The staff and cast of the Space Dandy anime confirmed at their AnimeJapan panel on Saturday that the second season will premiere in July in Japan. Although the members had previously indicated that the anime will last longer than a quarter of a year, the anime studio Bones had not officially announced the second season or its timeframe until now.
The story of the anime revolves around Dandy (Junichi Suwabe/Ian Sinclair), 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 (Uki Satake (9nine)/Alison Viktorin) and the dimwit alien Meow (Hiroyuki Yoshino/Joel McDonald) he picked up along the way, he comes into contact with new planets and their inhabitants.
Funimation is streaming the series online with Japanese audio, and the company also has home video rights for the series. The anime is premiering first on Adult Swim's Toonami block in the United States with an English dub, before it airs in Japan. Episode 13 is debuting next week.
