The big question is. will Fubuki save the day in the next episode?
Also Shimakaze acting cute as usual.
>No one discussing how cute she is while she sleeps.
DD6 still being best at cute
There's only one kanmusu who can clear the skies and save the day. Then we'll get a surprise second cours starring Ducky and 5cardiv and zee Germans and absolutely no Shibafu ships and it will be amazing.
At this point, I'm freakin glad they didn't adapt Nazi and co. AL adventure. They might fuck it up.
Not as cute as this.
Does this look like Ducky to you? Taihou will save the day with her Reppuu.
>sortie an extremely slow fleet
>dispatch another fleet from a different base to rendezvous with it and guide it to a rally point
>a rally point deep within enemy territory with a constant threat of detection by the enemy's main force
>send your main force to stand by in that rally point, vulnerably exposed to an enemy force too large for it to confront on its own
>leave your main force to wait indefinitely while 2 fleets from separate origin points attempt to find one another completely blind in stormy weather and total radio silence
Did nobody read this plan and find it absolutely retarded?
Why didn't they just rally in safe territory where the issue of being detected and forced into an untenable fight while waiting for rendezvous wouldn't be a constant threat?
Anybody else imagine squeaky cat sounds when this scene?
>no Shibafu ships
If only we could have gotten real the deal beauty of the Pacific Midway Hime and and not shitty ugly Henderson-chan.
You mean drink her, right?
That's not Midway Hime.
Midway is a much classier lady and I wish they actually used her.
Fubuki will die defending Akagi and be reunited with TTK in the afterlife.
Not unless Akagi's fat ass is so big that when it sank it became its own island. You probably think Abyssal Yorktown is Abyssal Kaga too.
Airfield is okay too, I was just really hoping for Midway.
I'm just glad we got more abyssals.
Those fucking eyes are the cutest thing ever.
Don't bully, she's also a qt but don't treat Henderson-chan poorly just because of the incompetence of this adaptation.
I want Midway hime to be
>Don't use American names, there is a reason they were changed.
Anon, there's no need to skirt around the issue. For all intents and purposes, they represent American ships/installations.
If Jewdokawa want more money, they should introduce Hoppo-chang.
I thought the abyassals were Allied ships and bases and not dead KanColles. I thought we debunked this long time ago.
How is this still a question being asked. Kancolle=cliché as fuck moe where the power of friendship will beat out all logic. Of course Fubuki will save the day, and of course the director doesn't have the balls to try and get some real drama in this show
Spoiler and sage because shit from last thread.
>I maintain that Arpeggio was popular enough on its own merits to get most of its viewership
Oh, I agree with that. But in my opinion that isn't exclusive with the opinion that most of people connected Arpeggio anime to KanColle in their minds, even if they weren't KanColle players - at that time KanColle was already a big thing, and rapidly growing.
The first half of today's episode was really fucking boring.
Why would we stop when even the Japanese sailors of the time called her a Hotel?
They're both now.
She's a girl that people like. She has pretty good stats and is the only carrier that can launch planes when damaged, along with a nice eager to please personality and a great design by Fumikane. But she had an embarrassingly short career that went out with one big gassy bang, so I don't know what she could do in this anime.
Srsly tho, will the abyssals ever say anything or do I gotta keep pretending angry muppet sounds?
Replace Fubuki with Shimakaze.
Show goes from a 2/10 to a 9/10.
Fair enough points even if I personally didn't because I read the manga.
Now go back to posting shipgirls.
Shimakaze cares too much about speed to be a good MC. Make Satsuki the MC.
>It's called foreshadowing, you nitwit.
I know that. And I would understand if she were some ship of great importance. But relatively speaking, her legacy isn't much to be proud of.
Your resolve is weak, anon. Also bauxite may be the hardest resource to farm, but it's also the hardest resource to use up. It is not that hard to get bauxite for Taihou attempts.
Nice history touch in new episode about her catapult.
Japans one and only Armoured Carrier.
Sure the design had issues but it was completely uncharted territory at that time. Only the Royal Navy had equivalents, that preformed admirably and well during the war but didnt have a long shelf life at all afterwards, again to design flaws.
Everyone's forgotten about Kisaragi. Time for her to make a return in the AL/MI counterattack.
Asside from the Yamatos, she was probably the most advanced ship built for the IJN.
And having a poor legacy/service record didnt ever hamper the popularity of Yamato and Musashi.
My favorite parts are the history touches, cute girls are nice but as a history major cute girls + history is awesome.
Nah, it was because the structural strength of the carriers were compromised by damage they took during the war and the bongs didn't have the resources to make proper repairs.
Guess RJ needs to save the next episode if Bucky can't.
>It made it seem like she betrayed the shipgirls and gave the abyssals a way to decode their messages.
It was made clear in one of the early episodes that the Abyssals had cracked their codes anyway.
> and the bongs didn't have the resources to make proper repairs.
The damage was irreversible, bro. It would be more expensive to repair than it would have been to build a whole new one.
>Japans one and only Armoured Carrier.
Just because Shinano's career was even more pathetic than Taihou's doesn't mean she didn't float for a while.
My favorite one at least.
Actually never got into Hetalia.
EPISODE TIER LIST
Episode 11: Things finally start to move. Go get'em.
Epsiode 6: SoL, but actually funny this time.
Episode 3: KISARAGI PLS (the low atmosphere in the last five minutes of the show saves this one)
Episode 1: A decent enough introduction.
Episode 7: Kinda average.
Episode 4: Not that it wasn't funny, but read the mood, you morons. I bet they get it from Kongou.
Episode 5: Heartwarming but kinda tacky.
Episode 8: Cheese and sugar. This is a battlefield, you know? Orders should mean something.
Episode 9: Obligatory game reference. At least kuso teitoku died, so something good came out of it.
Episode 2: Typical shonen MC training. Really boring.
Episode 10: Fubuki, you're a retard. Rest of the fleet, you're retarded for letting her. Also training.
More like she's busy playing with Hoppo
I'm gonna be disappointed if the next episode is going to be the predictable "Fubuki saves the day"-bullshit. I feel that it's going to be that way though since the historical route would be a boring/sad way to end the story since Hiryuu has received literally no character development and her gallant last stand would be the only glorious thing about the whole operation. I'll just have to chew up the inevitable shit shounen ending and ask for seconds.
Wo was so right it's shameful to think about how we all doubted her.
>And still the second most advanced Navy in the world.
Advanced, yes. But in terms of overall capability, the RN lags behind the Russian Navy.
>And despite cuts, the QE carriers are still going to be fucking awesome.
But imagine how much better they would have been with catapults and the F-35C instead of a ramp and the F-35B.
That was fine. What's dumb is the base throwing a party like nothing of note occurred. Have you ever had a classmate die? The teacher makes a solemn announcement and the mood goes down for a day even if everybody gets over it eventually.
They aren't people they are kanmusu, it makes sense that only a sister ship fleet girl would be more effected by the death of one of her own destroyer siblings then the rest of the fleet would be.
>What's dumb is the base throwing a party like nothing of note occurred.
Of course something of note occurred - Wake Island was a success. Kisaragi, on the other hand, is the definition of "nothing of note".
Because America is the only one whose most likely place's of deployment are all across giant motherfucking oceans.
Two at that.
Also the ridiculous amount of money we spend on all of it.
Last time I checked it was more than the next ten countries combined.
