Arpeggio of Blue Steel Review

So, while trolling through Netflix, I came across this anime that I had passed up the first time, and was kinda intrigued about. I put it on the back burner, but it kept up popping up as recommended. Finally I did some looking, and the best review I saw for it was, "What Kantai Collection wishes it could be." Huh. Tossing it in, I discovered a very nice sci fi story and some decent Nautical knowhow, which is kinda topical considering what I used to do for a living. Overall, I found it decent, but check out my review, and see if you might not be convinced to give it a go as well.

Arpeggio of Blue Steel (TV, 2013)

Overview

It is the year 2005, and the treacherous Decepticons have conquered...no wait, wrong story. Let me back up a sec. It's actually the year 2039, and global warming agitprop has caused the sea levels to rise exponentially causing a massive loss of Earth's land mass. During this time fleets of sentient warships, dubbed 'The Fog' with technology light years ahead of our appear on the high sees with this directive: There will be no transit, commerce, communication, or any other interaction between land masses via the oceans or the sky. Humanity is now cut off from each other. Humanity fought bravely, defiantly, but otherwise, futilely as no weapon we had, no strategy we could come up with, and no protection we could put up could stop them. And after the final stand of the world Navies, humanity retreated to its land locked positions and futilely plotting how it could retake its world. Its only hope laying in a deserter from The Fog, Iona, and her captain, Gunz┼Ź Chihaya, with their crew of Blue Steel, the only ship currently capable of fighting back against these invaders. Though in this transformed world, all is not as it seems; far more than meets the eye when it's found 'The Fog' is evolving as well; though not in a direction much of anyone expected.
