Haifuri on MAL


Update August 26
Comic Alive magazine revealed the main character and the setting of the show in its October issue. The name of the main character is Akeno Misaki, nicknamed Mike-chan. She is described as a cheerful and optimistic person, with "Any friend of the sea is family to me!" as one of her phrases. The issue also announced that the anime will receive a manga adaptation, which will also be serialized in Comic Alive. More information about the anime will be announced in the next issue.

Synopsis
With Japan having developed as a maritime nation, it became necessary to have specialized schools to teach skills essential to protecting the sea. The setting is one such all-girls school. The girls who enroll here study to become "bloomer maids," through classroom instruction and teaching of practical skills.

"Bloomer maids" are women who pursue the ocean for their professional occupation. They live by the motto "In the sea we live, the sea we protect, and by the sea we go." They must excel in their studies, but must also adopt an international mindset. They are the "Elite of the Sea," and are expected to be knowledgeable of the customs and cultures of other countries as well as their own. (Source: ANN)

wow aniplex hate is pretty funny

oh well this is mal after all....cant wait for this anime to come out i hope we get a good studio


Hope you like A-1 Pictures cause that's where it's probably going. I see nothing wrong with a little pattern recognition and opinion. People can call it hating or whatever, I really couldn't care much less. I mean fuck you have people saying it's going to be some kind of triumph cause Aniplex is staff baiting again with some person they like whose involvement is about as up in the air as your average staff bait with Urobuchi (the only thing that is stated for certain is they are doing character design but people don't read which to me is the more hateful than anything) and then you have some people asking how often that really works out and what it has to do with the price of bananas for what looks like an original anime. The only thing you can probably be certain of really is this will probably involve Sora Amamiya in some capacity and you'll see if the staff baiting takes on further forms with the rest of them. In my head I'm jokingly thinking something like Tsutomu Mizushima as director (Shirobako), Jukki Hanada or Reiko Yoshida on script, Yoshiyaki Fujiwara on music (Love Live, Yuri Yuri) and the NBA person doing the character design for maximum staff baiting. That'll probably tell the level of promotion you can expect out of this


My god, they should take it easy on Amamiya, she's overrated as a VA and probably tired, slow it down a bit so she can grow in talent at a proper pace or she'll burn out. Trying to make her as popular as Kana Hanazawa or Yui Ogura right now will lead to disappointment especially since others with fewer roles seem to outdo her in voice acting and even singing.

Ah, so this is related to the sea in somewhat ways.

I'm still somewhat interested in this as long as it maintains a nice balanced slice of life and atmospheric setting.

Wouldn't sea diplomats fit better than bloomer maids which sounds like something that belongs in Senran Kagura.
