Whoa, watching Fubuki getting injured around this episode was a bit painful. Probably most serious episode yet and it emphasizes on Fubuki's current fighting capabilities.

Akagi isn't wrong though with the way she is pushing her imo.

Her remodel looks plain

Well, Fubuki reached lvl20! So much for major remodel expectations :heh:

The episode itself wasn't bad at all but... it really came out too late after everything done thus far. At this point, things would have been less awkward if Fubuki never had such progression in the middle of the series with the fifth fleet, so having such severe ups and downs over so many episodes is clunky.

Now things will be ugly next week... MI operation confirmed.

It is plain, she reached level 20, which is the 1st remodel level for most/all DDs.
The one Yuudachi got was lv 55.

So yeah as it was speculated in the EP 9 thread: Mutsuki and Yuudachi were on a far higher level than Fubuki when she joined them in EP 1, and they had far more Battles behind them than just 2.

The equipment though she got is her Kai Ni equipment. Besides, even at Kai Ni Fubuki's appearance doesn't change much, aside from another uniform.

If it wasn't for the fire director on her left hand, she would be a plain kai :heh:
Well, there were probably other little details like her boiler, but the most obvious change was supposed to be her uniform.
It is a bit weird that the anime staff forgot to apply kai ni changes on her uniform.

If Hoppo makes a cameo appearance, it'll be right after everyone's been bullying her for hishimochi in the game.

Sigh.

I felt for Mitsuki here, what with her friends either dying or apparently having some sort of death wish.

Sheba
2015-03-11, 13:38
Hoppo is part of AL operation, it's uncertain if AL Op will be in the anime. Then again, knowing Hoppo's tremendous popularity among fans, it's possible that she is a boss in MI anime version.

Aside from that,
is it just my imagination or does the Flagship Wo have one blue eye too much?

several things I learn from this episode :

PvP with other kantai is the best way to boost your lvl
Teitoku is a lolicon and already make a grand plan to succeed Fubuki as his new secretary and marry her :heh: so far, it is teitoku-doori

It is a pity that they didn't give Fubuki her kai-ni uniform... Fubuki is already plain enough in her kai-ni form but without her uniform, it is really didn't sound like major remodel

I really hope Mutsuki at least could slap Fubuki for her carelessness

can't get enough of Yuudachi poi~~ Yuudachi kai-ni so cool
and finally we get Chitose and Chiyoda in this episode... although only from their back :heh:

Historically speaking, wasn't Fubuki's red trim represented in her kai-ni unifom from when she was assigned to the Solomons (after Midway)?

Kakurin
2015-03-11, 15:12
I like the composition of the training sequence with Akagi and Kaga. Although I still wonder whether it would've been better in the light of the recent two episodes if they hadn't given Fubuki that great success as flagship of the 5th Fleet.

Oh, and after some episodes this one returned with a 3D sequence that irked me: Fubuki after remodeling. It looks strange with Fubuki in 3D, while Mutsuki and Yūdachi standing next to her are drawn. Yeah, they probably did this because Fubuki was moving around while the other two were standing. But still, it doesn't look good. Again shows that something with time/budget is off when they have to save at sequences like this. MI better look great.

Klashikari
2015-03-11, 15:18
^ Yep, and it is quite irritating since Fubuki was the very same girl who told Zuikaku AND Kaga to stick with textbook strategies and all. Even if she was unsure about herself as a flagship, she took the best course of actions there. Same could be said when Zuikaku almost got toasted by a torpedo.
Here, she went completely newbie mode who wants exp points ASAP (the camera pan on her arrogant expression after hitting the abyssal CL says a lot), even though she reconsidered her role after last week drama.

That's why all of these ups and downs are annoying me. I wish they went through with this plot line INSTEAD of the fifth fleet "arc".

James Rye
2015-03-11, 15:22
I liked how Kaga-san kept giving Fubuki new chances to prove herself though clearly she was out of her league to defend herself against multiple planes yet protect somebody else. But man, I can't get used to this serious Akagi given how much fandom fun Akagi I have seen those past weeks. XD

I'm a bit worried that Fubuki might lose sight of her goal though, she already IS useful to somebody, to Mutsuki-chan, but all she sees/wants to be useful for is Akagi-san. And given all the deathflag Akagi has I worry for Fubuki's sanity in case of Akagi getting sunk. :/

Also dat random marriage dream outta nowhere. What kinda admiral bases his strategy around a girl he dreamed off?^^;

I also got surprised by "that scene". Somewhat of a laugh out of "wow really?".

Strange choice for them to do with her remodel being kai ni equipment but without the kai ni rigging and clothes. All in all, I think her strength should be kai ni level as people were even expecting her to be more trained than Yuudachi and get a remodel first with Yuudachi happening first because of the lower level. Actually does the normal kai even exist here? Yuudachi and all the DDs girls last episode acted as they never saw a remodel before, even thought Yuudachi got her kai ni change and the others should have been experienced enough for the first remodel.

As I mentioned before, considering Midway is on the end of the anime, I think it's unlikely Akagi will sunk. They may almost sink but still survive. This is supposed to be a story about Bucky's grown, so having someone sink at the very end wouldn't work for that, in my opinion. Also different from actual Midway, this time they know the enemy known their codes so they even using a codename so they do'nt know where they're attacking.

I wonder what happened to the admiral. Did he just die? If he didn't, why didn't he just came back? I mean he was in the base, it's not like an air attack would thrown him kilometers away without killing him. I hope they don't pretend to make him really be the player, where what we saw is happening inside the game and he just got some internet problems and can't connect...

I was more like 'Wtf?! How random is that?'
What is even worse is the Admirals explaination for why Fubuki came to the district, considering how they only interacted with each other once or twice outside of his office.

She pretty much has the same equipment as her Kai variant + an AA fire detector.

Its too bad we never get to see the Admirals thoughts, that would probably answer a lot of questions, like

- Why the hell does he write with an ink barrel and a feather?
- Why doesn't he have a telephone or any other modern equipment on the base (Like an AA defense :rolleyes:)
- Why didn't he think back to midway when he found out about the codes?

All we can really say is that the abyssals are likely not the USN forces, since the intro scene makes t sound like a global problem.

Honestly, I doubt Kaga was actually against Fubuki becoming her escort.
Theoretically Fubuki already escorted Kaga so she should know that Fubuki can actually do it. (Note that in this case being Akagi's escort also means being Kaga's)

Her being against it was just Kaga's being a tsundere again.

Either something like that or the story connects worse than just the 'Fubuki-drama' issue :/

The equipment layout is exactly the same as in her Kai Ni art. Moreover, only Hatsushimo Kai Ni and Fubuki Kai Ni have a fire director as stock equipment.

Kaga was well justified in her demand of a test for Fubuki and it had nothing to do with her being tsundere. Fubuki has never done anti-air combat before. It would be a massive risk sending in an unproven destroyer as escort for a valuable fleet carrier without knowing whether she could handle the upcoming carrier battle.

I guess the Wo Flagship has some kind of plan with him and abducted him.

How could they abduct him, though? He was on land. They attacked from far away with the planes. I don't think those planes can carry a person.

From the scene after where Akagi and Kaga is talking with Nagato, it does seems like Kaga was acting to push Fubuki over her limit to see if she would finally remodel.

Her uniform aside, I see no diffference between her boiler before and after the upgrade, moreover she still has the lookout post. - Might be the absence of zoom shots of it though.
Both her boiler and her lookout remain pretty much the same, and her torpedoes don't realyl look different either.

Its a wierd mix out of both arts, and could as well be a Kai remodel with some equipment change. - Even Fubuki questions it.

The games Kai art is just the developers being too busy to update it for the changed equipment in the first place.

As for the AA detector being unbuildable - that wouldn't even make sense from an Anime PoV, since she got one right on her wrist.

If Kaga actually meant business she would have just let her planes fly too high.
In fact Kaga made sure she wouldn't give up by saying 'Again' over and over instead of 'Thats all I'm dissapointed go screw yourself' which she would have done if she was seriously against it.

If Kaga had actually meant it as a test Fubuki would have failed right after the first hit.

It is really not that much different than her general behavior towards Zuikaku.

Its just Kaga's way of saying 'let me help you with that remodel', much like she just bomb killed Zuikaku's target.

How could they abduct him, though? He was on land. They attacked from far away with the planes. I don't think those planes can carry a person.


Wo and her escorts were on the move when she launched the planes, theoretically she could have gone on land.

Yamato already did it a few episodes ago (seriously why did they leave her at the base...), and Yuudachi as well as Fuubuki did it in EP 9 and 10.



From the scene after where Akagi and Kaga is talking with Nagato, it does seems like Kaga was acting to push Fubuki over her limit to see if she would finally remodel.

That too, almost forgot about that.

----

I just hope 'Full might of the combined fleet' means we will get to see Yamato again and finally get to see Nagato and Mutsu on the water.

Otherwise I got to wonder why they included the rigging in their character arts in the first place :/

Of course Kaga wasn't out there to make Fubuki fail. That doesn't mean that she wasn't testing and drawing out her abilities. If Fubuki had in failed in the end, given up and not gotten the remodel, she wouldn't have been chosen as Akagi's escort, plain and simple.

