Prepare to sortie!
Long ago, beings from another world forced humanity out of the seas. Unable to combat the threat at hand, four nations banded together. Under the banner of Azur Lane, they achieved great feats. Among them were the creation of fleet girls and defeating the Sirens. Sadly, the peace they enjoyed was never meant to last. While the Eagle Union and Royal Navy remained strong allies, the same could not be said for The Sakura Empire and Iron Bloods. Their isolation drew eyes, though little could done. Unfortunately, these two nations have been quite busy. A new alliance has been created known as the Crimson Axis, and they’ve come to start a new war. Believing only the strong should control the future, a declaration was announced. However, a simple war is the least of Azur Lane’s problems. The Crimson Axis have combined their might with Siren technology. Today’s attack was merely a test, although just what were they testing?
Episode 1 was an introduction with a whole lot of action. We’ve met several characters, though a lot were just in the background. In fact, we’re probably not going to meet most of the cast. The source material has over 300 fleet girls and counting. So, only the most popular girls are going to shine in the anime. A few names you’ll come to recognize are Javelin, Laffey, Ayanami, Unicorn, Enterprise, Cleveland, Akagi, and Kaga. However, I’m sure there’s plenty more to come. Azur Lane is massive, after all. Moreover, I wouldn’t pay too much attention to the plot. The main allure of Azur lane is the girls, and this anime is doing a fine job at that. As you’ll see below, this anime is filled with fan service. If you’re a fan of the game, then you already know. It’s always been about the waifus. Anyhow, here’s hoping no ones shipfu sinks. Enjoy the test!
This was only just a taste. We’ve got plenty more beauties to cover next week!
