“Okay. 3, 2, 1. Let’s Jam!”
Watching Cowboy Bebop for the first time. It is a lot of fun. Such a vibrant world it depicts and so much of it just oozes cool. The soundtrack is great too, not just that fantastic title music.
Speaking of Firefly, a lot of people claim that it is complete rip-off off Bebop. Can’t say I see a huge amount of parallels yet, but perhaps those come later. There is a slight Western flavour, but that seems rather surface level and isn’t played particularly straight.
Also, I finished off Alice in Borderland. Very enjoyable show and left me looking forward to more. The origins of it being a from a manga are evident throughout and although I wasn’t familiar with the source material, I could easily see that this was authentic to it and really brought the pages to life.
The last couple of episodes could have probably been done as a single episode, but for the most part I didn’t feel it suffered from the usual Netflix issue of being too long. I also didn’t get bored of the central premise, even if it did result in a few episodes following a similar structure.
Really recommend checking it out.
See you space cowboy.
