Just watched all 6 episodes of Space Dandy.

Holy shit, it truly is the best anime this season.

Why does everyone on this board resort to superlatives whenever they have an opinion? It's a good show. You know what else is a good show? Kill la Kill. "BUT WHICH IS BETTER?" Who gives a fuck, enjoy your anime.

Episode 5 was truly an enjoying watch. I can't wait til they continue this particular storyline.

Also, the music is impeccable. The track that goes on when he is looking for info on the girl's dad set the atmosphere so well.

He looks like JP from redline.

She'll return later in the show as a bodacious chick right? RIGHT?

First two episodes were pretty mediocre. The fact that the ship exploded at the end of the first episode and it was completely irrelevant at the beginning of the next episode kind of gives me the feeling of what kind of show this is gonna be.

I'm still debating whether or not to give it that customary three-episode trial, because so far I'm super unimpressed. If this is the best the anti-moe brigade can come up with, they only market they're going to effect is the Adult Swim audience.

>>102049194
Technically, episode 2, 5, and 6 could all take place in the same universe, because no one dies at the end.

One fan theory is that the episodes where Dandy doesn't die are the "prime" universe and this will come into play at some point.

See, thought it was interesting for a show like this to be free of the constraints of an overarching narrative. On one hand, it allows them to focus on each episode individually and just make them as fun and as ridiculous as possible. On the other, it typically means a show is going to seriously be lacking in substance.

I wasn't sold.

But episode 5 caught me off-guard. It's surprisingly sentimental and heartfelt in a way that really shows off the range of tone the creators are capable of establishing. Ultimately this is what hooked me, because I want to see what else they'll try to pull off.

Which it their target audience, so there's nothing wrong with that. Just please stop deluding yourself that it's a series that any regular, not /co/ tier /a/non would care about.

Maybe if that little girl was a main character, she could have saved the series, but really aside from one nice episode, SD is nothing amazing. And it's coming from someone who finds it still just okay enough to follow.

There's just no real substance to the show. Not good, not bad, just... not much to it.

It's flashy colors and toilet humor for 20 minutes. There's nothing wrong with that... but that's what it is. I guess it's good enough to spend 20 minutes on once a week.

Usually only because there's no reference to the original most of the time. We can watch both versions of the show with a click of a button in comparison.

really? I think is ok, not great and not the best voice acting from this season (that is KLK) but much more enjoyable than the english version.
it maybe be the fact that the characters are kinda stupid and annoying tho.

>>102059205
English voice actors are good in video games because that is what they do, nobody in the west cares about animation so that is why it sucks so hard. Also when you dub you have to change the dialogue to match the mouth animations even if it sounds awkward, so cartoons won't even sound natural unless the translator is also a good writer.

Swooping into this conversation to say WCW is indeed shit. Putrid shit, in fact. Main characters may as well be a pair of rocks, plot's generic as Hell, etc etc. Well, I'm not in the mood to list all its problems but it's certainly a bad series. People tend to like it since Kagari is amusing/hot and they self insert as that faggot MC.

Episode 6 and 4 were better (and far more original) than episode 5.

Seems you dont actually watch the show either from the rest of your complaints
>>
>>102061472
this season is solid
>>
>>102061473
She can be amusing because she's dull despite things that happen around her. She does have a personality, though I really hesitate to even commit to calling it that. She's basically just obsessed with the MC and always has been, that's her deal. Otherwise, she is the "perfect girl" type character you see everywhere except she's stoic as fuck and dotes on the MC without a single crack in the expression on her horrible horrible manface.

And you're right that I didn't watch the show but I have a hard time believing it would bring anything better to the table than the source material I spent several chapters on did. About the only interesting thing about the series in the end was the villains, nothing else begged for further reading. It was basically 80% garbage with almost pretty art.
>>
>>102061662
I'm glad someone else finally thinks WCW is garbage.

