And the dub supposedly translated something Honey said to Dandy wrong? And then someone spread a post around online explaining how Honey was supposed to be a super complex character and that was some sort of hint or whatever? Even back then I thought “How the hell do you know that for a fact? There’s only been 1 episode”. Then an entire season passes and season 2 gets 2 episodes in and Honey is nothing more than the same waitress she was in episode 1. I mean way to talk out of your ass, right?
Casual PSA for you guys, last night’s Space Dandy was directed by Masaaki Yuasa! Masaaki Yuasa is an interesting director because all of his animation direction has a very distinct style to it. It seems to be ‘bad’ but it’s actually extremely stylistic.
His most famous works are Kemonozume, Kaiba, Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei (Aka The Tatami Galaxy), Ping Pong, Mind Game, and he just recently released an animated short funded through kickstarter called Kick-Heart. Also, he just happened to direct an episode of Adventure Time, titled “Food Chain.”
I also noticed that many of you were saying things like, “this episode had very poor animation.” and unfortunately, I’m going to tell you that in this case, you are wrong. This episode might have been conventionally ugly, but the actual animation quality was quite incredible! So please don’t say this episode had poor animation, because it didn’t okay? I’m not infringing your write to say the episode was UGLY, for the record. Yuasa’s style can be a tough pill to swallow, but I just felt like I had to speak up.
