Space Dandy Season 2 to Simulcast Same-Time-As-Japan Across Asia on AnimaxJun 23rd 2014
Singapore, 21 June 2014 – Space Dandy is back! In the second season, expect a whole lot more aliens, adventures and hilarious space comedy from Dandy and his entourage.
Fans of the retro-futuristic, sci-fi comedy in Asia will be able to catch the exciting new season exclusively on Animax at the same time as Japan. Space Dandy follows the madcap adventures of a carefree space explorer and his two sidekicks – a rundown robot named QT and Meow the cat-looking space alien, as they travel the galaxy in search of new aliens. Each new species that Dandy discovers earns him a hefty reward but he has to be quick on his feet because it's first come – first served!
Viewers can also catch up on the first season before the new series premiere with the Space Dandy Season 1 (Marathon Special) on Saturday, 5 July from 8.30pm to 2.30am (SG, MY, HK, PH, TW) / 7.30pm to 1.30am (JKT, BKK).
The dazzling anime is directed by Shingo Natsume (Fullmetal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos) with Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop) serving as general director, and produced by Tokyo based anime studio, Bones, Inc.

Space Dandy Season 2 premieres on 6 July, airing on Sundays at 10pm (SG, MY, HK, PH, TW) / 9pm (JKT, BKK) in a same-time-as-Japan simulcast, first and exclusively on Animax.
