Anchors aweigh! A new key visual (above) has been published for High School Fleet: The Movie, an upcoming theatrical anime film that continues the nautical adventures of the Blue Mermaids from the 2016 original TV anime, High School Fleet. The new visual depicts the main characters studying hard in a traditional Japanese-style classroom while their ships, which are docked outside, are visible through the classroom windows.
High School Fleet: The Movie is directed by Yuu Nobuta and Jun Nakagawa and features animation production by A-1 Pictures. The film hits theaters in Japan in the early Spring season of 2020.
Crunchyroll currently streams the 2016 High School Fleet TV anime, and describes the story of the series as follows:
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 had become every female student’s dream job.