>>102061849

>>102061662
>. Otherwise, she is the "perfect girl" type character
The prefect girl type wouldnt be as aggressive as she is.

The whole series plays off her as straight man who can get crazy at times when the story demands it.

The villains while being Immensely fun aren't really the only thing that makes the series good. The relationship he has with his sister is comical and his mother personality is also funny. The best thing about this series is the fact that no one seems to have common sense and that plays perfectly with the how the atmosphere is and how the characters are written

>>102061924
She never "gets crazy", she has a perpetual firm visage and you can only really tell how she feels through her actions which range from "nothing significant" to "doting on whatshisface" to "kicking ass expressionlessly".

As for the sister, while I do like her as a character I soon came to realize that she was nothing new and brought nothing interesting herself. Just another unreasonably weird imouto who for some reason wants her brother's cock. Actually, it made me mad looking back on it because whatshisface is so fucking unremarkable I can't stand it. They even remind you at the start of every chapter. "I'M AN AVERAGE HIGH SCHOOLER", fuck off.

Which is ANOTHER problem I have with the series, since Kagari's lust and devotion makes no fucking sense. And like I said I have several more issues with it, but I don't want to write an essay.

Also your samefag detector needs work.

>As for the sister, while I do like her as a character I soon came to realize that she was nothing new and brought nothing interesting herself. Just another unreasonably weird imouto who for some reason wants her brother's cock.
Except you're wrong she doesnt want his cock. She thinks incest is nasty,it was even said in one of the chapters she doesnt wanna have sex with him. The thing that makes it comical is she is just a sister who's overly attached to him and cant let go and it plays with the story perfectly.

>Actually, it made me mad looking back on it because whatshisface is so fucking unremarkable I can't stand it.
She grew up with him and bonded over a loong period of time. You dont have to be remarkable for that to happen. As for kagari its the same thing,she's always had to watch him, it is possible she developed feelings for him that way.

Are you sure you read it? All of this is pretty obvious

>Except you're wrong she doesnt want his cock. She thinks incest is nasty,it was even said in one of the chapters she doesnt wanna have sex with him.
Yes, because I haven't read and watched a thousand stories where a sibling's words sharply contradict their actions. Huh. I guess I should take everything at face value and ignore her clingyness and obvious obsession and just write it off as wacky nonsense rather than typical harem shit in a very typical series.

Also you're missing the point on Kagari. She never changes her expression, that's the point. She's the "cool even when she's 'losing it'" type and it's retarded.

And no it's not that fucking simple, humans need more than growing up with one another to hold proper reverence and affection. You can grow up with siblings and hate them, love them, or completely disregard them but it all depends on what kind of person they are and whathisface is, and I quote, "an average high schooler". And for damn sure he actually backs up his words with action, he is a fucking dullard.

And don't fucking patronize me just because you're a steadfast WCW apologist. I *gave* this series a change, far longer than it deserved, and when I had enough of its bullshit I said fuck it. I am not careless in what I stick to and what I drop, and I'm also a careful reader. There's no subtlety or creativity in this series, it's just another generic IP on the generic pile, except this one has a princess but he's a guy!
>>
>>102062730
>Yes, because I haven't read and watched a thousand stories where a sibling's words sharply contradict their actions
Her actions haven't contradicted her action. They used to sleep and take baths together. If she wanted to make a move she would have done it. You should probably read and watch the show. Also in no way is this a harem. Now i know your talking out your ass


>And no it's not that fucking simple, humans need more than growing up with one another to hold proper reverence and affection.
They share experiences and memories and while growing up in the story. With the way the mother is you can tell Takamiya was always taking care of his sister.

>And don't fucking patronize me just because you're a steadfast WCW apologist.
What would that make you? A shitposter who clearly hasnt read or seen it?
I have nothing to apologize for, I'm just explaining the basics of the story to you.

> careful reader
Clearly not if you think this is a harem and let the simplest of things go past your head in this very straightfoward series.
