Netflix has announced a live-action Cowboy Bebop reboot… and we think it’s a TERRIBLE idea! They’ve also announced that Neon Genesis Evangelion will finally come to the streaming giant, but will it retain its beloved original voice cast for the dub?
“The beloved and deeply disturbing anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion is heading to Netflix. All 26 episodes, as well as films The End of Evangelion & Evangelion: Death (True)2, will be available to stream come spring 2019.
Set 15 years after a cataclysmic event, Evangelion follows a mysterious organization called Nerv as they fight against alien invaders known as Angels. The only thing stopping another disaster is a group of teenagers who pilot giant mechs known as Evangelion units.
Netflix already offers a fair mix of anime, from beloved shows like Naruto, Death Note, and Fullmetal Alchemist to newer series like Devilman Crybaby, Aggretsuko, and Castlevania. The streaming service will also add Rilakkuma and Kaoru, Saint Seiya: Knights of the Zodiac, and Ultraman next year.
Evangelion first aired in 1995, and it remains one of the most celebrated and influential anime to date. Heavily doused in religious imagery, the show explores themes of depression and existential dread. Its arrival on Netflix marks the first time the show will be available to stream, which means a whole new generation of anime lovers will have the chance to celebrate and be scarred by its unforgettable story.”
“Netflix has announced a new live-action series based on the much-loved 1998 anime Cowboy Bebop. The streaming service is co-producing the 10-episode series with Tomorrow Studios. No release date has been set as of yet.
Netflix describes Cowboy Bebop as “the jazz-inspired, genre-bending story of Spike Spiegel, Jet Black, Faye Valentine and Radical Ed: a rag-tag crew of bounty hunters on the run from their pasts as they hunt down the solar system’s most dangerous criminals.” Cowboy Bebop originally ran for 26 episodes and is renowned for its unique blend of noir and western influences. It also has a very good jazzy soundtrack by Yoko Kanno.”
