Shinichiro Watanabe Reveals Space Dandy Comedy TV Anime (Updated) - News - Anime News Network

Director Shinichiro Watanabe (Macross Plus, Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Kids on the Slope) revealed at his Q&A panel at Otakon on Saturday that he is directing the Space Dandy anime at the anime studio BONES. Watanabe said the anime was "not an anime to be taken seriously." It will be the first comedic TV anime series that he will direct. The show will premiere in January 2014.

Since Watanabe is involved that basically means that I'm obligated to watch this. The designs look cool and we've never gotten a straight up comedy from him so I'm looking forward to it.

"Space Dandy is a dandy guy in the space."

As any Watanabe series is, it is an instant watch. Comedy. I am ready ( ; w;)/

Dandy is so fucking dandy.

I was smiling throughout out the entire trailer. I was definitely not expecting this at all. It's got a certain charm to it. Looking forward to it.

A comedy anime made by the man who directed Cowboy Beebop and Samurai Champloo, two of my favorite anime? Definately have to check it out

It's so strange how every time a character has one, they typically turn out to be my favorite in their series.

Re: Space Dandy (Watanabe Shinichiro's new anime)

It might just be me but I feel like there's a certain "retro" aesthetic going on. Dandy seems like a character from the 80's or 90's, and I actually really like that.

Re: Space Dandy (Watanabe Shinichiro's new anime)

Yeah, there's definitely a throwback vibe in the trailer.

By the by, I'll have to look for a source, but apparently there are actually a lot of designers, each being assigned to conceptualize their own planet and its inhabitants.

Heard the music is the same way, with a lot of composers brought on so they can match the vibe of the locales.