Besides, Akagi and Kaga's planes didn't really fly lower than the Abyssal planes during their attacks in prior episodes.

I'm almost certain the Admiral was killed rather than abducted. The ships that came back later might be told something else to keep their spirits up, but the description given to Fubuki sounds like he stayed at his post even as the building was destroyed. The Empty Chair being a sign of loss without showing a body.

(as for Kaga, she seemed satified and lowered her bow when Fubuki seemed done. It was Akagi that pushed for one more time. Kaga seemed surprised by Akagi as well, showing some emotion which Kaga rarely does.)

I guess I'll use other subs for this episode, since CR massively failed. Who the heck is this red-eyed person? Also the grammar mistakes at 07:30 and 10:15 annoyed me a lot.

As for the episode itself, most was already said.
- Extremely random marriage scene, although Fubuki in a wedding dress is cute.
- Fubuki going full retard and almost sank.
- The sister ship of Fubuki's closest friend was sunk. Yet she acts like it's no big deal that the very same thing almost happened to her.
- RIP Akagi. Even if Fubuki managed to shoot down all the planes she only barely did so after several tries. If she performs like that in a real battle she will definitely fail.
- Why was there a Ooi/KTKM scene?

If you really wanna level up, don't fight Abyssal ships, all you need is some tough love from Kaga. Meaning getting shot by her training planes. A lot. :P

Besides, Akagi and Kaga's planes didn't really fly lower than the Abyssal planes during their attacks in prior episodes.

I believe it is Kaga's way of helping Fubuki, much like she does with Zuikaku.

As chaosprophet said, even the scene with Nagato later on gives that impression.

Its pretty much the same as with Zuikaku.
In both cases she didn't aknowledge their abilities, despite knowing better.

I think the planes she launched were not as far away/ as high as the 2 groups Fubuki was stopped at by Mutsuki.

. Who the heck is this red-eyed person?

- RIP Akagi. Even if Fubuki managed to shoot down all the planes she only barely did so after several tries. If she performs like that in a real battle she will definitely fail.
- Why was there a Ooi/KTKM scene?

Who indeed.
Klashikari said earlier that it was supposed to be one-eyed.
There is indeed a red-eyed version of the Wo-Class though, it just hasn't appeared in the anime.

As for Fubuki - her old 12.7cm twin cannons actually have a pretty bad AA stat, even in the game and there is no real reason to use them over the 10 cm twin high angle ones she got equipped with now.

Its like

12.7 twin mount cm:
2 Firepower (3 for Yuudachi's upgraded version)
2 Anti Air

vs:

10 twin high angle cm:
2 Firepower
7 AA

The fact that the first half of this episode didn't end with Fubuki getting slapped or something was kind of disappointing. Almost dies like a moron and yet can only talk about "did I get the kill?" or saying "but" as if her actions were remotely justified. Seriously let that idiot sink. Mutsuki's reaction wasn't even remotely crossing the line. Fubuki ignored orders, ran around like an idiot trying to get all the kills and nearly died. I see nothing she did as being good in that situation.

Which I suppose left me enjoying the second half of the episode too much :D. She totally deserved to get blasted away by Akagi and Kaga :).

And in other news....the commander is still missing and probably dead since they haven't found him by now :heh:.

Wandering Soul
2015-03-11, 18:33
I was expecting some sort of slap from Mutsuki but I guess getting called out by a few people did the job too. Akagi and Kaga more than made sure that Fubuki payed physically for her behavior and their test did finally give Fubuki the chance to remodel.

Not much to Fubuki's remodel. No real major change like Yudachi, especially not the change Fubuki seemed to be hoping for:heh:

Fubuki spraying down the enemy planes more than likely. This are rapid fire guns. Her old guns are rated at something between 5 and 10 shells per minute, while her new guns are rated at 15 to 21 shells per minute.

I was worried that Fubuki would go down the cursed path Yura from C3-Bu took when Sonora gave her the chance to develop that kind of persistent attitude. Fortunately, Mutsuki was able to bring Fubuki to reconsider pushing herself to the brink.

