BIG MAN TYRONE DID IT HOLY FUCK
We are thrilled to see the incredible response from fans for the Amazon Exclusive Edition of Cowboy Bebop! But, we know that a few of you are waiting to see what our FUNimation Exclusive Edition contains before making a decision, so without further ado:
- Release date: 12/16/14
- Complete TV series on Blu-ray and DVD (combo pack)
- Exclusive Limited Edition tri-fold packaging in the style of a vintage record cover
- Display easel for packaging
- Four exclusive art cards
- One additional exclusive art card with foil-stamp autograph from series director Shinichiro Watanabe
We know some Premium Edition buyers primarily want pack-in content and items, and some prioritize having a display piece for their shelves. While both of our Cowboy Bebop Premium Editions feature display-worthy packaging and bonus items, their differences are intended to reflect these different priorities. We’re looking forward to revealing the designs soon!
We hope that with the Blu-ray and DVD Standard Editions (details coming soon) and the two Premium Editions, every fan is able to have a Cowboy Bebop experience that they love! Click here to order the FUNimation Exclusive Edition now.
Why is it that people are willing to spend $20 on a bowl of pasta with sauce that they might actually be able to replicate pretty faithfully at home, yet they balk at the notion of a white-table cloth Thai restaurant, or a tacos that cost more than $3 each? Even in a city as “cosmopolitan” as New York, restaurant openings like Tamarind Tribeca (Indian) and Lotus of Siam (Thai) always seem to elicit this knee-jerk reaction from some diners who have decided that certain countries produce food that belongs in the “cheap eats” category—and it’s not allowed out. (Side note: How often do magazine lists of “cheap eats” double as rundowns of outer-borough ethnic foods?)
Yelp, Chowhound, and other restaurant sites are littered with comments like, “$5 for dumplings?? I’ll go to Flushing, thanks!” or “When I was backpacking in India this dish cost like five cents, only an idiot would pay that much!” Yet you never see complaints about the prices at Western restaurants framed in these terms, because it’s ingrained in people’s heads that these foods are somehow “worth” more. If we’re talking foie gras or chateaubriand, fair enough. But be real: You know damn well that rigatoni sorrentino is no more expensive to produce than a plate of duck laab, so to decry a pricey version as a ripoff is disingenuous. This question of perceived value is becoming increasingly troublesome as more non-native (read: white) chefs take on “ethnic” cuisines, and suddenly it’s okay to charge $14 for shu mai because hey, the chef is ELEVATING the cuisine.”

Someone with an IP address sourcing to the House of Representatives just edited the Orange Is the New Black Wikipedia page with the telling summary of “not a woman.”
That’s right, this Congressman edited out a sentence hailing the show for including “the first ever women-in-prison narrative to be played by a real transgender woman.” What did he replace it with? Hate speech.
The Congressman called Cox a “man pretending to be a woman,” and linked to an offensive article by National Review Online aptly titled “Laverne Cox Is Not a Woman.”
The change has since been reversed and the IP address has been banned from editing Wikipedia for a month, but you can see the original edit he made in the link above.
The change was spotted by a Twitter bot which tweets out links any time a Congressional IP address edits Wikipedia.
Spread this like wildfire.
oh hell fucking no.
