Space Dandy // First Impressions

"Check it out, Kirito. I got more chicks than you do. And as far as I know, not one of them is my sister/cousin."

Can Shinichiro Watanabe really give Toonami on [adult swim] a worldwide broadcast premiere AND an extra half-hour?
Oh, the Dandy man can, my friends. The Dandy man can.

Space Dandy is a Studio Bones and Bandai Visual original. In Space Calendar 0014, exotic aliens are high in demand, and our protagonist, Space Dandy, is an intergalactic alien hunter with a really sweet hairstyle on the hunt for them, alongside his rundown robotic buddy QT and a cat-like alien originating from the Planet Betelgeuse they nicknamed “Meow.” On his off time, he hangs out with the lovely waitresses at BooBies. Meanwhile, the Gogol Empire is hot on Dandy’s trail for unknown reasons.

Well, first episode in, it’s pretty obvious about four minutes in that this show has no idea of a fourth wall. Which means that it’s probably not going to take itself seriously. It was weird, but it was damn funny. I’m truly looking forward to watching more of this. Fortunately, this means Winter season anime is off to a good Dandy start. Unlike last Fall season, but let us never speak of that again.
