  • Great action, HUGE lull in the middle
    There is a lot to like about this show. Naval battles! AI! Boobs! Guns! Technology! Strange 3D animation! Maybe aliens IDK! Supergenius kid! Talking teddy bear! Guy with dreadlocks! Anti-authority main character!

    It also starts out well, building the characters and world at a good pace, with action and drama at a fairly good balance. Then, around episode 5 the action starts to taper off. The ...

    Awesome 2.5D, Interesting Settings, Weak Tail
    The 2.5D is amazing, especially when more refinement is done after the 3D production. Adding the mystery in the story, the anime has good potential. Many characters' personalities are easily seen, and the battles are exciting. However, toward the end of the anime, there is much slice of life time, whose moments are not always interesting.

    (I had read the original manga before watching the ...

    One of the Best Animes
    This anime is really an amazing story. While the animation is a tad bit jerky and robot like, It is hardly noticeable. However, everything else in here really makes up for the tad bit of animation problems. There are so many great characters and personalities, and the development within them as the series goes on is excellent. There are also a few emotional moments which actually brought me to ...

  • Pianissimo to Fortissimo
    Wow. For such a short anime, this one really packs a punch. From the first episode to the last, nothing but nonstop action. I rated 4 stars mainly because of the length. I would have preferred a few more episodes to learn more about each of the Fog Models individual reasons for following the captain. I also would have liked to have learned more about the fog itself. All in all, worth a ...

  • Great show, wish it was longer
    Characters are likable and plot is fairly cohesive with nice battles! The animation style might turn off some people though. I only wish that they went more in-depth about some of the background such as the history, earlier battles between the humans and fog, or maybe how some of the other countries are faring. Hopefully there will be a sequel that will help flesh-out some of these details, but ...

Now about the Animation When i First saw it ( When i started to like the show ) i thought man that is ...

  • Just found this title, but it is pretty good!
    There are quite a lot of good review out there already, so I'll make this my personal impression.
    I like it. At first the CGI threw me off a little but it became much better starting episode 2, eventually becoming so natural that it looks really good. Intriguing storyline and plot, though they are not explained fully due to the short, 12 episodes length. Characters are great, and their voice ...

    "Confirmed?" Can't wait for season 2!!! (Long but worth the read)
    Season 2 has been demanded for a long time since people finished the anime. Look up the channel called: "Flying Dog" I'd say season 2 has been confirmed, there is a video that has the title and has different characters on it. Also check out the official website for the anime we want to see more of; aokihagane.com if you don't know japanese or have a translate program in your pc or whatever you ...
