If you’re still at lost at what Arpeggio of Blue Steel is all about, we’re giving you a bit of its plot:
Because of the global warming and the rising sea levels of the early 21st century, humanity has lost a lot of the earth’s land mass. At the same time was the appearance of the “Fleet of Fog,” a fleet of powerful sentient ships of unknown origin. It is armed with advanced technology and weapons, easily vanquishing the world’s naval forces. The fleet imposes a worldwide naval and aerial blockade; preventing any one from travelling across the seas.
Seventeen years after the blockade, Gunzo Chuhaya appears as the captain of the Blue Steel fleet; the only crew which possesses the only Fog submarine which defected to human side. This is I-401, and also comes by the name of Iona. A girl.
