What a spectacle, best japanese animation I've seen in a while for sure. Not much story went on but I don't really care cuz the ep was just a lot of fun. Pretty funny too I gotta say.

Pretty weak first episode. Breastaurant pun made me grin a little, but that's pretty much the whole enjoyment from the episode I got. I'll give a few more episodes but I should probably keep my expectations low.

Oh god this show. Shit got weird at the last five minutes. That was some mindless action there but it sure was fun and enjoyable. Bones do really deliver the best sakugas.

5/5

Lol about Dandy's last resort weapon at the end.

Immature fan-servicy comedy, cringe-worthy dialogues (Kangoku Gakuen did a much better "I'm an ass-guy" joke in a creative way, and dedicated a whole set of chapters for it, 4th wall breaking is Gintama's speciality, done at good places). A bland lead. Pointless moe voices, silliness, and your typical space-setting with aliens. Don't think I'm following it. Guess I was expecting a lot from this shit.

Wow that animation. So crazy, too, it's just what I expected. I wonder how they're gonna escape that explosion.

I don't understand why people aren't liking this anime that much.
The art is amazing, the characters are likable, the comedy is good.What's the problem with a bit of craziness?
To me it personally reminds me a lot of Redline for the obvious reasons(well yeah without the racing part) and that means the anime is not that bad.

P.S. I'm repeating myself, but LOL SPACE DANDY REALLY REMINDS ME OF REDLINE.And not just because of the hairstyle.

Ugh... I enjoyed the animation and the music, but that's pretty much all. Might force myself to give it a second try, but as for now, this one is not for me.

I had high expectations for SD and the first episode delivered. I lolled hard at the point in which he starts shooting and after missing every shot, he acts like he's a badass lol
5 main aspects I base my ratings on:
1. Did DramaEnthusiast make a thread about it?
2. Is it better than Breaking Bad?
3. Did MellowJello recommend the shit out of it?
4. Has it caused a (very entertaining) shitstorm on MAL?
5. Is it actually good?

Scratch the fifth point, it's not very relevant...

I'm a bit disapointed they didn't keep the bare feet though. Cause Anne Francis feet made the movie imo.

Pretty meh apart from the last segment.

Have to admit I found the gag with him throwing away his gun when he tried to holster it pretty funny, though.

An info for the mods. Yoko Kanno did the music, so the OST, fix it.

As for the episode, what can I say? This is the best anime of this season, I call it now, I could even trust my own asshole to Watanabe&Kanno.

Watched sub, didn't disappoint, Dandy'VA is fucking great.

Music 10/10.
That 70s feel is so nostalgic, yet so modern and innovative. It gave me an LSD effect but it was really good.

Looking forward to the next episode.

That was one of the dumbest things I've seen in a while. It started out Ok and I thought maybe this could be good but that last part of the anime was random stupidity. Almost felt like somebody was doing drugs when they decided to do this.
yeah mindless fun is horrible, needs more moe.. notsrs


Moe? what? compared to Samurai champloo or cowboy bebop this is just dumb.

Watanabe expressely said that this is going to be a lot more softer and dumber than CB or Samurai Champloo. But this of course doesn't mean that it's going to be 100% fanservice and 100% silliness. Just wait you there folks.

The first episode is actually the last episode and all the other episodes are events that happened in the past.
Animation is really really awesome.
Nothing really made me laugh at loud, but it was a feels good.

Did I just see a properly animated version of Inferno Cop in this episode?

OT: I liked this episode quite a bit. It was pretty entertaining and the art style is really cool. Reminds me of Redline. I think I'll stick to this show. Can't wait to see what we have in store next!

Pretty good episode! I liked the music, characters and animation, but I think we also need a badass female in the group!

I don't see why people are being so judgmental already, it's only the first freaking episode. Seriously, how many great animes are out there that have a "not great" first episode? A lot.

I'm just gonna remain optimistic about this anime because I really want it to be good. Might be trying too hard to be like Bebop, but it's okay, 'cause it's Watanabe.

