A movie has been officially announced during the second naval review official event. It is scheduled for 2016.

Thus far, most of the first season anime cast has been confirmed, along with second remodels.
-Fubuki Kai ni
-Mutsuki Kai ni
-Yuudachi Kai ni
-Akagi
-Kaga
-Souryuu Kai ni
-Hiryuu Kai ni
-Furutaka Kai ni
-Kako Kai ni
-Kongou Kai ni
-Hiei Kai ni
-Haruna Kai ni
-Kirishima Kai ni
-Nagato
-Mutsu
-Ooyodo
-Kuma
-Tama
-Ooi
-Kitakami
-Shoukaku
-Zuikaku
-Choukai Kai ni
-Yuubari
-Shimakaze


There is no information regarding the staff nor the direction the movie will take, although it is very likely it will be more battle centred due to the remodels.
The official anime twitter account has confirmed that the movie and the anime sequel are 2 different projects (https://twitter.com/anime_KanColle/status/630349070867959808).

However, there is still no information regarding the sequel to the anime series, which could be either a second season or OVA(s).

The final episode of the television anime series had revealed in March that the anime would get a sequel. The anime's official Twitter account indicates that the movie and the sequel are separate projects that are going into production at the same time.

It might just follow the anime though. in that case none of the Midway girls died to begin with.

What worries me the most is the fact both seem to be schedule for 2016.
The first season didn't have an impressive production value, yet they had to delay its schedule (was more or less planned to be broadcasted on summer 2014, delayed to January 2015).

If anything, I really wish the production committee will loosen up the budget constraints and whatnot, because even simple quality check was practically laughable, despite the attention to details like the planes used by CV.

Rubbish.
Of course the announcement would have some flak considering the anime series wasn't convincing by any stretch of imagination, but I find funny someone merely collect some heated responses from angry fans as the major response of the "gamer community".

If anything, there are still plenty content fans considering the high sales (albeit low for a huge franchise like KC) of the BD/DVD.

The anime version of Mutsuki's k2 just looks... strange.. Same goes to Hiryuu K2 :heh:
TbH Hiryuu looks so alien to me I'd not even be sure whether she actually was Hiryuu if it wasn't for her Bandana and Souryuu being right next to her. Chokai on the other hand loos like... Well Chokai :heh: - I wonder who made her blush there.

Looking at the other screenshots I see some things I wonder about:
Most ships got their K2, yet Ooi and KTKM don't.
Kaga and Akagi look rather happy for Hiryuu and Souryuu regarding them having gotten their K2 (Smiling Kaga - Wth?! :heh:)

BB hime on the other hands makes it look like Abyssals are... Robots?

Yes, I got that impression after looking back at the screenshots a number of times and noticing what looks like some sort of discoloration and distortion of the shots... And after that of course we're going back into having an "Admiral" who's not going to be shown at all, aren't we? :heh:

Klashikari
2016-04-22, 20:08
Considering we don't have full battle sequences yet, it is a bit too hasty to tell.
Visually speaking, it doesn't seem improved compared to the tv series, but if we assume the movie got a higher budget, full 2D combats aren't out of question.

So will this movie bring back good faith that a good KanColle anime adaptation is possible? Or will it be considered one of the most mishandled IP for an anime ever?

I feel like what Touken Ranbu is doing for theirs for having 2 different shows, one SOL and one more plot and action oriented, is what the KanColle anime SHOULD have done to appease a good chunk of fans or even bring in new ones.

At first. I seem to recall Fubuki had a premonition of them sinking as shipgirls if they went without her.

I guess it's a reference to Fubuki's presence in many operations before Esperance. If I remember correctly, she had roughly the same worries when she was in a different location while others move to the frontlines in the anime.

iirc akagi's sinking was..she was in ship form?

In the anime, no. She remembered herself as the original ship.

so...bucky sinks? i would assume it would be another dream type

Maybe. But I wonder... is the 1900s Fubuki linked to Kancolle's Fubuki? If there's a link, then is it possible for her to remember the older Fubuki's memories?

