Space Dandy Meets Galaga


Quote:
A gameplay video for the mobile game Space Galaga, the recreation of the classic Galaga video game with elements from BONES' Space Dandy anime, began streaming on Friday.

Bandai Namco Games created the game that the character Meow dreams about in the anime. As in the anime, the player take on quests to capture rare aliens. The anime's Aloha Oe ship appears in the game, and players can enhance and customize their ships with their winnings. Players can also compete against each other. The bosses in the game are the giant aliens and ships from the anime.

The free-to-play game (with fees for some in-game items) will debut this year in Apple's App Store for iOS and Google Play for Android devices.

Watched episode 1 on Hulu Plus subtitled. So the whole series in one episode?

A very fun show, looking forward to more!

I am interested in how they will explain the ending of the last episode; or maybe each episode will have a similar ending. Looking forward for the next episode.

By the way, thank you for being on topic.

oddly enough the Japanese version gives a possible explanation for it in the ending song of all things.


if you haven't seen the Japanese version, the ending song brings up the idea of
[Show spoiler]parallel worlds/other dimensions


anyway, cant wait for episode 2 this weekend.

I'd like to see them ignore the ending and maybe even turn it into a running gag in a sort of comedic take on the early Aeon Flux shorts.

Just finished the first episode and felt it was just very average. I guess expected more. I'll stick with it a little longer though.

Something I'm hoping for myself. Sort of like why Kenny's always back the next episode.

HM did not like at all. The show looks great but the plot well what little it had so far was just boring as crap. I was bored watching the thing maybe as more airs I'll care more about the cast and won't get bored as the plot I hope picks up.

Kind of doubt it's some kind of spiritual successor trilogy series like the whole Girls With Guns trilogy. And also to note that Shinichiro Watanabe also Directed Kids On The Slope.

I was not too impressed with this second episode. The first episode was funnier, and more interesting.

It is also a cultural situation. Ramen shops are big in Japan; some jokes are being lost in translation and through differing culture.

I am curious what everyone else thinks.

Yeah there's been a lot of conversation about that on the internet.

LINK One of the animators actually made a comment about the dub. I think all of these sites have blown the comments wayyyyy out of proportion though. The one I'm linking to especially.

Personally I liked it a lot. I just let the cultural differences go. Ya know?

I'm sure there are plenty of times that things in english movies were 'messed up' when they were translated to other languages. It happens.

I'm just glad that we have people skilled enough to translate these thing for us at all!

Plus, I love that other cultures are different. How boring would it be if we all had the same humor, same jokes, same content in shows etc, etc.

But that's just me.

I am not derailing the series, I am commenting on the fact that series might be funnier in Japanese than in English. I have been viewing the series in its original language with subtitles.

Your link makes me worry even more now. According to this animator, it is not just missing out on the joke, but on important details of the storyline (in the dub).

Thank you for the link.

oh no. haha. That's not what I was trying to imply. I totally understand what you mean. And you're probably spot on with that.

Episode 5 was absolutely stunning. Amazing music, touching, incredibly funny with the transformations.

This is heading in the right direction.

I liked Episode 5 a lot too, it was a great change of pace. The tone of the ep was quite reminiscent of Bebop and Outlaw Star. Loved the Galaxy Express references throughout too.

It's clear that Watanabe is giving the rotating directors a lot of freedom to stamp their visions on each episode. Feels like each episode of Space Dandy offers something new and different as a result.

People only fall into the trap of men should do this and women should do this if they the person allows it.

My mother taught me many things. Sewing, cooking, housework, and many other skills that most men regard as feminist. Do I care? Nope, because at least I don't have to have someone do that stuff for me. My father taught me things that were considered masculine, but does that make me think women should be in the kitchen making me food? No...

Both sexes are more equal now then they have ever been. But society chooses to put labels on things. Again if you fall into the belief that you have to think and agree with society then that is on you. If you don't like the show it is a simple and not watching it.

But back to the show. I personally hope it does well that way it'll get a main spread release in Japan and in other markets.

I agree.

I really enjoyed the last three episodes, especially the fifth. I hope this is the direction that Watanabe is shooting for: an "intergalactic Don Quijote."

I wasn't a big fan of the zombie episode (although it did remind of the Bebop episode "Toys in the Attic"). The last episode however was spectacular. I'm looking forward to see where the series goes.
