Cowboy Bebop’s 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray Sets Coming This April!

25 years? Really? I remember the first time Cowboy Bebop was announced on Cartoon Network. I feel so old now. Well, at least I can finally throw away those old VHS tapes because Cowboy Bebop is getting a bonus-packed new Blu-ray release to celebrate its 25th anniversary.

The Blu-rays are available in a Special Edition for $64.98 or The Limited Edition for $84.98 through Amazon. The only difference listed between the two versions is the inclusion of (5) art cards in the more expensive set.

All special features, interviews, and audio commentaries are the same. All episodes contain the original Japanese and English dubs in Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround sound. Some of the bonus features are not in HD 1080p.

Check out the complete breakdown of what each disc includes below:
