Since Kisaragi was gone 'historically'. Who will be the next?
There's two ways this can go:
1) They sink the entire cast as per history.
2) They don't sink any other ships.
Either way, you're going to piss off a portion of the fanbase. Option #2 is the safer path though, since waifufags and yurifags make up the majority of potential sales.
I think it'd be possible for them to loosely follow history, without killing off every character that historically sinks.
I thought 5 was pretty good, 4 was okay, and 6 was boring.
The wacky antics in 4 were dull; the bickering and squabbling in 5 was mildly amusing; 6 had quite a few genuinely funny moments among the expected DesDiv6 moeblob.
Shimakase's glorious ass will save this thread!
>not liking ass
Dude you gay.
I want to give Kaga a tongue bath.
No. She's gay already.
I want to lick Yuubari's sweaty armpits.
Those hips man, those hips.
Do Nips really drink milk? I tought they have highest percentange of population of lactose intolerant
Why are you asking here? No one here buys anything
Can we not talk about death, this is an anime about cut girls having cute curry cook offs.
I want to lick a Melon too
Being lactose intolerant doesn't mean you can't drink milk, it means that it disagrees with you.
Most people eat food that disagrees with them and put up with the consequences, without trying to figure out what causes it, so long as it isn't too violent. It is just a part of life.
Zuihou's usable enough but I just wanted to post her. She needs a Kai 2
Every destroyer can be a superstar with the help of the army dogs
Maruyu, on a training exercise, was seeing off the Yamato on its way to battle off Okinawa.
On orders of the captain who 'wanted to do it once in his lifetime' the crew lined up on the deck and saluted the Yamato. Hundreds of sailors of the Yamato returned the salute and some of the crew started crying, touched that a 70,000 ton battleship would salute the crew of a 300 ton cargo submarine.
Then, as the ships passed each other, the wake of the Yamato almost capsized the Maruyu and drenched the crew in seawater
Can we have an event where Raiden becomes a ship girl cyborg to rescue the brains of kidnapped destroyers?
Don't all starters have 12 luck? (Except Buki kai 2)
5 Maruyu Kais will get her up to 20 luck, marry her for some additional luck, and make her flagship. That's viable for torpedo cut-ins
Agano class, a new design with higher displacement and armament should have better stats than old 20's CL design, they should have 4 slots as well since the design is based on Yuubari and not overweight.
>with higher displacement
They displace enough as it is.
Was there a reference to a Pommie destroyer squadron slaying the big bad wolf?
>TRY THE BATTLE OF MIDWAY! COULD'VE GONE KAI NI IF I HADN'T JOINED THE FLEET. I'M NOT ONE OF THOSE FIFTH DIVISION PANSIES. I COULD BREAK THE ADMIRAL IN HALF. WITH MY BARE TURRETS!
My mistake, mixed her up with Haguro.
MY FUCKING HEART
They don't give a shit. Most of them are already skeptical of the show and wouldn't be surprised by anything that happens. Besides, most really are only in it just to see their girls animated.
Grimdarkfags who know nothing about the franchise are going to be more salty about having their "expectations betrayed"
Those are fuel tanks, their range is 15k km compared to Sendai 9.3k.
Clearly 6k tons is not enough for 4 slots, we need more tonnage, bulges and burgers.
Also Yahagi doujins, inb4 read Houki doujins.
That was a good episode. I think I'll go fap to an Akatsuki doujin now.
Their love is stronger than that.
Sex every night.
Tennryu should be Raiden already. She already has the HF Blade and it would make her the ultimate babysitter
Just wait, the whale gonna get it up her blowhole without lube.
They went drunk and accidentally light a candle and set the sofa on fire with Mutsu around once.
Did she sang take me home country road?
Tenryuu is the most secondary ship in the franchise, which is probably why she hasn't appeared in the anime whatsoever.
