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.

Deeply entertaining
17 February 2004 | by (Palo Alto, CA) – See all my reviews

I thought this might be another kiddish shoot-em-up anime, and like others here, I also mistook it for a feminist series early on. Well, it ain't either.

Allow me to make a toast to a team of writers who actually seem to understand human emotions! Unlike too many soulless anime series these days, Vandread's actually funny (both the physical and written humor) and its characters have personalities and chemistry. For that reason, the drama works, too, and the series is thankfully free of those forced incidents engineered to conveniently create melodrama. Heck, even the dorky premise that the show rests on -- males and females literally being from different worlds -- is used to good effect.

I'm also a fan of the artwork, and the hot/cute female characters make the fanservice welcome. The mecha action scenes are pretty invigorating, too (even if things move a bit fast to see what's going on). Cinching the deal, both the intro and ending theme songs kick ass.

The second season ("Vandread 2nd Stage") was a bit of a disappointment, regressing to the typical repetitive clichéd humor that defines all too many anime comedies, but to me the first season ranks right up there with Neon Genesis Evangelion in sheer awesomeness.
