Cowboy Bebop: “Title Sequence” - 1 min 46s

Fans of cult 90's anime series Cowboy Bebop have been hesitant in accepting Netflix's live-action adaptation of the beloved series, but the release of this title sequence seems to have smoothed potentially ruffled feathers. Viewers old and new are introduced to Spike Spiegel (John Cho), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir), and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) - a crew of bounty hunters attempting to outrun their pasts among the stars.

Sparky animation and the programme's distinctively punchy soundtrack are met with a riot of colour here, ensuring the eyes and ears are both locked in at full attention. This, in addition to comic book-style shifting visuals and dynamic transitions between scenes, will even intrigue those unfamiliar with the title, as echoes of Sin City and its ilk promise a stylish, engrossing visual treat.
