The first season of the superhero drama has been highly praised as a breath of fresh air in the packed genre. With special praise for his writing and the vocal talents of Stephen Yun and J.K. Simmons, Invincible It was expected to sweep the animated Emmys categories.

space dandy It is a strange space comedy that deals with the daily adventures of a bounty hunter. However, just like a lot of other anime series, space dandy He had no chance of competing at the Emmys. There may be a reason to ignore such cartoons, as ValiantSerpant states how the awards require that “the show must originally air on American television…between 6:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m., and to at least 50 percent from the country.”
Despite this limitation, another user SonicFrost adds that space dandy He would still be eligible.
