The anime goes for a straight adaptation this time, I would go for the anime, just for the extra punch of the VAs work.

You'll soon be laughing at the well animated piano scene, like the rest of us! Its not bad, its just... ridiculously well animated. Why did they spend so much animation budget on that?

I really don't understand this dude's storytelling. But somehow, I keep watching so I guess its working?

I've just watched it myself and I agree it is a good watch, though i've not read the manga but some explanation would be nice to explain the motive behind why Hathaway is doing what he is doing to the Earth Federation in the film. Which i'm hoping maybe in the sequel movie(assuming there is one) will explain it bit more.

Fruits Basket was perfect.
The only thing it lacks and they should have included is the old anime prince Yuki fanfare in the first episode, that shit was hilarious.

Whatever happened to the composer who scored Cowboy Bebop and the original GITS series of anime?

She, Yoko Kanno, started working on the live-action Cowboy Bebop this year in collaboration with Netflix.

Other works: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yoko_Kanno#Anime_works

IIRC, a lot of Cowboy Bebop was fully impromptu. I know I listen to the harmonica tracks sometimes (I tried to study Harmonica years ago...) and its basically a collection of "Jazzy sound improv", which probably was more of the work of the player than the composer. Well... you know Jazz. The "composer" to Jazz pieces rely heavily upon the individual player's improv-skills. Its just the nature of that genre of music.

So something like "Tank" (the opening) was probably largely composed. But switch it up to "Spokey Dokey", and I bet that this song is more freeform.


Spokey Dokey is listed as "The Seatbelts" (the same band, led by Yoko Kanno, who did the famous "Tank" opening to Cowboy Bebop). I can't seem to figure out who the harmonica player was exactly. Seems like Yoko Kanno is the pianist (keyboard???), but the Wikipedia page is pretty vague on that.

---------

Anyway, given how much Jazz is about the individual players / musicians just going off on Improv for minutes at a time... nothing will ever quite sound like the original Cowboy Bebop soundtrack. Future Jazz pieces, even by the same composer, will only be ephemerally related. Its just how the genre goes.

It's too bad The Seatbelts never toured, I would've bought a ticket to see one of their gigs -- although they wouldn't have much of a playlist I guess.

I can only imagine how bad a live-action Cowboy Bebop made in the USA would be...

Yeah. Given Netflix's other live action adaptations... I don't have much hope. Still, Yoko Kanno being attached to the project gives hope that the music will at least be good.

US live action adaptations of Japanese anime are something I boycott.
Has anyone seen the Attack on Titan movies? How good were they?

Garbage as far as im aware, one of the best live adaptation i've seen so far is the Rurouni Kenshin movies(there is 4 now) which noone actually talks about from the anime community. Which maybe its because of the author(child pornography)?
They are available on netflix so definitely worth checking out at least.

The author of the Rurouni Kenshin manga, Nobuhiro Watsuki, seems to have got off lightly for his crime:
'Such a heinous crime somehow resulted in hardly any consequences. His legal punishment was a fine of only 200,000 yen, equivalent to $1,780. Watsuki was suspended for only half a year before he was back to work at Shueisha, the publishing company behind the Shonen Jump line of magazines, and writing The Hokkaido Arc as usual. That he got off so lightly for a crime that involved the exploitation and abuse of real children when the Japanese legal system punishes nonviolent drug crimes much more severely sparked outrage.'
I'm surprised that they hired him back, is that because his manga sells well?
