The new Netflix series “Cowboy Bebop” has shocked many online subscribers. Fan opinions were split between liking him or hating him. Twitter was immediately inundated with reactions and memes about the live action after its trailer dropped.
Arguably Netflix doesn’t have the best track record for anime adaptations. His live action series like “Death Note” and “Fullmetal Alchemist” have been ridiculed by many anime fans. This is why others are skeptical of the upcoming “Cowboy Bebop” series.
For reference, “Cowboy Bebop” is a classic Japanese animated series. It was first created in 1998 and was later adapted into a manga series that same year. The series features some controversial adult-themed content, which ended up being its biggest draw.

Notably, there is some hope for the series. According to Cnet, the Sunrise studio, which is responsible for the original version of the anime, is the executive producer. Christopher Yost, best known for writing the animated series “The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes,” also wrote the adaptation.
“Cowboy Bebop” will air on Netflix from November 19. It only has 10 episodes.
Netflix Reactions “Cowboy Bebop”: Should You Watch The Series?
As mentioned earlier, fan reactions split into two opinions. Some were eagerly awaiting it, while others criticized its trailer. Here are some of the best reactions recorded on the internet.
As Twitter user @ Shrekira2onDVD pointed out, fans had no choice on “Cowboy Bebop” and “Legend of Korra” coming to Netflix.
Now that both are on Netflix, you have no choice but to witness Cowboy Bebop and Legend of Korra in all their glory.

If you find it hard to appreciate “Cowboy Bebop”, at least appreciate the cute dog.

Critical Opinions of “Cowboy Bebop” Live
On the other hand, some “Cowboy Bebop” fans saw serious issues with the show.
Twitter users @TopKekCat have listed some of the obvious mistakes in the live adaptation. It’s bad lighting, stiff movements, cartoonish lines, and a lousy soundtrack choice.
While it’s supposed to have a new soundtrack, it’s just a matter of reusing music from the anime. How does he get points for it? How does it fit into a cannon expansion when Spike has apparently changed his name? Why does he keep holding back Faye? They don’t understand these characters

But the biggest problem for “Cowboy Bebop” comes down to one question: Where’s Ed?

Missing Ed and Spike not using a Jericho 941 definitely confuses a lot of fans.

As Twitter user @Dekkysaurus noted, “It’s not Bebop without Ed and Ein.”
