With each camp advancing their own motive, the girls confront an unprecedented enemy they have never faced before.

cool
not at all want to play the game but seeing Prinz Eugen animated would be cool

I'm going to say this now having any Prinz animated is a godsend of sorts. I mean she is drop dead sexy, is rather smug, and is the most superior form of German Engineering, and she teases Hipper a whole lot because of it too.

I absolutely didn't expect that, but I'm excited for it. Of course I'm a bit skeptical but it could still turn out great so I'll be waiting :v
Also the announcement for the ps4 game by idea factory and compile heart hit me off guard today. Azur lane seems to be real popular.
I'm real curious how it turns out compared to Kantai Collection since I love both games.

with SSR rate being at 7% compared to FGO, and you get to roll it daily for free(...)

in a week of playing already gotten 5 ssrs, now at 8 SSRs



Mother. Of. God.

Having been r*ped by the RNG of FGO gacha so many times (no Medb, no Ozy, no Amakusa, no Raikou, no Iskandar, no Kiyolancer), I for once welcome our new chinese overlords.

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.)

I played both, spent close to $2000 on it, still have like 100 rings left. will probably do the same on AL. Azur lane in many aspects is significantly better than Kanolle

Kancolle has RNG drop system, which Azur lane has the same. However, Azur lane is more of a gacha game, with SSR rate being at 7% compared to FGO, and you get to roll it daily for free, weekly which lets you save up to 200+ cubes which is enough to roll several SSRs

Kancolle has massive delay after a battle ends, which you have to click finish and then wait for a ship to drop which waste 20 seconds, AL is all instant

You can't farm for rare/best equipment outside of Events in Kancolle, you can in AL

It's BS how I waste 280k resources and still haven't gotten Gotland yet. Absolutely BS, if she was in AL she would be very easily obtainable

You can manually do battles in this game as opposed to RNG routing in kancolle. You cannot choose battles at-all in Kancolle, it's all RNG, and force fleet compositions

in a week of playing already gotten 5 ssrs, now at 8 SSRs

Note I hate to say this but you are giving bad rep for players playing kancolle, it's no wonder Kancolle gets attacked by Azurlane fans cuz of people like you seriously

Kancolle could, in fact, learn a lot from this game. Look they still haven't even localized the game yet, and no collab outside of Japan, which Azur lane did with World of Warships, Neptune etc

neat been playing JPN since march or so only hopped back on recently ,game is pretty fun and has a lot of good designs...and not so good regardless mobage /game adaptions are some of the worse most of the time besides a few

Chinese cartooonssss.

All hope is now lost. Will probably be better than Kancolle, still.

He has only done scripts for some episodes though to be honest still... ehhh? Not that hopeful (though I believe in Tensho for this one tbh).

Also I will never understand the dislike for KanColle aside from one thing I can kind of agree with? It's just the balance was too out of place between the SoL and actual moments of the story.

More ship girls be it what form is welcomed.

I hope they adapt the whole Mutsuki class in or I'll be mad. Azur Lane's Kisaragi MUST be in AT LEAST!


With this now receiving adaptation, I wonder when will Abyss Horizon get theirs lol.

I was in a hurry but I edit my post to address you a better way. Yeah, my previous post is not presented in good way.

The NierAutomata and Azur Lane comparison is to address your post 62. Saying that Azur Lane is same as KanColle just because Azur Lane offer the options for auto combat is the same as saying KanColle is the same as Nier Automata just because Nier Automata also has auto combat. That's the flaw of your argument in post 62. The similarities of boats, setup of six, rng damage and ship system won't matter at all when they are nothing more than visual appearance in KanColle in which player can't control them. KanColle is the kind of game “game of praying for luck” while Azur Lane, you need skills.

In your next reply, please answer this question.

Question: Can KanColle be considered as bullet hell game?

Yes or No?

You acknowledged it yourself that Azur Lane is 'bullet hell' game. If KanColle can't be categorized as bullet hell, then you already admit their gameplay are totally different which means not the same.
Honestly at this point, im arguing about a fucking app. SO here is my opinion. Kancolle and azur lane still have similar combat systems except that on is touhou but stupid afwhile the other is just auto combat but still has similar ways that work with equipment and other shit that impacts the game. Just cause you can move it doesnt mean its not a straight off copy. And finally, both are shit and in reality Ultimate Ninja Blazing is better than both since it has a real gameplay instead of auto shit. (also auto shoot is something both games have)


KanColle don't even have combat system. It just cutscene. They can't be similar when combat system don't exist in KanColle.
Please answer the question if KanColle can be categorized as bullet hell game or not.

You keep saying it's the same but where is your evidence they are the same other than the fact that Azur Lane offer an option of auto combat just like Nier Automata bullet system. Let me ask you this, can KanColle be categorized as bullet hell game? You can't because you can not control it. In KanColle, it's nothing more than visual or simulation pop out on your screen while in Azur Lane,it's an actual gameplay control by players. The gameplay are totally different.

Except Azur Lane is the same as Kancolle, it isnt touhou or even a polished game like Neir. You are comparing Neir to Azur, when in reality the boats, setup of six, rng damage and ship system, and ect. are more close to Kancolle. Just cause you can move your group doesn't mean its not a copy. Generally, its the same, a knockoff. The game play is the same if not worse than kancolle. All-in-all stop making stupid comparisons to fucking tripple A titles to an app game made by a chinese women

YES! Exactly my point! Azur Lane is a bullet hell game, KanColle is not because KanColle don't allow you to control it. Keikaku dori. I been waiting for you to say this. So you actually acknowledge Azur Lane difference genre from KanColle due to one being bullet hell game, the other isn't.

LOL! Shoot 'em up genre is the same as bullet hell game. Check the genre part.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Azur_Lane

Games like Nier Automata also have bullet hell and options to auto combat, does that means Nier Automata also ripoff like KanColle? According to your logic, it seems so.
