The first episode went onto Madman's Screening Room on Monday morning the 6th of January at 1:00am AEDT and all future episodes will go online at that time. This comes after the first episode was illegally obtained from Madman's servers and the launch could have ended similar to Kill la Kill.
The story revolves around Dandy, an alien-hunter. His job is to seek out new aliens never seen before, and receives a reward whenever he finds a new species. His mission is to find those new species faster than anyone else as he travels the galaxy. Together with the bucket-of-bolts robot QT and the dimwit alien Meow he picked up along the way, he comes into contact with new planets and their inhabitants.
Space Dandy is a science-fiction comedy series from director Shinichiro Watanabe (Macross Plus, Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Kids on the Slope) and studio BONES. The Japanese version stars Junichi Suwabe as Dandy, Uki Satake as QT, and Hiroyuki Yoshino as Meow. Other cast members include Unshou Ishizuka as Dr. Geru, Kosuke Hatakeyama as Bee, Banjou Ginga as Commodore Perry, Yurin as Honey, and Houko Kuwashima as Scarlett. Masaaki Yajima narrates the series.
Yasuyuki Okamura (City Hunter 2) performs the theme song "Viva Namida" and another song, "Healthy Merci."
