It's not like you have anything better to do.
>>
>>101076725
I'll have you know I actually have a job to go to
it's a 3 hour shift then I go home and watch anime
>>
OP is nice, the animation is lively, the comedy is spot-on, but if there's an attempt at any serious plot like Cowboy Bebop, I've yet to see it even hinted at.

Yet another series passing by like a pleasant breeze, as of now.
>>
I don't even like anime that much, I just wanted to stop by and say that I've really enjoyed the first four episodes. It's giving me a distinct Bo Bo Bo feel, just more coherent and less completely off the wall. Better.

The show seems to not really care about past events at all and just wants to do its own thing each episode. Which is fine, but I don't see this being incredibly long running while still maintaining the quality if that's what it's shooting for.

Who knows, maybe they can squeeze four seasons out of it, it's been pretty creative so far, but I kinda get the feeling it's gonna have a fantastic first season and a steady decline from there.

But man, this animation is top tier. Meow is kawaii as fuck. Dat laugh man.

Oh and I also gotta say the American voice actor for Space Dandy is pretty great. I like the US voice over the Japanese voice, but they're both pretty great. This series obviously has some love put into it.

>Who knows, maybe they can squeeze four seasons out of it
>52 episodes of writing gags and animating this hard

Anon, please. You're going to give them karoshi.
>>
>>101077790
this is some quality bait
>>
>>101077852
Like I said, maybe.

They're starting off pretty strong here, enough to get me, a non anime watcher not only interested but thoroughly entertained.

I think the moment they got me by the hook was when Dandy almost blows Meow out the airlock, and then when he almost does it again they did new frames for it instead of reusing the same frames from the first time.

>>101077914
/a/ why you so paranoid.

And don't worry, not here to stay, but I just watched the Japanese dubs and felt like talking Space Dandy and this is the most appropriate place to talk about anime.
>>
Kind of like with Tatami Galaxy.
>>
>>101077982
52 episodes marks a series of groundbreaking, historical proportions. It generally doesn't happen anymore for a number of reasons:
1. animator fatigue vs high standards set today (see how shitty Gundam 79 was)
2. novelty sells more
3. market too diverse for everyone to flock to one show and hail it as AOTYAY, even in a monocultural society as Japan

There is no way this is getting any more than one additional season; as it's going now, it's not getting one because it's going to be hard to monetize, given it isn't standard moe-feed. My prediction would be an OVA.
>>
>>101078130
Oh okay. Well then it's probably for the best.

Good to know so I won't make an ass out of myself in the future I guess.

>serious plot like Cowboy Bebop

only three or four episodes of Cowboy Bebop contributed to the plot, the rest was Spike and his brave Space Crew being Space Bounty Hunters in Space
>>
>>101078351
Sounds like plot to me.
>>
>>101078398

and as of now the amount of plot in Space Dandy is about tied with the amount in Bebop by its fourth episode
>>
>>101078499
Boobs count as plot right?

Cause Dandy has a lot of plot right now.
>>
>Japanese Intro has great music, interesting visuals, and is great.
>American intro is a shitty dull 30 second blurb taken from the first episode.

Why?
>>
>>101078520
The music has a really weird beat in the Japanese version.

Ups and downs, but it's hard to memorize the tempo to that thing.

Great visuals though, I agree. One of the smoother animations I've seen in a while.
>>
>>101078520
They couldn't license it for whatever reason. I heard they're working on it though?
>>
4 episodes in and still underwhelming.
Feels like japanese failing at trying to emulate western comedy.

The show reminds me of that old duck dodgers cartoon a bit. But honestly, it could be better though. I'd start with the soundtrack. The intro with the WOOOOWEEEWOOOOO is great and makes it stand out more, but then it cuts into some generic pop song.
I feel like for the show as a whole they want to bust out of the box to try something new, but someone is deliberately holding them back to deliver retarded boob jokes with minimal character development
>>
The visuals are consistently great eye candy, so I'm going to keep watching

I saw both the american a japanese and I didn't liked the english dub. Especially Dandy's voice. But that's maybe because I'm not from murica and am not so used to the american dubs.

Anyway, I'm enjoying this show a lot. As for now it certainly don't strike me as anything near "memorable" but sure is sparky and entertaining. Dandy is best.

Sadly I agree. I would say that designs are also really good in this show.
But aside from that? This is just a mess for me. Jokes are slow and predictible. Jap narrator sounds like he will fall into coma in few seconds. Lack of any continuity makes any drama worthless and tensionless. Who cares If someone dies, who cares If they have a fight... It has no meaning. That antagonist also feels kinda pointless, during first 4 episodes if he weren't there nothing would change. He feels like a filler, unfunny joke that is shoved into the story. Make a story around him, not just shove it because fuck you.
I like characters, I like the world, I like the main idea, I like some animation. Too bad script and direction is just a pile of shit. Certainly not the worst show, but the wasted potential is kinda depressing

>>
>>101084069

I love people like you who complain about wasted potential when we're not even five episodes in. Truly the product of the instant entertainment society of today.
>>
>>101084299
True. I guess it was stupid to ask when everyone knows Americans sound like crap.
>>
>>101084302
>when we're not even five episodes in
We're 25% in to the show, though.
>>
>>101084302
I wasted 80 minutes for that show. It's enough for me to be annoyed and dissapointed. Also there are no reasons to think that any of my problems will be resolved.
They can't suddenly start making fast and snappy jokes. The can't suddenly change narrator. They can try to add a plot, but I doubt because changing format mid season usually doesn't work.

If you really think that I need to watch whole season before I can critique you are moron.

I find it interesting that when there is a show that has a certain level of hype, some people have an amazing desire to go out of their way and mention how dissatisfied they are with it. I mean there's nothing wrong with this as this place IS for discussing anime, but it feels like these people are looking specifically for others who disliked the show rather than actually wanting discussion. I say this because it feels like its their way of "coming to terms with" for a lack of better words, the let down of the hype. This doesn't apply to everyone, but it does seem to happen with the more hyped shows of a season with posters joy almost oozing out of their posts at finding others who have the same reason for disliking a show.

There's plenty of decent discussion here so long as you don't respond to obvious shitposting and don't get mad that holy shit what do you know, some people like and dislike shows that you don't and may be talking about it in a given thread. I just notice it seems to be a common way for people to deal with hype that didn't meet their expectations.
>>
>>101083947
On Toonami they replace it with generic funky jazz like it's Austin Powers or something
>>
So tell me if I'm wrong here. Dandy did something in the first episode with the broken warp drive. That allows for the fact that all these episodes have been parallel realities. So when he dies in one it's ok. Because there are still more Dandies out there in other realities.
>>
>>101088530
The key is the reference to "Everett" in the ED, which is a reference to Hugh Everett III, who developed the Many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics.
>>
>>101088530
And in the last episode he spammed the hell out of the button. Who knows what the fuck that did.

The so-called "broken" warp drive is clearly the key to the multiverse.

However, I like it just as a plot device that turns the standard trope of the happy-go-lucky hero always winning at the end of every episode on its head.

I love how every complaint about Space Dandy is about something external to the show, but never the show itself. "It's not what I expected, it's not like cowboy bebop, it doesn't meet my hype, I want a plot and continuity, I want it to match my own idea of how it should be, and so on"

In other words, the problem is with the viewer and not the show. But that's what /a/ does, they take their own deficiency as human beings, and project it onto what they're watching. It's a characteristic of depressed and low self-esteem people though so that should not be surprising.
