Space Dandy Episode 8 Impressions

Space☆Dandy Episode 8 – The Lonely Pooch Planet, Baby In my long time as an anime fan, I have watched some seriously non-content shows. For goodness sake, I even sat through all of Lucky Star! But at least Lucky Star taught me the pros and cons of chocolate cornet bread which is more than I can say for this episode of Space Dandy! I don’t know who ‘wrote’ the script for thi...

Space Dandy Episode 7 Impressions

Space☆Dandy A Race in Space is Dangerous, Baby At the end of last week, I said that this episode looked like a great opportunity for Bones to make a homage to a certain awesome 2010 racing movie that may well be my favourite anime movie of all time. Undoubtedly, there was always a bit of the bloodpumping magic that is Redline hidden somewhere between Dandy’s brilliant, bouffant quiff and the...

Space Dandy Episode 6 Impressions

Space☆Dandy The War of the Undies and Vests, Baby The human race has had its fair share of stupid wars. Oil, religion, the colour of our skin – They’ve all been fuel for conflict in the past, but only after the fact do we see how ridiculous and futile fighting over them really is. However, this week Space Dandy actually succeeded in making those wars seem reasonable in comparison to th...

Space☆Dandy Episode 5 – A Merry Companion is a Wagon in Space, Baby Do you want to know the bane of being an anime reviewer? Every time you claim that a series is amazing, it immediately bombs, and every time you say that it’s the worst thing since sliced Hitler, it makes the biggest comeback ever just to shut you up. Not a week on from saying that Space Dandy wasn’t worth carrying on ...

Space Dandy Episode 4 Impressions

Space☆Dandy Episode 4 – Sometimes, You Can’t Live With Dying, Baby The Western zombie phenomena is something that has fascinated Japan ever since George A. Romero’s 1968 classic, Night of the Living Dead. Somewhere along the way, that fascination trickled down into anime and manga and in the last decade there have been some extremely notable and, in all honesty, very good titles ...

Space Dandy Episode 3 Impressions

QT – $100, Floor Tiger – $200, Being a Dandy in space – Priceless Space☆Dandy Episode 3 – Occasionally, Even the Deceiver is Deceived, Baby Getting into my list of favourite anime is no easy task. Unless a series turns out to be something truly special it is going to need some serious character depth and a gripping plot to be in with a chance of rubbing shoulders with such ...

Space Dandy Episode 2 Impressions

Space☆Dandy Episode 2 – The Search for the Phantom Space Ramen, Baby Oh boy, what a week of anime it has been. Last week, I was adamant that Space Dandy would be the anime that blew us all away this winter season, but now that the competition has had a chance to reveal itself, I could find myself eating my words very soon. Every single one of my winter picks had a fantastic first episode, ev...

Space Dandy Episode 1 Impressions

Space☆Dandy Episode 1 – Live With the Flow, Baby Life is full of tough questions – Did Han shoot first? What is this lump on my arm? Did I let the cat out? Why am I asking so many questions? But these are all trivial matters. Space Dandy is a series masterfully crafted to answer all the big questions that haunt humanity and it started off by bursting into sight in a fiery blaze, asking...
