Editorial Reviews

The Earth, the Moon and our Martian Colonies are under alien attack and our space fleets are powerless to stop the invasion. Disgusted by the incompetence of the Terran military, the independent arms manufacturer Nergal builds its own space battlecruiser and launches a new offensive in a desperate attempt to save the Earth. Unfortunately, due to a shortage of trained military personnel, the crew is a little unorthodox…. With a reluctant assistant cook as a pilot, a ditsy General’s daughter in command, and the largest contingent of geeks, misfits and anime fans ever sent into orbit, the poor Jovians won’t stand a chance! There’s love, war and giant robots galore in the award winning anime masterpiece MARTIAN SUCCESSOR NADESICO! Collects the entire 26-episode series on 6 discs in one package.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps the best sci-fi/comedy anime series May 29, 2005
Martian Successor Nadesico is indeed one of my personal favorite Japanese anime series of all time, and I will also have to say that it is probably THE best in the sci-fi/comedy department. The series has a tragic plot, and there are also tragic moments, but the main classification for this series would be a mechomedy (mecha/comedy). What's nice about these reissues is that you get more for less. For instance, you can buy the "Complete Chronicles" 6-disc box set for 90 bucks. OR, you can buy the six individual discs (Invasion, Mission To Mars, Danger Zones, Paradigm Shifts, Secrets and Lies, and Endgame) for 30 bucks a pop. OR STILL, you could check the bargain bin for the twelve VHS volumes (I have the first two, volume 1 dubbed and volume 2 subtitled, but I think I'm gonna sell them).

However, this is a 2 disc set with a grand total of 9 episodes for a mere 20 dollars. Plus, on the first episode, you can turn on a commentary track with English actors Brett Weaver (Gai Daigoji), Mark X. Laskowski (Jun Aoi), and John Swasey (Seiyaa Uribatake), as well as ADR director Matt Greenfield (also credited as Brian Granveldt). Disc 2 also features a nifty gallery of production sketches, character bios of pretty much all the important members of the Nadesico's crew, clean opening and closing animation sequences, and trailers (duh).

Ultimately, I would highly recommend this series. It has hilarious romantic comedy coupled with intense sci-fi action and beautiful character designs by Keiji Gotou (who designed the characters on Those Who Hunt Elves and Sorcerer Hunters, directed animation on Blue Seed episodes 8, 13 and 17, and was a key animator on many episodes of my all time fave, Neon Genesis Evangelion). ANIMETAL FOREVER!

5.0 out of 5 stars This really is a pretty funny show October 14, 2005
By Erin
I bought this DVD on blind faith based on the reviews I read about it. I thought that if so many other people enjoyed it, then I probably would as well.

The first 2-3 episodes are a little dull, but they're important to build the rest of the story I think. It truly is a funny show, the music is corny, the cast is corny, everything is really corny... but it really is hilarious... especially if you have seen Neon Genesis Evangelion.

If you're thinking about buying it, I would say go ahead and do it. It's really great.

3.0 out of 5 stars Funny series that mocks robot animes February 8, 2011
By P. Yan
Nadesico is a great anime series that makes fun of itself as well as the entire history/genre of robot anime. Taking pieces from Neon Genesis Evangelion, Mazinger, Voltron, Star Blazers (aka Space Battleship Yamato) and other series... this show combines action, comedy, drama, and cool character development. Portions of this show go from slapstick comedy (Akito's scene when he runs into Yurika) to deadly serious (Jiro aka Guy's death).
