So I went to see the first show of opening day of the kancolle movie and I'd like to share my impressions of it.
now I'll try to be as spoiler free as possible but there may be some spoilers so be careful.
So the movie takes place at the Iron Bottom Sound and Fubuki and the gang led by Nagato (Teitoku is somewhere else) have to investigate the strange crimson sea of the iron bottom sound. Basically it's the battles of Solomon.
The movie also reveals secrets of the kanmusu and the abyssals and their relationship. They even show how drops work with the drop of a
certain kanmusu after a battle. The movie also shows why Fubuki is so important even though in actual history, she didn't really do anything great.
The animation was great with many of the new Kanmusu (Chokai, Tenryuu, Kako, Furutaka, Kinugasa, Aoba) having good parts in the action. Ships that didn't have much time to shine in action during the anime like Yuudachi and Yamato each had some great action scenes as well. There is also more much less of the Cg and everyone moved like how you expected them to move. Compared to the anime the action is much more fluid with many awesome scenes.
Many different Kanmusu have made cameos and if you listened carefully you could here them talking in the background in some scenes.
Now the story itself might be met with mixed reviews. I won't say anything about it but some people might not like certain events. The story is mainly quite serious with only bits of slice of life. I personally found the story to be quite interesting as it helped with concluding Fubuki's story.
Overall it was quite an enjoyable experience and I can safely recommend the movie to anyone who likes Kancolle. I also recommend people who didn't like the anime to watch this as it fixes a lot of problems the anime had.
There is literally, ONE! review for this movie! ONE! ...well, two now. Let's get started.
Kantai Collection -movie sequence- is a hour and a half long movie that should be watched after you watched the anime. Or played the games. Or both. Unless you're a big fan of KanColle, you probably won't be as attached to the movie as much as the guy beside me during the release over in Indonesia, but I digress.
Here is a review from a person who knows about KanColle and has (tried to) play the games.
Due to lack of synopsis, I shall add my own. It's really short though.
middle of a sortie, a fleet finds a fleetgirl emerge from a Abyssal, followed by strange noises coming from the sea. Admiral is slacking off, so everyone else has to find out what that is. Also, the sea now has the debuff of "Rust", gradually damaging all the KanColle girls who has the Fleet Girl title.
It's really simple. You can consider it to be a OVA. Go buy the ticket to support the creators. They deserve it.
As expected of a movie-budget anime + literally one of the most popular web games in Japan, everything in this show is pretty. Very much so. The crying emotion on the faces of (one) cast was really well made.
Also, as one who has watched (way) too many anime, I can tell you that the use of CG was really well done. You won't notice it unless you look for it (I did it subconsciosly, and it was using the same 3D filter as Soul Worker, so it's really good.)
Nothing special. I didn't really notice anything about it. It suited the situation but didn't really do much to add to the experience.
==Characters (Personal Rating: 7, Actual Rating: ???)
Did you watch the anime? Any number you give to the characters from the anime should be the same amount for the movie, since no one really developed from the anime. But we did learn that one girl never really got over a death(capsized). That was really sad to see.
Personally, It was okay. I mean, it's cool to pass the time but nothing I would really recommend to anyone unless they're a huge fan of KanColle. I expressed interest in the franchise, but that only got me so far. If I was watching this at home, I would've switched channels.
It's fine. Go buy a ticket to support the creators. Who knows? You might like it as well.
For many Dragon Ball fans, Master Roshi is an absolute legend! He's one of the coolest and most colorful characters in the Dragon Ball universe. However, this old man has a roaming eye that's easily distracted by the younger ladies, which can lead to more problems than simply a nosebleed.
The Kantai Collection, often shortened to KanColle, is a highly popular and exciting game filled with moe girls who are based on World War II naval ships. Lets take a look at why this game is so popular!
