Nothing beat the hilariousness of jesus onii-sama.
You faggots can't even name 2 animators that made the sakuga sequences for this episode, you faggots think you are hardcore otaku because you've been watching every mediocre moeshit anime since 2010 and never watched a single show made before the date of your birth
When will you faggots realize you are as entry-level as they come and feel shame for being complete retards?
Definitely one of the most refreshing and enjoyable anime I've seen in the last few years. Weebs are getting too used to being spoonfed their fanservice and dull exposition to appreciate the relaxed pace Dandy
At least the directors of these "mediocre moeshit anime" don't humiliate their cast members.
Says the uninteresting faggot.
you aren't doing any better there kiddo. So far this has been like watching 2 people pee on each others jeans.
>completely ignoring the argument
I'm not saying you're ignorant because you like moe, I'm saying you like moe because you're an ignorant retard that has no knowledge of the industry and it's history
You have no understanding of what the word "cancer" means, you are fucking dredge on this board
Yeah, but at least she knows along with everyone else what she's supposed to say and do because the people responsible for the script gave everyone and EVERYONE the final script from the start. God forbid she got too attached to her role only to find out a couple days before the final recording session that Onee-chan is going to die, while everyone else knew before her.
>implying I'm the anon you're even arguing with
Nigga where did I say shit about moe?
and puffing your chest out doesn't count as a counterpoint. Anime has become undeniably filled with fanservice in the last decade or so
I'm not saying you're ignorant because you like Space Dandy, I'm saying you like Space Dandy because you're an ignorant retard that has no knowledge of the industry and it's history.
You have no understanding of what the word "cancer" means, you are fucking dredge on this board
If that's what you call arguing, enjoy your "argument".
The people who think the 90s was entirely beebop, eva, gundam, and other toonami shows without realizing that they were the minority even then and that the vast majority of shows every season even in the 80s and 90s were "moe" shows, adaptations, and flops. We get more serious, adult themed and older audience oriented shows every year, but they don't know about these and obsess that the 90s was some golden era of anime because they were only exposed to a very small portion of it as kids.
I can still understand, but having seen the entire series I'd really advise watching the rest. Don't treat it as a comedy, because it isn't. It's just like any other show with comedy in it
This guy right here understands.
If you're a autist neckbeard who can't invest in a show unless he has an erection within the first half of an episode then there's no way you'd be able to comfortable sit and watch a show like this.
I like space dandy because it allowed animators to express their creativity and gave up and coming animators a huge stage in the form of a international anime series to showcase their talents, like it was the case for Kiyotaka Oshiyama in this season's fishing episode
But you wouldn't understand any of that given that you have no knowledge of the industry and only watch anime to fap to waifus and moe because you're a pathetic neckbeard that can't get a girlfriend
I don't need an erection retard, I need to get myself invested in the show without wanting to just quit while I'm ahead due to the embarrassingly unfunny "humor" and the uninteresting characters.
>If you're a autist neckbeard who can't invest in a show unless he has an erection within the first half of an episode then there's no way you'd be able to comfortable sit and watch a show like this.
Thank you for agreeing with me, but people like you are the reason everyone on /a/ hates Dandy without really watching it. Any show with people fervently insisting it's good gets hated on, like Dandy or LogH
Space Dandy was the most blatant "we want the western audience" shit I have ever watched.
I'm sure /co/ loved it. But not here and definitely not Japan.
In fact, the sales are so abysmal that I am pretty sure it was career ending for a lot of the staff. Basically a lesson to all future productions committees to never go after the toonami/co/ audience ever again.
People who watch good anime? Yes
MAL and /a/ are the exact same species since they are both entry-level kids who worship mediocre series but you don't realize this because you force yourself to believe your mediocre SoL is better than their shounen
Too bad you're attempt to ignore an argument isn't worth shit and only makes you look like a retard
Yeah, people just don't appreciate fine art like you do.
