What was the consensus on last night's episode?
>not spess landy
You had one job.
I'm liking the lack of any kind of angst whatsoever, I hope it stays that way.
better than the last two
My favorite single episode this season so far.
Not even my profund experience with Corruption of Champions could prepare me for a giant tittiemonster fighting an aloha mech. Also RIP in peace Meow.
Uncensored nipples surprised me.
Best part were the speaking aliens warning him.
Really good episode.
best episode so far
Next week's episode has zombies so it might become my favorite because I'm a sucker for zombie episodes
oh god, what happened to meow? Will he be fine?
I was going to drop Space Dandy until episode 3. Fucking great.
I wish they would stop killing people and then returning them to life off screen between episodes though. That's distracting.
It's the future, if you die they just reload you from your last saved backup.
I'm betting it has something to do with that warp drive creating splits in the timeline everytime they use it, would explain why the Gogol empire wants to get their hands on him so bad. But this episode is to be continued so meow's most likely not dead yet.
I keep thinking that's going to be part of the plot. Dandy is some kind of time space anomaly or some kind of special alien himself that effects causality or something. Or, I dunno, something.
Hawaiian Yankee got me hyped.
Do you even multiverse? Fuck, just listen to the ED.
I think it was the best episode out of the first three, and I'm glad it started to get a bit more entertaining.
This would be neat.
I thought the episode was great. Saw the twist coming, but it was still fun to watch. Also HAWAII YANKEE
>hot girl is actually a trap
>Meow gets vore'd to death
>cue awesome mecha fight scene
>Dandy actually catches an alien
>episode ends just as soon as he realizes Meow is kill
At this point I'm wondering why this series has such a passionate hatebase and why the Nips won't buy it.
>why this series has such a passionate hatebase
You mean here? It attracts /v/ermin.
>why the Nips won't buy it.
I thought it was doing fairly okish.
That your thread title is funnier than anything this show has done.
Nips won't buy it because only 3 episodes have aired. I'm sure sales will only be average at best though, what with it not being part of their kawaii uguu culture and all.
The DVD of volume 1 is ranked the lowest on amazon out of every winter show. Ranked nearly at 50000.
The BD is ranked 1000.
>Ranked nearly at 50000
>The Gogol Empire bails
>The Rageians bail
>Dandy and QT beat the alien that scared everyone else off
That mech transformation was amazing.
>mfw Dandy says we have to use THAT
I like that it's a retro rubber wire hose mech but it still tried to do the badass hand clench with its goofy claws.
I love how Dandy is the lovable asshole
>Dandy: There's nothing we can do about Meow, let's just leave.
>QT: Where's your points card? Wasn't it with Meow last?
>Dandy: DANDY NEVER LEAVES A FRIEND BEHIND, LET'S GO SAVE HIM
Still waiting on gifs of Honey dancing and being lewd on that point card.
Meow a shit in every episode.
A great episode overall but the part where tittymonster ate meow coupled with the music was kind of depressing.
At least they always come back to life in the next episode.
2 > 3 > 1
I like how it plays with your emotions, that chase scene when Meow gets eaten was spooky. Also the ramen alien's story last episode. I thought it was going to be 100% comedy but I guess not.
I burst out laughing during the titty transformation, holy shit that was great, also the nigga alien, proof right there that watching the dub was the right choice.
this was a pretty great episode
You can find them on tumblr.
I am really considering dropping this series. It just so, boring. I don't know how and I can't put my finger on why but its boring, a show about a alien hunter in space is boring. The only thing that saves it for me is the OP and the waitress at boobies. Is it just me?
This ep was decent and the boob monster was a surprise.
Something about this show reminds me of those saturday morning animes on fox 10 years ago, except more lewd and satirical. Must be the narrator.
Same here, I think it's because it's really lacking any sort of direction whatever but I guess that's standard Wantanabe. I'm thinking I'll like it more if I just wait it out then marathon it in a few months.
>also the nigga alien, proof right there that watching the dub was the right choice.
I did not expect this at all.
I thought it was a pretty nice touch.
>What was the consensus on last night's episode?
we all agreed that the OP is boss as fuck
Fuck, I searched google images for "space dandy boob monster" and limited it to the past 24 hours and found a bunch of pictures of dudes jacking off and having gay sex and stuff. There's not even boobs in that what the fuck?
What's the matter, faggot?
Too Dandy for you?
>a show about a alien hunter in space is boring.
Christ, really? What's your idea of fun and excitement then?
It's a boobie monster, run!
been watching it on tv
is the sub better?
Would you fuck a deathnarian /a/?
DxD dub does something like that, making the MC's Bald Friend from the Hood.
The Boobs are Uncensored.
>What was the consensus on last night's episode?
QT best robowaifu/10.
Speaking of which, did they use Viva Namida for when Hawaii Yankee was unleashed in the JP version, or did they use the same music that the American version did?
Do not weep for Meow. He got be inside of a woman before, during, and probably after his demise.
An alien hunter in space is just about the most bland sci-fi setting you can possibly create, and it has over 100 years of modern sci-fi settings to compete with.
I can't believe the guy that made something as good as Cowboy Bebop is making this trash.
Shouldn't you hear more before downloading something?
>as good as Cowboy Bebop
hold on buddy, bounty hunting wasn't exactly fresh and original when bebop came out either
they're also uncensored in the dub anywhere but tv...
> Does anyone else find Meow not as cute as Dandy?
Me me me. Tumblr has terrible taste in guys; I don't see how you can not love him at least a bit. He has that Lancer personality type going on where he's like 40% asshat but 60% decent dude.
Boxershorts episode when
>Tumblr has terrible taste in guys
They probably see him as a revolting, cishet womanizer who objectifies women.
First off, fuck that chase scene music. That shit was loud as fuck and didn't fit the mood at all.
Secondly, best episode so far because it used all its time to tell a contained story. There is nothing wrong with episodic anime, but when one half of the episode feels unimportant or disconnected from the other half (ep1), or nothing is concluded (ep2), it's not going to be engaging.
They made this whole episode coherent by introducing items early that became relevant to the mission later, like the expired food and the boobies card. And in the end, there was a payoff, not some random happening.
They are also peppering the episodes with hints at a bigger story: the aliens chasing Dandy, the run-in with the alien appraiser chick, reference what was supposedly said in previous episodes, and the warp drive shenanigans. Hopefully there is a payoff to all this as well.
In some scenes I can't tell if Dandy is trying to woo the ladies, or the camera.
All I need is boobies, nothing more!
i cant think of a scifi show or movie specifically about hunting aliens and space exploration shows/movies are pretty rare these days,also you guys need to remember the 5 ep rule.
I can't believe that such a worn out premise is producing something so fresh.
The show went from a 7/10 to a 10/10.
One thing doesn't make sense though.
If Space Dandy is capturing aliens that haven't been documented yet, then how the shit did that one manage to get accepted at the end of the episode?
It's probably an exceptionally rare capture. I imagine they accept species that are uncommon as well.
It was known of but never caught and examined in depth
They only have to be rare aliens, not necessarily undiscovered (though those would probably be worth the most).
It makes sense that a deathgarian would be worth a lot of money since there probably haven't been many hunters with the skill/luck/DANDINESS to bring back a living sample.
She might be a mystery creature, like Ness Monster.
You mean a cryptid? But for her to be a crypted people can't know that she actually exists for sure and they do.
Maybe they knew she existed but they were very rare/hard to catch
That's what I think.
How did they know it existed if everybody who could have told of its existence would have been, you know, eaten?
probably some alien species thats like an armadillo or an isotop
just curled up until he came out the other end.
It was alright.
I'm waiting for the gogal empire to do something.
It could also be rare. hard to catch and not extensively studied.
No one's ever caught it before because she's eats them before they get the chance.
RIP in piece stupid sexy space cat.
So do I. The whole show is just plain fun.
