The first year anniversary event for the cellphone game Azur Lane held on Saturday has announced that the game will receive a TV anime. Main staff members have been revealed.

Synopsis
Azur Lane is a military alliance formed to fight against a grotesque enemy called Sirens, which suddenly appeared in the seas and threatens humanity with overwhelming strength. Although the success of the warships made it possible to temporarily stop the attack of Sirens, differences in ideals have surfaced among the camps involved in the creation of the alliance. With each camp advancing their own motive, the girls confront an unprecedented enemy they have never faced before.

Staff
Director: Tenshou (Rewrite)
Series Composition: Jin Haganeya (Guilty Crown script)
Studio: Bibury Animation Studio

Azur Lane is a cellphone game, which is a collaboration from Chinese web companies Manjuu Co. Ltd. and Yongshi Co. Ltd., and streamed via video streaming website Bilibili since May of last year in China. It has been available in Japan via Yostar since September of last year, and in Korea via X.D. Global since March 27. It will be available in English this fall. The game title reads Bilan Hangxian in Chinese. The game is a shooting game, which controls warships. A PS4 game version, Azur Lane: Crosswave, has also been announced. A manga adaptation titled Azur Lane: Queen's Orders by Tsuchii (Girls & Panzer: Comic Anthology) has been announced to serialize via Comic REX magazine.

well, let's see how far this one can goes...

I understand ripping off successful game but why rip off atrocious failure of an anime as well... I wonder how Chinese this anime will be though. I couldn't get past the first episode of any so far. There's just something incredibly dull about them it makes me loose interest after few minutes and go back to staring into void.

On a side note, looking at the character design in the game it will be a massive pedobait so I guess it will sell anyway...

I am actually interested how this one will go mainly because from what I got, the story's missions don't really have much of a base, so they might have to do it from scratch just like how they did it with KanColle due to not having a story to go and make out of.

Though admittedly while I can see why people can call this a mix-bag, I do think Tensho can do a decent job at it imo. My only gripe is the script writer due to the person being... there? Idk.

Can't take your posts seriously with such a cringeworthy nickname...
That's a silly way to judge a show.

Not to mention I don't think a fanservice based mobile game is supposed to be taken seriously in the first place

Well, the news came a bit late to MAL, but okay...

Anyway, it was from miles far to smell that Azure as well an adaptation gets: like they lastly (past few months) with hints/teasers about it "bombarded" had in the nets.

Hmm... After the graphic and the plot to judge: this could be really for KanColle dangerious - though, I looking nevertheless for it. This could be really epic.

Of course, everything got an anime these days. This is mostly to promote the game so one shouldn't expect it to be anything more than that.

Nice to see that Bibury Animation Studio have another project right after Grisaia, even tho that didnt even start yet. The designs look good from what I can make out in the PV. The biggest news that came out of it is that Tenshou will be directing it at his own studio. He is great at pooling a ton of talented animators into his shows. With decent script-writing to take all the game's content, I am excited to see how this will fair up. With a Nitroplus staff on the series composition we are in safe hands.

Funny how ppl who don't know how prolific these staff members are automatically dismiss a show. Look if your not the target market don't cry because it doesn't cater to your niche generic western taste.

Iether way, never heard of Azur Lane, but if we get new waifu's, sure thank you I guess?

Not really expecting much from it so I'll just enjoy the shipgirls getting animated. I know it's the same as KC and the game that the girls will be gliding in water to fight but seeing some ships in the PV and Hood somehow equipping the big ship makes me hope there's some real ship battle at first like in Arpeggio. Sort of a mix between the two in that there's some real ship battles at first with the girls on top of their own models before transforming to getting equips in their side to have those water gliding battles. That would make me happy even if the story would suck.

Kancolle chinese ripoff gets an anime adaption. Why cant Chinese people have originality. (Games are the same, actually 3 games are the same. So to those who shill for Azur Lane, it isnt better than kancolle.)
Yeah right there is no way a doujin about vomit exists.

I'm hyped for this even though mobage adaptations always end up being subpar (*cough*Bandori*cough). Been playing the game since the ENG beta and it's been a whole lot of fun.

The only similarity they share is that they both involve anthropomorphic ship girls. I've played both and their difference in gameplay is like night and day.

I am super biased in favor of its genre, but from what I've seen the general consensus is that Uma Musume turned out pretty good, thanks to P.A. Works staff's handling of the game's ridiculous committee-conceived trend-mashup concept. An anime equivalent of MythBusters' "polished turd" dorodango.

Not expecting any such surprise here, of course, but I've been wanting an Azur Lane show for a while based solely on the fanart. :D

People have cited? Based on your wording, you've either only played one of these games or neither of em.

I want to check out the PS4 game, it looks ok and it's something that Kancolle didn't do. I have no interest in the mobile game though and I'm not sure if it's a good idea to watch this one without playing it. Of course if the PS4 game releases before the anime, I'll watch it, otherwise I'll have to pass on it.

No? Not really?

KanColle is mostly RNG based entirely, where as Azur Lane you don't rely on RNG with the battle system. .-.

I was seeing this game ads too much in every media such as Youtube, FB, or from google playstore ads section. So i assumed that game is terrible, because they put almost of their money for promote the game instead developing the game. And now they tried with anime adaptation?

Sorry guys, i'm not interested

When you don't have better argument other than "Chinese ripoff" , then yes you are Sinophobia.
-EDIT-
LOL! The gameplay is not the same RNG you moron. In KanColle, you got no control over during campaigns and battle while in Azur Lane, you can control the characters/ships during battle. Good job showing your stupidity.

This other people don't play it and only make because both have anthropomorphic ship girls. Your opinion of phone app is irrelevant, it's popular enough in Japan that Japanese game developers going to make it to PS 4.

That... doesn't debunk anything though. You can't use other people's opinions as means of a rebuttal or a counter-point because at the end of the day that point goes nowhere. Or at least as a response to a consensus.

Then again as far as I can tell the consensus likes Azur Lane but even then I'm not going to pull that card up my own ass.

Though people that HAVE played the game are arguing against you, so there's that. (I'm not one of them, I've only checked the gameplay from few places and they are nothing alike aside from the characters being ship girls, and that's just on paper). If your only point is that they're a ripoff because it has RNG then that doesn't solidify your case here. If anything you're just making a fool out of yourself with your case and why you think it's bad.

Which is a poor reason. Maybe on the sole basis it's not bad but when people question it then there's something up here.

All I know about this game is that it's a Chinese co-produced KanColle rip-off with different gameplay. But since it has come this far, I'm kinda interested in the game. Is it worth playing?
