In a seemingly peaceful time without looming threats of Sirens or war, shipgirls from different nations live together in harmony. Some girls, such as the destroyers Ayanami, Javelin, Laffey, and Z23, attend school. Others immerse themselves into various other activities, including sports, foraging, training, going to formal parties, or even vying for the commander's attention! But one thing is for certain: the girls will continue to deepen their friendship in the pleasant port of Azur Lane!

"Fine, I'll do it myself." — Yostar, probably.

The first adaptation of Azur Lane was a disaster. Poor pacing, inconsistent animation quality, bad writing reducing a major faction (Ironblood) to a minor role...gacha adaptations aren't known for their quality, but that didn't stop Azur Lane from sinking in the Sea of Disappoinments. So, what does Bisoku Zenshin do to avoid the same fate?

Fluff. Loads upon loads of fluff.

Where the first adaptation struggled to find a balance between action and comedy, Bisoku Zenshin doubles down on lightheartedness. Each episode follows Starter Squad on their adventures around home port, encountering other shipgirls along the way while partaking in read more

What's better than waifu ships fighting? You’re right, just watching our cute little girls have a lot of fun in their everyday life.
When the previous main part of Azur Lane came out in late 2019, the hype was really big. After all, Azur Lane is a very successful mobile game, I mean who doesn't want to collect all the different waifus. But the disillusionment came quickly. From the entire animation to a break of several months in between, this anime has suffered a lot of criticism. With "Bisoku Zenshin!" the studio "CANDY BOX" is trying to do everything better and they certainly succeeded in their read more

Long story short, Bisoku Zenshin is the real Azur Lane adaptation.
Let's be honest here: it's a gacha game where you gather shipfus and is known for having a lot of fanservice. There is some story, but it's more like something interesting (or not) on side for most players. Slow Ahead manga, and now anime, focus on those "important" parts, which is SoL, comedy and fanservice.

Natural consequence of being a fanservice (in broader meaning, not just sexual) for players of already fanservice focused game, on top of being a short adaptation of 4-koma manga, is that it doesn't explain anything about the world or characters. This read more

Man, why can’t Azur Lane just be this?

I won’t beat around the bush here. This short form series is very much a cute girls doing cute things show with some ecchi fanservice. But what makes Slow Ahead! so enjoyable compared to its counterpart is that it consists solely of the franchise’s strengths. You won’t find any drama or action here getting in your way. It’s consistently lighthearted in nature and effectively showcases the very thing that is so appealing about Azur Lane in the first place: its cute girls.

The series boasts itself an ensemble of likable well designed characters which is obviously the biggest draw. read more
