Now 3 episodes in how does /a/ feel about Space Dandy?
I thought it was okay.
Best episode so far. Actually made me smirk a couple times. Not hilarious or anything but it was mildly amusing. Animation was good and music was solid at parts. Still has a long way to go till I would consider it legitimately good though.
I saw the english dub of ep 1 when it came out, thought it was boring as hell. Didnt bother with ep 2 last week. Downloaded sub version of 2 and 3 today, watched ep 2, still thought it was boring. is 3 better or should I just drop it.
I don't get why everyone is saying this is the best episode so far.
I don't think it was a bad episode overall, but wasn't it pretty much the same as the other 2?
I'll marathon it it's finished. Call me when the OST is out.
3 episode rule.
All I can say is that it's got a lot of boobies.
It's fun, baby
While I personally enjoyed all the episodes, the general consensus seems to be that EP 3 is the best so far and some that thought the other 2 were bad liked it.
So the chance is that you may like it, it's only 20 minutes anyway.
Well, I mean, some of the jokes were at least funnier this episode. The comedic timing is still off but I felt like it was a bit better than ep 1 or 2. In comparison ep 1 was boring as hell, as was ep 2 until it got to at the interdimensional ramen shop part at the end.
Don't listen to the "3 episode rule" people. The anime follows the same formula in every episode so far. If you didn't like 1 and 2, you won't like 3.
It's just not for you. It's not like this is a masterpiece or anything.
>If you didn't like 1 and 2, you won't like 3.
I did though.
Don't listen to when other people tell you you'll like something or not. Watch it yourself and find out.
I like it, and this character's a cutie.
Look forward to the new episodes
QT a pure maiden.
>If you didn't like 1 and 2, you won't like 3.
Except countless people have been saying the opposite in the threads, dipshit.
This anime should be a lot better than it is. The character design is fucking great, the animation is among the best of this and last season and it has an unbelievable pedigree behind it.
But the writing is just fucking bad. So far it's been nothing but disappointing. It has the potential to be so much more.
Severely disappointing, yet still the best anime in quite a while.
It got better with every episode
1 was boring for me overall
2 was ok, having moments that ranged from bad to good
3 was fun, but i still have some problems with it
Overall if they keep the quality from the 3rd episode it will an ok show, nothing spetacular but not a failure either.
It's okay, I expected more, though.
I mean, it's not bad, but it lacks focus and ambition.
>If you didn't like 1 and 2, you won't like 3.
>It's just not for you.
You should really speak only for yourself.
Great opening and ending. The anime itself could use some more creativity.
It's silly fun. And decent music.
I want to have sex with Space Dandy.
I like it a lot and think it's a very entertaining show.
I seem to be in the minority though.
Any screenshots for the 3rd episode on Toonami/Adult Swim/whatever it's airing on?
I want to see how they censored it.
This.The reason I was looking forward to the 3rd episode was to just hear the music again.
So how did they explain how Dandy and his crew escaped death at the end of EP1?
The same way they're going to explain how Meow is still alive after ep3.
i.e. they won't.
timey wimey ball of space strings.
The show alright hinted many times at parallel universes, possibly caused by their faulty warp drive.
The same way they'll explain how Meow will survive the bowels of the Deathwhatever alien.
The ED already explained it right after it happened.
I'm enjoying it a lot less than I thought I would, so I really hope it does get better.
The monkey general and bland "lol i like boobies" jokes are the only thing I have a problem with, Its just too juvenile at times.
Nipples were blurred out when she first transformed. Didn't notice anything else.
It's pretty good. The plot (if there is one) is really slow to emerge though, it's just episodic so far, but consistently entertaining at the very least.
I want a QT
Just buy a Harry Hoover and develop Schizophrenia.
meow is kill
It's Space Adventure Cobra meets Adventure Time.
It's pretty fun, top 5 of the season. I especially like the animation and music.
>It's pretty fun
>top 5 of the season
Woah, isn't that a bit too far? This is one of the best seasons in at least a year.
The seasons not that good. I'd rank it up with Sekai Seifuku, Noragami, Wizard Barristers, and Chuu3.
