Martian Successor Nadesico Review


Today I just watched the final part of Martian Successor Nadesico (for all you anime people : Yes, I know, I should be ashamed that I haven't seen it until now). A brief description of the plot follows:

The aliens have destroyed our base on Mars, wiped out our space fleets, and now, only one ship stands between Earth and total annihilation! Disgusted by the incompetence of Earth's military, the independent arms manufacturer Nergal has built its own space battle cruiser. But due to the shortage of trained soldiers, they've had to assemble the most unorthodox crew to ever launch into orbit. With a cook who's also a pilot and an Admirals's daughter in command, the new starship is the most formidable fighting vehicle ever conceived. But before it can see action against the Jovian invaders, the crew must win their first victory against their own species as they fight off a ruthless attempt by Earth's military to seize the Nadesico! Get ready for the wildest space adventure ever in the amazing new series that was voted the "Best Anime Show Of All Time"* by Japanese animation fans, MARTIAN SUCCESSOR NADESICO!

All in all an excellent series. The parodies of mecha series (it even parodies itself on occasion) are hillarious. After watching Neon Genesis for the 2nd time it was nice to watch something upbeat and funny. If you're looking for a funny anime or want to introduce one of your friends to anime you could do a lot worse than show him/her this. A full 5/5. Excellent.
