"That’s right legendary anime-visionary Shinichiro Watanabe hot off the heels of the success of Kids on the Slope has announced that he is currently working on two new series launching in 2013 and 2014.

The first of which series is slated to be produced by BONES and was described by Watanabe as “a space-travel action comedy”. This particular series is due to launch in 2013 and is being considered the spiritual successor to Cowboy Bebop, Watanabe’s most famous work."

Excellent, I can't think of any better news I could have heard today.

futurefrog2052d ago

best news in a long time right?

"Spiritual Successor" to Bebop huh; it'd be more awesome if it was an actual successor.

futurefrog2052d ago

I think either way it would be good

Nah spiritual successor is better. Cowboy Bebop had a fantastic ending and adding to it could possibly tarnish the overall impression of the show.

I'll just be happy to see something similar.

very excited to see what he has install!

Cowboy Bebop ended perfectly. I'd rather see a new work from Watanabe.

Regardless, this is fantastic news. Kids on the Slope proved Watanabe hasn't lost his touch.
