Kancolle is a guaranteed hit they said.
2hu killer they said.
Are you ready for laughingstock of the year? Tomino must be happy his shit won't be the #1 joke anymore.
That is what you get for trying to copy a better show
Isn't the cast getting smaller a good thing?
Now we just need Blondie who says fucking Poi at the end of every fucking sentence to fucking choke on a goddamn insta-kill torpedo.
I don't know, 2hu's definitely lost a lot of market share, but I think it'll outlast Kancolle.
But Kancolle stuff is definitely a lot more visible in those shops you're right.
The episode was really badly written. To the point where even the Japanese were bothered by it.
Anyways, next episode is centered around one of the most popular characters in the franchise (something they should have done earlier), so it'll probably regain some lost ground.
>Doujins make no money for Kadokawa.
Who the fuck care if Kadokawa makes no money.
They dont even want to invest anything into the anime. They commissioned fucking Diomedea and disgusting used 3DCG on the biggest IP franchise of the current decade. It is their loss.
>Right let's build up a CGDCT atmosphere with some fun but not very tense atmosphere, that way we can appeal to a wide variety of pe-
>Director: Let's kill off one of the girls in episode 3, we're going to make the next madoka
Yeah, that's true, but at the doujin resale shops they're definitely on point with the kancolle trend. When I went to a tora no Ana(?) just after last summer comiket they had the Kancolle stuff dominate the tables out front, and the 2hu stuff was in the shelving out back.
Though that was the lewd floor; 2hu has a lot of non-ecchi content, where as beyond a few doujinshi spinoffs from the manga, kancolle is pretty light on the non-lewd fanbase creations right? I'm not too sure though. I zipped through the non-lewd sections, as you do.
Are you doubting the ability for Japs to do repetitive tasks?
The entire thing is poorly written and possesses even more lacklustre direction; it's a total phone in.
I mean, I wasn't expecting much, when I saw the PVs playing back in Japan I burst out laughing at how goofy they looked fucking skating across the water weightlessly; but I kinda hoped that the director would've boned up on his classic war films, like Tora Tora Tora or the Battle of Midway, stuff like that. Instead we have SoL stuff crudely shoehorned into suddenly serious/trite kinda-sorta combat.
Huh, no shit? I totally didn't notice. What that fuck are they even about? Or am I assuming a lot of the manga I've heard about are official when instead they're semi-official player content stuff a la 2hu?
>What that fuck are they even about?
I'm going to assume you haven''t really tried to penetrate Kancolle beyond the porn. I'm not being judgmental, that's pretty much most of /a/.
It was basically a naval Strike Witches before episode 3, which is all it really needed to be. Nothing particularly good but at worst mediocre. The newest development was fucking dumb from both a narrative and economic point of view.
Akagi. I don't even follow Kancolle, but her character design is fucking top notch.
Well, there you go, kancolle has some pretty great official artwork around it.
Plus for the Japs they get to have a sense of "our supposedly excellent blue water fleet actually gets to do something and /win/."
Eh, if you're into naval history Kancolle as a franchise does actually have a lot to offer in terms of referential stuff.
I guess the problem is that Strike Witches parades historical references from all the allied and axis powers, whereas Kancolle is almost purely focused on the Japanese navy (with a few Germans and a Soviet).
>x does aspect a better
>y does aspect b better
>z does aspect c better
>What does Kancolle anime have?
Cross-fanbase shitposting like this.
Also, go back to your NGNL shitpost thread.
These are more or less my sentiments.
I was somewhat interested by the premise and designs, but seeing everything in motion is hilariously bad. It's trying so hard to be serious, but I can't stop laughing when I'm watching it.
>What that fuck are they even about?
Anything? It's not like they're constrained by any plot.
Here we see kindergartner versions of the characters having a snowball fight.
Funny story, I actually think that the skating is the most potentially awesome of the anime, if only they ACTUALLY FUCKING SKATE instead of just sliding lazily like a retard.
Prism Shows or Kaleido Star have great skating and they're very intense.
Are people seriously that surprised they killed off a ship? I mean, the deaths in game are permanent aren't they? It'd make sense to kill off a worthless character early to show there are actual stakes involved. The really hardcore audience will be a lot more involved in the story if their favourite shipfu is at risk of being sunk.
Sure the way they did it was fucking terrible and utterly rote; it couldn't have been more death flags raised if they tried the old "This is my last mission before retirement! Then I get to go home and see my pregnant wife for the first time in years!"
But, as a device for the show, I don't think it was a misstep.
It's as you said
>Sure the way they did it was fucking terrible and utterly rote
I'm fine with the sinking of a ship. Hell, it was historically accurate (well, as much as it could be) also which was a bonus. However, it was so poorly done I'd rather they just not have bothered at all.
My point is that skating can be very intense if they actually try. I can understand if the bigger ships just lazily slides but I expect something better from the smaller ships.
I think we need to accept that
an ass-pulla cop-out is very possible.
-they find her anyway
-sub-girls find her
-corrupted but rescued later
No, they really aren't.
Kancolle has shitloads of historically accurate references, Kisaragi fucking sinking to a freak hit by a small bomb was a historical reference ffs.
they even got the paint on the zero fighters right, including squadron/carrier markings.
Ha, it's fucking terrible isn't it? I had a giggle every time I saw an ad. Seriously though, it's just so incredibly floaty; you get no sense of weight or momentum from what should be girls skating on the water overloading with metal shit.
It's like what the other anon mentioned; if they were seriously skating, with skating physics, it'd be an interesting dynamic. Instead it's just like "who cares, they just fucking fly on the water, don't ask questions, ship magic."
>(not even the g4u bundle).
You kidding right, game genre ranking is way harder fight than BD/DVD genre ranking
By the way what the hell happened to Tales of Zestiria? 2 stars?
Well the game might be good but the show is hardly the most interesting one....
Anyone can perform suspension of disbelief and it's fucking easy too.
Did anyone question why the Witches don't get their legs shredded with those leg attachments, by the way?
It's fucking war. There's no episode of backstory the moment somebody gets killed off.
>the game might be good
the game is a living nightmare I cannot wake from
This franchise really had a great start. It had a chance to become another Touhou.
But Kadokawa fucked up completely.
>become another Touhou
Not really. It doesn't have a big dedicated community. So far it has only gotten printed works, not like Touhou that has fan games, music and whatnot. We can wait and see where it goes.
What were Kadokawa thinking, really?
>Bans doujin games
>The only further games it develops are fucking card arcade games (making the ban on doujin games seem pointless)
>Gives the anime to a cheap studio
>Cancels some of the best looking manga whilst keeping shit like Whirlwind Girl Shimakaze going
>Lottery system, never upgrades the servers
Cheap fucking jewish cunts
Read about how she really sunk. It was not as pathetic as in anime.
And the real problem here is the complete lack of any real story or tension. We still don't know what the enemy want or even what exactly they do.
Notice how the ship girls are the aggressors both here and in ep1.
People over react anyway since it's popular and there's so much haters on the franchise.
Kisaragi death really is fucking small deal because she's a nobody in the game in fact her death in the anime seems to make her popular now. If anything its a sign that more ships going to be sunk.
Also the once bitching are faggots that thinks this will be typical sol when you have them battling from the get go at the first episode.
Like I said they should of went with Arpeggio of Blue Steel route.
I can just imagine what went through Kadokawa management's heads.
>Ship girls? Okay, whatever. Low budget, chump change.
>1 million users? For these fucking game mechanics? Leech off of it as much as we can with proprietary goods and maybe books, but popularity can drop-off at any point, so refrain from major investments.
>2 million? Doujins everywhere? Well in that case, guess we could go mixed media. Just no big money. Anywhere as it's not DEEN.
You guys do know that kancolle flopping still put them #3 behind Im@s and Basugay right?
As far as Kadokawa is concerned, they got what they wanted. Free publicity from a cheap ass half ass 3DCG production
>she's a nobody in the game
You saying expedition sluts are nobodies?
Since the game has zero definite backstory, the only thing we can do is speculate. Chances are that some doujin already covered what the story in the anime will pursue.
Actually, Kadokawa only prohibits the usage of game files like sprites and BGM, which can only be acquired through ripping the client, and official media. Fan compositions based on the franchise are still allowed.
Naval warfare is by nature boring to watch if you don't add intense tactical insight like in shows such as Arpeggio or LoGH.
I mean if you want to go realistic you just throw torpedoes and fighters at each other from distance. What's the excitement in watching that? Last Exile can be fun because they focus on the fighters too. Here the fighters are just fairies.
Seriously; does it not piss anyone else off?
The use of the catchphrases in the first episode was fucking cringeworthy, it's like the writer decided to take the day off and so they copy pasted lines in. The only catchphrase that's even relevant half the time is the horrorshow.
>YFW she starts a bit of the old Ultraviolence.
Look at the cast. They got all the top seiyu in japan for a goddamn fan project with no pay.
This is how big Touhou is.
>10: 艦隊これくしょん -艦これ- 76隻目 [転載禁止]©2ch.net (949)
It's certainly going to be the most talked about show this year, at any rate.
>Why did Diomedia not just completely disregard the source material to blatantly copy a completely different show?
If I was to make a Kancolle doujin. I'd totally have a destroyer girl ramming the fuck out of JFK's PT boat, then JFK using his secret President voodoo on her vagina, then having sweet sweet island sex.
then he gets shot in the head, because how else would you end it?
Are you living under a fucking rock?
>Episode 4: 私たちの出番ネ！ Follow me!
Can Kongou save the anime
Thank you for delivering according to our expectations. Based Diomedea
>Naval warfare is by nature boring to watch
A very big YES
>skating is the most potentially awesome of the anime
Not this anime though, did you even try to watch it? It looks absolutely retarded. LIke watching 4 year olds learning to skate by sliding their forward foot forward.
I was so disappointed.
With Jane's gone (Fleet command 2 never) and Battlestation series went down the toilet, its either full on simulation like Command or nothing for new releases
Pacific Storm is ok, that is buggy as hell too.