The world must be a dark place for such a distinguished individual as yourself, a beacon of knowledge blazing out across a black sea of ignorance.
I hear you, but the problem is stuff like that usually gets riled up by people hating in the first place.
>I like Dandy so I'll make thread about it
>gtfo back to (/v/,/co/,/redit/)
>But Dandy is a good anime with...
>Fuck off dubfags hurdurr randumbXD
>Stop having shit taste
Why is this show's fanbase so horrible?
It's a shame since it was one of my favorite anime from the past seasons and I really hoping for a third season.
Is it because it aired on toonami?
I actually thought the first half wasn't that bad and gathered a lot of undeserved hate, but the second half is inexcusable garbage. Bones went full Trigger, so did the threads surrounding the show.
I like how any anime with even a slight western vibe to it is now considered pandering to westerners. Did you evert think that maybe directors just happen to like and are influenced by movies from the west?
Do you have any sources for that success? I don't think that Funi threw all that much money at them and the sales right now seem to be on the level of such hits as Z/X Ignition and Nobunaga The Fool.
>>But Dandy is a good anime with...
Nno this doesn't sound right
>HOLY FUCK FUCKING AOTY BASED BONES BASED WATANABE (fuck you) BASED DANDY I LITERALLY SPAT MY DRINK FUCK YOU ELITIST NECKBEARD GO BACK TO YOUR LOLI HAREMSHIT
Yeah that's more accurate.
>In fact, the sales are so abysmal that I am pretty sure it was career ending for a lot of the staff. Basically a lesson to all future productions committees to never go after the toonami/co/ audience ever again.
We don't have any idea what their business model is, and basing the success/failure solely on Japanese BD sales when the American audience is the primary one is really dumb.
According to the production staff, the show was a success.
Like I said, I'm just repeating what I've heard. If you don't believe me just find out for yourself if it really bothers you.
I honestly hate the fanbase, but it wouldn't nearly be so bad if, like >>114504710 said, people stopped coming into threads just to say "I've seen 2 episodes of Dandy and it wasn't funny at all"
>If you don't believe me just find out for yourself if it really bothers you.
No, I'll just keep thinking that the thing you said is wishful thinking and/or someone trying to save face.
It will sell bad though, unfortunately. It great that it got heaps more points than fucking Rail Wars on Nico Nico streams. It gets constant 90s while Rail Wars ended with 54% at 1.
All the more to you then.
I don't see why needing to "save the anime industry" is necessary. It has been shit for the past few years, and it won't get better if you don't watch shows like Dandy or SAO
According to this, Bleach and SnK ultimately did better, ratings-wise.
At some point halfway though the season, even the Toonami audience must have noticed that this season of SD a shit.
It's been 100 post and I just now realized this entire thread was nothing but a ruse.
Are you trolls from /co/ really this good?
i thought this thread was full of cancer
i still think it is but i guess i found one good reply
How could you not know from the start? Any thread that states something like an irrefutable fact is guaranteed to get hate and people bitching about a fanbase.
OP probably doesn't even like SD
Ah yes. I'm sure Funi/AS/Toonami sent back $10 million dollars to cover costs of production.
American household ratings are worth so much money that they can fund expensive anime production purely based off their international viewership!
Meanwhile in reality land.
AS/Funi bought the international license early on and receive all future benefits of international success.
Japan has their own business models relying on merchandise and BD/DVD. This is for domestic profit. Of which there is none.
The ending kind of disappointed me with Momoka learning her "lesson" and getting all weird and lesbian-y with Poorara. Heartless Momoka best Momoka
The sheer size of American viewership may change this, though.
Or maybe anime creators may get a little bit wiser and demand a bigger part of the US broadcasters' profit.
Alternatively they'll simply make anime for the West properly like Ducktales and Batman: the Animated Series.
Nothing to do with the case of Shit Dandy of course.
Yeah, it's a meme alright. Just like the "people in france speak french"-meme and the "fire is hot"-meme.
