The protagonist of the series is Nanako Shichigusa, a very buxom 16-year-old girl who works as a maid at Dr. Kyogi Ogami's hospital. Nanako tends to do things wrong and is very clumsy. Ogami usually treats Nanako in a cruel manner (such as yelling at her, threatening her, and subjecting her to physical abuse). However, during the climax of each episode, Ogami rescues Nanako from whatever predicament she's managed to get herself into over the course of the story. A lot of the series revolves around Nanako and Ogami's relationship. Amazing Nurse Nanako also has a plot that includes the American military, the Catholic church, and science fiction experiments.
Nanako is actually a cyborg experiment conducted by Dr. Ogami; however, she became too strong and his plan failed. It turns out the Nanako we meet in the series is the third clone of the original Nanako, who died at the age of 20 from a mysterious illness. So far, the previous two Nanako clones have died of the same mysterious illness at age 20. Dr. Ogami has made it his goal to try to cure the "Nanako illness." It also turns out that the Pentagon and the Vatican are trying to resurrect Jesus for the Second Coming, and it has been decided that Nanako will be the one to undergo an operation to give birth to the new Jesus. However, Nanako is not aware that she is a subject for this experiment.
Amazing Nurse Nanako is an OVA series that is definitely aimed at an older male audience. First, Nanako's large breasts are focused on rather heavily, and there are also a number of "fanservice" panty shots of Nanako, which is an indication that the series is not being aimed at younger viewers. From what Iíve read online, it sounds like thereís nudity involved in later episodes. Also, the whole plot about trying to resurrect Jesus is not a story that is being aimed at a younger audience. I thought the story was a little "out there" for my tastes, and it's not an anime I plan to watch again anytime soon. Personally, I would recommend Amazing Nurse Nanako to anime viewers who are 17 or 18 years of age and older.