So, it turns out that our Dear Admiral was so attached to Fubuki that he wants to give her the ring... and drag her several miles inland to give her the perfect proposal. Sasuga Teitoku. :heh:

It's also interesting that it was Kaga that held back when Fubuki was clearly struggling in the anti-air challenge. Shows a lot about the personalities of Kaga and Akagi. Well, it all pays off in the end. Fubuki starts shining and gets a totally bland makeover. :heh:

You know, I don't even play the game, and yet the moment I realized the Admiral's dream involved Fubuki's marriage line, I went "what kind of kuso teitoku is this?" :heh:

It feels awkward to me that he was apparently dreaming about marrying Fubuki back before he even really knew her, or even would have known much of anything about her. If it was something that had been built up to after getting to know her... well, it would still be pedobear alert, but at least she has some positive character traits that one can see that he might have come to respect and care about her over time. But... no, apparently he was into her from the start. And the fact that he's still a faceless nobody with no developed personality... I was willing to let it go even through the last episode, but with this... no. There needs to be a person involved when they start doing this kind of thing.

The Fubuki marriage thing kinda supports the reincarnation theory.
Maybe the Admiral already had married Fubuki before, but lost her in battle, thus his interest to "bring her to her past glory".

On that marriage dream scene, it makes it a little harder to tell what time it is. But I guess we can already rule out early Showa era. So it might possibly be some kind of alternate future.

I also was expecting Fubuki to get slapped, but I'm kind of glad it didn't happen since that particular approach is a bit overdone in fiction (so much so that I wouldn't be surprised if it has its own TV Tropes listing under one name or another :heh:). Also, a fully-clothed Mutsuki wildly jumping into the hot bath to tightly embrace the just-awakened Fubuki makes for a more emotionally resonant scene for me than a conventional slap would have. I felt this scene (as well as some others in this episode) did a great job of showcasing just how important Fubuki is to Mutsuki.

While Fubuki was a bit exasperating this episode, she didn't bother me as much as she did some viewers. Honestly, I kind of like how she has a character trait that has both its good points and its bad points - That character trait I would call "highly focused and determined stubbornness". Basically, when Fubuki sets her heart on something, that's it, that's all she sees, as she has a tendency to focus on that heavily to the exclusion of everything else, even her own safety and basic well-being.

In some instances, it's definitely a bad thing, as it very nearly got her sunk in this episode from needlessly reckless actions. But on the other hand, this trait probably played a role in her successfully completing the test she was put to in the 2nd half of this episode.

Because of this character/personality trait, Fubuki is most useful and organized when she has a very specific role given to her - Be it a flagship for a small fleet, or (now) Akagi's escort ship. When given a specific role, she focuses on fulfilling it to the best of her ability, which is partly why she did a good job as a flagship in recent episodes. But lacking such a specific role, Fubuki tends to overdo it in trying to blow away the enemy all on her lonesome, lacking good co-ordination with the fleet as a whole. This character/personality trait is probably fitting given that she's supposed to be a special Destroyer type.


On the whole, this was a very good episode, though I agree with criticisms of how Fubuki's upgrade looked. Yeah, at the very least, they should have changed her uniform more.

In any event, nice to see Fubuki achieve her dream. Given that fact, and given where we now are in the anime, I think that Akagi is actually very safe now. A few episodes back, I thought that Akagi might get sunk to further the drama brought in by Episode 3, and to really challenge Fubuki in Fubuki's character arc. However, the way that Fubuki's character arc is currently unfolding, I very much doubt that Akagi gets sunk.

Akagi getting sunk within the next episode or two would result in Fubuki looking like a failure, since Fubuki's main job now appears to be to guard Akagi. I really don't see Kancolle ending on such a dark and tragic note given the overall mood of the show. Only exception might be if they have a Season 2 already in the works.

I laughed a bit at the start when Nagato explained the Admiral's reason for recalling Fubuki. It's like those situations in romantic series when the GF sees the BF with another girl and mistakes him for cheating on her, when said girl is actually just there to help him to choose a nice gift for her :D

On a slightly more serious tone, this highlights the difference in the level of trust/understanding Fubuki has towards the Admiral compared to what, say, Kongou has. Had she known him better, she would have taken the disbanding command and all more in stride with the knowledge that the Admiral has it all in place, as what Kongou said.

On a even more serious note, I hope this is the last time we get a unnecessary forced-in KitaOoi rabu-rabu scene. Ooichi is starting to become to the not-so-funny comedic relief in the show already, sheesh.


If it wasn't for the fire director on her left hand, she would be a plain kai :heh:
Well, there were probably other little details like her boiler, but the most obvious change was supposed to be her uniform.
It is a bit weird that the anime staff forgot to apply kai ni changes on her uniform.

I guess Shibafu submitted his design too late to be included into the anime's live air and they thought this is probably what he would give them anyway :heh:

I do wish we get those Akizuki-guns in the game as well =w=

Hoppo is part of AL operation, it's uncertain if AL Op will be in the anime. Then again, knowing Hoppo's tremendous popularity among fans, it's possible that she is a boss in MI anime version.

You know, I don't even play the game, and yet the moment I realized the Admiral's dream involved Fubuki's marriage line, I went "what kind of kuso teitoku is this?" :heh:

It's like Hikaru Genji all again :heh:

Admiral: *Gendo Pose* Just as Planned!

I felt this scene (as well as some others in this episode) did a great job of showcasing just how important Fubuki is to Mutsuki.

I think Mutsuki's emotional out-burst achieves the same effect as a slap would have done and I think slapping Fubuki is kinda OoC for her too.

What I really like in that bath scene is how the story brings out the full effect of Kisaragi's death. There's a real urgency and intensity because Mutsuki, having experienced the heartbreak from losing a close one, has no intention of going through all that again. And Fubuki, who knows what Mutsuki has gone through, would be more receptive to the latter's concerns =3

I hope they don't pretend to make him really be the player, where what we saw is happening inside the game and he just got some internet problems and can't connect...
The anime staff should have tried copying Idolmaster series.

The Producer actually is the most popular character from the series, and that says a lot about the incompetence or lack of creatitivy (and consistence) in this series...

Basically you'd have Akagi sink first (June), than Mutsuki (August), then Fubuki goes out with Aoba for a night battle (October) followed by a epiloge of Yuudachi going crazy in combat around the Solomons with Hiei and Kirishima (November). Ending with a crying Kongo and Haruna. It would be extremely depressing.

Which is why I don't think it will happen. The idea is to not repeat the tragedy after all. That is what the OP song says at least.

I don't really.
The Base not being modern might be for the Girl's sake, which is why I think its sad we see ther story out of Fubuki's eyes instead of the Admirals.

If we saw the story out of the Admirals PoV we would have access to his thoughts and might get things like if the code thing reminded him on midway or why he is using an ink bottle and a feather for writing.

The intro scene kinda made it sound like the girls are just ships born as humans and got spiritual powers.
Yet we never hear them talk about their actual families and they generally view their sister ships as their relatives.
Maybe thats the reason we never atually see them go into a town, I can see how it would be rather frustrating for people if they were souls born into humans and one day pooof they awaken, forget most things and don't consider their actual family family anymore.

Many ship girls lines in the game reference modern things, so it's generally accepted that Kancolle story happens in modern days. Although it's true that the anime didn't show anything very modern yet on the base, from their communication system and all as far as I can remember.

The focus is mostly Fubuki, and she spends her time training and dreaming of being praised by Akagi. She doesn't have time for that other stuff. Sixth Destroyer was the only other main focus and they were busy cooking.

It might be they just don't hand those sorts of things to what are I suppose spirits given human form amd keep them mostly focused on their task against the Abyssal. There clothing seems more advanced than the 1940s. Especially when they are not in their usual uniforms.

Sticking to history accuracy wouldn't make sense considering the situation is drastically different (aware that the codes have been broken, using another code in case, Fubuki with AAFD).
That said, it would be a bit silly that there is no casualty (and speaking of which, they still didn't confirm what happened to Shouhou), so all the death flag on Akagi might trigger full force.

And also "a teitoku should not go and sink any shipgirls at any costs" logic. (From what I think.) But yes, it is more into killing off its characters and teitokus are scared that their shipfus are next than the logic I stated.

And also because Kisaragi is not that popular as stated in the other thread when episode 3 airs.

@The Green One: No thanks. :upset: You wouldn't want to set up a pool and saying "who is going to die" when there are people playing the game and have the shipfus you might put in the poll.

Does anyone here want to see the Fire Director beep and move its "head" around like a Star Wars maintenance droid?

I'm start questioning when will Nagato and Mutsu go to the front line.
Their official anime artwork have them with their weapons but we haven't see them launched until now.

With the admiral gone, does Nagato need to stay behind? Or do they go all out with Nagato, Mutsu, and Yamato as a unit to backup the carriers and Kongos?

Finally got time to watch this episode... and:

There are so many girls and you pick Fubuki for marriage? TTk , you lolicon. Won't surprise me if it was Hoppou bombing his office
a bit too much drama for my liking
of course Fubuki is crucial for upcoming missions. She is the only one with a Type 94 AA fire detector. Plus she gonna be the flagship means AA cut-in, motherf*cker
does not surprise any Kancolle players that Fubuki leveled up thank to daily practice training rather than continuous grinding
considering that Yuudachi currently have more fire power than any of the DD and CL (with torpedo stats second only to Shimakaze). Would have expected her to destroy every enemies once Fubuki passed out. they should have showed that on screen
