Grotesque, strong enemies called "Siren" have suddenly appeared from the sea. In order to fight against them, a navy group called Azure Lane has formed. They were successful in stopping the attack from Siren for a moment using warships. The different ideals from the people who formed it have shown. The story is about girls fighting the strong enemies that they've never faced before while dealing with the trouble in each camp.

Ah, yes, nice to see my Twitter feed finally getting an anime adaptation.

Yes, just yes. Whatever this show is on I need at least 10 times the lethal dosage injected directly into my capillaries. There’s no pretense with Azu-Lane, absolutely none at all, and it’s hard to not love for that reason alone. For the uninitiated, Azur Lane is the gacha equivalent of crack cocaine, essentially making up half of China’s GDP. An eventual adaptation of this popular gacha game seemed imminent from the moment it was released, it was only a matter of time. For all intents, Azu-Lane’s model is admittedly exploitative and read more

Alright, I'll get straight to the point: when you think about this Anime as the story/background/plot (whatever) of the videogame it's not terrible, but when you think about it as a show and a show only you'll see this is as mediocre as it gets.

My review will contain strong language, and I declare already that I do not intend to offend anyone by what I'll say, it's just my opinion and me using simple language and vocabulary to express my feelings towards this anime.

Ok! Let's start from the beginning, I played azur lane a while ago maybe a year and a half or read more

I'm gonna be honest, I honestly didn't expect this adaptation to do the game any justice. But to my surprise I found this quite a bit more enjoyable than the game.

Story 8/10:
The story is basically the same as it is in the game, an alien group called the Siren appear in the sea out of nowhere so to combat this new threat the navy fanservice the shit out of military grade ships in order to make a new fetish (and maybe save the ocean while there at it.) Along the way the four groups who developed these sea waifus separate into two factions, Ironblood and read more

Azur Lane is weird, not because of what Azur Lane is about (heck, you couldn’t be more anime if you tried), but for what it is. An adaptation of a popular mobile game that has good production values. Normally, stuff like this are usually cash grabs to capitalize on how popular the mobile game is. But it felt like Bibury Animation studios wanted to create a fun spectacle. So far at least, that has been the case. There is a sense of enjoyment in this show with cute but badass girls using Battleships as weapons fighting each other while skimming across the sea in what read more
