Set in a world where humanity has lost control of the oceans to the "deep sea fleet," the only hope to counter this threat are the Kanmusu, a group of girls who possess the spirit of Japanese warships. The story revolves around Fubuki, a destroyer who comes to the Chinjufu base to train with other Kanmusu. Watch as their stories unfold!

If you're looking for a new anime to watch this isn't the one , unless you like moe ship girls.
From my POV this anime is merely a fan service anime for people who happen to play and enjoy Kancolle -like myself- but its NOT the ecchi kinda of fan service .

The anime focus on showing the life of the ship girls in battle and mostly outside of battle , having Fubuki as the main character in school like environment.

sadly the story barely make any sense , there is no clear sign where things are going or whats the grand goal behind all of this. read more

Most people who came across this probably thinks this is one of the worst first episodes they have ever seen. The game lines reference is overused and everything seems to be so out of place and has no flow.

They obviously set out to make this anime aimed at those who played the game which they just did that. So if you aren't a fan of kancolle this anime is not for you, simply because the anime is targeted at those who are playing the game and not for casual anime viewers.

Now should you watch Kancolle? The answer is simple,if you are one of the read more

Kantai Collection: KanColle is an anime adaptation of relatively well known web-game about "girls possessed with the spirit of WW2 Japanese warships battling against the aliens known as deep sea fleet". If you ask me, it's probably Shinto touched (with whole spirit thing) analogy for WW2 from Japanese point of view where they were good guys, Germans were allies and rest of the world were aliens, but what I can know? Show literally makes zero sense to anyone without a deep knowledge of the source material. Even first sentence of this very review requires a heavy assistance from Google and/or MAL just to be put read more

this anime made for everyone who have enjoy the game and for anyone who still new for this fandom so they can easy follow it up as a new series.
I think they have a good sound and a good opening theme and the story so far are average it just remind me with strike witche, vividred, and etc,
but I hope they will add up some history about these ship girl like in which kind of event they sunk or such like that and I think more action element must be added in this anime, I mean come on you have a huge gun make read more

A group of girls based off of or using historical world war 2 weaponry (in Kancolle's case, naval, in Strike Witches', aviation) to battle a mysterious threat with an unknown goal.
I get the same feeling watching both even though the settings and plots are different. They both have cute girls enrolled in a special school who are making friends and being carefree (for the most part). And both shows have a few serious/sad moments but overall they are lighthearted, fun, and easy to watch.
World War 2 theme, in kancolle Japanese battleship becomes moe schoolgirls (what more can you ask?) fighting against monster ships, and slice of life of boats. Girls Und Panzer is about moe girls driving highly detailed ww2 tanks fighting against other tanks. Both of them feature slice of life, comedy, and action. Perfect for military otaku
Both anime are based on video games with a large all-girls cast. The plot revolves around battle and conflict with a rival faction or group of enemies. In KanColle, the girls are incarnations of battleships and participate in naval fights. Whereas in Senran Kagura, the fight is between Light and Dark shinobi (ninja) - fanservice present.
Both have a similar setting. In Kancolle it is about Aliens (Abyssal Fleet) invading mankind, in Arpeggio mysterious ships suddenly appear and impose a worldwide threat towards mankind. In the case of Arpeggio girls control their own ships and fight, while in Kancolle Kanmusu (Fleet girls) are able to walk/fly on water, with body attachments and names based on real-life vessels. Both deal with the war and both are about ships saving humanity from the abyssal fleet or the fog fleet.

P.S Arpeggio of Blue Steel makes an appearance in Kancolle (game).
Spirits of old (warships for Kancolle, historical figures for Nobunagun) are reincarnated as people in the modern world as the only means of defense to fight against aliens that come from the ocean
