It always struck me as odd how Yamato isn't very popular amongst Kancolle fans, despite being, y'know, the fucking Yamato. Will the anime change that, since it looks like she's going to get a big role?
Most popular BBs are the Kongous then the Nagatos. Yamato doesn't do anything except being a useless love hotel.
>Yamato isn't very popular
Because in the real world, she was useless and used as a command post for the Combined Fleet's admiralty, her service record is terrible. In the game she's resource heavy and doesn't perform all that well, RNG or not in latter maps.
I don't hate her, but having Haruna and Kongou and Hyuuga is enough for me when it comes to battleships.
Players like useful ships, and sadly with her consumption the Yamato isn't.
It isn't like she is not popular, but artists usually draw characters they know. Suffice to say, Yamato is not easy to get due to LSC hell.
This also explains why most rare ships like Taihou and the agano class aren't drawn that much either, despite they do have a lot of quirks.
If I had to rank the top BBs by popularity, it would look like
Would that be about right?
So why are Kancolle fans satisfied with this anyway? Now, I have no real knowledge of the franchise outside of ero doujinshi, but you'd think things like shitty CG and most importantly this horrible generic art style that completely fails to convey the girls' cuteness would upset at least some people.
It's competent and obviously has some budget, but I can't help but feel it's a giant waste.
Because it'd be impossible to animate each girl in their respective artist's style. You'd have to generalize no matter what, and the current art style isn't much worse than Kyoani K-on face, Working!!/SAO faces and it's definitely better than PA works Hanasaku Iroha face.
It's sad because you're probably shit.
>So why are Kancolle fans satisfied with this anyway
We were all expecting the anime to be complete shit, so when it turned out to not be complete shit we were surprised.
Because the anime is chock full of fanservice, just not of the sexual variety. As a Kancollefag it's basically impossible to hate it because it pushes so many of the right buttons.
Is it a perfect anime? No. Is it even good? Debatable. But it's very satisfactory.
I was talking shit about him.
I actually meant to post "you're probably right" but for some reason put shit instead.
I dunno, it's just... I expected the main draw for this series to be the cute girls, and they were all completely forgettable save for maybe the one that used "-poi" everywhere.
Like, I read kancolle doujinshi where the girls choking on admiral's cock still had more charm than anyone in this episode.
0. Mutsu, after all everyone crafts her all the time.
10. Nagato. Why so low? Because no one crafts her.
11. Ise because shit
12. Hyuuga because shit
Where is Fusou?
Fubuki and Mutsuki are complete nobodies, and a lot of the more iconic characters got little to no attention in the first episode. I don't know why they decided on this, but maybe future episodes will diversify.
Mutsuki you can say is a nobody since she is relegated to expedition whore along with Tenryuu and Tatsuta, but Fubuki is a starter. She's above Mutsuki, even more so now that she has a kai ni with actually good stats.
kumas repeating: The Newbuki technique is designed to help introduce the audience to the world; she learns about it the same time as we do. You can dislike this technique (and there has to be a fancy narrative term for this kind of thing), but it has a purpose.
Futaba's main Kancolle joke characters:
Hyuuga (weird Hyuuga, but more obsessed with Zuiun than Mogami like our weird Hyuuga)
Ushio (that MS paint face)
Shoukaku (that black blob)
Who are our main trio
Cuteness factor aside (every kanmusu is cute except for the dyke archetypes anyway) game fans are usually more drawn to the ships that go through hell with them, not those that are hell to get.
>Shoukaku (that black blob)
I wonder how that got started.
Useless hotel is useless. Musashi is the real nigga.
She's just too perfect, namefag
Well you said it yourself, is the yamato most people cant get her in the game and even if they have her it is just not cost-effective to deploy her or risk her getting damaged, much like her historic namesake, really, besides aparently she intimidates the other shipgirls so nobody tries to get closer to her, except for yahagi and beaver
>scrapping after going through all the trouble of leveling her to 70
Surely no one is that autismal.
You will be surprised.
Bunch of guys in /jp/ are already doing it. And autism wise they aren't even comparable to those NEETs in Moonland.
Mutsu is accidental and bad.
Yamashiro isn't that great and use her as scrap or modernization fodder all the time.
Had a harder time crafting my Kongou and Haruna then I did Hiei or Kirishima.
>leveled several Harunas to 75
>her K2 ended up being 80
>or risk her getting damaged
Unless you're fighting Re or BB Hime they hotels can take a hit no problem. It's repairing them when they do that's a bitch because of resource consumption.
