Space Dandy as a big hit in the west, but how well did it do in Japan. Did it sell well?
>>
>>121176783
It didn't even do that well in America. The ratings came crashing down at some point.

And no, the series was a huge flop in Japan. Both seasons averaged about a thousand copies, which is extremely poor.
>>
>>121176868
Wasn't it the highest watched show on Toonami?
>>
>>121176783
>Did it sell well?
No, the japs don't have a reddit site.

Unfortunately the nips were too smart to watch this pile of shit

that doesn't exactly make it any better though.

>in the west

What are you even talking about?

Why don't you just say North America instead of ''west''?
>>
>>121179611
Europe and Australia also count as the west.
>>
>>121176783
>Space Dandy as a big hit in the wes
Not really
>>
>>121179805

And that's the thing, friend.

The show was ''popular'' only in NA, not in the ''west''.
>>
>>121179845
How do you know?
>>
>>121179845
It never even ran in Europe, Japan and American hates the European market.
>>
>>121179805
France is hundreds of times bigger than NA for importing and airing anime and Dandy sold like shit there. Not that it sold any better anywhere else mind you.
>>
>>121179840
>dubbed immediantly
Uhh. I can explain.
>>
>>121176868
>>121177101
>>121179611
>>121179840
why? does people not like fun and space adventurs, this is my favourite anime
i want a season 3
>>
>>121180100
It being dubbed immediately does not mean that it sold well or had good ratings, thats the dumbest assumption I have ever heard.
>>
>>121180082
France has a huge market for manga, but the anime market is garbage.
>>
>>121176952
Toonami's standards are pretty low. It wouldn't be surprising that SD is better than any other show it's airing. It's a wonder that the program still even exists.
>>
>>121176952
Do ratings number in NA matter more than sales of DVDs?
>>
>>121176783
Sold fairly well in America; Japan threw it in the trash because it wasn't CB2
>>
>>121180405
Over 1 million viewers per episode has to count for something
>>
>>121180860
Wouldn't that depend on how much of that profit actually goes back to the Japanese production company? Unless Toonami is willing to fund an anime of its own, like with Big O season 2, I can't really see how it'd change anything.
>>
>>121180705
Isn't Toonami a pay channel? And their free stream runs ads so I would guess that yes, ratings are pretty important because people watching it on the pay channel are people that pay and people watching it on the stream indirectly bring ad revenue. So views do bring them money either way. I'd guess that for shows that air there the DVD sales are secondary (though not unimportant).
>>
Sadly not, would have loved a dandy movie.
Can't be helped.

Pretty sure Toonami did fund Space Dandy
>>
>>121181120
Season 2, yeah.
They brought in big names too but it didn't help much
>>
While I am not sure that anybody here has any valuable insight in the monetization of internationally produced and distributed animation works, I am pretty sure the Jews in power were not satisfied enough with the returns to release more shekels for a movie that was in the options for a while.

>expecting a Watanabe show to have more than 2 seasons
>>
>>121181120

This. People seem to side step this for some reason, but Space Dandy originally started airing on Toonami first and then japan. It was funded by Toonami and was meant for a western Audience and doubly so since the guy behind it is a massive westaboo. I think this is part of the reason it did so bad in japan compared to the west, and thats before you take into account script translations which meant alot of the jokes just plain didn't make sense in japanese.
>>
Even if there isn't a season 3
Season 2 finale is a good ending
>>
>>121181316
>script translations which meant alot of the jokes just plain didn't make sense in japanese.
Yet the songs (expect for Lonely Night) was better in Japanese
>>
>>121179845

Really?

Because i live in Australia and fucking everybody loves dandy and its popular as hell with the anime crowd.

So before you go shitting over everything like the walking, personification of an asshole that you are who doesn't base his facts on anything that isn't covered in feces, actually take the time to remove your head from the 19 feet in your ass it is and realize you don't know shit about the places you're talking about.
>>
>>121181398

Wait, what songs did they make into english? Isn't virtually every song naturally in japanese in both versions?

But yes, japanese lonely nights is trash tier.
>>
>>121181316
Space Dandy was obviously made by Japanese and it's choke-full of Japanese pop culture jokes (unless you think referencing Chargeman Ken is for the American audience).
>>
>>121181455
Jesus, what a typical straya poster
moot was right.
>>
>>121181345
True dat
Still a movie set somewhere in between would have been interesting, I would have liked to see how theyd play the dandyverse in a longer singular plot.
Well won't happen anyways most likely

>gets caught out
>Tries to avoid the subject at hand

You see the difference between me and you is im upfront about being a shit, i don't try to hide it by being some pretentious little shit who is all like "WELL i happen to know that it this product was terrible in these regions because i use "airquotes" over my "words" and don't let people use terms because im hipster as fuck" and then continue to cover my own ass by projecting.

Not even that guy. (if you were up to date with 4chanx you would notice a little new post number above my post)
I'm just saying of course you're from Australia, everyone can already see that from your post style without you saying it.
>>
>>121181832

And i can tell by his post style that he's obviously a massive shitlord. We going to spend all day stating obvious facts or are we going to talk about dandy?

Well you guys can, i gotta get up early to play my chazwazzas.

The songs from the episodes, Lonely Night and the two songs from the musical episode

The creators have hinted multiple times now that season 3 or a movie will probably be coming, its just a matter of when.
>>
>>121181544

It isn't? Chargeman Ken is pretty infamous for that episode where the scientist was a bomb.

Everything sells like shit in France.

Nowadays ouiboos don't buy, they just download.

Should i watch this birdy anime, never seen it and i need to pass the time, it doesn't end in some sad shit, because i hate sad endings.
>>
>>121184617
for DECODE, its worth it. Like anon said, OST and battles are suburb. Character development is neat too, sounds a bit cheesy at times for my tastes though. Overall, its a great anime, and I think the dub is alright.
>>

its kinda sad. but still good

Sad you said?

Ok I'm not watching it, ufck man, i just wanna watch a anime with some mystery behind it, like GiTs or bebop

>>121183764
I haven't bothered to watch the second season yet. The first was good but just kinda mediocre.
>>
>>121185008
S2 has forced "good" ending.
