I dare say... You know what? I don't even dare say. This WAS the best single episode of any anime this season.
>That fucking background music
Great change of pace for the show.
Your not alone OP it was a very good episode. Even the japs agree. It had a nice pre-order boost after it aired yesterday.
It was a Cowboy Bebop episode not a Space Dandy Episode. It was just an attempt at reliving the glory days; prove me wrong.
HanaKana does it again
>It was a Cowboy Bebop episode
Nuthin wrong with that.
But this was its best episode yet.
The burden of proof is on you.
>tfw no space daughteru to travel the universe with.
I'm not arguing that. Just that the tone, the format of the story, pretty much even all the dialogue and interactions were clearly written for Cowboy Bebop and not this show. The only thing you need to do is change the line about "Boobies" with Spike going off to get drunk or something, and make the Gentoo girl into someone with a bounty on her head.
I still dont understand why she paid for an adult ticket, is she older then she looks?
She's tsundere. That's all you need to know.
Yes. And then what? You wanna bash this show? Wanna complain? What is the purpose of your statement?
Yeah, Okouchi strikes again.
Neither. I was just making a statement.
You've been on /a/ for too long, anon.
>one episode character
>people throw fits how great it was
Could you fuck off already with that fake episode?
Get a rise of you.
And your saying one episode in any other anime couldnt do the same thing?
Too bad we won't see any continuity and nothing in this episode would really matter.
That was a pretty good episode.
You don't really have to think up a good and consistent character if you're not gonna use her just for one episode.
>boohoo my favourite anime can't be this good in one episode
>better bash other shows
Except it wasn't good.
I think the end of the episode foreshadowed that we're gonna get to see here again
>being in denial
Nothing that happens in this entire anime matter, why you even watch it then?
More like it feels sad to know that the girl may not even get to meet Dandy and grandfather in the the next episode's universe.
She will still live by herself, all alone.
when you think about it, she will never meet her gramps or dandy in any other episode other than this one
See? Things like this is why not having a continuity can be a bitch.
We dont know that yet for sure, its only a theory.. right?
This one didn't end badly, there's a chance it didn't reset the continuity.
>suddenly everyone loves Space Dandy
Be more predictable, otaku.
Agreed, but it also ruined the rest of the series for me. Why can't she join the crew like Meow did?
Capcha: avsimati shipwreck
Is there proof that effects from positive outcomes in previous episodes can be seen in the next episodes?
Dandy x Adelié bodyswitched rape doujin when?
I think what actually made this episode good was I expected Dandy to do something asinine. Like maybe he was getting her grandfather so he could turn them both in and double his money or something (although I don't think that's how it works).
Dandy didn't really have a single Jonhy Bravo moment the whole episode, which completely threw me for a loop.
Most people think Dandy is like Johnny Bravo but he's actually more like Lupin from Cagliostro
>implying only otakus like the "little girl/tough dude with a soft side" dynamic.
He's actually Rance in space.
I don't remember Lupin being incapable of landing a hit or doing dumb shit like throwing his weapon away accidentally while trying to make a cool pose.
You have clearly misread him as a character. I suppose the first four episodes where suppose to make us think dandys a douchey guy. And this episode aimed to destroy that idea.
Super x-13 rocketship.
The rest of the song isn't that great
It happened quite a bit in the pink jacket series.
>"Im going to Boobies, go sleep alone brat"
>actually searching her grandfather whole night
Dandy is tsundere
No, he's dandydere.
but it's not a bitch though, i like how it's new people every episode
He's just dandy. I don't understand why this show keeps getting better. It's like they wrote all the episodes and then arranged them in order of suck so that the worst one goes first and then they get better.
>muh overused cliché
Fuck your shit, most boring episode so far.
The yellow isn't even a cute color for a penguin.
I like having new people every episode too, just not at the expense of the old ones.
Cool bullshit /b/ro
>It was not funny whatsoever
>Dandy is even more generic as I thought
>loli was fucking shit
ALL DAT LOW STANDARDS
unlimited bait works
It was really good. To say it WAS the best episode this season may be a bit much, we don't know what the future holds, maybe Dandy will surprise us more.
Top tier episode, I don't care if it was cliche. I hope she comes back. I'm going to watch it in english now.
>ALL DAT SHIT TASTES
Don't you need to shitpost in one of the endless Madoka circlejerk threads.
There is something about Zombified Meow that makes me crack up with laughter whenever I see him
>still pushing it
I swear people come /a/ just to shitpost
We've had two unique-ish episodes in a row, at least in terms of tone, and I'm not sure if I'm ready to go back to shenanigans in the next episode. Anyone else agree?
I hope there's a timeskip or Dandy time travels to the future somehow, and then he sees a grown up Adelié with a big bust and curvy ass, and she wants the Dandy
Alien hunters so sure they've lost him, convinced that penguins cannot fly and there's no way he could catch up with them. Little did they know, that whenever Dandy wants to do something, he simply does it.
