Who else here is watching Space Dandy simply because Shinichiro Watanabe made this?

Well entertained by this, but also can't help that is kinda a letdown.
>>
I kind of feel you, but I'm not watching this for Shinichiro. I'm mostly watching this because one of the screenwriters wrote for my favorite show.
>>
Who? Please tell me Koshi Rikdo or Nabeshin wrote this
>>
I gave it the three episode rule. Officially dropped.
>>
>>100701856
Why dropping it?
>>
I'm watching because it because Shingo Natsume made it. Can't say I'm impressed.
>>
I honestly don't know why some of you guys hate it. Were you expecting a deep show? Or like some of my retard friends who think it's gonna be like Cowboy Bebop when it's clearly Lupin in Space.
>>
I'm watching it because I give most everything a try, and it's been a fun show. I have no expectations about it based on Watanabe or Cowboy Bebop and am simply enjoying the show for what it is.
>>
>>100702139
It's shit. The only good thing about it is the music.
>>
>>100702328
What? It's no more Lupin than Fujiko was.
>>
Are there any gifs of Meow batting his paw at the hologram?
>>
>>100702403
Is the music by the Seatbelts, by any chance?
>>
Same thing happened with this and Kill la Kill. Idiots on /a/ keep expecting new Gurren Lagann and new Cowboy Bebop and when they don't get it, they bitch and moan.
>>
>>100700833
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO FUCKING TERRIBBBBBBBBBBLEEEEEEEEE

>>100703366

I hope you're banned for spamming/flooding.

Its not bad enough for me to drop, but it gets maybe a laugh or two per episode. Its just so fucking underwhelming.
>>
>>100703402
It's actually hundreds of different people telling you that space dandy is a steaming pile of turd shit. Not just 1 person posting over and over again
>>
Everyone forgets that Bebop had plenty of mediocre-to-bad episodes. I'd even go so far as to say more than half of them aren't worth a rewatch. Imagine /a/ watching Stray Dog Strut, BWFS, or Ganymede Elegy for the first time and putting it under the microscope.
>>
>>100703482
Prove it. Quote every single person in this thread saying it's shit and snip your results. Show me you aren't a samefag.
>>
>>100703483
>Stray Dog Strut
But that's one of my favorite episodes next to SLAC, Pierrot LeFieu, Cowboy Funk and Sympathy for the Devil.
>>
>>100703483
The difference Bebop had a strong start, so bad episodes were just a temporary dip. Having a weak start doesn't inspire confidence for future eps.
>>
>>100703483
I can't think of a single episode that was disappointing. For the most part, they all had a purpose, or were interesting. I've been them all multiple times, as has any /a/tard.
>>
>>100703848
>as has any /a/tard.

I've probably seen them all 2-3 because they aired on AS during my teens, but I didn't even think Cowboy Bebop was that good. I still don't.
>>
I just came across this on one of my favorite commissioner's FA page. Most of these have less than 200 views so I assume that means none of you Meow faggots around here have seen it yet. So check this motherfucker's gallery out. It goes all the way into the next page on his gallery. He's /really/ fucking into Meow. I wish I had the money to commission art of him like this.

I don't give a fuck. I go where the Meow is. If some faggot wants to upload a gigabyte worth of images of him on FA, then I'm there bro.
>>
>>100700833
I think the problem is that since Shinichiro Watanabe people are comparing it so in depth to Cowboy bebop, even though the shows are pretty different.
This is more comedy whereas bebop is mainly drama
>>
>>100704763
what about Samurai Champloo?
>>
>>100704763
I'd really hate to say this because I really fucking hated the comic relief that was constantly thrown in my face in cowboy bebop, I mean it's the reason I dislike the show.
but cowboy bebop was funnier.
even though it wasn't their intention.
This show is a fucking shitstack all around with some few exceptions.
I personally am only watching it for Meow.
If only he could have been in an anime that wasn't complete diarrhea.
>>
>>100700833
I'm only watching this because of /a/ and that fucking pompadour.
I want to stroke it so bad.
>>
>>100704763
We were told ahead of time that "if Cowboy Bebop was 20% comedy and 80% drama, then Space Dandy is 80% comedy and 20% drama." If people were expecting something like Cowboy Bebop, they weren't paying attention. Even still, I was expecting something with at least a coherent plot. I don't like how characters apparently die and then just suddenly they're still there next episode. It's just a little too silly for me to love it. I'm still watching it because bonding with little brother and appreciating the animation though.
>>
>>100704918
we were told that is was like the mushroom episode but every week, except that episode is funnier thna anything in Space Dandy
>>
I admit the show started off pretty slow but I thought episode three was pretty good. It gave me hope that Dandy isn't completely useless and can be badass once in awhile.
>>
>>100700833
I really disliked the first episode, I didn't have strong feelings about the second, and I kinda liked the third one. So I'm not sure where I stand on this show. I'm going to give it a couple more episodes.
>>
>>100704918
I think that comedy in general is a difficult genre to get right for any medium, due to senses of humour varying greatly between people. So just in general, majority would find this show a letdown

