Nope.Nope.NOPE. I am pretty pissed. OK, first i thought i was only the ships that would be CG, but its the whole thing!?
That aside, i tried to enjoy the story but it kept jumping around too much and at times it felt rushed.
First he is on a ship with his crew, then it goes back in time to when he meet the blue fog ship girl, then it goes forward 2 yrs. and they are fighting for a last hope for humanity against the other fog ships? C'mon man, that was painful...
So disappointed that this was one of the fall 2013 anime i was most looking forward too. (Dropped)

This series has been on my radar for a while. The CG animation is different from what I'm used to, but its not bad. I only wish they would have more than 12 episodes, but hey a second season could be down the road.

Interesting animation. It is basically like what RWBY could look like if it had a bigger budget/work crew.

Also liking the concept. Will need to see a few more episodes. Right now the battle scenes and the various Fog ship girls are what is holding my interest.

Speaking of the ship girls, why the heck is Takao, one of the(currently) "bad" ship girls, the poster character for the series on CR? I wanted to watch the PV, but it wouldn't play no matter what, so I just jumped into the first episode and I had assumed the character that ends up being Takao was the main or a main protagonist due to her being the sole character on CR's "poster" for the series.

Episode 1
I-401,The Blue Steel.

Kind of cliche that I-401 just started working when Gunzou touched it.

Obliviously implied that Gunzou's dad was I-401's previous captain.

Squishy,squishy,lol.

Gunzou,a traitor of humanity and Iona,a traitor of The Fog.A perfect pair.Looking forward to seeing more of their backstory.

CG wasn't that bad,I'm somewhat use to it already.Liked the character designs of the Iona,Takao and the other warship girls.The battle scenes were alright too.

Seems next episode with be a battle against Takao.She my favorite out of all the girl and she's the hottest imo.

This is explained as the story progresses.

While the CG might not be my favorite thing, I think I can bear with it. It's interesting and I want to see more of those girls.

CG is a bit jarring, but I'm still perplexed as to why multi-thousand ton warships of unknown origin have avatars that are just cute girls. I think I've been in the military too long, or have been watching anime too long. Nothing says war like cute girls. -_-.

Still, interesting premise, and the warship designs have a bit of WWII flavor to them.

While I feel the animation could have been smoother, this was quite good.

Yea, the animation was different, but it's also interesting to see the different battleship girls having different personalities. Reminds me of how Eureka changed throughout Eureka Seven. I wonder if we will see something similar here. Anyways, music was great and I did enjoy the animation after I got accustomed to it during the episode.

The CG could be a bit better, I've seen some pretty good anime CG (Pretty Cure endings for example) so this isn't quite at the top level of quality

but story seems interesting so I'm giving it another few episodes.
