The English dub of “Cowboy Bebop” is widely considered to be one of the best dubs in all of anime. We spoke with several of the folks who brought it to life.
"Cowboy Bebop" first aired in Japan 25 years ago, from 1998 to 1999, and Bandai Entertainment soon imported it stateside, where it debuted on Cartoon Network block Adult Swim in 2001. If anything, it's become an even bigger (and more enduring) hit in the U.S. than in its homeland. A big reason for this popularity was because the English dub was excellent. /Film spoke with several of the dub cast/crew and learned how they recorded this terrific dub and managed to replicate lightning in a bottle.
