Space Dandy is one of the most fun animes that I’ve seen in years, but more importantly it never takes itself seriously, which makes for a very entertaining experience each time. For those who have never seen this show it’s about a bounty hunter in space who searches for new alien life for registration, but Dandy almost always fails at this. Furthermore, that’s one of the aspects I like most about this series. Secondly, Space Dandy is episodic, which means that each episode is basically its own story that doesn’t rely on the last episode to continue the story. That being said it makes the show feel uniquely different each episode, but I can also see how some might find this method of story telling inconsistent. It’s almost like you get a different version of Dandy each episode, so in that way I don’t agree that Space Dandy is inconsistent.
Reasons why I love this series:
1. Space Dandy is a parody of Fan Service Anime, Sci-fi, and especially Space Operas.
2. The music is excellent that’s basically a combination of Jazz, Techno, and Pop music, which adds a lot of personality to the series.
3. The sidekick character QT is one big joke on technology and Siri from the iPhone.
4. The animation is awesome with lots of breathtaking environments and colors.
5. The characters are very likable, and have unique personalities that makes the show great.
6. Lastly, It has a ton of Pop Culture references in it, but what I liked most about these references was that the show not only makes fun of them, but also pays tribute to them.
Official Synopsis: Rocket into the outer limits with the one and only Dandy! This dreamy space case and his to-die-for pompadour jets across the galaxy in search of aliens no one has ever laid eyes on. Capturing rare species may pay the bills, baby, but Dandy would rather kick back and enjoy the scenery at the nearest Boobies. Joined by his misfit sidekicks – a rundown vacuum cleaner robot called QT and Meow the alien space cat – Dandy boldly goes where no daper don has ever gone before. Hotly pursued by the chimp-faced Dr. Gel, the adventures of Dandy and the gang will make you laugh, then cry, and then laugh till you cry all over again. Buckle up for blast off, baby! You’re cruising with the Dandy now, and he don’t stop till the end of the universe.
