Space Dandy ep 1: SPACE HOOTERS [first impression]
It took about fifteen seconds for this show to capture my heart. Ssssshhh
I was in a terrible mood when I started watching Space Dandy. But after about a minute the shows opening kicked in and I was raring to go. Let me start by saying Space Dandy isn’t the first to do what it does, or even the best. But it does what it’s trying to do without shame, with a lot of laughs, and a whole bunch of fun. If you haven’t seen it go do it now because love it or hate it, it’s worth a view.
BECAUSE IF NOTHING ELSE
LOOK AT THAT FUCKING BACKGROUND!
DO YOU SEE THAT SHIT PEOPLE?
I WANT TO EAT THAT BACKGROUND. I AM SURE IT IS PARTIALLY MADE UP OF SUGAR AND THEN MAYBE A LITTLE DEATH AND LACK OF OXYGEN AND THE DEEP FORCE OF SPACE BUT COME ON I FEEL LIKE COTTON CANDY AND CRYSTALLINE SUGAR WENT INTO THE MAKING OF THIS DELICIOUS BACKGROUND. I would make love, to this background.
In any case, the show cuts right to the point: there’s shit going on and they don’t care. The protagonist doesn’t care. He spends all his time at a busty restaurant chain and only stops to fuck up property in the name of bounty hunting. And it’s the weird finding shit bounty hunting. To be honest it’s more like he’s an archaeologist but bitches ain’t gonna crowd to no damn archaeologist SHIUT.
For some reason a guy is looking for Space Dandy, and he is involved with the intergalactic war to claim the universe at the moment. Space Dandy doesn’t care, neither does the narrator.
In fact, most of this shows appeal is in that it ignores everything. I’m sure it will eventually directly look the plot in the face, but it’s charm as of no is completely thrilling. It’s nice to have a protagonist who’s really charismatic- because that’s why the show is good. If anything can save this show to people it’s that it has a protagonist with a very upbeat and likable charm even though he is kooky as hell.
I’m not a fan of the type of music in the show, but it fits so well that I love it. I just want to sit and watch the show all day given the obscene details put into the art, environments, characters, and dialogue. It’s like Binbo-Gami-Ga but not quite as zany and equally as entertaining. The way in this episode alone Dandy gets in and out of shit amuses me. Not to mention falling for a Boobies sticker as a moniker for a rare species. . . all of the members sans the robot on board are perverts and it’s just a fun time.
I’ll definitely be watching this. Because come on DO I SEEM LIKE I WOULDN’T FOLLOW A SHOW WITH A SPACE HOOTERS AND AMUSING THEMES AND OH GOD beautiful FUCKING BACKGROUNDS
Boobies! Boobies! Boobies!
Those three words are all I needed to know that this series and I would have an amazing relationship. Because I do love me some boobies! I was massively sad when I missed seeing this on Toonami/Adult Swim. However, jumping over to the Funimation site. I gotta say, for a dub that’s coming out right along side the Japanese. It’s pretty awesome! However, you don’t want to hear me talk about voice actors! You want me to talk about boobies!
No! not those kind of boobies! I mean the restaurant. With it’s amazingly hot waitresses and Not so hot wings. [Sounds like another restaurant of sorts that I’ve been to before.] Our main characters dream? To buy out the Boobies franchise!
However, the really appealing part about this series is how many F*cks are never given. The Narrator doesn’t care, Dandy doesn’t care. He’s supposed to be hunting aliens for a living? pfft, how about a Gilgamesh Tequila?
The only one that really seems to care about anything at all. [unless we’re talking about Dandy’s care of his hair.] Is Dandy’s outdated robot companion. Searching the bar until it shuts down for rare aliens for them to capture.
However, they end up capturing a space cat with a sticker on it’s cheek.
There is some plot about a Space War, but the anime doesn’t care! Just go with the flow! Unless it involves your hair, that lovely Pompadour of his can’t fall out. So remember, too much hyper drive makes your hair come out! After some hair loosing space travel! we end up on a planet full of strange monsters! It would probably make them millions, if they could manage to catch anything. How these guys aren’t as poor as the Bebop crew with how outdated their things are I’ll never know!
The only way to save themselves now from the onslaught of crazy space aliens, is with an atomic hula dancer!
Maybe we should of thought this through a little better. Please everyone. Do not panic, I’m sure they’ll be able to teleport out in time!
oooooorrrr not. and wait….did they pull the “and everybody dies~” ending on the first episode? I mean, Bebop waited at least nine episodes for that. I guess that’s one way to do something. I can’t say I saw it coming. But rest assured guys! It’s not the end! I mean, they can come back from being evaporated just like the Bebop crew came back from the attack of the Lobster in the fridge.
This anime reminds me a lot of Sergent Frog and Nerima Daikon brothers. I feel like people who liked those series will be really into this. The tales of Dandy’s lazy amazing bravery will echo through the ages. Maybe….
