This long, involving anime series should provide a wonderful stepping stone for youngsters being weaned from Pokémon. Based partially on Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water begins as Jean, a young French boy who builds airplanes, teams with his uncle to enter a flying competition at the 1899 World's Fair in Paris. It's there that the preteen Jean meets and immediately falls for the exotic Nadia, who leads an unhappy life as a circus performer. Jean turns protector when Nadia is chased by a trio of bumbling villains who are after the mysterious "blue water" in Nadia's necklace. Their pursuit leads to the open sea, where Jean and Nadia board an American battleship searching for a vengeful sea monster, ultimately revealed as Captain Nemo's submarine, Nautilus. This first series from Hideaki Anno (Neon Genesis Evangelion) has some of the charm and rich detail of the films of Hayao Miyazaki (who "conceived" the story) but features cardboard villains that could be distant cousins of Pokémon's Team Rocket. Nadia, Secret of Blue Water stepped into the limelight in 2001, 11 years after its original production, thanks to myriad similarities to Disney's ambitious animated feature Atlantis: The Lost Empire, including period setting, design, characters, story, and a mystical blue necklace. This set delivers the first half of the series--39 episodes spanning 16 hours--which is far too long, as the story runs out of stream in the final third. Two CD soundtracks are also included. (Rated 12 and older for violence, but suitable for ages 7 to teens) --Doug Thomas

The title says it all. If you can get past the old style of animation you will enjoy this anime's story and characters.

Also, if you liked Last Exile you will find that Nadia is just as good, if not better IMO.

this anime is fun, and is appealing too lots of people, it has alot of different things in it. there are 3 main characters, and the series does a good job showing there personality, it is safe for kids, good for teens, good for adults. the ending of the series was suppossed to be a little bad. animation is good, and the humor is ok. great story, doesnt feel like 1889 though.

Was exactly as described. I wasn't sure it was in English and they helped me with the dub.

Thanks,

Susan