So was everyone else the first episode, show doesn't seem to care.
>but it lacks focus and ambition
That's how I feel about it.
It's a decent show, but it could have been a lot better if there was something that would make me look forward to next episode. So far, it's a mess for me and the only thing I'm really enjoying is the OP and ED.
I think it might also be the characters... they don't really have anything going for them. If this continues, I won't be able to take any important moments serious because of how goofy they are.
I'm probably going to drop it after this episode, though I won't decide until next week.
this season is truly the winter of discontent
I have them on my DVR and can't be bothered to watch them,
What do you mean not that good? You either haven't watched everything yet or you and I are most incompatible persons in this board.
That's the point of the show.
There is no plot. There will be no plot. Every episode is Mushroom Samba.
It's better than the average winter, but i've seen far better seasons.
What exactly is so good this season?
Everyone's losing their shit over Sekai Seifuku, it seems.
Then there's the IM@S killer.
Meow is just a cat.
>Everyone's losing their shit over Sekai Seifuku, it seems.
It's absurdly fun, if you haven't checked it out, get on it.
I wonder when Honey's going to be relevant. Wasn't one of the animators really playing her up a while ago?
To me it's the best season we've had since fall 2012.
Seriously, the only one that I actually didn't like was Nobunaga the Fool. Pretty much everything else is good.
I honestly thought she would join the crew and create maybe some more dynamic, but from how the show is going, I'm not expecting anything.
I caught the first episode and it seemed okay, though the put-upon protag was kind of lame; but It seems like there's hype for something I'm unaware of.
I'm curious as to why the "bad guys" are after Dandy in particular.
>Dandy can potentially travel through time
>could possibly have an episode with Mugen or Spike encountering Dandy
A man can dream.
If you feel like the show lacks in the comedy and/or characterisation, those are much less of an issue in the English dub. Really, don't expect magic wordplay to stay consistent with subtitles. Similarly, those aliens (I love the faked fake faked emphasis the narrator puts into that word) from ep3 came quite as a surprise when they talked.
Overall, I feel spaciously dandy. Free entertainment.
This. The show just seems more suited to English especially considering it's influenced by the West.
Key to the ultimate weapon.
High tier member of the Gogols, but he could give a fuck.
So will something happen any time soon?
I like it more than I should. It's been a long time since I've voted dub > sub as well too. Something about the show just feels right.
Every E-VA character except Dandy sucks though.
I think I've concatenated it down.
Wow, a cancerous namefag, go figure.
From the first episode on I had this feeling that Space Dandy was designed as a parody of contemporary anime, rather than a show that tries to be taken seriously. The comically sexualized consumerism of those food places and at the same time Dandy's outward denial of that factor, the complete disregard for physics or fictive coherence in favor of action, the incompetent bad guy and extremely obvious foreshadowing toward a tired trope (Dandy as The One or something); it all seems like a huge middle finger, as in "This is what Cowboy Bebop would be like if it had been produced today."
It's fun nonetheless, in my opinion. It tries to imagine what the evolution of anime has lined up. It's faster, stupider, and more nihilistic, putting it into that space where extremes and parodies of extremes are hard to separate.
I think you're reading too much into it, but you are right they are traits. If anything, I'd say those are unintentional rather than a parody.
It's really self-aware of the "sexualized consumerism" but everything else seems tacked-on and without much purpose.
Again, it's only been three episodes, so my opinion might change.
2 and 3 were such high quality that it's safe to assume at this point that any dissenting opinions are shitposting.
It has fantastic design work, some of the best animation in TV anime, a great soundtrack and is both legitimately funny while being able to evoke other emotions. Unquestionably one of the standout anime of the decade.
>legitimately funny while being able to evoke other emotions
I was legitimately worried for a bit when they were running from Mami. That soundtrack did wonders
He said that it is bad that the english dubs makes her sound dumb because that would make no sense later.
She will be relevant later.
It's super obvious that she's just playing up the bimbo act because she gets paid to
I like the ED a lot. Best one I've recently heard. Does any show this season have a better one?
