Naval science fiction film exclusive to SM Cinemas

The Philippine Daily Inquirer revealed that the Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova DC anime film will open in the Philippines on Wednesday exclusive to SM Cinemas.

The film debuted in Japan on January 15. The movie also opened in Singapore last month.

Seiji Kishi directed at SANZIGEN Animation Studio, and Makoto Uezu oversaw the scripts. Masato Kōda composed the music. The voice actress group Trident performed the opening theme "Blue Snow," and nano. performed the ending theme "Rock on."

In Ark Performance's original science-fiction naval manga, humanity lost much of its developed land due to global warming in the first half of the 21st century. Then, a "Fleet of Fog" loaded with super weapons suddenly appears all over the world. Without the ability to withstand this fleet, humanity was defeated and could no longer travel the seas. 17 years after the devastating naval war, Gunzō Chihaya and his crewmates somehow commandeer a "Fleet of Fog" submarine named I-401. Together with Iona (I-401's "mental model" or incarnation in humanoid form), they take on the "Fleet of Fog."

The television anime re-aired last year with 12 new "Kiri-Kumas" (literally, "Fog-Bears") shorts by same main staff who worked on both the television anime and the movies.

The second Arpeggio of Blue Steel film, Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova Cadenza will open in Japan on October 3.
