How exciting is this? Let’s all remember how awesome Cowboy Bebop was. From great music, fantastic art and animation, to stellar voice acting from not even the Japanese voice actors, but also from the American voice cast. All around flawless series with a great ending. Well, finally Cowboy Bebop will be coming to Blu-Ray in the United States, and people will be screaming with joy!
The classic anime available on Blu-ray and Digital for the first time ever in the U.S. from FUNimation December 16th 2014.
Synopsis: The Bebop crew is just trying to make a buck. This motely lot of intergalactic loners teams up to track down fugitives and turn them in for cold hard cash. Spike is a hero whose cool façade hides a dark and deadly past. The pilot Jet is a bruiser of a brute who can’t wait to collect the next bounty. Faye Valentine is a femme fatale prone to breaking hearts and separating fools from their money. Along for the ride are the brilliant, but weird, hacker Ed and a super-genius Welsh Corgi named Ein. On their own, any one of them is likely to get lost in the sprawl of space, but together, they’re they most entertaining gang of bounty hunters in the year 2071.
