The story follows a young man named Hibiki Tokai, a factory worker from Tarak who wants more than anything to be a mecha pilot. When his attempt to steal a HumongousMecha get him thrown into the brig of reconstructed battleship, things seem to be looking down...until the ship gets attacked by SpacePirates, and Hibiki, a {{bishonen}} doctor, a cowardly officer and a malfunctioning robot wind up as prisoners on a ship full of women. [[RockBottom Things couldn't possibly get any worse]].

* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: The men from Tarak are generally portrayed as this: the commander of the Vanguard unit even goes out of his way to say "It is a good day to die" [[spoiler:before drawing first blood in the most {{badass}} way during the final battle]]

Added DiffLines:

* BorrowedBiometricBypass: In Episode 1 of Stage 1, Hibiki uses a false palmprint copied off a person with the right clearance to sneak into the Ikazuchi's Vanguard bay in order to take his 'partner'. It almost failed because he forgot to moisten the copied prints, which he manages to do at the last second with some spit.

* MySensorsIndicateYouWantToTapThat: Pyoro can ''smell the sexuality'' when he winds up inside the cockpit of Vandread Dita with the two pilots, much to their mutual embarassment.

* {{Fanservice}}: While there was indeed quite some fanservice due to the shapely pirate ladies from Mejale, the biggest does of fanservice is in the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGu8UKD0kR0 first credits sequence]], that had Dita, Jura, and Meia posing sensually in the background to the sultry, throaty vocals of [=SiLC=] singing the song ''Himegoto''.

** In the ChristmasEpisode, everyone except Dita had this reaction to the video showing a man-woman couple and their daughter.
** Everyone except Dita and Hibiki. Hibiki was more subdued than Dita, but you can tell he liked the idea.

* AdultFear: One of Meia's traumatic flashbacks is absolutely laden with this - [[spoiler:separated from ''both'' her parents due to an accident, as they chose to stay behind and send her out on a crowded escape vessel crowded with other children. After that, she was rendered a homeless orphan who was forced to become a street rat until she was recruited by Magno Vivan]].

* KarmaHoudini: During his run as a villain before [[spoiler: his HeelFaceTurn]], Rabat got away with a number of misdeeds, including brutally beating Hibiki and even selling out the crew to Earth later on. Not once does he ever pay for any of the bad things he's done.

* SupportingHarem: While Hibiki is clearly romantically interested only in Dita, Jura and Misty also want him. Jura's seems more like TheTease, but Misty and Dita eventually butt heads about their rivalry regarding Hibiki.
