I can't stop lughing out loud whenever i see this
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?
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.
It's like Touhou or Pokemon. Everybody has their individual favorite character that they identify with, argue and shitpost about. I think that's the true appeal of these 100+ character franchises.
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.
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.
Someday I will, anon, someday.
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.
Well it's not like they were wearing tank parts on them and holding little turrets in their hands while driving across the ground on tank treads stuck to their feet.
Maybe, but why warships for gods sake, what's next, moe spaceships?
The only girls who are really boring are maybe half the destroyers. Which is a good chunk of the roster (a 1/4, maybe) granted, but still. Most of the BBs/CLs/CVs/CAs/etc are all unique and fun.
Fuck yeah they are.
What are some anime that feature warships heavily?
I know of Strike Witches - seeing Allied and Axis fleets sailing in formation together united against a larger enemy made my dick erect
Can't read lolicon doujinshi in french, anon. Get your priorities straight.
Yeah that I haven't seen yet.
It seems like there is as little warship animu as there is vidya.
One could probably come up with tons of character designs just using Air Jordans for reference. Sell Js with moe anime figurine bonuses etc. Would sell like mad in both Japan and the US(shoefags can be even more insane than buyfags).
Somebody fund it. You're a genius, anon.
>"aahh! onii-chan I can barely fit through your canal!"
>shoefags can be even more insane than buyfags).
I never thought about it till now but do shoefags not wear some shoes they buy outside the house, just like some terrible buyfags don't open up their figmas and leave them trapped in the box?
I think you're mistaken.
Kancolle isn't about naval warfare, it's about navel warfare.
>Kongo class goes back in time to WWII
Now this I gotta read/watch, thanks anons.
Reminds me of the film "The Final Countdown", modern US Aircraft carrier goes back in time to 1941, F14's fighting Zeroes, good stuff.
Pretty much. Basically the same ideas and principles go into both hobbies. I was never into shoes but I knew a rich black kid who had a collection bigger than this.
Haven't seen it, what happens when they get hit in Kancolle?
Do they slowly sink? For some reason the thought of that is both terrifying and hilarious
>Maybe, but why warships for gods sake, what's next, moe spaceships?
>Japanese warships appeal to the Japanese
You don't say.
Combine military/history otaku and moe pigs, sell like hotcakes.
lrn2mecha musume, /k/-kun
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.
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.
>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.)
Why not a GuP style animu then?
I would totally watch that, seeing those hot sweaty animu girls working the propeller shafts and cleaning the gun tubes.
Confirmed for having no idea what you are talking about at all, there is absolutely nothing P2W in Kancolle
Only addons you can buy are expansions to have or enlarge your fleets from more then 100 kanmusus or buy wedding rings
Stop being wrong
Little girls attempting to reload the Yamato's main cannons would be quite amusing, I'll give you that.
Or just combine them, whatever.
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!
Also, should I finally watch GuP and give it a go?
Cute girls doing cute war things is kinda nice.
I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.
As long as there are ships I guess.
On that note, any anime with cute girls and 17th century tall ships?
Maybe with cute animu pirate girls, I would watch that.
Guess I'll have to give it a go.
Too bad the last scanlators dropped the series back in early 2013...shame, we were left off on a cliffhanger in Manchukuo
That's too many butts anon. With a crew that large the viewer wouldn't be able to bond with the butts. You have to keep the cast from getting too large or else you'll risk confusing the audience.
This is set during the early Victorian era rather than the 17th century and is a manga, but there is this (not translated)....
I want to see a Patrick O'Brian-like series
We could do what the movie Battleship did where it took only 8 people to commandeer and operate a warship that usually requires a crew of 2,000
Or maybe automate some systems and hand wave it away. I don't know.
Japan's more about ninjas than pirates.
Well, there's One Piece..
I'm of the
>I'm not interested in boatsluts, but
I should watch that yeah, from what I've seen and read it's like Pirate Shenanigans: The Anime
Still waiting for them to confirm that the arpeggios are actually spaceships chilling on earth's oceans.
Their technology doesn't leave many other conclusions than that, really.
Why haven't you downloaded the superior subs yet?
>>ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED??!!
>>IS THIS NOT WHY YOU'RE HERE??!!
I still wish for shota-Admiral.
I'm going to become a KanColle secondary and there is nothing you can do to stop me!
As long as you're enjoying yourself.
Only this Admiral is the real one in my headcanon. Manly as fuck.
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. I'm not sure why they called it Master and Commander when it's almost entirely the plot of 'Far Side of the World'. Hell just make more movies. I thought MnC performed above average at the box office, surprised they didn't plan on more.
>Not multiple admirals
>Come do some water skiing they said
>It's gonna be fun they said
> what's next, moe spaceships?
>Space race anime
>cute rockets doing cute thing
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.
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.
and of course there is always the Fuso class
They're all huge anon, especially out of the water.
These glorious icebergs of the sea, brimming with guns.
Glorious pagoda mast.
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.
>>Only folks worse are airsoftfags who hated Sabagebu for "not accurately representing" the chuuniest game around.
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.
What bout triple guns in a triple turret configuration?
>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
>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!
Nelson class were pure sex
>Britain didn't even keep one as a museum
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.
One look at her you know she means business and won't turn tail, there are no rear armaments besides some 6-7" guns.
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.