It also does an amazing job of bordering on tribute and parody of anime as a whole, which is also fantastic.
Also titty monsters.
>I wish they would stop killing people and then returning them to life off screen between episodes though. That's distracting.
Hey PhD, I know these alternate worlds will always be parallel.
I want Meow's hat
>episode about hitting up a space diner instead of working
>episode about getting space ramen
>episode about trying to use a points card before it expires (at least initially)
>marketed towards the western market
I know japan isn't big on this, but how HIGH does bones have to be?
This is totally a show for the stoner demographic
why is there no gif of Honey and Blue Haired Babe oppai touching?
ichi jigen ni jigen san jigen
Bebop did this and it failed with the japanese market,now its critically acclaimed and is one of the most popular animes.
A lot of stoners i've known like anime... makes sense.
Desperate enough to mention the Detroit news.
Maybe mushroom samba?
I'm saying bebop attempted to appeal to a western audience and this show is three episodes in,it will probably get more serious.
champloo had a dedicated stoner episode.
it doesn't make it a bad show either.
I only watched the first episode and found it annoying.
I preferred champloo to bebop.
I've never done any drugs and that was still one of the funniest moments in the whole series.
I like bebop a bit more but i wish champloo got a second season or a movie.
Or maybe Scarlet gave him a free pass
Bepop for me any episode where Ein had a part in is insta-great
all the characters in bebop were great,except maybe julia.
Yeah but Ein is best dog, best character, saddest departure of character
i won't lie,i'm getting a corgi because of him,i probably won't name it ein though.
>First episode of Bebop
This is kind of fucked up. I'm not sure I can like a character who acts like this.
>Second episode of Bebop
There's a corgi in space all is forgiven. Ein is still my favorite anime animal. I like him more than Totoro.
I'm trying to think if there's a better two part episode than "Jupiter Jazz" in all of anime. The first part of the (obvious homage to Zatoichi) blind assassin episodes of Champloo comes close.
I have one but he has cancer and probably won't last long, he's blind and deaf now so it's for the best but I'll get another in a few years but won't name him Ein because I've never enjoyed obvious references
I must admit I have never watched heavy metal women (ep 7) but Jupiter Jazz was easily some of the best overall, I liked the first viscous ep just because of the music at the end. I'd say the greatness of the show wasn't that it had a lot of good great episodes but overall good episodes with amazing parts
that sucks bro,i hope hes not in a lot of pain.
So.. this was a little graphic, right? What did they show on Adult Swim?
No he coughs every once in a while but other than that he's fine just sleeps a low because he's an old dog 14 and almost a half.
They just censored the nipples
so much blur
Nipless the larger monster just had skin colored nipples
I can agree to this. They treated every episode differently and tried to play to the strengths of each episode, rather than the whole of the series. It actually made the whole series stronger.
Anything we can do for your Space Corgi?
They didn't cut any of it, but it was obscurred/blurred because Adult Swim literally lives and dies on its Ad revenue. (It ain't FX where that shit don't matter, or HBO which has subscriber money). Also, I'm not one for dubs over subs (after all, subs are closer to the director's vision) but the QT voice is so flat in the sub is embarassing how much the dub's auto-tuned QT is better.
I've only seen one ep dubbed, and even without the autotune, english QT sounds a little more lively. Both are cute, though.
This anon is on to something.
Maybe Scarlet saw he lost his friend, and felt sorry for him. She did have a delayed reaction.
Meow's dub is great too. The way he said "cool." made me laugh out loud when Mamitas said she had never eaten cat.
But the machine scanned the alien and approved it. I'm guessing the organization dandy works for simply doesn't share notes with inferno coppu's mooks.
No it's about his time and he's already about as old as corgis get so ultimately it might not be cancer that takes him and just his age.
This too. Some of the lines are more...goofy in english? But to the series benefit.
Like the jealous/incredulous "Are you petting yourselves?!" actually got a laugh out of me. Makes me wonder if QT will get a QT centric episode down the line doing specifically robot things.
