Space☆Dandy, Kekkai Sensen Recommendations
An episodic storytelling format, beautiful flowing animation by Bones, quirky background music and wonderfully-written characters are what make these two shows come alive. Both are short, 12-episode journeys through the everyday lives of the characters as they live and work alongside otherworldly creatures. Though generally lighthearted, both Kekkai Sensen and Space Dandy have enough emotional mini-arcs to pull at your heart.
While Space Dandy has no plot to speak of, it does have humans and weird aliens living together in space, in a show where random crazy action and non-standard animation can break out at any moment and the main character is always broke. Kekkai Sensen has much more of a plot, but if you like over-the-top action sequences and a setting where every other background character is a weird out-of-this-world creature, then you've come to the right show because this one has it in spades.
Both anime are stylish.
Both have a really wacky but really fun storyline (though Kekkai Sensen has some more seriousness to its plot)
Both have beautiful, creative animation done by BONES.
Both feature exotic-other worldy settings and creatures.
