“It’s not cowboy bebop” – the creator of the popular anime reveals in an interview how little he thinks of the Netflix adaptation. This has now been reinstated, so Shinichiro Watanabe can say what’s going on.

After a very long development time, the Cowboy Bebop series had hardly been released when many people immediately realized: This could go on the pile of bad anime adaptations from Netflix. Accordingly, the SciFi series was canceled less than a month after its release on December 9, 2021 – and rightly so in the eyes of many viewers. These are indirectly joined by Shinichiro Watanabe, creator of the original Cowboy Bebop anime. In an interview with Forbes, he was asked what he thought of the adaptation.
