'Only the sunken can escape my anchor'
Reminder that if we ever get to Ironbottom Sound, Ikazuchi will sink and Poi will go out in a blaze of glory.
The lone gaijin living the dream
What word do you use to describe a timesink game where you complete missions and generate resources in real time then?
Because that's basically every popular mobile game and the core concept of kancolle is largely the same.
God damn, if we get to that Battleship Hime I'll cheer when she instantly Taiha half the fleet with one shot. Then I'll cheer even more when Kitakami opens a hole into her at night.
it literally is just a timesink
It also doesn't have fun gameplay or interesting characters, therefore it has none of the staying power that 2hu has. Say goodbye to ships soon everyone.
Can't wait for the MVP of the fleet to do her thing instead of a literally whobuki who sucked the producers dick to get screen time.
Android devices strain the servers. Windows tablets like the surface are fine, but phones and other android devices like smart phones are not even if you're playing it on a browser.
Something about having to constantly re-download the data, isn't it? It puts too much of a load on the servers.
Fairy magic. They're fairies I ain't gotta explain shit. Triple 41cm turret fairies are best fairies.
Or, you know, the Japanese aren't so inflexible that they insist on using Japanese name format for western names.
You said that last year.
Anyway, Strike Bitches is still alive up to this year. Boatsluts isn't dying anytime soon.
First ep was pretty good, almost makes me want to play the game again until
Oh well, hopefully diomedea keeps the quality up.
Why did Hibiki harasho for no reason?
I do not understand.
>Triple 41cm turret fairies are best fairies.
To show secondaries she's a commie.
After this episode, I find it funny how the fandom portrays her to be as dumb as a dog.
She's not dumb as a dog, but she's cute like one. Poinu is best inu.
How does it make you feel that abyss only exist to be blown apart by shipgirls.
Go away fatty
This isn't something I'd expect to go wrong in 3D.
The usual stuff or something new?
I wonder if they'll change the 4th fleet's composition, they can't stay a scouting fleet forever.
>shitty placebo formation
Diomedea, I am disappoint.
Everyone should wage war against the Koreans.
There should be an episode centered to 2ndCarDiv.
From left to right: Hiryuu, Souryuu, Kaga, Akagi.
I think I'm going to pick up PP again because of the narrator.
Crunchyroll subs is quite off the mark, but I doubt Commie would do justice.
Akagi and Kaga were the main two aircraft carriers. Souryuu and Hiryuu were in the background (pic related).
why haven't you made an OC to be molested by her senpai yet?
>I wonder if they'll change the 4th fleet's composition, they can't stay a scouting fleet forever.
Maybe it was because it was an event map. Now it's back to expeds and orel all day every day.
I'm sure every primary self-inserts as an OC in some form or another.
And Murasa is already in the game
but not the anime ;_;
The webgame is pretty terrible.
It's not even like Touhou where even without knowing jap, you can at least enjoy actually playing the game.
KanColle is basically like WoW's garrison mission with waifu, if you don't wanna learn japo or read translations on another website, there is no playing "playing" the game.
It's not that we don't like her it's just that there are cuter starters and she's not even the cutest Fubuki, Isonami is.
Ooi is crazy and bisexual, KTKM doesn't give a fuck.
Their weapons are housed underwater, and have no rust, and can fire immediately after being submerged for X amount of time.
Magical fairies are amazing.
Hawks > Cranes > Dragons > Shit > 1st Division
Wait a year and they'll be in the game. At least Exterprise-chan. And she will be E-7 reward.
Much as I don't care for giant girls, if someone saw this picture I could forgive them for thinking that a few of the girls are giant.
I hope they show what happen during expedition other than escorting supply ships. Would be funny if they really do find buckets or coin boxes floating around in the ocean.
To launch your girls into battle. Now stop adding and changing equipments and girls during mission, it must take forever to set everything up, the fairies will go on strike at this rate.
Shirayuki's also kind of plain.
Isonami, Miyuki and Hatsuyuki all have obvious, clear personalities, and Murakumo is completely different.
That one's definitely staire, but there's tons of shitty or deviantart-tier OC on pixiv too (See: half-dragon lesbian admiral on danbooru)
>Didn't the nip only have 6?
No, they had more. It's just that the 1st, 2nd, and 5th CarDiv are the most known because they're the ones who carried out the attack on Pear Harbor.
Ryujou > all the other shitty oppai carriers
Flat deck is love.
Flat deck is life.
I love RJ's twin flight decks!
How come I fucking love Maya but find Choukai so plain? Even though they have the same outfits, for some reason she looks pretty meh.
It's probably the hair
Friendly reminder that this is what the real Shimakaze is like and she won't be oversexualized in the anime
The angle in her art is incredibly awkward. Parsley's gotten much better, I hope he redraws both Maya and choukai.
Never. Most of these creeps can't even talk properly.
Nobody care about her anymore
In term of slut porn, she is firmly in the top10.
The one that has a huge popularity is the britbong king kong. She is barely relevant right now as the lead kongou class.
1. Prinz 34
2. Kaga 26
3. Suzuya 23
4. Atago 23
5. Amatsukaze 19
6. Akatsuki 16
7. Nagato 16
8. Bismarck 16
9. Shimakaze 16
10. Haruna 15
There's Shinano that will never appear.
>the fandom would go nuts
With joy. We all enjoy sinking abyss, right?
I'd like to see you speak the language of the natives from a foreign country without any form of education on it, poi.
I want to poi her pois so hard.
I don't fucking need to because my country can win wars.
I gave her presents for Christmas, a bunch of upgraded Zuiuns.
What are you talking about everyone loves zuiuns
I triple dog dare you to swim out into the middle of this and splash around like a wounded animal.
No, leave your kanmusu pillow on the shoreline.
There isn't anything wrong with Zuiuns.
Zuiuns > Reppus
Zuiuns are good for growing lolis.
Well that blew over rather quickly. What were we so worried about again?
Urakaze is doing things to me again!
Holy shit. The shit posting started so fast.
>not being able to read moon
The two K bitches.
Kongou and Kaga
who managed to get the same number as her plane capacity/spoiler]
A lot of Mecha Musume could just be dumped into Kancolle super easy. I've seen some good USS ships about. Even a few HMS ships
Relax anon, that pic was from long before Kancolle.
As much as I hate to admit it, that one thread where we went absolutely max autism with the shitposting genuinely scared away most newcomers.
Good job, shitposters.
Your opinion is extremely important to us.
I'm not the only one who shitposts with these pictures you know.
>Who even cares when Abyss equipment is best anyways
This is actually untrue. The Reppuu outperform anything abyss we've seen in-game thus far. Their planes are overall inferior, their main guns are inferior, their torpedos close to equal.
That said, their radar and AA guns much better.
>but Japan would hate it.
You overestimate the nationalism of military Otaku, and so did Kadokawa.
Why else do you think they so awkwardly buffed Bismark from her previously uitopiggugohomu abysmal stats twice before just giving her an unprecedented Kai Drei?
Oh, I see.
D68 Vampire, the escort for Prince of Wales and Repulse, not P72. I want to see her run around the two while trying to keep all carriers away.
u wot m8
You at least have to acknowledge Taranto, cover of Operation Husky and contributions to Task Force 57 in the Pacific. She could take a hell of a beating for a carrier.
I didn't really like the anime and have no interest in the game but i came here to say that Inazuma , Ikazuchi and Amatsukaze are real fucking cute.
That's 2chan's thing. We need to use something better.
>Those are gameplay mechanics.
Gameplay mechanics that are the closest thing to canon.
>Surely you don't believe a pre-supersonic fighter plane is superior to a futuristic jet alien fighter do you?
I believe unintelligent monsters can be outmaneuvered by intelligent fairies.
Would be cool to see in real life though, though I'd feel really bad for anyone having to serve onboard one, the heating must be kept to a minimum or something.
Well to be fair, Vampire was born a Royal Navy ship then transfer over to Australian Navy.
>making it a carrier
>Not making it into a military base with engine
Just imagine it, a base that can ram into enemy ships and win.
Since I have no idea how serious you are anon I'll just stare you down till I'm sure.
Us shitposters managed to shitpost so much that we got some fag to make a meta thread.
I actually am serious. North American education barely focused on the battles in WWII. I had to dig through old promotional videos to experience what it was like back then.
>I stopped playing when I sank my married ship.
And anyone would be amazed if they see a giant ice/pykrete carrier floating toward t hem.
When did you sink your married girl, kuso? If it's recently then you probably don't need to keep playing since there's only the older girls.
What about press gang? Or does that count as part of rum?
>I stopped playing when I sank my married ship
I just watched it. I'm pleased with the quality of the anime.
I wonder what the plot will be, and how much screen time will be allocated to each of the girls.
The only reason those aren't canon is because Disney explicitly said they are not.
>Kyle Katarn can be equipped with more then a dozen weapons in Jedi Knight.
Sometimes you have to pack heavy.
Your language is too nice for this place.
but if I must
For just beginners and/or for reference anything from Osprey Publishing and the New Vanguard series.
For HMS Warspite - HMS Warspite by S.W.Roskill
For British in the late Pacific - Task Force 57 by Peter C Smith
For British Battleships there is a massive book by R A Burt
those are a few
Oh and if anyone says Taihou is just as tough as Illustrious they are a faggot and don't know shit
Started playing the game yesterday. I'm digging the anime from what I saw. The launching sequence and the battle itself was really cool and just fun to watch.
Now I'm just fighting the urge to start picking up the Nendoroids. I love Akagi and Shimakaze's designs too much.
Did someone say carnival
Because I definitely heard someone say carnival
Disney has nothing to do with comparing lore vs game play mechanics which are not humanely possible for a character to run around with a dozen different pistol, rifle, or heavy weapon ordnance.
Gameplay mechanics do not equate to lore.
>Gameplay mechanics do not equate to lore.
They are the closest approximations, especially when the game is the only established canon, and are the only references points we have thus far as to their performance. And they consist of much better substantiation than all the absolutely nothing you've presented arguing the contrary.
The real one or the fans bullshit version
man jap WWII military designations were confusin as hell, Type ##. How do you even differentiate between guns, planes, and tanks?
Are you fucking kidding me?
At least they're up to date and there's one for every girl.
Oh I can field this one! It's the the Number in type XX comes from the last two digits of the Japanese imperial calendar.
" Japanese tanks were designated to what year they came from in the Japanese imperial calendar using the last two digits of the year. So Type 97 comes from the Imperial Year 2597. The tank was acquired in Georgian calender year 1937, so 1937 years from 660 BC (When Japan was apparently founded) = Imperial year 2597. Use the last two digits for your tank and you have the Type 97."
TTK hadn't put a lot of research into the Japanese tree yet.
Suzuya has not appeared in the anime yet.
Both the LNs and Manga are often contradictory--the size of enemies (the destroyers, for example) vary, the nature of the girls (whether they are created or spawn, as in one LN) as does (if all official manga count) the size of the ships themselves. The only reliable medium is the game (and its ambiguous wording) upon which these at-times contradictory mediums are based.
Yep. And you still have provided no proof whatsoever of the superiority of Abyssal fighters. It certainly was not mentioned in any of the official manga, and if there was something in the LN I'd like to see it.
