Kantai Collection -KanColle- (generic discussion thread)

Welcome to the general discussion for the anime series Kantai Collection -KanColle-.

In order to ensure a proper discussion environment, please follow these additional guidelines.

-Do not discuss anything related to the game, unless it is for references sake and/or answer a quick question regarding a very specific occurence in the anime. For furher discussion/inquiry about the game, the game thread is for such purpose.

-Please avoid posting multiples pictures that has no direct connection to what has been going on in the anime. Please use the social group instead.

-As a reminder, the game is currently boasting a huge cast of 147 characters (not including alternate forms), and as such, it is arguably not possible to show all of them.
While the anime studio already stated there will be around 30-40 characters, they will show several characters at once, as giving focus to each of them would disrupt the flow of the series.
As such, please do not make any comment about certain characters not being there, or having very minimal screentime.

-Finally, please do not start meta discussions and other subjects that are very loosely tied to the franchise: you are free to comment and explain few points that are directly related to what happened during the Pacific War, but you aren't allowed to derail the topic with discussion about WWII or anything that is remotely connected to the setup.
For the same reason, do not start technical and ship discussions. Theses are needlessly lengthy and not really pertinent.

Some digests:

Quote:

-> Series organization: Tanaka P (original creator)

- Main character will be Fubuki
- Using Fubuki's POV.
- Will be mainly about Fubuki's growth.
- If possible, will be using the same voice actresses for the anime

There's a question I'd like to ask my fellow anime fans, and this thread seems like a good one to ask it in.

What exactly is Kantai Collection? I've noticed in my fairly regular anime image searches that this is incredibly popular. General searches for "yuri" increasingly brings up a lot of girls connected to this property (though there's such a variety in the girls it brings up that I'm wondering if this is the next Saki or something )

It's a bit disconcerting for a big anime fan like myself to know virtually nothing about something that appears to be the "next big thing" in anime. So any info that others can provide here would be much-appreciated.

Kantai Collection is basically a browser game involving moe anthropomorphic version of naval warships from the Pacific War (and pretty much like Arpeggio, since they are "she", there are only girls in there... also for "business/practical" reasons).
The whole point of the game is to manage your fleet as the admiral, by making expeditions/sorties and tune your ships with modernization and what not.

You don't really have any active role during battle, as the combat mechanics are determined by your ships stats, and a lot of RNG at work. Suffice to say, the fleet composition, supply and equipments are very important, which you have full control of it before sortie.

The primary reason for such popularity is that you have a plethora of seiyuu at work (mainly: Toyama Nao, Fujita Saki, Ayane Sakura, Iguchi Yuuka, etc), as well as lots of colorful characters that are hardly clones of each other.
The staff also replicated some real stuff from the pacific war, even putting nods/jokes about that so it also attract military (or rather navy) otaku.
quick example: Kaga, the 1st division aircraft carrier, doesn't like Shoukaku and Zuikaku from the 5th division, because these 2 weren't present during the Battle of Midway, in which Kaga, Akagi, Souryuu and Hiryuu sunk. Afterwards, the 5th division inherited the 1st division title.

Another important point is that, should a ship is sunk, similarly to Fire Emblem series, you -cannot- retrieve her, and there is no way to revive them. Of course, you can craft/drop another copy of the fallen kanmusu (assuming they are available with such means), but you will have to grind them from scratch (be it level or equipement).
Due to their personalities and that important matter, the game naturally make players care about their ships.

Adding the fact the game is easy to grasp (easy control without the need of babysitting a smartphone every 5-10 minutes) along with a big collection to get with little to no paid content requirement, you have a very successful formula.

It pretty much is the current major trend to the point it reaches Touhou's popularity, hence why you see it nearly everywhere. For instance, Googling a japanese warship will most likely give you a kancolle image result pretty quickly.
The funniest part would be the aftermath of c85, as there are just tons of kancolle centred doujinshi planned for it, most notably on Shimakaze.

So found these translated lyrics to the OP song, and have to say they fit incredibly well...

