From the character designer of Dirty Pair, this was a 5-minute short that maintained the comedy that makes Space Dandy so good.  The creators kept up with the originality of each episode of the main series even with this blu-ray bonus picture drama and it was quite humorous!  Varied worlds, and here is where we’ve got this planet that uses the idea of imagining rare aliens to make things more interesting for the crew.  It would have been neat to see how Dandy would have reacted on this planet, as he was only shown in the very end.

So, Honey and Candy from the Boobies restaurant decide to become alien hunters, in turn Meow thinks this is a fantastic idea, where QT is a bit worried ultimately reflects these characters’ behavior very well from the main series.  It’s great to have these shorts pulled into the show, as it jumps even deeper into the many themes of boobies, and the terminology this series that the writers have built around Space Dandy.  Loved the scene with Henry and Candy that was hilarious!  As a step away from the traditional adventure of a Space Dandy episode this was a lot more subtle with only 5 minutes to work with.  Too bad this could not have been an entire extra episode.

*This picture drama was included on Blu-ray Volume 4 of Space Dandy.

OVERALL IMPRESSION: 7/10
