Robo-Geisha is one crazy movie +

Bit NSFW. Well, I’ve never been one to shy away from crazy Japanese cult movies. As a matter of fact, I didn’t think I would find one that topped Tokyo Gore Police. Silly me. Leave it to the minds that created Machine Girl and Tokyo Gore Police to team up and create this over the […]

A 3 foot horror story +

The bathroom in many homes is a very lonely room. You only visit it when you need something, and not for the pleasant atmosphere the room provides. So is it really hard to believe that the lonely bathrooms around the world holds a deep seated grudge for the humans that use it? I think not. […]

A real Hello Kitty +

If you are reading this website right now, I would find it very hard for you to not know what Hello Kitty is. One could argue that it is one of the most well known Japanese brands right up there with Honda and Sony. This video has nothing to do with Hello Kitty other than […]

Kids vs Zombies +

So, Andrea subliminally tricked me into purchasing Left 4 Dead on Steam, and I have been enjoying playing it for the past few days now. Funnily enough, I have to play Louis everytime I play online because well… my real name is Louis and I’m African-American. You may be wondering what zombies have to do […]

Ichi the Killer Bento +

Gore movies are one of my many favorites from Japan. The last one I watched was Tokyo Gore Police a few months ago. What can I say about that besides it was unbelievably gory… As for the actual story, I think I could of written something better as weekend homework in the 4th grade. But […]

Naoto Fukasawa’s Fruit Juice +

They say that the way food or drinks look plays a major influence on how well we like it. I would have to agree. These are some awesome fruit juice packaging from Industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa. Looking at the strawberry box, it looks as if the packaging may even feel like the specific fruit it […]

Mini Nikon SLR in Japanese candy +

Gilco is one of Japan’s oldest candy companies, and is home to the popular Glico caramel candy as well as the legendary Pocky. For about 80 years now, inside the Glico caramel candy boxes there is a small toy called “Omake of Glico” (Small gift of Glico). It started off as little toys kids would […]

Space Invaders Bank +

Tomy has done it again. If you are old enough to remember space invaders, this functioning bank will trigger your nostalgia reflex. Personally I remember the game, but I’m too young to remember the actual table. We did have a functioning Atari when I was a child though. Ah. Memories.

Live Action Cowboy Bebop movie +

Live Action Cowboy Bebop movie

A live action version of Cowboy Bebop is in the works by FOX. Truthfully, I’m more concerned with this movie being good than with Dragonball, which is also being developed by FOX.

Erwin Stoff is the director. He is best known for his work on The Matrix, and A Scanner Darkly. So while I don’t doubt he can deliver, staying true to the anime from Sunrise is going to be the greatest concern. Upon meeting with Stoff, the parties involved quickly brought up his experience with A Scanner Darkly, and how he stayed extremely faithful to the original work by Philip K. Dick.

Cowboy Bebop ranks in the top 3 of my favorite anime of all time. Galaxy Express 999 and Boogiepop Phantom sit there as well. So for now, this is reassurance that he won’t wreck one of my favorite anime of all time.

Is FOX trying to capitalize on the growing anime market with these live action adaptations?

    Cowboy Bebop EpisodeNo Gravatar Says:

    At first i was really freaked out about the idea of neo playing spike, but then i went and re watched the series.
    The dialog isn’t really what drives the story of cowboy bebop, it is the music that sets the scene. As long as they can pull that off, and not have some cruddy emo band on the soundtrack, then I will be happy.