>she intimidates other shipgirls
That's more on their side because of her aura and history rather than her doing it on purpose.
If you go by doujins:
Kongou > Haruna >>>> Nagato >>>> the rest of the BBs
If you go by Pixiv searches + fanart it would be Kongou > Nagato > Haruna > Bismarck > Hiei > the rest.
Fubuki isn't as easy to get as you think she, with that stupid light blue background.
And Amatsukaze farm usually happens during events time when she drops in various boss nodes.
Of course. What else would Ikazuchi be if she was not cute? Or there are for you.
The devs are cruel to keep all these poor girls waiting on their promises.
Only one true redhead in the game?
(Nenohi, Uzuki, and Kinu don't count.)
>Uzuki doesn't count
Will Uzuki-pyon ever be relevant?
Her name starts with the sound "aka" so under your weird rules, she's red.
I hope the coming event doesn't have ship lock to make it easier for new ttk attracted by the anime, that way I can actually concentrate on farming without having my best ships locked at a certain map.
Yes, the poor girl only wants friends but everyone is intimidated by her presence so nobody talks to her, being a loner doesnt translate well with fanartist so she doesnt get many works, she is no shotacon, sistercon, goofy, crazy, slut, she is just the migthy yamato, so of course she isnt as popular as others
Events are not made such that everyone (or close to everyone) can clear it. I'm sure even new admirals will be able to get through the first two maps.
All bosses will be unsinkable unless you have Fubuki in your fleet.
Mules cant be perfect, anon
Here, have some real perfection
best start dumping what you got.
So except for 6 ships my whole fleet would be grounded for a day or two while I get a new Fubuki to kai ni and waste a meager 5k fuel and precious buckets. Not that bad, I guess.
At least I have something to look forward in spending my resources on.
Why are the Shibafu carriers so soft?
(ignoring Houshou - she is a beautiful petite lady)
I wish Yamato had the option of wearing Musashi's uniform.
Musashi looks fucking awesome, bold and a nice touch of lewdness. Yamato looks far too neat. She needs to rough it up a bit.
Shibafu understands a man's deepest wishes.
Fuck flat flattops.
Just imagine the softness of their offspring.
Looking forward to the rest of the class.
Of course, or she'd look weird near them.
It is a mystery.
Can turkey join this club as a honorary, not-quite-flat-but-close-enough member?
das it mane
Suck my dick
For now I'd say yes but it's hard to see from her clothes. A new sprite/official image by Shibafu could clear it up.
>Musashi in Kokonoe costume
This was made to please me.
Until we see her anime bust increase.
Not avatarfagging son.
You have a slut fetish
It irks me that so few artists and even the anime fail to capture the fact that Yamato pads.
At first I didn't quite like Yamato as much as Musashi, but I've come ro realize she actually has quite an elegant design. Both the Hotels and Taihou are really great and deserve more attention than they get.
You calling these two sluts?
Still awake anon?
I want to adopt Hoppo-chan.
The USN already has representation in the game, it does not need more.
Hoppo did nothing wrong.
Again, Mogami is already in.
But the bearlady is the best Mogami.
Are these two the flagship yuri couple? I see a lot of them.
So do you guys think that Mutsuki will finally get a Kai 2 in the anime? Or will they sink her instead?
Kuma needs to
continuespreading her kuma virus.
She can die for all i care and make room for more interesting ships, i find her even more plain and simple than whobuki, since is wishtime i would like to see ayanami in her place so poi will have someone to go full nightmare of poi-lomon with
I'd prefer Shiranui myself.
Justice for Nui Nui class
Kadokawa recongizes male or female players but they do not recognize female teitokus, and homosexuality is not recognized for marriage in Japanese law
Try again m8
>they do not recognize female teitokus
They do not "recognize" male or female teitoku, because they don't need to.
Official media, however shitty, clearly has a female admiral outranking a male one.
That manga also has cute little Poi acting like a cute towards everyone, are you okay with that as well?
Oh boy, that's not what I meant to post. I meant cunt.
I accept that different versions of the same shipgirl can act radically different from each other depending on their surroundings.
Regular Poi is cute, manga Poi is cunt, a common mistake.
Bomber Grape Ooichi should be canon. You can only marry her/win her respect by beating her in a ship against man battle.