The 1900s Fubuki suffered a worse fate IMO, being literally scrapped.
With the exception of museum ships just about every ship that's not sunk is scrapped. USS Enterprise? Scrapped. Warspite? Scrapped. And so on. That's hardly a worse fate, especially since they don't cost lives. A ship is not only the metal, it's also made up of the crew. Just asking, what's the better fate, getting blown up with 1418 men like HMS Hood or retired then scrapped with the men on board surviving like Warspite? If we make some analogy, getting sunk is like a person getting killed. Turned into a museum ship is like getting mummified. And scrapped is like being cremated after dying of natural causes.

Marcus H.
2016-08-20, 06:55
Interesting. I've always thought that dying in the act of duty is something honorable to the men and women in the battlefield, but I guess that's one way of seeing loss; the other is the fact that it still involves pain and death and it's not something a person wants to feel while trying to protect others.

I get what you're saying, but like what Kakurin-san said, I'd say that a ship making it to "retirement" (i.e. going to the scrap yard) after service is an honorable way to go, too. The ship did it's duty.

There are other ways, too. USS Oriskany, amongst many other vessels, was turned into an artificial reef. It allows the ship to go on serving, in a way, even after its useful life has ended.

Read some spoilers for the movie, and apparently it uses one of the more common interpretations of some overarching game mechanics for the story:



They do apparently use the "Abyssals = Shipgirls = Abyssals" interpretation, in that Shipgirls sunk in battle become Abyssals, and Abyssals sunk in battle can become Shipgirls when they're rescued. And it is apparently confirmed that yes, the Abyssals are are creatures made from the anger and grief of ships sunk during the war.

So essentially, Shipgirls and Abyssals are locked in an endless battle where their casualties result in bolstering each other's forces. At least, in the anime's setting anyway.

Read some spoilers for the movie, and apparently it uses one of the more common interpretations of some overarching game mechanics for the story:



They do apparently use the "Abyssals = Shipgirls = Abyssals" interpretation, in that Shipgirls sunk in battle become Abyssals, and Abyssals sunk in battle can become Shipgirls when they're rescued. And it is apparently confirmed that yes, the Abyssals are are creatures made from the anger and grief of ships sunk during the war.

So essentially, Shipgirls and Abyssals are locked in an endless battle where their casualties result in bolstering each other's forces. At least, in the anime's setting anyway.



wasnt there a manga where a shipgirl was inside the abyss transport?

Just watched the movie, but my Japanese is somewhat limited, so I'll post here some of my thoughts of the movie.

The design and quality is a step up from the TV series, as expected of a film version.
We see more of those cute chibi ship crew doing their stuff.
We got confirmation about what we quite guessed already.
Yamato and Roast beef.
Yamato being awesome in the final battle.
Yamato doing her " 'tis but a scratch!" scene.
Mutsuki and abyss Kisaragi "you shall not pass!"
Did Fubuki have a plan when she did what she did?
Such a fitting death scene. But...
Wtf with the post credit.

Anyway, I find it quite entertaining. The drama fits in the right places. The action scenes is well made, with a sense of real danger.

They gave every viewer a nice steel badge which is cool.

So essentially, Shipgirls and Abyssals are locked in an endless battle where their casualties result in bolstering each other's forces. At least, in the anime's setting anyway.




While in some form obvious its imho a bit too simple. There are way more abyssals than shipgirls, after all there are so many they became problems for modern aircraft carriers and destroyer that shouldn't have much trouble with WWII Aircraft to begin with. (Especially Aegis destroyers).
So either their regrets can be split into multible abyssals - we are assuming there is just one Fubuki, Kaga and so on in total like the anime implies - or some abyssals are actually native abyssals and can just corrupt ship girls, making the corrupted shipgirls the non-generic himes (non generic as in for example CL Hime).
Cl hime is another such example why I personally think that alone is a bit too simple. CL hime isn't just Agano or Naka. She is actually both . So yeah simple Abyssal == Fleetgirls==Abyssals is a bit too simple for my liking and opening up several problems...


