Cowboy Bebop’s Trio Dynamics
In the latest teaser of an adaptation of Cowboy Bebop, might come as fruitful for fans and creators alike. Mixed first preview, and clunky looks, might be a little bit polished in the latest teaser of Cowboy Bebop live-action.
With the global phenomenal success of the animation hitting cult-classics status, Netflix’s attempt at shooting for stars, always gonna be tricky. Stan, or gargantuan gate of fans and the keeper alike, is very hard to please at times.
Especially when it comes to many anime-only specials like Cowboy Bebop, comes with fans that hellbent on banning the live-action’s idea in the first place. But after warming to the idea of how to lose the place setting is, but the tightness of the Cowboy Bebop’s dynamic is, is hard to pass this level of treatment.
Compared to what Shin’ichirô Watanabe has done as the series original director, will have to wait until the premiere hits on Netflix on the 19th of November this year. But nevertheless, the main idea of what the series is all about, the stylish looks and banter sold us all in the first teaser.
The cast so far…
John Cho who is playing the main drive for the series as a whole portrays Spike Spiegel with flair and his own flavor. Mustafa Shakir who played Jet Black, the rugged, stern & eye glaring ex-policemen, is to be the voice of reason and heart throughout the series. Danielle Pineda who played Faye Valentine was pretty good at the teaser itself, but frankly, we can’t see much other than the trio dynamics of sarcasm and banter.
With the main three casts of the crew plus ein, Edward is the one that’s still missing on the frame. The only reasoning that I could’ve to think of so far is that for the new fans is a good chance to actually introduce him as the true comedic relief of the series.
With paneling style of the same transition in the anime opening sequence, many inputs of the series instantly scream Scott Pilgrims vs The World. The scenes quickly showcase Spike’s martial arts, Jet gets easily irritated and goes full dad mode, on top of Faye’s snarky reactions.
This purely subjective perspective comes from a fan, and I gotta admit that I like the direction of its goofiness, solid jokes, and underlined the soul of the series.
Watch Cowboy Bebop’s Live-Action only on Netflix, 19th November 2021.
