Fuck no, 'straight men' add pretty much nothing to outlandish comedies like this, Kyon is a good character because Haruhi is more drama than comedy, and he actually has a personality of his own. Shinpachi is a whining pair of glasses that gets in the way.

I agree that it's disappointing so far but I'm still willing to give it at least a few more episodes to get going. So far I'm happy just enjoying it for the super-slick animation even if the writing is regrettably underwhelming.
>>
>>100590018
You didn't know about Hooters?
>>
>>100590099
Haven't seen ep3 yet. Did they explain how they survived ep1? Or is it really that the entire anime after ep1 is just Dandy's brain asphyxiating in the void of space and hallucinating?
>>
Think there's going to be any easter eggs or obvious references to Bebop? Only thing I noticed so far is that the two both use Woolong.

Speaking of Space Dandy
What video does the Commie dual audio use? The nip one or the localized one?

>>100590420
I didn't know the term "breastaurant" was a thing. Let alone enough of a thing to have its own Wikipedia page.

>>100590469

Because you're expecting something other than what it is. What you're doing is going and watching lain and expecting aerial dogfights and getting upset when you get drama and mindfuck.
>>
>>100590431
We don't know. Some people have speculated that every episode is happening in its own alternate universe.

Also, the cat dude dies, and no one in the show really cares so if he comes back next week, we can confirm that speculation.

I'm pretty sure I saw him again in the preview.

tbh i think space dandy does nothing wrong...

-has a fitting and dedicated op and ed (unlike 99% of all the other anime where op/ed are expendable and you wouldn't even notice because they all sound the same...imo)
-great animation (apart from the stills in the intro)
-i get the feeling that this show knows its genre and it doesn't take itself too seriously (its title is "space dandy" goddammit!)
-meow prolly died last episode but comes back in the next, which could mean wibbly wobbly timey wimey plottwists or...lazy writing (which, i have to admit, would suck)
-no false "japanized" depiction of other cultures (might be just me, but i hate their shallowness regarding this topic i.e. those marines in nobunagun last ep.)

to you guys complaining about everyone dying at the end of episode 1, you remember the Bebop crew dying in "Toys in the Attic", right? Or the Samurai Champloo gang getting killed by a comet obliterating them in the zombie wasabi episode? this is the same lack of continuity.

the fact that other events in the first episode seem to have still happened does sort of stand out, though.
>>
>>100590431

Next episode is zombies.

Also, Meow dies.
>>
>>100591890
I see.
So it's a lolrandum anime pandering to /v/.
Well, I guess they need the money and that's an untapped niche. Honestly, it feels a bit weird, but not more weird than fujoshi manga and anime. Seeing an anime that panders to a different kind of otaku, I mean. I was getting used to the unending cute-girls-doing-cute-things series, but it seems that well is running dry.

Detroit Metal City

School Rumble

It's true though that anime can't get into comedy.
>>
>>100590099
Because it is WAY too meta. Also, the first episode's bullshit unfunny ending killed any possible tension that we could have gotten later on, because you know whatever it happens they can always brush it off as a joke. So the jokes are not funny, the action is irrelevant, and Dandy's job is bullshit, so the whole thing is just boring as hell.

>Why is there so much wasted potential?
Disappointment of the year, undoubtedly.
>>
>>100595362
Excel Saga had much better jokes, in my opinion. Also, better characters and a greater variety of scenarios.
Space Dandy gives me the impression of something which tries too hard to be funny, but it actually isn't. I watched all three episodes and all I got was a couple of chuckles, and this is bad, since this looks like the kind of anime which should be watched almost exclusively for the comedy.
>>
>>100595839
It seems like most anime this days try way too hard.
>>
>>100595875
Sometimes you need to try hard to distinguish yourself. But this anime with this unique and vivid graphic style didn't need to try this hard.

