how do you guys like Space Dandy?
Personally, I think it's funny and trippy. I thought it was cool that America got an anime that would premier in the USA first, instead of Japan. that was something I did NOT expect.
>outstanding animation and design work
>visual storytelling and characterization in spades, virtually unheard of in anime
>unprecedented level of east-west collaboration that is the most significant thing to happen to the medium in years
>improving with every episode
It's awesome. I find it really sad that there are people on /a/ who can't enjoy it.
Its personally my AotS.
I have never let people /a/ dictate my taste for me.
You're a sad person.
>onefag who tries to trole every thread
>I thought it was cool that America got an anime that would premier in the USA first, instead of Japan
That true? What channel does it air over there?
if you like it your sense of humor is terrible to say the least
Mediocre, the people hyping it are going to be pretty funny once it crashes and burns
Its pretty good, its the show i'm looking forward to watch each week the most
First episode was shit. I enjoyed the latter half of ep 2. Liked ep 3 whole. By the end it'll probably be AOTY.
How in the fuck do you not know?
Anime is mediocre but opening is 10/10
I like it and my sense of humour is better than yours.
The humor is juvenile. Which would have fine had it been funny.
i want to bone the cat
Fuck off newshit.
I love it. It's stupid and great fun.
Overall rather enjoyable. I'm looking forward to it.
It's okay so far.
It's mediocre, and I can't help but think most of the people in these threads haven't been on /a/ for longer than a few weeks by the way they type.
It's shit, it feels like like anime and more like trash I'd normally find on cartoon network or wherever "adult" humor garbage airs these days.
It's good, but anyone claiming it's AOTY is clearpy a toonamifaggot overinvested that NEEDS this to be what it's not.
Episodes have been half bad and half good, making it literally mediocre.
The good halves are bretty good and trippy.
Feels like a saturday morning cartoon.
I am enjoying it.
Not so sure joining East and West is entirely beneficial for the medium. Bringing the West into it means bringing western sensibilities
I love the style and animation.
The humor is kind of hit or miss at times.
Still best show this season.
Am i wrong?
Better than cowboy beebpop
It reminds you the old "golden time" of anime. Hipsters hate it only because it is too mainstream.
You know there's a way to check if they're the same person or not, right? Fucking moron.
>European so can't watch it live
>watch it first thing Sunday morning instead
Feels kind of nostalgic getting up for cartoons
Holy shit this couldn't be more wrong.
The show is honestly mediocre. The jokes don't make me laugh at all, but I like the art and the third episode's action sequence was somewhat decent.
I'm still not sure whether I should keep watching it or not.
>Most significant thing to happen to anime in years
>Implying this is actually going to have anywhere near the influence as Haruhi
>Implying it'll have any influence at all
RWBY will have made a bigger impact.
Haruhi aired almost a decade ago.
Actually, it will.
No nip businessman will ever premiere shit in america again.

Japan doesn't seem to like it very much. Did they make this show only to appeal the western audience or what?
That's pretty damn low.
All the same guy. Go ahead and disprove me.
I don't think this is going to kill Crunchy so it's not like it'll never happen.
I could see them trying to pull something with SAO or SnK's second season seeing it's appeal in the west.
Japan hated Shin Mazinger even more.
I love it
Then again Im starved for sci-fi space anime
They're just butthurt.
Jesus. They have to be boicotting it.
Yeah, how? pls tell
Did you not watch Yamato or something?
Oh right of course not, you've been on /a/ for all of three weeks.
Well, your lolbutthurt is their loyal fanbase, no one wamts otakus angry at them, just look at yamakan.
Yeah 30 years ago
Well that goes without saying because Meow is fucking awful in both languages.
So how do you find out samefags? Does it have something to do with abusing the report system?
Fuck off, newfag
>So many people disliking my favourite show
>T-they must be the same person!
Meow makes the show.
>Implying you've lived for even half that
Not him, but out of all those posts, nobody has bothered to screencap to prove him wrong.