Anybody else watching the dub?
Actually, they shouldn't do too many of these kind of episodes. I for once am ready for more dandy's bizarre adventure.
/r/ Soundcloud link of the soundtrack in the episode?
I think they can deliver something of more depth even in shenanigans. Just like the second episode.
Yes, but only because I'm impatient and Funimation is shit.
Rewatched the sub version for HanaKana goodness though
Zombie Meow is my husbando
She meets one of the other Dandy somehow and he captures her and turns her over to the registration in the cruelest ways possible.
I would watch the dub, but I don't have cable and commie takes too long.
There are plenty rips on nyaa
>all of these sexualizing
Adelie is daughteru tier, lewd thoughts are prohibited.
That was a good episode, hit me in the nostalgic. If you don't like old cliches then you'll probably found it boring though.
Streams Dandy as it's airing on the East Coast, live.
It's the exact same bullshit
I wouldn't call it cliche. That would mean it was dull and boring, which it wasn't.
"Old fashioned" would probably be a better term.
I fucking loved it , even got a tear in my eye because of how beautiful it was
I just caught up to Space Dandy today and really enjoying it so far, last episode was easily my favourite though, I want Adelie to come back at some point so Dandy can go on alien hunting adventures together with his daughteru.
You now realize that in the previous ep, she turned into a zombie since everyone became zombies.
It's the feng shui episode, right?
That's okay. Zombies are cool people.
Ha. He'd totally fuck her if she filled out.
>/co/ hated the girl with a passion
Like anyone gives a shit about them.
>tfw you just saw an actually good episode of Space Dandy
:_; fuck man
Its too bad we're never going to see her again
>caring about /co/
Im currently waiting for a THE LAST OF US shop with Adiele and Dandy where it says THE DANDY OF US.
We need more pomp Adelie.
Yeah, I'm gonna need some proof on that one.
Different tone entirely.
The achieve shows that the people who watched it live liked it.
If anything you are talking about tumblr whores.
She was just a cute zombie doing cute things.
But, no they didn't. Why do you lie? Why do people believe you?
I'm watching the dub. I missed episode 4, though, so I'll probably watch it subbed.
I liked her English voice actor.
Well, I've seen plenty of people saying cliches in a good way, not sure whether they meant it as "bad but I like it" or not.
But I agreed, I just chose cliche because I couldn't come up with a better term.
... i'd watch 24 episodes of that.
Well, Meow joined the Aloha-E permanently.
>Short-lived thread where everyone calls OP a cunt
Are you even trying?
I've already seen 15 episodes of that, even if she wasn't the best girl of the show
4 was hilarious dubbed. I would recommend at least downloading a dual audio from commie and giving it a try.
I like old cliches much more than old jokes, and I'm a sucker for stories about an adult travelling with a child. Best dandy episode so far, don't think next ones will top it.
That's good to know. I feel like the jokes in the dub get better with each episode, or maybe I'm getting more used to the humor.
I was hoping she would join the crew and add a bit more of a dynamic between the characters but sadly it appears they don't want any kind of continuity. Still, it was nice episode.
Do you guys remember that great episode in Level E?
She'll probably reappear in the final episode in her true adult form.
And QT will probably also become a cute curvalicous robot girl.
And while we're at it, I want world peace.
Can Meow get a happy ending, too?
She's gone anon. They'll be no references to her either.
Only if he becomes a cute curvalicous space cat girl.
Was some of the stuff with them on the train earlier on in the episode a Galaxy Express 999 reference?
Yes. Didn't you see the weapons the bad dudes were using too?
I didn't pay attention to them, what were they?
Oh watch out he's gonna cry
Best episode of the season was Tonari no seki kun OVA.
Wait, I got it myself
Holy shit that's awesome
>...and then I'll hunt you down
Tsundere space alien loli KanaHana, now that's something i can get behind.
Her species matures at a much faster rate. She will be back in her adult form before the end of the series.
>Space Dandy continues as normal, having goofy episodes that progressively get better for a few weeks
>Maybe another emotional episode or two, building Dandy's character and background
>First episode aired during Spring, Adelie comes back and goes on Dandy adventures with the crew for the remainder of the show.
I would fucking love it
Doujins of an adult Adélie hunting down Dandy and raping him when
Only if she is full Yandere.
We're dealing with Watanabe here. The crew will split up in the last 2 episodes
I saw Okouchi's name at the credits and I was like "Motherfucker, you always fucking get me"
2: No ramen
4: Died immediately
5: No screentime
I got chills when dandy went to track down her grandpa.
Can't wait for loli to grow up and become part of the crew.
Completely arbitrarily too.
BUT HOW DID THEY GET THEIR SHIP OUT OF IMPOUND?
