  • Deep questions...for a submarine.
    This anime was really interesting, the characters were lively, and the plot wasn't too bad. The concept was outlandish and kind of restricted for my tastes and I did get bored a couple of times, thus it lost a star. However, the story plays out really well, and the climax of it all falls into place with what most might call a happy ending. However, I'll let you be the judge. I don't think this ...

  • Who knew battleships could be so sexy!!
    I don't write reviews on anything normally, however, this particular anime was great! Simply beautiful; the animation was spectacular through and through-- the opening alone was enough to suck me in. The plot is centered around the character development of the Fog and the action that takes place at sea during their development. It's a short anime, unfortunately, but short and sweet is also a ...

  • The best anime involving ships I have ever seen
    This show was WAY better than I expected it to be, very heart felt, serious, and yet comedic in its own special sense, I really hope this gets a second season in the near future, and I would like to thank SG all the effort they did as it was really well done and I would recommend it to anyone that loves anime and a serious yet funny plot.

  • Great show to watch!
    Moonhawk81's review sums it up pretty well so I won't repeat what he wrote. It's rare for anime to cover naval warfare, the alien twist & advanced technology is a big plus that makes this anime even better than expected. The virtual reality in which the aliens meet to discuss proper behavior and thinking and the importance of conformity was original and WELL done. I'm not a navy fan or anything ...

  • Explore humanity with the Blue Fleet
    It's all pros and no cons with this anime. Epic naval warfare, grasping and tear-jerking drama, and a unique animation style make this anime worth watching several times over. The cute female models are always a plus, and Arpeggio of Blue Steel is so tightly story-driven that nothing superfluous distracts from its grand plot.

    Arpeggio of Blue Steel - Songs of the Sea
    The world has been divided... the oceans are no longer safe, taken over by a mysterious fleet of incredibly advanced sentient ships known as the Fleet of Fog who appeared out of nowhere, blockaded all of the world's ports, and cut off all communication by air or water - effectively isolating the world's nations from each other and causing the gradual decline of civilization. One of these ships was ...

  • A Show You Must Watch
    I Don't really Do Reviews But
    First Off Let Me Just Say, I Loved This I Mean Absolutely Loved It ! Personally it refreshed my view on how it should be done with an anime. The animation on this was just brilliant. So The Soundtrack Is What Personally Hooked Me but what added to it was the storyline of it and whole fog aspect and again all that animation i mean ive seen some more modern shows with ...

  • Excellent show, hope there is a 2nd season
    I actually created an account here specifically to write this review. I watched this series following a review on Kotaku and was not disappointed. The story is very good although admittedly they could dive a bit deeper in the history of the Fog invasion. I really liked the characters, specially Hyuga and Takao and their relationships with the two main characters.

    All in all a very good anime ...

    There Better be a Season 2...
    I understand that television series in general only run for 12 or 13 episodes, but this series after starting the manga it was based off of gave me high hopes...then crushed them into a million little pieces. This series was hastily adapted as another "Cash Cow" anime after the manga seen some success.

    The animation and art style were both pretty good, but fail to make up for the watered down ...

  • Amazing Show - YOU MUST WATCH IT!!!
    This show gets you hooked from the first episode and just keeps getting better and better as it goes! I really hope they continue the series! The artwork was a little weird to me in the beginning with this need to be 3-dimensional but I soon got used to it and had no other issues with the series. I would not hesitate to recommend this to all my friends!