Probably the more dread question is, where is Yukikaze?

There is another girl left to Yukikaze that looks like it says destroyer - no idea who its supposed to be though as the name isn't shown. Could be Yukikaze's elbow or

My beef with the Abyssals origin according to the movie:

Remember the 495 (I think it was) armour Abyssal Teruzuki? :heh:

gah now I remember that mental trauma again :/ - I tried to refuse the reality where such a destroyer was allowed to exist. :heh:

Just came back from watching the movie. A huge step up from the TV anime in all respects. Tipping my hat to Diomedea, they did good work there. As a long time player and fan I'm pretty happy with their job on the movie.

Positives:
1) Lot of action - well-animated action (Tenryū! awesome! Yamato good as well). As far as I've seen no noticeable use of 3D. All of the close-ins at least were hand-drawn.
2) Good use of the Abyssal/Kanmusu dynamic to create a (dark-themed) story that's at the heart of the movie. SOL stuff is cut to a minimum, in the whole movie only two scenes or so light SOL stuff. Perhaps more important, no wasting time with the annoying KitaOi antics.
3) Good job managing the drama and tension.
4) Funny seeing the fairies at work including the supplying part.
5) Music is pretty solid. Especially like the theme song by Nishizawa.
6) Ryūjō and her kansai-ben was funny. :heh:

Negatives:
1) Some transitions were handled too roughly like cut with a scissor.
2) Not sure about the post-credits scene. Don't think it was necessary.

Googling what 4DX does I vividly remember that from a I was in a 4 or 5DX vampire movie once.
Basically the movie there is supposed to actually stimulate your senses through vibrating the ground/seats.
In the Movie I was on it started to smell like you were in a wet crypt, with lots of spray like water fdust when blood gushed.

In Kancolle's case they probably have a smell like the sea with the water dust coming down when it rains and so on.
The one I saw wasw a short movie though, and I think you didn't have seats.
So yeah a full movie with it must be rather epic.

Just got back. First the loot (after getting a film strip the last time):

http://i.imgur.com/2D1LrwEh.jpg

It was as expected. You had seats moving (a seat group consisting of four seats). Wind blowing, fog rising, water splashing and lighting flashing. During the combat scenes it was pretty nice. You had the seats moving with the kanmusu movements. When firing the vibrators in the seat shook and one got tapped in the back to simulate the shots (number of taps accurate with the firing on-screen). Light also flashed with the shots. Of course water was also sprayed when appropriate.

However, the ventilators providing the wind were rather loud. Wasn't much of an issue during the fight scenes, but when the wind blew during quieter scenes it was distracting.

All in all my personal opinion is, considering that a 4DX showing costs more than double that of a post-20:00 late showing (in Japan a post-20:00 showing costs like 1300 yen instead of 1800 yen regular price) I would say it's not really worth it (although I don't regret it). But of course right now there isn't much of a choice. The regular version is still showing, but it's in small theatres not exactly in convenient locations. At least the theatre was quite big with a huge screen.

Thanks to Kakurin-san for linking the theatre listing, caught the movie in Sapporo. The loot is the same as Kakurin-san. The experience was nice, they had a smoke generating machine, but that only gave a small amount for the front, so I'm not sure what effect that was supposed to give. The moving of the seats correspond to the movement of the girls and the back massage:heh: thing with cannon fire. Didn't notice any smell though, maybe it was very faint.

Limited of course includes a couple of additional goodies, but the main difference from what I get is that the limited edition includes the "Type 17" disc as opposed to the "Type 16" theatre release.

That's how the cover and contents of the Limited Edition will look like:

https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/71qzRXfjmKL._SL1280_.jpg

The white disc is the "Type 16" disc which has the original theatre version. Meanwhile the blue disc is the "Type 17" disc including the additional cuts.

