Every once in a while, an anime rerelease comes along that reminds audiences what sets the anime medium apart from others. Nadia: Secret of Blue Water is one such series despite how its clearly dated in both its art and effects, but Sentai has done well in restoring it for this Blu-ray release.

The series is great for fans of Miyazaki films who don't mind darker and more mature undertones. The director of the series, Hideaki Anno (of the Evangelion franchise), was likely influenced by Miyazaki because he worked for Miyazaki in the production of Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, and fans of Miyazaki's Nausicaa will find another strong heroine in Nadia. One key distinction, though, is that a 39 episode series had greater opportunity to more fully develop Nadia. Anno has a knack for showing the complexities of humans and relationships, and, simply put, he is great at convincing audiences to like characters for their good attributes and, ultimately, love them for their very human flaws.

Fans of Evangelion will also enjoy the similarities between Eva and Nadia. Quite frankly, the crew of the Nautilus, at times, feels more akin to "NERV in a submarine" (even down to the uniforms), and those who were able to screen Evangelion 3.33 You Can(Not) Redo will be treated to some select musical scores throughout the series that sound oddly familiar….

All in all, whether you're a fan of Hideaki Anno, Evangelion, Miyazaki, or anime in general, this series is a quality work that tells a complete heartfelt human story with a balance of action, drama, humor, and romance that leaves a satisfying conclusion.

I'm not going to spoil the show for anyone but this is one of my favorite anime series I have the old Dvd box sets that came with the soundtrack and movie. This is a great show to invest your time and money into it's 39 episodes long and while it has aged (it IS an old anime series) it is incredibly good if you have ever seen Castle in the Sky well Nadia is a bit like that movie but with some interesting twists and turns. There is fan service but it doesn't warrant a warning sign to keep the kids away because they weren't made to be perverted. This is TV 14 so anyone wanting to get this for little kids might want to rethink it. I'm taking one star off for the fact that they left the movie out of it. As far as extras I just want the series I could care less about packing the soundtrack in with it (I already have it) as it is pretty expensive if they added the soundtrack to it I wouldn't be able to buy it like most of the series that comes out from Aniplex USA that are packed with a bunch of stuff I don't want nor need. Thank you Sentai for releasing this classic I hope you release the movie sometime in the future.

"Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water" is one of those shows that could have achieved true greatness if not for a serious crippling flaw. It starts out with great promise: a Jules Verne-inspired epic which, in a way, feels like an extension of Hayao Miyazaki's CASTLE IN THE SKY (incidentally, the master created the concept for this show, and basically recycled that for his 1986 masterpiece), filled with humor, drama, young love, friendship, moving moments, adventure, danger, and mystery. Incidentally, the series is based on "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea", as a good portion of the show (episodes 4, 9-22) sets on a submarine which just happens to be called "Nautilus", and yes, it's commanded by Captain Nemo. "Nadia" offers a rich tapestry of compelling characters, from the decidedly comic Grandis trio (who start off as bad guys, then become heroes), the captain and his crew, and the children protagonists who propel the story. In fact, much of the focus is about the growing friendship (and yes, romance) between Jean and Nadia, two orphans from different worlds brought together in unusual circumstances and forced to face situations that are very unfamiliar to them. Both are also of different personalities: he is sweet-natured, brilliant (read: adorkably nerdy), caring, eager to please, and overwhelmingly genial, while she is introverted, distrusting, emotionally troubled, and sometimes impulsively bad tempered. (This can sometimes make the latter a very alienating character, but on the other hand, another focal point of the show is Nadia's growth into a more stable, trusting adult on account of Jean's loyalty and compassion.) All of this is underscored by great animation (for a TV show) and memorable bits of action and drama.Read more ›

This is a decent release by Sentai Filmworks, but one wonders how much better it could have been if more time was invested in it.
The release seems like a half- baked release on Sentai's part.

First off, the series is 39 episodes long spaced across 5 blu-ray discs, with 9 episodes per disc. Interestingly, the fifth blu-ray disc has the final 3 episodes on it, which is totally unacceptable from an episode count point of view. The episodes could have been spaced out much better across the 5 discs. Because of that, some of the images look a little soft on some of the episodes, and one wonders if too many episodes were crammed on the first 4 discs.

Another issue with this set is there are no extras whatsoever. Even the old dvd releases had the motion picture movie included, plus the CD soundtracks...this release has nothing in terms of extras.

Do I recommend this set? If you are a fan of the show yes, however, if you are a first time watcher, then no. Its high price and lack of extras isn't enough to warrant a purchase.
