Set in 2142, Nadesico is a fast paced, offbeat, science fiction manga. Nadesico is reminiscent of classic anime of the past, combining elements of Macross and Gundam with a Asamiya twist. When Mars is attacked by alien invaders, the United Earth government deploys the large battleship Nadesico into space to fight the alien menace. Manned by a mostly female crew, led by the lovely Yurika Misumaru, the Nadesico also has the accidental hero, Akito Tenkawa.
In this Volume: Akito searches for clues to his past, and a mysterious space cruiser from the past appears – the Yamato (shades of Star Blazers)! When the Nadesico’s crew is reassigned, Yurika receives a mysterious summons… a call to her as the Shaman Queen of the Yamato Pantheon!
Original story and art by fan-favorite Kia Asamiya (Dark Angel, Star Wars Episode One: The Phantom Menace Manga).
