Cowboy Bebop will premiere in its entirety on Hulu beginning December 19. The complete English dubbed version is set to launch in 2015.
Cowboy Bebop has been called the #1 gateway anime of all time, reaching non-anime watchers as well as piquing the interest of hardcore anime fans. The series is the newest addition to the vast library of top anime series available to stream on Hulu, which include Sailor Moon, Sailor Moon Crystal and Naruto Shippuden among others.
With its mélange of genres and adult-themed content, Cowboy Bebop aired on Adult Swim in the early 2000’s, and U.S. critics have hailed the series as a masterpiece praised for its style, characters, stories, exquisite animation and jazzy soundtrack.
The Bebop crew is just trying to make a buck. This motley lot of intergalactic loners team up to track down fugitives and turn them in for cold hard cash. Spike is a hero whose cool façade hides a dark and deadly past. The pilot, Jet, is a bruiser of a brute who can’t wait to collect the next bounty. Faye Valentine is a femme fatale prone to breaking hearts and separating fools from their money. Along for the ride are the brilliant, but weird, hacker Ed and a super-genius Welsh corgi named Ein. On their own, any one of them is likely to get lost in the vastness of space, but together, they’re the most entertaining gang of bounty hunters the year 2071 has ever seen.
