Main article: List of Martian Successor Nadesico characters

The series takes place in the year 2196 Earth is at war with a race of alien invaders called the "Jovian Lizards" A company called Nergal designs a space battleship, the ND-001 Nadesico While the ship is powerful and its crew consists of the top civilian experts in their fields, these individuals tend to have "some slight personality disorders"3

The primary protagonist, Akito Tenkawa, is a boy with a mysterious past; once a resident of Mars' Utopia colony, he 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 chef However, he is constantly called on to act as a pilot of one of the Nadesico's Aestivalis - humanoid combat robots While on board the Nadesico, Akito has more problems to deal with than just the Jovians; nearly all the female members of the crew, especially the vessel's captain Yurika Misumaru, seem to be head over heels in love with him, though all he wants to do is cook and watch his favorite anime, Gekiganger III3

Productionedit

The series features an energetic juxtaposition of comedy and drama, as the characters engage in lighthearted antics in between facing the drama of war Many of the characters are themselves anime fans, and there is often comparison between the campy, sanitized war of the anime within an anime Gekigangar III and the much harsher reality that the crew of the Nadesico faces The show intentionally includes a number of science fiction anime clichés, including time travel and alien invaders, but turns these concepts on their heads by the end of the series through a number of plot twists

There are many anime references, particularly to the series Space Battleship Yamato the name Nadesico is a play on the phrase "Yamato nadeshiko", which represents the traditional Japanese ideal of femininity, and also the name of a flower4 One of the characters was a voice actress before joining the crew and in fact is a parody of a specific voice actress, Megumi Hayashibara,5 another is a fangirl who likes to draw her own shōnen-ai doujinshi, and a third is an otaku who bases his entire life on Gekigangar III

In an episode late in the series, the ship holds an anime convention complete with a viewing marathon of Gekigangar, people engaged in cosplay, and tie-in merchandising Another episode makes a parody of the Macross anime, as the crew celebrates a Miss Nadesico contest to decide a new captain and public figurehead, in which all the female crew members participate The contest includes a swimsuit competition and singing6

The Gekigangar anime show is in fact an homage and parody of many Super Robot mecha anime of the 70s and 80s, most particularly the Go Nagai/Ken Ishikawa collaboration Getter Robo7 The battles between Earth and planetary colonies featured throughout the show is a reference to Gundam, while the assortment of odd-ball characters on the ship who prefer to choose their own battles, rather than take sides, is a nod to Harlock In addition, writers from previous popular sci-fi mecha shows occasionally get announced in teasers for various episodes of Nadesico

Receptionedit

There have been mixed reviews to the series, although most reviews have been positive One review written when the series was released on DVD gave it average ratings, commenting that while the show was dubbed into English poorly, it commented positively on the use of characters saying, "Despite his heroic calling as a robot pilot, Akito is remarkably approachable—after all, what could be more down-to-earth than a cook Yurika, the world's most unlikely starship captain, may seem like a troublesome ditz at first, but demonstrates resolve and emotional depth as she learns the art of leadership The characters may be billed as goofballs, but they also provide some of the most touching moments in the show The Nadesico mindset shows that heroism and self-sacrifice are still respectable virtues, and that nobody needs to hear whining about why you can't or won't pilot a giant robot"11

Other reviews have been generally positive, with one saying, "Nadesico is one of those rare series that has something for everyone Comedy, action, romance, dramayou name it, this series has it well, almost What's even more astonishing is that Nadesico keeps everything tied together in a neat little coherent package, so much so that you'll hardly even notice the blend of genres It's a pretty cool little package, too"12 Another review praised the English dub, saying "I first watched this show multiple times in Japanese, but eventually gave the English dub a try and found I loved it The cast is excellent, with Jennifer Earhart's Yurika being especially noteworthy Even minor characters, such as a Jovian pilot played by Jason Douglas, give great performances His reading of 'If only the humans appreciated life as we do, I would not have to kill so many of them' is brilliant"13

The series quickly became popular The film won the Animage Grand Prix award in 19981 In other polls conducted by Animage in the same year, Akito was voted the ninth most "Favorite Male Character Of The Year", Ruri Hoshino was voted second and Yurika eighth most "Favorite Female Characters Of The Year" and the TV series was vote the third "Favorite Anime Of The Year"14
