THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Awesome, the real/original OP song was played.

Lol @ the dog this episode. Based on previous experiences, I originally thought it might of been an alien too. Ah the feels this episode. I guess cats (Meow) and dogs don't get along too well. Dat feels this episode ;___;

"QT" was awesome this episode. I mean, it's not QT but still.
So much Dandy service my eyes~

Awesome, they now have the OP in the dub.
Looks like we have a dog in this episode, and those two twins got me a little bit worried, and I don't see how pup is anymore unique than meow. Damn, and now pup is gone ;_; (Just when I thought that she was going to join the crew). Looks like those twins are actually fleas (Le flea xD). And Dr. Gel once again shows his poor luck in trying to capture Dandy (He's actually pretty impressive at screwing up lol)

No preview? I wonder what this might mean...

I like how Dandy care about the little pup and building up a rocket. But damn the feels though T_T

Le Flea taking over QT, oh damn, pretty powerful. Planet is being destroyed, and Dandy reminiscing those girls XD. I don't know why QT is making sarcastic tone of warping XD.

Oh shit the opening. Bout time we got this. Love the song. Good episode. Poor pup. Best dog ever. Dandy is so real. "Say what they will about me. But I can always spot a bitch." Was not expecting him to say that. Dat ass. So the monkey died. Don't care. Wonder when we'll get the ed.

I thought the OP that played before was just a shortened cut version of the OP that played tonight.

EDIT: Nvm, after checking /a/ I think its different from what we had before.

Glad they finally got the rights to the OP. Looked glorious on my TV. Loved the mix of comedy and drama in this episode.

Not a very "smooth" episode like all the past ones. Had more of a serious feel despite all the amusing twists too. Kinda weird all around

I figured it was just because they had to sacrifice some time to finally include the opening. I personally prefer the preview, but whatever~

I didn't expect the dog to suddenly die like that of all times.. it was just kind of random...
When I saw those fleas jump up Dandy, I was like "oh gawd @_@" for many reasons.

I was really hoping for the Japanese ending after I saw that they put the opening but I guess it's harder to get that though. Maybe this did distract them from doing the preview.

The first half with PUP was full of feels. It was both tear-jerking and heartwarming at the same time.

The second half was hilarious yet disappointing compared to the first half.

This is my reply on this forum, despite browsing it for years, still gotta get an avatar when i got time. Anyways, I like the show, not the best episode, but maybe, hoping at least at least- that the show may start some sort of arc. It's probably a red herring, but it would be nice. Love that they finally got the actually OP instead of those cuts from the music video( I guess, saw it somewhere) to that song. Like someone said, reminded me of that Cowboy Bebop episode.

PUPP T__________T

If only they spent the entire episode with Pupp leading to her death at the end of the episode. Then the scene with the rocket ending the episode. I would have been bawling through Toonami.

Oh gawd, the FEELS in this episode! What made me happy was the use of the original OP for the dubs. And what made me LOL is the moment the ape guy chased Dandy at the same time he was escaping a black hole!

1000/10! SPACE DANDY SHOULDN'T END AT 13!

Such a strange episode. Extremes tonals shifts and an unusual direction.

Also a shit load of cringy puns and traduction choices.

It wasn't ''bad'' but its certainly the worst episode of the serie for me. Seems like they were trying to accomplish too many things at once and ended up with not much in the end.

Glad this wasn't as sad as it could've been (reminded me of the sad futurama episode with the dog)

That first flea brother's death was pretty funny

Also Dr. Gel has no luck :p

This episode was pretty sub-par, IMO. They started with the premise of meeting a dog, having Dandy play fetch with it for a bit, but then having it inexplicably die and then trying to get an emotional response out of the probably ten minutes of screen time it got? Paying homage to Laika is cool and all, but that aspect felt too rushed to really leave an impression on me. Let's not even talk about her unexplained arrival on the planet, or how long she'd actually been there to suffer starvation or illness of whatever killed her, causing Pup to pass away hours after Dandy's arrival.

Then the fleas were a concept with potential of their own, also wasted on a pair of gags about dying like insects, paired with sudden relevance to the planet which somehow needed them to remain in existence. All in all this wasn't particularly funny, moving or memorable in any way. I really hope next week's is better.

The fridge looks like a Bebop reference to the "Toys in the Attic" episode.

QT's straight man is wonderful.

Man, this shot is great.
Aww…even the narrator was getting in on the feels.
OMG QT's EYES JUST TURNED INTO @'s.
Even microscopic aliens can't handle the pussy.
WHEN QT ATTACKS!
Not just any old flea, Le Flea!
Uh-oh, trouble is afoot.
I always wanted to die by extreme sucking!
So much to live for.
Give me some of those sick beats.
Yeah, this dub is still coming out on top.

Anyways, I like the show, not the best episode, but maybe, hoping at least at least- that the show may start some sort of arc.

Honestly, the best part about this show is seeing these silly expectations every single week.

I thought the preview looked kind of Yuasa and sure enough, the next episode director worked on Kaiba, Kick Heart, Kemonozume and Tatami Galaxy. I think I'm gonna like this one.

This episode was kind of lacking a punchline. Even death of two last members of some species was too weak to be called a back humour.

I love all these subtle references (the fridge :D), but they screwed up the otherwise great Laika reference by saying it aloud to the audience. Now I feel sad for just being underestimated. :(

Best episode for me, by far. Although I wish they would have prolonged Pup being with them instead of cutting it short to half the episode. The rocket would have been a great way to end the episode.

But the Flea brothers were hilarious, especially when one of them died from Dandy's hair gel, then the other getting smashed with Meow's foot.

There was no preview (I guess it was sacrificed for them to air the OP), so I wonder what the next episode is about.

Does anyone else feel that Meow is just a badass character who steals the spotlight whenever he appears? I just can't get enough of him and his awesome character design!
