Mikan Watch #87: Space Dandy

Posted by DiGiKerot in Miracle Train at February 26, 2014 on 9:56 pm

In the bottom-left corner of this scene in episode seven of Space Dandy, AKA the episode which is not a little like the movie Redline. It doesn’t actually say Mikan on it, but hey, there’s clearly an orange on it, so I’ll claim it.

I have astonishingly little to say about Space Dandy. I, on aggregate, enjoy it. It’s a little difficult to know what you are going to be getting into every week, not just on and episode by episode basis, but on a half-by-half one – that’s particularly the case with the eighth episode, where the show presents a particularly hard tonal shift between the A and B parts. The unpredictability of the tone and content of the show is one of the things I like about it, but I do sometimes wonder if throwing up a different title card at the midway point, forcing an effective tonal-reset by suggesting the start of a different story, would have relieved some of the complaints leveled at the show on occasion.

Also, Bea has the best shaped head.

You know, when I said “I’m not entirely convinced that Akari isn’t just some amnesiac girl they just random picked up at some point” a short while back, I thought I was just making a grammatical error I really shouldn’t have (It’s “Randomly”, Mr. Kerot).

Whoops. Turns out I’m correct. I’m really not sure if I should be terrified about being on the same wavelength as the creators of Miracle Train or not…

Oh, well – at least I had absolutely no inkling of the fact that Akari is, in fact, not a young girl. I guess that means I can, at least, be a little secure in the knowledge that I’m not entirely insane.

Who’s The Daddy?

Toucho, apparently.

This week on Miracle Train, they pick up a runaway loli. Whilst, I’m still not entirely convinced that’s not how they ended up “acquiring” Akari, the result here is a whole bunch of statements which come across as being very, very wrong both in context and out…