Since she is the star of the anime along with whobuki while ships like the dragons and all the interesting and/or cute ships are background fodder, thas when, she is hogging a spotligth she doesnt deserve
I can't tell whether Bomber Grape's fleet counts as hot-blooded or just absolutely cuhrayzee
Can I pick both?
Also more accurate depiction of Kongou
>Out ranking Admiral
Also that female Admiral comes from an awful official manga that might as well get blacklisted by the devs for being so OoC for Shimakaze and others
How come all the Admirals in the LNs are male? Check mate, yurifag.
Yamashiri's so lovely
Admiral is the meaning of TTK and applies to any in-game commander, regardless of rank. You will be called an admiral by your ships even if you are a bottom-rank, beginning player.
>Also that female Admiral comes from an awful official manga that might as well get blacklisted by the devs
Yet there is not a single word by the devs on blacklisting it, and until it is it represents the fact that female admirals are as valid as male admirals in the Kancolle universe.
He's retarded for thinking his dislike of a shitty manga makes it unofficial
There only needs to be one female admiral in official media to confirm that they are accepted. Nothing implies (and rather, it is incredibly unlikely) that they are present in the same amount as males.
That manga is literally awful, only a yurifag shitposter or secondary would defend it for having a female Admiral. Its really fucking bad.
Mist one is largely summerized though not completely 100%, with Zuikaku and Kaga's rivarly and all. Also hugely super pervy admiral who tries to shove his hand between Shoukaku's thighs while she's telling Zuikaku, the newcomer, how pervy he is right there.
LNs > Manga in canon, newfag.
>LNs > Manga in canon, newfag.
Enless the LNs explicitly stated that female admirals are not allowed, the fact that the admirals are male in the LN and the fact that there is a female admiral in the Manga do not conflict in any way.
Unless, of course, you have the translation that does explicitly say only male admirals are accepted in the fleet.
>Zuikaku and Kaga's rivalry and all
I need this translated in full now
How about you kill yourself, yurifag. Marriage system in the game has to follow Japanese law with civil unions and marriages.
Game and devs only account for the gender of the player during registration, not in-game. So please tell me where its stated female or yuri is canon.
Speaking of wich why Ayanami kai ni art is so normal? She and her crew also went berserk at her last battle like poi, hell she was like a rabid dog, even traded fire with a freaking battleship yet her art isnt is as ferocious as poi's
She's doing it for Zuikaku's sake. Truly she is Mou Sugoi.
Shibafu is unable to draw anything but plain.
As expected of a Legendary Senpai!
>That manga is literally awful, only a yurifag shitposter or secondary would defend it for having a female Admiral.
I'm defending it for being official, and I hate yurispammer as much as the next person. You are as wrong as yurispammer, just in the opposite direction.
Now where's your fleet, secondary?
It is a "provsional' marriage, as you like to conveniently ignore.
>Game and devs only account for the gender of the player during registration, not in-game.
The law does not state what is accepted, it states what is prohibited. If it does not explicitly ask for the gender of the admiral it does not prohibit either gender from becoming admiral.
>So please tell me where its stated female or yuri is canon.
I said nothing about yuri, but as said before, the official manga shows a female admiral and the official LNs have stated nothing to overwrite or dispute it.
I will never get over how horrendous her design is.
Would you a 36 year old Haruna with two kids?
>Marriage system in the game has to follow Japanese law with civil unions and marriages.
>video games have to follow Japanese law in-game
So was Skyrim or any other game portraying violent activity also banned in Japan?
We're not insane yurifag, we're just saying that there is nothing ever stated that prohibits females from becoming Admirals (indeed there is official material that depicts it) or prohibits female admirals from partaking in the marriage (temp) system, because shit in the 2-d virtual video game universe aren't bound to Japanese law outside of legislation aimed directly at video game content.
Exactly. No rational being expects video game universes to have to comply with national law in the real world.
Besides her stupid clothes, the worst two points about her design are the scruffy hair style and the black nail polish.
Seriously, I am disappointed in Yoshinori for making this mess of a character. No one else he drew looked anywhere near this bad.
You niggers are gay beyond belief.
That's a weird way to say you have shit taste.
So you couldn't even make a picture of your home screen with the time stamp? Everyone here already realizes who the secondary in this argument is.
That would explain why the other girls don't have any yuri doujinshi.
If one yuri doujinshi even by a top tier author like Arai Kei means most popular pairing.
There are some threesome doujinshi with Akagi x Kaga x Admiral though.
