I love how they did the character designs justice. The fox sisters look so stunning, wow! All the starter destroyers look adorable.

The animation is also fluid. I thought this would be a budget adaptation, but looks like I'm wrong.

Really hyped for this even though I don't play the game anymore.

Zuikaku appearing briefly in an engagement with Belfast. I’m hyped to see my waifu Akagi. Hopefully, we get to see more shipfus than just the ones in PV.

Japan doesn't know she exists apparently. I'm surprised she's even in the PV.

She's not a starter ship in JP and apparently a lot of starter ship fanart leave her out.

But that scene was disrespectful. She should not have been replaced by Unicorn. She should have been in the scene with the three others.
Very sad.

Maybe there's some plot related reason why she can't be with em in that scene or maybe I am just hopnig poor Niimi doesn't get shafted again

>Javelin, Laffey, Ayanami, and...Unicorn?
No hate I like Unicorn but you can't disrespect Z23 like that. She is one of the starter ships (for some regions) after all.

I see oppai, thighs and lolis...

There'd better be some mature shipfus like Hood or Amagi.

With this adaption, I'll be able to finally tell who the number 1 waifu is

Sep 14, 12:46 PM by KingKrab

Hey, look. It's KanColle.

I do wonder if the anime will have something that resembles a story and if it'll be actually good, or itl'll be just a waifu showcase to please fans.

i.e. I'd be thankful if this turns out to be better than KanColle.
