Oh, this series is a blast. It has problems, but it is so compulsively watchable! Although I really hate the loli nurse, Paiway. She seems to have no purpose but to stir up conflict in the final episodes of the first season. The conflict there is, is the sudden huge mistrust of the men that comes almost out of nowhere because Dita was cutting onions and Paiway thinks Hibiki made Dita cry.
Seriously, two seconds of talking would have cleared it up. It's a conflict from a bad sitcom, basically.
Overall, my opinion is that Vandread is far better than it has any right to be. I realized this ages ago, but Vandread is basically the anime version of Star Trek Voyager, done right. Seriously. The women are the Federation, the men are the Maquis, the Earthlings
are the Borg, only still menacing, and you even get all the random planets that get visited, and Vandread has the additional strength of not being a show that was intended to go on for an indeterminate period of time.