A literal titty monster. I enjoyed it.
is he as awesome as ein?
You guys are overthinking it. Quit trying to find a plothole when it doesn't fucking matter. Maybe they take multiple scans of rare species to better catalogue the multitude of varying information that can come from them. If you scanned just one human would you be done forever? There's so many different types of us.
Imagine if they quit after they scanned some nigger.
Inferno Cop Crossover episode when?
Doesn't have the hacker abilities but he'll chase the shit out of squirrels, steal my cats food and once tricked me out of fries I just bought because he tricked me to think there was someone at the door then ran and at them and knocked over the soda.
daww,you better let him have all the fries he wants.
>everyone shut the fuck up and stop speculating so much
>proceeds to throw in personal speculation
He gets a fair bit of human food, chubby little guy but hard to say no, wonder if they'll be a space dog race in space dandy?
Does anyone find the English dub more appealing than the Japanese dub? I feel that the jokes are better done in the dub, and Dandy's voice fits him better.
No, that's not what I'm doing at all. It's not speculation if I'm the only one who is right. You're wrong you dumb nignog.
So space dandy is a slaver right?
no one actually cares that much, calm your ass
Wonder how they'll address sentients being catalogued and hunted
i hope so,it would be neat if they had a corgi in an ep.
>failed with the japanese market
Bebop sold 10k per volume
they don't say they're mistreated,but i guess getting kidnapped and assumingly experimented on isn't fun.
Kind of, yes. Some of the clients of the Alien Registration Center are proprietors of private and public zoos. And considering the fact that sentience is an acceptable quality in acquisitions, then I suppose you could say that.
the show was aired really late in japan iirc and it wasn't hugely popular in its original run in japan.
You're right, it sold great. Here's why.
The struggle Bebop had was with the censors back in '99. Most of the episodes were, get this, "too violent to be aired and were stricken entirely, including part of the finale" during the series original run. The DVD sales were strong because people wanted to see the ending.
>Does anyone find the English dub more appealing than the Japanese dub? I feel that the jokes are better done in the dub, and Dandy's voice fits him better.
No. It's actually the opposite for me. The dub loses a lot of the subtlety with its dialogue. I'm still watching both, though I've switched from watching it dubbed first the watching the subbed version later, to the sub, then dub.
I almost always stick to the sub>dub rule but for this show I've heard both. I have to admit that the english dub seems more energetic/goofy in the good way, and the humor even seems a little better because of that. Despite the issue about Honey in the first episode.
I don't mind it so much (yet), the first time I was all worried about how they would deal with that but I laughed so hard when I realized they would just totally disregard it next ep.
Each episode features a different Dandy & crew from the infinite number of parallel universes, which is why the crew can die in one episode but seem fine in the next. Like this guy said >>100563076
>the show aired really late
nigger what medium do you think this is
Now that's interesting...and Keiko Nobumoto would be able to do it. She knows how to write, I mean she even wrote Tokyo Godfathers with Kon. I have a feeling she could pull a story like that off.
New Space Dandy trailer is up.
I'm really digging Toonami trailers for this show.
Aww geez I hope the Zombie episode can outdo Panty & Stocking's Zombie episode.
The bar is pretty high with "Of The Dead"
>You're a friggen robot you can't catch zombie.
it was actually put in hiatus a couple times like this guy said >>100580125 but my original argument was that it was a failure because it appealed to western audience,i'am wrong about it failing,so who knows why japan isn't interested in space dandy,maybe its because its three episodes in?perhaps its because its a comedy?i don't really care as long as it has its full run and a good ending.
Damnit, QT, it's not groping, just platonic bludgeoning.
Drop Dead, Rise Up, Get Dandy!
Dandy of the Dead
Wait, I think I misunderstood you.
Since Dr. Geru is an ape I thought about and Sci-fi and the first thing that came to mind was Planet of the Apes. A major part of the movie is the ending where you see the ruins of The Statue of Liberty. That scene left a huge impression on me so I got very excited thinking about the possibilities.
