  • Not A Critical Review
    The short and to the point version: An interesting water world take with a war between humans and an other race with appeal for (well i am not sure who would be an ideal audience for this one.).

    I found it to be thoroughly enjoyable and believe most people would like it but i am not really sure how to recommend the anime.

    Generic nonsense with poor production quality
    While I was initially intrigued with the idea of a story which could be told in four episodes, the actual production wound up being the worst. The characters are two-dimensional and the CG is messy. The main character is unrelatable, and while he is retrieved for his great skill at something, it is never once communicated what actual task was in mind for him, leaving him to run around with nothing ...

  • 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 ...

    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.

    A Lack of Nostalgia Goggles For Me: Blue Sub 6
    I will start with a simple story. In 2000 Toonami announced that for one week Blue Submarine No. 6 would be taking over a slot in its afternoon Toonami black. At the time I was a fourteen or fifteen year old kid who was really starting to get into Anime. What annoyed me about the show, and caused me to skip the series as a whole was the fact that it was removing my Anime Drug of choice at the ...

    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 ...

    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 ...