Tonari no Seki-kun
It's stupid but fun and I like it.
I agree with >>100619177
Why does this arouse me.
I've been watching the raws and the assumed "humor" still falls flat on its face. The show is pretty much a comedy that's not funny with the production value pulling all the weight like several other shows this season.
That's a fetish you know
I like this too. Shame that it's pretty short.
Episode 3 is my favorite episode of the year, either that says something about my taste or that says something about current seasons of anime
I think that one is the second best.
The show is laugh-out-loud funny, and since I'm a professional comedian my opinion means more than yours so there's no reason to listen to you.
> I've been watching the raws and the assumed "humor" still falls flat on its face.
You should reread the post you're replying to.
Sorry Dane Cook, your opinion means shit.
first episode was best so far
>Supposed to be Dandy
>has tons of wrinkles and retarded hair
Is ramen gramps ded?
It's the best this this season but that's not saying a lot.
The first episode was pretty meh, but the second and third one have been pretty good.
Great fun so far.
I love it, baby.
QT is mai waifu.
It's not bad, but it's pretty uninpressive. Also, Dandy is basically Joseph Joestar.
So has anyone on the internet made a image caption yet of space dandy saying "Well that's just Dandy?" Seems like an obvious joke.
At the launch of this show I missed a shitstorm /a/ had with /co/ about it. What happened exactly if anything?
I don't get it.
Well, I have this.
So what OP and ED are dubfags saddled with? Same as us or something else?
That ED is really soothing, and I love the lyrics.
Some people got banned and now it's mostly ok.
Toonami trolls and the like. Best not to dwell on such idiocies.
I think the OP was shortened because US TV has more ads.
If it doesn't pick by the sixth episode I might drop it. I'm not really sure.
Someone have capped the mecha transformation sequence?
You can always drop it now and start watching it in a month of two if it's still popular.
It's already picked up. Get taste.
Well I can't fucking find it. But somewhere on my harddrive I have a reaction image of optimus prime saying "Well that's just...." Then he puts on sunglasses and says "Prime!"
You can also just watch an episode now and then.
I really like Space Dandy and it's perfect for a TV evening for me, but I can understand that some of our more hardcore residents want stuff that you can more "obsess" about, if that's making sense.
It's the closest we'll ever get to a Spaceman Spiff show.
In other words, I can't get enough.
This is you, but with anime. Unless you understand Japanese, then you have no right to talk about the humor. That being said, the dub is better. At least watch the sub before you dismiss it.
I like Space Dandy so far, but this is an offense to Bill Watterson.
>You're an asshole?
>Yeah I know of the phantom ramen
Something's up with that Honey. I want her to be a space pirate in hiding or something.
Best OP of the season.
Calvin and Hobbes thread?
Nothing is as bad as Clannad's starfish arch
Don't mention such horrors, dude.
You mean Zapp Brannigan right?
So nobody shit down my throat for this, but now that CBM dropped the dub, anyone have an alternative suggestion of someone who is recording it in reasonable quality? I don't have access to whatever station it is that airs it.
And while I entirely respect the opinions of many that would advise me to just watch the sub, I am enjoying watching this particular show dubbed, and would like to continue watching it that way.
>a mostly civil Space Dandy thread
Holy shit, IRC must be asleep
I don't know how to feel about the show, really. It has potential, the characters and music are nice, but it isn't doing anything. It gets the odd chuckle here and there, sometimes it feels like Futurama from the perspective of Zapp Branigann. I hear the directors tweeted that people should give it at least four episodes. A bad sign, but maybe the story will actually kick in then?
Commie release is dual audio
Turn off subs and switch to English audio track
Calvin and Hobbes teached me everything I needed to know.
I find their release does something to the OP, but after that its fine. The first ep worked, but after that the OP shits itself. Might just be my computer, though.
Next episode looks fun.
Considering how they're mostly ignoring past events as they move the their next shenanigans, I think the closest we'll have to a story in this show will be something similar to Panty and Stocking's last two episodes.
Not that it's a bad thing, just saiyan.
