Yet another anime I remember watching during my Toonami days. I remember not liking it very much when I was younger, due to the dark plot. But I've recently rewatched it again (years later) and I must say, this was a kickass anime.

I was rewarded with a great plot, jazzy music, excellent animation, and a good moral lesson.

The story itself had a pretty interesting and original twist on the End of the World genre of movies. With the theme's of man vs nature and such (it does this much better then The Happening, but that isn't very hard to do).
I only wish that they'd read more

Title: Blue Submarine No. 6

Manga, Live-Action Movie, Anime: Blue Submarine No. 6 was originally a manga created by Satoru Ozawa. It ran in Shonen Sunday, and stands at three collected volumes. It has yet to be licensed Stateside.

In 2005, a live-action movie was announced by Gonzo studios, with Masahiro Ohkura directing. There's no more info about the movie after this, so your guess is as good as mine as to whether or not it's actually still happening.

Blue Submarine No. 6 is a four episode OVA that was produced by Gonzo (famous for their work on Gankutsuou and Bokurano) and directed by Mahiro read more

I dont generally do reviews but nows as good of a time as any to start, that being said this is my first review and you may find it a little odd in comparison to most however i'll just keep doing them in my own 'brainless' way.

Story: The story, which i'm not going to any detail about, is border-line amazing though it doesn't seem very "whole". I say amazing because I've never really seen anything quite like it, that is to say it is quite unique and quite creative. However it does seem to have a lot of holes, much seems to go unexplained. Because read more

What is it I love about Blue Submarine 6...
Well, I remember, vaguely, watching it in instalments, back during those beautiful 6 months when I was 6 and we had free Cable, on Toonami. At yes, along side those hours watching Gundamn Wing and Chris Colorado, there was this odd little show about a Blue Submarine and some odd Animal men.
Back then, I wasn't so crazy on it, but that was mostly because I could never work out what order the episodes went in. I had this vague idea I might be watching them out of sync, or perhaps that I missed one.
Now of course, its read more

Recommendations

Both are produced by Gonzo and have the character design of Range Murata.
Deep, beautiful, mature, and futuristic series of the adventure, action, and sci-fi genre.
Both anime have a specific setting (air in Last Exile, water in Blue Submarine # 6).
Also, in both the main girl is a redhead.
Both plots revolve around an invincible submarine, and its crew. Similar length, and main characters
If you thought Blue Submarine was cool for it's use of jazz music during action sequences, you'll enjoy Bebop's fight and flight scenes. However, I cannot recommend Blue Sub to fans of Bebop, because Bebop's soundtrack is far superior and overall Blue Sub will disappoint in this department.
Both take place on a world submerged underwater with people fighting for supremacy with an alien race. They have many similar ethics and main characters.
There are similar character behaviors and personalities along with a similar depressive, serious atmosphere overall. Additionally, the sci-fi-ish, science gone wrong backdrop is present. Besides the general plot being different: Strait Jacket is far more gory and Ao no 6-gou has a greater color scheme.
The same plot where mankind's existence lay on the hand of submariners who are up against weird looking enemies, however one is limited to a 4 ep OVA, while the other one is a full TV anime.
