same name and which was released 23 years ago.
Cowboy Bebop, the original version, is available in its entirety on Netflix and is even ranked as one of the favorites on all lists of experts and fans of the genre. Therefore, the premiere of the series that will have real actors is highly anticipated among all anime fans who want to see how the story of the bounty hunters will be portrayed.
And, it should be noted that the platform managed to create a series worthy of a marathon. Perhaps true fans of anime and especially manga prefer to stick with the original versions, but fans of science fiction and western will be able to set their sights on this strip. It’s just that, with interstellar travel, a bit of irony, sarcasm, and action, Spike and Jet meet all sorts of things.
With an admirable level of production, the protagonists achieve that the spectator is internalized in the worlds that they travel. The creation, out of the ordinary, took Netflix to one of its highest levels with which it once again demonstrated why it is the streaming giant. In each chapter the off-camera work is highlighted where music is one of the most important factors to portray each scene.
On the other hand, the performances of John Cho as Spike, Mustafa Shakir playing Jet and Daniella Pineda being Faye are another of the points in favor that this creation will have. Although, of course, in the animated version the expressions are much deeper and the fighting movements much more exaggerated, the truth is that now the interpreters make a very similar characterization of those moments.
Of course, it should be noted that despite the fact that the essence of the series and the story is the same as the anime, the creation of Netflix is much more aimed at western and science fiction fans. Those who are fans of the anime will not find in the live action of Cowboy Bebop a strip to enjoy. Although, for the audience of the platform, if you are looking for something to have fun with this weekend, this is the ideal production.
