After delivering first looks a few months back, Netflix has now offered side-by-sides of Cowboy Bebop. The comparisons serve to highlight how the upcoming live-action adaptation draws from the beloved original anime series.
The first comparison focuses on a scene from the anime’s ninth episode, “Jamming With Edward,” in which the Bebop is seen landing on Earth. The live-action version remains faithful to the setup seen in the anime, though the colors of the converted interplanetary fishing trawler owned and captained by Jet Black hitting the water are toned down. The difference in tones is also seen in the scene comparison for the battle between Spike Spiegel and antagonist Vicious from Episode 5, “Ballad of Fallen Angels.”
Check out the side-by-sides of Cowboy Bebop below and look for the 10-episode live-action adaptation to hit Netflix November 19.
