Space Dandy

Shinichiro Watanabe’s new series, Space Dandy, has started, and although I wasn’t particularly excited by the trailers, I was still going to watch this because it’s by Watanabe. After one episode, although I loved the crazy sudden ending, I’m not that sold on the setting and especially the main characters – not getting a Cowboy Bebop or Samurai Champloo vibe at all. But like I said, it’s Watanabe, so I’ll give the series at least a few episodes to see if it develops into something that’s more interesting. And I’m all for sexiness in any form of media, but this “Boobies” stuff just feels juvenile – I’m hoping the show starts to leave that stuff behind.
