Canonically, is Jet Black actually black?

So Spike, Faye, Vicious, and Julia can be 20-37 years old, and Jet Black can be 34-53 years old, but Radical Ed must be exactly 14 years old? :thinking: :confused:

Also, they’re casting Vicious and Julia when this is only going to be a 10 episode series? Won’t that be pretty rushed? As I recall, in the anime those characters only really came out in the final episodes, and weren’t there for the bulk of the show for all the episode-of-the-week hijinks?


So maybe they’ll do away with the episode of the week hijinks and get at the meat of the series, plus more than likely each episode with be +/-50 min. - about 2 1/2 episodes of the anime. Or like the anime they may be teased in the live-action for a potential 2nd season if it gets the views/subscriptions.



That’s pretty likely, I agree. It’s also concerning as many of these Netflix shows that I’ve seen go for episodes that are 50+ minutes long wind up with bloated episodes that seem to drag on too long.

From what I remember, basically every Bebop episode goes: the crew is flat broke, they take a bounty and, just before making a big windfall, zany hijinks ensue, causing them to wind up broke all over again. I wonder how Netflix will handle that without the pacing slowing down or it seeming too repetitive.

…why isn’t Netflix making another Bebop anime?


They should… :wink:
