    "Life comes at you fast, just like a raging current! I don't fight it! Going against the flow? Just means you're swimming in place. One day you're too tired to paddle, and suddenly you drown! Whole thing was pointless and now you're dead, THE END! Now, going with the flow is where it's at. And that's...the dandy way to live."

    Welcome to the twelfth official talkback for the world premiere of Space Dandy, only on Toonami on Adult Swim at 11:30 PM EST. We're near the conclusion of the first season, but that won't be the end - Dandy will be back this July for more. For now, we've got this episode, which had a really weird preview at the end of last week. Moreso than usual, I mean.

    The Characters of Space Dandy


    Dandy

    [​IMG]

    Space Dandy is a dandy guy...in space! He operates on the scale of the universe and prides himself on "going with the flow", never worrying about the small details. As a professional "alien hunter" Dandy tries to make a living traveling the universe, discovering new alien life for money. Or screwing it up and dying or going broke. Good thing this show laughs in the face of continuity, huh?

    QT
    [​IMG]

    One day, Dandy walked into a secondhand robot shop looking for a competent droid companion like R2-D2. What he walked out with was QT, a "glorified broom bot" and yet quite possibly the only crew member of the Aloha Oe with any common sense. Alas, between his outdated tech and Dandy's carefree lifestyle, QT seems fated to not be listened to or taken seriously. Will QT's day of triumph ever come?

    Meow
    [​IMG]

    A native of the planet Betelgeuse (and most definitely not a space cat), Meow has become Dandy's companion on his spacefaring adventures - not that he's proven himself very useful at all!

    Scarlet
    [​IMG]

    By day Scarlet is an inspector at the space alien registration center Dandy works for, acknowledging the discovery of new life...or crushing the dreams of hapless fools who bring in common species.

    Honey
    [​IMG]

    She works at "Hooters in Space" and...well, that's still it.

    Professor Gel
    [​IMG]

    A servant of the Gogol Empire, Professor Gel is quite possibly the space gorilla with the weirdest hair and the most inappropriate spaceship in the universe. With his minion Bea at his side, Gel chases Dandy across the universe, convinced he is a dangerous adversary. Despite possessing high intelligence and a fleet at his command though, he finds ways to fail spectacularly. Now that he's been sucked into a black hole, is there any way he could possibly do worse?! Only time will tell.

    Commodore Perry
    [​IMG]

    The ruler of the mighty Gogol Empire, which is currently battling the Jaicro Empire in an epic war for control of the entire universe - not that this has much of anything to do with Dandy's escapades. For what reason does he order the pursuit of Space Dandy?

    Hey guys. Just so you guys don't wonder where I've gone, I want to make a little announcement: I've decided to cut back on the commentary.

    It's been fun doing this over the past year or so, but lately I've discovered that constantly commenting on six shows in a row is taking its toll on me and my viewing experience. I just find that it's really distracting to simultaneously watch these shows, think of things to comment about them, and to read the comments of other people as I'm watching them, and I don't think I'm enjoying the shows as much as I could.

    Therefore, I won't be participating in the live commentary of Space Dandy, Blue Exorcist, or Blue Lagoon from now on. I'll still comment on Bleach, Shippuden and One Piece since they're relatively slow and easy to follow and/or I already know what's going to happen in them (and since riffing is pretty much the only reason I watch the first two to begin with)

    So we'll see how it goes. If I'm up for it, I may do live comments on the other shows every now and then, but we'll see. And I might do overall reviews of each episode of SD, BE, and BL after they've aired, but again, we'll see.

    He has CONQUERED MORE MARTIANS than SANTA CLAUS.

    His HAIR has ONE-SIXTH of EARTH'S GRAVITY.

    VOGONS ask him for LIFTS.

    He is the MOST INTERESTING MAN in the UNIVERSE.

    Last time: Something about an overdue book, lost memories, and then an overdue VHS tape from Blockbuster.

    This time: Karma Karma Karma Karma Karma Chameleon

    Last time: books, tapes, and other storage media. Except I can't remember any of that happening.

    Looks like a dog/seal/manta ray combo.

    A shapeshifter alien...

    He's seeing dollar signs. Or capital W's with lines through them.

    TO A PLANET THAT LOOKS LIKE IT HAS CHAMELEONS!

    ...uhhh, FUNi, you guys accidentally capitalized the second letter in "planet" there.

    Great, another anime where everyone goes fishing. Hopefully nobody gets tentacle raped.

    It's not a chameleoneonialien?

    Scarlet's scary when she's angry!

    I'm guessing the Sochinoko is the Chameleolean...whoop, there it is.

    So fishing addiction is a thing in this world.

    And those idiots, took them that long to figure out someone else was there, and he gave himself away.

    Dr. Eyepatch is displeased.

    This promises to be jovially confusing.

    That Chameleowatzit makes a pretty funky couch.

    Seriously, Dandy? That turns you on?

    Not. A good. Idea.