Can YOUR waifu do that, haters of /a/? Didn't think so.
> NO MEOW
I'm really scared now. What if his death is permanent? He was singlehandedly carrying the show.
No Meow, no show. Dropping this shit if he's no longer around.
I seriously feel like crying. How could they kill off such a fucking great character so early? I want to die. I hope I don't wake up tomorrow.
The Evil Dandy
> Drop Dead, Rise Up, Get Dandy!
Wait, nevermind, nothing beats this. Add "Baby" to the end and it could be an actual episode title.
Yeah, I figured that was a joke they would play, but it doesn't seem like anyone in any of the series' known universes has called attention to the Planet of the Apes references yet.
"The warp drive is broken" guys. It's always been broken. It's the universe that is shifting and changing.
>QT: What're you doing?!
>Dandy: You're a freakin' robot, you can't catch zombie!
>QT: You're so mean!
That's just moe.
Now you've gotten my hopes up for an Army of Darkness style Dandy with a chainsaw for an arm.
>After being bitten by an alien, Meow becomes a mind-munching zombie, eventually going after the rest of the members aboard the Aloha Oe.
And they better not ever kill of or leave him absent in any episode
So far, in every episode where they use the warp drive, someone's died by the end. I think we should start keeping track of this in future episodes.
Well the trailers and previews showed that Dandy gets turned into a zombie at one point. Maybe QT can go into permanent Power Save mode and they can be shambling space abominations as a team!
Stop catering to my fetishes Space Dandy!
>Meow makes no appearance
b-but he's been in every trailer up to this point! I'm scared guys.
All of my want.
I've never been in love with an anime character more than him.
And now he's gone. All he got was three episodes.
This feeling I'm feeling right now is so new to me.
I'll have to visit a therapist and learn to cope with loss better.
He's not dead...well he's dead in that universe but not the next episode's.
Who else thinks the writers are lulling the audience into a false sense of security with character deaths, only to drop a bombshell permadeath (like Scarlet's, or another characters) later?
>End of the episode teases zombies
>Shows Zombie Dandy
Why would they spoiler the ending of an unaired episode like that? Dandy dies, and we already know it now.
>next episode's trailer released
>first trailer to ever not show Meow
>First episode abuses him, kidnaps him, and drags him to some uncharted planet only to be present during an Exterminatus
>Second episode scars him emotionally, throws him into space twice, and just outright bullies the poor guy
>Third episode has him seemingly win the girl, only to get eaten and forgotten. What were we missing, again?
>Fourth episode shows him to be a zombie, aka already dead from the get-go.
Being Meow is suffering.
Read....this is the synopsis of the next episode directly from the studio.
You forgot the fact that he has tried to sell him to science where he would inevitably be dissected. Three times.
From Dusk 'Til Dandy.
>directly from the studio
well why didn't you say so?!
I assumed it was just some anon talking out of his ass again.
Thanks, now the thoughts of suicide have left my mind for now.
QTs response to this was hilarious,
"how did have no idea we could do this?!"
The dub is really good even though it fell a little flat early on due to some stiff translation (which'll probably get better as time goes on).
It reminds me a lot of Cromartie's dub in a good way.
yeah I feel dumb as fuck now. I didn't watch the preview for the next episode.
I'll shut up now.
I don't know about you, but I'd find it hilarious if every now and then when a character died it took an episode or two for them to catch back up with no explanation at all.
Best ed of the season. Too bad US doesn't get it.
I'd find it hilarious if it was anyone but Meow.
Could you tame the titmonster?
Would you lead her to food?
I'd strangle her to death for hurting my husbando.
All explained in the ED.
>Going is fine, but what about coming home?
It went so far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like
I probably would,she killed the furfags pet toy
Kudos to her!
Isn't QT auto-tuned in the Japanese PVs? What's up with that? I can't have been the first person to notice it.
QT's voice has a small hint of autotune in the show, tho
It isn't? So I'm just crazy?
