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 Harekaze's valiant crew as they navigate treacherous waters and other obstacles on their quest to become fully fledged Blue Mermaids.

This is a good anime. If you like anime with an ocean atmosphere like listening to the waves, seagulls, storms and the scenery. And also ship knowledge such as its operation and giving the captain's orders to the crew. I think you should watch this.
This anime is approximately 85% of the scene in this season is in the middle of the sea. Not only the sea and shipping, but also the daily lives of girls who struggle to survive because they are considered school rebels because there is an unknown cause of chaos that is happening in this story. Don't forget their cuteness is a ...

Mixed Feelings
I watched High School Fleet, also known as Haifuri. I watched the TV anime, OVAs, and the movie. Here are my thoughts:

This is basically the maritime clone of Girls und Panzer, which I didn't enjoy enough to watch more than the first season of. It's been years since then, but I think one of the main reasons I dropped GuP was because of the crappy characters. I remember also thinking that the battles were very drawn-out and often boring. Anyway, enough about GuP — I only bring it up because the comparison is so common.

High School Fleet involves battleships which are operated by crews of ...

If you want to watch little girls doing stuff on WWII era ships and that's about it then this is the show for you. If you care about story or character development then stay away. I watched this when it came out so I'm going off memory and it didn't leave me with any good ones.

Overall: I gave it a 4, mainly because of a really bad plot and poor character development. This could have been a lot better if they went to another genre or cut down on the number of characters they used so they could develop them better.

Story: I said it was ...
