Space Dandy is a space hunter, someone who is paid to search for new, undiscovered alien species. It's an industry where the prize goes to the person who finds aliens the fastest. Dandy searches unknown planets for strange beings with his companions, QT the worn-out robot and Meow from Betelgeuse. Meanwhile, they're being chased by minions of the Gogol Empire, for reasons that are still a mystery.
Catch the show both with English dub and Japanese original version with subtitles in a collector s package!

...at least, that's the basic jumping-off point for the series. What follows is said three characters getting humorously sidetracked by various things, from a wormhole in a ramen shop's dispenser to an existential crisis brought about by the characters' sudden zombification. And that's just within the first four episodes.
Space Dandy already sits well within my good graces by being easily summed up as "Hitchhiker's Guide crossed with Cowboy Bebop with Johnny Bravo as the protagonist", and while I could leave the review there, there really is a lot more to it than that. The animation ranges from spectacular to appropriately low-detail during the show's sillier moments, and it all creates a look that seems like a grandiose space opera when standing still, yet plays itself for comedy while in motion, such as a massive space battle getting glossed over by the show's narrator in favour of focussing back on Dandy's crew. Add to that some great fourth-wall breaking humour and some pretty funny deliberate continuity flubs regarding the state of the main characters (The likes of which I haven't seen since The Young Ones), and you have one of the most interestingly bizarre and accessibly-funny anime shows I've seen in ages.
If you enjoyed the humour of Hitchhiker's Guide, the only-slightly-serious-but-mostly-cartoonishly-silly style of anime like Kill La Kill and Little Witch Academia, and/or if you enjoyed the closely-focussed sci-fi setting of Cowboy Bebop (A fitting comparison, seeing as it was from the same creator), then you would do well to give this series a go!
As a side note, this version of the DVD that I'm reviewing also comes with an art book, and while this does jack the retail price up to terrifying levels in brick-and-mortar shops, it does still suffice as a fun little bonus for those who are into finding out about the particular artistic subtleties of this series.
if you love the feel of 90s anime then you will love this, i am not a fan of much of the new style of anime and knew straight away i would enjoy this coming from such legendary animators.
with this special edition you get a 195 page art book with tons of content and best of all, it comes in full english writing as opposed to many other special edition animes that tend to have japanese writing.
the blu ray displays a 1080p screen ratio and has english dub and subs to go with the original japanese voices, although the english dub is amazing as cowboy bebop and samurai champloo was.
i would highly recommend this product, especially to new comers of anime. buy this for the amazing high def version plus the art book, you will not be disappointed.
The extra book is a nice bonus and the digital gallery on the discs are fun to watch.