>"le sao is bad"
But keep typing like an idiot.
Oh no, the having posting standards meme!
You've stooped this low, /a/. Give yourself a big hand.
Space Dandy was pretty damn Westaboo. Not that that's a bad thing. Kojima is one of the biggest Westaboos in the videogames industry and I find his blending of Japanese ridiculousness with Western action movie machismo to be refreshing and fun and a whole lot of other people seem to feel the same way.
I just wish he would give us ZoE 3 already.
My final statement is that Dandy wasn't a show to be seen as a whole, but a series of shorts dedicated to showing off the talent in the industry like Genius Party or Robot Carnival, it was a show created for the animators and believe who like watching animation, it wasn't made to appeal to an audience of casual TV watchers, if you can't appreciate the show this then you are a cancerous entry-level newfags.
It's a shame /a/ will continue to be oblivious to their own retardation and ignorance while thinking they like anime only because they watch terrible mediocre shows from the current airing season
I think it's a little of both. I really fucking loved Space Dandy myself and found it to be an interesting, somewhat unique experience, but I'm not going to be some elitist faggot who blames everything on the moe strawman and claims that my personal tastes are objective fact.
They'd have to. Momoka being Momoka is what sells the whole fucking show. You can't have Sabagebu! without Momoka shooting old grannies in the goddamn face and sacrificing fatties and Urara without even a second thought to their demise.
>Spring: Ping Pong
Imagine if people fell for this.
The Court Episode was a great way to bring everyone together and reveal that Dandy is pure pyonium.
The black cut-to's kinda reminded me of Law and Order. All it lacked was the DUN DUN.
There was also tons of 12 Angry Men references throughout the episode, especially during the jury deliberation scene.
>*tilts up hipster glasses*
What are you forgetting? He said Ping Pong is the worst of spring. Oh and of course Ping Pong is nothing but shittily drawn hipstershit which is why /a/ loves it so much. NGNL AOTS!
I'm not saying that it's not, I'm saying just because it has that vibe doesn't mean it's pandering to westerners.
By that logic something like 'gunsword' is pandering to westerners, and no one gives a gives a shit about that show.
>but I'm not going to be some elitist faggot who blames everything on the moe strawman and claims that my personal tastes are objective fact.
You sound far too level headed for this place.
/a/ isn't my main board since I'm pretty casual when it comes to anime, I just come here on occasion to discuss what few animes I've made time for this season since everyone else I know rarely keeps up with the seasonals I mostly post on /v/
>Great animation and music
>Varied and original episodes
>Made a plethora of respected directors
>Gets hate because it airs on some American TV channel nobody cares about
That's because SD IS aots, and it's fans are those with better tastes. It's barely even a show. If episode 5 or 21 were released as shorts people would be splerging their pants for SD. Not every episode hit the mark. But the episodes that did were the best things to come out this year.
Also it's soundtrack was amazing.
Goddamn, I've ironically shitposted anime as animes so often it's become a habit.
The autists of /a/ decided they hated this before it even aired. They want /a/ to be their echo chamber and delude themselves into thinking that anyone that disagrees with them is from another board.
>not even hipster cause I have mainstream /a/ tier taste
>people always think I am hipster cause I like Ping Pong
It's not because the story is good or anything..
Okay, imagine a scenario where you're new to the anime industry and you don't know how everything works yet, and the people responsible for the script decide "he's new, fuck it let's not tell him what happens at the end until the last minute because we can", but you get very attached to your debut role, and you can't just get over losing something precious to you overnight, or even in a week. They send you your script, and surprise! Your character you worked very hard for is going to die a meaningless death. This wouldn't be a problem if all the other cast members didn't already know from the start, and I imagine you're forbade to talk about spoilers and shit in those parts. This meant a lot to you, so much so that you can't even watch the final product without crying in public.
That's the story, morning glory. At least, those are the rumors those silly nips are dishing out but I'm not surprised.
