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.
Submarines and sci-fi don't often come together, but when they do (as in Disney's '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea' classic movie, or TV series like 'SeaQuest' or 'Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea') it is usually a good mix of story and action. In this, 'Blue Submarine No. 6' delivered in top form.
I don't want to give up too much here, but this story takes place in a not too distant future where a scientist has made havoc with modern civilization through the creatures he has made (shades of H. G. Wells' 'Island of Doctor Moureau'). The 'Blue Fleet', a ragtag group of hi-tech submarines and their commanders, is constantly on guard for the next attack on coastal cities and ports. Later, they go for an all out mission to stop the evil scientist before the planet's environmental balance is destroyed.
The animation is a mix of hand drawn and computer graphics that works rather well. The music soundtrack amps up key action scenes, and the story is both very entertaining and thought provoking. I have only seen the edited Toonami Movie version (115 minutes, English dubbed), but from the first viewing I was hooked on this excellent Anime film! Anyone who likes Anime, sci-fi story lines, and especially cool submarines should definitely check out 'Blue Submarine No. 6'.
