^The OP already has a music video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2uqpqrYmMY the rips I posted came from some radio show.
I see. So indeed OP gets heavier promotion and no exception here after all LOL

No wonder the OP gave me a vibe of the Btooom! OP. Same artist!

By the way, the group singing the ED, Trident, is actually composed of the 3 seiyuu voicing the 3 main characters in the anime...

It's interesting to note that all are based on World War 2 Japanese cruisers, even I401 is actually an I-400 class. But like with all of the ships, heavuily Sci-Fied up. Now I want Dakimakura of Takao. And please let there be actual battleship, Yamato or Nagato would' t hurt.

Seems similar thing can always be said for every season so far - and at the end it depends on how much you let aversion to so-called "moe and crap formula" to obscure the existence of the variety of other shows which are always around as well.

Kinda sad that this thread gets very few recognitions compared to some announcement threads of generic LN adaptations out there (which was pretty much a given since the manga itself is barely known in western fandom and gets little monthly views on scanlation site), considering that this series has compelling sci-fi premise, fascinating tactical naval battles, gorgeous battleship designs, and probably one of few anime that uses full CG (Aside of sunrise' mecha anime). And a such, this show is definitely not going to be boring. And it's been a long time since i last watched anime with hard sci-fi premise (I'm looking at you, BONES and Sunrise), that's why this show is a must watch for me.

Angel Beats director? Does this mean that this will end up "unfinished" with lots of plotholes?
Don't forget Angel Beats is an original while this one is adapted from a manga. I am not sure what you mean by "plothole" because plothole, properly used, means contradictions in a story which I don't think Angel Beats has "lots". But if you mean unexplained things, well for this anime it depends a lot on how much is explained in the manga, don't you think?

Instant watch because of the girls and the ship battles :D

This has the potential for military fans as the next Girls und Panzer
