■ Thinking about the monitoring of Japanese leading science fiction animation that celebrated the 25th anniversary of 2023.

"Cowboy Bebop" is a science fiction animation work produced in 1998 by Sunrise. It is a stylish and small science fiction hard -boiled animation that has a stylish dialogue, an attractive character, and a good song sense. It has been highly evaluated not only in Japan but also in the world as a science fiction animation for more than 25 years since the broadcast.


How should we express this work, which is a world -class monument in Japan, as a ukiyo -e, a proud traditional crafts, as a proud traditional crafts. We have repeatedly held a production meeting and provided it to everyone this time as a gem work that took a long time from planning to production.



■ In producing Ukiyo -e trees

Ukiyo -e, a traditional craft representing Japan. However, the entire industry is now in danger, and the number of craftsmen inheriting this traditional technology that has been in the Edo period has shrunk to dozens of people in Japan.

While we are focusing on the development of young people, it is true that production, including raw materials, is reduced and the number is decreasing.


Along with active craftsmen (painters, sculptors, slurpers) who are now conveying the woodcuts of Ukiyo -e, the world's good use of Ukiyo -e is used from a new angle by interacting with traditional techniques and "Cowboy Bopp". To know the people inside. And we will contribute to part of the development of Japan without interrupting this world -class culture.


I want to deliver it to you. The essence of traditional Japanese crafts.



■ Points of this work

・ Ukiyo -e painting is the most representative visual


In order to leave "Cowboy Bopp" as a Ukiyo -e tree print, this key visual is a wonderful design packed with the world view of "Cowboy Bop", so we have created this time as a challenging initiative.
Please enjoy the key visuals that will be restored by the fusion of traditional technologies since the Edo period.
・ Focus on the mat part surrounding the visuals
The mat part of the work was featured in each TV series subtitle. Because it is a "cowboy bebop", the point of "cool, cool, fashionable" cannot be removed. The subtitle contains music elements, etc., and it is a very effective expression that matches the concept of space jazz, which is not a space opera, and is one of the major elements that color the work.