Meow and QT died on that bench
I didn't care for this episode too much. I saw the ending coming 4 minutes into the episode, they became friends way too fast in just on lazy montage, the loli wasn't a very interesting character outside of her power and yet as I expected everyone is clambering for her to join the crew anyway, and having Dandy get no reward left a bad taste in my mouth. Why couldn't she just go to the registration center anyway?
You're so special for disliking something most people liked, good job.
>something most people liked
Most people don't like anime. It's for children.
You're so special for thinking somebody isn't allowed to state their opinion just because you don't agree with it.
It's implied that the registration center isn't exactly a good place to be.
And it sounds like you don't even know who wrote the episode.
>It's implied that the registration center isn't exactly a good place to be.
He actually made points supported by evidence. I liked the episode, but I can see why some people don't. Don't be so quick to slap the "he doesn't agree with me he must be shitposting" label on it
I think the fact they shoot out disapproved subjects into the vacuum of space is a good indication.
Well, apparently it doesn't kill them or do any sort of damage.
Being meow is suffering
>they became friends way too fast in just on lazy montage
They had 24 minutes total for the entire episode, what the fuck did you expect?
>the loli wasn't a very interesting character outside of her power
What would you have liked her to be? She behaved like a little girl because she was a little girl.
>and yet as I expected everyone is clambering for her to join the crew anyway
Yeah you're so superior to us oh mighty loli haters.
>and having Dandy get no reward left a bad taste in my mouth.
He got Adelie's eternal love and admiration as a reward, that's something.
>Why couldn't she just go to the registration center anyway?
Is this a serious question?
I can sum up your whole post into 2 words: "Who cares?"
Don't the aliens that are put into the registration scanner die/become imprisoned forever?
Even if you take the slapstick shit seriously the fact of the matter is that they're discarded like trash and left to float in space for who the fuck knows how long.
This is totally speculation, but I'd wager unidentified species are subject to testing which may or may not be pleasant.
No? If that was true then I think Meow would've raised a bit of a fuss when pushed into the scanner. Plus it was never even implied anywhere.
I can sum up your existence with one: "shit"
Simmer down, children.
Oh yeah, that's a good point.
I guess going all the way to the registration center is a bit of a hassle, plus it would seem kind of messed up that someone straight up kidnapped you and is making money off of your expense.
You're easily moved by textbook-stolen examples of adult-child bonding stories. Good for you.
Meow is an idiot, if the rejects get ejected into space to die a miserable death, you can infer it may not be rosy for those that are admitted, most scientists dissect new species.
>you have feelings and emotions, good for you
Why thank you.
and I can sum up yours in 3 letters: IRC
>They had 24 minutes total for the entire episode, what the fuck did you expect?
If only there were a way to alleviate the limitations of a 24-minute time block.
You can only see the same story so many times before it loses its effectiveness.
I picked this up because of this post.
Woah, all this MADness.
Same. When I saw the montage all I could think about is how lazy and manipulative they were being.
Buddy, it's 2014. There are no original stories. Everything is a remix of a remix
>I saw the ending coming 4 minutes into the episode
I figured out the entire episode from just the 30 second English preview.
Strange, I thought it was the most boring episode yet, aside from the last 5-6minutes which were great. Am I the only one?
but that was before they touched the string thingie
I only liked space penguin.
I definitely don't think it was the best episode, but it still maintained the show's usual level of quality.
It at least had some good BGMs, I won't deny that at least.
funny that space dandy is now my favourite show this season (not counting LH), just because everything else dropped down in quality after the first episodes.
I'm not going to try and overrate this episode, but I thought it was enjoyable. Yeah, they became friends fast but the lighthearted tone of the episode at the start and their early interactions allowed that quick bond to occur for me. I liked how it showed a different side of Dandy and I enjoyed Adiele's character just enough to want to see her again. It's not some hugely heartwarming episode that tugged on my heartstrings. It barely tickled them to be honest, but it was enjoyable.
3 is still my favorite episode, but I still really liked 5 just because it made me appreciate Dandy a lot more.
He's like a japanese alien-cat version of kenny!
I think I just figured it out.
Whatever the Google empire is after Dandy for, it allows anything bad to happen.
They can even die and just end up ok the next ep.
Google wants the secret to Respawning.
>he didn't get the ED
Hugh Everett III. Every episode so far has been a parallel universe. That's why everybody is good as new every episode.
>All pony/brony threads, images, flashes, and avatars belong on /mlp/.
Space Dandy is deep
Same, but just because it was predictable doesn't mean it was bad. It was the best of an otherwise mediocre show.
>otaku automatically means "anyone who watches anime"
When is Honey joining the crew?
I'd make a crew with her
She has to get a body like this first.
>She grows up to be flat
This was a nice feel good episode.
I just hope this series won't turn grimdark by the end.
