This can be both the very happy ep. or the very sad ep. for me, depending on how it will turn out...

EDIT:


Cute girls do cute thing ep. We are on the SOL part in this ep. I love it!

PART A
-Nagato is ready to move on with the operation, although Mutsu believes she is pushing herself too much.

-Akatsuki sisters are having a bath. Akagi is also with them.
Akatsuki isn't really looking forwards to their expedition mission coming soon, while Hibiki notices flyer about a... curry competition. They are soon joined by Atago and Takao.

-At the Mamiya, Akatsuki wants to take part of this competition, after being inspired by Takao's words. Her sisters are fine with this, but Kongou actually shows up and declares she will take part of it as well, winnning the Admiral wit it. Ashigara barges in and believes Kongou has no chance against her own "wild" curry.

-Akatsuki sisters are about to cook, but they don't really know how to do that. Akatsuki and Ikazuchi argue each other about who is going to take the lead, while Inazuma and Hibiki are on the sidelines.

-Their curry isn't going anywhere, and there is no way for them to have stronger flames. Inazuma has an idea: they use a fast construction flamethrower, which actually burned the whole curry AND the recipient to ashes.

-Yuubari shows up and offers her service for a better pot.

-The akatsuki sisters have a talk with Mamiya for a recipe, and the latter believes there is a special kind of Bauxite that would turn any dish delicious. After hearing that, the four of them make a sortie.

END PART A

Eyecatch: Akatsuki, Inazuma, Ikazuchi, Hibiki by Yadokari

PART B:
-They are back, but they failed their expedition. Akatsuki is quite upset but Nagato arrives and cheer them up.

-Start of the competition, with Kirishima and Naka as the MC. Competitors are: Kongou/Hiei, Zuikaku/Shoukaku, Akagi/Kaga, Shimakaze, Ashigara/Haguro, Akatsuki/Hibiki/Ikazutchi/Inazuma.
The judge will be Nagato, with quite a serious look.
Meanwhile, Kitakami and Ooi are spending their time on the roof, not really interested by the curry competition.

-The akatsuki are trying to do some teamwork. Kongou is having some delusions and Hiei thinks the curry is bland and adds some... stuff. After tasting, both are out of competition.
Kaga is cooking by herself but Akagi is a glutton and eats whatever Kaga is preparing.

-Things look good with Shoukaku and Zuikaku. However, Zuikaku notices some stain on Shoukaku's skirt. Zuikaku is a bit concerned about it but tripped, ripping off Shoukaku's skirt from her, making her panic and flee left and right.

-Shimakaze is using... instant curry because it is "faster". And she eats it :heh:

-The akatsuki are doing fine. Ashigara boasts about her own curry while Haguro give them some samples, and while it is quite spicy but tasty as well.
Ashigara is pretty much fired up... or rather desperate for "certain" reasons.

-The 6div destroyers are on the verge of giving up, but Nagato knock them some sense, then soon after other Kanmusu are encouraging them.

-Nagato have a taste of Ashigara and the destroyers' curry. Winner: the destroyers'. In fact, it is revealed later that Nagato is VERY bad with spicy food, hence why she was on the edge :heh:



Completely fluffy and relaxing episode as expected.

Next week: More Zuikaku. "I hate the First Carrier Division" :heh:

This episode title was an intentional mislead with they even cutting one of the kanjis on the middle of the episode to show what it was really about. a breaker on the middle of the anime, a more serious one next?. And interesting to see they would do an whole episode where the POV wasn't centered on Fubuki. Although don't think there will be another episode like that.

Next episode more rivalries between the 1st and 5th carrier division? Although episode 5, despite the title didn't really focus on that but rather on the new fleet Fubuki is assigned as a whole. We will see what we will get.

Nagato is just a biased lolicon. If it is the shota-TTK Ashigara would have won.

I think she liked the Akatsuki's more because she is bad with spicy food and Ashigara's one was very spicy.

Curry Episode and not 4-2...? WHAT

I got scammed.

From Episode 5 Thread:

Next episode will probably be classroom antics more than anything else. I doubt there will even be a battle. They have 20 or so minutes to explore all aspects of these four destroyers (with probably pointing out what Hibiki's been doing the who time with her Russian words). Though given their prominated placement in the as escorts for the main battlegroups, they are probably rather experianced compared to Flagship Fubuki.

