Shinichiro Watanabe’s (he did Cowboy Bebop too) Space Dandy‘s Space Dandy is a dandy guy. He doesn’t objectify women by goggling at their breasts. Because he’s an ‘ass’ man. He enjoys the simpler things, like visiting the intergalactic version of Hooters, a ‘breastaurant’ by the subtle name of ‘Boobies’, where ‘boobs’ go to get their eye and stomach-full of 3-breasted aliens and generic questionable fast-food.
Flanked by a robot called QT, Dandy’s intellectual superior despite being near obsolete, and stray talking alien cat creature thingy called Meow, be prepared for episodes of total narrative-near-absent chaos. Space Dandy is pulpy, full of colour and lithe animation, and with Season 2 even more outrageous than season 1, we can’t seem to get enough. It however seems we’ll have to settle for that as there may not be a Season 3, but a feature length film according to creators is a strong possibility.
In any case, this space opera of the misadventures of Space Dandy weirdly enough makes for good, wonderfully-weird lazy sunday viewings.
