Set in 2142, Nadesico is a fast-paced, offbeat, science fiction manga. Nadesico is reminiscent of classic anime of the past, combing elements of Macross and Gundam with an Asamiya twist. When Mars is attacked by alien invaders, the United Earth government deploys the large battleship Nadesico into space to fight the alien menace. Manned by a mostly female crew led by the lovely captain Yurika Misumaru, the Nadesico also has the accidental hero, Akito Tenkawa. In this volume, Akito searches Mars for clues to his past, and a mysterious space cruiser from the past appears—the Yamato (shades of Star Blazers)! When the Nadesico’s crew is reassigned, Yurika receives a mysterious summons...a call to her as the Shaman Queen of the Yamato Pantheon! Original story and art by fan-favorite Kia Asamiya (Dark Angel, Star Wars Episode One: The Phantom Menace Manga)!