Gets me so angry every time
Do you have a (You) at the end of your post number that the people reply to?
Because it's obvious to anyone that he's wrong, and even if someone posted it you'd call shopping?
Face it, a lot of people don't like Dandy on /a/.
Because screencaps are worthless.
>Implying screencapping means shit
You could edit it with Paint in, like, 2 seconds. That proves absolutely nothing.
But still, statistically, at least one person would have bothered to screencap it to prove his innocence. It really does seem like a lot of samefagging.
So you're saying that the people who don't like Dandy are smart enough to not prove the obvious?
Good to know.
Probably because nobody among them is as new as you.
No, most people don't do it on /a/, since it's useless.
Are you this new?
Shh. Give them time to photoshop it in.
Yeah, this. It was a lot of posts to photoshop innocence for, thats why its taking a lot of time for anyone to post a screencap even though its 8 different people that could have posted a truthful screencap by now.
I find it funny that all this newfaggots are so reluctanct to accept many anons are shitting on dandy.
Anytime you proclaim a show to be AOTS, there's a good chance even peoppe that like it will say it's shit or mediocre because hipsters, add toonami to that and it isn't weird dandy isn't liked on /a/
It's /a/ being tsundere. Haters dropped this show every week. If there were no people watch this, we won't get so much shitposter in this thread.
>STOP LIKING THINGS
Please be aware that this is a symptom of severe Autism.
Trying too hard.
Look here /a/non as an animator I can tell you even if that was true it falls on the low end of the scale. There is much worse shit like under that category like family guy and Nichijou. Everything in space dandy happens for a reason and isn't randumb
>I thought it was cool that America got an anime that would premier in the USA first, instead of Japan. that was something I did NOT expect.
You've never posted here, right?
Not really, is this your first time liking a hated show?
Still trying too hard.
I mean, i like dandy and i also liked madoka, and this is pretty similar, most of /a/ just doesn't like this, newfag.
Don't you ever, EVER, call me a newfag. I have been lurking for two years, fucking long enough to post now without embarrassing myself. I know my way around this site. I slip up, but I know my way around this site. I know more about everything that gets posted here more than you ever, EVER will, you fucking ignorant piece of shit. Yes, I like Dandy. Yes, I find it entertaining, fucking deal with it, or eat shit and get hepatitis from it.
Subtlety is the key.
What? I'm an /a/ newfag lurker and Yamato was one of the first I ever watched. I was under the impression that old stuff is generally pretty entry-level.
>Implying Madoka was hated as it aired.
Get a load of this faggot.
Why are you posting?
But not necessarely, yamato is more obscure.
Let's just settle this with a poll
Uhh guys, I just used the samefag checker and something weird has happened, can someone explain?
You just have multiple personalities, anon.
Nothing conclusive will come of this, anon.
you fucked up
It was a hard choice for me between giving it a 3 or a 4. Honestly though the only reason I know I'm still watching it is because my little brother watches it and I like having something to bond with him over. It's way too silly for me so I give it a 3.
I hope you enjoy your new virus waifu.
I shat myself there for a second. Now I'm okay, actually I'm not okay but I'm okay at the moment. Carry on.
It will give us an overall idea, at least.
>All female characters are 18+
>Vanilla fanservice; the only real fetish character thus far was a monster-of-the-week
>Designed with western market in mind/not Japanese enough
No wonder /a/ hates it.
What did i tell you? No one thinks it's pire shit or AOTS, most poeple think it's either decent or meh
>I think it's funny and trippy
Yep, I like how surreal it is. Not Lain or FLCL level but surface level enjoyable. Also the soundtrack is great. That ED is my favorite of the season.
And this is what most of those who were accused of samefagging said, actually.
Not if I proxy spam.
Get you butts ready for 300+ Its shit votes.
Space Dandy's haterbase is more cancerous than it's fanbase.
They are both horrible.
Pupa has the best fanbase this season.
Do as you wish.
/a/ seems to be split between "I like it" and "it's mediocre", anyway.
