Well that was strange. Good and strange. I liked it, and in some ways it's been the most alien a planet the gang have ever visited.

Ok, so the staff must have gotten hold of some REALLY good s**t!


The next episode looks like another Bebop-inspired episode.

Either that, or someone made the common mistake of confusing Shinichiro Watanabe with Shinichi Watanabe (the director of Excel Saga) and accidentally have delivered to Shinichiro the good stuff that the other Nabeshin usually uses when he makes his anime.

You might want to give Kaiba a look see and then see if the influences being homaged here make a little more sense.

So I'm assuming Kaiba's a really old anime/manga? This episode it based on it? If you don't mind, can I get a minor summery of it? Nothing long, just sum it up in about 2-3 sentences.

Kaiba is a weird 2008 series directed by Yuasa, who tends to work with Choi who worked on this episode. Do check it out, because it's such a fantastic surreal experience.

Seems to be pretty solid confirmation (via Watanabe on a radio show) that Space Dandy is 26 eps, split cour.

Well, this episode started differently compared to usual what with the into focusing on the war between the two empires. A failed weapon leads to a blast of that unstable element mentioned in like episode 2 or 3.

When the trio visits Meow's home, the blast hits the planet causing an endless time loop to begin. Blockhead, Bonehead, and Pinhead eventually notice that they can predict the future and think they have superpowers on the hundred-somethingth loop only to be corrected by the narrator.

Still nice to get some character development for Meow in the second half with some insights on his relationship with his family. It was actually quite nice.

But then it cut to the heroic battle for tomorrow between man and paper calendar.

Ohh...and Katie coming out of the closet to Meow was just too much. My sides were in pain...my sides...

Seriously, though. Those parts with Meow and his dad were simple but effective and powerful. I have to hand it to the staff. That was a great episode and a type of story I generally tend to enjoy.

Next episode...an overdue library book triggers a large scale war...?

For moment there I thought we are getting plot progression on why the Gogol empire wanted Dandy. Its the same energy mentioned by Dr. Gel in episode 1.

Well the Jaicro empire Ideon-Voltes combining- Gaigaogar robot which is their ultimate weapon. Dandy being worst at everything except being a Mech pilot I'm expecting a fight later.

Betelgeuse produces nuts, screws and learning computers... The last part maybe Jaicro outsources fromthem.

Meow's nickname is Mii. He really is a cat.

That was an excellent episode. Not only was the whole time loop handled wonderfully, but the whole story of Meow and his working class origins was well written and interesting.