Unless they wanted to go into those four's tramas, which seems unlikely give that this is still Fukubi's show. Unless Fubuki's sister ship Miyuki comes up....Inazuma's trama.

I can't believe this guy was right LOL

Actually I agree with this. SKK is featured in quite a number of NTR, with Kisaragi catching up fast.

She is also a fan yuri favourite after AKKG and Kitaooi, probably surpassing Suzukuma. And you think a plain innocent dojikko like her would be so badly defiled in fanworks.

And why isn't the TTK served one of each of his kanmusu's cooking? Is he not appreciating them by not eating?

With the decision of having the admiral not appear, Nagato basically fills that role. There is so much they can do by showing the characters interacting with the admiral that we never get to see nor hear without getting silly.

Which is rather ironic, of Zuikaku, considering how that division no longer exists now :heh:


And why isn't the TTK served one of each of his kanmusu's cooking? Is he not appreciating them by not eating?

He just knows that golden bauxite is just as poisenous to the human body as normal bauxite is.
Seriously if I had to taste it rule number 1 would be that everyone putting in any metals is disaqualified before even serving.
Oh and the special hiei rule: 'Any potentially poisenous ingredient, or poisenous mixture of non poisenous ingredients leads to immediate disqualification'

So yeha the Admiral basically had a sense of self preservation. Or Nagato had a sense of protection. :heh:
They even called her 'Protector of the Navel district'

^yea im surprised she aint that hard on them, and i learned something new about shoukaku :))

I was not let down with an extra % of Akagi eating & Fubuki gushing either. Is there no love for Ashigara!?

Ithekro
2015-02-11, 15:46
Sixth Destroyer is shown off well with their personalities while also showing some of the random traits for the other compeditors.

Fubuki's core group is barely in this one. So a MC-light episode? Perhaps to give them more time for dailoge heavy stuff down the road, yet the main secondary characters are still the same or the voice actresses involved is still the same. The break is only for the voices of Fubuki, Yuudachi, and Mutsuki.

I'd forgotten Hocchan was in this as Mamiya isn't voice often in the episodes.

Kakurin
2015-02-11, 15:56
This episodes contains a number of little nuggets for gamers. Like the expedition thing with the failure. Or Akagi excited at an expedition bringing back bauxite. Or the Akatsukis scared at the hammering sound. :heh:

Is there no love for Ashigara!?
Ashigara down there crying was quite cute, haha. In any case, in my opinion all Myōkos have a fantastic figure and legs. :D

No reason for Kitakami to dislike destroyers in particular. She was designed as a light cruiser to lead destroyer squadrons. I was thinking it was a collision, but that was with the light cruiser Abukuma. maybe her duty changes when she was converted to a torpedo cruiser. but that would just make her lead of a night attack squadron for torpedo runs.

Maybe that is why she hates destroyers since she was made to lead them. Who likes taking care of children? :heh:

That is taking the saying that "the destroyers were all over her" literally. :heh:

This episode! I love it! <3

Even for somebody who doesn't play JKancolle, you could totally see why those 4 lolis are most likely the most favorite destroyer divof Kancolle! They were just so lovely and adorable and all kinds of HNG! <3 <3 <3

Though I worry they did only this episode with full focus on them and not our MC Fubuki, so that when some of them Akatsukis die/sink later on, we will be more heartbroken, remembering the fun times of the silly and entertaining curry cooking while we watch the girls sink one by one, drifting down into a black slumber they will never wake up from again~

Nah, won't happen! I don't think I could take it to see any of those 4 getting sunk! >.<

Lolz how Naka-chan dissed the "hungry wolf". And Akagisan'S "I am here to eat" which was what she did and Fubuki being all "I wanna feed her", all the lolz. XDDD

I first expected some serious episode with the whole sacrifice and tears talk and see the little girls die in some hardcore battle, but this curry battle was a thousand times more enjoyable, lovable and all kinds of awesome!

10/10 - would watch again, am totally a 6th Destroyr Div. fan now. <3

They don't seriously expect to be scrapped, it's just a natural frightened reaction they have because the sound can be connected to scrapping in general. I'd compare it to someone usng his nails to scratch the whiteboard, it's very unpleasant.

