The aliens have destroyed our base on Mars, wiped out our space fleets, and now, only one ship stands between Earth and total annihilation! Disgusted by the incompetence of Earth’s military, the independent arms manufacturer Nergal has built its own space battle cruiser. But due to the shortage of trained soldiers, they’ve had to assemble the most unorthodox crew to ever launch into orbit. With a cook who’s also a pilot and an Admirals’s daughter in command, the new starship is the most formidable fighting vehicle ever conceived. But before it can see action against the Jovian invaders the crew must win their first victory against their own species as they fight off a ruthless attempt by Earth’s military to seize the Nadesico! Get ready for the wildest space adventure ever in the amazing new series that was voted the ‘Best Anime Show Of All Time’ by Japanese animation fans, MARTIAN SUCCESSOR NADESICO!

KNOWN DVD SECRET(S): None that I know of
This anime is one of the popular TV anime series to come from Japan in the late 90’s. Once you buy this DVD, you will have to commit yourself to buying more and more including the movies. In other words, commit to stay and watch the whole series.
I watched this series when it first came out in Japan and I remember the buzz from anime fans of how they loved the series.
I wish there were more episodes per DVD but since it’s a popular title, ADV Films knows that people are going to buy the DVD nonetheless.
The DVD features the textless opening and ending themes, character profiles and the typical ADV trailers.
Stay in for the long haul and you will enjoy this series.
THE ANIME: B+
THE DVD EXTRAS: C+
THE DVD OVERALL: B-
