Unryuu is best Ryuu.

I'm holding out for her appearance in the anime, but I think it's likely to be a lost cause.

Do note that all carriers (fleet or light) who appeared are the archers.

Unryuu definitely not appearing in the anime sadly.

I am glad at least 1 CVL appeared in the anime... I thought there would be none...

Where is our RJ still :/

Doing Ryuujou might be too much for Mitsuki's voice actress in order. She is all the Mitsuki-class destroyers and Ryuujou.

You mean Mutsuki-class XD;

I don't mean RJ to actually have a voice, I at least want a cameo... Wish Zuihou also appeared but guess not... :(

RJ has too great a pressure for cameos imho =3. If she shows up, it would at least have to be one with a speaking role =3

It would be nice if taihou made an appearance in the show. The other 6 carriers are.
The lack of cvls kind of bother me though.

Also, I wonder when they will add shinano to the game.

Here is a question: Why does Ryuujou use Kansai-ben and tend to be used in tsukkomi?

Sheba
2015-02-04, 20:41
I guess we know why there is no RJ. The "Flightdeck Chest" jokes in anime are all for Zuikaku.

One of Ryuujou's captains was an Osaka native, apparently.

In Zuikaku's lines, she sends an attack squadron into the admiral's office after being groped multiple times, while her sister simply allows the admiral to play with her skirt while laughing nervously. Plus her marriage lines are totally dere.

So yes, Zuikaku IS tsundere. Besides her physical design says it all, twintails and a flight deck chest. :D

More Zuikaga cuteness. (https://danbooru.donmai.us/pools/9440)

she has a bump, the flight deck goes to ryuujou and zuihou still

So far the only carriers to show up are the ones that use bows and arrows. The others that use scroll decks and paper have not shown up yet. Might be a design choice to keep the audiance from asking even more questions.

Those are light carriers though

Ithekro

Shouhou-class uses a bow. As does Houshou, and Ryuuhou.

The scroll users are Ryuujou, Unryuu-class, and Hiyou-class.

Chitose-class is even more odd as the seem to use puppet airplanes.

Taihou uses a crossbow, so that might fit in as a more advanced carrier.

SaintessHeart

Note the difference in the bows. Akagi, Kaga, Shouhou and even Souryuu all use standard bows. But the cranes use Hankyu, a Japanese halfbow.

Chitose-class are Taoist sorcerers. They animate the paper planes. :p

- You know, I would think that having flat flight deck would give them more of an advantage in using a bow...:D

Ithekro
2015-02-21, 01:40
Which is why it is odd that Ryuujou doesn't have a bow.

Seriously speaking, one of the traits of of the mythical Amazon women as that they cut off one of their breasts in order to be able to fire a bow and arrow more quickly and smoothly. Granted, the way Japanese Archery (Kyuudo) is done is a bit different from the western method (The bow is normally raised above your head and brought down to aim, as opposed to being drawn straight at chest level in western archery), so it's probably much less of a concern.

All the carriers were drawn by different artists initially, right? Could just be the artist doing a different take with the Chitose-class.

Going through the artist list, I think this may really be a case of artist's preferences =3. Shibafu (1st & 2nd CarDiv, Houshou) goes for daikyu with noticeable joints while Konishi (5th CarDiv, Zuihou) drew shorter ones. All the onmyouji & puppeteers come from Kuurokuro and bob, whose only carrier was Shouhou, used an unconventional design for her bow =3

same goes for the unryuu class due to artist?

CQB also exist in the past - shortbows allow easy maneuver in a town or during a siegebreak; after scaling a ladder bows and arrows can provide fire support from high cover at the top of the wall on the poor buggers in the courtyard.

On horse archers it is a much better technique. It allows the horse archer to pick off mobile targets (NCOs, cavalry lancers, etc) where infantry would be pained to kill.

I noticed that all the carriers wear chest protectors. So they are safe from self-injury by their bowstrings.

There are some inconsistencies. (Different artists as usual?) Houshou, Shouhou, Hiryuu, and Souryuu use bows but don't have muneate.

Houshou, Hiryuu and Sounyuu are all drawn by the same designer as Akagi and Kaga (Shibafu). As for why they don't have chest protectors like Akagi and Kaga... *shrugs*

chest protectors cant contains dem chest, atleast for sounyuu XD

Top Sergeant

The important part is if they wear chest protection while using their bows. IIRC I've seen Akagi, Kaga, Zuikaku and Shoukaku using their bows, but not the others, and these four have all worn something to protect their breasts from the bowstring while shooting.

It's to symbolize that they are tough, it seems some cariers have insufficient protection... (no chestplates)
