In a recent interview with the producers of the anime with Japanese anime magazine Animage, they asked the question in regards to the recent release of the first promotional video. They ask how much of the series will feature the everyday lives of the ship girls, in which the producer responded:

Looking at the story as a whole, approximately 70% will be the depiction of the daily lives of the characters and 30% are depictions of battle. I feel battle is more important in the second half of the story and the character development of Fubuki throughout the story is a major highlight of the anime. After being unsuccessful at first she begins to struggle, but tries to work hard, so please pay attention to her as she grows gradually.
