So we now know that the story is heading towards Midway
Let's pray for these two, seriously
>implying Hiryuu won't sacrifice her smile so that both the 1st and 2nd CarDivs make it out alive
>implying Zuikaku won't come to the rescue with the new MC Akiduki and her might AA cut-in
I want to see Zuikaku despair over Kaga's death, preferably after finally becoming close.
Good, if that gives us Zero Fighter 52 (Miyabe Squadron) or Shiden Kai-2 (Naoshi Squadron)
Just a reminder that in the OP, Akagi and Kaga are shown to be burning in flashy segments when the camera pans to them.
They got the ace of dive bombers and ace of torpedo bombers covered, no way they're leaving out the ace of fighters.
They should just call it Fairy Collection. Holy shit these pilots are badass
Post-Midway is when Japan feels the hurt of veteran avaitors in their Navy, both land and sea based for that matter.
This is why you always rotate out your active veterans and aces to instruction duty so the next generation can pick up on their tactics, skills, and experience.
It's shit. Wait for the Dragonball XXX, Sailor Moon, and Chinese Boatsluts crossover and pretend that it's Shimakaze
But the burning carrier looks more like Souryuu than anyone else.
Yes, but Tanaka was excellent.
Event's almost over, it's time you make a decision. Last year we got the largest event in the game, Midway. The only reason we didn't get Leyte in Fall is because it would've been too soon after Summer event depleted the resources and sanity of many TTK, but this year there is no such excuse. We will either get a Marianas Turkey Shoot during Summer or Battle of Leyte Gulf during Fall. If it's the latter, it means that if you want to have an actual chance at whatever crazy shit they pull (like abyssal combined fleet mechanics), you either start saving now or take the pussy way and choose Easy mode if they keep that game mechanic.
What will you do, listen to that liar Wo or actually sit down and spam expeditions?
It's sad that they decided to base the Italian battleship off shimakaze when in reality it could've had a better design, what's equally sad is that we still don't have a loli battleship in the current Kancolle.
To hell would I choose easy mode if Shinden is going to be one of the rewards on hard.
Just do easy, don't have much time anymore due to work anyway.
They need to put Shinano on hard if they want to make it worth it but everyone knows Shinano is a lie by now.
Oh Nagamon, haven't seen you again since my very first LSC attempt.
E-4, you keep on giving me rares, but never the rares I want.
The best, simply the best.
No, those are Tanaka TTK's destroyers from Battle of Tassafaronga, one of the most embarassing American defeats of the war.
Naganami was Tanaka's flag. Kagerou, Funny Accent #1, Suzu were all there as well. As well as 4 destroyers not in the game yet.
It should be criminal for Kaga to be this cute.
Most definitely, although I will also settle for a Kaga if she ever pops out.
Why didn't they just put Poi in the fleet and make her the flagship instead? She's vastly more qualified.
Who should I replace in my fleet for daijoubu?
If it's a carrier I'm going to pick turkey over oven so kagafags don't be biased.
TTK's grinding her and Shigurin to Kai 2
I dunno. Crafting I guess.
That's what i was planning but I'm going to remodel her first and that's going to take a while so I was weighing other options.
Well, shit. It just so happens that I'm stuck on 2-4. But I like both my DDs so I don't know which one to cut. Maybe I'll replace one with Ooi.
Yeah I heard she wasn't that great but she's my first CV so I'm sticking to her.
Thanks for the help.
>Those are all great ships except Zuikaku
Even RJ has a bigger plane slot than you, Turkey. Step up your game and get a Kai 2 already.
They can do Guadalcanal, though.
I don't even know if that's a naval game or a plane game.
Soon, Kancolle Kai logo is a sign.
