>introducing girls before they even get official Fumikane character designs in the game
We'd just end up with what happened to Fubuki when she got remodeled, the wrong equipment in the wrong remodel.
You know, Strike Witches also had 'Murricans et al. If their purpose was to "take back the sea," and technically "the sea" belongs to EVERYBODY; then shouldn't EVERYBODY (not just the Japanese) get involved?
Or is Japan filled with racist bigots after all?
Goddammit this anime was shit.
>Entire game is about building a shipgirl harem
>Okay, let's completely fucking cut out the admiral entirely
>And add obnoxious yurishit pandering
Fuck this, even the self-insert shit's getting invaded by yuri? Goddammit.
What's your fucking point? This isn't Strike Witches, there's no reason the show should be obligated to do what Strike Witches did.
Might as well ask why EVERY anime doesn't have fucking Americans in it.
>Fuck this, even the self-insert shit's getting invaded by yuri? Goddammit.
Remember Koihime Musou anime where they cut out that game schoolboy guy out completely from it?
And it got 3 seasons and sold pretty nciely for that.
You can't blame that anime studio in kancolle case didn't want to make definitive Admiral cause if part of fandom would like him/her then the rest would hate him/her for sure, making him/her just a shadow means that YOU as viewer can self insert as Admiral in anime like you do in game.
That was actually nicely thought done in favour of gamefags.
Cancel it and tell everyone to focus on a different project.
Having a team working on S2 of Scat: The Animation is just offensive to everyone involved.
pic related was the banner when I entered this thread.
>level 150 Fusou
Now here's a man of absolutely good taste.
I thought 'Midway Hime is Akagi' theory is retarded enough. How did the anime manage to top that? Is it the writer's idea or Tanaka's idea?
literally love live
Honestly, I like their designs so much more than the Boatsluts.
Easily one of my favorite things of this franchise.
I want to impregnate evil Ikazuchi
Henderson-chan and Midway-hime's VA in the anime is apparently Yoshiko Sakakibara, who also narrated in the very first episode.
She's known for a deep voice, so it's puzzling why they thought she'd be a good fit for the Abyssals.
Yeah, sorry. That's what I meant, they gave them a personality. So why can't this show? Is it just afraid to put a face/label on that position and cross streams with the fanbase?
And for that matter, what does the fanbase, Japan as well, say about the whole Admiral bit?
Wtf was that. The CGI already looked bad and then they didn't even take the time to show a little bit of effort and slightly pose the characters.
Did they just think no one would notice?
On top of the horrible final episode.
No new 4koma chapter this week.
Does the 4koma author have a twitter account? What does he think of the anime?
You can only recruit the shipgirls, and sadly there's no sign of some kind of expansion/spin off in where you can finally use the abyssal girls in your fleet even though they're pretty popular and better waifu material than some kanmusu. Have been wishing for something like it for a long time.
I want to embarrass Houshou by forcing her to wear skimpy clothing.
>a manga artist with a full job has more resources than your average player
She's only carrying the AA FD, she doesn't have the rest of her kai 2 equipment.
I haven't even played the game, and the first thing I thought was that I'd like to have them as recruitable members of your party. Especially that Harbor Princess, really like her design.
>You're now a member of the production committe and have to report;
>>new character designer
>to can save the Kancolle S2
Create an engaging story arc that will get more people watching it and concentrating on one group of characters only while the rest be cameos
Somewhat like Rage of Bahamut's approach
Let's get crazy.
Her cameo in the background of ep 2 got removed.
Referencing the anime already? I love how fast they are with these things once an episode airs.
>She wasn't even in the anime
I avoided that mine after the PVs came out for it.
> Also, how exactly are you going to sortie an installation type that doesn't ever leave her island base?
The game would have to alter a bit, but hey. Always good to have key defensive positions when it's a 'land war' so to speak. Then again, that'd move the game more towards strategy/gstg
The admiral in the game is pretty much a non-entity. Fanworks (and by extension, fans) are split between works where there is an admiral and ones where the admiral plays little to no role at all. There's no need to shit on half the fanbase just to appease you.
They could easily include an admiral that mattered if they were intending to tell a serious story but if it's literally just going to be a self-insert for harem comedy shenanigans there's no point.
I saw a picture of Hibiki with a pot on her head less then an hour after episode 6 aired.
It's fine as long as they didn't remove her from the first episode.
Give them one instead of just showing them as monsters and they're ready
Guess that seeing their favorite girls only getting killed and almost never getting any official love can lead them to be extremely disappointed
Wasn't the 4koma started right around the time the Kancolle game was started? He might even have a Shinden Kai if he has been playing for so long.
>Making Houshou cry
Fucking Kuso TTK
I find them better than the shipgirls even without official personality, it's not like 80% of the shipgirls are more than just some moe stereotype and a couple of running jokes.
To be fair, that artist could have been nearly done with that image and just put a pot on her head.
Are you the same autist who thinks yuri is popular in Japan and that yuri had taken over anime completely?
Yuri fans mean nothing in Japan, the biggest fanbase which is catered for and who spend the most on merchandise and BD and every related thing are waifuyfag otaku who don't want to see girl being romantically involved with a guy or a girl in explict way.
Yurifags are beggars who eat leftovers from waifufags table cause all-girl yuri subtext anime used to see girls in some quasi romantic situation to cater to bigger number of waifufags with some variety has nothign to do with explict yuri where girls kiss and make out with each other.
Waifufags are ok with yuri subtext and that's from where yurifags profit getting some shows.
Plus you have to be an idiot to ignore massive number of harem anime, VN, eroge and LN with male protag and a bunch of girls fawning over him, that's the biggest fanbase catered in Japan.
>No overly sloppy faces
>All of DesDiv6 looks like they should
Wait a minute. Has Yadokari actually gotten better?
Something about the shading makes her plastic.
I wanna touch a Kaga!
One of the first few chapters were about the first spring event, so yeah it's totally possible that he has Shinden Kai.
She's a pure maiden.
Despite having a lewd, vulgar, succubine body.
Hold on, why did you show me Drew?
There is nothing wrong with combining SoL/Action if done right. A handful of anime has done it well in the past and besides, there's no point in them being WARships when they cant go to war.
All the game art is like this, it's nothing unique to Yadokari.
Why is she carrying a hand grenade?
>Based on fucking what? The way they tell you to fuck off and TAIHA your ships?
Oh my fucking God! Why are the enemies being aggressive to us, why aren't they showing their charming personalities?
Have the Sabagebu/Yuruyuri writer handle it. His eps were already among the most enjoyable of the series and his work turning the lackluster Sabagebu manga into one of the best anime of 2014 was a nice surprise.
>what is shitposting for the sake of shitposting?
Yeah it was discussed for a bit in one of the threads yesterday
If you remember in the final episode Yamato mentions how she's glad she can finally fight alongside everyone else and she gets the spotlight (kind of). Then suddenly Nagato appears and steals her thunder. Kind of reflective of both the game and history. Yamato is easily upstaged by Nagato, or hell, even the Kongou's. Well there is a second season now, even though most of the staff is probably incompetent or pants on head retarded they'll probably capitalize on some sort of Nagato-Yamato rivalry.
Well, they must have some reason for doing those acts. Maybe things would get pretty interesting if they would expand and give more details on that.
I'm not actually that interested in getting Abyssal tea time but it would be nice if it turned out there was something more to the plot than "one day fleet girls and abyssals appeared, and the abyssals hate us."
>If anything it was at least consistent
No, which is why I used "highlights": the anime is annoying in that it actually was decent in places, which means it could not be written off entirely. You have to sit through rubbish to get scenes like the curry competition or the Poi Ni reveal.
>even though most of the staff is probably incompetent or pants on head retarded they'll probably capitalize on some sort of Nagato-Yamato rivalry.
You say that like it's good. The last thing I want from this show is more terrible drama, especially between two characters I like.
If only they'd play that rivalry out 4-koma style.
Only if you promise to marry her beforehand
and then skip out afterward. You monster.
I think the only episodes that weren't panned in some way were 1, 4, 6, and 7.
See, the 4koma is great because it's funny all the time instead of just in bursts. And somehow it's easier to take seriously than the anime.
Rejected concept art for the anime before it got delayed, way back when.
>it's funny all the time
War isn't fun.
>War isn't fun.
If the Kancolle anime treated the war with anything remotely approaching the seriousness of an actual war I wouldn't be complaining. It's more like a comedy where occasionally people decide to play at war.
Are you joking? The admiral was literally a faceless self-insert character. They even refused to show him so you could seamlessly insert your own image and/or yurifags could insert a female.
I was so terribly done and obvious I almost thought they were mocking self-insert haremshit. Then I realized they were completely serious.
Bucky Kai 2 was a running gag in the 4koma but they managed to make 2 episodes long drama soap about her Kai in the anime.
Now imagine how ugly the rivalry between Nagato and Yamato if this staff get their hands on it.
I want transparencies.
Transparencies of the 4koma. Or requests.
Stop reminding me of the 4koma, I keep refreshing it.
How about Naka chang torpedo squad pose?
If only her kai ni looked this good... She looks like an alien now.
>All this abyssalfag vs boatfucker shitstorm
Let's be honest, the abyssal girls don't really have much personality, in part thanks to the fact that they only have combat voiced lines compared to the hundreds of lines per shipgirls. But the personality of the shipgirls is in most cases bi-dimensional at best, but their origin and past is much more interesting because they're based on more specific tragedies and history than the abyssals. Both groups become much more interesting when you add fan speculation and all the fanon shit.
Design wise, the amount of shipgirls that look almost identical to other anime girls is pretty high and the abyssals tend to look more unique and in some cases exotic. You won't find girls who look like Wo or Seaport Princess everywhere.
Overall i love the kanmusu that I don't find generic a bit more, but fleshing out more the abyssals can only lead to good things and more waifus.
It's just wasted potential to look at something like Hoppou and Seaport Princess and don't expand more on what they really are or what they really desire. Even with the simple info that we already have about the abyssals you can see a lot of potential for some tragic backstories,motivations and all that shit.
Tl;dr Based beaver >>> you're waifu
What went right in the episode? Aside from Taihou's short scene, which we all liked.
Back to the aliens she goes.
Was that really needed?
I want to smash Zuihou's planes and call her flat.
>War isn't fun.
Civilians and hippies are so funny
What Diomedea did to Midway Hime was a crime. But not because it was brutal or gory, but because they only did it to her and not also adding Yorktown in there to do it to her also. Fuck them, Yorktown deserved to be shot like that too.
But anon, nobody really gives a fuck whether they'd officially highlight Abyssals or not.
Half of them are just shit posts for the sake of argument.
Unlike Henderson and Midway who you probably never see again. Yorktown is waiting for you in the next event.
I like how the Tas were smart enough to not even show up in this anime.
More Shimakaze fan service.
And can't have the Americans in Kantai Collection. We'd end up sinking all the Japanese ships before cruising the USS Missouri into port.
Also the Iowa class would just be stupid overpowered.
>Americans in Kantai Collection
Already is one.
Play the game and you'll see why.
>USS Prinz Eugen
>Isn't a USN ship
You have an American ship, now quit your bitching and be happy with her.
She isn't a real one. She was taken from the Kriegsmarine, and the head of Kancolle already said actual American ships will be in the game.
Chances are it'll likely be Yorktown, Enterprise, Iowa, and South Dakota and/or Fletcher class DDs.
>The United States did not particularly want the cruiser
>Eleven of her twelve boilers failed after the Germans departed
>The ship was then allocated to the fleet of target ships for Operation Crossroads in Bikini Atoll
Now I'm wondering if Nagato and Prinz could be nuke friends.
>She only became an American after WWII. Please, learn some goddamn history.
If you think he doesn't know that you're even dumber than he is.
So a ship commissioned in the USN doesn't count because you say so?
Why would I say that? They were never commissioned in the USN.
Hibiki didn't become Russian until after WW2 either.
Probably not that OP given game balance. Bismarck doesn't even really stand out when you consider her 4th form/3rd remodeling compared to the Kongous or even Nagato Kai.
Because she isn't a warship that served in the US Navy, she was nuke test cannon fodder, and the head of Kancolle doesn't even consider her an American ship but rather a Kriegsmarine one since her entire war service is for Germany?
>Now I'm wondering if Nagato and Prinz could be nuke friends.
