SPACE DANDY

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Rated / Dvd & blu- ray -

SEA­SON ONE

Re­lease Date: OUT NOW!

2014 | 12 | Blu- ray/ DVD This an­ime spoof space opera is from Shinichiro Watan­abe, best known for his ac­tion- noir SF show Cow­boy Bebop, though Dandy’s a feath­er­weight in com­par­i­son. It fea­tures a trio of thinlysketched space ad­ven­tur­ers: the tit­u­lar character, a strut­ting dandy with a gi­ant pom­padour hairdo, plus a slobby cat- alien and a fusspot droid. Whim­si­cal ad­ven­tures abound. The show grad­u­ally finds its feet with a witty zom­bie episode, an ex­cit­ing ro­bot re­volt and a trib­ute to the trippy Euro clas­sic Fan­tas­tic Planet. In­ter­mit­tent fun, but thor­oughly dis­pos­able.
