DailyTexas: Have you received any negative feedback for Spike's death?
Watanabe: I've never officially said that he's died. At this point, I can tell you that I'm not sure if he's alive or dead.
I think probably rather than being yelled at for killing Spike, I think ... people are more upset that I might
make a continuation.
DT: I'm sure you've heard the next question a thousand times, and I apologize for asking again.
W: Then I pass. [Laughs]. I'm joking.
DT: When are we going to get to see more "Bebop"?
W: Someday ... maybe, someday.
He's still alive.
