Bestbuy has the steelbook edition of Cowboy Bebop at a reduced price. Nothing new added to the previous blu-ray release. Picture and sound are great and is at the original 4x3 ratio.

You're closer, but surprisingly...it was a decade earlier with the original Thundercats. At least that's when the seeds were planted.

Both original and 2011 (amazing) versions are streaming on Hulu now. I watched a few of the originals and they hold up pretty amazingly.
I haven't heard anyone talk about the 2011 reboot. I bought it on bluray but haven't watched yet. Reviewers said it was a more adult take on Thundercats (which makes sense)

Definitely more adult-oriented, but so was the original series back in the smurf/he-man 80s era.

Imho, the 2011 series was incredibly watchable and it was a shame it got cut short (but it didn't end on a cliffhanger or anything).
The creator, Michael Jelenic (interestingly, the same guy who makes Teen Titans Go) paid his dues to the original while refreshing the series enough to work 25 years later. Animation is beautiful and the storylines are deep and complex.

I recently watched it, loved it, and am happy for you (a fan enough to already have it) cause I'm sure you'll love it too!

My attention for anime was captured by Gatchaman (G-Force: Battle of the Planets) or whatever they called it in the US... anyone else remember this?

Back in 1978...

Yes, Robotech and Voltron and others continued the influence in the USA... but for me this was the first...

If you want to relive your glory days, the complete gatchaman collection was released on bluray. Over 45 hours

This show seems responsible for making anime popular in the West.

Some shows aren't released on blu-ray so someone that enjoys television or movies must make a decision to own a standard definition set or not own it at all.

If you are the type of person to not do your research on a show, or to make a decision on media based strictly on the format it's released on, you're severally limiting yourself. Based on your comment I suspect you've severally limited yourself. Based on your comment you hope others would limit themselves too. Luckily most people are smarter than that.

All Blu Ray's are DVDs. All DVDs are not Blu rays.

You didn't know the struggle back in the day...
I totally agree with you! It was really hard to find and acquire when there weren't many options in North America.
Back in my day fans subbed the anime. You had trading/buying sites/anime fansub forums where people would ship you 1-6 episodes on a vhs tape through the mail. Once digisubs became a thing, p2p apps taking off like napster and kazaa, this killed the fansub vhs scene

If all BluRays are DVDs, then at least some DVDs are BluRays.

Also, where did you learn that from? Nothing I was able to find online suggests that's the case.

No, unfortunately. These are just nice quality BluRays in a sweet aluminum case. They have a code for a digital copy too.

DVD stands for Digital Video Disc, which is what a Blu-ray disc is. So Blu-ray is a DVD, but an actual DVD isn't a Blu-ray. He's being literal.

I feel like it was DBZ.
DBZ made it popular in the West but Cowboy Beebop helped expand that Anime could be more than just kids in the Western mentality. It was a staple of the prime time and late night Cartoon Network scene that made that network much more popular in its day.

Quote from Nickolascrespo
:
It was Dragon Ball Z, Sailor Moon, and Cowboy Bebop that really exploded anime into the west. Original dragon ball had middling popularity, so DBZ didn't really gain traction and viewership until 2-3 years into the show. Sailor Moon was really good and brought female audiences in (shows were marketed towards boys heavily back then because businesses were sexist and said "only boys buy action figures so don't make girl stuff" ). Cowboy Bebop aired with Toonami which had just moved timeslots to the evening (but before it moved to Saturdays) and was the final blow casual audiences needed to really bring anime popularity to the west. All those shows helped in their own ways, Cowboy Bebop is often just credited as the defacto "brought anime over" show because it was the last big one before it was normalized
Wow completely forgot about Sailor Moon....wasn't my cup of tea but I also remember the live action Sailor Moon. I still remember the struggles trying to get quality anime in the 80s and early 90s. I still remember Street Fighter the Animated Movie and some crap comic store was selling VHS copies for $25 when they got it for free from a fansubber. Post office hated my house... I was constantly sending out VHS tapes and received fansubbed anime on VHS and SVHS every day for a year.
