Eh, the first episode was alright. Wasn't too funny. Best part was the ending, lol. Still, this is from the creator of Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo, and neither (or at least Bebop) had the greatest premiere, so I'll keep following this for now.

watched it dubbed and it was generally pretty lacking in wit/humor/timing which i've come to expect from dubs

gonna try the sub for ep 2 and see if it improves

Anime is saved.

Any western style anime is going to save anime.

I am sort of sick of these kind of animation, the crazy kind of anime, they've been giving out a lot recently weren't they? I wonder if we'll get that kind of show every season.

I feel like this anime is soulless, it's style over substances, though I must admit, it looks good, other than that, meh. I didn't even realize/remember any of the OST, the OP and ED is nothing special.

So, is anime saved now? After KlK? After Space Dandy?

Yes, I've read up to the latest chapter of Shingeki No Kyojin manga.
Forced myself to read through the kidsketching chapters after the anime's ended. At least from now on, I only have to go through the hell once a month.
Patiently awaiting SNK TV/movie/OVA anime-sequel.
The 2015 SNK live-action movie would probably suck.

i like dandy's english voice actor, it fits him tbh
i like the animation and art, and i actually thought it was funny?? ya'll are bein too harsh
plus, i'm pretty sure this isn't western themed?? if you're clever enough you'll see it's sort of has the 70's anime thing going on
if you're coming in with expectations you're gonna have a bad time

I "felt" a mixture of fascination and horror, an inner storm difficult to explain and rationalize in their own way, to make words worthy or unworthy for this anime series. There is so much good, but I also felt a sense of boredom.
Perfect designs, great animation, color futuristic design as the script. Maybe too much for me! XD
For now, the rating is 7/10, still not able to understand such a beauty.

Space☆Dandy: Saving anime since 2014.

This show has a badass retro space-flick feel, trippy art, and nonsensical comedy. 5/5.
Also, is that... a ship in the form of the statue of liberty's ball-gagged head? Sick.

Hahaha this was a parody on pretty much everything. Every single frame of thie anime has a joke in it, or is making fun of something. Star wars, hooters, buzz lightyear, austin powers, string theory ( will make your brain melt), star trek, 2001: A Space Odessey... PIMONIUM?!? And this is just the first episode. Way to go Watanabe! I have a feeling this will be one of the most intelligent and wacky parodies I've ever seen. Jokes abound for the physics, math, and sci-fi nerds! 5/5!

Breastaurant for the win ahahaha. Boobies are the best <3 Aw yis, a blonde hottie :3
Dandy is not dandy enough!! The robot's voice is so cute *^* Satake Uki needs more roles!!
The animation looks good. Opening song is cool. The ending song is so cute *^* I thought Satake Uki sung it.
Well, let's see how this goes :D

Animation is gorgeous, all of the alien designs and the backgrounds.... and the last part- really beautifully animated!
My problem lies rather with our dear protagonist, Dandy... I just don't like his character so far... Meow and QTs character make up for it though, kinda... (love the character designs for those 2)
And the OP is absolutely fabulous

This was somewhat like if Zaphod Beeblebrox from "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" (or to a lesser extent, Zapp Brannigan from Futurama) got his own show. The animation was fluid, and the art style and color palette makes it look more like an American Cartoon. But as of now, the show is neither that funny or interesting to me. I hope it gets better.

This reminded me a little of that movie "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" that was completely over the top and out there.
To be honest this not exactly my cup of tea. I like my shows to have a sense of balance because when they are too out there they become too crazy to even be funny. For now is not awful though and the premise still have potential for an interesting plot so i will stay with this and see where it goes.

I didn't know anything about this show other than that it was highly spoken of on various sites. Space Dandy is hilarious. I'm looking forward to watching more.

This first episode was semi-funny but I feel like the show has potential to be a very funny as the show progresses
I like the main character, he reminds of Spike from Cowboy Bebop except he's more silly-like.
This seems like one of those shows where you just sit back, stop thinking, turn your brain off, and just enjoy it.

Dandy and JP from Redline look too much alike and have an identical voice in the dub. Hopefully with a few more episodes I'll get past it.
Fuck it. Every signature I upload ends up removed anyways.

Fun episode. Doesn't take itself too seriously, but at the same time it doesn't go overboard with weirdness. It's just bizarre enough to keep me laughing while maintaining some semblance of a story and characterization.

just watched it. it is quite entertaining.obviously it is a parody of Cowboy Bebop(by the same creator,no less!)but it also parodies other stuff too. the ones i caught are code geass,he-man,and earthworm jim.

still,it was fun watching this episode :). anyone has an explanation why they arent dead after the end though? XD

The beginning was funny with some nice fanservice. Then it got hella trippy. But Bones does not disappoint, it looks nice.

I guess it's another protester for the great war of B's, you know exactly what I mean there.
The animation and art style are breathtaking, especially on the action-packed moments, this is going to be wild, the humor is subtle but very effective, and this DUB is truly genius.
This is going going to be the type of dramatic emotionaly rollercoaster, I mean, it's only apparent from the labels this show is tagged with, it's sure going to be something different. I'm all for the change.
But that animation though...

The comedy on the show was terrible only stupid slice & life and school anime have worst comedy but I like the use of color and the animation.So this is from the creator of Cowboy Bebop which I hate it and Samurai Champloo which I liked it so this one could go either way.
