Anime fans are surely celebrating the news that a live-action Cowboy Bebop TV show is in the works. Cowboy Bebop first started life as a 26-episode anime in Japan. It became a hit and later spawned two manga series. Cowboy Bebop eventually made its way over to the U.S. where it developed a cult following.
The decision to create a live-action Cowboy Bebop is a bit of a surprise as Hollywood hasn't had all that much success in that area. The live-action "Ghost in the Shell" was a critical and commercial flop, as was the live-action version of "Dragon Ball Z." One thing the live-action Cowboy Bebop adaption has going for it is a loyal fanbase and an easily digestible plot (space bounty hunters catching criminals across the galaxy).
