Storyline

The Earth is being attack by machines from Jupiter called Jovian Lizards, the Earth's last hope may be the Nadesico, a highly advanced spaceship created by a huge corporation. One of the crew-members, Atiko Tenkawa, a chef/pilot turns up to discover his childhood friend Yurika Misumara is the captain. Yurika has a crush on Akito, but other crew-members love him too, presenting Yurika with competition. Akito, however, isn't interested in any of the girls, due to the fact that he's busy cooking and trying to cope with a past trauma. Soon the crew discovers that the Lizards aren't what they appear and may have more enemies than they bargained for. Written by Kai-18

Restored faith in Anime
4 March 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Having received the first volume of this series on DVD for christmas, I only had one thought. 'Can I sell it on e-bay if I don't unwrap it?'

This will teach me to judge a book (or DVD in this case) by the cover.

2 weeks later I figured I might as well put it on and have a good laugh at this potential garbage. How wrong could a man be. Not only did I have a GREAT laugh but I've been turned onto anime a second time. The animation is stock standard but the script more than makes up for this. Well paced, peppered with loads of laughs.

Lets hope the boys and girls in Japan keep cranking out more series like this. *** out of ****
