    Naval battles don't sound interesting? watch it anyway.
    This is probably one of the best military animes i have seen recently. (not particularly hard to achieve since there arent that many). Since this is a naval based military action anime, if you really think its going to be 2 crews trying to play the board game "battleships" with each other, think again. the technology that is incorporated in the battles makes it much more exciting to watch than you ...

    Definitely a refresher
    Truly a nice breather for me from the normal anime that I watch and I must say that I was quite impressed by this. Between the action sequences and the comedy, this series stands out as one of my new favorites. I really recommend it for anyone that's looking for a new anime to watch!

  • A great anime to consider.
    By far this is one of the best anime I have come across, almost everything about it is awesome. In this anime the ice caps melted do to global warming raising the sea level, out of nowhere highly advance ships appeared call "The Fleet of Fog" and started attacking human ships driving them out of seas. What make this anime good is one being its distinctive artwork which I enjoy, it gives the anime ...

  • Heart-Warming and Exciting!
    This anime is a pure fun watch, and the story itself is enjoyable. It has it's very funny and home-type moments, then it also has it's serious moments. If you don't have much anime to watch, I highly suggest this as I think it's one of the best for the season.

  • A Rather Suprisingly Entertaining Series Though A Bit Rushed
    Wasn't sure what to expect of this one, though it does seem rather rushed at the beginning, he is a student, touches the sub, and it activates, and the next thing we know he is at battle with a crew of his classmates. Something is missing, which seeing as Seven Sea (according to amazon) is going to release the Manga starting July 1 2014, might be able to find out what led up to that.

    My initial thoughts...
    My first impressions were good; the naval combat, while sci-fi in nature, looks rather grounded and believable. It took a moment for me to realize the characters were cel-shade CG, they are well enough rendered. I will admit after watching for a bit you will noticed the chinks in the 3D models. Sadly lackluster rendering stands out a bit too obviously in the supporting cast. The ships themselves ...

    This anime is amazing
    If you're at the point where you don't really know what anime you want to watch, I highly suggest watching Arpeggio of Blue Steel as it keeps you wanting more with each episode. It's great fun to watch as-well.

    This anime needs more love
    Battleships with insane weapons, girls with insane powers that control them, incredible tactics and strategies, plus Iona acting out the movements of the submarine, what more could you want from this show? Oh wait, the fact that it can actually make you tear up too.
    I've watched every episode, and at first, I thought it was "meh". But after a couple more episodes, this show has really hooked me ...

    Amazing all around series
    Going into this anime, I expected naval warfare to be the most excruciating/ boring show yet. Well... I was pleasantly surprised. Not only did the first episode successfully create a compelling story, each episode was better than the one before. Here are my main thoughts

    Story: Naval warfare for the most part with intriguing side stories or character revelations on land. The anime clearly shows ...