A loli will never bodyswap you with a stuffed animal to perform tricks and dancing for money from strangers
Loli is Honey
(she isn't, shut up)
If watanabe wasnt working on this bebop would have never come out your mouth. Stop
Episode was good because there was no monkey trouble or mention of dandy being the chosen one.
Will any of the episodes have a nice plot like this rather than goofing around with SEELE chasing after Dandy and failing?
I hope so.
I think that song during the traveling montage was kinda shit.
Would've been better without the lyrics.
This episode was so good I went to /a/ and posted.
(normally I only keep to /co/ and /tg/).
Hell, I may fanart it after I'm done with latest TMNT ep.
but what if she really is?
You're being too obvious
>(normally I only keep to /co/ and /tg/).
He's still a douchey guy, but he's not incapable of feeling.
That ep made him not only a funny protagonist you'd laugh at when he dies, but a sympathetic one you want to root for as well.
>girl is called adele
>carries around a penguin plush
>adele is a type of penguin
her species is actually the plush, not the alien.
Same guy as >>101461255
Went to the drawthread to satisfy my need for pomp Adelie and got this.
>dandy's bizarre adventure
Well, he's got the stupid hairstyle part down.
It was a great cowboy bebop episode for sure.
No more standard dandy stuff from now on plz.
Someone posted a pic i have in the other thread
>It was a great cowboy bebop episode
Just fucking stop
Not enough pomp.
Why would she have a pomp? She's trying to seduce dandy not scare him
>adele is a type of penguin
How did I forget that?
This episode was great, really comfy and poignant.
At first, I thought she might be a loli alien and be telling the truth about her age. However, she bitches about grown-ups and generally acts like a child. I agree with anon; she's just being tsun.
Well it felt like one. Like a better version of that one with the mob daughter.
It had nothing to do with the first or third dandy episode that were more standard cartoon boring stuff.
welcome to dandy.
The style and theme of every episode has been different so far.
>Well it felt like one
No it didnt. If watanabe were working on this that name would never cross you mind for a second,stop
>Implying the third wasnt great
gentoo penguin best penguin
I really liked it. Was it the song you didn't like, or its usage in the show?
I agree with this anon. In theory this episode had the most in common with Cowboy Bebop than the other episodes, but even then it's still next-to-nothing.
The style and tone of the show is way different. The writing, too, focused in completely different places than a Bebop episode would.
This episode got me the Cowboy Bebop filler vibes. Good stuff, good stuff.
They're pretty clearly putting more effort into the dub because of their target audience. I hate to say it, but this one is a dub essential. The sub is missing lines (the best example being when Dandy sings the boobie song walking into the hospital, while it's just silence in the sub) and some of the jokes don't get translated well. It also seems like Dandy's English VA is better suited to the role. I watched the sub and dub for all the episodes, but I'm thinking about going exclusively dub.
This episode gave me more Michiko & Hatchin vibes than Bebop, to be honest. Still a great episode.
Just what if.
And this is a big if.
What if all the episodes have continuity, they're just all out of order. That's why every episode says "To be continued". We just haven't noticed yet because we're only 5 episodes in.
>The sub is missing lines
One of the japanese animators said it was actually the opposite.
WHICH IS IT
No the animator said the dub changed a line. Nothing was removed.
How can it be removed if the Japanese version is the original version?
then we need to start seeing second halves in the next two weeks.
What's 2chan saying about this episode?
>1st level watcher
I liked ep 4 better.
But yeah it was pretty good.
Dont start this
I don't get it.
>captcha: injuni ways
Does that mean I've been rused?
But anon dubs are always superior
She's also a Gentooan and a Gentoo is a type of Penguin.
Because there's a rule that says a character can't be good if it only appears in one single episode, right?
Bets episode of Dandy by far. Best episode of anything this season? Come on.
Maybe it's not
>saying anything about Dandy
Keep telling yourself that, gaijin
They liked it a lot. They were also surprised that Dandy and the others didn't die.
It is, the japanese part get written first
it's my least favourite episode but it was still good. they needed an episode like this to draw in the pleb viewers with wrong opinions on what's valuable in entertainment.
>perfect opportunity for a Space Daddy joke
>ignored by both producers
What if the Organization lying to you about that
They're not, The dub has added lines in though. Like when dandy was going into the zombie hospital and he was signing that boobies song. I enjoyed that alot
>Fictional works aren't allowed to have more than one mood
i just want to dribble cold yellow semen over her head over and over while she weeps and begs for her dead mother
Is this picture something I should recognize?
i clicked the wrong image
that is a close up of a hidden baby face in a hamburger from the cover of a book
in the book there is a joke about baby burgers, the burgers made for babies, by babies of babies
maybe its because he looks stoned as fuck.
>Implying you didn't came from /v/ just for the shitposting
>Her species matures at a much faster rate.
