Less than a month after its premiere on November 19, and after an oozing anime-style teaser, imitating the characteristic credits of the original series, Netflix shows us a “conventional” advance of this adaptation that promises to become one of its most attractive products for the last months of the year. John Cho, Mustafa Shakir and Daniella Pineda bring to life the iconic Spike Spiegel, Jet Black and Faye Valentine.
In this new advance we can see more about the setting and aesthetics of the series, which does not seem so cartoon as the first advance seemed to indicate. And yet it keeps everything we love about ‘Cowboy Bebop’: the stony lines, the exaggerated characters, and the iconic settings and situations. It remains to be seen if the whole works by itself or depends too much on your inspiration.
Bounty hunter, but galactic
‘Cowboy Bebop’ tells the adventures of a unique group of bounty hunters who hunt down some of the most dangerous criminals in the galaxy. But of course, the past of all of them contains secrets, and it is possible that this one ends up turning against their own interests. The scripts for this new version of the anime are André Nemec -‘Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol’- and Christopher Yost -‘Thor: Ragnarok ‘are in charge.
Among the first criticisms that these trailers have aroused is the absence of important characters or the obvious decrease in the erotic component of some designs. To us, few friends of the integrismos in the matter of adaptations, it seems to us that for the moment, the product paints as fast-paced as one might expect. And with the inevitable musicon of Yoko Kanno. It only remains to wait until November 19.
