The Consulate-General of Japan at Houston doesn't quite have it right when they describe Cowboy Bebop as "one of the first anime series to become popular in the U.S."—Astro Boy has it beat by over thirty years—but they're pretty much on the money that Bebop director Shinichiro Watanabe (also the director of Samurai Champloo, two shorts in The Animatrix, and Macross Plus, all fps faves) is a Big Deal. And of course it's a Big Deal that he'll be appearing at the IMAX theater in the Houston Museum of Natural Science on February 11. Hmm, maybe it's time for a return trip to Texas.
