Yuudachi has the highest firepower so yeah but Shigure kind of fell behind recently against Hatsushimo and even Akizuki when Shigure's good points were her luck and her Anti-Air...

As far as those who appeared in the anime are concerned? Yes. Shimakaze have good evasion and her specs are good all-around. Fubuki was a plain common and starter ship until her second remodel.

Now back to the anime. I can understand why the director have chosen Fubuki as the main character. The poor girl is considered plain and unnoticeable by fans and non-fans mostly came for Shimakaze (and the Kongou sisters) anyway. However, her "plainess" allows her to play the straight man of the base in the "not-quite-absence" of the Admiral to deal with the antics of the quirkier Sendai sisters or Kongou sisters to name a few. It does help that her voice actress and the anime staff made her much cuter.

Actually, I think you are confusing the anime director with the game producer, Tanaka.

Myssa Rei
2015-02-01, 06:25
Specifically, one of the main points of the anime was "to increase Fubuki's appeal".

In this aspect, I think separating Fubuki from her sisters, and instead teaming her up with not only Destroyers from different classes (Mutsuki, Shiratsuyu), but having differing personalities helped quite a bit, as it gives her perceived generic-ness outlets to bounce off on. Never mind getting put under the command of the Sendai sisters...

Didn't Tanaka also take part in the anime also?

Klashikari
2015-02-01, 18:30
Only as an input. Tanaka isn't listed as part of the storyboard whatsoever, so I don't think he has any major involvement with the anime.

Why does Fubuki get a lot of attention from other ship girls as "special type destroyer"? I thought Akatsuki-class destroyers are more advance model based on Fubuki-class.

Is it because she is the first one of the advance series?

Sheba
2015-02-01, 20:12
Fubuki is the first "modern" destroyer.



The Fubuki class has been called "the world's first modern destroyer." The Fubuki class not only set a new standard for Japanese vessels, but for destroyers around the world. At a time when British and American destroyers had changed little from their un-turreted, single-gun mounts and light weaponry, the Japanese destroyers were bigger, more powerfully armed, and faster than any similar class of vessel in the other fleets. They remained formidable opponents to the end of World War II, despite being much older than many of their adversaries.

Kakurin
2015-02-01, 20:12
Correct. Fubuki was the first "tokugata". When she was commissioned she practically revolutionised the class of the destroyer. At that time she was the most powerful ship of her size in the world.

Thr Akatsuki girls will supposedly get a focus episode as well a little later on. They've been in all the episodes so far.

I can see they at least appearing a bit more in some episodes later on. But don't think they will have an episode focused on them like 4 about the Kongou sisters and 5, apparently, about the carriers.

Isn't there an all destroyer map in the game? I could see them try to make a justification to force two groups of destroyers out with no cruisers, carriers, or battleships present. Yuudachi, Fubuki and the Akatsuki would probaly make one group. Then the remaining Mutsuki-class for the second if they want to keep Mutsuki herself directly involved (or throw out death flags on her). Otherwise no second group, or have it be Shimakaze, Yuudachi and the Shiratsuyu-class destroyers they have around the base, while keeping Mutsuki with Fubuki and the Akatsuki-class.

3-2? It is possible but that depends on the story.

3-2 is based on Japanese redrawal from Kiska, so if, that is, IF it is included, it's quite possible that we would be looking at a rescue/relief mission of sorts =3

Marina2

Akatsuki sister got a focus shot in Opening like Kongo sisters ,so I think they will have thier own ep. later on.

They can make an ep. where they trick viewers to think that Akatsuki sister is doomed to sink for sure but Fubuki and Mutsuki (who are on the same group as them) manages to help them fight off the enemies and save all of them. (It will be good character development for both Fubuki and Mutsuki).

Bonus score if the boss come out and get defeated by the combination of cut-in attack from Akatsuki sister, Fubuki and Mutsuki in the night battle.

Maybe because there is nothing else to develop her character expect make her saying "Poi" every ep. Mutsuki is more interesting character at this point by the plot so she is still around.

IF anything, Yuudachi may upgrade herself into 'Demon of Solomon' in the last few eps. :heh:

you have green and white for mutsuki and kisaragi
you have dark blue for uzuki and yayoi
you have black for the others.
The color is the only variant thing though, plus they all have moon symbols somewhere on them with the exception being mutsuki and kisaragi.

Of interest is that the Mutsuki, Kisaragi, Yayoi, and Uzuki all share a single artist (and even Mutsuki and Kisaragi showed a bit of "first work syndrome" -- note the wonky proportions on Kisaragi); everyone else was done by the same artist as Hatsushimo and Wakaba.

It'd be neat IF Mutsuki get her own in the game. I mean, she is the only one in the main trio to not have one. Her Valentine art makes me confident that her artist can deliver in that department. But no headband please.

Considering that Fubuki didn't have one, it's quite possible that her K2, if any, would be without one too =3

After all, it'll look strange if she's the only one in the MC trio that has a headband :heh:

If they ever decide to do a web anime spinoff featuring them, it would be a runaway hit. Not detracting about the current series, but I find that there's just not enough space or time for everybody in this series.

I know, they should call the Spinoff "Kantai Collection Kai: Destroyer Days"

There's also another reason why the Mutsukis are like that.
Mutsukis were contracted out to civilian shipyards, and this is the case with most of the DDs. They differ in quality of finishing, sometimes in slight length variation and in the use of the paint formula. Sasebo and Kure for one don't have the same navy gray. This is even more pronounced with the Kagerous.

What did she cook for breakfast? Why the other meals are ok?

Either bad food or too much food that the admiral felt guilted to eating it all. Probably eggs.
