What's the consensus on this show, /a/?
>>
It's shit.
>>
It's shit.

feels like it's trying too hard, honestly.

It's okay.

Garbage

It's shit.

Anime of the season.

It's fucking Dandy.

It's aimed at the duders that watch adult swim and spike tv
>>
>>101447597
It's dandy, baby.
>>
I like it. It's fun.
>>
No substance and not at all funny.
>>
Really disappointed so far. I thought this was gonna be the next Cowboy Bebop or Samurai Champloo.

Last episode was best, I really enjoyed the previous two if it keeps up I'll end up liking it.

Needs to keep it consistent though instead of shit like eating ramen and posting images on twitter.

It's shit.

It's pretty dandy

It tries too hard

>tfw we will never get another Cowboy bebop and Samurai Champloo

Only about 90% of the thread hates it, so It's probably pretty good.

There is no consensus.

I like it a lot, but the kiddies on /a/ will never appreciate it because they haven't read enough science fiction for it to make sense. They won't get much of the humor, and they'll see Watanabe Shinichirou's name and expect to see Cowboy Bebop/Samurai Champloo redux.

People with any science fiction literacy -- especially golden age sci-fi -- will likely appreciate it.

it great but doesn't cater to /a/ since the MC isn't a cute girl or an uninteresting self-insert male protag.
>>
>>101448537
Hot tips:

Reference to sci-fi is such a minor factor in the series' appeal
One can enjoy it or hate it regardless of that aspect

Watanabe's name being attached to it has zero impact on overall opinion to anyone who's opinion is worth valuing
Some retards might say they expected something but got the opposite and dislike it for this reason. Obviously disregard these

>>101448584
>being this naive
>>
meh
>>
>>101448648
Instead it caters to the Adult Swim crowd that watches Family Guy and Naruto
>>
>>101448537
Nah, the biggest reason /a/ kiddies don't like it is because of /a/'s hipster thing. The only difference between now and previous shows is that this time the dub aired before the sub, so /a/ can''t pull the whole "I liked it before it was subbed".
Well, that and the IRC brats.

>Reference to sci-fi is such a minor factor in the series' appeal
You clearly aren't a big science fiction fan, then. That's fine, but don't confuse your own motivations with general intent.

You certainly can enjoy the series without understanding the references. No one is denying that. But you will appreciate it so much more if you DO understand the references, and that's where you're wrong.

>Watanabe's name being attached to it has zero impact on overall opinion to anyone who's opinion is worth valuing
And your opinion is certainly not worth valuing.

>>101448706
Except its way better and nothing like either of those crap shows.
>>
>>101449125
Even if that were true, it airs inbetween episodes of Family Guy and Naruto so the target audience is obvious.
>>
>>101449027
Some elitist guys on /a/ aren't a consensus.
>>
>>101449157
Because the Japs spent countless hours agnoizing over which American time slot it should fit into, rather than throwing it to whoever was airing anime in the US and working from there. They wanted to see if people who buy anime in the US would bite. That's all.
>>
Honestly I don't give a shit what /a/ thinks about anything.
Some anon's like it some don't.
I for one really like it.
I even enjoy the dub more than the sub.

I want to try it but the MC looks like such a douche and I'm expecting him to be way too overplayed

That's the whole fucking point. The show is titled Space DANDY. Are you fucking dense?

I like it. I watch the dub.

Just like you.

We don't need another one. If you want Bebop and Champloo, then fucking watch Bebop and Champloo.

Why? It's not even a funny "meme" anymore. This is exactly why I avoid KlK threads, even though I am enjoying the show.
>>
I was getting bored of it around episode 4 but at 5 it actually had potential. Finally it actual had some character story and development that actually made bebop good. none just lull so randum jokes. The jokes where good but not what I enjoyed about watanabe.

It's obvious why there's less character though. it's pandering to the adult swim audience whiChat mean the feel good scenes are pointless and boring. MORE ZOMBIES AND DUMB DANDY.

all in all episode 5 best.
>>
>>101449918
I wish people would learn the difference between writing and directing.

Space Dandy is great.
People saying that it's shit are probably watching 10 generic shows at the same time, liking all of them better while they dropped Space Dandy.

Right now it's too popular for /a/ to admit they like it. Wait until the ratings tank a little, then everyone on here will start saying how much they have always liked it.


I think it's hilarious. If you don't go into it expecting another Bebop then it's a great show.
>>
>>101447597
I think it's fun and enjoyable to watch. /a/'s just a bunch of teen faggots looking for their next SHOUNENSHIT.

Haven't watched beyond the first episode.

First episode was shit

I wish Space Dandy was instead an anime adaptation of Charles Barkley's shut up and jam gaiden.

I LIKE IT

It's the series I'm putting off to watch the longest each week. I like the setting, I don't like the whole episodic structure though. I think the part I enjoy most is the OP.

It's an episodic casual show. If you're looking for plot, look elsewhere.

>>101450740
It's only episodic for the first half, like Cowboy bebop. Just wait till later for shit to get serious.

Be sure to include the name "Space Dandy" somewhere in the OP so my filter catches it.

There is no consensus. Toonami people like it because muh Cowboy Bebop, muh randomness. Everyone else dropped it.

It's awesome.
I'm happy to finally get a show where fun things are fun and not cute girls doing cute things.
>>
I wasn't sure at first, but Space Dandy is actually shaping up to be pretty good. I was convinced it was going to be a trainwreck until I realized that the ED actually foreshadows what's going to happen and that it's not just lelsorandum shit. Last episode showed that it's capable of a lot more in the meantime too.

I can understand why people would dislike it though, which really sucks because a lot of people are going to drop it before it gets good.
>>
Last episode was surprisingly and disappointingly good. Makes me wish the whole tone of the series was like that episode.

Skeptical at first but the last two episodes made me change my mind. It's fun so I'll keep watching.

It's pretty bad but as an introductory slime for normals it's alright I guess.

EP5 was really good. Took me by surprise because I've been just lazily watching it in a dull up until now. Hopefully we get more episodes like that.

And well, dub fags are the worst..

Fantastic Buck Rodgers + titties / 10.

I just look at the show as Johnny Bravo in Space, not a new Cowboy Bebop. I enjoyed Johnny Bravo as a kid, with the random episodic nature of its cartoon status, but enjoyed the episodes where there was a bit of emotion going on that had me feel sorry for Johnny or let me see his situation in a different light.

That's why I really like episode 5 of Dandy, but also enjoy the fun randomness that can happen in a colorful universe with interesting looking aliens.

So it is an okay show, but not the best anime of the year by far. Enjoy it if you like cartoony humor and breast jokes.
