Cowboy Bebop Fans Can't Get Enough of Live-Action Ein

There is little doubt that fans are getting excited about the live-action series adaptation of Cowboy Bebop. However, it looks like one character has overtaken Jon Cho (or his fabulous hair) as the most awesome reveal in the show's first photos. Fans just can't get enough of the live-action version of the adorable Ein, the Bebop's resident smart corgi.

Netflix recently unveiled our first look at the Cowboy Bebop live-action series. The images show Cho as Spike Spiegel, Daniella Pineda as Faye Valentine, and Mustafa Shakir as Jet Black. In one of the photos, the trio is accompanied by a Pembroke Welsh corgi who will play Ein.

The fluffy canine is barely visible in the image but that hasn't stopped fans from freaking out over how Ein is the best thing about Cowboy Bebop.


In the anime, Spike decided to bring Ein to the Bebop after failing to collect a bounty. Although he originally appears to be a regular dog, Ein is capable of several things like answering the phone, driving a car, and playing shogi. Needless to say, we can wait to see Ein in live-action this November.

For now, the official Cowboy Bebop trailer has not yet been released. However, there is a good chance that the first teaser will be dropped very soon. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.

Cowboy Bebop will also star Alex Hassell as Vicious and Elena Satine as Julia. All ten episodes of the adaptation's first season are expected to air on Netflix on November 19, 2021.