Does Pupa even have a fanbase?
>Pupa has the best fanbase this season.
Who is it?
Agreed, Pupa and Xebec's new show have the best fanbases.
>Does Pupa even have a fanbase?
Most people watching it are admitting that it's terrible and just appreciating it for how terrible it is. It's sort of like Master of Martial Hearts or ImoCho form this season: something so bad it's good in a way.
This is a dandy thread, i think if you went for /a/'s opinion it'd be a little more biased towards it's mediocre/boring.
You have to consider the number of people who thought it was boring and the fact that they would have already dropped it by now.
From the looks of it, /a/'s AOTS is loliconquest
Then why can't you leave the threads alone?
It's not funny
But i consider it mediocre, yet i still watch it.
Not my fault you newfaggots have to proclaim it like the best anime ever when it's average
>Dissenting opinions means you hate the show.
I'm sorry for telling the truth as it is /co/.
This isn't a hugbox you know? I don't hate the show myself, but you're an idiot if you think the only person who is allowed in these threads are people who like what you like.
Because I'm just about still watching it even though it's mediocre. This place isn't your personal echo chamber.
Yeah, you're right. A lot of people who are still watching SD find it rather mediocre, apparently.
I see, so there's people watching it ironically. I've seen a lot of people who genuinely like Imocho, though, is it the same for Pupa?
You should already know this, is this your first week on /a/?
>Ironically watching it
Holy shit will you stop it with that?
You don't "ironically" like something, you can like something even if you don't think it's of very high quality. People don't, "ironically" like The Room, they like it because it's hilarious.
>I've seen a lot of people who genuinely like Imocho
They're all there for a fap and they'll forget it after the season ends.
This, nevermind the fact that you are asking questions you fould just reason.
Mediocre show that is extremely overhyped, like every seasonal show that gets hyped on /a/.
I wish you guys would just agree on which anime is good and which is bad so I could just follow the herd like the mindless sheep I am
I do, I didn't know about people watching Pupa ironically, though.
No but you can "ironically" watch something because of how bad it is, e.g GC and Diabolik Lovers.
That would be a circlejerk.
That's not ironically watching it, when you say that it just makes you sound like an obnoxious idiot.
If you watch something because it's bad you're just watching it, not "ironically" watching it.
Maybe you watched something that was bad because you like bad things. I don't think that's very ironic.
Well, people who like something for the "wrong" reasons(because it's a shitty show, for instance), often say "I watch it ironically". I don't understand what's all this fuss about, I believe it's a good term to describe what I feel when I watch something bad just because I want to make fun of it.
I think that's a pretty stupid reason to watch a show, but whatever helps you shitpost on /a/ I guess.
Are you implying or trying to convince yourself people watch dandy because of that?
You hugboxing /co/cksuckers are unbearable.
Are you the same /co/ guy who wants people who dislike SD to leave the thread, by any chance?
Greatest soundtrack of the season.
The sole reason I watch it.
Cutest character in anime history.
Noragami's is better
>unprecedented level of east-west collaboration that is the most significant thing to happen to the medium in years
Japanese still did 99 percent of the work.
All this has done is give people a false idea that anime is relevant as a market in the US, which is why you have all these retards running around talking about a "second anime boom" and now falsely believe that any series can air in the US because of simulcasts. In reality, simulcasts are nowhere near becoming an industry standard (and this is assuming they will be in the first place at some point).
Alright, Adult Swim is carrying on a tradition they've had for over a decade. That's fine, but people need to take a reality check instead of the usual "Why do they support Family Man instead of anime for week-nights?!!?!" shit you see on /co/
>Others say it so it must be a good term!
Irony isn't watching something because you derive some form of enjoyment from it.
>niwakas going all "muh sales" about Amazon preorders, even though they never buy anime
Show is ok, but soundtrack is superb. Can't argue with that
its reminds me of Ace ventura xD
Eat a dick
Does it also remind you that they made a crappy direct-to-DVD movie about his fatass son?
Bebop and Champloo were far better.
Yeah, Watanabe has lost his touch a bit
Get a load of this faggot!
>The director is the one in charge of music
>Watanabe directing SD
I fucking hated episode 1.
Riddle me this fans of space dandy,
does it get better?
Really, as someone who likes the show, I can agree that episode 1 is bad. But it seems to progressively pick itself up as it goes on. Give it a go. If not that, then well, that's your opinion. No stopping you.
Episode 1 ending felt too out of place if that's what you are talking about. It's like they decided to dump their budget on those last 5 minutes making it feel completely out of place. Looked neat though.
>fans of space dandy
wait, those are a thing?
I know of "fans of Meow" and "fans of the soundtrack" and "fans of the animation".
But who the fuck actually calls themselves a fan of the show in general?
I love the soundtrack, and the show has its moments, but overall it's just ok. Not great, not bad, just alright.
The ED song really feels like from a different show. It's probably my favourite thing about the series anyway, along with the visuals in the ED.
There is no collaboration. I think Space Dandy was just FUNi and Toonami telling Watanabe: "we want another Cowboy Bebop". Fuck, the only reason Space Dandy is even getting this treatment is because FUNi and Toonami can sell it on the Cowboy Bebop connection through Watanabe. It has nothing to do with Space Dandy's own merits and strengths, it's relying on American fandom not moving on from a 16 year old series.
According to the people at CN, Bones and Funi approached them about doing the simulcast which was given the greenlight because Watanabe's involvement, so you're not too far off the mark
>bringing Western sensibilities to anime
>not entirely beneficial
Nigga do you even Bebop?
It's pretty great. QT is my waifu for laifu.
I almost feel bad for the people that think this means a new anime boom, in fact, it wouldn't surprise me if it had the opposite effect.
If they couldn't sell it "BUY THE COWBOY BEBOP GUY, YOU GUYS STILL LOVE COWBOY BEBOP, RIGHT? COWBOY BEBOP COWBOY BEBOP COWBOY BEBOP COWBOY BEBOP COWBOY BEBOP COWBOY BEBOP COWBOY BEBOP COWBOY BEBOP COWBOY BEBOP COWBOY BEBOP COWBOY BEBOP" it would have never had a simuldub and cable premier. Of this, I am convinced.
The best part is how the show is nothing like Cowboy Bebop, aside from them both being an episodic series in a scifi setting.
Looks like /co/ and the likes are sucking it up though.
Of course. Nobody ever denied that
It's only indicative that the American fandom still likes Cowboy Bebop and want more Cowboy Bebop, even if it means to have to heave Cowboy Bebop's name recognition onto an entirely unrelated series.
If Space Dandy were 100% the same series, in visuals, music, style, acting, etc, but had someone equally well known like Shoji Kawamori as the series director, there would have never been this effort expended for a cable simuldub.
This times a million.
All Funimation did was write a script and record some voices. Hardly anything compared to the Japanese. If that's someone's definition of "collaboration" then they must have a screw loose.
Terrible idea for anime companies given how dead the US market is. Of course /co/ will eventually have to deal with all the "where's my X simulcast?!?" fags
i doubt this will be repeated too much in the future.
I like this show but
Are you fucking kidding me?
Far from it atm.
They didn't even write a script so much as translate and adapt the dialog parts to match the lipflaps, lipflaps that would have been animated going off the Japanese script, like all other anime. They had nothing to do with storyboarding or planning. It's just a massively sped up dub in terms of time elapsed, and people still think that just because it airs a few hours faster than Japan that it makes the English the original language.
I wasn't quite sold on the first episode but the ending of it was pretty fun to watch. The show feels like it's getting better as it goes so I'm hoping to end up with something great by the end of it, but time will tell.
You mean no more pedo shit? Cause that would be great.
>The ability to tolerate differences
Why are we unable to do this?
Sadly, that's the only shit that sells.
>Dandy having his leg over her little robo tummy
Because we are not /co/ thankfully
It's alright, I find it quite fun week-to-week but don't really think about it much after it's over; it's got no staying power and the mind because it's basically just treading water instead of really going anywhere.
