The Glorio Blog: "It’s always tough to hit that perfect combination of funny and emotional. Too much saccharine will take the edge off your jokes, while being too profound makes the laughs feel out of place. It’s a credit to Space Dandy‘s excellent writing then that this episode manages to walk the tightrope perfectly. It’s mostly a hilarious date-movie parodying romp filled with wild visuals and amusing spacey spins on old jokes. But it also adds an emotional edge at just the right time. The result is a beautifully crafted, complete slice of excellent television."
