Aoki Hagane No Arpeggio was an excellent anime, although it may not be the best of its kind, I must say it has elements that make it quite remarkable from the rest of other animes of its kind.
The story is not the most original, but is well developed, the characters make an incredible harmony and have a good development with the plot, which helps a lot and results in a quite entertaining production.
The shortcomings of this anime are the typical ones that can be found in most of the series, as happens with excessive fanservice (unnecessary and somewhat stupid in my opinion), however it is not an element that is too annoying.
In addition to its plot, I should also highlight the incredible animation and music, although not the best, definitely this anime is worth.

Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio places us in the year 2039, in a land ravaged by war and rising sea level. Humanity is on the verge of collapse, blocked by a mysterious stalker blocking all human communication lines. The so-called fog, its technology and weapon power is huge and has forced the human race to remain incommunicado from other territories.
The anime consists of 12 intense chapters where tells us the adventures of the I-401 and its crew, composed of 6 young renegades of the Japanese government. During the last two years they have wandered the ocean sinking ships of the fog without anyone being explained very well as.
When the Japanese government instructs Gonzou and his crew to carry out a new prototype weaponry to the United States, the fog fleet in the Pacific takes steps to stop them. Will they get to San Diego and deliver the prototype that could save humanity?

The Japanese government carries out different tasks for this independent crew, although it will obviously also try to capture them during their wanderings. After all, what can a few little kids do against the most powerful enemy of humanity?
When the Japanese government orders Gonzou and his crew to carry out a new weapon prototype to the United States, the fog fleet in the Pacific is taking steps to stop them. Will they get to San Diego and deliver the prototype that could save humanity?
In conclusion to me the series I liked it enough. While it is true that there is a moment that gives more importance to a secondary sub-metratama a little less serious, the series gives you what promises past that pair of chapters, boats that shoot at the same time, strategic battles, but also girls and sentimentalist plots.

This anime Taking place in the future of 2056, technology has far advanced than our modern world. Just imagine in over 40 years what our world would be like. For the characters in this series, they’re not living at home relaxing but are on the war zone to carry out an important mission. That mission is no walk in the park because of the obstacles ahead. Taken from an objective standards, the obstacles comes into two forms. The most obvious involves the ‘Fleet of Fog’, fictional avatars named after non-fictional battleships. The other obstacle involves also dealing with humans and corrupt governments that wants to achieve various goals with their own deeds. It’s a bloody revolution and no one wants to play nice.
For me, the series has its ups and downs. To call it a scientific masterpiece would be over exaggerating but it’s also not a waste of time to watch either. Because of its premise, this show itself does set itself differently with its cast of characters and brings the military science fiction theme in a different light.

Aoki Hagane on Arpeggio: Ars Nova is a series of Action genre, Sci-Fi, Seinen. This anime is about 20 to 30 years into the future where the oceans and seas are impassable because of the ghost fleet that are terrorizing it which consist of pretty girls that controls there each is her own ship that are in a fleet that have access to unparallelled Technology which consist of very gigantic guns, array of missiles, powerful laser turrets. And one of the previous captains are got on hold a very powerful sub which originated from the ghost fleet.
The art is fantastic for under / above water naval battles, it sometimes in cg, specially the battleships and u-boats
Your MC is your typical hero, where the conflict arises I answered the call. But what makes it interesting is your girlships different types of ships / subs tsundereship loliship / sub emoship moeship / sub, orientalship, germanship, europeanship, bossship, cosplayership, maidship, sistership, twinship, cloneship, ghostship, sunkenship, Which have each own female avatar. You got a fleet of girls .. ehem ship.
I enjoyed this anime honestly because of the different personality of each ship on how they discover their self. It is you to find out
I picked up this anime first because I planned watching all anime this fall 2013. Im kinda surprised at first because the enemies are pretty ladies with different cloths different styles and different personalities. There are also unanswered questions on each individual characters also. It also got me interested what if the mc captured all of the enemy ships, I would have a harem party of pretty lady ships.

t was ok. I found it by chance and ended up sticking with the script, since although there is a plot, the script has its own motivations and ends up developing issues a little deeper than our eyes can see.

The narrative rhythm of the same is not heavy, is allowed to carry in agile way, enough so that we understand what is happening and recognize each character that parades through the chapters. Characters whose first impression may be that of a unidimensional and unattractive character but that, over time, one can notice a very marked evolution (by the way, they emphasize it a lot in the last episodes) when it comes to personality And ambitions. A very dynamic quality in the handling of C.G.I (including, there are sequences in which neither is noticed) and sequences of action well polished.

One another dye fanservice scene, of course, but unlike many works, that does not get to cloud the whole series. That yes, happy endings are not my favorites, but hey, I make an exception with this one :3

Arpeggio was good, although I must admit that it did not draw my attention from the beginning.
The series although not very original made good use of certain elements that made it very acceptable. The characters are charismatic, enough to draw attention and make the story interesting. The atmosphere in CGI seemed spectacular, very well worked. The story was good, as I said, but could be better, the strategies put forward, the battles were good, but it lacked more depth, the anime focused so much on girls' lives adding elements of Moe and fanservice that were quite unnecessary.
Even with these elements, I must say that the anime I liked a lot, especially in the last chapters. Finally I can say the serie has good but it's not exceptional, it makes good use of the military genre, but has many negative elements that degenerate its quality.
