Nadia: The Secret of the Blue Water licensed by Sentai


They're gonna license you! And you! And you!

Once again, Sentai is sweeping the field and grabbing anime licenses -- but wait! This one is definitely different from the last few. Sentai Filmworks has licensed Gainax's classic series Nadia: The Secret of the Blue Water! The re-licensed show will be arriving next year on bilingual Blu-ray and DVD, and the press release also lists that it'll be coming to streaming services soon. Yes, that means it'll be the first time the 39-episode series will be available in HD! I hope the Blu-ray transfer is excellent!

The series (inspired by Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and other Jules Verne works) was directed by Hideaki Anno and based off of a concept by Hayao Miyazaki. The iconic Yoshiyuki Sadamoto created the character designs, and the music was by Sagisu Shiro. It was a classic Gainax production, and is still a great show. I'm glad to see it get a re-release here.

Who's up for some Nadia?