>Completely useless ingame aside from as an expedition slut
>Fans latch onto her and makes her a fanon badass because muh katanah and mecha musume design.
Tenryuu should be characterized as a useless chuuni if anything.
Oh shit, run. Run while you still can.
That's Misery levels of love.
Tenryuu is characterised as chuuni.
Hell, the doujins ususally have her as a try hard who is actually pretty sweet and cute.
Sure, she is a huge secondary magnet but you cant deny that her fanart is lovely.
The whole Tenryuu kindergarten thing and "Are you scared yet" thing are riffed on pretty heavily
Oh god, Yubari is so cute.
Was it ever in doubt?
I said it before and I'll repeat it now because fuck it.
"Because those people either don't play the game and just see a lot of (admittedly rather good) fanart of her, or they get stockholm syndrome from hearing her expedition lines."
How wrong am I?
Is this really all you have in life, shitposting in Kancolle threads?
Accept only genuine Yuubari melons!
This kills the Akagi
Heh, so Haguro gets all the attention?
>Her stats being terrible always bugged me
Why? Tenryuu-class ships were just designed to be big DDs to lead DD Divisions, their stats being shit is fitting considering how useless they were.
What do you have against real love?
>Fans latch onto her and makes her a fanon badass because muh katanah and mecha musume design.
But apart from Hetza nobody makes her out to be a fanon badass. Most of the fanon pokes fun at her tough act.
What do you mean? Just be sure to squeeze them for authenticity.
>Give it a rest anon.
Are you implying that him and I are the same person?
Oh, that's sweet.
Would you watch late night anime with her?
But would you take responsibility?
But her breasts are small, thereby making her inferior.
How often do you think Samidare and Yuubari sleep together?
Why is Agano so soft and chubby?
Holy shit, heavy cruisers indeed.
Can you handle the wolf?
Is Ashigara a bladewolf?
I keep thinking I should have a powerful shipfu but the absolute genki of my DDs has made me love them more than any other class.
Let's talk about creepy ships. Why is Arashio so crazy?
Destroyers are plenty powerful
Each has different parts, you need to be specific such as
Fattest bulge : Maya for sure
I hope Poi shifts into Kai 2 spontaneously in the middle of a battle, with her not remembering anything about it afterward. "Poi?"
Everyone who saw it is freaked out.
Never. Melon has a bad influence on Samidare.
Let's talk about how perfect she is instead.
Haguro is cute.
They needed to give her a little something to make her memorable.
It didn't work.
You're right. Didn't pay attention to which side the funnel was on.
>Akagi that much larger than Nagato
I wonder stats CC Akagi would have had.
>10 × 16 in (406 mm) L/45 guns
Strong, as befitting a Hara ship
Super strong AA performance historically too
She did a lot for me too, and I was impressed by her RL record.
You don't molest your ships?
I will post this every day until you resupply Akagi
It should be about once a week for translations, however the old typesetter stopped working on it for some reason and the current one (Stalker) is typically too busy with other stuff to work on it.
As far as I know the real problem is typesetting; we get translation scripts and dumps posted here by some kind translator-anon(s) occasionally. Check the archives if you want to just read those.
Kay, thanks anons. Was just skimming through new releases on Batoto and came across 41 (I guess it was never uploaded there before?) and I noticed the last release was in December. Guess I'll just check back in the threads periodically then.
>Best Kongou was the only one to not get lines this episode
Also do Japs think that explaining jokes make the joke even more funny, or are they too dumb and need the jokes explained to them?
That and she was the last active Japanese capitol ship left. Everything else had been sunk or was trapped in harbor by lack of fuel and spare parts. It was the last chance for any RN surface unit to get a kill.
