What is the plot of Cowboy Bebop ?
In the year 2071, most of humanity has colonized the planets and rocky moons of the solar system. About fifty years before, the Earth had remained uninhabitable after an accident with a hyperspace door. In the midst of the increasing crime rate throughout the solar system, the Inter-Solar System Police legalize bounty hunters. Known as “Cowboys”, they chase criminals through the solar system and bring them to justice.
Following these criminals is the crew of the spaceship Bebop. Spike Siegal, former assassin and exile member of the Red Dragon union and his partner Jet Black, former ISSP officer. The bewitching swindler Faye Valentine, Edward Wong the eccentric hacker girl and finally Ein the adorable Welsh Corgi genetically engineered with human intelligence.
Who is in the cast of Cowboy Bebop ?
The following cast members have been confirmed star in Cowboy Bebop :
|Role||Cast member||Where did I see / hear them before?|

Rumors spread by a Bebop blog that a Husky was chosen as Ein instead of a Welsh Corgi.
According to the Bebop blog a Netflix spokesman commented on the change in the dog breed for Ein:
Nothing in the story says that Ein must be a Corgi and, honestly, a restart that precisely mimics the source material is boring. We've already seen that story.
The answer after the question about the potential kickback of the fans was very intriguing:
Just like the kind from which the show takes its name, sometimes it is better to do what is unexpected, what has never been done before. This is Bebop's ethics, and we are trying. We are sure that the real fans of the show will embrace this choice.
The “declaration” made was most likely false for a number of reasons. First of all, using the phrase “real fans” is a way to really tie the fan base together. The last thing you want to do is question the fans who love the franchise.
Second, writer and executive producer Christoper Yost acknowledged the rumors on Twitter and clarified any confusion about the race of Ein.
in the almost three years I worked on it, I didn't It was a single day in which ein was nothing but a Welsh corgi. # Bebop cowboy

Make fans of Cowboy Bebop Do you really want a live-action adaptation?
This is completely subjective among the fans themselves, so it's difficult for an outlet to tell what fans want or don't want.
This does not mean that live-action titles do not have their own fan base. If they didn't, no study in their right mind would continue to do it.
The general enthusiasm among fans when it comes to a live adaptation of classic anime titles is very poor. In most cases, live-action adaptations have failed to impress both critics and fans. Whether it's a slight alteration of character design or changes to the story, it is very difficult to impress when there is probably an already superior product available.
So now I learned the live action Cowboy Bebop has a husky who plays Ein, not a corgi. Jokes aside, @ netflix what the fuck? Why are you ruining the whole big anime ??

Fortunately we now know that the series will adhere to the original material and Ein will be a Welsh Corgi. Regardless, for a while the fans thought that Ein was chosen to be a Husky and this made many fans angry. Moving away from the source material is a way to really put off fans of a new adaptation.
