So is there like no continuity in this show?
Dat ass doe
It's one of those shows that makes no sense at first and there seems to be no continuity at all but then at the end they surprise you by explaining everything and there is suddenly a plot that was hidden all the time and we didn't even notice and now all makes sense
But they died the first episode. And then Mew died last week.
Will they ever tell us why the Gogol Empire wants him dead?
if we can trust the ED, every episode takes place in a parallel universe
and the week before that
Yeah, apparently. I thought it might have just been a one time gag in the first episode but it seems like every episode is going to end in a similar way
There is no continuity. Just Space Dandy. He is a dandy in space.
UCHUU NO DANDII DE ARU
They'll pull it all together near the end of the first half I imagine.
I don't think they can keep this up for 26 episodes.
This. Apparently it's because of the string Dandy pulled in the first episode, they really are dying in these parallel universes.
>people hate this show because it isn't serious drama like bebop and champloo
sometimes a show is just supposed to be silly and fun
I hope not. The individual episodes have been fun, but I really hope that the whole show isn't 26 episodes of zany antics with no context.
they're mad because they're getting what they aren't used to
i guess i understand because i didn't like kill la kill at first because as a fan of imaishi, i expected a fun show like space dandy but instead i got what was seemingly a boring shonen but it's getting way better
The show is not bad, its fermenting.
It's like a parasite, shit at first, shit at midway and eventually everything will be so shit that the only thing that is known to mankind as acceptable is this shit.
I am betting the parallel universes branch off from the broken warpdrive, and that this somehow plays into why the Gogol Empire wants him dead.
Although, they may just want him dead for being the best dandy, or groping a princess. Those both sound like good reasons.
Clearly there is considering Meow wasn't part of the crew at the start of ep 1. Also, ep 2 started with Dandy trying to turn him in for money.
That or Dandy is some strange time/space anomaly to begin with.
Did people miss the stoned zombie episode? Or the gay baseball?
when is Scarlet going to join the crew
OP here, I'm not hating it, I just really hope that there is more to it than just wacky adventures. Like there is some overarching plot
>yfw one ep has hundreds of dandys, meows, and qts converging on a single point to fix some bullshit plot device and they all die
When they stop dying
>gogol galaxy steet view
Its funny because "gogol" sounds like google.
Read a book
>not getting the joke
You can break down any joke like that
Each episode should be an alternate reality which was one step "more successful" than the last. Basically, the final episode should be a universe where all 3 crew members are fine because they managed to successfully survive/defeat/escape etc each trial without any of the 3 dying. The final episode would probably cover the furthest-making offshoot.
>thinking Space Dandy is funny and just stupid
There is Op. It continues ....to be awesome
What exactly are they doing with the new aliens?
They just head off on a conveyor belt to who knows where.
Dogs don't have thumbs
And Betelgeusians are space cats.
inb4 tatami galaxy end.
It's different timelines.
The Dandy's keep dying in different dimensions. I swear to god eventually there's going to be a Dandy convention at boobies.
The ED is extraordinarily blatant.
>All these people with these alternate line theories
You guys are dumb. It's just a comedy show. It doesn't need continuation. You don't need to justify it with some stupid theory.
Fuck off m8
It's all foreshadowed by the Etsuko Yakushimaru ED.
>same VA as OZU
>same VA as Jougasaki
>ED by the same person
The Director must have liked The tatami galaxy a lot.
I fuckin hate Meow's crocs but at the same time I love the design.
yea that sounds cool. episode 2 takes place in a universe where they survived the encounter in episode 1. episode 4 is a universe where they surivived episode 1 and then managed to save meow from the titmonster etc. ep 5 they managed to avoid getting bitten by the zombie alien but meet some other unfortunate end etc.
ep25/26 could play out the successful scenarios of every preceding episode in order
Who the fuck are you
If SD continues the way I think it will then it looks like it was inspired a lot by it.
How can I learn to dance like Dandy?
It took you four episodes to figure that out.
I agree with the spirit of what you just said, but still, when you tear a hole in spacetime in the first episode, it's hardly a particularly deep speculation to suppose that has something to do with continuity contradicting itself.
It's just a silly anime, but the creators of the show may have intentionally though to themselves "hey, it's a space adventure, why not just tear a hole in reality, that'll let us be as crazy as we want!" They didn't NEED to do that, but if that's what they did then we might as well enjoy that they put the thought into that.
But yes, people who get any MORE deep into it than "hole in spacetime therefore who cares" are taking it too seriously.
When Dandy warped in the first episode didn't he divide himself into plenty of Dandy's?
Would it be too weird to assume that it cloned Dandy and that there's a bunch of Dandys in plenty of dimensions?
This is literally the first time i've ever heard someone refer to Samurai Champloo as "Sam Cham".
I blame SamFlam
He's dead though.
This episode didn't feel right to me. It felt really insubstantial, with the excessive narration and how it petered off at the end. Also the animation in the hospital fight was shit.
>not getting the joke
meow looked just strange in the last 2 episodes. His head is fucking huge and a bit too round andf generally just scaled really weird in many scenes. His cuteness went down like 20-30%. He better be cute again soon
The only continuity is that there is a dandy guy, in space.
Multiverses. The ending says it.