So the RN Indian Ocean Squadron sent two battle groups, one with Queen Elizabeth and 4 CVE and destroyers that was a slow group and had the additional job of beating up all the airfields so the Japanese air forces couldn't interfere with the search. And then a fast group that had the borrowed French Richileu and the CA Cumberland and the 4th Destroyer flotilla. The CO of that second force was so determined to engage Haguro in a surface action he took the risk of separating 4th Destroyer flotilla from Richileu and Cumberland to widen his search. Thus making the third task force. And so 4th Destroyer Flotilla wound up engaging Haguro on their own and sinking her.
>It didn't work.
Tell that to my dick. It didn't seem to get the message.
She wears it for her pilots
>they can't even accept that Kaga is Akagi's lover.
>Implying Teitoku is not male
>Implying Teitoku not create a harem of his shipwaifus.
Even if someone were to say that to your dick every day I don't think that would change anything.
Forgot pic because I'm retarded.
Anyway, you can update the pastebin. Just finished the Pleased to Meet You, My Sisters! one. I'll be posting it in a bit because some 3DPD problems came up.
She is easy to get anyway.
Try Zuikaku and Shoukaku.
Alright, I'll mark it, thanks for your owrk.
Hope whatever situation you have in real life works out.
I already got my Turkey.
I'll try for CritCrane and GasLeaks after the event is over.
My lord, blushing Kaga is a miracle of the oblast.
These newfags really need to learn how to blend in.
>He didn't serve in the IJN in WW2
Give them time. Sooner or later they'll learn.
Leaving the original filename helps people know where it came from.
>Not using reverse-image search
>Implying anons will search it from the filename.
They aren't smart enough for this.
Is not that hard. There's no way newfags would be retarded enough to not realize how to look for them, right?
Next episode would be battle.
Starring Zuikaku and Kaga.
Someone wants to see the Battle of Midway episode happen.
>go on danbooru
>check Pixiv source
>look through artist's gallery
I wouldn't be so sure.
They're not on booru.
He and you are me. Me and he are you. You and me are him. We're all one.
I don't really want to see the 1st and 2nd sinking, but I do want to see Houshou sending her daughters off with a smile and then fussing over her 5th daughters in the hospital as a way to relieve her anxiety over the battle her 1st and 2nd daughters are about to engage in.
I-IT'S NOT LIKE ACTUALLY MEAN IT OR ANYTHING
Is Shoukaku a super slut?
>Getting mai mic check obsessed shipfu's mic use wrong
No it's shimakaze
Question: Which Imperial Japanese ships actually survived the war? I'm not too good with WW2 history and Wikipedia wasn't much help.
Are there any good books on WW2's naval battles or the pacific war you guys would recommend?
I get this now, it hurts damn it!
I don't like this.
I was better off when I thought this series was political propaganda, at least then I didn't feel bad for what my ancestors did.
1. Too many to list here, if you count the ones not in the game(Mostly things like Matsu/Tachibana class, subs, and transports by the end I believe). You should check sites Combined Fleet for info about the real ships.
2. Stealing this from another poster " I would recomend the 15 vol series by Samuel Elliot Morris "History of US Naval Operations WWII"
failing that (as it is kinda rare-I am lucky enough to have a set) ANYTHING on naval warfare from Samuel Elliot Morris works just fine. but they can get kinda esoteric and deep.
for a good primer on WWII naval tactics you can always try any of the books that Bantamn publishing has done covering the pacific in WWII. They would be what i consider 'basic primers' on military history. should be able to find them still in any good book store. Nice thing is that they have always published them as paperbacks. Keeps the costs down. "
(Zuikaku's voice): "I hate 1st carrier Division".
I did some reading...a bit at least. I forget who specifically survived, but I pretty much know that most of the ones introduced were destroyed.
Kisaragi at Wake Island, Akagi and Kaga at Midway, Fubuki and Yuudachi at Guadalcanal, and Kongou...I forget where but historically she outlived most of them and was destroyed late in the war.
Nagato survived the war, but was taken out at Crossroads.
Hibiki survived until 1953 after being turned over to Russia.
You just have to know what to look for on Wikipedia.
