Plot Summary


Living by the sea, protecting the sea, and journeying across the sea... They're the Blue Mermaids!

Because of a shift in tectonic plates around 100 years ago, Japan lost much of its area to submergence. To preserve Japan's territories, coastal cities sprung up, one after the other. Eventually, they became marine cities, and along with the expansion of sea-lanes to connect them, the need arose for a sizable staff to protect the seas.

At the same time, maritime jobs were becoming more popular among women. Hence, the Blue Mermaids, tasked with keeping the seas safe, had become every female student's dream job. This is when childhood friends Akeno Misaki and Moeka China enroll in a marine high school in Yokosuka, along with other girls who share their goal of becoming a Blue Mermaid.

Just so you know, this show is also on Funimation the same day as Crunchyroll unlike in the past where Aniplex shows airing on both places were on a one week delay.

Episode 1

And it begins with Mike dreaming big, and the whole stepping on a banana peel joke as Mike and Moka meet up again after nine years. Even though Mike's grades are nothing to sniff at, she is appointed as the captain as Furushou sees that she has the captain's mentality. On the maiden voyage, the girls are already running into trouble with Furushou firing at the Harekaze to test the girls. Apologizing didn't work, so Mike decides to fire a torpedo even though that's not what she wanted to do. But that turns out to be a bad decision as the ship is mutinying. That's a pretty good start here, and this has the feel of Girls und Panzer with girls doing manly stuff like this. I'm on board for the time being.

Episode 1

Yeah, this is definitely not the typical slice of life with cute girls just doing cute things.

It gave me the Girls und Panzer vibe but with naval themes like the battleships. Aniplex really pushed this show with their promotions so I expect good things coming from the show. So far, I think it's fairly good, exceeded my initial expectations. There's even some naval action too, something that I did not anticipate until seeing the episode. The main girl Akeno got promoted to captain...was not expecting that either.

Noticed the official site updated today as well.



Lesson to be learned from the episode: Don't be late on first day on deck.

Episode 1

The series has potential, but it does have some moments that don't work too well. Still, i'm curious on what it has to offer

Well I know one thing this show has going for it, merchandising! https://twitter.com/hai_furi/status/718826651191091204 32 characters so 32 keychains.
Probably going to be that one I'll end up really enjoying for some odd reason. Targetted it as one of my ones to watch this season based on the look alone but not what I was expecting since it has a Arpeggio with a character style from Umaru.

Episode 1: In a Pinch on Our First Voyage

Wow that was really surprising. I was expecting cute girls doing cute things but I got some legit battleship warfare. Despite them being cute girls the action was really good.

Wonder why this is happening though. Why would they attack first year students? I don't know but it has me hooked. It just happened out of nowhere and I wasn't prepared for it.

I like the characters so far, I was wondering why the whole class looked unique and not just characters in the background. Looks like each one is going to have a personality so that's good.

Was really surprised at how it all played out, really was just only expecting CGDCT but damn. Looking forward to the next one

Well, that sure got serious pretty quickly. The characters seem pretty generic so far, but the story has me pretty much hooked already. Definitely coming back next week for more of this one.

Maybe the U.S. should have named the WAVES in World War 2 Blue Mermaids instead

Out of all the shows this season, and I must have started at least 15 of them, this one's premise seems the most ridiculous. High school students put in charge of warships? Sailing out on the first day after meeting a few minutes/hours before? This version of Japan has a scary amount of faith in their youth. I don't think they're even of age to apply for driving licenses.

With that said, I was fairly entertained. I'm digging all the details they've put into the ships. Looking forward to next week. 32 characters? That's quite a bit.

I'm enjoying this, I wasn't actually expecting this as i'd not heard any announcements... But this is actually pretty interesting.

I had a feeling that things would turn a little serious, because I couldn't help but think either the main girl or her best friend would die, later on. I just had that vibe from them. I didn't expect it to go in this direction, of course. But now that a tone has been set, I'm worried as hell for that cat, more than anyone else.

the hype. she is real.

Glad to see it jump off to an intriguing start. Half-way through felt slow, then the action ramped up with a Mutiny. nice
