/a/


Just finished the first episode and it was... kinda bad. Unfunny, not exciting, annoying characters. Music wise decent, some scenes had greeeat animation though.


Does it get better? I am got rather sleepy after the first episode.
>>
>Show just started and only has 4 episodes
>Just watching one and stopping and asking if you should keep going
Quit being retarded.
>>
>>101051042

To be fair all the episodes until now were pretty weak. Not terrible. But nothing special. The comedy on Samurai Champloo was just better.
>>
>>101051042
The OP and ED are some of the very best in the entire season, if not the best.

The first 3 episodes were 6/10 at best, surely a disapointment considering whose hand this work is coming from.

The 4th episode (this week's) was the best so far, so, keep going, if the 4th episode doesn't rejuvenate your hope for this show, then put it on hold and stay put for future reaction after the show ends or develops well into its 2nd cour.

>Commie subs
You're fucking joking, right?
>>
The first episode was far worse than the other 3, but if you hated the first you might not like the rest. Just watch them and see faggot.

It doesn't get better.

It's painfully unfunny and the episodes lack substance to the extreme level.

It also suffers from "japs think this is what americans find funny" syndrome so you have a lot of really shitty "humor" throughout
>>
>>101052464
yeah yeah, take it as you like.

>>101052423
What would you recomment me?


Thank you for the replies guys.
>>
>>101052249
Am I the only one in this world that thought Champloo was shit? Even after all this time I've only watched up to episode 17 because I couldn't bring myself to finish it.
>>
If Space Dandy is bad, then why does it get over a 1 million viewers on Toonami? Checkmate.
>>
>>101052735
Are 1 million viewers even a lot? I mean, for American standards?
>>
It thought it was rather good, it's probably my favorite show this season.

I dropped it too. But i don't think it's bad. And the comedy was just better handled there than in Space Dandy( Which is kinda bad since Dandy is a lot more about funny things than Champloo ).
>>
>>101052817
It's not bad, but not great. Bad by normal television's standards, but then that's irrelevant with toonami

Space Dandy in a nutshell
>>
>>101052735
American interest is a terrible statistic to measure an anime's worth. Cowboy Bebop, it's great, a solid 8/10 in my book, but it's still overrated in the sense that it gets onanized as a 10/10 by the north american crowd simply because it has Cowboy in the title, and the protagonist smokes and shoots a firearm.

One thing is, a show being good.
Another thing is who is praising it and for what reason.
>>
>>101052936
Isn't the manga an adaption of the anime?
>>
>>101052900
The whole ratings system is fucked up anyway.

>>
>>101051042
The next episodes are a bit better. The whole ending sequence of the first episode had great animation but it was just random nonsense that ended in them all getting blown up and dying. The following episodes also have a lack of continuity in character death, but they aren't quite so meaningless.
>>
>>101052817
Its pretty good for what Space dandy is.

1 million isn't bad at all.

just try saying "SPACUUU DANDY" a few times

Every episode has a different staff so basically it's a grab-bag show. Naturally some episodes are gonna be good and some will be mediocre and some will be bad. The ED is always amazing at least.

It's kind of refreshing that Dandy isn't actually a badass when he gets serious, like Lupin, Kenshin, Vash, and Gintoki. Though he is good at running away.

The first 5 or so minutes of the first episode killed it for me when I saw it on Toonami. I think Dandy's Jap VA is what really saved it for me when I watched the rest of it subbed, well him and the OP.

Well you have to consider timeslot and audience.
Space Dandy has no audience outside of people that already watch Toonami, and I have no idea when it airs but it isn't exactly primetime.
So it's pretty good, yeah.
>>
For all the hype and all-star production team members behind it, it's actually pretty average.

Lower your expectations and just watch it casual.
>>
>>101055959
http://www.square-enix.co.jp/magazine/yg/introduction/spacedandy/

I understand.

Somebody needs to translate this.
>>
Its pretty meh.

It feels very much like a show I'd watch if I was 14.
I probably should drop it, but I'll give it another episode because something MIGHT happen.
>>
>>101056379

Why do you people need an overarching dramatic plot on everything? Just wait for the revelation of Dandy's thing with the Gogol Empire already, jesus christ.
>>
>>101053024
That's not why Cowboy Bebop is popular in America

>>101052622
I wouldn't say it was shit, but I definitely did not get into it, myself.

>>101053693
Written by Dai Sato, everything else by Michio Mihara.

Hope it's like episode 12 of Kemonozume where Mihara animates the whole thing.
>>
This show is the savior of anime. I'm glad you guys introduced me to it.
>>
>>101056379
>I'll give it another episode because something MIGHT happen.
What are you expecting to happen from an episodic show with a revolving door of writers and has no continuity? It's not going to smack us in the face with an actual story or plot out of bumfuck nowhere or even going to promise a consistent level of quality, since there are at least four episode writers confirmed and we're not even a quarter through the series.
>>
>>101053024

Its around midnight on Saturday night depending on your timezone. Not a good timeslot at all.
