Glass Fleet (ガラスの艦隊), subtitled La Légende du Vent de l’Univers (lit. the Legend of the Wind of the Universe), is an anime TV series, co-animated by Satelight and Gonzo and produced by Sony Pictures Entertainment, Asahi Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), GDH and Sotsu Agency, which first aired in Japan on Asahi Broadcasting Corporation from April 4, 2006 and September 21, 2006. It spanned a total of 26 episodes, with an alternate episode, 17 also being released.
The story is set in an alternative universe, in which self-proclaimed Emperor Vetti seeks nothing but power over others; the handsome lone wolf Cleo – who carries the blood of the overthrown royal family – seeks to bring down Vetti; and the rebel aristocrat Michel Volban seeks to establish a people’s republic. Michel eventually teams up with Cleo, and the main story unfolds from there. Glass no Kantai (Glass Fleet) is an odd anime. Combining elements of space opera and medieval Europe, its strength is in its strong characterization of its three main characters. The People’s Army led by Michel stands against Vetti’s newly founded empire. Upon seeing how strong the Glass Battleship is, Michel tries to get Cleo, the captain of the Glass Battleship, to help People’s Army overthrow Vetti’s empire. And together they fight against Vetti’s empire.
