About Nadesico

The Earth, its moon and its Martian colonies are under alien attack, but the war against the "Jovian lizards" has, so far, been nothing short of a series of disasters.

Disgusted by the incompetence of Earth's military, the independent arms manufacturer Nergal builds its own space battleship and plans to launch a desperate offensive to save humanity. But due to a shortage of trained soldiers, they've assembled the most unorthodox crew to ever launch into orbit! With a pacifist cook-turned-unwilling mecha pilot and a ditsy admiral's daughter in command, can this unprecedented gathering of geeks, misfits and anime fans prevail against the Jovian menace?

The Martian Successor Nadesico Complete Collection L.E. DVD box set includes the entire 26-episode television series and its sequel motion picture (Prince of Darkness), as well as its Gekigangar 3 OVA spin-off. This is the first time Gekigangar 3 is available to North American audiences.

It features remastered video from the Japanese DVD release for the Nadesico TV series and Gekigangar 3 OVA and the previously released English-language dub (TV series and film), plus Japanese audio, English-language subtitles and on-screen translations, and on-disc extras. The limited-edition set's seven discs are housed in a Thinpak-style, full-color chipboard art box.

Fans' Questions for Nadesico Director Tatsuo Sato

Director Tatsuo Sato brought his unique mix of action, humor and heart to several science-fiction anime sagas over the years, from Shingu: Secret of the Stellar WarsStellvia to current favorites Bodacious Space Pirates and Lagrange - The Flower of Rin-ne, and of course, Martian Successor Nadesico. In honor of the Nadesico Complete Collection's release, he very graciously took some time out to answer YOUR questions about one of his most beloved works.

Q. One of the key points of Nadesico is an old-fashioned anime that still has the power to draw people in and inspire them. What real-life shows, if any, have this quality for you?

Director Sato: Probably because this show has one, consistent world. Even when the designs and direction get old, as long as the show has one, solid "world," it will always remain strong. A good example would be The Castle of Cagliostro Lupin III.
