Girls are ships. Time to ship ships.
Sexual innuendo aside, this episode was really promising. Mysterious enemies. Political maneuvering. Isolated nation states. Submarines and WWII battleships. Cool action scenes.
It looks really nice too. Kind of reminds me of Noein in this regard, but with modern graphics capabilities. Story-wise, it feels a bit like Eureka Seven, in that a group of “outlaws” travel the world together. I’m curious to see how the captain became a “traitor” to humanity.
I’ve heard other people comparing this show to Moretsu Pirates, but no, this is nothing like Moretsu Pirates aside from the fact that there is a ship. At least I hope that’s the only thing they have in common. This show actually has things going on, not just girls sitting around drinking tea. I’m assuming the show will proceed by spending the first half engaging in some minor battles while introducing the rest of the crew, leading up to some final battle likely involving a reconcilating with the other ships at the end. Maybe the captain will become an admiral and come aboard all the ships.
