Operation FS (plot summary until episode nine)

Current Operation (plot summary episode ten on)

  • Due to a remodelling, the fleets are reorganized; however, the Abyssal Fleet strikes back
  • In search of the Abyssal operational base AF, fleets are sent on reconnaissance
  • One goal is dealt with first with Operations MI & AL
    • Goals: Recover the Teitoku & neutralize the Naval District attack fleet
      • Contains numerous references to actual Pacific War events & battles


  • Only on sea scenes
    • Even then, certain shots are traditionally animated
      • Leads to frequent switching


  • The title & its reading
  • Kanmusu-related titles read by their seiyuu

All kanmusu & Abyssals are redesigned for the anime

Kanmusu quotes are frequently employed

  • Possibility even when they do not quite fit

Time progression

  • Timeskipping is evident, preventing derivations from day/night cycles & the script
  • Travel times are skipped given the planning maps shown throughout the series
  • Docking time, other than showing a few timers, is skipped
  • Operation dates & times are not provided other than in a relative fashion

The series is split in half

  • Odd episodes are serious
  • Even episodes are usually character-focused

As is the usual practice, physics is bent as necessary for viewer expectations, dramatic effect, & so forth.

A Naval Base is within a Naval District. For example, the Kure Naval District's layout was:

  • Naval Base
    • Naval Guard Unit
    • Naval Arsenal
    • Naval Hospital
    • Naval Prison
    • Naval Fuel Depot
    • Special Naval Landing Forces
  • Submarine Base
  • Naval Infantry Barracks
