You must be thinking, “Who’s that badass?”
That’s Keiko Nobumoto. She was the head of Series Composition for Cowboy Bebop, as well as the screenwriter for a third of the series, including the first episode, all the two-parters, and the Faye-focused episodes.
She’s also the creator of Wolf’s Rain, had another jam with Shinichiro Watanabe as the writer of Macross Plus, and wrote the Satoshi Kon-directed classic Tokyo Godfathers, which I hope is part of your holiday movie playlist.
This season you’ll find her on the writing staff of Watanabe’s new TV series Space Dandy.
So let’s raise a glass to a writer who’s had a hell of an influence on our generation of storytellers.
