Netflix is adapting Shinichiro Watanabe’s iconic anime Cowboy Bebop into a live-action series, and have been marketing it for the last month. Now, we finally have our first look at the show’s jazzy opening sequence that more or less faithfully attempts to recreate the same style and tone of the original anime’s classic opening.

Cowboy Bebop‘s opening sequence was released by Netflix over the weekend to a mostly warm reception. Using the vibrant and stylish opening of the anime and adding their own live-action spin to it, the show’s title sequence seems to go through similar visual cues while also teasing the villains, characters and settings to come in future episodes.
Cowboy Bebop is widely recognized as one of the all-time classic anime, following the adventures of a group of bounty hunters in space with conflicting personalities who must learn to deal with each other, as well as their dark pasts. Known for its standalone episodic stories, well-written side characters, and space exploration that takes us to colourful and often deadly worlds in the galaxy, Cowboy Bebop influenced many anime, shows and Hollywood movies to follow. John Cho, best known for Harold & Kumar and Star Trek, will play the protagonist Spike Spiegel, with Daniella Pineda as Faye Valentine, Mustafa Shakir as Jet Black, and Alex Hassell as the main antagonist, Vicious.