I want less CGshit and more cooking
At least best girl is showing up next episode
>Well, shit. It just so happens that I'm stuck on 2-4. But I like both my DDs so I don't know which one to cut. Maybe I'll replace one with Ooi
Once you get to 2-4 it's no longer the type of game where you can have one "core fleet". You will need high level ships of every type, and use them on different maps. 2-4 in particular is just "bring a bunch of battleships and blow the enemy up"
She's not Kai 2...I don't think. (It's straight across and lacks the fins on the front that the kai-ni rig has in game)
That's her basic form.
Ever since I got bitched out for not knowing my shit in the earlier threads I've been trying to learn it. Kai 2 looks like a mini version of the Nagatos.
>But I like both my DDs so I don't know which one to cut.
They are both top tier, but I would not sortie them for 2-4. Sortie them for other maps. Go with Ooi for now. Or not.
Shigure is probably more useful than Poi for future events, but they are both elites in my opinion.
2-4 is just a slugfest. Bring your toughest and tankiest ships, preferably CV/BB/CAs, get air superiority and daytime double attacks, and hope to win. You'll need a full fleet of DDs for 3-2 soon anyway.
>She's not Kai 2...I don't think.
Nigger, are you fucking series?
You know... Not that I don't fap to this either. But it seems that it's ripping off A LOT of characters.
* Kaga = Negima's Setsuna
* Akagi = Negima's Konoka
* Hiei = Strike Witches' Yoshika
* Atago = Senran Kagura's Yomi
* Hotel = MILF Nanoha w/ ponytail
* Nagato = Ikkitousen's Unchou Kan'u
* Nachi = Koihime Musou's Unchou Kan'u
* Hibiki = Absolute Duo's Chaika
* Ooi = Evangelion's BITCH
Andrea Doria is so much cuter than Shimakaze, it's not even funny. I'd actually fap to Shimakaze if she looked like that; as it is, all she's good for is being turned into a trap.
You'll want to grind up your DDs separately, not by bringing them along on every map when they aren't required for compass; they'll just hold you back. I used my starter Inazuma for a long time but finally had to bench her for the usual 4BB/2CV to bruteforce maps. (Although now CAs are much more viable as a cheaper alternative to BBs thanks to daytime double attack).
I want an entire anime of nothing but fairies reenacting Pacific battles. No shipgirls, no dialogue, just cute fairies flying planes and bombing ships to a musical score.
If you want to talk about Kanmusu that are similar in some way other anime characters, it could last the entire thread.
I see. I guess I'll cut them both for now.
Unfortunately I only have one BB. So the other one would either have to be Ooi or Zuihou. Which one would be better?
Thanks again everyone.
And pic related. Kongou has been known to be Kai 2 ever since her character design for the anime came out months ago and is still the only kai 2 in the anime.
Kaga was Vanadis' Lim, right down to personality, design, and voice.
I'm just happy that you guys made me found my waifu. Y'all the best.
Zuihou is only good for being a dork. Ooichi is one of the most powerful ships in the game.
Zuho is cute and all but you really need to get another BB. Just craft or run 2-2 until you get another one. Or run 2-3 if you have subs
Zuihou sadly sucks. You could bring Ooi, but that fleet is nowhere near ready. General advice is to remodel and fully modernize everything but AA before seriously attempting 2-4.
You can't define good or bad in the midst of war.
The only thing for certain is that the winners write the history, and that's up to them to romanticize/appropriate/analyze/demonize it.
>the bad guys
From my point of view, the USN are evil.
Zui's of the Hou and Kaku variety deserve Kai2s for what they did during WW2.
Shigure, Doggykaze, Yuudachi strong
I'd watch an anime exclusively about destroyer girls duking it out like that.
How long has it been since you guys last played the game? Since getting Sakawa at her event for me
>set your alarm clock
>load a page
I know that 4chan likes to misuse "autism" and "weeaboo" but if this is your definition of either or both of those words, you are beyond help.
>implying I'm not tanning Yuu-chan at Orel right now
But Naka-chan is delicious. She was made to be eaten.
I just closed the game like three minutes ago after sending my bedtime expeditions out.
