    Epic anime worth the watch!
    This was probably my favorite thing to ever come out of Toonami back in the day besides Read or Die the movie and Outlaw Star. This is such a nostalgia trip and an awesome action anime. Definitely worth the watch if you have time. It might not stand up to some more recent stuff but this was dark, gritty, and all around amazing when I was a kid.

    Well worth a watch for the story
    The story was very engaging and the world building was great. The pacing in each episode I thought was really good as well and they did a fantastic job of making you want to watch the next episode. I would suggest marathoning this.

    The music is nice and fitting for the show. It is nothing that stands out enormously but the end theme on the second episode is the most memorable to me. The ...

    Sometimes less is more
    This OVA series was fantastic. Although only four 28 minute episodes, this series felt like a full 13 episode series. The story was simple and very moving. As most war stories go, both sides have a story, and these four episodes tell both sides very well. Definitely a good watch, and worth every minute.

  • Short but Sweet Dystopia
    I was first introduced to this anime during the glorious days of Toonami. After nearly ten years I found it here! This needs to be watched with full attention or the viewers may get lost and lose important info. It's themes are more mature than, i feel, the Toonami audience procured.

  • Enjoyed This Anime For What It Was
    Original came across Blue Submarine No.6 back when it came on Toonami. The trailer that was shown on Toonami was pretty neat, so I decided to give it a watch. Wasn't too fond of the plot, but I was definitely digging the action and animation. Not an excellent anime, but worth keeping!

  • engrossing OVA/ 4 episode run
    Not what I expected at all. Genetically created life forms, mermaids(?), and man-imals out to destroy mankind because the evil whacko scientist had a few spare moments. I watched the subtitled version. I like subs. Production values, at the time of its creation must have been cutting edge. A GONZO Production, you can see connections to more modern animes in the Character design, music and color ...

    A good anime overall- with a glaring flaw
    Growing up, the only anime I watched were shows like Pokémon and Naruto, so I can say I viewed this without the Toonami nostalgia goggles on. And I've got to say, it's pretty good. The characters are engaging, even the ones we aren't meant to connect with at first and the ones with no dialogue at all, the setting is relatively original, and the overall plot is satisfying.

    ...Except for the CGI. ...

    One of the greatest anime ever!
    This is definitely one of from favorite animes. Ahead of its time for combining CGI and traditional animation, it tells a story for a dystopia future that is flooded by a mad man and his creations.

    Blue submarine no. 6 embark on a mission to end the conflict once and for all. I enjoyed the character development, mechanical desgins and the amazing soundtrack. Highly recommended for any fans of ...

    Took me way back!! Brought me back to my teens
    Although many "younger" people might not like it since there are newer and fancier stories now, but this was/is one of the best short animes that I've watched. The story is great and as always there is some philosophical points of view to consider. Great anime, I would recommend to all who are looking for something good and different to wathc.

    Is Blue Submarine No. 6 Very Good
    Yes. At its core its an older humanitiy's arrogance and nature vs. machine. The CGI is old and not very good, but the overall world was great, at least to me. Tetsu Hayami some how pulls off shirtless suspenders and has a lot of internal development. He interacts with Kino who wants revenge against the enemy. Summarized, Blue Submarine No.6 is a cool submarine battle show mixed with humanity ...
