The space opera continues...the enemy's origins are revealed...the mission is clear.
Hibiki remains the centre of attention of the girls aboard the ship, but what to do about it, he knows not. His confusion intensifies upon the arrival of a new character Misty Cornwell, who brings with her a truth about the relationships of men and women which has since been forgotten in time.
Meanwhile, the shocking origin of their enemy becomes apparent and both men and women band together, determined to triumph against an force that is both their biggest threat and part of the key to their survival.
Taking a decidedly more serious and focused plot, Vandread: The Second Stage brings all the humour of Series One back down to Earth by focusing in on how their predicament came about, and what must be done about it.
