We like it because:
Inspired by the Jules Verne classic 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, the award-winning Nadiahas stood the test of time, ranking alongside Neon Genesis Evangelion, Fullmetal Alchemistand Naruto as one of the all-time iconic anime series.
From the legendary creative team of Hideaki Anno and Hayao Miyazaki it’s little wonder Nadia has retained its sparkle 25 years on. It’s still a magical piece of storytelling, filled with quirky characters, fantastical twists, and stunning animation. And now that it’s on Blu-ray for the very first time, all 39 episodes have never looked - or sounded better.
Whether you’re a hardcore anime fan or just discovering the genre, Nadia: Secret of the Blue Water is essential viewing!
