There is one word that strikes more fear in the hearts of anime fans than any other word in existence. More horrifying than "cancellation," more terrifying than "delayed." A word that is reviled in all of its unholy terror even more than "4Kids." That word that sends shivers of cosmic dread up the spines off all otaku everywhere, and that word is...


Yes, filler. That timeless bane of viewing audiences worldwide and anime watchers in particular. Filler is what can bring a powerful, charging locomotive of a story to a screeching halt. Filler is what can rip to shreds the beautiful, delicate threads of intricate plotting. Filler is what can flush masterful, carefully planned character development down the toilet. In short, filler is that special sweetness that takes a wonderful, exciting show and blows it into the ninth circle of Hell. What does the dreaded F Word have to do with this second DVD collection of "Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water?" Well, you should already be able to tell by now, but I'll spell it out anyway: the second half of this show contains filler. About 10 episodes worth. But, in a minor subversion of the above paragraph and contrary to the railings of most "Nadia" fans, the filler in this show is not *that* bad.

The Continuing Plot, As It Is: After numerous adventures with Captain Nemo and the Nautilus, Jean, Nadia and Marie are stranded on a desert island. There they struggle to survive, with Jean in particular struggling to survive both Nadia's mood swings and romantic attentions. Meanwhile, Gargoyle's Neo-Atlantean Empire continues to conspire to Take Over The World, and the young trio will have quite a challenge stopping the megalomaniac and saving the planet ...

Sadly, the second collection of NADIA: THE SECRET OF BLUE WATER is a whole other matter. The show, initially scheduled to run for approximately 30 episodes, did better than expected in Japan, and so it was decided to expand the episode count in order to milk more cash. But director Hideaki Anno was already working overtime and Gainax was running short on funds, so it was decided to outsource the animation to other studios in Japan and Korea, and turn direction over to Shinji Higuchi. This only succeeded in spelling a major disaster for NADIA, resulting in a sourly disappointing second half that sadly undermines everything that came before it.

The set actually starts out pretty promising; Episodes 21 and 22 conclude the Nautilus arc in a spectacular showcase of pyrotechnics, emotional turmoil, and surprisingly gutwrenching (if predictable) plot twists which can arguably be considered as the last truly great episodes of NADIA. After a showdown with the evil Gargoyle that cripples the submarine, Captain Nemo jettisons Jean, Nadia, Marie, and King into his capsule, and all four soon become shipwrecked on a deserted island.

Now naturally from this set-up, one would assume that the show will continue on its adventurous, compelling course for its remaining seventeen episodes. But that's just it - from episodes 23 to 34, NADIA doesn't even *feel* like the same show anymore. Subtitled by many fans as the "infamous island episodes", these dozen half-hours are rather nasty, haphazardly animated and abysmally written "fillers" in which absolutely nothing valuable is provided to the central storyline.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nadia box set June 6, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is my favorite anime of all time. I am truly excited to even find the 2 boxset for this anime. This show is amazing and if anyone loves a great plot with twist and turns. Then you shall truly enjoy this boxset! The one thing I notice is that the boxset states that you are to receive a OST with the 2 boxset i did not get one in my boxse and i haven't heard of anyone receiving theirs either. maybe it was a typo on the information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nadia Vol.2 exceptional ending July 6, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Already had Vol 1 and wanted to see the ending.

Overall the animation is excellent and the voice actors for the main characters are 14 years old like the main characters themselves. There were some episodes which were clearly lacking, both in budget and story, but it isn't enough to really derail the series.
Don't know who I would recommend it to, but I enjoyed it.