What are you talking about? I don't watch that.
In most movies you assume the good guy will triumph at the end, but even then, they don't need to get a flawless victory. They can get harm, their friends or family may be at risk or they can even die themselves. In Space Dandy you see them getting vaporized and it's treated as a joke and never mentioned. Even Wile E. Coyote got visibly hurt... So with such an extreme cartoony setting there's nothing at risk, and the action becomes completely pointless.

Why is not having continuity or an overarching plot such a big deal? And it clearly has, it'll probably be a lot like Bebop in that regard at least, where bits and pieces of the story are suggested here and there, and then you have a small arc to advance it.

It's worth watching for the animation alone, but it's certainly squandering a lot of its episodic potential.

The noodle guy story in episode 2 felt like something that could have touched home if it had more screen time. But they keep giving that time over to repeat gags. Why have that evil guy show up every episode if he's just going to scatter off without actually doing anything?
>>
>>100597256
Ramen (ラーメン rāmen?, IPA: [ɽäꜜmeɴ]) is a Japanese noodle soup dish. It consists of Chinese-style wheat noodles served in a meat- or (occasionally) fish-based broth, often flavored with soy sauce or miso, and uses toppings such as sliced pork (チャーシュー chāshū?), dried seaweed (海苔 nori?), kamaboko, green onions. Nearly every region in Japan has its own variation of ramen, from the tonkotsu (pork bone broth) ramen of Kyushu to the miso ramen of Hokkaido.

Not really. From the PVs, I expected more whacky adventures in space than anything. I agree a lot of the jokes fall flat, but it's still entertaining enough to watch.

>>100596387
Heh.

In your defense, I can see watching Space Dandy expecting it to be another Excel Saga and feeling let down. There's no chance that a team of comedic geniuses and mentally ill people the like of the people who made that will ever be assembled again.

People forget that, as good as it was, Cowboy Bebop was one hell of a pastiche. The great writing and loveable, memorable characters (and the music/high production values) were what elevated it to classic status; story-wise there weren't a whole lot of new ideas there. It was mostly just Watanabe and co. alternately paying homage to and poking fun at their favorite Western films. Sounds familiar, eh?

Irrelevant. It doesn't take a genius to realize why posting it is a bad idea in Space Dandy threads. This has nothing to do with who you are or which board do you hail from, but with what impression and consequences your post causes.

>>100598592
I haven't found it fun since the first few episodes. The characters are boring and static and just yell loud. The humor has literally not made me laugh once despite how hard it tries. The "Oh look how silly we are it's like a cartoon!" attitude means they can remove tension or any sense of risk from any scene at any given time. The plot literally went nowhere, and just when you think something happens, they show you 5 minutes later that Senketsu isn't really dead, and the next episode is just cuts of "Don't lose your way!" followed by Ryuuko one shotting everyone with a "Oh shit you're suddenly super strong!" explanation to move the plot along, instead of an actual journey arc where she grows as a person.

It's bad and it just hides behind the fact that "It's not meant to be taken seriously" too much. I don't care if it's a joke or a parody or an homage, it's boring and stupid.

>>100598607
I enjoy Space Dandy a bit. I like Bones and Watanabe. I like Triggers staff as long as Imaishi isn't directing, because I think he's a hack.

I'm not redirecting you because you're not shitposting like an idiot and I'm not shitposting either, I'm just expressing my opinion.

I really want to say "the last two episodes of Evangelion", but they don't work without the other 24, which really aren't anything like Twin Peaks.

I think I understand the problem. Dandy is set in an insane universe with an insane man, with only QT to act as a grounded person, but that's not enough.

Now Futurama had an insane universe, but Fry was more of a straight man in the beginning before the modern seasons; he was the link between the modern world and the crazy future, so I guess that's why the show clicked.
>>
>>100599714
It can be either/or, as well as the show itself making a commentary (whether the characters are aware of it or not). The "I'm so fucked up" scene in EVA was pure meta

It really wasn't though, it fit perfectly into Shinji's character arc and is mirrored with the final scene of the film. If you want a good example of meta in Eva, try the live-action sequence with footage of a theater full of fans or the bit with shots of emails sent to Anno.
