The Martian Successor Nadesico Club

Martian Successor Nadesico - TV Series Plot overview: When Earth's colonies on Mars are suddenly attacked by alien invaders referred to as the Jovian Lizards, civilian contractor Nergal decides to come to the Earth's aid by constructing powerful space battleships, the first of which is known as the ND-001 Nadesico. A crew is selected from among the top civilian experts in each field, however, these individuals tend to have "some slight personality disorders". The main character, Akito Tenkawa, is a boy with a mysterious past; once a resident of Mars' Utopia colony, Tenkawa somehow escaped its destruction by the Jovian Lizards and arrived on Earth, with no memory of how he got there but a terrible fear of the invaders. He hates fighting and only wants to be a cook, however, he is constantly called on to act as a pilot of one of the Nadesico's Aestevalis - humanoid combat robots. While on board the Nadesico, Akito has more problems to deal with than just the Jovians; pretty much all the female members of the crew, especially the vessel's captain Yurika, seem to be head over heels in love with Akito, but all he wants to do is cook and watch his favorite anime. Martian Successor Nadesico: The Motion Picture - Prince of Darkness Plot overview: Three years have passed since the end of the original series. The Earth and the Jovian Federation have come to an uneasy peace. However, Akito and Yurika have both vanished, presumed dead, and a new threat to peace is rising. A grown-up Ruri Hoshino, as the new captain of the highly-mobile battleship Nadesico B, sets out to solve the mysteries. Much of the original cast returns in order to put a stop to the threat. In fact, one part of the movie has Ruri and her two subordinates traveling around specifically to rally the old Nadesico crew. Some of the crew have undergone slight changes; the Aestivalis pilot Ryoko now has purple hair as opposed to the original green, but others (such as the pun-loving Izumi) have not changed at all. The only new cast member of note is a young boy named Enzan Makibi (Hari), who like Ruri is a genetically engineered prodigy and has exceptional control over machines, actually being able to single-handedly control the Nadesico. Hari also serves as comic relief thanks to his tendency to let his emotions get the better of him.

The english dub made this show much funnier with the ridiculous voices.

Which is a damn shame. So much lost potential...

I did? But yeah, Nadesico won't be seeing another release for a while.

TemplarXIII | May 30, 2009 11:38 PM
Yeah, I remember you telling me about the little situation between Starchild and Xebec.

llxwarbirdxll | May 30, 2009 11:14 PM
The second movie's supposed to introduce some new characters and mechs. And yes, I would love to see more Nadesico. Of course, that won't be happening anytime soon.

TemplarXIII | May 30, 2009 11:05 PM
Heh, funny you should mention Evangelion...Rebuild 1.0 was the same damn thing, but with slightly better animation. Honestly, I was hoping to see a little new content, but that was not the case. They're really milking it.

Would you like to see some new Nadesico releases?

I wouldn't mind it.

llxwarbirdxll | May 30, 2009 1:04 AM
But the thing is, the Evangelion franchise is still alive, with spin-offs, remakes, and alternate stories being made constantly, almost to the point that it's nauseating, whereas Nadesico hasn't had a real release for about a decade.
