Space Dandy is a dandy guy… in space.
That is literally their catchphrase.
Man, you can’t find a person less interested in this series prior to it’s first episode than me. I promise.
Shinichiro Watanabe? Hm, yeah, sure. Airing in good ol’ America before Japan? Oh, good to know.
It seemed like the production people were trying a little too hard. Which is never good, but did my prediction become reality?
Well, yeah. Corny narrator monologues, boobs, and humor I can only describe as western humor.
Is this really what Space Dandy is all about though?
Space Dandy is a guy in space who simuntaneously hunts aliens in exchange for money, together with his robot and cat partner. Thus the episodic misadventures of Space Dandy begins.
To be honest with’cha, I really, really, really like this show.
Surprised? Yeah, me too. When Space Dandy isn’t trying to hard to make me laugh (which sometimes works and sometimes doesn’t) it focuses more on the trippy action scenes, which looks God damn beautiful, I mean, bro, have you seen the animation of this thing? I’m certain I could buy Poland with it’s budget.
Furthermore, the dub sounds awesome, and all together, Space Dandy feels like an old-school after-school show with boobs and ass and ramen thrown in just because.
Regardless of that, I don’t think Space Dandy can keep a big enough audience entertained with it’s episodic nature, so I predict that, at some point, Space Dandy will do a 360 and drama and gasp, plot ensues. Or atleast a little bit.
All in all, I will keep watching Space Dandy, for it’s probably the, wait for it, dandiest anime of the season.
