Product Details

Product Description


In this sophomoric sci-fi series, men and women live on separate planets (Talac and Majel) in a state of mutual hostility and ignorance. Mechanic/third-class citizen Hibiki stows away aboard the new Talac flagship and gets caught by the attacking Majel pirates. He's thrown into contact with Dirda, a girl it would be charitable to describe as ditsy--during a battle, she cries, "These guys are really bad aliens!" The women are forced to enlist the aid of Hibiki and two other male prisoners when they're attacked by unknown aliens who look like something made with a high-tech Lego set. The visuals are a jarring mixture of 3-D computer graphics, flat monochromatic artwork, and 2-D drawn animation. With its many explosions, mecha, scantily clad women, and underdog hero, Vandread is clearly aimed at adolescent boys with raging hormones, despite the male-bashing humor. Contains the first 4 of 13 episodes. Rated 13 Up: Nudity, violence, risqué humor. --Charles Solomon

4.0 out of 5 stars Discovery July 16 2003
This series is hilarious! After being seperated for 3 generations, men and women are coming together again for the first time, which leads to some unintentional humor on thier part(like the second time a Vandread is formed, and the aftermath. I won't spoil it here, but it is too funny.)
The who whole thing is about discovering things about the opposite sex. Lots of cool space battles, lots of humor.(Male Doctor "She has a parasitic organism inside of her." Female navigator "No, I pregnant!")
All in all, a good series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Studio Gonzo does it again! Jan. 23 2003
By Amber
Just as with Gatekeepers and Blue Submarine No. 6, Gonzo has picked another winner of an anime. Gorgeous girls, cute guys, awe-inspiring machinery--and that's just the cast! The storyline is Boy Meets Girl with a definite twist that will be hard for the characters to completely overcome. The English dub is great--as a matter of fact, I PREFER it over the original Japanese. The original version is terrific as well, but there is just something about the English version that does the series justice. There is a good amount of action, but the focus of the story is really on how the characters interact with each other and their situation. Kudos to the makers of Vandread--my new favorite sci-fi series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Interstellar action and building romance Aug. 19 2002
Vandread is `Lost In Space with a pich of Star Wars and Robotech (Macross)'. An interplanetary war between men and women, which the women are declared `superior'. The result of the most recent battle involves a male stowaway, a male doctor and a screwball helmsman who couldn't charm a fish... trapped on a ship commanded by women, soon to band together to battle a race who wants everybody different from them dead. There's comedy, action (cool 3D effects), unintended romance (Hibiki... pursued by Dita.) and a lesson to be learned... again.

5.0 out of 5 stars The men versus the women June 22 2002
I saw the first episode of this series at the 2002 Anime Midatlantic Conference in Virginia. I thought it was quite funny. I have finally gottne hold of the entire first season and it has gotten funnier, but it also can rip your heart out. This series really gets the audience into the characters and situations that they are in will move you to laughter or tears. In the series, the men have the upper class who are pilots and officers and a lower class who builds the equipment for thier army. You end up following a young boy from the lower group that gets stuck on a war ship and a girl training to be a warrior for the women. The men and women see themselves as aliens, but you will learn that in the past they had lived together. The series follows their journey to stop an alien race from killing off their race and their attempt to try to understand the opposit sex. If you are looking for something with amazing computer animated mecha and that will make you laugh, I think you have found it. Enjoy. Keep the faith, dEx

4.0 out of 5 stars Animated fun with adult themes June 19 2002
Gonzo, the production company, did an excellent job on the animation. The sequences are smooth and the "CG" blends well with the "standard" animation.
The premise is simple: men think women are evil, women think men are barbarians and untrustworthy. It's like going back to when I was in school and thought girls carried weird diseases. The interaction resulting from this makes the episodes entertaining, if not always hilarious.
After watching the episodes a few times, it became clear that the characters are being developed. Each has a personal history that slowly reveals itself and makes the interactions between them understandable. I look forward to finding out more as the series continues.
The situations are not overtly sexual in this series, but the theme is adult in nature. (One viewing of the end credits should be enough to get the idea.)

My personal view:
If you're a mature viewer that enjoys anime with flying machines and somewhat adult humor, you'll probably like this series. I'd place this series in a similar line as Tenchi and Love Hina.

5.0 out of 5 stars Male Vs. Female April 15 2002
By Al
I picked this up at a store because 1.I travelled all the way, and 2.I'm not leaving without buying SOMETHING.So, this looked cool.So i bought it.The storyline is unique.Its about 2 worlds, separated by gender.The males have the planet Tarak.Females have Mejale. Hibki Tokai, a 3rd class citizen on Tarak, tries to hijack a government fighter to prove to the rest of the factory workers that he keeps his word.He becomes a prisoner on a battleship after getting caught, when the women start attacking.I won't spoil anymore.The graphics are SPECTACULAR. The first time CG and Anime came together and it worked out.Sound is, ok.I havent listened to the english dubbed yet.But it's worth buying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Boy-meets-girl space theme April 12 2002
By Joe
I like boy-meets-girl space themes with action and decent graphics, with slinky gals, occasional jiggling, people who aren't [bad], and this has them. I prefer anime where the genders mix and goofs happen and comedy occurs and sometimes there is heart break. The plot and story aren't necessarily new: Martian Successor Nadesico and a few other series have similar plot. There are pirates, transforming mecha, battles, glitzy affects, and so on just like others. But, it is told with enough original details to make it fresh (beleive me, I have watched a lot of shows, and a lot are pretty dull, so I won't say that without need).
Perfect? No. I am also looking for mature (not twisted nor peverted, just mature) themed anime along the lines of boy-and-girl-have-already-met-and-married-and-have-kiddies to get out of the kiddies in high-school level most are, but since most anime is intended for young kids and serial TV showing, I don't really complain that I don't find it. Series like these make the wait okay.
Nudity? Hmm, gotta look harder I guess. Haven't seen any real nudity in it. Maybe some of the reviewers haven't seen the show? (Or maybe they think of nudity as something other than really naked people?)
