THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Episode felt like watching Kaiba for a minute there.

The plant is cute I guess. The music felt so weird though. I thought entire episode was weird. CODE E. I did like that montage though with the plant. Dandy had his work hand out to him~

Some weird plant world they live on thanks to QT's inaccurate transportation. They seem friendly enough to let Dandy and Meow stay for awhile...

CoCamuka doesn't seem like a nice guy to everyone, but Nini saves them. Time to get Code D but the weird smell they must get through...

Oh damn that backfired a bit when he captured Code D, but the results of the plants...

Plant aliens on Planet Planta, and Dandy just so happens to be the first human there, no surprise there. Their planet is pretty strange (And the animation in this episode kind of funny as well, not if sure it was done on purpose though). I wonder what was it that they tried to put in Dandy when they caught him, and it seems like Dandy can't stop attracting girls lol.

That was fairly interesting finding out that Code D was actually a meteor that caused the life of these new generation of plants. sad to see them turn back to normal. But the style of that planet weirded me out a bit lol.

Looks like we also have a Meow-centered episode next week, can't wait

Strange OST for a strange episode.

And just like that all alone.

Looks like they are going to Meow's home planet next episode :O

If I didn't know any better, I felt like they were trying to show the scenery and ost of the episode. The plant feels though at the end. Pretty weird episode... Had a few laughs, though :D.

Dandy effectively destroyed all sentient life on a planet. Don't think it was worth it.

That was totally and completely bizarre, parts of the episode I was like "Is this really going anywhere" but decided to kinda put the plot aside and just take in the artwork and scenery for this episode as well as the OST and in the end quite enjoyed it.

This was actually a really good episode. Sure it wasn't a really humorous one (although I like the fattened foie gra bit and the QT's inability to give all the information) bit it thrived on simply the beauty of the vivid world and the melancholy you get when Dandy effectively destroys the sentience of the plants.

5/5.

Masaaki Yuasa had to of been the guest director for this episode. It felt too much like Kaiba to be a coincidence. And while not a lot happened in this episode this may of been my favorite just as an audio/visual experience.

Absolutely loved the surreal, dreamlike, Salvador Dali-esque visuals! I don't really think the scientist plant really had the right to make the decision to return to being normal plants on behalf of the whole planet considering I didn't really get the feeling that there was anything wrong with the plant civilization had anything wrong with it to the point that it needed to return to normal plant-dom

This episode was just great; a feast for the eyes and strange in the pulpiest sci-fi way possible. With every passing week my appreciation for this show grows ever more.

Yeah, hands down, the most imaginative episode thus far.

Not the best episode in my opinion, but next weeks looks great!

I did have an emotional reaction to plant people, and that's not something you can say very often!

That explains it. I had a feeling it was either Masaaki Yuasa or someone connected to him. Definitely felt like an episode straight out of Kaiba. Depressing and bizarre.

This was certainly the most unique episode of Dandy thus far and a nice change of pace.

Trippy visuals and music. Definitely reminded me of the art style of Kick Heart. Kinda pointless, though; got bored halfway through. Only funny moment was "don't get your stamen in a knot".

Just finished the episode; kinda blown away by the seemingly LSD-induced visuals and the bizarre music. However, it was fun to watch and did not see the end coming. Poor plants "goodbye human..." ow w/e she said, so sad. Probably going to have nightmares from those other plant designs though, thought Meow was being held by sheep-like creatures at first, funny they wanted to eat him, damn carnivorous plants.

This episode was strange and somehow sad to the same time. I liked it a lot.
The music, art and animation that was used in this episode was especially amazing. Will miss those plants especially the daughter.

Dandy is at its best when it doesn't go the humor route it seems. This and episode 5 are my favorites so far.

Love the experimental nature of this show. Many episodes have a very different feel and direction.

2 lame episodes in a row >.> . I want another episode like 5, where it shows that Dandy is not just some boob loving idiot, or episode 7 filled with action pack stuff !!! The music for this Episode was SO FREAKING ANNOYING, I had to skip the part where they just played it for like 2 minutes. disappointed in this weeks episode, 5/10. Really hope we get something better next week.

Kaiba-esque episode, very trippy and intereting
It is so dense. Every single image has so many things going on.

Someone on the Dandy staff had an acid flashback and did the imagery for this episode. That was one hell of plantlife trip. I loved the visuals and the OST on this one.

Is it just me or did they change the animators for this episode too? Dandy looked different.

One of the most bizarre and interesting things I've watched. The animation felt really similar to Kaiba. Loved the soundtrack in this episode. The Stamen in a knot quote though

With everyone talking about Kaiba, i guess I need to watch it soon, been meaning too for a while now. Did Toonami say they are cutting Inuyasha for that Biotic Titan show?, it's like they are eliminating anime titles for American ones, oh well, at least Black Lagoon is coming. I digress, sorry

It was second Dandy's episode, that I really liked. Beautiful animation (like others, it reminded me Kaiba), great soundtrack and a lovely, bitter-sweet story.