>he doesn't have Line Ahead
>he doesn't have muttkaze
>he doesn't have the new MC Akiduki
>he doesn't have Chiyoship
>he doesn't have the U-boat
>he doesn't have all the new Kai 2s that have come out
How can you live with yourself?
Zuihou needs a total overhaul, but Zuikaku would be fine if they just made luck matter for carriers. Give them some kind of cut-in already. Though a kai 2 would be nice too, especially since Konishi recovered.
I understand how you feel. I thought I had kicked the habit when I quit back in November, but as soon as I saw art of U-511 I had to start playing again a couple weeks ago. Now I finished the event and I can't stop.
>Y-You're just a bunch of weeaboos!
I'm sorry reading a simple guide is too hard for you.
>especially since Konishi recovered.
He sure did.
>you will never share a pizza with 6th DESDIV
The new ships definitely tempt me but then I just remember the 200+ failed funs to get a Hamakaze drop and the retardness of LHC that made me quit the game in the first place and it's easy to not download it again.
Poi's better. Just like how she's better at being an idol too
I think I'm kind of okay with Zuihou how she is. Anti-sub and support fleet duty might not be glamorous, but they're still important jobs, and she and her sister are great at both while keeping costs down irrespective of their total plane counts. And she gets all the new planes when she does them too. I don't think she's complaining, and I still show her a lot of love.
Yamashiri sinks back into kuso status
Eat shit, mate. I'm also training another Maruyu to feed her.
She needs a kai2 to be as good as a Fleet Carrier.
Taihou becomes irrelevant.
Shokaku and Taihou will burn the whole place down
I don't know, shit like beheading civilian PoWs at Wake Island because you anticipate a counterattack, or ordering indigenous peoples to kill themselves and their families before the white devils can take them at Okinawa, are pretty bad even in their time.
War crimes are a thing for a reason, just because you're killing the shit out of each other doesn't mean you have to be inhuman about it.
But anybody who extends it to shipgirls is a colossal faggot and the reason Kancolle blocks foreigners in the first place.
>that liar Wo
She has never lied to us.
Okay, fine, eventually.
>just because you're killing the shit out of each other doesn't mean you have to be inhuman about it.
>On 5 October 1943, American naval aircraft from Yorktown raided Wake. Two days later, fearing an imminent invasion, the Japanese Rear Admiral Shigematsu Sakaibara ordered the execution of the 98 captured American civilian workers who had initially been kept to perform forced labor.
It wasn't, actually.
I want to buy a Zuihou model and put little Me 262s on her deck. She'd appreciate that. I don't know if she'd even be able to launch them or whatever, but it's the thought that counts
It doesn't matter how many Maruyus you feed her, she'll always be kuso. She's only slightly less kuso right now because she got Kai2 before Ise. Once Ise gets Kai2 Yamashiro will be obsolete again and your Maruyu will be wasted.
>still a pleb
Who knew they even tried to play the game.
If you care about rankings, it's an easy rewards. Otherwise, not particularly. You might get some subs that would otherwise be annoying to get, but you can get them on other maps or build 3/4 of them.
Beat 1-5 every month at least for the medals.
This week on 4koma Adventures, reunions with Nowaki and Kaga ruins her character image.
Destroyers Fubuki, Shirayuki
What, is it a dance invitation?
They say that
Nowaki-chan is going to come here soon!
Oh, a dance of happiness?
Destroyers Hatsuyuki, Miyuki
Commander FA-BU-LOUS is kind of up there too.
I want a Nowaki body pillow...
I wonder if Kaga-senpai is going to be alright now that she's coming.
Why does it get her flustered up in the first place?
Something terrible floats into my mind...
Aircraft Carrier Kaga
But it's alright. In preparation for this time...
I have this Maikaze-made "Imaginary Nowaki-chan!"
Preparations Part 2
What kind of preparations are done with...
(And then Nowaki-chan...)
First was setting the foundation with image training...
