About Martian Successor Nadesico Prince of Darkness Movie DVD
Martian Successor Nadesico: Prince of Darkness is a sequel to the TV series.
Two years have passed since the Great War. Akito and Yurika have vanished. The Jovians and the Earthlings have joined forces and Ruri is now captain of Nadesico B. As the popularity of Boson Jumping grows, a vast transportation network has been developed. Dubbed the Hisago Plan, this network of Chulip portals holds the answers to the mysteries behind Bose particles and their power. If those secrets should fall into the wrong hands, it could mean big trouble.
And big trouble there is. A Martian splinter group has launched an offensive, leaving the United Forces befuddled and desperate. So much so, in fact, that the former crew of the Nadesico is called back to active duty for a special unsanctioned mission to save us all. Does this menagerie of misfits have what it takes? Who will win the race for the Boson technology? And what the heck happened to Akito and Yirika?

Ratings & Reviews
TV Series was better but a fitting send-off to Nadesico
First off before you watch this title.. google Nadesico the blank of 3 years and read the summary. This is required before you watch this movie as I will explain.
Prince of Darkness picks up 3 years after the Nadesico TV series... the events of the where and why are explained in the "Blank of 3 years" and the movie starts up assuming your familiar with them. If not things are very different and the movie has a very different tone compared to the more comical TV Series.
Pros, Plot, new Nadesico-C ship.. Ruri (no longer loli) Ruri, and did I mention Ruri :).
Cons.. This movie appears very dated.. mostly because of the CGI which is used quite heavily. Ironically the original TV series from 1996 does not look as dated as this movie does.
also there was a game released in 1999 for the Sega Dreamcast called Nadesico: The Mission which takes place after the events of Prince of Darkness...
