This May Bandai Entertainment will publish a full color Cowboy Bebop Film Manga ($13.95) based on the anime TV series directed by Shinichiro Watanabe.  The Cowboy Bebop anime, which has sold over 1 million DVDs in the U.S. (see 'Cowboy Bebop -- Over 1 Million Units Sold'), remains the one of the most popular anime series of all time (especially here in the States) and is still shown frequently on the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim.  Tokyopop's black-and-white Cowboy Bebop manga, which was an adaptation of the anime series, was also a major hit.


The first volume in Bandai's Cowboy Bebop Film Manga,, which features full color art based on screen captures from the anime series, covers the first two episodes of the anime, and also includes exclusive bonus material not available anywhere else.
