COWBOY BEBOP – THOUGHTS

Binge watched first ten episodes over the last few days (late November). Really enjoyed it with only a minimal purview of the comics and anime (Google, Wikipedia, wiki). It’s a mashup, no arguments there but some of the online critics are getting very intense in their nitpicking (looking at you, James Whitbrook). So much so that i have to wonder if the criticism is because they take themselves way too seriously or because they didn’t get what they consider their ‘due’ in the marketing roll out.

The world building is a little fuzzy, yes, but not enough to be distracting. The characterizations are all over the place but put together this makes a spicy mix. Whining about the corgi (EIN) not getting enough screen time is tedious – bringing Edward and Ein in at the end of E10 undercuts that criticism (ha!).

All in all, I’m looking forward to the next batch
