A beautifully drawn but schizophrenic anime, Amazing Nurse Nanako tries hard to be everything to everyone. It has a "mysterious past" element - like Nadia or Agent Aika; "political machinations" - like Gasaraki or Neon Genesis Evangelion; and a "cute android" - like All Purpose Cat Girl Nuku Nuku or Saber Marionette J; all topped off with the bouncing breasts of Knights of Ramune, Jungle de Ikkoku, or Cutey Honey. It's an okay outing for the older crowd but may leave some feeling guilty or slightly dirty after watching.

The animation by RADIX is smooth, well colored, and one of the better computer colored videos. The character designs by Toshinari Yamashita are fun but they seem to own a great debt to the distinctive (and prolific) Yuji Moriyama. The DVD deserves special mention for an excellent interface design.

Volume 1: "Memories of You" Plot Summary:

Dr. Ogami is a brilliant surgeon and scientist. He has his own hospital on the edge of a military base where he occasionally performs special operations. Assisting him are Dr. Kuron, a colleague of his departed grandfather and Komanechi, a herbalist. And then there is Nanako.

She is the combination housekeeper-nurse and subject of constant torture by Dr. Ogami. She also has a very curveaous body and a mysterious past. The action in the first episode revolves around an object recovered from space but by the end of the second episode, the story is more focused on Nanako and her past. There are many subplots (mainly involving the military and the Catholic church) that add mystery.