And singing the welcoming song "Welcome to the Base, Nowaki"...
(The three of us created it)
Why does that make you so excited...?
Maikaze said that I'm not used to these sort of things,
So it's best to strike while the iron is hot...
Uh...isn't Kaga-senpai already pretty messed up about it?
I'd wager 2/3rds the regulars in Kancolle threads now don't even play the game.
With that said:
I am Nowaki, the fifteenth ship of the Kagerou class of destroyers.
Maikaze, I know you're happy, but don't just dance wherever...
So this is the true dance of happiness...
You're commenting on that!?
Come on, stop it...
(Noo waa kii!)
What does "Nowaki" mean?
It's an old name for typhoons that occur just as winter begins.
Note: Hatsuyuki lost her bow in the Fourth Fleet Incident in 1935, which had 54 victims.
How about a complete overhaul of their plane slots?
The Shokaku-class carriers are renowned for their high mobility so it would be nice if the Kai-2 gave them insane evasion, at least for Zuikaku.
It's true, though. You do what you have to to kill that bastard that's trying to kill you, but you don't escalate past that. Any escalation past that does nothing to further your cause yet encourages the enemy to do the same to you, and nobody wants that.
Maikaze-chan! Good to see you!
Light Cruiser Naka
With the return of this trio with Naka-chan in the center...
It's been a while, but let's do it!
The Fourth Squadron pose!
Guess it's missing something if we don't have all five...
Note: The missing members are Hagikaze and Arashi
The Fourth Squadron pose...?
Having to do it back then ended up imprinting it into me...
Oh? Nowaki-chan, since when have you...
Light Cruiser Tatsuta
Tatsuta-senpai, it's been a while!
Good timing, let's switch.
Okay, so you're the flagship from now on, good luck with commanding the expeditions~
Nowaki-chan, long time no see-pyon!
I'll be anti-sub patrolling, then~
Note: After being sunk by the USS Sand Lance, Nowaki was made the flagship.
This is another asshole TTK like pic related
and I like it >Dat Akebono bullying
You're late! How long do you think we were waiting!?
Destroyers Asashio, Ooshio, Arashio, Michishio
I had to participate in the Kon Operation without you!
Hmph! If you're going to apologize, you should do it to Maikaze, who was worried sick!
Not that it has anything to do with me, since I'm part of the Destroyer Division 8!
訳すと「来てくれて嬉しい 一緒に渾作戦参加したかったね 舞風ちゃん寂しがってたよ 私は第八駆逐隊のみんながいたから大丈夫だったよ」ね
To translate: "I'm glad you came. I wanted to participate in the Kon Operation with you. Maikaze-chan was lonely. I was alright because I had Destroyer Division 8 with me"
Who said you could translate!?
I'm so glad to meet you again, Nowaki-chan
Heavy Cruiser Chikuma
Yes, I feel the same way!
I heard about you from Chikuma!
Heavy Cruiser Tone
You must be fatigued after your long journey, yes? We have some ice cream for you!
(Sweet and delicious!)
Thank you very much...!
So Tone-neesan doesn't "accidentally" eat it, right?
Aircraft Carrier Akagi
Oh...it's so good to see you so well...
Note: Maikaze and Nowaki had to handle scuttling Akagi.
Your triple-level flight deck was restored...or perhaps a bulge was added...
...What is that...?
I...I was just practicing with Imaginary Nowaki-chan...!
Oh...well, this is Maikaze's specially-made...
And here comes the big turn!
As long as you quit before the boss node (except, obviously, when getting your monthly medal) you're fine.
Don't worry about level 40, the first node won't change so you'll still be able to grind it, and for the later nodes you're going to be bringing enough ships to line abreast anyway. It's only at 80 that scaling becomes a problem since the first node becomes a trollsub.
How far behind is 4koma typesetting? We haven't had much typesetting of any sort for a while due to the event.
There was something last week, I think.
