Nozomi Entertainment picked up the rights to Martian Successor Nadesico awhile ago for release and recently set their plans for it. Ahead of its April 4th release on DVD priced at $49.99 and Blu-ray priced at $64.99, they’ve now brought out their first clip for it that showcases some of the character quirks. The set will contain the full twenty-six episode run, the Prince of Darkness movie, all the previously seen DVD extras, and the Gekiganger 3 OVA. The release will be a bilingual one and the Blu-ray release will use LPCM formatting for the languages. Extras for the sets include Clean Opening, Clean Ending, TV Spots, Trailers, Interviews with Actors and Staff, “Welcome to Belle Equipe” featurette, “Nadesico Sorekara” special, and a music video.
Plot concept: The Earth, its moon and its Martian colonies are under alien attack, but the war against the “Jovian lizards” has, so far, been nothing short of a series of disasters.
Disgusted by the incompetence of Earth’s military, the independent arms manufacturer Nergal builds its own space battleship and plans to launch a desperate offensive to save humanity. But due to a shortage of trained soldiers, they’ve assembled the most unorthodox crew to ever launch into orbit! With a pacifist cook-turned-unwilling mecha pilot and a ditsy admiral’s daughter in command, can this unprecedented gathering of geeks, misfits and anime fans prevail against the Jovian menace?