2015-02-11, 19:39

Obvious end result too of course, if only Nagamon wasnít the judge, poor Ashigara. Q______Q Spicier curry is always better damn it!
Also Shoukaku's panties... lewd.:love:
Deliciously lewd. Dat thigh too... :naughty::love:

the Akatsukis scared at the hammering sound. :heh:For some reason I was under the impression they wouldn't joke about such a thing in the anime, but it was done rather...tastefully with the Div 6 lolis.

Ashigara down there crying was quite cute, haha. In any case, in my opinion all Myōkos have a fantastic figure and legs. :D
Damn right they do!

I do wonder how last year's competition turned out. Would there have been a winner, or did everyone KO themselves...

Death Usagi
2015-02-11, 19:55

Want to know why? It's because Admirals scrap Akatsuki Lolis (basically the duplicate copies they get) everyday in the game as they are all easy drops + easy daily constructions from 30/30/30/30, where we pretty much see them get KAN KAN KAN'd everyday for dailies lol.

bhl88
2015-02-11, 20:06
lol so that explains why.... frankly I tend to modernize them instead (I don't want to hammer them xD). Herding a lot of ships to modernize Kongou to max.

The mention of kitakami's nikujaga amuses me.

While modern Japan considers nikujaga a traditional Japanese dish, so the story goes it was invented by IJN cooks at Kure naval base, all because of Admiral Togo, who was a fan of all things British, and one day had a hankering for beef stew. Having never actually seen beef stew or heard of it until that day, the cooks experimented and came up with nikujaga. :p

Also, according to a family friend who was in the Royal Navy for over 20 years, curry is to this day a very popular dish in the Royal Navy.

It's an important lesson that one must consider the judge's preference in any competition. Although it might have been easier if she'd just let a rumor go around that mild would have a better chance to win.

At least it makes sense why the loli group was encouraged to keep fighting :heh:. Needed someone that wouldn't knock themselves out of the competition or present a super spicy curry for judging :heh:. Rookies who haven't got enough experience to come up with anything besides normal mild was her only hope :).

Good episode though :). Was just nice to focus on this little group and have some fun.

I really called it. Hiei was definitely involved in the episode. :heh:
That aside, it did show a lot of details from the game, although I didn't connect the hammering sound with the concept of scrapping. To me, though, the sharp sound of metal being hammered is painful to the ears.

Seeing Hibiki put the upgraded cooking pot on her head absolutely killed me.

2015-02-11, 21:23
Goodness, Shoukaku, are you putting on some weight? Could swear I saw some extra lines there. Not that I mind plumpness :D

Anyway, gotta say I'm surprisingly pleased with how this episode turned out, giving the lovely Akatsukis the spotlight, and at least to me, making Hibiki the best. I just couldn't hold a laugh when she popped up with the pot on her head :D I'm quite glad we didn't got any drama with them, which is ironic, since the 6th div actually has some of the best material for serious stories in their own history, but that would require to go full drama, as in "Everything you've ever loved is already gone" drama. I am a little disappointed Ikazuchi didn't get to spoil anyone silly, but I guess there are some things you really can't do without a proper admiral, but Hibiki saved it easily.

Also, I'm not the most adequate person to bring this up, but this was the most reference filled episode in so far, and most importantly, we finally got to see the Akagi all the fans know and love (And Fubuki's surprisingly positive reaction, which was also hilarious) and Kaga fawning over her, much to a lot of people's delight, me included.

Next week, the real tsunkaku time!? :twitch: Just after we saw Kaga feed Akagi? B-But I don't Akagi to get NTR'd:uhoh:...but tsunkaku...:uhoh:

And you think a plain innocent dojikko like her would be so badly defiled in fanworks.


There is a HUGE difference between being a dojikko and portrayed in fanon as having the luck of Fusou sisters, Lancer and Donald Duck. Shoukaku is portrayed by fans as the latter NOT the former.

Well this explains some things...

Nagamon was in the Gendo pose almost the entire episode. It was weird, like they were going out of their way to make sure that everyone knew that it was an Evangelion reference. Then they had Mutsu standing to her side like Fuyutsuki to emphasize it more.

Wow every group was trying so hard to make it as spicy as much as possible and the judge prefers mild. Guess that she explains why she was pushing so hard for the Akatsuki's to not give up, anyone else wins she is screwed:heh:. Also loved how the Admiral was doing her best Gendo Ikari impression all episode.

