Synopsis

Humanity finds itself in a struggle when the sea level begins to rise to an unprecedented level in the year 2039. To make matters worse, powerful enemies resembling old wartime vessels called the Fleet of Fog roam the waters, severing communication and transit to various regions.

Any attempt at retaliation ends in failure with humanity's current weaponry. Only Gunzou Chihaya stands a chance against the Fleet of Fog as captain of the friendly Fog I-401 submarine Iona. As a result, Gunzou and his crew, known as Blue Steel, are tasked with a critical delivery mission by the Japanese government: they must deliver humanity's last hope against the Fleet of Fog, the Vibration Torpedo Warhead, through hostile waters to the United States for mass production.

Though involved in the unsavory conflict, Blue Steel strives for nothing more than a peaceful resolution to it. As Iona undertakes the current mission and tasks beyond it, the crew upholds their values even in the face of harsh situations.

Firstly, if you are new to the Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio series, I recommend that you watch "Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova" prior to watching this movie. It is not required viewing material in order to enjoy this movie, but it definitely helps with viewer comprehension and world building, which this movie is seriously lacking.

Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova DC is a summary of the ARS Nova animated television series. The reason I recommend watching the series first is because, as a stand-alone movie, the story is under-developed. Many of the interactions, why ...

I found out there was an other movie that takes place after the series.
so i decided to watch this recap.

This movie isn`t for anyone who hasn`t seen the serie, it won`t make any sense.
Watch it as an recap, if you decide to watch the new film , "Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova Cadenza"

The good thing about this movie is that is has an extra 45 min at the end.

This movie is for those who have watched the series, and need to refresh their memories.

Spoiler
I will make this as simple as possible, assuming you are watching this anime after long time it was released:

- If you enjoyed the series (12 episodes) good amount, you can easily skip the first 60 - 70 min of this movie.
- If you didn´t enjoy much or at all; or if you plan to watch the movies without watching the series (12 episodes): don´t need to even bother watching the movie.

-------------------

The first 60-70 min is basically the recap of the series, but rushed as hell as expected.

The new content is about 30-40 minutes long. Even so, just about 5 min of it actually ...
