Space Dandy [ep 2] RAMEN RAMEN GOD IM HUNGRY
This entire episode is a pointless endeavor for weird alien sushi and NOW I WANT WEIRD ALIEN SUSHI
I think the weird part about this anime is right now it is in extraordinarily wacky without direction territory. It makes it hard to make remarks about because how many times in one post can I say: and then they tried more ramen and were continued to be hunted by people who knew where they were in the one building so why was it a surprise they found them when they stayed in the same building? It’s slapstick and had mystery and characters meant to be important but I’m still going “okay and I’m ready for the slapstick alongside the weird point of this show you have coming for me”.
Dandy follows the premise of a phantom alien who makes ramen on a whim while throwing his alien cat friend out of the ship. I will remember that guys name at some point but right now he frustrates me and makes me go OKAY I AM WAITING FOR YOU SEVERE IMPORTANCE OR SOMETHING. It doesn’t help he starts off the episode by eating Dandy’s ramen and not even being like grateful for it saying it was okay. But then he leads Dandy on a magical adventure to find a phantom ramen shop and I am okay with this. For some reason.
The show has a lot of charm and even with rehashed premises and silly pointless adventure I find myself enjoying it. Most of this episode is the ape captain once again chasing after Dandy and Meow makes it worse by uploading pics of whatever ramen shop they’re in at the moment. You think they’d just leave the ramen hub at that point, but I guess that’s too sensible. Anyway, they suck at finding rare aliens and run out of money, so Dandy then approaches a nearby beautiful lady…and asks for money.
I think the entire point of this episode was to introduce her and come up with wacky as hell ramen styles which is okay by me. Must have…delicious ramen. I’m going to eat ramen now shut up.
They end up finding the mysterious ramen shop has a wormhole to another dimension where the phantom alien is. And rather than capture him or bring him in they just listen to his story.
QT and I both were like okay but what about the alien where is the alien. Anyway the alien made delicious looking ramen and had a tragic backstory and I’m pretty sure this is Space Dandy: Wacky fun adventures parodying space travel and boobs.