>>
>>100705030
Who were you told that by?
>>
>>100705384
That's probably true. Comedy is a lot more subjective than something like drama or action which have slightly more concrete metrics.
>>
I watched ep 1 and was pretty bored. I had a few laughs and that's about it. I kind of get the appeal, but it's just not entertaining to me.
>>
>>100705582
>i had a few laughs
I'm genuinely curious. Can you give me an example of something you found funny?
I smirk maybe three times an episode and I'm normally an easily entertained guy.
>>
Watanabe bumped it up on my to-watch priority, but I was gonna check it out regardless because the premise seemed fun and it was done by Bones. I give everything by bones a shot because they have consistently good animation.
>>
>>100705609

Not him but

>ep3, where he shoots laser beams in various poses and misses all of them
>ep3 where it turns put that the aliens were warning him all along, mostly because of the dub
>same ep where he abandons meow but turns back when it turns out he still got his boobies card
>Spass Landy preview>>100705439
>>
I find boob jokes to be boring and tasteless, as well as the repetitive humour thing (tweeting -> getting caught -> tweeting -> getting caught etc) so overall the show's pretty disappointing but the silly pointless storylines such as finding a unique ramen kind of entertain me

a-are you fucking serious?

... There's nickelodeon cartoons that have higher brow comedy than that.
I'd say Dandy looks cool as fuck when he does badass poses, he's like a combination of a greaser douchebag and a super exaggerated women's romance novel protag, but what kind of five year old would find the fact that he misses funny at all?
>>
>>100705439
How did the TV airing get away with this?
>>
>>100705887
It blurred the nipples.
>>
>>100704918
I think that sometimes the Japanese confuse "Comedy" with "Lighthearted".
>>
>>100705384
In particular that Japanese sense of humor and western sense of humor seem to be very incompatible.
>>
>>100705999
There's definitely a big difference between Japanese humor and Western humor. I think Japanese humor tends to be a lot more subtle and they like wordplay a lot more than we do. Humor varies all around the world really. I mean compare the BBC to anything else on western TV.
>>
>>100705880
On the first episode, after he misses, he does this spin thing and drops his gun, but the scene and Dandy play out as if it didn't happen and its completely ignored. I think that was the only time I laughed during the entire episode.

>>100705875
Even with low expectations its just not very funny. Most gags suck.

>>
>>100706079
You forget that both Watanabe's previous shows had more success in the West than it did in Japan, particularly in the U.S because of the dubbed versions. So he and whatever team he works with can do comedy that branches that cultural barrier. And while Bebop was more of a drama than Champloo was, most of its jokes did hit the mark in terms of being relatable by American audiences. I even find Space Dandy entertaining and quite enjoy it, but it does have moments where the jokes seem to be aimed at a different audience than the jokes in his previous two shows.
>>
>>100703214
No. Still stellar. the ED is composed/arranged by Yoko Kanno, however.

Flop of the year. Saving anime my ass.

Thanks got we still have Yamakan.

>>100706089
>he does this spin thing and drops his gun
That got me good, and to be honest I don't know if it was supposed to be all that funny. There must have been many people that missed it because it happened so fast, so it's like it wasn't intended to be a main joke of the episode.
>>
I'm watching it for the animation

Nothing to be disappointed with so far

yeah, Cowboy Bebop is one of the few anime that actually makes me laugh, I think is because the drama made me care about the characters so when something happens to them, I'm invested and is funny, Space Dandy is joke after jokes without a moments that make me care about the characters

I have the problem that I just can't really figure out what I'm watching. It feels like a series of vignettes rather than any sort of coherent story.


Episode 1: Alien Hunter beams down to planet with his new cat companion only to be completely overwhelmed by aliens. A giant mech appears and makes a Terminator 2 reference. Then everyone blows up.

Episode 2: The search for the ultimate ramen leads them to an alternative dimension inhabited by an old alien who became a chef after accidentally killing his girlfriend with his flame breath.

Episode 3: A transforming escape pod mech in a Hawaiian shirt fights a literal titty monster over a reward card for Space Hooters.
>>
>>100710330

it's the same thing champloo and bebop did

crazy and episodic with minor amounts of character development snuck in periodically
>>
dropped bebop twice. Enjoying this because its fresh bottle of water in an endless sea of harem and mecha/phantom shits.

Is it gonna keep the episodic structure?
>>
Are the episodes even connected at all or is this some kind of reset after every episode anime?
It feels like a complete waste of time watching this.

What I wanted: Space Adventures and tits.

I am having a blast. Not sure what people are mad about.
