We are in the post-month-and-a-half-of-holidays slump in North America, leaving a number of shows on hiatus, but we have a couple of new ones to bring you. Space Dandy, a new anime with a superstar pedigree, starts this weekend, while My Little Pony takes a trip to NYC.
As always - minor spoilers ahead!
Space Dandy - "Live with the Flow, Baby"
Space Dandy, a brand new anime from the creators of Cowboy Bebop and Full Metal Alchemist begins airing on Cartoon Network during the Saturday night Toonami block. The story follows an bounty hunter, his feline side kick, and a robot assistant as they track down aliens across the cosmos.
Space Dandy is launching simultaneously in Japan and North America, so if you've ever wanted to get into an anime without a significant time delay, this is your chance. Heck, nothing else is on and Space Dandy looks like fun - check it out.
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic - "Rarity takes Manehattan"
The ponies head to Manehattan (wakka wakka) so Rarity can show off her wares (and sing a bunch per this clip) at a fashion show. I'm not sure Rarity can remain humble for long.
