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.
>>
Meh.
>>
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.
>>
>>100610512
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.

>>100610641
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.
>>
>>100610641
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.
>>
>>100610896
>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.

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.
>>
>>100610425
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.
>>
>>100610425

It's okay, I expected more, though.

I mean, it's not bad, but it lacks focus and ambition.

It's silly fun. And decent music.

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.
>>
>>100611401
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?
>>
>>100611724
The same way they're going to explain how Meow is still alive after ep3.

i.e. they won't.
>>

>>100611724
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.
>>
>>100611805

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.

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.

>>100614919
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.
>>
>>100615675
This. The show just seems more suited to English especially considering it's influenced by the West.

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.
>>
>>100617145
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.

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.

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...

I got what I wanted out of it. I never expected anything super amazing
>>
>>100610425
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.

At least watch superior animation instead of wasting time on shit like SD

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.

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.

>>100649003
>The main problem with this show is Dandy a fucking shit, he hasn't done a single thing to make himself likeable at all

He brazenly hit Scarlet up for money. I found that likeable?

Not every MC needs a deep tragic sympathetic backstory

>>100649087

it's literally a cut and paste Michael Jackson move.

nothing original. nothing unique.
>>
>>100649133
>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.
>>
>>100649157
>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
>>
>>100649133
I like the way he lives.
Very opposite to getting a salaried job and grooming your career.
>tfw no interstellar spaceship ;_;
>>
>>100649164
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?
>>
>>100649207

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.

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


>>100649260
>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

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.

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?

>>100650506
No, Just reminding people; TMS has alot of fans, so you can't just pin point one person for everything.

>>100650239
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...

>>100651085
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?

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.

>>100651132
Goddamnit, I hope he developes into a likeable character at least.
Because I want to like him....

Animation quality is great, don't understand why the drop in episode 2 happened though.

It's fun.

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.

>>100650706
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.

Anyone else feel the same or is it just me?
