My father was a sailor.

He used to take me on board the ships he was working on whenever they were in port in our city, I kinda miss that.

It's a shitty job in some aspects, but it could be nice for someone with no friends or family like an average anon.

Though on the other hand no privacy would suck and I imagine the majority of the worlds' ships still have no internet for the private crew use.

Active Raid managed to look consistent (didn't reach the QUALITY of Twintail) so there's a chance the animation quality may not drop that much.
>>
>>139873578
>Just looks like Aniplex trying to cash in on the success of GuP and KanColle.
Yes, but it's actually good. I imagine it'll be better than both of those TV anime.
>>
>>139873578
100% chance you're right, but does that really matter? What's important is if it's actually a good show. It felt like there's more effort put into it than a blatant cash in, and Arpeggio and KanColle didn't really tackle life on a ship which is where this seems to be going.
>>
>>139873578

No. What we don't know is whether it will work or not.
>>
>>139873578
I don't see this coming even close to GuP but you literally can't go wrong with the cute girls + military concept.
>>
>>139873823
I liked GuP but didn't care much for KanColle. Which one is this closer to?

You say that as if that's bad.

Well, having actually finished the episode, it's a better anime than all of the stuff people are saying it's ripping off.

But I'm not sure it has better girls than any of them, and that's a bit of a problem.

This.

The girls are pretty weak in design and character. The first half of the episode was boring but I think it's going to be fun now they're at sea if they don't go 'training exercise' and they're actually on the run.
>>
The premise is interesting and it's nice to see some actual stakes this time but I'll be cautiously optimistic.

This boat could sink very fast if they fuck it up.
>>
>>139872744
Why the fuck did I just spend 20 minutes looking at that instead of watching the show?
>>
I was tricked, I wanted to see Cute girls in a Maritime Highschool, not cute girls being pirates
>>
The pace is not very good, and the OST is forgettable(at least for now).
That said, it's still decent first episode, will keep watching.
>>
>>139874079
I think it's going to be pretty stormy at first as the show charts its path but in the end it should be smooth sailing and certainly be a standout of the season.
>>
>>139873889
This one has Aniplex bucks, and the other has LN Publisher bucks, Active Raid had neither of those things. I think another reason Active Raid worked out is because IMS wasn't doing the action, which is also the case here.
>>
>>139874061
Main girl seems like a cool captain though.

I don't see how you can say they're weak in design, I love GuP but I definitely think the girls have better, or at least more varied character designs here. Character wise it's way too early to tell, but the main ones got enough development for a first episode.

>>139874508
If their training ammo was replaced with live torpedoes to frame them, their communications are probably sabotaged, too. Even if it isn't, they fucked up by not being the first ones to radio back. She shouldn't have ordered a counter-attack before letting anyone know they were under attack, but the attackers were probably banking on them assuming it was a training exercise and calling in for backup instead of solving it on their own would be a failure.

>>139874650
I guess they're similar, but GuP was a mostly straightforward sports show in format, while this looks to be doing something completely different.

It will. I mean, if it wasn't going to do it then why would they hide the actual premise of the show?

It's all an elaborate training excercise, isn't it? I can't even really get invested in the drama because I know this is what it's going to turn out to be. They were late for what was likely a briefing and now they are 'it' for a war game scenario. It'll probably resolve itself around episode 3-4 and then the rest of the show will be standard bullshit.

Ok, this episode managed to instill fear in me. Not only fear of what might happen to them, but also fear that it might just not live up to expectations and go to shit.
>>
>>139875598
That would be suicide for the show as they'd know people would instantly lose interest.

What other shows have done a major cop-out like that? None that turned out well.
>>
>>139875481
Plus I have to think if that was a live torpedo, someone would have said "Oh shit, that was a live one" or something to that effect.
>>
>>139875556
They didn't hide that there would be mutiny. They hid that there would be ships. In a show called Highscool Fleet. It'd be like if Girls und Panzer tried to hide that there would be tanks. I have no idea what they were trying to accomplish, but I don't think it confirms there'll be a grimdark twist.

That doesn't really make sense. There'd be no reason to show her telling HQ that they'd mutined (and HQ being shocked), nor would there be live weapons.

Why would they keep live torpedoes on a training ship with a bunch of amateurs in the first place?

When GuP panned out at the end of the first episode and showed the city was floating on an aircraft carrier, everyone immediately started speculating about how it was post apocalyptic and they'd go to actual war at some point. Even if they do go on the run, that doesn't mean anyone's going to die. It could happen, but don't act like its guaranteed. SnW didn't kill anyone off either.

Only around vital spaces. Also, the Harukaze was sinked in the 1947 (the Musashi in the 1944), so this anime is set in ____.

Instead of being a generic highschool SoL, it takes place on a ship. Nobody knew about that part because they were so tight lipped. Who knows why they went to such lengths to hide the entire premise, but that doesn't really change anything. It's not like the updated pictures show anyone suffering.

I don't know about that. Didn't the original synopsis already establish the fact that a large part of Japan was already reclaimed by the sea? It even mentioned some potential conflict.
>>
>>139877118
It makes literally 0 sense that they would go to such lengths to cover up something so irrelevant. Like, would it become that much more popular? Are they just banking on baiting with the whole military gimmick ala GuP and Kancolle with this?

Or is it going to be something bigger? Should find out in a few episodes more. I wouldn't put it past them to change the advertisements more with each episode.

That would actually make a lot of sense.
They continually change the websites and adverts as more gets revealed.

I especially don't get why they went out of the way to hide it when at the same time it seemed like they're main advertising gimmick before hand was essentially, "Hey guys look, it's got a bunch of GuP staff!"

It's going to be one of those hard work versus talent pairs. Moeka studies hard and is great at everything, but as a captain Akeno wins. I bet she was (or will be) attacked as well, but lost because she didn't act decisively.

That's what makes me thinking it's more. Getting so shady just over hiding it's set on boats and not at sea? First episode already has a bit of drama going to set things up. It's not like they'd just blow their load now and show girls suffering in advertisements before anything actually happens in the show.

Hence I think it's going to be a gradual thing. They're clearly putting effort into the advert side of things with this shit so I doubt it's half-assed. Has to be more to this.

I doubt it. The conflict seems to involve something entirely different. If Moeko does end up fighting Akeno, it won't be because she wants to. On the other hand, if she's attacked and loses, she will die or get captured. Either way, the theme of "hard work vs talent" won't be brought up.

It describes her personality. That doesn't mean it will be relevant as a theme.

If this show had a sport-like setup (like gup) and Moeka was a rival character, I could see what you propose happening. But that's not the case. The story here involves some sort of conspiracy as far as I can see. Shoehorning a subplot of "hard work vs talent" into this would be pretty nonsensical.

Unless Moeka is somehow the mastermind here, but I don't see it, at all.

A theme is something you have to develop over time. Moeka isn't even a main character who will appear often enough to make any personality trait of hers into a theme. Besides, the focus of the show is definitely on the whatever conspiracy the main characters got involved with, not on a competition between Moeka and Akeno.

She looks like a stereotypical gaijin, though. Maybe the mutineers are forced to join up with Murricans somehow.
>>
Is this show trying to be serious or not? I can't tell. The girls act like moeshits but then something serious happens out of nowhere but they continue to act like moeshits. I'm confused.
>>
>>139878751
OP quite hints at Mocha having a strong role. Childhood friends don't just disappear from a plot when you lay it on so thick. I do think the conspiracy will be the main plot but also that she'll have some involvement.

As much effort as with Madoka? (I wasn't here when it first aired, but I have heard about how they tried to hide Urobutcher's involvement and they made the cutesy OP just to cover things up.)

It does feel a bit conflicting but they might be able to pull off a similar mix as Mouretsu Pirates did. Will have to see a few more episodes to get an idea of what it'll be.

They did a poor job of that, because everybody knew. And they said to keep watching until episode 3 because shit would go down and the tone of the show would change. But they did try to hide the OP and ED and some marketing stuff until then.
>>

She'll probably appear again at the end. Maybe even as an enemy. I doubt she'll get more focus than that.

They didn't hide Urobuchi's involvement, as far as I remember. His name was in the CMs and everything. They didn't play up his edgy track record, though.

Kind of like how a lot of people knew with this show cause of the pre-air and just the direction the advertising started to take a few weeks back. It's basically like playing a hidden card that everybody pretty much suspected was there so I'm not really sure what effect it has if any. It's kind of hard to do wrong using this formula right now so I just don't get why they went to so much trouble to try to hide it and pretend it was something else other than Aniplex advertising ideas. They really seem to love this whole bait and switch thing ever since Madoka.
>>
>>139880950
We'll see. For now I still think she'll only appear again at the end.
>>
One of the students on the ship is a princess, and the instructor had an interest in making sure the princess will be out of commission. The rest of the show will be an odyssey with the training ship fleeing from the authorities, while at the same time trying to prove their innocence and uncovering the conspiracy the instructor is part of.
>>
>>139881058
She's the main character's childhood friend with a prologue sequence about the two of them, the captain of the fleet's flagship (and only non-Harekaze character to get a slot on the character chart), and she's the only other ship not to reach the island. Why be delusional about this?

The best friend of the main character knows secrets about the grand conspiracy, and that's a reason for her NOT be part of the plot?

I always found cute girls doing things that are usually done by men tanks/ships really interesting.

You mean if the moe blobs become embroiled in a desperate fight to survive it will be AOTS.

The secret can't be revealed until the end. That's why she most likely won't appear until then (provided she really knows something).

I don't see this grabbing the AOTS spot for me, but I like it so far.
It's actually a pretty good season, I think. Of course it's too early to make a final judgement.

How exactly do you propose the mystery develop if nobody who has anything to do with it is allowed to be part of the story? The point is that it makes sense at the end, not that it only ever does anything at the end. It's like expecting Homura not to be part of Madoka's story until the finale.

Why on earth would you want to hide a mystery? If you hide a mystery until it's solved, then there IS no mystery, just a finale with no foreshadowing. If it's a mystery, then she has to be around, doing mysterious things.

Seriously, why are you going to this length in deluding yourself that the only other ship on the cast list won't be important?

What they called "Accounting Department " is the comfiest shit you can do on a ship. It's literally lazing for the entire day. Especially when crew is so tiny. Weird there is no camp boss though. I guess they don't have a cantina.

The mystery will get forshadowed just fine. That's probably why the blond girl joins their crew. She'll probably know just enough to get things rolling. But if Moka knows everything, they can't let her show up now. Besides, the fact that Moka is missing may be used as a motivation factor to make Akeno defect and go look for her. Which in turn might give credibility to the teacher's accusation of mutiny.
>>
>>139883461

>>139883400
It's almost as if not all ships and all explosives are the same.

It hit the ship and caused it to begin to sink. That's not what training ammunition does. Furthermore, the girls knew they were being attacked with live ammunition because it exploded AT ALL, which their torpedo clearly also did.

>>139883466
Might, might, might. You're reaching massive distances to maintain an incredibly flimsy (and bizarre) premise, and even then it doesn't make sense. Again, this is like saying Homura can't be involved in Madoka's story because she knows what's going on.
>>