Release date is this coming Wednesday. Amazon lists the expected delivery date as between 2nd and 4th September. I hope they'll make it on Saturday the 2nd. :heh:

I assume you mean the Japanese Amazon? Because I can neither find it on the German nor the UK one. :/


That being said, I hope they'll sell the blue disk separately at some point :heh:

This isn't supposed to be an international release, so of course it isn't listed in a non JP amazon branch. There might be later if a shop sell it as an import product, which will probably has its price inflated as result.

Is it known whether there are english subtitles?


Issue for me is:
Last time I bought an import product our dear austrian customs office had the glorious idea of asking for customs, despite it having been sent from within the EU(UK -> Austria to be specific) ...
If they do that, they include the shipping cost when calculating whether customs apply. So in the end I might end up saving money by checking if Amazon would ship it to here.

Alternatively I could buy a month of Amazon.jp Prime,hope the Blue Disk is on prime too, and that there are no regional restrictions...
Tbh I actually only want the version with the additional scenes - no need for the goodies. :heh:

This is the limited edition, haven't looked but there must be a regular edition too who only has the movie.

The series of Kancolle was licensed by Funimation so probably we will get an international release of the movie too but as now haven't seen any news about that yet.

JP BD/DVD with english subtitles are extremely rare when it comes to anime. It should be indicated on the official movie website, but I'm pretty sure there isn't any english subs for that release.

Not like it is required for Kancolle anyway.

On the (Japanese) Amazon's description the availability of English (and other language) subtitles was outright stated. This is not the case for Kancolle, thus I assume that it will be a standard release with no English subs.

Diomedea doesn't have any history of releasing it's content with English subs so that won't happen with Kancolle either. Indeed, releases with English subs are extremely rare so far I have only seen Sunrise doing it a lot.

I just managed to watch it.

The quickest way to summarize it was that the beginning was stronger than the ending ... but then, so's the TV anime. Everything started off making sense and 8th Fleet's combat actually had a sequence. For the grand finale by the end it was sequenceless, just random shots of closeups of kanmusus using their weapons...

Any idea what was added in the blu ray?
For the 17 version of the Limited Edition? Around 3 minutes of additional cuts. No voiced scenes, but here and there a couple of scenes, especially in the combat parts of the second half, to flesh them out a bit and give a bit more context. Haven't managed to identify them all though.


- Extension of the scene with Kisaragi on the cliff after the departure of the fleet.
- A cut with CarDiv2 following Shōkaku radioing them after they successfully drew the attention of the Abyssal Kidō Butai
- A cut with the first fleet at dusk after conclusion of the battle against the Abyssal Kidō Butai, with repairs being conducted by the fairies followed by Kongō and Haruna departing for IBS

So I took time watching the movie twice, and I can say it is definitely a good anime rendition of the franchise. Not perfect, mind you, but that definitely addressed a lot of issues from the original series.

The most important changes that helped a lot the movie were clearly the direction and pacing.
The movie doesn't feel like a drag and actually use proper transitions between scenes and actual plot parts here. The fact they mainly focused on a more serious tone also nullified the very odd dissonance of mood back in the initial series.

OTOH, it still had some issues: There were a lot of girls this time around, but a lot of them didn't have any dialogues. it is kind of understandable considering it would clutter the movie pacing too much, but some characters like Furutaka had more presence than others like Tone/Chikuma, yet had nearly no dialogues whatsoever.

Also, It is a pity they didn't have 15-30 extra minutes to explore a bit more about the all out fights left and right.
For instance, it is kind of sad they hinted a huge carriers confrontation against a Kuubo Seiki, yet they didn't show anything at all. Same could be said for Nagato's fleet that was supposed to act as their last rampart.

Thankfully the fights in general were fine, with very rare moments in 3DCGI (or at least, most of them weren't that obvious), although a bit too short. For instance, I think it would have been more interesting for the second fleet to reach the center of Iron Bottom Sound together instead of splitting twice.

As for the conclusion of the movie... I'm a bit conflicted about it.
They did a good job for the majority of the movie not to shove Fubuki too much on the spotlight while having a proper balance in term of character distribution, but it is specifically because of such presentation that having Fubuki saving the day as "the symbol of hope" is kind of pushing it a bit too much... at the same time, it does explain why she was so important but also kind of an enigma back in season 1 (no combat experience, yet was transferred in that naval base and being put on the frontline by the admiral).

Speaking of fixing S1 issue, having a confirmation regarding the Kanmusu/Abyssal relationship sure helps and make sense with the franchise as a whole, more particularly with the game (which was already hinted in the game with princesses transitioning into their kanmusu self). This is the very reason why I wasn't surprised they had someone sunk in the first season and teased something about it.
That being said, the movie really came way too late as it works mainly as a sequel, so having to wait for 2 years really didn't do any favor to the first season whatsoever. It could really have been better if the plot part of the movie was a second cour, but it would have been awkward for the pacing and presentation.

To be honest, I wish the movie had Kisaragi as the real boss, but already transformed in her abyssal version. From there, they could have several skirmish against her and during the climax, they would have realized the whole truth and have a more reasonable message about the girls' raison d'Ítre instead of having only 1 girl being the savior.

Anyways, I hope the second season will follow the movie's lead, assuming it wasn't cancelled.

I also agree on that. and that Mutsuki has to be the one that mercy kills Kisaragi. Because the majority of the movie has her denying the fact that Kisaragi has "fallen"

I agree that the movie would've benefitted from another additional 15 minutes or so. Seeing where and what they added in most of the new cuts for the 17 version I tend to think that they would've preferred a bit more time to show more of the other battles themselves. On the other hand, with the running time of the movie being at it is I'm glad that they didn't fall for the temptation of trying to show everything for it would've been way too chaotic with the limited time. As it stands they focused the attention on the surface engagement of the IBS strike force with the KB part shown being the "necessary" part for the success of the surface operation.

As for the conclusion of the movie... I'm a bit conflicted about it.
They did a good job for the majority of the movie not to shove Fubuki too much on the spotlight while having a proper balance in term of character distribution, but it is specifically because of such presentation that having Fubuki saving the day as "the symbol of hope" is kind of pushing it a bit too much... at the same time, it does explain why she was so important but also kind of an enigma back in season 1 (no combat experience, yet was transferred in that naval base and being put on the frontline by the admiral).
I think because they kept Fubuki a bit aside in the combat parts the scene on the bottom of the IBS works for me because it didn't strike me really as her saving the day. It's already been well-established that she, for some reason, is special (and not just because she's the first tokugata DD) and this sort of closes the circle, so I wasn't particularly bothered by her being an existence that was saved by the combined emotions and hopes of the ones sunk in the IBS.

To be honest, I wish the movie had Kisaragi as the real boss, but already transformed in her abyssal version. From there, they could have several skirmish against her and during the climax, they would have realized the whole truth and have a more reasonable message about the girls' raison d'Ítre instead of having only 1 girl being the savior.
I actually prefer the choice the staff made regarding Kisaragi as turning into an Abyssal compared to already being an Abyssal boss that is to be fought as enemy. It reduces the emotional distance by having the issue at the forefront and opens up more angles, which in my opinion are a bit limited in a Kisaragi-as-established-boss scenario. I also think it was a pretty intelligent move slotting in Kaga as a former sunk kanmusu / Abyssal carrier, expanding a bit on her background.

What I have mixed feelings about is Kisaragi's participation in the final battle. It's a bit too... generic? A scenario with a rogue Kisaragi, wanting to help out, but struggling to maintain control over herself, would've been more interesting. But such a scenario may have diverted the focus too much.

The movie addresses the plot point why Fubuki is special ever since the first season, but I'm still not exactly convinced how they played out that part because "Abyssal Fubuki" was practically a sitting duck outside of spreading that corrosive element in the sea.
While it works in term of "message", the way how it was concluded felt a bit too close on the cheesy pep talk that converts the big bad in the very end. This is why it really feels like Fubuki is saving the day because there wouldn't be anyone else who could have stopped IBS phenomenom on the long run.

It depends how they will handle Fubuki later on, but I honestly hope her "special" trait was mostly for that sector alone, otherwise the whole corrosion stuff would be too much of a convenient plot device for Fubuki if she happens to be able to ignore the "red sea" in other areas.


That's why I think using Kisaragi as the final boss right from the start would have brought more emotional weight since it would affect Fubuki, but also Mitsuki, Yuudachi and the rest to a certain extent.
At the very least, fighting an identified formed camarade would strengthen their raison d'etre and reinforce their solution to save everyone at the end of the day by preventing anyone from sinking.

This could also have an interesting correlation with event bosses being the direct cause of the corrosion and having cleansed the Kanmusu would lead to a complete stop to that phenomenom in the affected area.

This is why it really feels like Fubuki is saving the day because there wouldn't be anyone else who could have stopped IBS phenomenom on the long run.

The one thing that bothers me a bit about how the whole thing was resolved is the portrayal that this Abyssal Fubuki was somehow located in some vortex/black hole, which opens up the question if anyone else than Fubuki could've reached the place where she was. I think some more "normal" form of sea / mist etc. would've done it too. In addition, they should've made more use of the fact that both used to be part of the original Fubuki that got separated after she sank at IBS.

It depends how they will handle Fubuki later on, but I honestly hope her "special" trait was mostly for that sector alone, otherwise the whole corrosion stuff would be too much of a convenient plot device for Fubuki if she happens to be able to ignore the "red sea" in other areas.

I'm actually hoping that if there will be a second anime season that we'll get a new main character. Think they found a solid conclusion for the Fubuki "arc" and should move on. But yeah, if Fubuki would now be able to travel other corrupted areas without damage it would be senseless since in this specific case it was directly tied to her from the beginning to the end.

That's why I think using Kisaragi as the final boss right from the start would have brought more emotional weight since it would affect Fubuki, but also Mitsuki, Yuudachi and the rest to a certain extent.
At the very least, fighting an identified formed camarade would strengthen their raison d'etre and reinforce their solution to save everyone at the end of the day by preventing anyone from sinking.
Well yeah, but the thing is, how they are going to reach her, then followed by a gradual realization, then followed by more combat to end/save her, a good amount of development would be needed. Sounds more like something for a longer running TV anime than a time-limited movie edition. Especially with the realization part, considering they can't just make Abyssal Kisaragi openly talk about it, like they did with Abyssal Fubuki.

This could also have an interesting correlation with event bosses being the direct cause of the corrosion and having cleansed the Kanmusu would lead to a complete stop to that phenomenom in the affected area.
This was actually what I was thinking about considering how after you clear an event map in the game the red colour dissipates and the map returns to normal colour.

I guess I was a bit biased due to the usual fan fictions etc, but depictions seen in works like Kiga-A (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNlKwoyVfFQ) looks plausible if you spread that plot part on several skirmishes.

For instance, if Abyssal Kisaragi wouldn't remember anything and went berserk like how it was for Kaga, I would expect Mutsuki and the others to notice that over time (for instance, using some gear/clothes remnants noticeable only in the middle of the movie, with the early part not visible due to night battle setup). Later on, more interactions could potentially lead to "static noise" flashbacks to Kisaragi, giving an opportunity to knock some sense before sinking her? Sounds too generic/classic but it is still reasonable, unlike Kisaragi saving the day and being cleansed offscreen...

But yeah, at this point, they should move out with another base or leading character. Someone like Akizuki, Samidare or Yukikaze.
And speaking of Yukikaze, I'm a bit baffled they picked Tokitsukaze, especially they could have Yukikaze taking part of the nightmare of Solomon sequence or even have some spotlight as a duo with Yamato.

It is not impossible to do, but it'd require a careful handling to have a plausible depiction, though it partly will also depend in which main direction they'd want to take the Abyssal-Kanmusu cycle. Seems to me like they decided to go the route where a sunk-kanmusu-turned-abyssal will act purely by the instinct of wanting to "return", which would make interactions rather tough. It is one part of the reason why I thought the inclusion of Kisaragi as saving the day for Mutsuki and then fighting alongside her was too simplistic and rough. Especially since they specifically mentioned and showed her to lose her consciousness and act out of control in the early part of the movie. As I mentioned before, it would have been a more interesting angle in my opinion to have her save Mutsuki, but really struggle maintaining control, sort-of acting as a rogue third party whose sanity is only maintained by the thread of her connection to Mutsuki. Though the danger would be that it could possible divert away too much of the focus. Speaking of focus, if they wanted to wrap-up a "Fubuki-arc" it would have been a bit tough to mesh with a Kisaragi-as-boss enemy scenario where battling/defeating her leads to the Kanmusu-Abyssal cycle realization due to the development requirements.

But yeah, at this point, they should move out with another base or leading character. Someone like Akizuki, Samidare or Yukikaze.
And speaking of Yukikaze, I'm a bit baffled they picked Tokitsukaze, especially they could have Yukikaze taking part of the nightmare of Solomon sequence or even have some spotlight as a duo with Yamato.
I guess the decision came about as a mixture between a historical-ish fleet and wanting to include Amatsukaze. Tokitsuzake and Amatsukaze formed DesDiv16 and acted as screens for Ryūjō at Eastern Solomons and the new CarDiv1 at Santa Cruz.

IT's been a while since I've watched the first season. Have there been some ships that got the Kai Ni treatment in this movie that didn't happen in the show? I don't remember Sendai and co. looking like that in S1.

Infinite Zenith

I think they have: Fubuki's rocking her Kai Ni upgrades now. I found it a modestly enjoyable (https://infinitemirai.wordpress.com/2017/09/04/kantai-collection-the-movie-review-and-reflection/) movie overall, even if the narrative isn't the most solid.

Klashikari
2017-09-04, 19:52
Fubuki had her kai ni in the first season, but the design wasn't accurate enough, probably because her anime design was completed before the game design was introduced.

We got kai ni for the following ships:
Kanmusu from the first season:
-Hiryuu
-Souryuu
-Ryuujou
-Mutsuki
-Hiei
-Sendai
-Jintsuu
-Naka
-Haruna
-Kirishima
-Nachi
-Hashigara
-Haguro
-Myoukou
-Tone
-Chikuma
-Kisaragi

New kanmusu with their kai ni out of the box
-Kakko
-Furutaka
-Choukai
-Kinugasa
-"Aoba" (most likely not canon. Her rigging in the movie is based on Kinugasa kai ni AFAIK, even though they aren't of the same class)
-Ayanami

Her K2 was added the day after the first episode aired, which would've given them more than enough time to actually get her K2 uniform in when the episode in question came.

I think they gave her the proper equipment but kept her original uniform was because her K2 uniform was based on a repaint of the ship done just prior to the Solomon Islands campaign, and the anime only covered up to Midway, so her having her original uniform would be correct.

Klashikari
2017-09-05, 03:25
Actually, CG for a game doesn't require to be done far in advance compared to their release, whereas anime production require preparations at least 6-8 months prior the initial release. As such, if they already prepared that design in the anime production before Shibafu was done for the game, then it is a no go.

Scarletknive
2017-09-08, 13:09
I would agree with HashiriyaR32 to a large extent, but not completely

They followed history mostly except for the twists that changes the fate of some ships in Midway, which occurred before Solomon Islands campaign. Hence, having her in her usual uniform would be correct. Had they followed her actual K2 design, it would be 'historically' wrong. (Since Kancolle anime (S1) is based mostly on history.)

But as Klashikari said, anime production requires quite some time prior to the release to design her K2, while in-game CGs requires a short period to do so. Who knows, maybe Shibafu haven't thought of how to draw Fubuki's K2 and the anime production went on doing it.

Heck, even Kisaragi's K2 design is different from the game (Her jacket is a hoodie, and her ribbon is of a different design.)

Well, technically because she is NOT at K2 at all, but it's Kisaragi-Damaged 2 (改 and 壊...
which is used on certain Abyssals.)

Speaking of which, when can we have her on our side? I bet her stats are very good. :heh:
