Trivia

Hibiki only addresses Dita directly by name three times in the second season (Vandread: Second Stage). Once in "Red Angel" when Dita is chasing him in her pajamas about visiting her room right after their meeting about a shared dream. Then he says it twice in "Trust": when Dita is rushing in to save his Vanguard as it fights off the planet killer's self-destructive gateway; and when he's inviting Dita onto the shuttle to Taraak at the very end.

Fairly good
24 July 2003 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Watched Stage 1 and Stage 2 over a year ago and first of all I gotta say the spacebattles are simply breathtaking, some of the best I've ever seen in any anime. The series relies heavily on fan service too, in the form of the scantily clad women we see so often in anime. The plot is OK, it kept me watching, didn't it? :) As for the best anime ever, it is not. But it is entertaining, despite some annyoing characters that got to me. I give it 7 out of 10.
