  • 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 ...

  • It was good but i feel like it could be better.
    I had a good time watching this. it had good serious points and funny and or weird, weird points. but i feel like if it was a bit longer and dove into story and character development more. it would have been amazing. what we got was good. but like it said, it could have been better. I would recommend this anime to anyone.

    Fantastic, must watch series!
    This is one of those series that are so good, that when it's over you feel a sense of emptiness in your life and you question if you can move on without more of it in your life. =P lol I loved everything about this anime. No fan service, subtle humour, great story and characters, awesome action scenes, fantastic art. There is a significant amount of replay value here. I'll certainly be purchasing ...

  • Absolutely Amazing! Worth a watch
    Randomly found this anime, and decided to give it a watch. It is definitely one of my absolute favourites now, and it's saddening that there are only 12 episodes (that I flew through). Very excited to see the upcoming movies as well. Very high re-watch value with this one as well! Do yourself a favour and watch this

  • Remarkably entertaining
    Boyfriend and I decided to watch this on a lark, because truly, how terrible could this be after all the recommendations we'd gotten. Mental models, seen that on Andromeda, alien/mysterious invaders, been there before, oooh, a submarine. That's a bit of a change... Eight episodes later, he's swearing at the fact that he has work in the morning and making me promise on everything I hold dear I ...

  • The beauty of learning to become human
    This show has an EXTREMELY high rewatch value for me. A fantastic story of what it means to be human, and the beauty of experiencing emotions for the first time. This story left me in shock with how good it was. The premise laid out in the description for it is perfectly acceptable. The ships are all women, because people always name their ships after women, so the Fog thinks this is appropriate. ...

  • I thought it was really good!
    I'm causal anime watcher. I came across this on Netflix and I thought was real good. I liked the dichotomy between the dated appearance of the WWII era Japanese naval war ships and the advanced tech that resided within them. The concept of the ship minds were interesting too. I'm a real big fan of Blue Sub No. 6 and this series scratched that same itch. Definitely would re watch this series.