Overall a fun episode that focused on a group that doesn't get much focus.

For people who don't know, NOT ALL kinds of curry are spicy. Most of the ones I ate are never spicy, and we don't only cover one side of the rice either; we pour it all over it. In fact, I don't really know why Japanese only cover one side of it...

With the announcement of an anime, I imagined all of it to be like this episode, comedy stories with a checklist of over the top character tropes pleasing fandom. The serious tone so far was actually a pleasant surprise.
So having now such a joke episode seems kind of out of place. But the episode was funny as hell, so I hope there will be at least one or two more. *still waiting for Nagamon*

The serious tone so far was actually a pleasant surprise.*

...The serious tone that showed up right at the end of episode three; right at the beginning of episode four for a few minutes; and then for maybe the last quarter of episode four, and not once outside of those times? I'm not sure that "so far" gives an appropriate impression.

Marcus H.
2015-02-12, 00:23
The start of Episode 6 reminds me of Episode 2. Remember Fubuki being pampered by everyone before her first ever taste of a field mission? In hindsight, I feel that giving the 6th Div this win was Nagato's share of sacrifice to give the girls possibly a "final happy moment".

And I don't think the first few moments of the episode was related to the curry event. We all know how Mutsu doesn't hold back in showing her emotions.

Kaga had bigger portions than Akagi : the true glutton has been reveal - *is shot to death by a hundred arrows* :heh:

I disagree because Akagi already ate half the ingredients!

Curry is generally spicy, though the level of spiciness varies; as a general rule Japanese curry is milder than Malaysian curry, which is milder than Indian curry.

Having said that there are some people who don't really think about the people eating their food, and just ramp the spiciness all the way max without considering taste (i.e. every single damn potluck at my call center).

They are very faithful with game stuff... their ingame-lines and even that expedition result is hilarious..
They even pointed to several traits in game... especially that part "when they go back from mission, neither abyssal fleet nor food are left.. Carrier Group One!"

Kirishima-Naka are a good MC combi.. while Ashigara's desperation is so sad... that's what a lady must face on, Akatsuki-chan..
It is funny that Nagato only choose the less-spicy curry to be the winner... so that's why she encourage Akatsuki-squad because she believe a group of young girls won't make a spicy curry

Yuubari-oneesan is also there.. while we got more screentime for Shoukaku as well
perfect episode and a good one to begin your day

next episode might be a funny one as well
now I'm worried about the kind of mission Nagato mentioned earlier

Well considering how Kongou's fist could repell a cannon shell assume that her theeth can probably also chew on metal too.

There is a reason you see none of them being married, I guess :heh:
Just imagine sitting on a date with someone chewing on something hard enough to cause major blunt force trauma.

One of the Mangas even has an O-make where nagato is too strong to throw an orange from one of her hands to the other without the orange completely exploding.

So yeah Ashigara not finding a man is probably not as unnatural as one would think :heh:

Kitakami confirmed that it's actually unsafe being the flagship when she worried about Ooi. We also saw this when Fubuki played the decoy so I don't think the FS protection mechanics exist. Like Kakurin-san said, Kongou basically used her barrier which in her case represents a battleship's sturdy armour.

Also if they're really cyborgs or androids then Kongou attempted to murder the admiral when she assault-jumped at Ooyodo because if it had been the admiral he would have probably been literally crushed. I do not think it works ike that... Well, unless you tell me that he wasn't there in order to stay alive. But that's one hell of a risky life the admiral is leading then.

My guess is more like spiritual beings that were born into humans, basically similar to heroic spirits in F/SN just with an actual persstent body.

Nevertheless it was strongly hinted that they can actually eat bauxite(Mamiya + Akagi) in this episode, so whichever it is they can likely actually chew on it :heh:

I’m also glad the show doesn’t try for any realism– it’s just bonkers insane. So a new girl destroyer is tossed into battle without any training… she doesn’t get any instruction for battle from the school, so her friends have to teach her… the girls as ships look like bad Halloween costumes… the whole girls as ships things… the arrows that turn into aircraft.. the adorable midgets piloting the aircraft (my favorite part of the show)… where the hell do the girls keep their torpedoes?

