Can you please explain what the appeal of this series?

Please do not mention the style, art or brief animation. What is good about the story, the characters, the comedy, etc.

The first 3 episodes have been nothing more than the "creative talent" fellating themselves with style over substance tripe. For the lack of pretense it tries to emit, it sure is a pretentious production.
>>

>Please do not mention the style, art or brief animation. What is good about the story, the characters, the comedy, etc.

But that's exactely what Dandy is.

A good/decent style, art and animation wasted on a meh/crap story, comedy and characters.

Nothing other than the style really, everyone hyping it like AOTS is a toonami crossboarder that needs it to be something it's not.

It's mildly humorous, just another anime to watch. There's nothing at all special about it.

So let me get this straight, you want us to explain the appeal of Space Dandy without mentioning any of its appealing aspects?
>>
Buying into the hype, pretty much.

The same people who claim that anime is terrible because of fanservice or high school characters or lack of serious plots are the same people who turn around and proclaim that shows like Space Dandy or Kill la Kill are masterpieces, despite relying on those same things they think are "killing the industry."

They built up all these expectations for the shows and then when they turned out to be totally different, they just threw away their retarded ideological arguments and decided to like them anyway because it would make them look retarded not to.
>>
>>100855904

It's not really so simple as "Muh Watanabe" it's more like "Muh that guy who made muh Cowboy Bebop. Muh Cowboy Bebop".

>>100855936
It is when it's boring and bland like Space Dandy.

Redline was style over substance done right.

>Explain the appeal of this series without mentioning these appealing aspects of the series

Even more to that point, those people claim the service in Kill la Kill or Space Dandy isn't really fanservice, and then they make some bullshit point that serves their own hypocrisy.

It's basically a send up to the old school 50's style science fiction. It's not meant to be serious, or deep, or anything of the sort.

It's just supposed to be mindless fun, which is what it largely is. Boobie monsters, food from the end of the universe, statue of liberty head with a ball gag in it, you get the point.

Just... turn your brain off for this one.

And the only fucking reason this was given a simuldub and so much hype is because of Cowboy Bebop alone. FUNi and Toonami want Cowboy Bebop 2.0 so they can replay it until 2025.
>>
team galaxy. thats it

The first episode sucks all around, the other two seem like just side show episodes although they are actually funny in parts. Episode 3 in particular is pretty decent as a stand alone joke episode but honestly the series should be focusing on developing some story or at least a hint of overarching plot at this point. Dandy hasn't even acknowledged or noticed the fact that he's being followed by a huge alien fleet but they're still in every episode despite not even being relevant in them.

Those aspects can not support a full series. A 10 minute short is fine.

Magic Witch Academia and Redline went for similar approaches. Studio wanted to show off their style and animation. The characters and stories were simple but told well enough that it wasn't boring nor insulting and held interest enough for you to invest into the main attraction.

/a/ is so caught in its own tropes that everything that hasn't been done to death thousands of time already can't have an appeal.

And in terms of so called "substance" Space Dandy is easily on par with the rest of everything this season. They are all pretty silly, because we are still talking anime here.

Space Dandy is style over substance, that is clear to everyone, the problem is it's also trying to a comedy/wacky space adventures as well and I don't think it's executing it very well

Innovation, it does something new and exciting.
Dandy is so incompetent and unfortunate that he's almost like an 80's protag, except in a modern anime setting.
It's brilliant. The humor despite your claim is pretty well done and the characters are believable.
Even so the occasional good animation in each episode is great.

High school is way overdone in anime. I don't get the appeal. All I remember from those days was feeling like I was in some kind of prison.

Space dandy is what you faggots wanted "western anime". I hope the normals pick up on this in a big way and it's such a huge success that all studios follow suit with "anime that caters to western tastes".

Pretty grim when adult life makes life in prison look better by comparison. Then again, as a nation they all just bend over and take it. You don't have to die by Karoshi and you don't have to work 70 hours a week. They could just go on strike like our workers did around the turn of the century.

40 hours a week sucks, but at least you have some time to yourself and you won't die because you worked too damn much. I pity the Salaryman for his plight as well as his lack of a spine.

Except it literally isn't. Take any other comedy show in the past year and it'll fit the criteria you set. It's not original at all, the jokes are fairly lame, there's basically no plot, and the animation is only good during a few segments of each episode, and those segments have been getting rarer since episode 1. Overall, it's fairly bad all around.

People shit on it mainly due to pre-air hype on blogs and news sites about anime finally being mature adult entertainment instead of niche pedo-bait.

It's not a bad show but outside of the animation, artstyle and explosion of colors that make it nice to look at it's not all that great yet. It has potential, sure, but what OP said feels accurate in that it's more the talent fellating themselves.

Watching Yamato 2199 and Noragami last night were a lot more entertaining.

The Japanese have made shit humor an art form and their most valued technique is the "girl is actually bad at cooking despite being a girl" joke. Asuta is so painfully generic compared to every single other person in the cast and kind of an asshole; he yells at his dad and gets kicked out of the house, he yells at a random loli he just met and puts her in tears, he yells at the only people who were kind enough to take him off the streets. But somehow everything turns out okay because he's the chosen one. The premise of loli conqueror was the only thing that made most of /a/ pick it up and it's so goddamn disappointing that the loli is barely even a main character so far.

It's a fairly fun "wacky" series so far.

It's not as good as Desert Punk or Cromartie as far as off the walls comedy goes. Not even as good as FLCL. But I've gotten a few laughs out of it, and am willing to keep up with it.

It's got sort of the same appeal Aqua Teen Hunger Force has, or a really abstract Always Sunny.

The ambiance of it.
The dandy guy in the space, the colors, the music, the whole of it is relaxing and refreshing enough to keep being interesting.

It's style over substance all right, but it doesn't need substance. It never even suggested it had substance.

Spade Dandy is just dandy fucking around in the space, and that's all it needs to be.

I just get the feeling that /a/ would eat up literally the stupidest shit thrown at them, as long as it's done with a straight face. But as soon as a show doesn't take itself seriously enough with the silly hijinks it's doing, /a/ suddenly notices that it has been watching cartoons the whole time.

Nobunaga the fool isn't worse, it's about the same level of bad. Rest is correct. Also add WCW and umetsu.

What don't you like about it anon-kun? The animation is well done, the music is great, the color palette is pleasing, the character designs are interesting, it's got fan service, mechs and it's funny.
>>
>>100860895
Except that's completely wrong. The only reason people can enjoy valvrave (I mean real people, not redditards and tumblrite invaders), for example, is to pretend it's comedy instead of being serious. A show taking itself seriously while being incapable of following through with the content is hated much more than a show that's not taking itself seriously, no matter how bad it is, on /a/.

I like how the anime that finally got a dual airing in Japanese and English before it comes out on DVD/Blu-Ray instead of waiting a year between releases is getting this type of reception.
What's going to happen when more anime start to come out with this "dual airing" especially when the English version is on Toonami?

The appeal is that it's dumb and zany. It's basically just an exercise in absurdity. Not every anime has to be a serious, plot-heavy masterpiece or a gripping character driven tale. Space Dandy won't ever be a masterpiece or anything, but it's the kind of thing you can just enjoy for its face value.
>>
It's basically the perfect fusion of Cowboy Bebop and Johny Bravo, with good production values.

And in that field it is very good.
>>
>>100863514

So from your perspective, all comedy is equal?

Never forget, many people find Jay Leno funny. Senses of humour are as varied as tastes in music, so do not condemn the quality of a show just because it does not fit your particular taste. It's as if you subconsciously assume every show has to fit your personal taste. That's just autistic.