When I say ironic shitposting I mean more of referring to anime as korean talkin comics or calling Piccolo by Big Green, not shit like >>114505272.
I'm running on about three hours of sleep and very little food, apologies for not explaining myself clearly.
As much as you faggots and your autism may deny it. Zankyou no Terror was AOTS.
Yes if it kept the themes of the first couple of episodes closer it could have easily been much better. But it didn't happen your way, don't let your autism refuse to like to appreciate the other episodes for what it is.
It isn't the best anime if the year, It's the best of this season. If you find it to be bad, then it reflect on this seasons quality more than the series itself. Aldnoah was a close second but the ending was~.
Although this is all just my opinion so don't get butt flustered if you disagree with me.
You can only come up with bullshit arguments. People on /a/ equate 'I didn't like it.' with 'bad show.' For Animation, Soundtrack and Writing, SD has both been genuinely good and occasionally unique. Even if you don't like it, you can't deny they had high quality artists working on this show, with guests every episode, and they created a show that was unlike anything else this year. I would give it aoty potentially because of it's meaning as a series, but I don't expect and won't get mad that others have different opinions on that. I will take offense to calling it a bad show. That is retarded.
I'd blame all the crossboarders for the low quality of threads. I can't remember the last time I saw so many 3D
PDand Vidya reaction images in an /a/ thread. Allthough some KlK threads came close.
Also many people who asked cute questions like "I missed it on TV, is there a way I can still watch the episode?"
But if it's not perfect it's literally worse than something you would scrape off your heel and the people responsible for it need to have sharp, rusty cooking utensils shoved into their gentiles.
If you don't take animes this seriously, you should probably go to reddit.
I wonder where are those massive faggot KlK fans.
the show was good itself, not especially good, but still decent. Its fanbase is what is really pissing me off. They act like it was the best thing in their life, and the show was perfect.
When this season started, I thought it was going to be either it, Akame ga Kill!, Aldnoah.Zero, Tokyo Ghoul, or Zankyou no Terror.
Turns out that for me the best anime of the season were Barakamon. Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun, Majimoji Rurumo. Rokujouma no Shinryakusha!?, and Sabagebu.
If Space Dandy did one thing, it confirmed that all /a/ gives a shit about is indulging its pedo fuck, loli obsession.
ZnT gave me my newfound HOTC, but yeah not even close to AOTS.
Akame ga Kill is the kind of show that's enjoyable to a certain degree if you pretend the show is one big crossover and you pretend the seiyuus are all voicing characters from different shows which they have previously voiced. Not AOTS.
Aldnoah's fucking shit, Slaine's not even cute. Not AOTS.
Tokyo Ghoul is nothing but pitch black so I can't tell what's supposed to be good or bad. Not AOTS.
Space Dandy is unfunny trash but it fits perfect for [as]. But still, not AOTS.
>Majimoji Rurumo. Rokujouma no Shinryakusha!?
No surprise when you like shows that you have lower expectations for over ones you have high expectations for. That's why I always go into seasons with a open mind.
For me Space Dandy 2 > A/Z > Gekkan
Momoka and Dandy switch places, what happens?
I don't see the reason off showing bloody scenes in censors, if the show itself has huge violence.
Whats the point of changing color and watching black screen most of the time. At this point even rewriting the plot would end up better.
>People like Adélie over Poe
top shit tastes
Maybe its popularity was due to its draw style, and rough animations. It can be easily picked up, also easy to understand. There was no case at all when I watched and I was thinking about something.
Maybe that's why it was so appealing to western audience.
space dandy is shit you fucking westaboo faggots
That was a Sophie's choice type situation.
Momoka would destroy the universe on principle, unless she could rule it.
Simmer down, anon.
No need to flip your shit.
Wow, you mean it's easy to get /a/ to hate something by reverse trolling it all the time?
What a shock, surely the highly intelligent and discerning /a/nons here that enjoy animu & mango would never in their days fall for such an obvious, underhanded scheme.
