Space Dandy is a dandy in space! This dreamy adventurer with a to-die-for pompadour travels across the galaxy in search of aliens no one has ever laid eyes on. Each new species he discovers earns him a hefty reward, but this dandy has to be quick on his feet because it's first come, first served! Accompanied by his sidekicks, a rundown robot named QT and Meow the cat-looking space alien, Dandy bravely explores unknown worlds inhabited by a variety of aliens. Join the best dressed alien hunter in all of space and time as he embarks on an adventure that ends at the edge of the universe!

The much-anticipated anime Space Dandy is set for premiere on Toonami at 11:30 PM, January 4th 2014 in English. Are you hyped for this anime or is it the first time you've heard of it? Does it pique your interest? What are your expectations for it?

This reminds me of That one Bobobo-bo bo-bobo anime I remember being shown on Cartoon Network early mornings/late nights when I was like 14 years old. I don't think I've ever been less inclined to watch a TV show than I have been watching this promo video. It looks sooooooooo stupid.

Yes! YES! So hype for this series. Being a huge fan of the Cowboy Bebop series I'm so looking forward to the craziness this show will surely bring. I also can't believe it's going to air here in U.S.A before anywhere else in the world. Kinda odd when you think about it, we aren't the biggest anime fans, especially when compared to Japan.

So Shinichiro Watanabe has a new thing? I'll try it. His last work, Kids on the Slope, was fantastic so I'm gonna hope that he'll continue that trend. I have a soft spot for science fiction, too, and even though this looks like it could still be terrible, it at least it looks different.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention!

It looks positively ridiculous and possibly borderline stupid, but I'm going to watch it anyway, because why not?

Exactly the reason I'm going to watch it. I think the somewhat ecentric art style makes me think of Kill la Kill and Trigun and both are pretty ridiculous in nature and I love them both, so why should I not try and maybe even enjoy this one?

That is exactly the anime I compared this to when I first saw it. But come on, Nick, the stupidity must draw you in, even just a little bit! :D

This looks pretty eccentric and fun. It reminds me of Cowboy Bebop in a way. I'll keep my eye on it when it airs.

It looks stupid, but that's what makes it so intriguing! I'm definitely watching the premiere to see if I like it. Plus it's directed by the same guy who did Cowboy Bebop, an anime I really love. What I find interesting is that it's airing in English(January 4th) first before it airs in Japanese (January 5th). That's a first. I'm interested in this.

Just a reminder guys! This is airing in the 3 easternmost time zones of the Continental United States (Eastern, Central, and Mountain) in just under 5 hours!

Anyone going to be watching it live?

I saw the premiere Saturday, and boy is it downright hilarious. I thought it was going to be a one-shot anime due to the ending, up until they showed the preview for next week's episode.

I thought it was good, so I'll probably keep watching it. One of my friends said it reminded them of the love child of Cowboy Bebop and Johnny Bravo, and i have to agree.

I thought Dandy was hot it was really cute, and despite the action scenes being choppy due to the studio's animation style, it was really well-done. I was also scared that it'd be a one-shot considering the ending, but the preview made up for it. I personally can't wait for the next episode!

I just got introduced to the series a few nights ago. I love it to tears, I've just been soaking in the animation and laughing. It's a fun ride, I'll be following this show for sure

I'm 15 minutes in the first episode of the dubbed version and it's hysterical. I'll definitely watch it throughout the season now.

Edit: I've caught up to episode 5, which was so sweet, I feel like crying.

I finally watched it last night and I can relate. It was so sweet and the character development was very well done. I hope this is the same kind of vein that the rest of the anime follows because I really enjoyed it, especially with Adelie's involvement.

Dem feels, yes! If only Adelie could grow up fast and join the crew.

Episode 6 The War of the Undies and Vest, Baby is out.
Spoiler:
One alien stripped Dandy down to his underwear... And the rival alien kidnapped Meow and liked Meow's vest. Those two grew against each other fairly quickly, but Meow seems to be the butt monkey in this series anyway with his frequent amount of deaths. This quip was funny:

Dandy: You're on camera, put on some pants already!
Meow: Says the guy with his chesticles hanging out! Put 'em in a vest, buddy!

When the planet is blowing up and QT says, "I'll never forget you two" pahaha.

So... BONES went back to the crazy one-shot alien-chasing episodes. :'(

I want to see more of Adelie. :( I got way too attached to her character because she had so much development in that single episode.

It went back to being its weird and raunchy self in the last episode, though. Which kinda made it a letdown of an episode for me. :(

This week's was pretty great. It left me smiling throughout the episode. The collision at the end... lmao. Such randomness!

The plot hasn't progressed at all. Why are the antagonists hunting down Dandy? He's mostly an incompetent bonehead, though he did show some skills during the space race this week.

It was a lot of fun with this week's. But, like Blade, I really want to know why the hell the "baddies" are after Dandy. That ship of those baddies reminds me of this guy.

I have a feeling the baddies are just a crutch for plot.

*happily screams in silence*

They REALLY need to bring back Adelie at some point! The chemistry between the two was incredible and made it one of Space Dandy's best episodes so far (next to of course him flipping off Prince during the Grand Prix).

I'm just worried that the way Space Dandy is set up so far - i.e. one-offs - that we might not get the reunion that we want.... ;____;

Last week's episode was brilliantly touching, though they did away with the villains without explaining why they were after Dandy. This past weekend's episode was in the realm of the weird. I'm not sure they know what direction they're trying to take this thing.

Still has been a fun ride, though!

Space Dandy by far is my favourite anime of the season. The art direction is amazing, the jokes, and parodies are great.

Did anyone notice a certain picture of Meow when QT was scanning Pup? :P

Latest episode took such an artistic, psychedelic approach in animation that makes this anime so much fun. However, did Dandy's meddling just kill off /devolve an entire planet on sentient plants? Uh oh...

Technically that wouldn't be the first time he's done something like that, as he ended up killing the last Undian and Vestian by interjecting in their eternal feud, blowing up the moon in the process as well.