Dandy somehow knows how to jump on another timelines and that's why the google empire wants him.
This was like sub-Newgrounds-tier
It really bugged the hell out of me.
I want to catch up with this show, I only watched the first episode dubbed. What should I watch, the dub or the sub?
Get Commie's releases and watch their sub, then watch it again with the dub (also in the same file). I've tried dub=>sub, but it works better the other way. Also, if you're only watching one (which you shouldn't) use the sub.
And its STILL better than that shit Kill La Kill fags call animation
Why do people have to bring Kill la Kill into everything? Just stop.
No. Kill la Kill does have shit animation at times, and mediocre animation overall (Trigger has no budget and is doing the best they can to make the overall product be the least horrible by conserving animation whenever possible), this span of only about ten seconds was worse than anything Kill la Kill has done.
How long until full ED?
It looks like shit.
Confirmed better animation than Space Dandy:
I think you're greentexting wrong.
You gotta admit the baseball episode was the worst episode or rather its timing was off. Just stating facts here people no need to get your panties in a bunch. If that episode had come earlier I would've been fine with it but it came just before the big finale. It seemed like they were trying very hard to make the show longer. I guess the episode isnt bad but the timing of the episode is what I didnt like about it. It took me away from the story. Its like they were saying "hey watch this goofy baseball episode now just before all this big emotional stuff thats going to happen" the fuck where they thinking?
Don't pretend you didn't love it.
Here's one of the few times when someone bothers.
>not realizing that every episode we've seen is actually a parallel dimension triggered by the malfunctioning warp drive use in episode 1
>muh head canon
Is this basically Futurama anime?
No. It's basically Johnny Bravo the anime. But in space.
Pulling that cosmic string and the wonky warp drive should clue you in that these are different universes.
How retarded is it that his name is literally Space Dandy? That's not a person's name.
>Not naming your son Space
Your first time watching episodic series?
>Meanwhile every other character in anime is named Honda Suzuki or Sakura Mitsubishi
meant to reply to>>101130763
Any fanart of the nurses?
its the future homes
who knows what people's names will be
His first name is fucking Space. In the future that's probably even more stupid. It'd be like naming your kid Air or Dirt.
or snow white
Or Cloud or Red. Fucking elevens and their names.
It's bugging me. I need to know the song they're using in the commercial for episode 5. It sounds amazing. There's no general discussion for the show so I'm posting here.
I can't find it. It's part of the problem.
"Rocket ship" by super x-13
Can you be more obviously /co/?
>the song they're using
Obviously it's just some song on the OST like how this was for Evangelion: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WTWPSLVKHw (not that you'd recognize it)
It's called a "next episode preview" or just a "preview"
>There's no general discussion for the show
Why would there be? This thread is about Space Dandy, so we're talking about Space Dandy.
This is the general discussion for the show, since all discussions are general discussions.
Your use of "general" here really tips you off.
Fuck off or lurk moar.
Can't you just go to the episode and skip ahead to the preview?
You know what's worse? Super Sonico.
>Obviously it's just some song on the OST like how this was for Evangelion
No shit, I'd like to know the title.
>It's called a "next episode preview" or just a "preview"
No it's not, because that's not what I'm talking about. The song playing during the current commercial played on adult swim.
Thank you very much.
>they still have that song at the end of rebuild
my sides have left this plane
Googling the lyrics gives me nothing and there's no result for Super X 13 on what.cd.
To be fair, he probably actually means the commercial. Space Dandy is airing on television, remember? Also the song could have very easily been something Toonami put to the commercial that is unrelated to the show. They show random music videos and play non-anime related songs all the time. If either of these were the case, someone could know the title.
That's because they had no label, it was a self produced album in 1998 called "Ain't life grand". Unless >>101131382 this fag is right and it plays in the episode we will never hear the full version.
Bye is their a Japanese preview for ep 5?
Agreed! I might be pushing it with this speculation but may be Gogol wants Dandy dead due to his ability to travel/exist in multiverse?
Well that's what people do in Japan.
Well call it the Toonami or Adult Swim commercial then.
Maybe it follows jap naming convention and his last name is Space, first name Dandy?
Nobody seemed to have a problem with the context but you. Ironic considering we are on a board about shows that are (mostly) in Japanese, which is a language all about context. Perhaps you should lurk moar before you start trying to fit in by calling people out.
What context? I don't watch it on TV, so I wouldn't know.
Zombie Dandy was uniformly great though, and if I had to choose, I'd rather the money go into undead toothbrush time.
what does it mean?
What does what mean?
I watched the first two eps in engrish and the last 2 in nip and I cant believe im saying thing but
I enjoy the dub more, I cant put my finger on it
one thing thats certain
DUB QT>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>SUB QT
Welcome to western animation.
That's blatantly wrong. The Japanese voice for QT is much cuter.
QT's Japanese voice is the cutest voice I've heard this season.
The second cutest is Venera-sama.
Isn't the full ED supposed to come out today?
>Just stating facts here people no need to get your panties in a bunch.
Really now faggot, if you're stating opinions don't call them facts.
>not a dandy guy in the space
How can one man have so much shit taste?
Exactly. Dub QT is just generic robot. Sub QT is adorable robot waifu.
>mfw I remembered who the fuck was Everett
easy game, easy game
