Just in case some of you haven't seen this:

You can ignore the bad acting and the cheesy soundtrack (I muted it, and it was much better), there's some really good CGI in there.

The clip is from a Japanese mini-series set during the Meiji
Era called Cloud Above the Slope. And the 4 min clip is the only naval action in the series.

Shame. Would love to see more of the battle. The Oslyabya sinking is spectacular.

I am impressed by the volume of smoke coming from the stacks. That seems very realistic to me.

Yes, looked like good work by the CGI crew! And I didn't find the music that off-putting.
