Slow and lethargic.
I think I got through the first 10 or 12 episodes of this series, and I finally had to turn it off. Little action, heavy predictable drama, over the top typical Japanese voice acting (even for the American roles), I just had a hard time coming to terms with what I was seeing.

An aegis cruiser (an American design) of the Japanese SDF navy is whisked back to the Second World War where she does absolutely nothing. Or, if she did, then it was after the first dozen or so episodes that I saw, which were filled with tension, but little else.

I'm not really sure who the target audience is for this thing. Probably teenage Japanese boys with a bit of nationalism running through their veins because of familial ties to the conflict. But, even so, I'm wondering how the plot and story reflect anything significant.

On the upside it's respectably animated. It has good production values, if nothing else. But I wouldn't bother.

Watch at your own risk.
