If I know anything about fandom is that the fans of a show love it when you make huge changes. For example. Everyone loved the changes they made to Terry Pratchett's live action The Watch.

So I'm sure everyone will be fine that there's no sign of Radical Edward in the series.

I had watched anime without realizing it was anime as a kid with stuff like Speed Racer, but my first anime series that I was intentionally getting into anime to try was the Cowboy Bebop Best Sessions DVD collection.  Total blind buy for me.  I immediately went and got the complete series after that and was fully onboard anime at that point.

Personally i find very few animations translate well to live aciton.
i believe the very nature of characters being animated, and looking not exactly real world, is what gives their characters some of their traits, and is what allows for better Temporary Suspension of Disbelief, when we watch animations do inhuman stuff instead of watch real humans move and behave like not exactly us in IRL.


Like bad physics are so much more ok in animations than CIG to look real but still conform to cartoon physics.


TF2 animations can be whatever. animations is as not real as their premises.
while CoD characters just come off as totally weird-o fake world of doofs with track suits and silly hats fighting a war.

Like Fortnite and Apex works for being cartoony and would face planted if it was running the real life atheistic of CoD.

Yeah, unless you count the stuff like Transformers and Thundercats.  The first anime I consciously watched was Beebop.  After that, I went back to Vampire Hunter D, Ninja Scrolls, Demon City Shinjuku, and Miyazaki

Technically it was Urusei Yatsura 2: Beautiful Dreamer, a 1984 movie about a group of high school kids (one of which was an invading alien and the protagonist's unrequited lover) who get caught up in an especially surreal situation.

I rewatched it recently and while it shows its age, it holds up for the most part. I'd still recommend it. Excellent movie to watch while sleepy.

Cowboy Bebop was the first series that both captured and held my attention (I mean, I tried Dragon Ball Z but ugh!).

I loved Saturday Anime. My dad turned me on to it strangely enough. Vampire Hunter D, Ghost in the Shell, Tank Police. I filled up loads of VHS tapes with those recordings until I was old enough to buy my own uncensored copies.

It's going to be awful and anyone thinking otherwise is not a fan of the original or good things in general. Western companies should just stick to occasionally funding Japanese works but should stay the hell away from adaptations or trying to influence them. Stay in your damn lane.

I love Yoko Kano...but the older I get the more I understand how much of her work is straight lifted from other musicians work.... now I feel the same out her "original" sound tracks as I do about John Williams.

conflicted.

don't believe me... listen to this Buddy Rich track and tell me you couldn't swap it into any episode of Cowboy BeepBop and no one would notice

Dragon Ball Z was probably my gateway as a kid in the late 90s, but Cowboy Bebop was definitely an early influence.  Adult Swim had some incredibly good stuff in those days.  Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Lupin, GitS...

Does Battle of the Planets and Star Blazers count?  Those were probably the first for me. I had friends who were into Robotech that I tried to get into but it was too freakin long. It wasn't until Akira when I fully "got" anime.

Transformers and Thundercats were both American cartoon productions.  Transformers is a US created IP developed to market rebranded Japanese toys originally produced for multiple separate toylines, Thundercats was to market original toys, a la He Man or GI Joe

Voltron, Speed Racer, and G-Force were subbed anime though.

My Theory: John Wick is the result of a redlit 2011 push to make a Cowboy Bebop movie.

Think about it. There's a lot of parallels in the story.

Nah it was the first Unico movie on the Disney channel for me. Followed by the sequel movie in grade school ("It's cartoons, this couldn't possibly traumatize the children."). But I sure as hell watched Bebop when it showed up.

I almost skipped Cowboy Bebop, because the ads/trailers I'd seen all showed nothing but stupid spaceships making impossible maneuvers. I was channel-surfing late one night and came across the show (the episode with Spike and Jet eating boiled eggs), and got hooked by the story.

Technically, yes (the best kind of correct!)
Robotech = Super Dimension Fortress Macross + Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross + Genesis Climber Mospeada)
Macross is more or less the same story so you could get away with it being a gateway anime though, however, most of us kids watching it in the 80s just thought it was a cool Saturday morning cartoon with jets dog-fighting.

(My D&D group introduced me to Akira, Demon City Shinjuku, a Wind Name Amnesia, and 5 Star Stories in the early 90s. That was my official introduction to anime when I knew it was anime.)

I keep seeing it on Prime (dubbed) and I can't bring myself to watch it even though I really want to rewatch it.

It's not the story or animation, it's the dubbing. That era of the 90s was truly terrible when it came to the dubs. Cowboy Bebop was probably the first anime I watched that proved a dub could be acceptable. However, learning Japanese also made me biased to never watching dubs if it could be avoided.

Oh man, UY:BD is one of my favorites. Its just so weird but it works. I should totally watch that again. I never got into the rest of UY, but that one, wow.

Let's see - Pokemon was on in the mornings when I got ready for school. Sailor Moon in the afternoons. I would say renting Ranma 1/2 was more of the gateway for me, when the anime just kind of clicked and then I rented EVERYTHING. My parents didn't put a parental lock on the Hollywood Video card, and I ended up renting some explicit stuff not knowing because I had to rent ALL THE ANIME when I was a young teenager.

My gateway series was The Slayers, and my other early favorites were Evangelion, Urusei Yatsura, Ramna 1/2, Serial Experiments Lain, Fushigi Yuugi, and, yes, Cowboy Bebop.

Good stuff.  I adore all of those shows.

There's good stuff out there now, too, but the selection is a lot wider, and a lot of it is too self-aware for my tastes.  The best recent one I've seen has been Psycho Pass.

I gave anime a fair shake, it never really was for me as a genre overall but I can point to individual works that I like.  But I LOVE Cowboy Bebop.

/Samurai Champloo was good too, once it figured out what it wanted to be.  By the end of the show, I was really digging it
