Anime Limited Acquire Space Dandy for UK Distribution

File this under slightly late (it’s been a busy week for me) but Anime Limited (also known as All The Anime) have recently announced that they have acquired the UK distribution rights for Shinichiro Watanabe’s latest anime series, Space Dandy.

The Series, which sounds more like an old-school comic book than a anime, is a comical tale about Dandy’s adventures in space with his trusty sidekicks QT and Meow. The series has a unique art style and offers some charming similarities to Cowboy Bebop, as Dandy, QT and Meow travel the universe capturing aliens, all the while getting themselves into all sorts of comical trouble.

Space Dandy is a ‘new’ series and Anime Limited will be doing a English Subtitled simulcast on their anime streaming service Wakanim, while an English Dubbed version (which is being produced by FUNimation Entertainment) will be released onto Blu-ray and DVD later next year, as Andrew Partridge, founder and president of Anime Limited explains:

‘We are beyond thrilled at acquiring Watanabe-san’s latest series Space Dandy for the UK! For me, this is a series I’ve been looking forward to since it was announced so being able to bring it to the UK means a lot to me and the Anime Limited team. We’re huge fans of Watanabe-san and can’t wait to watch the show’.

So there we have it, Space Dandy will be distributed into the UK next year by Anime Limited and will be available digitally (in Japanese with English Subtitles) via Wakanim with an English Dubbed (and English Subtitled) Blu-ray and DVD release following later next year. See You Soon Space Dandy!
