am I a hypocrite?
>>
>>119764325
To be fair strike witches is pretty crazy.
>>
>>119764325
I dropped KanColle right after seeing the whole "muh totally traditional zen Kyudo"-girl wearing short skirt and laying arrows that transforms halfway into planes and everyone being super serious and going "woaw it's so beautiful".
What the fuck, Strike Witches was crazy as fuck but somehow it was still watchable.
>>
Newfag to Strike Witches franchise here.

Where do I get into the series?

I was actually referring to all the mediums, but I'll stick with the anime for now.

>>119764835
You can watch the show first before going into the LN and manga. Start with the first LN if you like it darker.
>>
>>119764325
Well, not really. It's all mecha musume but within that genre you have some subtypes.

Strike Witches have the girl's bodies (legs, specifically) covered with their mecha component, while Kancolle is closer to equipping a special foothold and a large backpack.

It's probably relevant that before the popularity boom, Kancolle's design orientation is towards moe (notice the shift towards more crisp designs), while SW has been staying true to its 'cool' side since day 1.
>>
How much of a lolicon do I have to be to enjoy Strike Witches?

Will my enjoyment rate increase if I like loli?
>>
>>119764325
Weird that I thought the exact opposite. As I watched Kancolle, I thought "Strike Witches makes way more sense than this".
>>
>>119764325
I feel like Strike Witches makes more sense than KanColle, and also has better designs.

b-b-but that's magic .. and magic is real
>>
>>119764325
SW makes far more sense, if only because magic
SW's weapons are also normal weapons, Kancolle's miniature cannons looks stupid as hell
SW also doesn't have any stupid conditions such as "only little girls can kill them etc", their gear only let them fly freely to fight at close range with high mobility, and nothing else.
>>
>>119767660
>SW makes far more sense, if only because magic
Kancolle are also powered by magic especially with bunch of fairies around.

>SW's weapons are also normal weapons, Kancolle's miniature cannons looks stupid as hell
Also, Kancolle have different class of ships fighting like Destroyers, Heavy Cruisers, Fast Battleships which they tried to get as historically accurate as possible on their armament but just downsize it to human size and as shown in the show are pretty devastating. The designs can be a little bit inconsistent but that's what you get when you have bunch of different artists drawing them though they are trying to fix those by introducing the Kai 2 version of the ships.

>doesn't have any stupid conditions such as "only little girls can kill them etc
It is not conditions, they are spirits of warships reborn and born as girls because ships tends to be referred as 'she'.

Glad you can understand. To make it clear, Abyssals are also souls of warships reborn but they are more of ships malice personified. By this you can have both abyssal version of the same fleet girl fighting her human form fleet girl.

Some of the kancolle designs and weapons are the most retarded things ever, it looks like they are playing with toys and plastic models.

This is way beyond the logic of girls with planes on their legs.

You're one episode into a show and calling it shit because it hasn't explained literally everything. Did you ever think that maybe Fubuki, who is the PoV character and doesn't understand any of this either, might have some of these questions answered at the school she was supposed to start going to on her second day at the base?
>>
SW explained everything straight on.
>>
>>119772032
You mean the 2min slideshow that simply dumped everything without any explanation beyond "this is how it is now look at these cute girls!"?

Face it, they did that shit so that they could jump right into the show without having to do any worldbuilding or development. Its lazy as fuck
>>
>>119772032
No, she just showed up, fought a battle, and had all her personal problems solved by an offscreen conversation within one episode
>>
>>119772198
Kadokawa has purposely done that with Kancolle so that the fandom and other supplementary pieces of media can interpret it in their own way. The Shimakaze manga has its own story, Calm Seas has its own story, I'm sure the Kagerou and Crane LNs have their own ways of explaining it, but we'll never know because they're never gonna be translated, and all the doujinshi have their own ways of explaining things.

Kancolle is a franchise where you can't expect everything to be explained to you in one sitting, especially in the anime where they've made it clear that they're gonna be pandering more to the fans than newcomers.
>>
>>119772198
It's a show about ships that are girls. What actually needs explaining here?
>>
So are ship girls born or made? If the first, are they born with their weapons too?
>>
http://pastebin.com/AiGEeTPL
>>
>>119772588
More like they didn't think things through because there is no need to do see on a Mobage format. And for the anime rather than proposing an interpretation then went with a "who cares ?" that leaves anime-only newcomers with the impression of watching a clusterfuck of stupidity and cute girls.

Seriously, I was interested in Kancolle, but this first episode drove me away from the franchise.
At least the ero-doujinshis are good.

Shipgirls are resurrected in a form of a goddess, while Abyssals are resurrected in a form of malice.

And that is one of the problems, the first episode treated is as a given that the viewers would know and accept everything and gave no indication that it would be otherwise later. But I admit I could be wrong and expand of some ideas in later episodes, that is just not the impression they give.

I liked SW and expected to like KC, but it feels stale so far.

ThereĀ“s a fair ammount of historical fanservice (for example,all the main characters are based on mostly WWII flying aces, so the more you know about them as well as general WWII history, the more is there fo you) .Also, one episode of the the 2nd session is set in not-Rome, so lots of architectural fanservice there.

Of all the girls you could marry, why would you marry Whobuki?
>>
>>119775842
Well that was fucking anticlimactic.

You could have them get turned into tiny girls. Like Akagi uses her bow and the arrows turn into a 1/8 scale sakamoto mio.

Isn't pretty much everyone married to Shimakaze, except for the most loyal Strike Witches fans that like one of the Germans?
>>
>>119775980
People get attached to their starters, you know.
>>
>>119776007
But only one episode aired.

