posted on by Jennifer Sherman
This year marks the 20th anniversary of Cowboy Bebop, so there's no better time to celebrate the bounty-hunter space-western action drama series. Now, fans have the opportunity to own a watch inspired by the anime's protagonist Spike Spiegel.
The face of the watch includes the text "I'm only watching a dream that I never a [sic] wakened from," which is one of Spike's famous quotes from the show. The open heart design exposes the watch's inner workings. Other details on the face include a silhouette of Spike's Swordfish II ship, a brown stone inspired by Spike, and a rosebud. The watch's navy-colored band is inspired by Spike's trademark outfit.
The watch costs 32,400 yen (about US$286) after tax. Retailers such as Animate, Animate Online Shop, and MOVIC are accepting orders until December 26, and the watch is slated to ship around May 30.
For fans who can't get enough Spike, First 4 Figures is also offering a high-end figure. Other anniversary celebrations for the anime include special screenings and a café. Netflix also recently confirmed that it is producing a 10-episode live-action series adaptation of the anime.
