The original Japanese anime “Cowboy Bebop” ran from 1998 to 2000 in its home country before Cartoon Network arm Adult Swim picked up the show, a first for the creative nighttime programming block. A new generation of western audiences was introduced to anime, and the series spawned a manga, a video game, a feature animated film, and now a live-action series.
If all this music makes you nostalgic for the o.g., Netflix has you covered there, too. The original “Cowboy Bebop” is currently streaming alongside its live-action counterpart, proving once again that whether or not you like the new iteration, the original will always be there. In the meantime, enjoy this performance, presented by Netflix, of the original “Tank!” theme, performed by none other than Kanno performing with Seatbelts.
