Two years after the events of "Kidô senkan Nadeshiko" (1996), Akito and Yurika are missing and presumed dead, the former foes of the Great War are allies, and the 14-year-old genetically-engineered wunderkind Ruri Hoshino is now captain of the new Battleship Nadesico. When a Martian separatist group initiates a well-planned, well-executed and most of all successful military action, the combined Earth-Jovian government and military are paralyzed by confusion and internal bickering. It is up to Ruri to reassemble the mostly-retired crew of the original Nadesico to take on an unsanctioned mission to bring a halt to the Martian Successors, free their stranglehold on Boson jump transportation, and discover the fate of Akito and Yurika.

To begin with lets get one thing straight, i loved the series. The humour, the characters, the style, everything. It ended with a few un-answered questions though so i was keen to see the movie in the hope that it would explain some of these.
It answers some...
Then it asks lots more...
....and explains none of them.
The characters are butchered (some relegated to one line, while newer characters we care nothing for dominate the screen time). The film is devoid of humour and missing most of the TV series themes.
The one great thing about Nadesico was that it was fun, this is just a depressing piece of s**t. Its like the makers got confused and thought they were making an Evangelion movie not a Nadesico one (for the record I love Evangelion, but I liked Nadesico for not being the same).
In short if you love the series AVOID. Its like Highlander II and Star Wars the Phantom Menace, it actually takes away some of your enjoyment of the originals, particularly when you find out some of the horrible things they have done to the charters.
I think this is actually the movie I hate most in the world. There are some crap films that I just think are crap. This actually offended me.
Right, I'm off to take a shower, since this film made me feel unclean.
