We only have a teaser trailer and a list of writers, directors, producers and supervisors, but we just have to swing a jazz anime dark song in our heads. That's true: a late 1990s Japanese cartoon Cowboy Bebop returns. Like, um, live series?
Netflix released notification of news on Tuesday night, though unfortunately there was nothing in the way of a series of records because the cast was not selected. In addition, the discovery of the video skips the music, so it can not be said whether the original composer Yoko Kanno returns with unrepeatable noir-jazz chops. But the serial "assumptions – the four hunters of rewards who rotate the galaxy in search of hard meat kidnapping – seem to be intact," he says.
Netflix, in an apparent attempt to alleviate the anxiety of "uh live action?" the reaction immediately informed fans that the original animated series Director Shinichiro Watanabe will participate as a "consultant". The press release also confirmed that a series of "original Japanese production companies will share executive producer obligations, but the project does not seem to include other original employees – and postpones the first episode of writing duty to the West, Chris YostThor Ragnarok).
Although this announcement does not contain the expected release date (again, no cast!), It officially defeated the long-perverse project to the shock that Keanu Reeves has been associated with for years. The fans quickly reminded Netflix that they are already watching the live scenes of a quarrel, an imperfect crew of reward hunters who fly around the wild science fiction universe, and set for a gorgeous score of nylon strings. Cowboy Bebopis 26 episodes.
It's a little easier to get the enthusiasm of Netflix's next huge anime announcement, because it's a known quantity: Neon genesis evangelion Yippee he came to service in the spring of 2019. We mean the television series "Original Half of the 1990s, which has 26 episodes.
Netflix calls this "global debut", and it is a good news for anyone who has tried to pick up DVD or Blu-ray from a series of popular and influential series that have not seen print in the West for more than a decade. (If you can not wait for the series to return via Netflix, Amazon has a back … for under $ 590, from the time of printing.)
In addition, Netflix confirmed that will host the newest premiere Ultraman anime series – a conversion of the latest manga reboot of the original television series (Whew) – in April 2019. This fusion of hand-drawn and CGI animations was announced in late 2017, but Netflix's relationships with the project have become apparent weeks.
