Cowboy bebop is one of the best anime series that I have ever seen. This is no simple statement since I am usually pretty picky about which of the many anime series out there that I watch. To be truthful, I don’t watch nearly as much anime as I did when I was a teenager. Surprisingly, this series has stuck in my memory for over a decade. I could name a hundred reasons why, but I think that it is easiest to sum up with “Just give it a shot and watch it if you haven’t seen it yet”. Bebop really impacted my teenage years. In fact, I have mentioned this in an earlier article about how Radical Edward influenced my love for computers and technology.
The other day, I found it amazingly exciting to read that the Cowboy Bebop series was being released on DVD and Blu-ray in North America. This is AWESOME! I’ve been waiting a really long time to own this series but always had trouble finding it. Now that this has been announced, I can’t wait to get it. Unfortunately, it is just August, and the release is scheduled for December of this year.
Now remember, this announcement came when Funimation acquired the rights to Cowboy Bebop and many other titles from Bandai Entertainment. I’m pretty late to the party, but really happy that this was brought to my attention. December, please hurry….and this year, leave the snow behind. Thanks.