3cm short skirt that reveals underpantsu with hot pants below ass
Meow sounds the same.
And omg QT sounds so robotic because it's oh I dunno a fucking robot.
but it is a masterpiece, baby.
Oh man those shorts were too short to even be considered short shorts. They were almost pointless.
Oh, thank you
Yeah, that combination makes for very effective bait.
>Pixiv already has Dandy/QT shippers
This guy knows what's up.
Worst anime this season
After looking on my hard drive for an hour like the loser I am, I finally fucking found it. This thread looks like it is dead already but whatever.
I saved it anon
I don't remember the last time I saw something worth watching on tv but this show is definitely something I want to support, its impressive on a technical and a narrative level (with a few rough spots granted). Still, I feel like something big is waiting behind the curtain, I hope it doesn't end up being horrendously disappointing like the Thundercats reboot.
But I do understand Japanese. まぁ、いくらここで日本人だと主張しても意味がないのは承知の上だが。
Your efforts weren't in vain.
>Everyone's losing their shit over Sekai Seifuku, it seems.
Eh, it's not bad, but it's pretty okay.
Hopefully more will come around.
it's just waay too funny
Why was Scarlet wearing gloves in Episode 2? Who wears gloves while eating Ramen?
Who wears gloves at all is a better question. Unless it's ridiculously cold outside, you are playing a sport, or you drive a really nice car, there's no point.
That beam isn't centred with the eye and it's slightly irritating me
best anime this season
I think its dandy
Knew it, only reason /a/ likes it is because loli taking over the world
this boards tastes are so predictable
took less than a third of the first episode to reveal /a/'s forced obesseion with it
I can't help but prefer the sub, just for Meow. Dandy and QT are pretty much the same on either one.
I'm only interested in the Skeleton general bro.
I could care less about the loli honestly.
THERE'S A SNAKE IN MY BOOBS
who hype for zombie dandy?
The series got hated too much for a lot of petty and stupid reasons.
SOMEONE'S POISONED MY WATERIN' HOLE!
So far the only Dandy thing he has done is express fear over losing his hair.
He actually hunts and turns in an alien and gets big bucks
It's cathartic compared to ramen eating
What is this outfit. The shorts don't go high enough and the skirt doesn't go low enough.
I dropped it.
It's trying to be Earthworm Jim with fanservice, and it's failing.
I have never wanted so badly to like an anime before, but the writing is really letting it down at every turn.
What if the Beta invaded the Earth at first as a race of cute space alien girls that come in peace, but then once they settle in then they became ravenous betars that devour everything in their path
Rules #9 of Anime:
Any attempt at an Japanese-American production will BOMB MASSIVELY.
Seriously, there's been a perfect 30 year record of this...
They probably just take the shape of something thats universally attractive in that universe
It's still the letdown of the season. The task of saving anime once again falls to Kill La Kill
>It's still the letdown of the season.
I got what I wanted out of it. I never expected anything super amazing
I really disliked the first episode and thought they wouldn't be able to keep up the animation quality.
It's a pleasant surprise seeing something with gorgeous and creative designs also being animated consistently good. Plus I'm warming up to the show and its characters. It's okay, I guess.
Lexx > Tripping the Rift > Futurama > Hitchhikers Guide > Russian space cartoons > Cowboy Bebop > shit > smelly shit > Space Dandy
At least watch superior animation instead of wasting time on shit like SD
Those are some nice hotshot opinions you got there
>Tripping the Rift
Good points you raised. I`ll make sure to write an ellaborate reply answering all of them soon.
I bet even Japan could not make anime that could live up to Lexx`s weirdness.
you made actual points the 1st time??
Are you talking about the Hitchhiker's TV series or movie?
Japan does not have imagination and talent to adapt it properly or do anything similar.
This is now a Lexx thread
>no hyper drive or red dwarf
Not as qt as qt.
Is meow supposed to be fat or skinny I can't even tell anymore.
was a meh episode. i did enjoy the gun/diebuster homage with the kick from hawaii yankee. I really think funi needs to stop making these threads though.
