Space Dandy Episode #02 (Dubbed) Anime Review

I was super excited for Space Dandy this week, after hearing that it would be directed by Sayo Yamamoto, one of my favorite anime directors, and one I’m exceptionally familiar with. I can’t say I’m disappointed either, because this episode ended up with a lot of Yamamoto’s signature flourishes, as well as a funny and yet somehow poignant script from Dai Sato, who worked with Yamamoto on her Woman Called Fujiko Mine series.

The story this time is that Dandy and crew are… wait, aren’t they all supposed to be dead? Never mind that: The episode starts up with Dandy and Dr. Gel completely unharmed, and Meow as part of Dandy’s crew as if he wasn’t just an alien he met in a breastaurant. We see Dandy in an alien registration center, trying to turn in a specimen for money, but the woman who works there, Scarlett, isn’t having any of Dandy’s generic aliens. He’s going to have to find an actual rare species, or he can’t expect any money.
