To mark the 20th anniversary (!!!) of Cowboy Bebop, a special screening of the original TV series plus the theatrical feature “Heaven’s Door” will be held at Tachikawa Cinema City in the Tachikawa suburb of Tokyo.


Dubbed “Cowboy Bebop: 20th Anniversary Special Nights”, an especially remastered version will be screened, to take advantage of new technologies in sound quality, and bring the best out of the show’s memorable soundtrack.

The first 13 episodes are scheduled for the 18th of August 2018, while the remaining 13 episodes will be screened on the 25th of August 2018. The screening of the first 13 episodes will be coupled with a special talk show with Director Shinichiro Watanabe about the music of the show, entitled “Sound Bebop”.

On the other hand, the screening of the last 13 episodes will likewise be accompanied by a special talk show featuring character designer Toshihiro Kawamoto about the visuals of the series, and will be titled “Image Bebop”. Meanwhile, “Cowboy Bebop: Heaven’s Door” will be screened for one week, from the 25th to the 31st of August 2018.
