News of the Cowboy Bebop remake was first met with anger. How dare Netflix try to turn such a classic anime into what will inevitably be a failed live-action adaptation?! But then John Cho was cast in the lead role of the ultra-cool Spike Spiegel, and that anger turned to trepidation. Then slowly a cautious excitement, as we learned that original creator, and a very good dog, were confirmed to be on board. And it looks like Netflix is doing its darndest to win us skeptics over, with the news that original anime composer Yoko Kanno will be scoring the new (jazzy) soundtrack for the live-action series, which will debut on Netflix this fall.