People keep posting this, but I've seen no proof.
It's a theory no one is saying it as fact
I really liked that song. Mellowed me the fuck out during the episode
No it's not a theory it's wishful thinking
No its a theory. The way she was set up at the end and the fact that she's an alien seems like an obvious direction they could go into the future
Then that'd be just Dandy
No, it was just a typical sign off for a sympathetic character. The same as "I'll find you one day" or something similar. We will never see her again, or if we do, she certainly won't be grown up
You guys ready for bulge?
>it was just a typical sign off for a sympathetic character. The same as "I'll find you one day" or something similar. We will never see her again, or if we do, she certainly won't be grown up
You seem to know alot thats written in stone about the show,Do you work on it?
You guys are weird and not very nice at all.
I knew coming here was a mistake.
Oh man, I loved it when it started playing. Simple but perfect for the scene.
>dat Dandy face at the beginning, full of resolution
>he was going to go look for grandpa the whole time, they didn't pull a "oh but I want to go to Boobies... but maybe I should go look for him... but Boobies..."
Yeah I'm Watanabe. Sorry should've mentioned that
I agree with some anons earlier who said this was a very Cowboy Bebop episode and I almost kind of regret that this wasn't a part of CB's original run. Of course I can use my imagination but I've been doing that for so long now, to actually have seen this with Spike would have been just ugh.
Spike was the first character who I self inserted as the little girl with during Bebop's second run on AdultSwim so I was probably ... 11? It wasn't even sexual at the time, I just liked to imagine him grudgingly taking care of me and being hard on me despite actually caring quite a bit. I think if this episode had actually been a part of Bebop back then my genitals would have imploded and I'd really be a girl now. Its just a kind of nostalgia-y heartache sort of thing, I guess. Spike wasn't even my husbando or anything like that, I just really liked the idea of him being my papa.
Sage for blogging. Dandy is good too and oh man, I nearly got whiplash from the emotional flashback to those fantasies I used to play out in my head, but he's just not Spike.
Oops, dropped my sage.
>I agree with some anons earlier who said this was a very Cowboy Bebop episode
This was not bebop,just fucking stop
I didn't say it was? It had a very Bebop-y feel to it and theres nothing wrong with that.
No-one is ready for the bulge.
>It had a very Bebop-y feel
didnt feel it
Not him, but I agree this one had a bebop feel. It even had the lazy solo harmonica going at one point
The correct term is Bebopian.
I've really been enjoying Dandy, but honestly it gets way too much praise. Like Gintama pulls very similar shit all the time and its like a 200+ episode show.
Hearthwarming story, gin acts like an asshole while actually saving the day, saves the day.
Dandy did literally the same thing.
If this were bebop the Loli would have ended the episode heart broken and alone
Certainly the best Dandy episode, I'm glad he had this kind of episode showing Dandy soft big bro side to him.
I'm sure it'll go back to being about stupid shit next week, Least we can remember this great episode.
I hope she comes back later in the show.
then fuck off to another thread mr shitposter
Yeah, nothing is new, we get it. I love how people get so defensive about Space Dandy like they feel threatened.
Next week we get Space surfing
>all these faggots watching the dub
When did /a/ become this casual?
I like the dub better, the jokes come off better.
Am I wrong or everyone here is cherry picking CB examples? It's all broken hearts and jazz but nobody seems to remember things like he supersentient mold or the gorilla warfare virus. Which, incidentally, would fit better in Space Dandy according to what people say
Why cant we watch both?
tone it down
Come on, son. At least try to be more subtle in your shitpost inciting.
Everybody just remembers the somber CB episodes
This is just Mushroom Samba the series, or thats what was pitched
Damn it, this show would become twice as good if she started traveling with them.
>This is just Mushroom Samba the series
Wrong again. Even that episode had a completely different tone than the dandy series
A 2/10 is still only a 4/10 when you double it.
>space dandy at her computer
God dammit /a/
Every single time I drop the series, you rave about how the newest episode is the best shit ever, I watch it, and then I'm just utterly let down.
Its a good thing dandy is 7/10
If you dont like it,just drop it. No one is forcing you to watch
No one gives a shit
I'm sure your mother would love to hear your opinion Timmy
>Nobody in this whole knows who the writer of this episode was
As expected of /a/. Sure is getting shittier here.
Just because it hasnt been stated in a comment does not mean that people dont know, you absolute autist.
I'm fine with not knowing. I appreciate the series on its own merits, I don't need to namedrop and prejudge an episode based solely on who's associated with it.
And so what? I liked the episode. Everybody copies everybody.
I know who it was, Why would i need to state it?
/a/ has been casual for ages.
Why does it matter retard?
First I tought they were dead. But I remembered the little girl.
He has a half a watermelon on top of his head. His head isn't split open.
yea Op was cute as Fuck.!