/co/ would have a much better time with it.
I've really enjoyed ep 1 and the first half of ep 2.
Maybe I'm just stressed out before the week starts, but I didn't like ep 3 as much, it was too formulaic, a boob joke, and not that fun. Nor did I like part B of ep 2, but not for any reason in particular.
I'm optimistic they'll get their energy back; I hope they'll make the plot cool and original, though it could go either way, and it seems every time I say this I get disappointed.
Frankly, I haven't seen a not-disappointing anime since last spring. Everything is either regurgitation or a stupid mess.
Anyway, Scarlet best girl. Maybe I'm liking the show less because I'm doubting their sincerity about ass. They talk ass, but the show is a tit show. Shamefur.
>I really think funi needs to stop making these threads though.
Try less next time
i barely get enough anyway, /v/ likes to take all the dick.
Yeah, it seems to be losing its energy.
Hopefully they'll actually have a plot involving the planet of the apes motherfuckers.
The main problem with this show is Dandy a fucking shit, he hasn't done a single thing to make himself likeable at all, other than maybe just having a cool spaceship and a cool mecha. He's literal garbage and by Episode 3 we really should have gotten at least one reason to feel even a little bit sympathetic towards him.
Ep2 is definitely the best of the three so far.
>The main problem with this show is Dandy a fucking shit, he hasn't done a single thing to make himself likeable at all
are you even watching the show?
>Ep2 is definitely the best of the three so far.
>he hasn't done a single thing to make himself likeable at all,
He brazenly hit Scarlet up for money. I found that likeable?
i'd like to see the evidence that brought you to state the opposite.
>grasping at straws
The way he did it and walked up to her was likable
Frankly, I don't think he's supposed to be likeable, he's supposed to be fucking DANDY
I dont have anything to show. I like him,he's just a guy exploring space and trying to have an adventure
Not every MC needs a deep tragic sympathetic backstory
Also Ep 3 was better than two because it was more well done IMO
hurf durf durf durf
That just seemed kind of pathetic to me, personally.
Yeah, but is it really fair to count animation as part of character?
it's literally a cut and paste Michael Jackson move.
nothing original. nothing unique.
>Yeah, but is it really fair to count animation as part of character?
What? The way he moves and presents himself is a part of the character.
>it's literally a cut and paste Michael Jackson move.
>nothing original. nothing unique.
Im still not seeing how im supposed to hate him or how thats not supposed too make me like him
If something being unique was a necessity then i wouldn't be watching 90% of shows this seasons
I like the way he lives.
Very opposite to getting a salaried job and grooming your career.
>tfw no interstellar spaceship ;_;
I mean yes, Dandy would be pretty likeable if the show was just a big reel of him being highly animated.
The problem is his personality. I just want him to have SOME kind of redeeming personal feature, they've heaped just about every unpleasant personality trait possible onto him. Can't he have an episode where he does something nice for somebody?
you're missing the point. you don't necessarily have to hate him.
you just have to know that his over-exaggerated movements/animation is basically to blow budget away. Funi paid for good animators, but forgot to pay for good writers.
Does anybody has a .gif of the last episode when space dandy is shooting and hitting nothing?
I really, really like the first episode.
The second and third do not feel so good for me, though.
>The problem is his personality. I just want him to have SOME kind of redeeming personal feature, they've heaped just about every unpleasant personality trait possible onto him. Can't he have an episode where he does something nice for somebody?
What unlikable personality? So Far he's letting a A free loading Cat stay with him for free and or minimal compensation. I have no problem with his womanizer personality, I enjoy it
>Funi paid for good animators,
Funi didnt pay for anything other to have it be the one to dub it so i have no idea why you're even saying that
>you just have to know that his over-exaggerated movements/animation
Again i know that, I just dont care. I enjoy the way he does things and the show and makes it endearing to me.
I Enjoy that he's just a guy look for an adventure while hunting for rare aliens. The thing that could make this perfect is if the cast Bonds even more,Which QT and Dandy already have done ( presumably) so Meow is the only one that needs to get closer
I also enjoy thats he actually a fuckup while he puts on this big Macho act
>waito piggu go homu
>Yeah, but is it really fair to count animation as part of character?