>>119776047
Hell no, you can really tell from PvP matches that people hardly ever marry Shimakaze. Most of the time it's hotels, Kaga, Kongou, Haruna, or subs.
>>
>>119765120

Why are the character designs so off?
>>
>>119776047
I never hear about people marrying Shimakaze, but people marry their Kaga a lot.
>>
>>119773087
>>119772933
I wrote this before looking at the pastebin. But overall it's the same problem. You don't need a lenghty backstory for a browser game.
And the variety of designs is a plus if the strong point of your game is collecting cute girls.

But for an anime having so much design variation is a liability, and having a lackluster setting is dangerous for any story in a serie format.

I don't think Im going to play it though, I already have games I have to spend time on, and tons of anime and eroge backlog I have to go through, I don't really want to burn time in a browser game to get a Nagato sprite saying nice things to me.
>>
>>119776047
>Isn't pretty much everyone married to Shimakaze
No, among primaries/people who play the game, she's not actually that popular.
>>
>>119776007
Strike Witches up to now is much stronger than Kancolle. The first episode of Kancolle was not very good. But it will all depend on how Kancolle develops.

You'd probably have an easier time finding people who married Yamashiro than finding people who married Shimakaze. At least on /a/ and /jp/.

to put it in the simplest way I can, it feels like it's trying to hard.

If you want to make a stupid show about genderswapped WWI aces protecting the world (while also not wearing pants), go fucking nuts.

Strike witches felt so fucking marketed as a "silly, fun anime, yay!" that I just couldn't stand it. It really felt like the producers were going down a cliche checklist.

Boob girl? Got that.
Yuri by the truckload? Uh-huh
Stupid gaijin american who can't keep her tits in her shirt? No doubt.
P....Pansu?!? Dude, none of the characters wear pants. Except the one girl with leggings I guess. But she doesn't wear underwear in addition, just the leggings.
Is every character dumbed down to the point of being waifubait and nothing else? How could we forget?

I understand that every female character in anime will become a waifu to someone eventually. But please, don't build a character with "waifu qualities" listed higher than "actual personality".

I also hate how anime fights are so damn jumpy, it's like there's no actual skill or strategy being shown. I'd love to see strike witches redone by the same guy who did the choreography for "the raid", I'd watch that shit.

I would bet more on full frontal collision to the ground since the thrust point on these is your thighs, and without wings to support the weight of your body the units would have to deliver shitloads of thrust to be able to fly a human, and would be incredible unstable to use, meaning a simple mistake in body positioning, and you would eat a lot of dirt in that landing

The propellers are at the end of the legs, and they don't have a knee joint in most models, so I would bet it would be quite hard to hit yourself with them, hitting the propeller on another leg or on the other propeller though, without a limiter in the crotch would totally happen all the time
>>
Strike Witches make an effort to make everything work in-universe. Kancolle's first episode was just mediocre as fuck. Spread itself way too thin and didn't give the conflict any weight at all.

While in KC, specifically in the game, mentions about who are these shipgirls to be exact and what would happen if they're resigned from duty, how are their armaments made, the logic behind on why they're the only ones who can fight, and giving you hints who are the Abyssals.

>>119778057
if you try to be something, you're not that thing. If you try to be funny, you're not. If you try to look tough, you're not. Having qualities like "funny" are personality traits, which come from temperament and past experiences. Likewise, you look tough not because you're wearing leather and a stupid collar... thing, you look tough because you dress simply and work out.

You can only argue that you don't like action and fanservice

You can't argue that this isn't a series that delivers in what it's supposed to do
>>
>>119778523
Yes, the anime is made exclusively for gamers because that's how this franchise works. If you don't know 25+ characters alone in the first episode, then you might as well just drop it because it's impossible to understand their quirks and references (unless you have knowledge in IJN ships). But what luck! We have wikia and http://pastebin.com/AiGEeTPL for newcomers.

>I expect the Abyssals to be fleshed out more though
We expect that it the last few episodes will be the re-enactment of the Bombing of Henderson Field, and hopefully the Battle of Midway.

No one reasonable is expecting that to end the first season, considering the Midway event was relatively recent. It'll likely end with Iron Bottom Sand, with Midway in S2.

>>119779004
Action cannot function by itself, action needs to be backed up by characters and plot or else there's no point.
Consider the following: Die hard is one of the greatest action movies ever made but without the character of John MCclane it wouldnt be nearly as good because there is no one to be rooting for, you have no connection to the action and thus its just explosions and bullets flying around.
Explosions and bullets are not the only part of an action scene and if you are seriously saying that these shows are good just because you enjoy the doujins then you should quit watching anime.

I see your point but using tits as a metaphor for tits is really weird.

No, tits being a metaphor for sex.
I use tits here because I can't have sex with a non-real character, but you bet you ass I can look at her tits.

Unless you've been building up all this characterization I'll just tell you to put your tits away. I can just find some real ones after all.

Not knowing about either series but seeing the characters sometimes due to going on /a/ and /toy/ I'd say Shimakaze looks just as goofy as any of the SWs, but she's the exception. Strike witches is pretty off the wall even within this series of "give little girls guns or robot arms or some shit" shows we've been seeing lately (and perhaps for a much longer time and I just didn't notice).

I like Strike Witches, it feels like a monster (nueroi) of the week show with cute girls (in pants). The different country relations make it semi-interesting sometimes.

Kancolle seems weird to me though. I never really care for the military otaku aspects of these shows (including planes/pilots in SW). I don't know why I can't get into it like I could with SW, they're not that different.
I think I started watching SW after I really liked the OPs, so maybe it's that.