Yeah sure. Only if you did know that it was the same man who wrote the entire Code Geass series. Really ironic how /a/ loves this episode but find Code Geass 'edgy'
I don't understand what you mean by "edgy".
What? When has /a/ ever found Geass "edgy"? And what the fuck does that have to do with the writer, writers can write many different stories in different genres.
Is your autism flaring up or are you just a very weak "look at how retarded I am!!" troll?
Go back to /v/
>Only if you did know that it was the same man who wrote the entire Code Geass series. Really ironic how /a/ loves this episode but find Code Geass 'edgy'

>Hating the toonami promos
Really?No one but you has had a problem with them
Would you really want to take a child with you into the night? She has to sleep like 9 hours a day you know.
It fit the promo so perfectly.
No u. Everything about the episode, from the set-up to the plot twists were all pure Cowboy Bebop. I'm not saying this is a bad thing; the two shows are obviously very related, and the studio is expecting to see Space Dandy in the context of Bebop. Most of the episodes so far have highlighted the differences, whereas this one felt like it was straight out of the older show.
Again, I'm not complaining; they are both great shows. I guess I do prefer when Dandy does it's own thing, but I think everyone is in agreement that this story worked really well.
Not every post is black and white, two opposed sides screaming abuse at each other.
Space Dandy reminds me most of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and I fucking love it for it.
>Everything about the episode, from the set-up to the plot twists were all pure Cowboy Bebop
No it wasn't,You should watch more anime if you honestly think that. If this were bebop the loli would be heartbroken and alone at the end of it
> the two shows are obviously very related,
By being nothing like each other in tone and genre?
>I expected this to be the stupid adventures of the unlikeable douchebag
>I wound up getting a new reason to watch TV again
This is a better comparison that bebop
>and the studio is expecting to see Space Dandy in the context of Bebop
Source? Anything to back you up would be great
Cowboy Bebop is one of the most famous anime of all time, especially in the west, and the studio is actually targeting the same audience that liked Bebop with this Adult Swim shit. There are numerous similarities, its obvious they are retreading some old ground, but in a very very different style.
>Cowboy Bebop is one of the most famous anime of all time, especially in the west
It really isn't.
>There are numerous similarities,
You mean like their in space and have a ship? Because thats where the similarities end. Everything else from the colors,designs and tone are very different.
Please just stop. The only thing this has in common with bebop is that woolongs is the currency used ( thats a refrence ) and that watanabe is working on it
There is nothing more that it has in common with bebop
Bebop is popular in the west
Cant wait till every episode is comapared to bebop from here on out. That zombie and ramen episode were just like bebop too!
Be sure to include the name "Space Dandy" in the op so my filter catches it.
Do you want a prize?
you're still here?
dont sweat the details baby.
You should get a trip so my filter catches it.
But has Space Dandy saved anime?
No, that's up to Yamakan.
Nah, SEED Destiny did that years ago.
Its a show about a small group of lazy/inept people who spend all their time poor as they go about in a spaceship catching people, with a focus on style and humour, where the heroes are generally unlikely to win.
Tone and colour wise they are really different, I agree, and I think a lot of that comes down to the eras they are in. They are using a lot of the same material but spinning it in wildly different ways, it's interesting to watch how two shows with near-identical premises can be so different.
Stop getting so pent up. This show was explicitly advertised as being by the same minds as Cowboy Bebop. They are having a ton of fun completely subverting that
It was never its job to save anime
Several times over. Along with Kill la Kill and Wake Up Girls.
It's bebop's fault for being too much Space Dandy.
That fucking lobster
Totally space dandy ripoff
zombie episode was better
Loli brings out the best in a man and keys him be himself. That's what I liked the most. Loli is the purest thing to love.
Please go back to your Sakura Trick thread, you piece of shit.
That's without mentioning that they are both westaboo shows that have similar soundtracks, and all the direct references.
>Its a show about a small group of lazy/inept people who spend all their time poor as they go about in a spaceship catching people, with a focus on style and humour, where the heroes are generally unlikely to win.
So nothing like bebop other than space,Their ship and money problems? Okay glad we cleared that up
> They are using a lot of the same material
Like what? They have used nothing so far that resembles bebop.
>Stop getting so pent up. This show was explicitly advertised as being by the same minds as Cowboy Bebop. They are having a ton of fun completely subverting that
This show was advertised as being made by the people who ALSO CREATED SOUL EATER AND FMA. SO is space dandy like FMA and SOUL EATER? I guess it is since the promo sad it was
In the same goddamn line they use two other shows to hype its popularity. Stop you're reaching hard
>Implying you can't like Space Dandy and Sakura Trick at the same time.
