Alien invaders continue to pummel Earth's forces and our military strength is about to run out. Fed up with waiting for the military to get its act together, the arms manufacturer Nergal builds its own state-of-the-art, top-of-the-line battle cruiser, a ship with the tools to annihilate the warring aliens and end the war. The only problem is that with all trained fighters already enlisted in the military, the only people who can pilot the Nadesco are a rag-tag team of rascals with no military background. From a cook to a ditzy girl to a child prodigy, the crew of the Nadesco might have to count on the ship's technological prowess to get them through the battle ahead, a battle that will include not just friction against malicious aliens, but against Earth's military leaders, who want the Nadesco for themselves. Martian Successor Nadesco has enjoyed wild popularity both in Japan and in the United States and is frequently cited as one of the most popular anime of all time.
