One of the first things that comes to mind when talking about Ashita no Nadja is don’t judge a book by its cover. I stumbled upon the series after reading random reviews of shoujo anime. The reviews I read praised it greatly, so I checked it out and at first it seemed questionable at first. The animation seemed below average, and the dancing scene in the opening made it look like it was going to be one of those lame “happy go lucky prince and princess fair tail” shows. That assumption could not have possibly been any more wrong. There are many moments that were read more

A modern television masterpiece is what this show is. Very few television shows, let alone longer than 13 episodes, are so well built, thought out and whole as this one and to top it all even the animation and sound production values are on a par with today's standards.

A very recommended show to everyone, and a must watch for lovers of epic dramas, romances and adventure.

Nadja is a young orphan girl who sets out of her orphanage to seek her family origins around europe of the early 20th century, armed only with her mother's party gown, journal and heart shaped brooch. She joins a traveling read more

Ashita no Nadja feels like a collaboration of the general foundations from the stories Anastasia the Russian Princess and Robin Hood, set about 100 years ago, with the occasional dances and trolling over Europe amongst other things. This anime is a rough diamond and it’s a shame not as many people have seen it as one may like.

The story involves the backdrop of Nadja trying to find her mother. As she travels with a troupe of entertainers she encounters many different personalities, stories, dances and gains clues on who her mother maybe. The story is also comprised of many testing factors for read more

Ashita no Nadja....oh my god this anime! Before I go on with my review let me tell a short little story. A couple of years back, my brother and I started watching this anime not knowing what to expect. But before you know it we got so hooked that we saw that last 8 episodes in Spanish not understanding a word they were saying and with no subtitles just to see what will happen. This anime becomes an emotional roller-coaster maybe unlike anything you've ever seen before. It's a masterpiece and it's sad that most people don't know about it giving it's from 2004 and read more

They're both similar in the sense that they are both constantly saved by someone in a mask that they create a bond with. The heroines are also similar because they always act cheery and are very energetic.
