Space Dandy's narrator has always been a third person omniscient narrator. Knowing everything is the very definition of omniscient. Whether there's a record of the event doesn't matter. The narrator knows because he has a god-tier level of knowledge.

I can see why the little book used Dr. Gel to think.

QT has data of other universes but lacks the necessary processing power.

Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

All this temporal and inter-dimensional hijinks around Dandy may not be coincidence.

Personally, I felt it was supposed to symbolize the erasure of memories that most of the cast had of the events pertaining to Dandy and his crew getting their hands on the book (from the initial planning of the heist to steal it to Scarlett opening the box), with the color returning to Dandy and his crew once they learned the cause of their memory loss (and the details of the situation that they have memory of).

My understanding is that it was planned to be split cour - 13 episodes now, 13 in July. I doubt they'd give a series like Space Dandy more than 26 episodes even if it's apparently popular in the West.

Why? If the production committee wants more, they'll make more.

Space Dandy doesn't strike me as a series that could run for that long. It could get another season at a later time, sure, but running uninterrupted for a year? I'm not sure it's possible to do that while maintaining that kind of animation quality.

Considering how much funding came from the West for this show, as far I have understood, I would think that if the West wants it, it's going to happen. CN ratings have been quite good as far as I have seen.

Episode 12 takes place on "A Planet that Looks Like It Has Chameleons" where Dandy hopes to catch a shapeshifting alien worth 100 million.

In the meantime, QT begins to get obsessed with fishing which ended up becoming kinda surreal.
As a result, QT unintentionally catches their target, the chameleonian(?) disguised as a black tsuchinoko and transforms into an old man over night. As a result, a hilarious chase ensues combined with the alien disguising itself as each member of the crew. This results in a hilarious "Who wants to be a Millionaire?" Style Quiz to determine who the real Dandy is resulting in an even crazier identity crisis that ends in a simple Dandy-like method.

Dr. Gel falling into the an even worse identity crisis as a result of capturing the chameleon instead of Dandy and leading to a pseudo-philosophical monologue by the narrator was even more hilarious.

Overall, this episode was dry in the first half but really picked up in the second half when they realized their little target was on the Aloha Oe.

Next episode seems like it will be a nice melancholic episode for QT.
It'll be interesting to see how that plays out.

The entire episode felt very tied to Dr. Who to me. There's the Library planet (Silence of the Library, Season 4, Episode 8) and then there's the alien that gets forgotten when people see it (The Silence, Season 5). Very Doctor Who'ish episode imho.

"Yes! Black Tsuchinoko! Yes!" I think QT is my favorite. Such a hilarious little Robot.

Also... "Is that your Final Dandy?"

I always thought QT was a girl. Next episode she falls in love with a robot girl. Twist: QT is gay

That was last week's episode. The episode that Aggelos is referring to is this week's episode (i.e. the one with the shapeshifter).

Legendary anime screenwriter Dai Sato shares his inspiration at Anime Boston:
http://www.dailydot.com/fandom/dai-s...p-space-dandy/

Quote:
Sato told the eager audience at Anime Boston that Space Dandy, the much-touted reunion production of the creative team behind Bebop and Champloo, began as just that: a wish to get the gang back together. Watanabe told Sato he wanted to make a comedy, as part of a desire to break away from his association with drama. The project was planned with a simultaneous worldwide release in mind: This was done not only as a way to ward off fansubbing and piracy, but more importantly because it would also give more fans an opportunity to connect and enjoy the show across international lines through the medium of social media.

Sato talked extensively about the influence of the moe movement on recent anime series. Moe, or "cute" culture, examines ideas about art, feminity, and thematic complexity vs aesthetic and design. Space Dandy draws influence from the energy and debate around moe culture, and the idea that "maybe you don't even need a story" to have a story.

"We thought of Space Dandy as a kind of counter-approach to this overall trend," Sato said, citing the popular Puella Madoka Magica as an example of a moe-inspired anime that went deeper but was "kinda heavy."
