Space Dandy #6: The War on Undies and Vests

Seems pretty awesome, right? But you must remember: He is surfing... in space... in his skimpies.

So in this episode, Dandy and the crew attempt to put an end to warring aliens for the sake of money.

Wait, how’d they get the money to get the Aloha-Oe out of impound?

Obviously you'd expect a robot vacuum cleaner to keep her own room clean. Heck, this room is practically spotless.

During cleaning the Aloha-Oe, QT notices that Dandy has a couple surfboards lying around in his room, which Meow assumes he’s a shubee (someone who owns surfboards, but never surfs). Ayway, the crew are on course to the planet Eden, or rather its moon since the planet itself is destroyed. The two unidentified alien races inhabiting Eden are at war with each other for 10,000 years, which means that no one has been able to get close enough to capture any one of them.

No space Instagram for you, Meow.

While QT repairs the ship, Dandy and Meow are captured by the two alien races. It turns out that the races are at war because one race prefers to wear only underpants and the other wears only vests. The war has left both sides with only one of each race left and has called for allies. The last vest alien recruited Meow while the undies alien recruited Dandy.

Since there’s only one of each left and they’re not going anywhere until the other is dead, QT proposes that Dandy and Meow make peace between the aliens. However, both sides have a last ditch plan to blow up the moon should one die. However, Dandy and Meow manage to talk them into making peace, and bring an end to the war. In addition, they have to trade their signature clothing to each other. But those negotiations fail and lead to aggressive negotiations. Both sides are killed and both doomsday devices are activated, destroying the moon. QT launches off in the Aloha-Oe, leaving Dandy and Meow to die.

Well, Dandy, Meow, it's been nice knowing ya, for the third time. Fortunately the Reset Button is at the ready.

Luckily, QT remembers those surfboards Dandy has in his room and sends him one to surf off the exploding moon. Yes, we Eureka Seven up in here! And I gotta say, that last moment made the episode for me. It was a decent episode, but enjoyed the end the most.
