Space Dandy is the latest outer space comedy anime adventure from director Shinichiro Watanabe the man that brought us classics like Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo. Since the announcement at Otakon, the officialÂ websiteÂ Â launched unveiling much clearer promotional visuals, character artwork, and the story.
Our lead character Dandy is a human that travels the cosmos in search of new alien races, and gets paid well in the process. Itâ€™s his mission to seek out new planets and new life forms before anyone else. Heâ€™s laid back, and has yet to find his dream.
He’s joined by two companions that he picked up along the way:
QT prideful bucket of bolts cleaning robot, despite his claim of being â€œHigh poweredâ€. As his function might suggest, QT likes tidiness.
Many people believe Meow is a genetically altered cat, but in realty heâ€™s an alien hailing from the Betelgeuse star. Meow is a carefree dimwitted alien and unlike normal cats, he knows how to operate a cell phone.
As previous reported in the reveal article; the opening theme song will be performed by Yasuyuki Okamura whom also did the opening for City Hunters 2. He will be performing two theme songs titled Viva Namida and Healthy Merci. Also, Okamura will be working on a collaboration with the series’ staff to release an animated special titled Â “Yasuyuki Okamura meets Space Dandy”. Space Dandy will be hitting the air waves this January.
