Vandread

Show Summary

Vandread - Adventure, Comedy, Mecha, Science Fiction, Shounen (May contain violence, bad language, nudity)...

In a distant future where men and women live on separate planets, a lowly mechanic named Hibiki has his eyes on piloting a Vanguard, a mecha fighting machine built by the male military. He sneaks his way onto a military space ship at a time when female pirates attack with their ships called Dreads. In the middle of the battle, the male ship and female ship accidentally collide and merge into a new ship, later called the Nirvana, leaving Hibiki and two other men stranded with a crew full of women far off in the depths of space. Now, men and women must learn to live with one another just to survive against a new threat to all of humankind. Filled with great action, blossoming love, and 3D animation, Vandread (whose name comes from when a Vanguard combines with a Dread) comes from Gonzo Studios (Blue Submarine No. 6, Gatekeepers).moreless

  • This is one of my Top 10 shows, definitely! Well done to the creators! And "Trust"...is unbelievable.

    Hibiki Tokai is a boy who lives on a planet called Tarak, a world where only men live. These men are waging a war against the women from Mejale. In an assault by the women, Hibiki the mechanic was caught in all of that, and he was taken to the women ship, Nirvana, as a prisoner, along with another two men, a doctor, Duero McFile, and a pilot, Bart Garsus, who became the only male members and prisoners of Nirvana. Since the women from Nirvana couldn't defend against the male assaults and the Earth forces, they asked for help from these men. Duero became the official doctor of the ship, Bart became the pilot, but Hibiki couldn't find his true purpose on the ship. There was a robot called Vanguard on the ship that was supposed to guard it, but without a pilot, it was useless. Hibiki was tasked to pilot the Vanguard, but he never did anything except mechanics on Tarak, so he wasn't skilled with controlling a Vanguard. But he faced his fears and went out with his robot to help the women. Dita Liebely, Meia Gisborn, and Jura Basil Elden are members of Nirvana, and they are pilots of Dreads, robots who fight in the space battles. All of these people have a special connection...a connection that can help them in their war against Earth...

    Vandread is one of the best animated shows ever made. It's got action, romance, sci-fi, comedy, and CGI animation. But the thing I love the most in the show is the song Trust, the 1st season opening. Fell in love with it the first time it hit my ears. And the thing I hate the most is that the show is so short, only 26 episodes in two seasons! Bring back Vandread!moreless
  • This show is awesome, and funny!

    I first watched this show on DVD when I was down in Florida in 2006. After the first volume, I really liked it. Isn't it strange how men, and women would be living on 2 different worlds: Tarrak, and Mejeir. This show is about Hibiki Tokai, a young, selfish boy who lived on Tarrak. One day the Mejeirian army attacks Tarrak, and Hibiki, Bart, and Duello are captured aboard a Mejeirian ship. Just before being captured, Hibiki wakes up after an explosion, and finds hiself looking at a Mejeirian soldier. This soldier happens to be Dita, a young, crazy, bubbly girl who's trying to talk to Hibiki. Once the ship melds the one Tarrak, and Mejeir ship together, the ship becomes the Nirvana. Onboard the Nirvana Hibiki, and Dita have many funny moments. One of them is the one when Hibiki was going to the bathroom, and Dita was inside his stall wondering how men go to the bathroom. That part was hilarious! The dialog in this show is excellent. The battles are fun, and action-packed. Some of the stuff that the crew say is really funny. The humor in this show is good. Overall, excellent dialog, great music, and humor, lovable characters.moreless

  • Men are from Taraak and women are from Majere. This could get interesting….

    9.8
    There is no other way to describe this show but enjoyable. First, there are three men and about 30-40 women on one ship, the Nirvana. In this universe men and women do not live together or live on the same planet for that matter; oh they are also at war. So with that in mind much of the comedy is from how the two sexes start to mingle and accept on another. The character development is amazing; all of the characters, even the ship, go through so many changes that none of them are the same when this first season ends. The relationship between Hibiki and Dita is the primary focus of the series with a secondary focus on the Harvester Fleet. The entire crew of the ship is interested in the relationship between Hibiki and Dita, subconsciously hoping to see a true romance unfold in front of them. Visually the show is stunning. The space fights are well done with some amazing eye candy done with CG. The mechs used in this series are unique and to be honest awesome looking. Three Dreads(female fighters) and the Vangard(Hibiki/male fighter) can combine to create a more powerful fighter/weapon, the Vandread. As for the music/score, it encompasses many different types of music from rock, techno, and even some orchestral. Overall this is a very well balanced anime that I fully enjoyed. If you liked the Full Metal Panic series you will like this.moreless
  • hibiki tokai is a boy who is trying to find is existence, however that isn't easy when you're on a ship filled with women and you have two other guys and a robot to comfort you.moreless

    9.0
    A good show all things considered with a great storyline to go along with it. The fact that men and women seperated and still found ways to reproduce was amazing in the context it was used for. I give vandread a 9 out of 10 for being a great show if you know what i mean.
