Cowboy Bebop Fans React To The Lost Session
Cowboy Bebop dropped a teaser trailer today and the fans have a lot of opinions about it. In the short clip, John Cho's Spike Spiegel, Mustafa Shakir's Jet Black, and Daniella Pineda's Faye Valentine are on the trail of another bounty. The stylistic action takes on a lot more shape in this trailer as they used the borders of manga panels as weapons and play with scene transitions. Clearly some fans like the approach, but there are also some who feel like the show just isn't doing enough to honor the legacy of the anime. This was always going to be some handwringing over a property like Cowboy Bebop. The animated series was beloved by a lot of fans of the genre and otherwise. Toss in the immediate link to the Toonami programming block in America and you have a lot of expectations from the word go. The cast and crew have said the right things, and the world now waits for the finished product on Netflix. Here are some of the awesome impressions.

Check out the show's official synopsis here:
"Cowboy Bebop is an action-packed space Western about three bounty hunters, aka "cowboys," all trying to outrun the past. As different as they are deadly, Spike Spiegel (John Cho), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir), and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) form a scrappy, snarky crew ready to hunt down the solar system's most dangerous criminals - for the right price. But they can only kick and quip their way out of so many scuffles before their pasts finally catch up with them."

Some mixed reaction
That Cowboy Bebop trailer isn’t what the whole show is like, right? pic.twitter.com/kaHRnPloUn— Matt Tomerlin 🏴☠️ (@MattTomerlin) October 19, 2021
Hopefully it goes well
My thoughts on Cowboy Bebop ‘The Lost Session’ are mixed
as a standalone I think this was a lot of fun but it’s also not the tone I want to see for the entire series
Yes Bebop has over the top comedy and wit but hoping for some serious moments as well— Parris (@vicious696) October 19, 2021
Gotta hear them out
This is such a good example of execution being more important than concept.
In concept: an American cowboy bebop live action show sounds bad
In execution: hell fuckin yes https://t.co/wqgLl08oqL— Kevin Pinheada (@kevinpanetta) October 19, 2021