Fair enough. Dandy is definitely nicer/softer at heart than Momoka, but they're both very single-minded individuals who get distracted easily.
Adelie would have definitely gotten sold off by Space Momoka without her friends to keep her in line.
Normalfag here. I won't allow you to waste away while the maggots squrim an crawl over your chair that you never got up from for weeks.
Please, stop watching SOL when you could be doing the same thing yourself!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thoroughly enjoyable anime, just through panache it sharpened up its quirks and characters to a mind-blowing edge. I've seen much more meaningful and sometimes more artistic animes, better quality animation and more endearing characters, sure. But this Dandy's aim was true; it encompassed the medium and made me kek it bad.
Watching space dandy makes me feel spoilt. It's everything and nothing.
aoty so far
Sabagebu was mediocre at best, MC and masochist bitch were way too annoying and repetitive with their jokes. MC had some good moments though.
Nozaki was easily the best comedy of the year, let alone the season.
I loved this series because each episode felt so distinctly different from one another, and it still managed to handle the B Story it had hidden in there all along quite well.
I really want an artbook and possible movie.
Pic related was probably my favorite episode next to "We're all Fools, so let's Dance, Baby."
Slow and steady was an awesome ep. Just really funny visually and a lot of adventure.
>Dandy changed my life it's way better than the moeshit /a/ fondles themselves over every season
>Also fuck Yuasa
>Also fuck anything that isn't Dandy
Such incredible discussion.
The thread dose have some actual discussion once you get past the baiting.
Stop crying because people a shitting on ping pong. There were people in the thread praising him if you bothered to read it and he did do an ep of SD if you bothered to watch it.
I'm sure you're gonna throw some more aggressive green text at me, but I'm too tired to care. So I'm just going to call you a whiny faggot (which you defiantly are) and go to bed.
Enjoy the rest of your evening, you whiny faggot :^)
What do you have against that again? People aren't allowed to like Space Dandy now? It's requirement for existing to praise it like it's some kind of Jesus? Because it's not. It's a Chinese cartoon.
Planet Limbo for dandiest episode ever?
That, or Planet Planta.
>May be continued?
Don't leave me hanging baby.
Nozaki and Sabagebu
Zankyou no Terror
Momoka or Chiyo
Note to self: don't start a thread with your favorite anime and claim it is AOTS.
People will just try to claim otherwise and say "your favorite anime is not AOTS, MY favorite anime is AOTS"!
Totally agree with how the story is handled. Space Dandy is a show that gives you everything while promising you nothing.
Chameleonian episode might still be my favorite with having watched the whole series. The final episode does add a lot of subtext to some lines in certain episodes (the joke in the beginning of episode one alone is 10x funnier just knowing the truth).
>tfw I went to see my urologist about a possible urinary tract infection and all he did was flick his pompadour back and tell me to 'go with the flow'

So your logic to fight autism with autism?
You have no idea how hard I'm laughing at you right now.
You're laughing at yourself because you transcend autism. I hate you all. You're a bunch of braindead fags who attack threads for other shows and jerk each other off in them. Literally everyone hates you.
your loss is with her, loving being in limbo
Meh. I wasn't in love with it when it started, but it grew on me and became one of my favorites. The last two episodes felt really sub-par to me though. Some of the previous episodes had just been so seriously amazing that my hype for the finally was off the charts and it didn't even come close to delivering on my expectations. I'm thinking maybe the entire courtroom episodes should've been done away with entirely and the finale made into a 2-parter for it to have possibly been better. A lot of the animation in the finale seemed so unpolished too. LIke I get the crazy style and I loved it in some episodes but it seemed too wacky at the end there. Some of it was nice. I don't know. I can't call it AOTS when after the final episode all I could muster up was a "meh" before immediately deleting the episode. I feel like there was a lot of potential there and they messed it up by rushing the ending. The pionium thing coiuld've been eplained in a couple of minutes with a couple of dialogue exchanges instead of taking an entire episode. Sorry. I wanted to love it too, but just, nah.
there are people who think that because of posters like
who will gladly lap up glossy eyed lazy shit with constant fan service and shit exposition and oniiiii chan dialogue instead of something genuinely interesting, fresh, and fun like space dandy. Seriously, its now very clear to me why anime has the stigma it does. Every genre of artistic media has its shit eater genre in which there are some gems but they are over shadowed by the accessible shit trash that the majority loves for some reason. In music its rap, in video games its fps, anime just tends to not be restricted by an particular genre when it comes to this however, seeing as how the autistic moe jerking neckbeards will take a "cute" slice of life clone show over something legitimately original.
fuck anime. Its fucking embarrassing to say I even like the shit with the trasheaters who make up 90% of this board.
well ideally its supposed to work like this
people who like thing A graviatate to threads concerning thing A, ya following me? Then we have anomalies like you who for some reason dislike thing A yet find their way into the thread to shit talk Thing A.
Yeah, manime for real men such as yourself! Not that stupid moe stuff, no, mature entertainment for mature audiences.
>look at your post
>see AOTS is something called Sabagebu
>think "gee there's no way its some waifu moe shit that will make me literally cringe my fucking teeth out if i google image search it
imagine my suprise
why does /a/ have such fucking god awful taste? Do you like anything that isnt cringe waifu onniiii chan fan service garbage?
>daily reminder that anime was directly inspired by western cartoons, thus anime directed towards western audiences are vastly better than the ching chong potato weeb shit you see all the time
Oh, you really do take 4chan this seriously.
>glossy eyed lazy shit with constant fan service and shit exposition and oniiiii chan dialogue
YOu didn't watch it. You dismissed it immediately because you saw a panty shot somewhere or because you thought the character designs were too cute. You are the single worst sort of poster on /a/; the kind who spouts a bunch of bullshit about a show they haven't even watched and dismisses entire genres because you think you're too good for them. Time for a reality check, mate. You're wasting your life watching Japanese cartoons and talking about them with strangers on an anonymous image board. Right now you're reminding me of the typical KlK poster these days who replies to anyone who makes any criticism of that show with "literally troll who can't say anything" because admitting there was some flaw with hteir favorite series would damge their fragile ego.
Space Dandy was pretty good, but the ending was really weak and a lot of other the episodes were also.
that animation is making my eyes bleed
So there are actually people who think this is mediocre
is anime of the year?
fucking christ what the fuck is this backwards world I am in.
Not Space Dandy. Jesus Christ what the fuck is wrong with you? The entire plot of the series was contained within small parts of 2 episodes and that one. It's barely even an ending at all because the series itself barely even has a plot. Try reading the thread where I already explained.
>was very weak
You don't even give it a single fucking chance and you call it shit.
You don't see a single episode or you just start watching it by the mentality: "It'll be shit", then vomit your retarded arguments everywhere to look as oldfag as possible.
I bet my fucking ass that you do the same shit on /v/, where also judge a game without playing it, your post is fucking oozing from it.
Does it surprise anyone that /a/ has a large population of real life weeaboos now?
>24 minutes of pure hand drawn movie quality animation
Well of course, they like what Japan likes. And anyone with a brain KNOWS Japan has the shittiest taste in everything. That's why good shows don't last and cancerous cutesy mindless garbage gets season after season. Otaku are literally cancerous people. That's why the are the outcasts of Japan.
shit posting is quintessentially 4chan and my joke that I posted isn't going to have anymore or less of an impact on impressionable 'newfriends' than any of the other blatant shit slinging going on here.
But you sure are noble with your 'protecter of muh board culture'-shtick
You should share your unlimited wisdom with all those moe shows at the bottom of the sales list every season.
Where do all those "experts" come from who thin that everything with some cute girls will automatically sell thousands of copies?
Pic related, one of the worst selling shows this season.
Rurumo and Dandy S2 were my favorites