Anime fans, everyone.
I guess this is what happens when the standard for your medium is to have all characterization delivered through hamfisted expository dialogue. You're so used to anime girls standing around and mouthflapping out their feelings and motivations that Dandy's blistering charisma expressed through his every word and action doesn't even register to you.
This is why Space Dandy is the hero anime deserves, but not the hero weeaboos want.
>Dandy's blistering DANDINESS expressed through his every word and action doesn't even register to you
In one post you destroyed the entirety of a good thread
you could have just told him that things like visual gags do exist and things like >>100649418 >>100649087 are clear examples
Where can I pick up a good quality dub?
commie does dual audio releases
Sawako Miyamoto (who worked on TMS' Disney efforts in the 80s like DuckTales & Rescue Rangers) worked on Episode 3 of this.
If we keep tolerating this, TMS might give us a 6th season of Animaniacs or a 4th season of Tiny Toons, no more magic make over shows please, Dandy is a severe improvement in terms of using the animator's talents.
Heres the Telecom staff members who worked on Dandy so far.
Hiroyuki Aoyama (animation director Ep.2, key animation EP.1)
Kenji Hachizaki (key animation OP, Ep.2)
Atsuko Tanaka (Ep.2)
Sawako Miyamoto (Ep.3)
Also for you Aikatsu fans on here, TMS worked on episode 65, Koichi Sunaga is one of the animation directors on that episode.
Am I witnessing the legendary TMS fanboy anonin action?
No, Just reminding people; TMS has alot of fans, so you can't just pin point one person for everything.
I meant to say "Koichi Suenaga", sorry about that.
The dub is really, really good. Dandy's voice is perfect.
I hope the story has QT takes a humanoid form somehow so she can be even more QT.
I liked the way he said "Lucky for him, Space Dandy doesn't abandon his friends!"
Except just before that he was about to abandon his friends so...
And then he didn't even save him and forgot about it.
So how well is this series doing again? Last I heard it wasn't doing so Dandy, but has it improved?
**1,920位/**1,803位 ★ (***,150 pt) [*,**4予約] 2014/04/25 スペース☆ダンディ 1 [Blu-ray]
It's not doing so well in Nipland, but I heard that westerners like it more.
Been watching both dub and sub.
The dub is pretty hilarious and the VAs are up there with some of the best. It suffers from the common rushed dialogue and such, but I've grown to accept it.
Goddamnit, I hope he developes into a likeable character at least.
Because I want to like him....
sub > dub as I'm not from the U.S
Animation quality is great, don't understand why the drop in episode 2 happened though.
How can you not love Dandy?
how is this shit already dubbed
Are Crispin Freeman and Johnny Bosch sitting there with a mic and making shit up as they watch the stream?
Its an anime made for lulz. Its either you laugh or you don't.
Its not AOTY material,but its decent. I like the characters and their antics.
simulcasting in japanese and english
I really don't understand how people can tolerate dubs.
They're not good voice acting. They're fucking terrible and it sounds ridiculous.
At least voice acting in Japan is a somewhat legit job, but in the US it's bottom of the barrel "I couldn't be a REAL actor so I have to do anime" shit.
Compare the voice acting in dandy to that of, say, courage the cowardly dog or avatar or something.
One sounds like actual people. I'll let you guess which.
sage for me being autistic.
Just watched episode 1 and I riked it. Guess /a/ is turning in light /v/ and will hate everything just for the sake of doing it
It gets only worse
Don't find it funny at all, Will stay for the glorious music unless it gets really bad, I'm disappointed by this cause I had high expectations.
>80% of Seiyuu work at McDonald's
Just finished rewatching this episode subbed, and I have to say this episode felt a lot better dubbed.
Anyone else feel the same or is it just me?
Your taste is shit though so it's ok.
Your taste is terrible as always Lelouch.
The audio is really quiet. I've been watching it in VLC just so I can boost the volume.
It's been pretty shitty so far. Disappointment of the season.
