Based on that title alone, if you’re one of the many fans who flatly rejected Netflix’s live-action Cowboy Bebop, then you might already know that the crew member in question failed before you even figured out their identity.
Despite creating a wave of noise and momentum as one of the platform’s hottest-anticipated shows, the anime adaptation landed with a wide array of critics and audiences, though still has been on the Top 10 most viewed list since it first appeared ten days ago .
The score of 48% on Rotten Tomatoes and 53% of user reviews is much lower than Netflix expected, while those familiar with the source material strongly disagree with John Cho’s assessment that Cowboy Bebop is a big fan of written fiction.
One area of praise, however, is apparel design, just as wardrobe designer Jane Holland revealed to Still watching Netflix that she was warned by no less authority than teenagers to do the right thing.
“You know, there are a few teenagers in my house who have friends who watch anime. When I first got the job, I said, ‘Do any of you know? Cowboy Bebop? ‘. And they said, ‘What? Cowboy Bebop? Great.’ They know anime and I said, ‘No, no, no, we’re doing a live-action.’ And they said, ‘Oh, what?’ and then they just say, ‘Don’t say it’. What I really want is for those teenagers to be like, ‘No, you didn’t make it’. “
We will be very interested to see if Cowboy Bebop ends with a second season extension, or if a general feeling of unease making it Netflix’s latest high-profile victim, but most people would agree that Holland closed her bargain.