I've only noticed it in the PVs.
All I want to know is how did meow survive the digestion?
And remember, they're doing a simulcast dub, which is even harder to produce than normal dubs because they're working on a really really tight schedule. They get the Japanese episode a few days before it's set to air (and that's if they're lucky) and they have to write the English script, record the dub, and ready it for airing in that time. With all that considered, you've got to hand it to them - the dub is really good even by normal standards and they're making it under a severe time crunch every week.
Timespace warp nigga
hnnnngggg my ovaries
> In some scenes I can't tell if Dandy is trying to woo the ladies, or the camera.
Either way, it's working.
> spess dandy
> is a a dandy in space
This line somehow always gets me.
I wish the whole series was narrated, it's fantastic
that chase scene music reminds me of the technique they use in war movies when shit hits the fan and soldiers are massacring civilians and burning churches. Totally threw me off - wasn't even sure if it was a comedic or serious segment.
> They get the Japanese episode a few days before it's set to air (and that's if they're lucky) and they have to write the English script, record the dub, and ready it for airing in that time.
There's no way that's true.
It's not. The schedule is tight, but not that tight. I believe it's more a matter of weeks than days. Someone involved with the dub posted about it on twitter.
At least 7 episodes where done before hand, Thats why some of the animators where saying what episodes they like best already
While these 7 seven are out they are working on the next 7. Its a matter of weeks not days
Dr. Gel and the ballgagged Liberty ship are the Planet of the Apes reference.
Does Scarlet ever become the Faye of Space Dandy?
pls say yes
Well she's in control of the money, so I guess she can't.
I Hope that next time Toonami replaces all the commercials with music videos,Vida namida will be one of them
best ed for a while imho
There's a reason they only showed the girl form. Nobody who saw it transformed lived to tell the tale, yet alone capture it.
Is the dub ever gonna have the actual OP and ED? I been hearing it will, but It's been 3 episodes so far. I just want to want it live for fucks sake.
Its gonna happen. Getting the rights to air it over the air live are a bitch.
Demarco ( guy who runs toonami ) Has said they will Run its full OP and ED when they get them,They're trying hard as it is right now
not enough Meow in the past couple of threads.
I thought there'd be another surge in popularity over him after the new episode aired.
I feel like I'm the only one who still loves him now.
The tumblr land whales making a huge deal of the womanizer dandy is pretty hilarious. Toonami is filled with little babies.
I love em too but I'm hoping for a bead filed meow plushie.
any screenshots? I ould use some laughter
In Portuguese (I don't know about Spanish, but it's probably the same) "Mamitas" means "Boobies".
Now you know.
>What if his death is permanent?
Didn't Dandy die in the first episode?
I'm a subs guy, what have you guys been getting in the meantime?
The OP and ED are seriously too good not to have
captcha: student PwnJap
It's like the concept sounds fun but the execution is terrible. It really seems written by a 12 year old.
Stop lying. Dubfags are the worst. I wish they would stick to leddit,mal or wherever they come from.
>It really seems written by a 12 year old.
So...you have alot of experience reading the writings of 12 year olds?
The plot is always as cheap as it gets.
Well, it has 1 or 2 jokes which arent too bad.
Also, english qt sounds like shit.
please don't tell me they had Vic dub dandy or meow.
Sub fags are much worse because they have to bitch about every goddamn thing and are usually the same retards that sperg out everytime someone calls anime "cartoons".
Damn, those guys think of everything.
Thanks, that was educational. I knew I'd heard it before (and not just as Shoko Nakagawa's cat's name) and was wondering if it was a real word.
>[Commie] Space Dandy - 03 [C54C578C].mkv
That's real fucking dandy.
Keep crying. Meow's cool, but I'm beginning to like Meowfag tears more.
Actually, this must be spanish. In portuguese, it would be "tetinhas" or "peitinhos". Something like that.
Funniest thing about Space Dandy is Futaba adding じゃんよ(janyo) to every sentence in their Dandy threads.
