Yoko Kanno, who scored the unique anime, isn’t the only a single returning to Cowboy Bebop. The total, authentic voice forged is, too, and will be dubbing the reside-action Netflix show’s Japanese language track.

Which is suitable, not just some of the primary Japanese language solid, but the overall Japanese language cast. This is the initial time the comprehensive forged has been reunited in two decades—since the 2001 theatrical feature Cowboy Bebop: The Movie and since the authentic anime Tv series finished in 1998.

In accordance to Netflix Japan, the next voice actors will be returning to do the Japanese language dub: Koichi Yamadera as Spike, Taiten Kusunoki as Jet Black, Megumi Hayashibara as Faye, Norio Wakamoto as Vicious, Gara Takashima as Julia, Tsutomu Tareki as Punch, Miki Nagasawa as Judy, Takaya Hashi as Teddy Bomber, Masako Isobe as Mao, and Kenyu Horiuchi as Gren. Romi Park will also dub Shin, even though Hikaru Midorikawa will dub Lin.

It positive is remarkable Netflix obtained the total gang back again with each other. Properly done.

The are living-motion adaptation of Shinichiro Watanabe’s place noir about a team of bounty hunters stars John Cho as Spike Spiegel, Daniella Pineda as Faye Valentine, and Mustafa Shakir as Jet Black. Will the live-action Cowboy Bebop be any superior? Who understands! We’ll come across out next month. But Netflix’s record with reside-motion anime diversifications has been spotty. For case in point, its are living-motion Demise Take note was not nicely been given. Definitely, lessons have been uncovered, and upcoming dwell-action adaptations will be much better, no? Perhaps!

It’s fantastic that Netflix acquired the initial cast alongside one another (a hopeful signal!), and if you know Japanese, it may possibly be entertaining to skip the subtitles and convert on the Japanese language choice. And if the clearly show does suck, you can just near your eyes and pay attention along.

Cowboy Bebop beings streaming on Netflix setting up November 19.
