Check Out This Kickass Version Of Cowboy Bebop’s Epic ED Theme

Anime can give back to the community.

Funimation recently shared this star-studded arrangement of the gorgeous Cowboy Bebop ED theme “The Real Folk Blues” featuring Yoko Kanno and The Seatbelts. Guest artists include:

  • Shihori (J-pop singer)
  • Uyanga Bold
  • Raj Ramayya
  • Robbie Benson from Super Soul Bros.
  • Masahiro Aoki (Capcom composer who did music for Mega Man, SFV, Astral Chain, and more)
  • Ed Goldfarb (composer for Pokémon: The Animated Series)
  • Zac Zinger (Composer and woodwind player for Street Fighter V, Jump Force, Mobile Suit Gundam: Side stories, and more)

And a whole ton more. See if you can recognize the musicians. Yes, Steve Blum who voiced the English VO for Spike Spiegel also chimes in.

All I can say is that you can make magic during the COVID-19 pandemic if you put your mind to it, especially when you can get awesome rappers to do the last bits.

Oh, and you can buy the vinyl here; all proceeds will go to charities like the CDC Foundation and Doctors without Borders.
