For all the uninspired rubbish that each season seems to be permeated by, Space Dandy represents a glimmer of hope. It may not have a great story or well-developed characters, and while the excessive fanservice can feel a bit immature, it is one of very few anime that dare to be different from the usual harem or action series. It also happens to be a whole load of fun... provided you don't mind seeing T&A every sixty seconds.

Space Dandy is perhaps most recognisable for being Shinichiro Watanabe's most recent project. There is a noticeable Cowboy Bebop influence here, but at the same time it read more

Space Dandy has been described as a sort of testing ground for directors - a large number of different directors, most of whom are accomplished, have been called in to create their own episodes utilizing the flexible setting of the show, resulting in Space Dandy being the most creative show I have seen at its peaks. Unfourtunately, in every experiment there is bound to be a few failures, and this is undoubtedly not a very consistent series.

Both protagonists that sound quite different are laid-back, bounty-hunters, walk around with their hands in their pockets, and the directing and screenplay are by the same guy. I prefer Cowboy Bebop though.

Both take place in space. Spike and Space Dandy also kind of look alike.
Both of these have similar character designs and overall atmosphere to them. They both know not to take themselves too seriously and manage to both be extremely entertaining. Basically it's Redline without cars and in SPACE.
