despite that its CGI i heard it was praise good by the japanese viewers so this is not a surprise, its just milking the cash cow


It was good in spite of its animation, not because of its animation.

The MC of Arpeggio is a stone cold boss and carried the fuck out of what was basically a generic harem show.

Aoki Hagane is NOT a harem....

Not that brown-haired Takao ofc, but still Tsundere Takao xD

But.. but it'll be different from the manga
What to do.. What to do??

Kancolle x Arpeggio, when?
Already happened in KanColle game. Hopefully we'll get some OVA with characters from both shows.

Honestly... Just a what if question about your signature:

WHAT IF... You comment on a discussion thread and after some time it gets locked for X or Y reasons. You're comment would be invalid!

No conclusion to be made, but I thought it was a fun twist.

Motherfucker. It annoys me when they do this. Hopefully the second movie won't disappoint.

Because they actually have brains and know that there are people who didn't watch the TV series but are somewhat interested because of all the buzz around it. Recap movie gives producers a chance to attract a lot of new people to the franchise. With KanColle getting anime soon, there should be a lot more people interested in the concept of personified ships by the time Arpeggio airs. It isn't bad deal for old fans either as there will be new scenes and as a movie it should look better than what we got on TV and BDs.
Having two movies, one of which being recap is very smart decision.


You, sir, have won the internet. Couldn't have said it better myself.



Kancolle and Arpeggio are two different franchises that both thrive upon on another to spread the popularity of girls and ships, The first Arpeggio series took advantage of the rapid rise in ship girl popularity when it was on the rise last year and the Kancolle anime will now ride on the even more built up popularity that Ars Nova brought when it airs in the fall and These new movies will ride on the demand for more ship girls when Kancolle finishes airs.

They already have co-operated on several occasions and will continue to do so. Japan's Culture is heavily influenced with there navy culture and has always been that way, the very fact u are combining cute girls with navy ships is like taking 2 different culture interests and combining them to make something better at least as far as Japanese people are concerned .

I didn't see this coming to be honest o: Pleasantly surprised though, I really enjoyed Arpeggio even if the CG animation bugged me at first. Definitely looking forward to it uvu

A pleasant surprise! Those ship designs blew me away.

Nice. Now I can finally watch it. And stop reading the info dump of a manga that it is now ;z

At least it's a start - maybe they take care of the Red fleet in the movies, or they then lead into a new series. The news story is somewhat vague about what happens afterwards.

That being said, it's cool that more is coming, since, at least for me, it was by far the best Anime of the Spring 2013 season

Based on the sales numbers I was expecting a full other season. I wonder if this movie will be just a test for a second season, or will try to end the story.

Personally, I don't understand why this series was so popular. I generally liked it, but there was so stuff that bothered me about it. Mostly the fact that all the other crew members are just kind of there without any explanation. The series pretty much starts off with: "This dude has a ship. Want to know why? Let's explain it with about a 2 minute flashback. Why does the rest of his friends end up being crew members? Who cares! Where does the girl with glasses come from? Doesn't matter, she's not in any of the flashbacks, but get over it!"
It just bugged me having so little background with these characters. It's like I don't understand why they're there.

I haven't read the manga, but if it goes more into explaining why those other characters are there, I would definitely read it instead.


The manga goes into much more detail about all the members of the crew, both in terms of back story and in character development.
