otakunicks retro reviews (blue sub 6)

okay i know i ushaly leve the retro reviews to anime that predate 2000 but i think hell its been out for 10 years its old anuph for a retro review so il be reviewing blue sub 6

 Blue Submarine No. 6 is a 4ep OVA that ran in October of 2000 with a over all length of 32 minuets a ep and was directed by Maeda, Mahiro who also directed the The Animatrix tho hes probably best know for his mecha design Top wo Nerae! and Escaflowne

the story is strait forwerd and not all that great The once famous and well respected scientist Zorndyke has bred a new genre of living being, one that thrives on the oceans and lives to destroy humans. Zorndyke believes it is time that the humans were relieved of their rule of the earth. It is up to Blue Submarine No. 6 and the rest of the Blue fleet to put an end to Zorndyke's madness and creations. but the charter interactions and motivations make up for the story's week points

now this OVA did sum thing others of it time failed to do and that the integration of CGI with computer cell animation meaning the carter are and sum backgrounds would be drawn using a program like PS or illustrator and a majority of the action scenes would be full CGI and tho it looks sum what dated now back in 2000 this was the best use of CGI i can think off it was crisp clean and detailed  and had almost no animation problems the charters where properly proportioned and had vary naturel movements

the music was rely nice as well mixing jaz with and rock witch to vary distinctive never gets to overpowering and at the same time comes to for front when needed  and to this day its a OST i listion to

over all i can say is this is a must watch for any anime fan good art good charters ok story and great music
