The High School Fleet anime originally aired on April 7, 2016. Yuu Nobuta (A Good Librarian Like a Good Shepherd) directed the project at Production IMS, with Naoto Nakamura providing character designs. Reiko Yoshida (The Cat Returns, Girls und Panzer) was in charge of series composition for the show.

The title spawned an OVA, which hit retailers in 2017.

Aniplex of America currently holds the domestic rights to the High School Fleet anime. They describe the title as:

Living by the sea, protecting the sea, and journeying across the sea…They’re the BLUE MERMAIDS! Because of a shift in tectonic plates around 100 years ago, Japan lost much of its area to submergence. To preserve Japan’s territories, Coastal Cities sprung up, one after the other. Eventually, they became Marine Cities, and along with the expansion of sea-lanes to connect them, the need arose for a sizable staff to protect the seas. At the same time, maritime jobs were becoming more popular among women. Hence, the BLUE MERMAIDS, tasked with keeping the seas safe, had become every female student’s dream job. This is when childhood friends Akeno Misaki and Moeka China enroll in a marine high school in Yokosuka, along with other girls who share their goal of “BECOMING A BLUE MERMAID.”
