Synopsis

In the year 2039, the drastic effects of global warming have caused sea levels to rise, resulting in major loss of land. To ensure humanity learns its lesson, a fleet of powerful warships equipped with advanced weaponry emerges, causing overwhelming defeat for naval forces throughout the world. Calling themselves the Fleet of Fog, each ship has a "Mental Model," a humanoid avatar which represents the ship's heart, its "Union Core." Each model has a different personality but all follow an unknown authority known as the Admiralty Code, who have implemented a blockade to prevent humans from traveling across the sea.

Seventeen years after the blockade, Gunzou Chihaya, a National Marine Academy alumnus, stumbles upon I-401 and its Mental Model, Iona, who sides with mankind for unknown reasons. Utilizing this newfound hope of achieving peace for humanity, Gunzou and his friends form a group of privateers, known as the Blue Steel, as they set out on a dangerous journey.

Introduction:
An engrossing anime called Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova skillfully combines science fiction and naval combat. This series has a fascinating idea that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats from beginning to end.

Mixed Feelings
Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova
Arpeggio: the sounding of the notes of a chord in rapid succession instead of simultaneously.
Ars Nova: refers to a musical style which flourished in France and the Burgundian Low Countries in the late Middle Ages

First let me disclaim that I haven't consumed any of the other media around Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova (if there is any), this review is solely aimed at the anime itself. Overall I'd say this anime is above average overall, but isn't really special in any department. The show is visually average, I'd never describe it as gorgeous but for a show heavily ...

Arpeggio is one of those shows which will forever be remembered as “that bad CGI anime with the battleships turning to girls”. Well, there obviously are far more things going on in it but who cares; you will remember it just for that, since it is ensnared in the middle of the uncanny valley effect. This is what it boils down to; and in case it went over your head the first time, allow me to repeat it once again: A show with bad CGI and battleships that are in fact cute girls. We live in the post Avatar era, fed up with schools and ...