Ep.6 is what I like to see in Kancolle anime - SOL and silly story with fun characters interection. (I'm not saying the battle ep. is bad)

It is nice that they present this ep. from 6th destroyer division's POV. Their interection with each other and withother fleet member is perfect.

Still, it is too bad that we don't see them interact with Fubuki or see them going in battle. Since they were selected to escort Akagi's carrier division (which is Fubuki's goal) they should be good in battle somehow.

Also, I think I found my new favorite OST from this anime. It is the song that play in the background during the scene where Nagato is encouraging Akatsukis to keep trying after their failed expedition.

BTW, can someone explain me what/who did people actually refer to when they use to word 'crane'. I have seen this word a lot in but never understand it.

...The serious tone that showed up right at the end of episode three; right at the beginning of episode four for a few minutes; and then for maybe the last quarter of episode four, and not once outside of those times? I'm not sure that "so far" gives an appropriate impression.

The serious tone I'm referring to is the fact that the battle with the abyssal fleet is a matter of life and death/sinking and not some kind of sport activity the school girls have to do. Every episode so far had at least one mayor scene reminding us of this.
In this episode it was basically only the first 30sec and the rest was comedy. I would never say that the anime is a drama or something like that, but I never imagined they would take the war scenario that serious.

During WW II, the Japanese named their aircraft carriers after various dragons or, in the case of Shoukaku and Zuikaku, cranes. Kaga and Akagi doesn't fit this naming convention because they were converted from battleships.

From a personal PoV, I'd have chosen Ashigara's curry but will still give the win to DesDiv6.
The staff have run away with the idea of Hiei's curry being as close to toxic waste as possible, which is a shame. However, Ashigara's curry seems to be the closest thing to southeast asian style of curry, especially Thai ("Ultra hardcore spicy" to quote the Wolf).

What would make me give the win to DesDiv6 is the fact that the winner's curry will be served for a whole year in the base. This means a lot of personel to cater to. I wouldn't want a lot of shipgirls to skip lunch because the curry is too spicy for them.

Ikazuchi is written as 雷 (usually read Kaminari. Thunder), while Inazuma is written as 電(flash of lightning). Coincidentally, 雷電 (raiden) means thunder and lightning together.

Anyway one question about the series itself.. about the bathroom. The bath area is separated into 2 areas.. first one is the larger pool that can be shared by many at one time.. the other one are the smaller pools for repairing? Why up to this point, i've only seen those carrier girls that using the smaller pool? Akagi, Kaga and Zuikaku... i mean no other girls going to use that too? In episode 5, when they were deciding on the flagship, i'm sure those lesby duo hurt more than Zuikaku and Kaga, yet they didn't use the smaller pool for healing themselves.. in fact it would be more beneficial for those lesby to share the same small pool.. i guess lol?

Anyway hoping for more Akagi and Kongoulicious in the next episode <3

After listening to the full ED, I noticed that the lyrics have all of the Fubuki class in it. Fubuki, Murakumo, Shirayuki, Isonami, Miyuki, Hatsuyuki. Yet other than Fubuki, they don't have any role in the anime

Episode 4, 5 and 6 officially sealed my ass to this series. Heck now i feel like trying the game itself for real.. Akagi and Kongou are simply irresistible.

Anyway one question about the series itself.. about the bathroom. The bath area is separated into 2 areas.. first one is the larger pool that can be shared by many at one time.. the other one are the smaller pools for repairing? Why up to this point, i've only seen those carrier girls that using the smaller pool? Akagi, Kaga and Zuikaku... i mean no other girls going to use that too? In episode 5, when they were deciding on the flagship, i'm sure those lesby duo hurt more than Zuikaku and Kaga, yet they didn't use the smaller pool for healing themselves.. in fact it would be more beneficial for those lesby to share the same small pool.. i guess lol?

Anyway hoping for more Akagi and Kongoulicious in the next episode <3

I was suprised it was just the carriers too.
I got Mutsu and Akagi not too far apart from each other and Mutsu really just needs 2 or 3 hours less than Akagi, so I was kinda surprised to not see Kongou there too. Then again Kongou didn't look too tattered in comparison to the rest.

battleships are not much better, they may have a shorter maximum time though. I hope I will never find out...

My current record is Akagi with 7:40:00

There were no normal battleships in there. Fast battleships repair faster than normal battleships and aircraft carriers.

