  • Possibly a true Epic for cinema!
    When I first started to watch this series here, it reminded me of s style of Anime that aired about 10 years ago. And when I began the series here on Crunchyroll, my first thoughts was that it was pretty predictable as to what each next episode was to be. And when Sci-Fi takes fake and turns into reality, or possibly being real. That's when Arpeggio comes to the seen! With a drama fit for the big ...

    Grey Lady Down, or Miniskirt Battleships
    This Anime is sleek, jagged, soft and hardcore all rolled into a Torpedo. Lets start with the story. The story is pretty good with excellent character development over a short time, and by good, I mean that you can see the subtle changes occur, when they occur. With some of the characters it's very easy to spot, with others it's almost impossible to tell until something is revealed. Then when ...

    Great Series a few flaws tho.
    A series that follows the crew of the submarine I-401 during a time of war between humans and an advanced AI (artificial intelligence) naval fleet known as the "Fog". The series starts off many years into the future after the "Fog" randomly appeared, and destroyed most country's navel forces. The "Fog's" main focus was ships (of all types) and all forms of communication between the nations.

    The ...

    One of the Best Sci-Fi anime i've watched
    When i saw the picture, i personally thought it was gonna be boring. But after the very FIRST episode i just couldn't stop watching. Anyone who likes the film Battleship should really watch it.

    Is the Fog from Germany ?
    When no one know from where the Fog came from then why the 401 Sub have a german text on it? So can it be that Germany build them ?

    When you think now what I'm talking about, watch the opening when you see the I-401 is passing by, you can see on the sub

    Dropped it After Episode 8
    I was watching this to see where it would go, but by the time episode 8 rolled around, it seemed to be going in circles. The characters, while beautifully drawn, but lack real substance to them - there are simply too many questions left hanging with more and more piled on (and the newer ones looked more "because it's cool" than looking like there is any possible believable answer.)

    Wow. This is simply amazing.
    I first watched this show on a whim when I saw it had been released for the new season. I was immediately hooked. The storylines following the challenges the Fog girls go through in trying to figure out who they are, what they want, and where they belong are absolutely beautiful. But the positives of the show don't stop there. In addition to an amazing storyline the combat is absolutely brilliant. ...

    stiff character animation
    The story is great, i like the idea of the fog fleet and the ships being their own persons.....but the cel shade animation kills it for me. If it was just on the ships This would be a 5 star, but i just cant watch it when all the people are animated like this, all of their movements seem stiff, clunky and unnatural, and the way their mouths move when they talk feels the same. I really want to get ...

    Arpeggio of Blue Steel(good)
    This an amazing anime in my view, it may have a few quirks but it grips the attention. Its animation quality is also commendable in the fact that most of the time the mouth matches the words instead of the mouth moving after the words have already been said.

  • What makes us human - or just smart sand
    This has been a pleasant surprise watching this series. Started totally confused by the direction or story development. But, well thought out scenes, crisp character design and a soft innocence from something calling itself a weapon.

    I should have just smiled and move on, but, there goes that but again. It drew you in and you look for more. More than 8 episodes in and I wait for the next.
