More Bounty Hunter Fun In New Show From Creators of Cowboy Bebop [VIDEO]

Rejoice, fans of Cowboy Bebop!  Series creator Shinichiro Watanabe has brand new show called Space Dandy debuting tonight on Adult Swim. As an added bonus, the animation studio behind Fullmetal Alchemist worked on the show, and the animation looks slick and gorgeous. Obsession with breasts in the trailer aside, if this series is anything like Bebop or Watanabe’s other great show, Samurai Champloo, we can probably look forward to some interesting ladies in the cast.

Now feast your eyes on our list of amazing, eyepatch clad characters.
