Title: New Anime from the creator of Cowboy Bebop to air on Toonami BEFORE Japan!!
Post by: Toffee on October 28, 2013, 09:05:08 PM
That's right! Shinichiro Watanabe, creator of critically series Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, and Kids on the Slope, has a new anime coming out in 2014 called "Space Dandy"

A dandy bounty hunter in space with boobies and butts? I'm in!

In all seriousness though, this definitely looks to have as much love and dedication that Watanabe has poured into his other works and promises to be nothing short of amazing.

BUT! That's not the best news! For the first time EVER, an anime will premiere in the west BEFORE Japan! That's right, Space Dandy will have its worldwide premier on Toonami BEFORE Japan! This huge news because, as far as I can tell, this has never been done before.

It really shows how much Watanabe respects the west (as is evidenced in his series having multiple influences and references to western culture) and recognizes how much his series have been a huge hit on our shores.

I believe this guy expresses my feelings on this accurately.

So yeah, this is definitely a huge deal, and if successful, will definitely make Japanese animators and producers see the west as a bigger potential market for even more anime.