So repeat it, we won't regret a bit
For we remain valiant, no matter the circumstances
Our aspirations, our adventures, and our future
Paired with our despair, our differences, and our losses
We'll overcome any enemy in the sea that gets in our way

Even if this world drowns in a palette of sea-blue
Surely, you'd call out to us, saying
"It's going to be alright, so let's go home"
And if everything refuses to go as planned,
We'll still face them together, by your side

Blow them all up, with the force of our will!

She's living like a flagship, but it's all in the past
She never gave up hope even till the end, only the sea knows

So even if we shatter, we'll never forget
Take a peek into our hearts, and you'll see!

So foolish, don't repeat the tragedy
We will not make the same mistakes
Sparkling, brimming with hope under the blue sky,
Tasting utter defeat, facing an eternal slumber, deep beneath
Please save the tears and move on

And even if I were to vanish, fragmenting into the past,
Surely, I'll always be in your heart
Assuring you, that tomorrow will be better
And so when I'm eventually forced to leave your side,
Please cherish our moments we spent together,
And resonate, we shall, as an entire fleet!


Romaji:
Asa no hikari mabushikute, Wake up!

Kotoba mo nakute, tada nami no oto kiiteta

So repeat it, we won't regret a bit

Kanji
朝の光眩しくて、Wake up!

言葉もなくて、ただ波の音聞いてた
記憶の意味試されているみたいに
闇の中でも思い出す
前に進むの、見ていてよ!

So repeat it, we won't regret a bit
そんな風にも輝いていたの
憧れ,抜錨、未来、
絶望、喪失、別離
いくつもの悲しみと海を越え

例え世界のすべてが海色に溶けても
きっと、あなたの声がする
「大丈夫、帰ろう」って言っても
世界がすべて反転しているのなら
それでもあなたと真っ直ぐに前を見ていて

今願い込めた一撃、爆ぜた!

She's living like a flagship, but it's all in the past
She never gave up hope even till the end, only the sea knows

だから胸潰されても忘れない
こじ開けるの、見ていてよ!

So foolish, don't repeat the tragedy
そんな言葉にすっかりはしない
煌めき、青空、希望
敗北、水底、眠り
いくつもの涙の海を超え

例え私のすべてが過去に消えても
ずっと、きっとともにあるって
いつの日か変われるって言っても
私がすべて幻だとしたら、そう
それでもあなたと奇跡のようこの時に
今祈り込めた一撃,響け!

I didn't really hear it all that well from the camrip that I saw earlier, but having seen the episode properly now...

I WANT THAT OST

Compared to my impressions with the camrip, it was pretty much the same: good balance and the likes.

I was surprised they asked Sakakibara (Seiyuu for Kasei in Psycho Pass) to handle the narration at the start: it makes it quite grimdark, especially when you have Wo, Ru and Ri class lurking around on screen

In general, I would say the CGI were way more noticeable, but not to the point of being obnoxious. They sure permuted several sequences in 2D then in 3D, but it isn't as bothering as how it was in Love Live.

Similarly to LoweGear, the scores used are pretty good with nice orchestral notes. Quite fitting for the battle sequences. I'm however surprised they didn't put some game rearrange for sake of reference, but who knows if they will do that later.

I will probably make a list of the characters shown onscreen with links to their game profile, as I assume some people will have hard time to figure who is who as well as their class.
Spoiler for Episode 1: characters appearance:


Spoiler for Abyssal Fleet ships:

Good idea. As someone coming into the franchise from the anime, I have no idea who 90% of the girls who just showed up in the first episode are. Then again, I did pretty much the same for IM@S and Love Live so I think I can handle it

The only ones I recognized on sight were Kongou, Shimakaze and Naka

For someone who doesn't know the game (and doesn't want to, since it's the kind of game I completely dislike - and not for the character designs or the concept) it looked entertaining. Its massive cast is going to be its biggest problem though, even if the studio said the focus is on a smaller set of characters.

Done. We have 42 characters (regardless if they have some lines or not), and that's not counting the enemies. I will probably add a seperate list for that.

Details:
Characters with dialogues (even 1 single word): 31
Cameos: 11
Seiyuu with the most characters to dub in this episode: Sakura Ayane (8 characters: Nagato, Mutsu, Kuma, Tama, Sendai, Jintsuu, Naka, Shimakaze)

As another trivia: Yuudachi's poi count in this ep is... 16
