A better question would be "Is the preview out yet?" if you're talking about visuals...

As for the body of text however... well, I don't think those who can read it notice any mention of it... or did you guys?

Hakugei isn't mentioned anywhere, or at least the name isn't in that chunk of text. My Japanese isn't good enough to read the whole thing so someone else might need to chime in...

You oversimplyfy it a bit too much, still they could have gotten the budget for her Hull by not adding unecessary scenes or refraining from having rings around the mental models every time they control their ship.
Or the additional GC in the ED, or GC to such an extend that you can actually see it when Kita and Kongou move their heads.
400 and 402 don't really do anything important either, in they need Yamato to make 402's role make sense.

I dont mind if we see Yamato at the end of anime for cameo. but there is little point for her to show up, say hi, gone, and never seen again. Kougou is effectively her replacement since she is the highest ranking member of fog that really active for early part of manga

No RRW made correct point by that simplyfication. Yamato doesn't play important role in arcs that anime Will cover and by removing Kotone there is very little gap to fill and accidentaly they handled hide such gaps maybe not well but not badly either.

Lack of Yamato make sense and thus is acceptable. Honestly if all changes that was done worked st least on this level I would be much more enthusiastic about it.

The show will be fairly successful even if the manga was a bit niche - it is afterall riding on the tidal wave that is kancolle - just look at the merchandising frenzy right now. IMO the source material itself is just above average - interest mostly sustained by the 'untold mysteries' + the pretty character designs rather than any clever/meaningful story telling as such.

I agree Yamato would simply distract from the main story that can be covered in 1 cour. Even in the manga Yamato isn't pivotal other than being one of these afore mentioned mystery elements. Nothing but loose treads if introduced.

re Preview images:

Yeah, definitely part of the Yokosuka battle. No signs of Hakugei in the preview pictures, or more importantly, the people who're supposed to be on the Hakugei, so I dunno. Maruri. ;_;

RRW and Tenzen: Wrong, Yamato plays a subtle role in the beginning of the series. Chekhov's level in fact, set up way in advance.

Yep, around twenty chapters on Yamato two appearences and one revelation that isn't affect "main plot" (actualy is main plot on it's own) for yet once as much.

Don't get me wrong, I understand how much of importance she is, but it would be difficult compress into 12 episodes. Arpeggio would have to be adapted at least into two courses to fully flesh her out. Though it would be indeed rewarding and made me happy.

I swear, these puns write themselves sometimes with regards to both Kantai Collection and Arpeggio. Incidentally, the endcard for this episode was drawn by the person who did the art for the Kongou sisters (kore wa FINISH, BURNING LOOOOOVE!).

I am not saying she is not important in overall. but consider the limit of anime we have. her appearance will have negligible effect on story

if they dare to remove certain submarine from this episode. pretty sure they will remove that from anime story

It's the best new anime so far. I can't wait to see more next week.

Seeing from the ED, so far only hyuuga who have not make an appearance (probably she will in the iwo jima scene). Also, seeing the anime will only run for 12 episode, I think it is sensible to leave out things that affects the story in the long run (such as Yamato). Therefore it's safe to assume that the battle of yokosuka will only be 1 against 2, and the story will further differently.

Thanks to the anime adaptation that I finally got my hands on the manga (which is unheard of before for me), but at the same time it's also a bit disappointing to learn that it won't run as long as the manga.

But since it's already running, might as well enjoy the not so 3D-ish CGI animation

As a pretty hardcore manga follower, I find it awkward that Kongo has to say the lines of Yamato..
It's like a supply teacher had just repeated word by word something nice that your actual teacher taught you the day before.
To me, Kongo just doesn’t have the same level of prestige as Yamato

So, Does it matter if there is no Yamato in these episodes?
Yes, I think so.
Takao had to defect completely on her own, now she's just a stalker with a crush
400 and 402 became stoic voice recorders of Nothingness
One who had to work the hardest is still our great Kongo-sama. Now she had to hold periodic tea conferences with members who can't even respect her. I will cry if she had to fight all on her own later on.

When hope is lost, I'll just go look for our silly friend Maya.
Maya: Gwwahhh..why me! ><''
You are the best Maya~

To be completely honest Takao IS stalker with crush and submarine-tans was always creepy dolls (aside of omakes) and we knew for while about not having Yamato.

And lastly for me Kongou-sama has as much of prestige as Yamato, but problem is it's not same kind of prestige, but geting merged with Yamato took away that anyway.

I don't think I would liked Takao as much if she's is/just/100%/completely a stalker with a crush. She's much more than that IMO.

400 and 402 are creep dolls, but NOT THIS CREEPY. These are like CREEPY UNFEELING PARENTS of 401....

By no means I wanted to undermine our great Kongo-sama, I think she deserves much more than just regurgitating lines of another character. Just makes me feel awful

Yamato not being in is kinda ironic considering what she said in the Omake btw lol.
Either way I guess the main reason for her not being in is the amount of time and budget her GC model would cost which is why it irritates me so much.
As I already stated earlier, there are tons of meathods as to how to get the budget and time for that simply by removing stuff that shouldn't be there either way.
Its not just her though, a certain submarine probably suffers the same fate, along with its crew.
If you leave that submarine or Yamato away you can as well leave the 400 and 402 out. (I guess the reason why they stayed in was that they are pretty much recycled Iona models).
I also agree that Kongo would have deserved more than a few recycled lines, but yeah I saw disaster approaching the moment I heard its the same team as Danganronpa's...
