Space anime are rather rare these days, and something of this calibre is a total nope. While the year 2013 brought in many interesting anime, there was still a lack of something totally wack or out of this world. But no worry, here comes Space Dandy. The following teaser was revealed at Otakon.
The outstanding visual effects and the epic space battles along with plethora of aliens present in the series make it really exciting. The story revolves around an adventurer named “Dandy” who makes a living travelling around the galaxy hunting aliens for a living.
The anime is not only created by Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop), It is also co directed by Shingo Natsume (Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos), and the story done by Keiko Nobumoto (Wolf’s Rain, Cowboy Bebop, Macross Plus), Dai Sato (Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Eureka 7, Ergo Proxy) and Kimiko Ueno (Shin Chan). As for the aliens themselves, they are set to be designed by plethora of different designers.
As you expect from the creators of cow boy bebop, this show is not so kid friendly, which comes off as a surprise. See this Boob loaded English trailer to get an idea of what I mean.