Read her lines, she knows Nagato and gets along with her but neither remembers why they know each other. She also knows Sakawa and refers to her as "that cute light cruiser"
I liked how the final episode confirmed that Mutsu is a lesbian.
There are so many lines in Kancolle I've never heard just because I only keep a few secretaries, RIP.
Oh wow, her sink line is fucking amazing. (Prinz sank from Operation Crossroads, five months after the fact because nobody wanted to repair her irradiated steel.)
Perfect for her having sex with Akagi.
>no service record for the USN besides that
They don't care, she isn't representing Americans in the game, and she's still a Kriegsmarine ship lore wise when she was introduced.
Are you mentally retarded?
We see a Wo class killed at the very start of the anime in episode 1 by Haruna and Kirishima. Another Wo dies later on in the series to represent Lexington while Flagship Kai Wo is implied to be Kisargi (as retarded as it is) to represent Yorktown.
It's pretty simple; if she speaks no American she is no American.
Who knows why? She was still a part of the USN, and is thus an American ship alongside being a German ship. I guess Kadokawa just wanted to characterize her more by the German service then the American one, since there was not too much that happened there.
Read the 4koma.
While it is true that Prinz Eugen was an USN ship, up to Prinz Eugen Kai she's still in her German form. Wait for Zwei or Mk. III.
Attack on Pearl was commanded from Nagato's bridge.
Some people would say it was revenge, but honestly the US has never been too sentimental about its ships. Many successful and distinguished warships have been used for target practice. The Nagato was considered an expendable capital ship to test the nuke on.
If it was for revenge, then having the Pearl survivor USS Pennsylvania nuked alongside the Nagato should have been more outrageous.
There is nothing that happens, she's a broken ship and gets nuked as Bikini Atoll with Nagato. She has no actual service record with the USN.
She is not American, she has no real ties to the USN besides a temporary commissioning. Only a retard would argue this. You are fucking stupid.
I need a gif of Ooi-chi, raping that poor destroyer.
S2 add should be about wunderbar German adventures.
Well, she already was blushing at her in the intro for the anime.
>Perfect for her having sex with the Admiral.
Holy shit this is hilarious.
>We see a Wo class killed at the very start of the anime in episode 1 by Haruna and Kirishima. Another Wo dies later on in the series to represent Lexington while Flagship Kai Wo is implied to be Kisargi (as retarded as it is) to represent Yorktown.
Can't even remember that shit to be honest. I could have swear that outside of the Opening, episode 7 was Wo's first time appearing in the anime
Well she probably has sex with her femtoku too.
Standard Wo was killed in first episode, Flagship II Wo aka "Yellow eyes" turned into Flagship Kai Wo after her injuries. Two different Wo's, both implied to represent Yorktown and Lexington.
without war we would still living in caves
She is not a US ship, she is a Kriegsmarine ship in the game. Its that simple, stop spinning your head cannon to try and hamfist an autistic belief she represents US ships in the game.
She is not an American built ship, she has no real service record for the USN, and the game totally ignores her final fate to use her during the interwar years in WWII.
She is a German naval ship.
She is not American.
Can you tell me what missions a broken Prinz Eugen performed the US Navy before getting nuked?
Its just a retard insisting Eugen represents the US even though Kadokawa has gone on record saying they will add American ships to the game proper.
But if you put a $500 LS engine into a Lotus that makes the fastest car in the world American.
I know you are, I'm simply stating from pure aesthetics, Flag I and Flag II are identical.
Kadokawa is using the Eugen whose 99.999% of her entire career as a warship was serving the nation that built her throughout the entirety of the war. Which is right and proper.
Eugen is a broken, malfunctioning ship that is complete disarray when the US is given her and she is subsequently does nothing but get nuked. There is no reason for her to be categorized as an American ship.
Halfu. Sisters are pure Japanese.
Marrying an American for a green card is the goal of many in poorer countries. It also gives hope to the most desperate among the lonely US males.
Its makes her best ship is what it does.
She didn't have much of a history with USN to base anything on. Her most interesting systems were removed for examination, then failing boilers made her a good choice as a target ship.
Hibiki/Vernyj was deployed as an actual warship by USSR for a few years, even if it was an uneventful stint.
