A hundred years after catastrophic shifts in tectonic plates caused most of its area to submerge, Japan now thrives as a maritime nation. High functioning cities line the coasts of Japan, and well developed sea routes are defended by specialized naval ships. The marine industry is flourishing, and young girls are eager to join the Blue Mermaids—highly skilled women who devote their lives to protecting the seas.

After some time apart, childhood friends Akeno Misaki and Moeka China are reunited at Yokosuka Girls' Marine High School. Here they are joined by others who share their dream of becoming Blue Mermaids. Soon, training exercises commence, with Akeno and Moeka being put in charge of their own ships and crew. Everything is progressing smoothly for Akeno as she settles into her role as captain and builds camaraderie between her fellow crew members aboard the Harekaze, a destroyer ship. However, unexpected engine and navigation failures soon leave their ship stranded and the crew in danger.

High School Fleet follows the Harakaze's valiant crew as they navigate treacherous waters and other obstacles on their quest to become fully fledged Blue Mermaids.

Haifuri, one of the WORST promoted anime of all time. Okay that might be exaggerating, but not a lot of promotion is of this anime I have to say this season and to be absolutely frank (not Dave, we don’t talk about Dave), it was infuriating. Why? Because it’s completely the opposite to what people think it is and it was in my opinion absolutely fantastic.
Okay, short rant over, let’s get down to it since I’ve been itching to write a review but I wanted to finish the anime first and now that’s happened let’s get going with the review.

You know, if there’s one title from the top of my head with a misleading promo poster, then High Fleet Girls would be the first title this year to be named. Initially, the series was promoted under the title ‘Hai-furi’ before the revelation that it’s more than just about “cute girls doing cute things”. Much, much more.

Before starting the show, I think it’s also important to understand the background and setting of the story. It takes place in an alternate modern world although events from 100 years ago (shift in tectonic plates) has changed much of Japan. The country attempts to preserve territories and establish read more

All hands on deck!!!

High School Fleet or Haifuri (which will be what LA will be calling it from now on) is another "girls doing cute things" this Spring 2016 however it's not focusing on misfortune, bread or motorbikes, but naval warfare a la Girls und Panzer.

In terms of characters, considering the huge cast, you'd think that the development to these girls are minimal at best and sure that is true as the majority of the characters gets something of a "running gag trait" however considering the screentime and teamwork needed in naval warfare, their screentime is plentiful. The majority of the character focus goes to read more

HaiFuri of High School Fleet is an anime that happens in a near future where the ocean rise and flooded the coastal cities... In Japan the flooded make that they must build cities above the water and create the "Blue Mermaids" a kind of coastguard patrol the seas.

The story =>
Above the premise of the Blue Mermaids we have a group of young girls who want to became Blue Mermaids to protect the sea. Our main character is Akeno Misaki, the captain of the Harekaze (An invented Kagero-class destroyer) the first episode is practically the introduction to the Harekaze, Musashi, the crew of the Harekaze...
