    "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 tenth official talkback for the world premiere of Space Dandy, only on Toonami on Adult Swim at 11:30 PM EST. Oddly there is no youtube upload from the Toonami people for the episode 10 commercial this week, but we do know that this week includes Meow's family, a time loop ("there's always tomorrow"...har har, BONES!) and giant robots, which can make anything better! In your heart, you know it's true.


    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 Alas, between his outdated tech and Dandy's carefree lifestyle, QT seems fated to not be listened to or taken seriously.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. She's also a super competent fighter and hasn't really appeared in enough episodes. Drat.

    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?

    He MOVED OUT of his TARDIS because it was TOO CRAMPED.

    He does MORE MAGIC THINGS than TRUMPY.

    PLANET EARTH is BLUE, and there's SOMETHING HE CAN DO.

    He is the MOST INTERESTING MAN in the UNIVERSE.

    Last time: a planet of plants aplenty. And some nice musical interludes.

    It's Go-Lion! Kind of.

    Not a LFO, not a KFL, but an ALE.

    And a CORE.

    I hope you kept the warranty.

    When did this become a crossover of Gundam and GaoGaiGar?

    Hmm, cold opening. That's new.

    I think I could use some ALE myself.

    Meow's playing Galaga on his phone app. LOL

    "Is it me, or have we not caught any aliens in forever?"
    I don't think it's you.

    Oh, a small planet somewhere in the vicinity of Betelgeuse.

    His real name is Mew? Oh, so he's not a Betelgeusian, he's a Pokemon.

    Ah, the son who doesn't want to follow the family business. Classic story.

    And he even has a hometown sweetheart.

    When you own the factory, you can't get fired for screwing on the job. ;)

    Dad, stop talking about boobies in front of my friends! It's embarrassing!

    Does this planet have a Groundhog Day?

    Wait, it's July 8th again, and everythings happening the same way. Groundhog Day loop?

    8 = infinity symbol on its side.

    108 = a number we've seen several times in anime and other works.
