Then you haven't seen the whole story. Each guy is important. (Yes even Bart). And while Hibiki is the major star of the show, each guy has his little spotlight and is shown how important he is to the team. (Though Bart's story is very sad).

Bart is awesome, after that episode everyone loved Bart. There was a time when that episode is always mentioned as one of the best episodes in all anime.

Well of course. Rule of thumb: whenever
Spoiler for Do not click if you haven't watched it:

It becomes best ep in the whole anime.

Everyone is likable in this anime, that's why I rate it quite high in my list. They got proper development, and thing got wrapped up nicely. Still wait for a day where this one appear in SRW, although the setup is kinda hard.

Yea Vandread is a good mecha anime, at the peak of Gonzo's prime.

Hibiki is really an amazing super robot pilot, the cast was colourful and had great development. The mecha were quite interesting and the 3D fights are pretty good for its time.

Also I used to post in another forum on how I'd expect Vandread would be in SRW, using Alpha 3's squad system and similar stats. It has spoilers, only for those who finished watching both seasons:

Bart is living proof that going bald = 100% more cool.

The only Gonzo series that I really remember is Transformers: Galaxy Force, and I got into that more because of my long-standing Transfandom than anything.



How is the Japanese voice cast for the show? As I said, the eps on the Funimation site only had the dubs...

The Japanese cast is great, http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/ency...ime.php?id=269

They're a pretty experienced cast and gave the characters pretty good interactions. It was a time when moe wasn't very well developed concept in the west, so there were people who don't like Dita's moe pitch. Dita was my favourite girl though.

My favourite is Gascogne and her girls going 'Smile smile~!' lol

Talking about Gascogne, well...
Spoiler for Again, do not click if you haven't watched it yet, and there is no second warning this time:


One thing about Vandread, is that I can't remember character names, even my favorite one (the silver hair girl with bird like fusion), except for Hibiki, Bart and Dita.

Well, you're new to anime then and Japanese names could be a little hard to memorise.

I can remember all main characters, all of them who piloted something, but not the rest lol

i agree, he bangs both Dita and Meia, even if it is off screen and after anime was finish. That still put him one up on a lot of whinny mecha pilots.

Wait, that actually happened?

And this show is special to me. It's the show that brought me into anime in the first place.

Its ending was in a word, perfect.

read the earlier pages, there was a sequel plan that feature Hibiki/Dita's daughter and Hibiki/Meia's daughter. Unfountnately the sequel never got the green light.

Vandread seems to be one of those benchmark anime that made people into anime fans, I'm not sure how it happened, but it really made Gonzo famous at that time.

The ending was one of the better mecha endings as well.

I can say that at least for our home country, it showing on TVmobile at the early morning while kids are taking bus to school made a big impact. Well at least for me. And since my first full show's a robot show, that made me a mecha fan from the outset.

I remember a friend gaping at the scene where Hibiki walks into Jura's boobs, and that was a time when ecchi isn't all that well-known too.

lol I see.

I was watching subs some time before it aired on TVMobile and always had been watching anime on TV so Vandread naturally came into my attention and I just watched it.

Vandread is a good first mecha anime to have. At least moderately better than Gundam Wing, or having a depression from Evangelion as a first mecha anime lol

EDIT: lol at the ecchi.

.. h-how could you forget the name of the blue goddess, Meia Gisborne?!?!?! BURN HERETIC

*ehem*

Anyways, Vandread may not have been my first anime, but it was the first I've seen with completely 3D CG mecha action, and I loved every minute of it.

Yea Vandread has really good 3D animation, I still think its better than some 3D used these days.

I swear if I got to any of those angsty series first, I wouldn't even be here. I already couldn't take those two episodes of Hibiki's raison d'etre angst at all back then, and now I know that is relatively light by anime standards.

Yeah on hindsight I love my laziness for not being able to get up early to catch Gundam Wing even though I thought it looked awesome. :3

@Lowe: Yeah. That was one of my first impressions. IT WAS GLORIOUSLY SHINY!

Agreed. Even though detail, effect and shading have gone up in recent years, in terms of fluidity of movement and actual integration, Vandread still tops many of today's anime using 3D CGI (the only one I've seen come close is Kirameki Project, and that was a 5 episode OVA).

For nice mecha 3D CG, Macross is the best for recent years. Aquarion had good 3D animation though it looks awkward at times.

I cannot remember what was my first harem or ecchi anime, could be Vandread.

Super Vandread was super sleek, super cool, it reminds me of Cybuster and the Lord of Elementals.