I hope it moves beyond episodic stuff soon, because it reminds me a lot of why I get so bored with Western cartoons. I mean, episodic works fine with comedy, but Dandy is only mildly funny at best, I'd say Dandy is far, far more "amusing" than I would "funny", for its creativity/characters/music. Most of the time the show is much more of campy adventure streak than comedic, and with that, you expect there to be at least some kind of underlying plot. So until it develops one I'd say Dandy is alright, but is sorely wasting its potential. Here's to hoping it has some fucking crazy plot.
But /co/ is the best board on the site...
I'm from /co/ and I can say this is bullshit and bait and /co/ is even worse than /a/. At least /a/ is not constantly bitching over feminism and tumblr, while promoting their own tumblrs on the side.
It used to be good, now it's worse than us, sad.
Why the fuck are you posting?
Years ago you could have said that, sure.
It's largely become the board you go to when you want to discuss something you couldn't on the board it belongs on because you ask stupid shit, or just don't know how said board works.
>Someone posts some crappy ill-informed thread on /a/
>Get blasted because they don't lurk
>Infuriated, they go set up shop on /co/ because "close enough"
>"Hey guys, what do you think of X? I don't like /a/ and anime is cartoons soooo"
This coupled with the whole "/co/ is love" mentality killed them. At this point they'll take in anyone with open arms, even obvious shitposters which leads to easily trolling.
Hell, take Star Wars or Toonami threads for example. You have a single rampant shitposter bitching and moaning about Star Wars, and everybody replies like magnets every time he appears. Nobody ever thinks to report them because "lol he's just one of the bros! Love that guy!", which is probably a by-product of having too many cancerous Generals going at once.
It's glory days are long gone.
And yet it still not nearly as shit as /a/ is.
Let me guess, you are mad because people are mean?
Maybe a couple years ago. They don't really feel like a solid community anymore, it's more like a highschool cafeteria with the homestuck fags off on their own table, people discussing marvel/dc live-action movies in another, AT/GF/Frozen (really? there's a dedicated frozen fanbase? just wow) all have their own respective tables.
They're very insular now; a bunch of micro-commuties that often have little to do with each other forcefully cooped up in the same room. Pretty much the only cross-table topic there these days is the endless back-and-forth about feminism and/or tumblr, which is about as fun as sticking your hand in a blender.
>Not shittier than /a/
>really? there's a dedicated frozen fanbase? just wow
I don't know why you're surprised, given some of the other shit they've obsessed over.
>better than /co/
mfw I have no face
To be fair the movie was super successful apparently, so that should come as no surprise
>When all else fails, accuse people of shitposting
People are giving their opinions, you are just shitposting by screaming and memearrowing.
God, just fuck all of you. You're all insufferable faggots with shit taste.
Well, at least I don't think this show is AOTY or AOTS yet.
you're so mad over nothing
you must be fun at parties
Truth is, we don't even need the elitism redirect barrier, deep down we are just as elitist while discussing shit.
Get a load of this faggot.
>stop hating what I like!
Shouldn't you be watching chinese moe drama #1386 animated by koreans
>All Funimation did was write a script and record some voices. Hardly anything compared to the Japanese. If that's someone's definition of "collaboration" then they must have a screw loose.
And the western funding, western animators and western designers working on the project...
I've been here since 2006. Your call.
However, I also like Dandy, I just don't like how it's treading water and want it to get a plot going, otherwise it'll get boring as non-stop episodic stuff. It's more of an adventure show than a comedy, and adventures need fucking plots to get us to care about them.
A small percentage from what I imagine to be CN is hardly anything.
>I have never let people /a/ dictate my taste for me.
This nigga gets! I don't know why people think the opinions of other people should affect theirs.
I think he was on your side.
You're not wrong, toonamifaggot is just a worse term to use than japniggers. It breathes more autism than people who praise the accuracy of fandubs.
