Set in a world where humanity has lost control of the oceans to the “deep sea fleet,” the only hope to counter this threat are the Kanmusu, a group of girls who possess the spirit of Japanese warships. The story revolves around Fubuki, a destroyer who comes to the Chinjufu base to train with other Kanmusu. Watch as their stories unfold!
So, we begin this season with the sense of "FINALLY! We get a new season with new shipgirls, as Shigure is now the main character. Can't wait to see it!".By the final episode it was like, "New season...yay...whoo..." as it is nothing like Season One.Season Two is unfortunately like the film, i.e., a much more serious undertone. It also takes place in an alternate universe 1944, so most of the shipgirls that made Season One a hit are not present at all (Ooi, CuteDiv 6 (save for Hibiki, briefly), Nagato and Mutsu, Akagi the Great Eater, the Kongo sisters (though Kongo does make a cameo in one episode and is mentioned in another)). We do, however, get to see numerous shipgirls make their anime debuts; Fuso, Yamashiro, Ise, Hyuga, Ryuho, Sakawa, Fuyuzuki, Suzutsuki...the list is considerable.But the lightheartedness of Season One, despite a few brief glimpses (thanks to Yukikaze being adorable), is not there at all, which for me was a MAJOR detraction. I absolutely loved the 'World War II warships getting used to being human and being in the 21st century' deal that Season One had, and had hoped Season Two would continue that at least somewhat after being let down by the movie. Sadly, this was not to be.So if you're looking for a lighthearted slice-of-life anime interspersed with action, watch Season One. Watch this at least once to see all the new shipgirls, but it's not one for repeat watching.
