Long before Masaaki Yuasa’s guest contribution to Adventure Time, even before Ping Pong was announced, it was known that Yuasa was going to be contributing to the Space Dandy project. Since this was going to be only his second major project since 2010′s Tatami Galaxy (the other being the Kickstarter funded Kick-Heart), those in the sakuga animation crowd were excited to see his work again. The anticipation for Yuasa’s episode lead to some high expectations.
