hmmmm ... was not familiar with this title ... at first I thought it was a renamed "Silent Service" - but that is another submarine anime all together.

From what I gather in the reviews, it look pretty good with the exception of being to short (2 45 minute OVAs) stuck together for the "movie" title.

hmmmm ... think I will give this one a try ...

Isn't this the show that has a very strong anti-american theme running through it or am I mixing it up with a different anime/manga?

Well the reviews did imply the trappings of "Imperial America" ... with the attendant stereotype of the brash arrogant "invincible" American Navy ...

... but given the fact that the show was created during the tail end of the "Cold War Trinity" then this outlook is somewhat understandable ... but of course as always, in this scenario ... we go in whistling and get our butts royally handed to us ... hahahaha ... from what I understand there is alot of symbolism and veiled political commentary in this show ... in this regard it reminds me of "Silent Service".
