At the recent AnimeJapan event, the Space Dandy panel has confirmed that a second season of the anime will be heading our way in July this year. The cast and crew of the anime confirmed the news at the panel. Studio Bones, will return to produce the anime.
It was previous indicated that the anime would go on longer than one season, as such of a 2 cour show, but there were no confirmations.
Space☆Dandy is an original animated series from studio Bones. The anime is directed by Shinichiro Watanabe, known for directing Cowboy Bebop. The production crew also includes scriptwriters Dai Sato (Samurai Champloo), Keiko Nobumoto (Cowboy Bebop), and Kimiko Ueno (Gokyoudai Monogatari), character designer Yoshiyuki Ito (Fullmetal Alchemist) and spaceship designer Thomas Romain (AKB0048). The series has also received a manga adaptation that began late last year by Masafumi Harada.
Here is a synopsis of the anime from MAL:
Space Dandy is a dandy guy, in space! This dreamy adventurer with a to-die-for pompadour travels across the galaxy in search of aliens no one has ever laid eyes on. Each new species he discovers earns him a hefty reward, but this dandy has to be quick on his feet because it’s first come, first served! Accompanied by his sidekicks, a rundown robot named QT and Meow the cat-looking space alien, Dandy bravely explores unknown worlds inhabited by a variety of aliens. Join the best dressed alien hunter in all of space and time as he embarks on an adventure that ends at the edge of the universe!
The second season of Space☆Dandy will begin airing this Summer. Whilst the cast and crew will largely remain the same, more information about the upcoming season will be revealed in the upcoming weeks and months.
