A Dandy… In Space!
Updated: Feb 7
And his brave crew of space exploring, space explorers…in space!
Good morning my loyal Painkillers, and welcome to another addition of Anime Wednesday. Today I have a “Dandy” of an anime for you guys today. (Ugh, I can’t believe I went there.) Last time I talked about an anime that took place mostly at sea, so this time we are going back to space. So then, let’s get into it. Here is Space Dandy.
The show follows an alien bounty hunter named Dandy. He is…..well let’s face it, Dandy is a dumbass! Why else do you think that he is “a Dandy in space”? Along with his robot assistant QT, and his feline-like friend named Meow, the trio go out into space to find undiscovered and rare aliens. Dandy is also followed by Dr Gel of the Gogol Emipre. Dandy has no idea that Dr Gel is following him to capture him, even though Gel is in a spaceship that looks like the head of the Statue of Liberty, with a ball gag in its mouth. How the hell does Dandy not see that?
This show is completely off the wall! While it does seem like the show is all over the place, there is some continuity within the show. Trust me, there is you just have to find it. They went all out with the art and color with this show. Don’t watch this while high on acid or something like that. You will trip the fuck out. At the time of me writing this, Space Dandy is Hulu, or buy the 26 episode series here. Until next time Painkillers.
