Space Dandy to air First in the West on Adult Swim’s Toonami.


For many years, when it came to this block – many have given some respect to what that block did in the past.

For its second run on Adult Swim, Toonami was going to move forward.

So now, the first (of several announcements) from Jason DeMarco has come forward. The first being the world wide excusive dubbing rights (along with Funimation) to Space Dandy, created by Shinichiro Watanabe, who claim to fame includes the wonderful Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo. The biggest news that it will air at least 2 and a half months BEFORE Japan airs the show. And the other big news, the expansion of Toonami to 11:30 starting Jan 4th.

Here’s more from the announcement:

First, we are proud to announce that Toonami will be WORLD PREMIERING the new series from Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo) and Studio BONES (FMA, Soul Eater, many more), SPACE DANDY! SPACE DANDY is a 26 episode series that will be premiering in the U.S. BEFORE it premieres in Japan (yep, you read that right)! Details on that to follow soon.

Oh, and when will it premiere? Sooner than you think- January 4th, at 11:30 PM.

“Did I just read 11:30?”

Yep, you read that right. Space Dandy will kick off an expanded 6-1/2 HOUR TOONAMI broadcast every Saturday. Toonami Faithful, we got our extra half hour!

Look for a Toonami Retrospective coming to Toon Barn in a couple of days…

There will be more news from this block very soon.