Main character is awesome so far. Funny, cool, not too serious, and I like that the english voice actor is the same guy who voices Toriko and Brook from OP. Definitely gonna be watching this dubbed.

Judging from the preview of the next episode, everyone's okay after the supernova. Calling it now: the characters rewrote the script and forgot to tell the narrator.

Anyhoo, wasn't sure if I wanted to watch it, but I did it anyway. Hopped on the crazy Aloha-Oe, and I'm there to stay. Godspeed, Space Dandy.

Okay, now that he destroyed the planet, himself and his ship, what will the rest of the show be about? lol

Blacksaber said:
This anime will be a very love/hate anime unless it goes somewhat serious from now on, but from the preview I'm having a hard time seeing that happening. While I sorta wish it was more Bebop like, I don't mind it being the wacky way it is.

It almost seemed to be more like Bobobobo than Bebop.
What if the Hokey Pokey is what it is all about?

Dandy's a ass man. In more ways than 1.

Lmao at the end.

Oh and that ending, she sung Arakawa Under the Bridge's OPs. Loved that.

I really like Dandy (I'm all about the ass myself). I can't wait to see all the nonsense this show is capable of. I'll definitely be watching more of this. Also, I'm amazed at all the actual reviews for one episode, either immediately writing it off or giving way too much praise. Its the first episode. . Chill out.

I think this was a somehow weak first episode. I know what they were trying to do with all the over-the-top scenes, but sometimes I just felt the comedy and the random circumstances of Dandy and co. too forced, like a happy-go-lucky tripulation that just go "with the flow" of things without questioning everything. I don't mind the sexual humor, since is directed torwards a male audience, but the thing is that the plot is just weak and tries to put different plots just for the sake of making it more deep.

I liked the music, mostly speaking the opening is really nice, the ending not that much. The animation is so weird, 'cause sometimes is very limited, and sometimes is somehow fluid and impressive, but always keep being too cheap, like the animators just wanted to finish the episode quickly in a decent quality, without thinking too much on details.

But despite all of this, is just the first episode, and a really weird one btw with the most unexpected conclusion that didn't make me laugh but make me feel very confused of what I just watched. So, I'm just gonna keep watching it and see if the "plot" or the "characters" get better or something like that, because if this is the way things are going with every episode, is gonna get tiresome very fast of boob jokes, random and stupid sutiations, and will be really boring to watch.

I really liked the dub. The episode was totally random, starting from pervy Han Solo checking out the hooters and catching a supposed new alien, but instead gained a new companion! Then it just went weird with a space gorilla saying Dandy's like, a key to a war? Then we saw some psychedelic alien running on a planet, the main trio were somewhat cornered, and then they BLEW UP. And were still getting a 2nd episode.

Yea, this show is gonna be one of the most confusing yet awesome animes out there. Like a mix between FLCL and Cowboy Bebop.

Dub was nice to listen too. Ian Sinclair fits the Dandy well. Consider me going on the Dub train now. Comedy was on the more ridiculous side but that's what I expected based on the previews so I'm happy

Mmh, it was okay but not that great. I never actually laughed, just chuckled here and there.
I actually didn't have any particular expectation but I think I'll keep watching anyway.

I totally love the OP, ED and ost though. Especially the OP... I've been listening to it for the past month, I'm totally addicted to it xD

Liking it so far. I was hoping that girl would join the crew :( but Meow is cool. Good thing to watch when you just want to have fun. Will be a hit or miss for a lot of people due to it's comedy (perverted + plain wackiness) doesn't appeal to everyone but can't say for sure that it won't get more serious later.

I enjoyed this, it was quite entertaining. I wonder how they even survived that. Love how they tried to defy logic when they survived that impact. Some jokes weren't that funny and silly, but I think they were going for that lol.

The series is like watching a classic of the '80s, the music, the protagonist, the bar will undoubtedly be an excellent series.

It was awesome! It was exactly the kind of insanity I was hoping for. I loved how the first words out of his mouth were boobies. I loved how they acknowledge that they broke the fourth wall.
