‘Cowboy Bebop’ Makes its HD Debut on Blu-ray December 16

Cowboy Bebop The Complete Series HD Blu-ray Release

Okay. Three. Two. One. Let’s jam! Funimation announced today their plans to rerelease, in beautiful HD, one of the most celebrated anime series of our time, Cowboy Bebop. Since its original run from 1997 to 1998, nothing has truly compared to this hip, futuristic space western noir. After the jump, check out what special features come packaged with the premium edition when it releases on December 16.

I remember staying up late, watching Adult Swim on Cartoon Network and being amazed by the sheer vibrant story telling that is Cowboy Bebop. I had seen nothing like it at the time. The music; the fluidity of the hand drawn space battles and fight sequences; and the incredibly written characters are just a fraction of the elements that make up this series. It’s love at first sight. And to watch Cowboy Bebop in high definition, I can only imagine my eyeballs melting from pure joy.

  • FUNimation Exclusive Premium Edition
    • Complete TV series on Blu-ray and DVD (combo pack)
    • Exclusive Limited Edition tri-fold packaging in the style of a vintage record cover
