Synopsis:

When Akito Tenkawa went looking for answers about his parents' deaths, he had no idea that he'd be indoctrinated into the spaceship Nadesico not only as a cook, but also as a mecha pilot – a job he wants nothing to do with! Alongside his childhood friend Yurika, stoic Ruri, otaku Gai and other misfit crewmates, Akito and the Nadesico crew find themselves in the middle of a brutal war against both the dreaded Jovian Lizards, and the military itself, who wants the civilian ship under their control...

If you like Kiddy Grade, You might like Nadesico. The main difference is that nadesico kinda solely focusses on the space, mecha and spaceships aspect, while there is a little romantic story behind it. Kiddy Grade on the other hand has alot heavier drama spect and no romantic story at all.

Both of these series are humorous science ficiton. Lost Universe is a little crazier and more clearly parodies a specific work (Star Wars), while Nadesico parodies both space battleship anime (Yamamoto) and any giant robot fighting anime ever made. They both have actual plots, but it takes a little time to get to them. Nadesico is more clearly a parody, and spends quite a bit of time humorously making fun of anime and anime-watchers in general. Slayers is a little crazier and features less realistic character design and art.

And will he ever end up meeting that girl from his past?

Again with the romantic comedies... Well, if you ignore the fact that its also a war epic. Nadesico is probably the only anime I have seen so far that has a hapless female chasing her object of affection fruitlessly. Don't miss the action and emotion in this marvelous anime that no one should miss.

Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi

If you liked the parody undertones in Nadesico, you'll probably like Abenobashi too.

Both series involve the colonization of Mars, and do it in drastically different ways. Focused around war with a slight touch of romance, both series had a lot to offer.