>You will never be in a Akaga sandwich with Maikaze and pillow Nowaki
Sometimes you have to make do with what you can get.
Akagi knows but she's not going to stop.
Give us a fairy episode, not a hotel episode.
I'm sick of bacteriorhodopsins and chromatin Immunoprecipitation
We're 8 episodes into a 1 cour series yet it still feels like things are just getting starte.
Long live the imperial japanese army.
Mogami, remove army dogs
And I'm sick of QHO problems and energy eigenstate functions but I'm not complaining. Oh wait.
As if it is a bad thing in the first place.
I think that was what he meant, the fact that Tenryuu and Tatsuta is in a different base means unless the anime switches focus to another base, it's not going to happen.
How about both?
I miss Sawa's Sawas already.
Yuubari's fleet was the only other fleet from this base. The other ship girls mentioned were all from another kuso Indonesian TTK's base. That includes the expedition sisters.
You will never have a tulpa of Kaga to encourage you.
Oh my, oh my, thank you E-4, thank you CV-hime now I have recovered everything I missed during the AI/MI event.
The fact remains that I still don't have a Kaga.
Just like Aoba, Kinugasa, and Kako.
No, we want a Kancolle that's given entirely without restraints to the master who goes by the name of Mari Okada
Really REALLY we need more stuff exploring Haruna and Kirishima's relationship, which is probably the least defined aspect of the twins. I think there's more fanart and 4komas or fan doujins having Haruna interact with Kongou then her twin.
I like to bullying shipgirls.
I know, I'm terrible TTK.
This one's been stewing for a while. It looks like the style of >>121514641 too.
I cannot fucking believe that people actually enjoy this sort of character.
You know, I've been looking really, really hard at this picture for a minute, and I really can't tell whether the animal on Kaga's pajamas is a cat or a dog.
Old Ooi yells at clouds
>79 evasion vs 69 evasion
The thing with the 1CarDiv is that they seem bulky while they're really not.
On the other hand Taihou is actually bulky and Hiryuu has a very high evasion stat.
All in a day of work for the legendary senpai
Flight decks don't work as shields!
>He doesn't know about the Akatsuki secret maneuver no. 5: Akatsuki Phalanx
Nice try anon but I did that gag first
I always wondered why the Akatsuki-class has those impractical side turrets, but if those funnel shoulder guards actually function as armor, it actually makes perfect sense, since it lets them shoot even while blocking or while standing sideways.
It's only from the first episode though.
Kancolle Desu. I believe it's already finished serializing.
There seems to be a translator already, so I never bothered. I might translate it later, since it has some surprisingly cool scenes.
>Yep, The translator probably didn't play the game. No proofreader either, to check the translation
Looks like it needs a do-over. And then Torpedo Squadron manga after Desu is done?
Murakumo is trying a black bikini. Praise her.
Duki won't allow such lewdness from young destroyers!
Nevertheless she's going to confiscate all black bikinis/bras to uphold public morals
Needs more hot blood.
Reading about the IJN and IJA's competition is pretty funny.
The IJN decided that since the British had naval aviation they needed it too, so they lobbied to get one in 1913
So the IJA figured they needed an Army air service and got it in 1919.
The IJN realized they needed a marine/garrison unit in the 20s, so they decided to set up marines to garrison the islands the navy took.
The IJA decided fuck you and so they set up their own marines to take their own islands and garrison them.
The IJN decided to set up their own Army units with their own tanks and artillery and used them alongside the IJA in China in the 30s.
So the IJA just decided they wanted their own navy and started making their own ships and carriers during the war.
Like it was literally a tit for tat attempt to outdo each other
I remember from Hara's memoirs that one of his mission was to drop off IJA soldiers into what turned out to be a massive trap.
US was intentionally letting IJN drop off IJA into that territory to trap the soldiers in one fell swoop.
Hara didn't give a fuck and just said "But that was an Army problem, and the Japanese Navy could not be bothered with it"
