Show #189: Nadia: The Secret Of Blue Water


Everybody knows Hideaki Anno from Neon Genesis Evangelion and how he used that show as an outlet for some of his personal problems, but what the hell happened to his mind that produced that vivid tableau of grief and depression? Enter Nadia, an outwardly bright and cheerful anime that may have since been unfairly mired in the issues surrounding it rather than appreciated for the contents themselves. A popular property in its heyday, does The Secret Of Blue Water and its Jules Verne-inspired adventures have anything to offer a modern audience 30 years later beyond behind-the-scenes gossip? Ancient civilisations, wondrous technology and obligatory Gainax bounce await alongside the usual tangents as well as our Post-Podcast Repaste. Prepare to surface!
