    Re: Cowboy Bebop live action adaptation

    I didn't even know this was based off anything. As such, my verdict is that the story line and the execution were about as good as the setting allows. Perhaps making it live action made the poor...

    I appreciate dedicating a separate flow for those who contribute on, and those who contribute on behalf of the site.
