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.

Vandread
15 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

Vandread a story about two distant worlds where society has split into two groups, the Men and the Woman. Both sides hate each other, and come up with stories so scary people cower in the corners at the mere mention of their enemy. Vandread out starts with Hibiki Tokai, a young, wannabe pilot, though his position is in parts manufacturing. He takes a dare to steal a Bangata (The Men's newest mecha, that nobody knows how to pilot), and is instead launched into space on the christening of the ship that had brought them to their planet. When the ship is attacked by Women Pirates, he is one of the three men captured.

Through a freak accident, however, the ship, along with the Pirate Ship, had been connected and made compatible by a crystal originating from the Plexus, considered to be an ideal energy source. When Hibiki is captured, the plot begins to thicken, as the Pirates are attacked by an unknown enemy. This leads to one of the best story lines I've heard in a while.

Through fate or not, Hibiki, Bart, and Duero befriend the Pirates, and they become a team as they try to return to their home planets. Along the way, they discover secrets which make the storyline phenomenal to the point where its considered awe-inspiring, even to the viewer.

I loved Vandread this is definitely now one of my favorite series and I definitely enjoyed it. Its got a great storyline, and the characters develop perfectly. Hibiki is definitely my favorite, though even though he can be a bit of an idiot at times. He is constantly trying to prove himself to the point that he almost gets himself killed multiple times. Also the fight scenes were new and refreshing with the CG animation playing a big part in its attractiveness. The storyline is definitely the best part of this anime. The storyline is perfectly laid out in the anime, and it's worth the $20 or whatever you pay for it a DVD. Alos the great thing about Vandread is you can watch it again and again. I've watched it twice now and I could watch it again.
