  • An overall enjoyable show
    Arpeggio of Blue Steel is an anime that I am lucky to of found. I found this sci-fi war games anime to be something new to me. It wasn't just an attempt to be better than the recycled and modified story lines of a lot of other shows. I would suggest watching it or even giving it a try. A SOLID A.

    Surprisingly Enjoyed Very Much
    I do not write reviews but for this one I will, it was that good.

    Animation: 5/5
    It's all in cgi, which made all of the battle/action scenes amazing.
    If you do not mind cgi than the animation is amazing. This will vary by opinion, if you can't stand cgi you will have an issue with this show. Even if you do not like cgi this is near the top of cgi shows.

    Soundtrack: 5/5
    Nano! Enough ...

    Really like 3.5 - Nice enough show with some flaws.
    The verdict: This was a bit above average for a 12-episode timeslot filler. It is not great, certainly not a 5-star (which should be reserved for only high-quality AND highly entertaining shows), but it has some action and some effort in design and is entertaining. Very good for a watch once, but I'm unlikely to buy it. 3.5 stars.

    The good:

    Being a 12 episode series with a lot happening, ...

  • A very nice story, with interesting twists
    It's a very nice story, with action and "relax" moments well divided into the series. Let's hope for a second season though, because, as usual, there are lots of question mark left unresolved.

    Storia molto carina, che alterna momenti di azione e di relax in modo magistrale. Speriamo che arrivi presto una seconda stagione, perché, come è solito, vengono lasciati aperti moltissimi dubbi.

    Simply AMAZING!!! Hoping for a 2nd season!
    There a a lot of things to say about how incredible this anime is. So where to begin? The story in itself is amazing with presenting a unique world setup facing an unknown enemy. What I found extremely entertaining was the Fog ships developing their own unique personalities. Many cases created interactions that were intensely emotional to frickin' hilarious! Each ship's mental image is well ...

    5 Stars in Hope for Season 2
    I'll be honest, I just writing this review to try and bolster this anime's rapport in hopes that there will be a season 2 very soon.

    I didn't do the same for Attack on Titan. And believe you me, I enjoyed the hell out of that anime. But on my list of favourite animes, Arpeggio trumps Attack by a very small margin.

    Sooo, Studio Sanzigen, Arpeggio of Blue Steel, get on it. I'll be more hyped ...

    So far I'm quite impressed.
    I don't normally write reviews nor am I a big fan of Naval animes, but I like the idea of a living ship that can adapt and learn to live along side the very humans that she was designed to destroy. I really like the feel of it. I'm looking forward to seeing how the crew develops and how the Fog reacts to the MC's treatment of them.

    A show that will definitely take you by surprise
    What looked like a moeservice show with an impossible concept accomplished way more than I expected. A show completely aware of the humor they could have didn't fail to also bring intense emotion, action, and development. And for once, I can say I have finally had closure with an anime ending (It's been awhile).

    Best Anime of 2013 (IMO)
    This is my favorite anime of 2013 for a reason.

    For starters, let's address the big elephant in the room that turns people away: the different animation style. I'm going to be honest, at first, it looks like a video game, but after a while, you get used to it.

    Anyways, let's get on to the storyline. The plot of Arpeggio is one of the best out there. It follows Gunzou and his ship, I-401 ...

  • one of best sicfy of 2013 fall season
    the story kind jumps around put over it rich story line that feels rushed because of series length of 12 episodes this series could go on to 24. I hope more of mage find it way to ova or a movie or another anime series. The characters are general will developed. The series does expire deep themes. plus on top of that get really good action. fan service general mild and annoying I rate it 3 out ...
