Netflix cancels Cowboy Bebop and said that there will be no more second season. The live-action anime adaption of the classic Japanese anime will not see the light anymore.
The annoucement was made in less than a month after first season’s released. During the shoot, John Cho was injured and it delayed the series by several months. (Personally we think John Cho did a good job)
The live-action series of Cowboy Bebop had the original author of the anime series Shinchiro Watanabe to as a consultant for the Netflix series but sadly it did not take off.
The series had very mixed reviews and it did not got into the top 10, this is not the first screw up for anime-adaptions. Previously, the Death Note anime adaption was so bad that it angered most of the anime fans.
Here is what most of the audiences said on Facebook
Audience A: “I’ve always wanted a live-action Cowboy Bebop. So, I’ve been watching it slowly since it debuted, knowing this might happen. You only get to experience something for the first time once. I’m on the final episode, and now I know it’ll be the last.“
Audience B: “I’m beyond disappointed. I’m angry. This was probably the best show I’ve watched on Netflix in over 6 months. I thought that show, and what they did with it was fantastic. I’m about done with Netflix as a whole. They cancel good shows like this and allow others that ate complete garbage to go on for 8 seasons. It’s ridiculous.”
Audience C: “It wasn’t a great show. They didn’t allow it to be its own thing and spent way too much time trying to make it a “live action cartoon”. The problem with live action anime adaptations is they feel they need to both “Americanize” it while trying to pander to the original fan base far too much. You end up with something that ultimately doesn’t really appeal to anyone.”
