Jun Nakagawa is taking over as director, with Yuu Nobuta, the TV anime’s director now being the film’s chief director. Much of the staff are also returning as well, though A-1 Pictures is now doing the production in place of the now bankrupt Production IMS.

High School Fleet, also known as Haifuri, first premiered back in spring 2016, with Production IMS animating it. Here’s how Aniplex describes the anime’s story:

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.”
