  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • A Review: Arpeggio of Blue Steel
    The plot is great. This has the element of a harem anime but the main story is so interesting that you may or may not notice this has harem anime elements.

    Character designs are good. The naval ships and submarines designs are great as well.

    Still wish there is a second season.

  • Eagerly waiting for next season!
    Where do we come from?
    What are we?
    Where are we going?

    These questions are asked by everyone as they go through life. But apparently these questions are asked much more frequently if you are Japanese or a alien AI in the form of an earth naval vessel.

    Even though this is the first season, they start out two years after the beginning of the story. Expect some things to not make sense ...

  • In one word: "Shazam"
    Amazing anime. Not only did it make me laugh out loud with how funny it could be, but there were also bits where I got a bad case of the feels from the story. I loved the character development of the Fog AI. The only downside was the somewhat weak ending that included a "let's hug it out" moment. Overall definitely worth the watch.

  • Absolutely obessed with this series
    I can understand some people cannot get over the art style of the anime. If that type of situation does happen to you, I highly recommend reading the manga. It has such a wonderful storyline and plot line. I know the anime at times makes this series appear to be a Harem for Chihiya Gunzou, but it is really not. It is a beautiful story about alien ships learning what it means to be human. To care ...