To whit, in the game, the repair time increases depending on the following factors: ship type, level of the ship, maximum HP, and the damage done compared to the maximum HP.

To give you an idea, a level 89 Nagato reduced to 1 HP out of her max 90 HP after her remodel, takes twenty-eight hours and more to repair.

Imagine the repair time of a level 150 Yamato reduced to 1 HP. Has to be upward of 50 hours I think. :heh:

Max HP don't really affect it. A higher Max HP just means you can take more damage without going on red / being stuck at 1 HP. And then amount of damage will affects the repair time.

Wasn't there a maximum limit for every ship though?

nah, Myssa Rei is right.
If you reduce Nagato to 1 HP she will take longer to repair than if you reduce Kongou to 1 HP, even if both have the same level.
Simply because Nagato has more max HP, thus needs more time to from 1 to 90 than Kongou from her 1 to 70.

No, it is just that FBB are faster to repair than regular BB. Both have different time coefficient for repair time, hence why if they have the exact same damage and level, their repair time will still differ.
Anyway, this discussion has nothing to do with this episode. Please move on.

That's because Fubuki is supposed to be the very first of the special type destroyers in the base, so if you bring others along, it would make her less special. That said, the Akatsuki class is also part of the special type destroyers, in fact, that's why they all have the III pin on them (Fubuki class is 1st gen, Ayanami class is 2nd gen and Akatsukis class is 3rd), so I guess this only applies to the first two classes.

I wonder how much time has passed during ep.6.

Judging from Akatsukis' flashback, it looks like at least a week or two has passed. Probably the longest of all eps. so far, except maybe the second ep.

Next time we saw Fubuki, she probably already get used to her new division.

BTW, Akatsukis' VA did a great job in this ep. She probably have fun talking with herself in many different voices.

A great SoL episode overall.

Really liked the interaction among the Akatsukis. Along with the prep work before the competition as well as during the competition.

The prep work part was fun, especially when Yuubari is counted, and of course the flamethrower. People may freak out of the hammering noises she made and her "creepy" entry might mistaken her as a "mad geek", even though she didn't really mean anything bad. :heh:

It seemed like the DesDiv 6 weren't the only ones who participated. Even Kongou and Ashigara too, fighting over teitoku, I presume. So as CarDiv 1, CarDiv 5 and Shimakze. But why not Takaos? D:

Poor Ashigara... She ended up crying "I'll never get married!" as she did her best (Again, I assume she wanted to win over teitoku as Kongou's rival of the day) I'll gladly favor hers if I'm the judge. :heh: Still, the lolis deserve the reward for their hard work.

Interesting to note that Nagato is not only as a secretary, but also as the admiral's proxy. I assume he too wouldn't bear the extremely spicy food. :heh:

As promised, here are the "issues" of this episodes, although they aren't as glaring as in the previous episodes:

1) Teleporting pot

From what we can see in this cut, the curry pot isn't close to any other object.

However, once the Akatsuki melted it, it suddenly got located more on the right, since we can see that wooden wedge.

2) Teleport, Russian edition

As you can see, the akatsuki sisters are close to each other and form a line, parallel to the wooden walls.

https://i.imgur.com/6MS2ExEl.jpg (http://i.imgur.com/6MS2ExE.jpg)

However, when Yuubari shows up from their right, they are suddenly parallel to the brick walls without any indication they shuffled or moved around. In fact, before freaking out, they had a normal posture, implying they only reacted a split of second later, instead of moving around offscreen.

Furthermore, even if Hibiki panicked or something, it is odd for her to be close to Akatsuki, instead of being stuck between Inazuma and Ikazuchi.

Still, those "teleport issues" are tend to be easily overlooked and therefore negated by some of us, didn't really matter much. Though, it may indicate the production's choppy work.

Well, look at it this way, Hibiki teleported to where she is (hiding next to Akitsuki) to not only get away from the known creepy someone (Yuubari), but also away from the usually quiet someone who is known to suddenly go yandere and breaks out the anchor and torpedo to club someone (Inazuma, aka "Plasma-chan" aka "She Who Trolls Poor Little Miyuki"):heh:

Something I realized just now - The sentences Nagato says are the same the Narrator says in EP 1.
So theory: Old woman (EP 1 Narrator) == Nagato?
