First Look: Cowboy Bebop Blu-ray Premium Editions and Trailer – Available December 16

Cowboy Bebop Blu-ray Exclusive Box First Look

After the recent announcement of an HD release of Cowboy Bebop, one of the most celebrated animes of our generation, it was only a matter of time before more details came rolling out. FUNimation has now released an official trailer along with special features details and premium edition artwork first looks. Check them out after the break.

I’ve been on a big anime kick lately. Recently, I became enamored with Attack on Titan; I devoured Kill la Kill; and will embark on Gurren Lagann very soon. But Cowboy Bebop will be my first love. Based on the premium editions below, I would be more prone to go for the Amazon bundle because I love art books and would be fascinated to see what they behold. The box is also more convenient than a vinyl record sleeve to sit in a bookshelf. But for those jazz fans out there, the FUNimation exclusive premium edition might be the one for you; it’s also about $30 cheaper too.

The Cowboy Bebop Blu-ray box set special features consists of the following:
