Cowboy Bebop's Stunning Opening Sequence Revealed By Netflix

Check out the title sequence for the live-action adaptation of the classic sci-fi anime.


The title sequence for Netflix's live-action Cowboy Bebop has been released. The opening to the highly-anticipated adaptation of the classic anime series was revealed during Tudum, the streaming giant's virtual fan event.

The sequence mirrors the iconic anime's opening in style, which sets the tone for the show.

Frankly, it's so good--and there's so much in there--that'll you'll almost certainly want to watch it a second time. And maybe a third. Check it out below:
