Is Akagi alive yet?
That's what I meant. If it wasn't for episode 3 we wouldn't have any of the hamfisted drama in this episode, it would have just been pure fun.
And it was, mostly. I'm sure people will find ways to be utterly asspained about it though.
All my favorite ships were in this episode
You'll notice that it was started when the episode was airing.
reading the posts as it went on was the best.
But it was only for a second.
This episode is everything about failure
>pointless meme span
>plot almost non-existent
>each scenes connected almost as awkward as Kamui's face
Anyone in charge of making this must be put on a god damn court marshal
>this episode will also have Naka-chan!
>1 minute of screentime
Damn the Kongou-class to hell. The Sendais are far more fun to watch.
Yeah, kinda feels off when the rest of the base kinda forget Kisaragi exists at all.
Either that or the seniors are accustomed to losing people in war occasionally, Akagi's speech seems to indicate that.
She learned from the best
The last 5 minutes felt out of place, but it's exactly what you said. It shouldn't really stop everyone else from doing their own thing just because Kisaragi is gone but as a viewer, it still feels weird.
>Welcome to the Word of Yuri Boat Animu u guyz.
That's right and someone's death doesn't stop the entire world indeed. The problem with this anime is that everything, even right things, are executed so poorly that it's nothing but cringe-worthy experience to watch them. Fucked up pacing, fanfic-tier meme span(hell, even most of those memes are fan made after all)...things just don't make sense in this anime. And to see so many people unironically defending this episode is just beyond me.
>make it serious
>also make it SOL
Damn it Diomedia
This is the fucking definition of forced drama. It exists only for itself. There's really no other reason. I mean, you make 18 minutes of stoner genki sol then shoehorn in 2 minutes of drama. Why?
Does anyone give a fuck about Kisaragi's sink?
Why make it so fucking happy?Especially when one of the fleet members died?
Do destroyers have no rights?

Because people wanted ＫＯＮＧＯＵ ＤＥＳＳ and they got it.
Words of praise are demanded.
>not just ignoring that one samefag
He stated his opinion there is no need to discuss anything anymore about what people are supposed to think.
>Why make it so fucking happy?Especially when one of the fleet members died?
Life goes on maybe? You'll appreciate the value of not being down in the dumps all the time when you've actually lost someone important sometime.
>It's called being able to have fun
Having fun while ignoring all those stupidity is stupidity itself. And
>alot of the shit is legit canon
Just because so many fanboys believe it to be canon doesn't make it so
Seriously, for what fucking purpose did they add this in for? It was like the worst kind of fan material all rolled up together, sure the girls in the game had some unique personalities but this is beyond stupid.
Kongou is beyond stupid and Genki.
>What? An episode about the Kongou sisters being wacky? What the fuck???
Episode wasn't without good qualities, but the flow of the entire episode was fucking terrible, what with juggling between comical and serious and dropping both.
Can't wait for the Kaga and Zuikaku antics next week.
It's disappointing that Haruna wasn't the only one self-conscious about it like in other official works, instead she's just a daijoubu Hiei. But the rest were true to form.
>Kongou episode followed by a Kaga episode
Looks like they know who the most popular girls are.
Why so many seem to be satisfied for last 4 weeks? Am I the only one who've expected something better than this out of Kancolle? Are you guys REALLY entertained by this? Absolutely no agony about all the wasted potentials?
Fubuki didn't actually know Kisaragi that much and she didn't pretend it didn't happen, in fact it was Mutsuki that was looking away. Fubuki moved on, she understands it's a war and shit happens. Kongous should also be used to knowing that some girls will sink and they can't do anything about it so why be depressed when they can enjoy their time?
That might've made sense if Fubuki was the flagship.
Don't you mean "the WARSHIP the shrine of the D"
If you don't like it you're free to go.
>Am I the only one who've expected something better than this out of Kancolle?
Yes, yes you are. Everyone here (except you it seems) had zero expectations for the anime. It's your own fault.
I believe that anon are going to be just as cold after having heard about the death of their own fellow countrymen. Sure, you will say "condolences," but you've other things to do such as ship posting.
My enjoyment is proportional to screen time my favorites girl get, it's not a rocket science.
>All that Kongou singing and dancing
Bet this is what we're gonna see next episode.
No but there'll be plenty next episode.
Naganami or Amatsukaze will show up eventually, r-right?
There seems to be a huge amount of Kancolle experts who claimed to have great understanding of which is canon and fanon crawled out of the wood this time.
I've always thought their characters were rather mild if I were to follow their in-game quotes, but the anime somehow decided to crank it up to a level I am not even sure if it's fanservice or retarded.
That's good then since she's the yuri queen of Kancolle, and since there's no males at all in this anime there would be no reason why she wouldn't be.
Did you know that there are people systematically posting Kaga in all threads in a flawed attempt to raise her popularity amongst fans? Remember to never be easily taken by Kaga posters and always critically analyse which are your favorite kanmusus.
Go back to the expedition fleet, Tenryuu.
Have you played the game? It has no plot, everything is magic and doesn't get explained at all, for all we know Kisaragi could show up again... maybe. They're not following the historical "plot" but some ships are expected to sink given that the Teitoku is the only teitoku of this world and shit happens. The mood change or no change at all is probably due to the nature of the game, the girls have no lines for when some of their comrades sink they just keep being themselves even if you feel like shit for sinking one.
There is no admiral, there is literally no admiral. They might talk about there being an admiral, but there is literally no admiral in this anime. They might as well all be suffering from the same delusion that someone is running that naval base and that the chair behind the desk isn't empty.
Kaga has the most results on danbooru
Which is another way of saying that Kaga is loved by talented artists who devote time and care to pictures of her. While waifubaits like Kongo just has shitty drawings of her spammed by 13 year olds on pixiv
You can't beat facts
Well, Parasyte alone isn't going to be able to last me all day.
She's on break.. I think
(looks at image related)
Proud crane makes me want to bully
Definitely will be watching till the end and since I watch all those crazy niconico MAD of the anime I'm gonna get spoiled anyway.
I think this episode really shows what the show should have been; A sketch show with the Characters doing their thing and little to no connecting tissue between the sketches besides the characters.
You can't have a serious story with Zuikaku around.
Can somebody please explain to me the significance of the Kongou singing and Naka-chan in this episode?
What the fuck happened to him?
situation, what situation do you speak of?
>she'll never be the main character of the anime adaption
>the anime will never be a serious adaption of KanColle
>the Taihou-class will never be animated
It's a character driven show, not a plot driven show, just enjoy the wacky ride, let's not pretend Kancolle is some sort of masterpiece, don't lie to yourself thinking this whole thing had a plot prepared, those who picked the game didn't do it thinking "wow this thing has some serious plot", the game doesn't have anything besides collecting your favorite girls and submitting yourself to the wonders of RNG, c'mon, we're all here expecting to see how much screen time our favorite ship gets and that's all.
I don't even play the game and I'm having a great time watching this.
Do you even grief, anon? Deaths are always "pointless", especially war deaths. Kisaragi lives on in the hearts of her friends, and that's all there really is to it. Mutsuki and Fubuki learned something about loss and dealing with it, and had a good cry in the sunset.
Look, I can understand if Kisaragi was your shipfu and you're mad she got fridged, or if you're mad that they're not recreating World War 2, or even if you're mad that the show is as much an insane juxtaposition of absurd antics with grim war drama, and is as such disrespectful of history (which is a valid argument), but "pointless" is absolutely the wrong complaint to level at Kisaragi's passing, at least at this point.
If by the end of it all then it looks like Mutsuki has learned or gained nothing from her sister's death, or if there's been no other plot or character-related development, then yeah, you can call it cheap and underutilized. But not right now.
>out of love for the franchise
You're using the word love too loosely. I don't have any love for this franchise, I'm just watching this for the cute girls, and I'm sure almost of all of /a/'s watchers are the same.
What I'm saying was nobody in Arpeggio threads bitched about the beach episode when they probably should have, but somehow people are bitching about comedy scenes in Kancolle when they really shouldn't be.
Wasn't it a bell pepper?
You'd have known they didn't if you watched the episode.
When are they going to be done with those gratuitous in-game lines?
When there is no more ＢＵＲＮＩＮＧ ＬＯＶＥ to be had.
You clearly can't unto Kongou dess.
Because the beach scene (it wasn't even a whole episode, you know) was pointless but still within the boundary of the main plot, while the Kancolle anime doesn't even have such thing as a main plot. The staff is absolutely lost and have no idea of what they're doing. This is why they complain; it's not about beach, onsen, or etc
You know what this thread needs?
More Kongou dess.
>Akagi spends the whole episode at the cafeteria, eating an all you can buffett while everyone watches Kaga and Turkey fight
>Next episode, Fubuki is sent on an expedition to resupply the base
>while the Kancolle anime doesn't even have such thing as a main plot.
As it should be.
This episode is the first step in getting the anime back on track (which is to say, off track).
I want a Shimakaze.
Damn, I'm ashamed of myself
My Shipfu will never get an official or even unofficial "official" looking Kantai version.
See, nerds like to use that word a lot when they actually mean it's not what they expected. That's not inconsistent direction, that's an episode that didn't go the way you wanted it to. There's a difference.
Kancolle's tone "inconsistency" is baked into the nature of the fucking product. Frankly it would be MORE inconsistent direction if the entire episode had dropped the whole base into mourning and crying over Kisaragi's loss. At that point the first 2-1/2 eps would be revealed as a bait-and-switch by using a SoL tone to shift to a grimdark war story.
Antics juxtaposed with another character in mourning? That's not inconsistent. Do you cry and stop your life when a student at your school or a coworker who might at best be a distant acquaintance dies? Of course not. You shake your head, say some condolences, and move on.
Chances are the Kongous and Shimakaze didn't know Kisaragi that well either. Plus, they're pretty self-absorbed, so maybe they were being rude.
The characters to whom Kisaragi mattered most - Fubuki and Mutsuki, remained in mourning and continued to be affected by her death long after the fact. Fubuki had to participate in the antics because she was being dragged along, but the entire way through you can she's not entirely into it, and during the episode her brush with death just drives Kisaragi's absence home harder, so instead of trying to convince Mutsuki that Kisaragi's gone they just share a hug and cry together.
Kancolle's no masterpiece, but you jerks aren't giving it enough credit. Aside from episode 3, which didn't have enough antics to balance out the drama, the show has been consistent where it counts.
>need to make retard kids to act as rensouhou-chans
I just started out in Kancolle, what should I be pouring my development material into right now? I have almost enough heavy cruisers to fill out fleet, should I be doing development to start getting them secondary guns?
What do they think of the frequent use of these shitposting images?
To think that there used to be a time when these weren't used for shitposting.
Threadly reminder that Hotel is kill.
That was before they were made, right?
it's really like the episode was based on the Kongou manga.
>Fubuki will get raped and become pregnant, then when the child is born she will say "Kisaragi... This child's name is Kisaragi". Then she'll smile and it'll be a feel good end.
Fatalpulse will save the anime.
>Ship + Waifu
>It means their Ship Wives
>I remember they did this with assault rifles as well (raifus)
>They truly live in the future...
>Gaijins are hard to understand, it can't be helped...
>says a lot about how shit this anime is
Bullshit. You could objectivly make an 10/10 touhou anime and they would hate it to death. Kancolle and Touhou are only that popular because everyone can make up their own canon which - kind of - gets destroyed if something "offical" like an anime appears.
In reality what kancolle boils down to is a kind of shitty browser game.
Fuck you. I was going to post this.
You need to be quicker on the shitposting draw.
Just like the game and the entire mecha musmume and moe anthropomorphization concept.
>Since the Kagerou class don't get to be in the anime
>because everyone can make up their own canon which - kind of - gets destroyed if something "offical" like an anime appears
You're delusional if you think that's why anyone dislikes the anime. There are no problems with the good official manga, and it doesn't seem like anyone is taking the anime seriously enough to consider it canon. Being a shitty plotless browser game doesn't stop you from being able to make good episodes out of it. The bloated non-h doujinshi market should prove that.
>the amount of bongou posting this week
>2ch, Futaba, Twitter, Niconico
>nearly every anime-related places are now overwhelmed by negative opinion against the anime
I like how this is going. Stupid Diomedia deserves this for ruining Kancolle
>disjointed story line
>comedy and drama doing their own thing with no attempts at mixing them
>no room time-wise for developing emotional attachments to the characters in the show
>overly generous use of in-game lines
Despite it all, here I am thinking the next episode might be better.
>I-401 loses her legs because of a torpedoe or sea mine
>starts using fins to swim
I want to see it happening.
