There are some really cool little tidbits in that, in addition to the pure joy of seeing Kanno conducting musicians, most of whom are wearing shirts with the name of one of their songs on them (of course it’s Tank”). One interesting note is that she’s only reusing about one-tenth of the music she originally made for the anime. Also, she doesn’t give any of the characters their own themes, instead preferring to write music based on situation and emotion. It’s a great clip that gives you really, really high expectations for the show (unfortunately, while our own Charles Pulliam-Moore admired the soundtrack in his review, the rest of the show didn’t fare so well).


You can make up your own mind very soon: Cowboy Bebop as well as its soundtrack are out on Friday.
