It was quite half half indeed.
Besides Hibiki's, Kaga saying ここは譲れません twice was quite shoehorned. At least, other quotes like Yuudachi's or Naka's worked well.

Hopefully, they won't do that for the introductions next week, or it will be really awkward

Now I know why fanartists show the Anchorage Princess looking so sad after the advance screening However, it's quite possible that Kongou and Hiei (+ Akagi's torpedo) had breached her defenses enough to allow a well-dropped bomb do its work (her barrier seems to be cracked before she went on the offensive). The ease with which the 1st CarDiv blows everything out of the water does make me question the need for the other fleets though.
I might be mistaken but it looks like they used the Type 91 Armor-Piercing Shells, which is known for its armor/defense piercing effect.

You really should try playing the game. It's a casual game where you can play bit by bit during your casual time. It's pretty simple to get in actually.

In a less flattering note, I'm pretty certain they screwed up a bit Shoukaku's first scene. She is first seen with her deck on her back (why not on her right arm?), but the very moment she fires her arrow, the deck completely vanished.
It is obvious it isn't on her arm: as when she finishes her motion, there is nothing visible around her shoulder or arm.

I first thought they screwed up Kirishima and Hiei's armaments until I saw them transforming into their quad cannon mode...

Before this I completely thought they were in their quad cannon mode from the start due to their original illustration (most people did including fan artists)

Upon closer inspection, the deck is first on her right arm, then on her back and then gone.

I had a bit of difficulty processing all of this at first because my brain kept bringing up Arpeggio until I managed to press my Strike Witches switch again...

Hmm... Surreal!
In overall, I was able to get the idea that this is going to be a story of Fubuki's growth?
But as far as the content goes, CG and lines like parties and harasho being so random (I assume they are just reciting lines from the game?) are a bit... meh. It wasn't really bad, but the only time I really reacted to the anime was whenever the girls started water-skiing, which was... pretty funny.
That said, at least it doesn't make me want to smack my head on my desk as the other new animes have done so far.

...Well, I can't see what made this content so popular. Must have a good marketing/internet staff or something. *shrug* Oh, and if that eyecatch's artwork was from the game, then damn, the artwork sucks compared to the anime...

After watching the first episode, I am under the impression that this series is targeted solely to game players. Don't know if I am either willing or able to keep track of such huge cast.

I came away thinking that the first episode of this new anime series was dull and unimaginative. The characters seemed to be generic and the setting unnecessary. Wondering if this is going to be like Touhou with folks who like the game liking the anime and folks who don't play the game are left saying, "WUT?!?"

I'll close the door quietly on my way out.

AFAIK the game makes you care about your characters because if the sink, they are gone for real.


The artwork is a collection of different artists btw.

A combination from a wide variety of girls with different personalities, a sinking aspect that forces you to care for your girls, the voice acting within the game and so forth. As for the artwork, there are different artists at work, so the generalisation isn't really helpful. Some art are "meh", some are really good. But yeah, I'm no friend of Fubuki in the game, a major reason being that the artwork isn't really up to my taste.

Here's a little taste of the artwork of three other artists:

Great first episode. The only thing that bugged me a little bit was the CG, but it was better than I was expecting. Wo looked badass.

The load out scene was awesome. Reminded me of Gundam.

Tons of Poi & Fubuki! Good balance between SoL & Action.

So the praise was all real! Good first episode indeed. The launch sequence was awesome! So nice to see them all finally animated....Fubuki was so cute. I feel a little bad now for those times I have neglected her for long periods...

I WANT THAT OST
The OST is a lot better than I expected, which is great. Helped set the mood for all the scenes imo. Can't wait to hear what else will be used.

Yeah didn't expect that either, I don't know if I could consider it a nice surprise though.

And was poi really spoken 16 times? Missed a few then if so...
Yay for Yuubari (somewhat distant) cameo too!

Charming, but...

That was quite enjoyable, and I found the characterisation of the girls pretty charming so far. It seems like it's going to be the story of Fubuki finding her feet and learning to excel in the fleet. That kind of story is one I find pretty fun, though I wish Fubuki had been a bit less clumsy on her first sortie.

One question for myself is whether the charming characters and plucky underdog story can overcome the humour-inducing (for me) aspect of young women water-skating around with guns/artillery/armour plates strapped to their sides. It mean the gearhead part of me won't be very satisfied, sadly.

Another question is whether we'll see interesting tactics in the anime. I haven't played the game, but I would assume that tactics and strategy take an important role in deploying your forces. Losses are permanent in game, I understand. I really hope we'll see a bit of a strategic element as the series goes on.

All in all, a charming show with a lot of potential. I really hope its positives can overcome my early reservations.

Actually, the game lacked a LOT of marketing for a good while and still gained 1M of users in less than 1 year.
The game is, as I explained in the early post of the threads, successful because of many elements put together in an interesting fashion.

Kadokawa actually "woke up" quite recently, and official goods only showed up 1 year after the game was put online, way after its peak of popularity. That's also why the anime feels like a "second wave" instead of actually sailing on the first popularity wave, since the anime is 3 months away of being broadcasted during the game 2nd anniversary.

As "surprising" as it might sound, strategy relies only on fleet composition, fleet equipments and formation used prior engaging a fight. The actual fight isn't controlled at all, which is one of the major RNG driven point of the game.

That said, they probably will have to put that in question since we will witness several fights later on.

The semi-standard three (or four) episode rule likely applies to those questioning if this will work or not.

i thought the cgi for the most part was pretty good looking compared to some of the other bad cases of it in other series.

I like it.
the suit up was fun to watch as well as the attacking.
