Space Dandy Begins on Wakanim Sunday
posted on by Andrew Osmond
BONES' science-fiction comedy anime Space Dandy will begin streaming on the Wakanim site on Sunday January 5 at 3.30 p.m., with successive instalments on each following Sunday at the same time. The series is directed by Shinichiro Watanabe (Macross Plus, Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Kids on the Slope). Anime Limited previously announced it would give the series a home release later in 2014.
The show's title character is 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.
Yasuyuki Okamura (City Hunter 2) is performing the theme song "Viva Namida" and another song, "Healthy Merci."
