Jokes were awful in the dub. Could have been a decent dub if they didn't ruin it with LOL SO RANDUMB XDDD lines. Americans should leave comedy for other countries to handle.

In regards to the actual episode, it was fine. Nothing amazing and it was certainly overhyped. Then again, Cowboy Bebop started off weak and got better. Hopefully this will do the same.

It was enjoyable. My expectations were kinda low anyway. Nice soundtrack and art. Jokes were a bit weak. JP voices were good.

Funky or maybe I should say Dandy ;) OP, to bad Toonami had to cut it for time issues :/

The subs changed it... in the first half preview Dandy said "It starts with an A" and Honey replied "An ass" :/

Strange ED

Meh the dub and original are about equal in my opinion now that I've watched it both ways.

That was moronic, and it wasn't even the fun kind of moronic. I chuckled mildly at 'breastaurant' and nothing else.

THe ED, reminds me some much of something! I can't remember it!


Maybe Mawaru Penguindrum's ED?

Anyway, I'm a bit surprised from those who are saying they weren't expecting something silly like this. Not liking is completely understandable, but it was obvious from the very beginning that Space Dandy would be just mindless entertainment.
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...

That was a good first episode and the dub was done well.

This has great potential and was pretty funny. Wouldn't mind going to a breastaurant sometime in my life.

A pretty enjoyable first episode, the animation was great and it had a few laughs as well. Dandy is an ass man, I approve!

I watched the Japanese version with subs and I'll probably check out the English dub for curiosity's sake but I can't imagine anyone other than Suwabe voicing Dandy, he was perfect.

I'm probably going to be sticking around 'til the end for this show.

A kind of funky mixture between Outlaw Star and Inferno Cop with a big budget and a loud color palette. I'm sure it's going to have it's fans and lot of detractors too. I agree with Dandy on the as* vs. oppai debate too. Anime caters all too much to oppai lovers nowadays.

I will never understand why people rate a series one episode in. How can you judge a whole by a small number of it's parts? The system should only allow a rating after a certain number of episodes watched.

That was amazing! I loved the visuals and the music. Dandy so dandy that you can't help but like him. The animation was so fast paced, colorful yet easy to keep up with.

Do not worry about what he just said. It is only one episode of this anime and it has not yet reveal its full potential, so we will need to watch more episodes before making an actual judgement. Plus, even though one episode just aired now, you can not really expect it to be all that amazing as you can see this in other anime shows as well.

Synopsis:
Space Dandy is a dandy in space!.......

Yep its understandable for people to be surprised by the silliness, clearly this was built up to be a show carrying complex themes of tragedy based off that synopsis

It was alright. The 1st episode was goofy and really trippy. Like Samurai Champloo's Ep.9 drug scene trippy. The ending caught me off guard a bit, but I'll still give this one a shot.

«What is your name?
Dandy, Space Dandy.»

I immediately remembered of 007 agent BOND, JAMES BOND. xD

The animation was good, but not compared to SYD* that was f*cking awesome. I thought this anime would be a piece of sh1t, but I was probably wrong. Lets see in the second episode...

I'm a huge Cowboy Bebop fan and when I heard that Shinichiro Watanabe and Yoko Kanno were collaborating on a new show set in space I got really excited.

I originally watched the sub and then watched the dub afterwards.

Both versions have their pros and cons but I'm leaning towards the dub in this instance. Generally I thought the dub nailed the punchlines better. I don't quite know why one of the lines in the dub was changed to "You're an Asteroid Belt?" though.

The ED getting chopped in the dub was disappointing.

It was a solid opener, had a few laughs. I'm hoping it's going to grow on me as the season progresses.
See You Space Cowboy

same, i generally thought ian sinclair had a funnier line delivery, suwabe sounds cool and collective but ian sinclair does a good job at making dandy sound like a guy who thinks hes cool and in certain aspects is but is actually waaaaay over his head, which definitely seems like dandy's character in a nutshell

Awesome first episode. The last few minutes were pretty epic with them trying to run from the monsters, some crazy stuff right there. Since they apparently died at the end I'm guessing this is going to be an episodic anime.