Satan supports your love of children, faggot
>not knowing the difference between the director and the production studio
>Implying you can like Sakura Trick
Only direct refrence to bebop has been woolongs. Also the Soundtracks are made and composed by the same person but they each have a different them
Silhouette dancing in the OP is a reference to Spike
No i know the difference, he thinks that the show is only being advertised as "The same show made by the minds of bebop!" Which is not the case
>he doesn't think DEEN's found a way.
Frankly, I wonder if, when she's fed in her small form, she returns to the form of Mammitas, but only as tall as the monster they registered. Anyone have thoughts on this? Itty bitty titty monster
There's a refrence to cutie honey and FMA. Is dandy like those?
but Code Geass was a huge success on /a/
I told you niggers, it's just like Cowboy bebop. It starts off goofy and episodic but in the later half shit gets serious
>it's just like Cowboy bebop
Its also like Soul Eater,FMA and Cobra
would you please stop that? It's just stupid.
The director is what counts in these cases
Is this worth picking up? With pretty much every Watanabe show, I've never been able to get through more than a few episodes because of that feeling like all the effort has been put into the animation and the "cool" characters and yet someone has forgot to give it, you know, an actual plot beyond "this week's wacky misadventure. And that deliberately edgy feel - I mean, did you really have to push Fujiko's saggy tits in my face every other frame, or have Zenigata fuck her in exchange for favors in spite of that going against everything his character is about.
>implying the director also writes the episodes
He doesnt write the episodes though.
weren't we talking about style here?
You're bad at arguments
That penguin scene got me all choked up.
>the tears that pushed Dandy over the edge
Did not lift that night
Very much preferred the zombie episode.
Coming from the guy who thinks he's figured out the shows direction after one episode?
They already died 3 times. so no.
>Space Dandy reminds me most of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
I thought I was the only one. Other than the soundtrack I dont get a bebop vibe from it all. They've referenced Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy a couple of times already
meh the third was the 2nd worse imo.
I love that they're still using lazer hawk in their promos
I love the third episode alone for the Hawaii Yankee scene
MFW we /m/ now.
>that transformation scene
>WE HAVE TO USE THAT
>HOW DID I NOT KNOW WE COULD DO THAT?!?
Fuck yes, I just finished episode 3, it was fucking amazing.
Will watch 4 and 5 in a bit, just have to get some stuff done first.
But yeah, I am really liking this series, and this season has been great to me so far, I think it is the first time there are 4 anime that I actually like in one season alone.
What was the song that played during the commercial for this episode?
It was this>>101476184
Fucking toonami found a band that was so obscure no one in the internet ever bothered to post the fucking song. We had to wait the whole week for it
The caption should read
>I dont even know this Dandy
She is the one with the confused look on her face
>she will never hunt you down
Too bad it's so old and so obscure that there isn't a chance in hell you'll ever find it.
How come she didn't say that in the subs?
>tfw Wanko will never take the correct drugs and become the zombie waifu that chihiro deserves
Feels bad man.
Toonami had to post that up. Before they did that there was no youtube video of it and there was no download
Things change in translations anon.
This episode has nothing to do with Cowboy Bebop, it is more like City Hunter.
So a little girl looking for a relative can only be a copy of Cowboy bebop?
>Little girls looking for relatives was invented by bebop
This is getting ridiculous
>all these /co/tards
thread ruined, go home
You are really late and no it isnt
For some reason dandy has had actual threads with little shitposting recently, I wonder why
>, an actual plot beyond "this week's wacky misadventure. And that deliberately edgy fee|
But his shows do have plot and thats not how you used Edgy
because /a/ has already forgotten about it mostly.
people will still redirect you to space dandy threads when you shitpost and you will still see IRC baiting all the time, its been like that for klk and it will be like that for some anime in the not very distant future
>because /a/ has already forgotten about it mostly.
Speak for yourself not the entirety of a board.
You know what I love about this show most of all?
It's actually excited about Space.
Every other medium we've got is landlocked and hotglued to the Earth. Even with our big name sci-fi films of recent note have been small in scale and treat the cosmos as trivial window dressing. Regard the recent Star Trek films that are devoid of eagerness and discovery or the Gundam franchise that just uses space as a way for petty human conflicts to play out in three-dimensional battlegrounds. It's become more of a stock trope for cheap plots instead of a font of possibilities. I don't know when the fascination with the outer reaches turned into cynicism, but it seems to have hit the creative industries pretty hard if this trend is of any indication.
Perhaps most insultingly of all is the vogue of reality warpers and galactic deities that manipulate the universe to show how powerful they are; So you show us that they can toss a box around. Okay, but what's in the box? Are we going to explore any of that? No? Well, fine then.
In Space Dandy, the viewer keeps travelling to new worlds that are chock full of new aliens and cultures. It's this immense, extraterrestrial blend that feels familiar, but has enough uniqueness to make if feel fresh, a trait helped by the fact that not a lot of parties are doing stuff like this anymore.
