Space Dandy, the latest from Cowboy Bebop director Shinichiro Watanabe, is getting the streaming treatment in multiple regions, and it will also be making its way to TV. The series is set to air on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim block in January, and FUNimation officially holds the license in North America.
The show follows an alien hunter who is “a dandy guy in the space.” In addition to North America, Space Dandy‘s “worldwide” broadcast covers Asia and Oceania.
