Azur Lane Synopsis

When the "Sirens" suddenly appeared, an alien force with an arsenal that goes far beyond current technology, for the first time in history a divided humanity supported one another. Four countries, Eagle Union, Royal Navy, Sakura Empire and Iron Blood, formed the "Azur Lane" which paved the way for the improvement of modern warfare and led to an initial victory against the common threat. This weak union, however, was threatened by two opposing ideals that split the alliance in two and again fragmented humanity.

A seasoned fighter, Enterprise, nicknamed "Gray Ghost", wears Azur Lane on her shoulders to end the war. But behind its stoic custom hides a fragile girl who is afraid of the ocean. Even so, he continues to fight because he believes that this is the only purpose of his existence.
