Nozomi's resurrected Nadesico gets a release date


I was happy to see that Nozomi got a hold of the entirety of Martian Successor Nadesico last year at Anime Expo, since it happens to be one of my favorite animes in the mecha comedy department. When I mean entirety, they are also including Nadesico: Prince of Darkness and the previously unlicensed OVA based off of the show within a show known as Gekigangar 3.

One of the things that made Nadesico such an amusing series was the antics that were created by the crew of the Nadesico ship, since they exhibit random personality traits that you would not expect out of a space mecha series that has to do with war. Thanks to Nozomi, people who missed out on ADV Film's release will have the chance to own the series. 

Nozomi plans to release the entire remastered 26 episode series in one nicely packed thinbox set on September 4th of this year, which will also include Prince of Darkness and Gekigangar 3. The series will come packaged in a full-color, fancy chipboard art box for all you collectors out there. As a little something extra, Nozomi is requesting fans of Tatsuo Sato's (Nadesico, Moretsu Pirates) work to send them some questions that will be answered by the man himself. You can pre-order your copy along with submitting your questions right here. You better hurry with those questions, because the deadline is going to be on May 25 at 4:00pm CDT.
