I don't get it. I never played kancolle. Never understood the hype behind it, and don't understand it now. Anime is just a glorified commercial for the game, with a lot of cameos and winks to those who played the game. I don't get it. Why it's good?
>>
>>119511357
You mean why is the anime good?

because of all those cameos and winks to people who already played the game, you said it yourself.
>>
>>119512020
Ok, then tell me why the game is good. I never understood that either. It's perfect material for doujins, is there something more to it?
>>
>>119512375
The game? It's fucking shit. And I play it.

They just hit the jackpot with the right kind of cute girls in the right kind of setting with the right kind of voice actors. It's the mountain of fanart and doujinshi (the non-h kind, mostly) that make it all worthwhile.

I hate what Kantai/Kancolle has done to naval and naval aviation. Now I understand how the tankfags and planefags felt after GuP and Strike Witches.

Not to mention, the "ship" movement, design and combat makes the least sense out of all three in Kancolle.

Really warships are one of the few things that make the least sense to moeify.
>>
>>119512748
I hear tankfags weren't that disappointed with GuP. Some of the stuff like the I-Go driving like a Ferrari and the "drop Hetzer superstructure on 38(t) suspension = instant Hetzer" parts did make some scratch their heads, but other than that there were no complaints.
>>
>>119512741
Except that Kancolle has like 5 actual unique characters and the rest are just generic moegirls filled in with different colors.
>>
>>119512566

>>
>>119512748

You can moeify everything, end of story.

However, watching Kancolle animated was a weird experience, I knew I was geting into something absurd, but actually watching it is something entirely different.

I will still watch the shit out of these ships.

Game already covers that with over 2.5 million active accounts and rising, only money Kadokawa makes is from players buying extra rings which is optional and doujinshi/official LNs, manga, and figurines.

Anime isn't required, because the game already does the job of advertising the kanmusus.
>>
>>119513826
When you look at the shipgirls' lines, you can see that there is an underlying theme of fatalism throughout the whole game.

Speaking of which, they have lines for different levels of severity of damage and being sunk.

There is also a repair shipgirl you can deploy.
>>
>>119513591
>free or play
Sure. Pay to win tho.
And the anime IS a 30 minutes commercial for the game. That is the main reason it got animated. Just like other game conversions (Persona, DGRP etc.)

Confirmed for having no idea what you are talking about at all, there is absolutely nothing P2W in Kancolle

Stop being wrong

One of the reasons why it got so popular is because it's as far from pay to win as can be. Do any research before you start telling people how it is.

anon, a single battleship consists of about 2,000 crewmembers, if we go the GuP route that means at least 1 cute butt per every square foot, thats a lot of cute butts

It could be like GuP where they do realistic battles and its all simulated but still live ammo fired, they could even simulate battle damage by careful flooded of the lower compartments, which means cute wet butts too!

It would be great if they made a series like Hornblower got, but better. O'Brian's books are just so much better. Russell Crowe made an excellent Aubrey and whoever they got for Maturin was good too.

You're missing the point, you autistic /v/irgin. I'm pretty certain there is no money involved or "trades" in the same shit with the hats and collectibles with TF2 in Kancolle.

Stop posting.

This isn't a debate, actual in game Kancolle sales are incredibly tiny compared to its merchandise.

Seeing Kancolles hurt or sinking is my fetish.

I remember seeing some comics about a fleet sent to a suicide mission, anyone know where to find those?

Also those of historical ship deaths.

It's actually rather tame in terms of superstructure, see pic related for some real sexy superstructure.

I'm a huge lifelong and professional tankfag, and tankfags who hate GuP for inaccuracies should probably chill the fuck out. There's not that many of them though.

Only folks worse are airsoftfags who hated Sabagebu for "not accurately representing" the chuuniest game around.

Love the Fuso and Kongo class for their tall masts, but Takao class cruisers had some glorious looking space age superstructure.

Does modern airsoft even have recoil? I mean I'd kill for some simulated recoil to make it more fun. I'd always get bored after a few games and small pranks. Now paintball is fun, though I played this paint less variety where the guns shoot rubber balls and you wear body armour fitted with sensors and an electronic scoreboard for each team, that is really fucking fun.
>>
>>119519355
There are electric and gas blowback airsoft rifles with a decent amount of kick to them.
>>
>>119519355
A few Gas Blowbacks have recoil. I have a GGB G17 that kicks back a fair bit.

Rocket mast

>scanning the horizon for the enemy fleet at the bridge
>suddenly above the horizon a bright flash and a distant roar
>on your binocs a tall structure comes into view
>this giant rocket appears to hover over the ocean
>suddenly distant sounds of thunder erupt across the sea
>"BATTLE STATIONS"
>incoming shells from over the horizon splash with deadly accuracy
>rocket mast descends downwards to the hull of the ship it separated from which has now reached its position
>your fleet retreats in ruins, as the enemy fleet just now comes into view on the horizon

It's both terrifying and hilarious!
>>
>>119519800
It's funny how IJN were so huge and yet so fragile due to poor metallurgy skills.

Also it's cannons were weaker than a super dreadnought's.

Nelson class were pure sex

>Britain didn't even keep one as a museum

Damn shame

It's not poor metallurgy skills if they didn't have metals to start with.

I know, man. It sucks.

But Britain sorely needed whatever metal it could get after the war.

At least it kept the Belfast. That was a cool little cruiser. If it ever got a Kanmusu, she'd be a scrappy one.

That is such a weird configuration but it looks really really cool.

Old fashioned, in a way. The buisness end is most definately the front.

One look at her you know she means business and won't turn tail, there are no rear armaments besides some 6-7" guns.
>>
>>119520334
Would that configuration mean that its combined broadside barrages were more accurate?
>>
>>119519952

What? IJN cannons were good. They were more accurate than USN guns.
>>
>>119520276
It was actually both.
>>
>>119510924
>when mixed with bauxite
That was oddly specific.
>>
>>119521380

Their metallurgy was not poor. Their steel was just worse quality compared to US ships. US steel was actually better than German too.
>>
>>119521484
It was. Go read articles on the topic before posting. It was quite common to fix their ships with barely fixated pieces of metal. Go and die for the emperor was the motto of the time because they knew if you needed repairs you're probably not coming back.