Far from the claustrophobic, all-encompassing constraints of high-schools, cities, or planet Earth itself, Space Dandy flies high, fast, and free. You can partake in that spirit if you like; just tune in and feel the gravity on your mind fall away.
I like that so far they're bothering to show actual aliens and not filling the whole universe with humanoid looking aliens
Pay attention to the ending lyrics
Not to mention the ED is done by Etsuko Yakushimaru.
She also made the ED for Tatami Galaxy, a series that also seems episodic at first, but on the last 2 episodes it is revealed that all of those were parallel universes with an overarching plot around them.
It was pretty average as every Space Dandy episode. It doesn't outshine any of the previous stuff it resembles so it's also completely forgettable.
Along with both OPs for Mawaru Penguindrum and Arakawa Under the Bridge.
Still waiting for the official full version of Dandy's ED though.
>the official full version of Dandy's ED though.
It was already released though,wasnt it?
Isnt this it?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jeLPsGpwf9o
>It doesn't outshine any of the previous stuff it resembles
>やくしまるえつこ『X次元へようこそ』MV (Short ver.)
That's the name of the second isn't it? Welcome to the X dimension?
Now that's what I call a high budget PV.
The loong version has been released as well and is on youtube
>People liking this peisode because muh loli alien.
>Welcome to the X dimension?
Welp im glad to see its now fact that they are dimension hoping
I like the music,The Penguin fight,The tone and the styling choices
This episode felt more about Jet having a midlife crisis, since he sorta felt attracted to a 16-18 year old??
It's pathetically entry level though
And that is EXACTLY what we wanted. Thank you, Watanabe
space penguin singing about boobies, Now that was beautiful
Won't it just get taken down though? Link?
I liked it. Good change of pace.
It was nothing like Bebop.
is this some elaborate troll or is bebop the only anime you've ever watched? Well i dont think you watched bebop either since you think this epsiode was like bebop
It was ok. Episode 2 is still my favorite. I think I would've liked this episode more if it wasn't HanaKana voicing the loli. I'm getting tired of her voice everywhere. I'll see if I change my mind when I rewatch it dubbed.
I dont have a link. I know its on their because some anon posted it about a week ago
Enjoyable things are enjoyable
You'd better not be having fun while watching anime, /a/non.
Anime only exists for debates and critical thinking!
The soundtracks are not composed by the same person. Yoko Kanno's only involvement with Space Dandy is the ED arrangement.
I like it.
Captchs: disclaimer trulatn
that looks great
She's just one of a few universal constants in the multiverse.
It flashed by so quick I though his head was asploded.
Now I know better.
So is Space Dandy really as fun as you guys make it ought to be? No, I'm not asking if it's good, I'm asking it's fun.
The awkward laughter during towing was really short in the sub, what a shame
Well it worked, and after at first dropping the show based on the 1st half preview of episode 1, I realized the error of my ways.
Yes and it gets better with every episode
Yea its pretty enjoyable. I usually wouldnt say this but you should give the dub and sub a shot and see which you like better. I watch both and they both do things that the other could improve on
The jap pronunciation of english words is way more enjoyable. Hearing "baby" or "boobies" in that accent with the inflection the VA puts on it just feels plain good.
this is the best concept so far of grown up Adelie
This. I laugh so hard whenever I hear Jap QT say "boobies"
Between this and KlK all the fanservice relevant to my interests this season is spoiling me.
I'd argue that the idea that Adelie was in significant danger was a valid one. Yes, the plot's been done before, but the wildcard in it was Dandy himself.
Over the course of 4 episodes, he has:
-entertained the idea of trading QT in for a new robot assistant
-tried selling out Meow to the Alien Registration Center twice
-tried throwing Meow out into deep space twice
-has shown a tendency for outright abandoning his companions when things get hairy or when they simply slip his mind.
He's kind of a maverick dick, and that's to people that he somewhat likes.
And while you could say, "it's a little kid, the rules are different," when a show turns BABIES into zombies, then you just know the stakes can get pretty weird and are liable to subvert your expectations.
Guy looking to join the Dandy ride here.
Why are the subs 600+ mb?
HanaKana is such a slut now, she needs to extend her range too
Commie does Dual aduio for those of us who watch both of them
I'm glad Dandy's going to go barefoot next episode. The footstep sounds his awesome clogs kept making in this episode and the last one were getting aggravating.
Really? Shame. That was a pretty good bit.
Pardon my ignorance, but how many episodes will this show be?
the first episode was pretty bad. well the first 10 minutes, then I started to enjoy it
didn't really like the zombie episode past the point where they all became zombies. would have rather seen dandy become a zombie hunter.
hopefully a few years worth
i got a good laugh out of remembering those things, thanks anon
This episode would have made a great if generic movie.
>not laughing at the rediculousness of the situation drawn do far past the point of not being funny that it becomes hilarious
