The World's Fair, Paris, 1889: a young inventor crosses paths with an enigmatic girl and her pet lion.

Thus begins an epic adventure inspired by Jules Verne's masterpiece 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

Join Nadia and Jean as they travel the high seas in search of Nadia's homeland and her past, their only clue the mysterious jewel Nadia wears. Can they unravel the Secret of the Blue Water before it is too late? Discover Nadia, Secret of Blue Water, the animated series beloved by millions, and find out for yourself.

We like it because:

Inspired by the Jules Verne classic ​20,000 Leagues Under The Sea​, the award-winning ​Nadia​has stood the test of time, ranking alongside ​Neon Genesis Evangelion, Fullmetal Alchemist​and Naruto ​as one of the all-time iconic anime series.

From the legendary creative team of Hideaki Anno and Hayao Miyazaki itís little wonder ​Nadia has retained its sparkle 25 years on. Itís still a magical piece of storytelling, filled with quirky characters, fantastical twists, and stunning animation. And now that itís on Blu-ray for the very first time, ​all 39 episodes have never looked - or sounded better.

Whether youíre a hardcore anime fan or just discovering the genre, ​Nadia: Secret of the Blue Water ​is essential viewing!
