How come i never see Arpeggio on here but Kancolle's fucking everywhere on /a/? Arpeggio was the og boat bimbo concept
Because Kancolle has had much better marketing. Kancolle and Arpeggio have also had a mutual benefit from each other resulting in both of them rising in popularity.
Oh, and you can't marry Arpeggios so it loses points there.
I do agree the Arpeggio, while being much more outlandish, is much more fleshed out and "believable" than Kancolle.
That being said, Kancolle is several magnitudes larger than Arpeggio, and aside from S1 of the anime, the manga is a very very slow release, so there's not a whole lot to do between chapters.
>can't marry arpeggios
You sure are delusional
The Kancolle anime was adapted from a very popular online game which is constantly updated, while there's nothing to talk about with arpeggio other than why Takao is best girl.
>so many options
But how will I choose...
But Arpeggio only got that popular because of Kancolle.
Posting best girl.
I honestly don't know which one I like more.
Did someone say carnival? I think someone just said carnival.
I will have faith. I will believe that eventually I will get to sortie Iona and friends to 5-5.
We don't take secondaries into account, he means that most Arpeggio fans also play the KanColle game.
>why is a show that aired over a year ago less popular than a show airing right now?
Will it ever get a season 2? I enjoyed it a lot but was surprised by how much my friend told me the anime's plot diverged from the manga's. I'd like another season but I can't help but wonder how they'll handle continuity.
We're going to see musashi in 2nd movie
3D Printer Mode Kongou is a great design.
>Kancolle: vapid braindead garbage tailored to appeal shit taste last gen nips, ex-touhou secondaries and shitty waifufags
>Arpeggio: full of talking people and complicated words, requires attention to understand what happens in the story, it doesn't have compulsive collection mechanics and characters can't all be described with "archetype+subarchetype"
take a wild guess
>og boat bimbo
MC Axis and Moemoe Niji Taisen was the earliest when it comes to ship musume.
Thats right its not Haruna because she can't hold a candle to all this greatness.
Kancolle have bunch of historical weapons fitted on them so it also attracts the military otaku. Truth to be told learned some of pretty interesting stuff from Kancolle like colored shells and the sanshikidan. Arpeggio have better storytelling but when it comes to historical knowledge, you just learn about the ships names and how they look. Other than that its all nanomaterials and laser beams.
>you just learn about the ships names and how they look.
And its more than enough to let you actually research and learn about them if you're interested. or do you want a spoon of ship facts just to make you feel now you're an expert?
>it also attracts the military otaku
bullshit, the only japan WW era navy fans outside japan on this board are the ones that checked the wikipedia pages of the ships appearing in the game
Ships, yes but when it comes to weapons and how they worked sometimes you only realized them when you see it in action.
Wikipedia doesn't have much info on Yamato's Hotel status and her Ramune machine.
Kancolle is everywhere because its airing right now.
Not one of the best Arpeggio threads, but here we go.
Why is "Blue Field" so perfect?
Arpeggio did what Kancolle is unable to do so: interesting characters, solid naval action and an interesting story, all of this without having to dwell too much in the "cliché of the week" that Kancolle has had since its inception.
speak for yourself.
many months. consider EFP
kancolle is a multimedia franchise and has a marketing budget because it rakes in money. and you can actually waifu the girls in the game.
arpeggio "only" is a long-running manga with a CG TV series.
Also, crunchy translations killed the manga threads. those were a thing even before the TV series was announced.
Arpeggios have better outfits. Whole wardrobes even. At least in the manga, the series was limited by what CG can do on a budget.
Franchise debates never do a thread well. It's okay to like both, in my opinion.
I hope we'll get see more of them. The rapid switching between the different active groups gives each of them so little panel time.
But at least several of them are converging on each other now.
Because those Kancolle cunts have been here ever since they invaded us back when the anime was announced. More than a fucking year ago.
I wish they'd leave. But this is their home now because they apparently had one shitty anime.
I fucking wish they'd leave like those Freefags. They're mostly gone now, but who knows, they might be back for the movie and they're always here with their /y/-themed drama CDs.
/jp/ has a few Kancolle threads but those cunts keep coming here because WE ANIME NOW ANIMEEEE OUR FACEBOOK GAME IS BEEEEST. Cunts.
Their threads are not even discussing the game, it's all just best ship shit. Fuck you and your shitty ships, do they even space?
NOBODY CARES ABOUT YOUR SHITTY FLASH GAME FAGGOTS
GO TO /G/ IF YOU EVEN EVER GET TO HTML5
>not airing now
>has no popular game
>manga was better...
>... but it's mounthly and hasn't even really started the story yet
And you tought nothing could be worse than 2hoe.
She's practically nothing but secondary bait at this out so most of her "fans'" opinions don't mean shit since they won't know anything about Kancolle but they'll swear by her anyway. Not to mention her doujin and fanart output has declined anyway.
Arpeggio has HMS Vampire.
I'm simply telling you why these losers have such a large presence compared to Arpeggio. I don't give a single iota of a fuck what 'type' of fans kancolle has, and neither should you.
Arpeggio is like 10 times better than Kancolle.
Th only not so good thing about it is the male MC. Fortunately he barely gets any screentime these days.
Kancolle is only good as a fap fodder. And anime fails even at that.
You should read it instead.
>arpeggio >>>>>>>>>>>> kancolle
Arpeggio is better, but not by that much.
>shimakaze >>>>>>>>>> iona
Hell no. Iona is one of the best and is way better than Shimakaze.
>takao>>>>>>>>>>>> rest of girls kancolle
Not even close. Especially not when there's Amatsukaze.
>Without him series would be much more popular and selling much better.
maybe, but it would be popular for all the wrong reasons.
you would get endless yuri shipping, OMERGAHD CUTE AIs DOING CUTE THINGS, SO KAWAII reactions etc.
Having a balanced cast - which is quite hard considering the ships are all girls - helps maintaining the semi serious tone that it has.
Look at what happend to nanoha. Serious business spinoff got put on infinite hiatus. And the other one with the gaggle of gay lolis gets a TV series. Not saying that gay lolis are bad, but it reshapes the franchise.
>it's all just best ship shit
That's exactly the same thing with Apreggio. Sometimes you talk about the Manga, other times you image dump, and the remainder of the time is spent bashing Kantai Collection.
>Not even close
Shitcollecfag at his finest.
Because the manga is too slow. We need at least 10 chapters a month to satisfy everyone, and to have things to talk about.
Kancolle is kind of like Touhou, it's all about visual and no real content so fags can talk bullshit all day long about one single picture of a girl.
Nope. The plot is humanity vs Fog and the search of AC.
Gunzou is just shoved in there since we need our male self insert MC right?
He'd doing nothing for ages and series is better than ever.
Nope, but you will get Hiei as Seitokaichou.
Why is Takao so popular when the series has girls like Haruna, Maya, Zuikaku, Vampire, Kirishima?
How much I hate these shits. At least do we get this scene?
Kongou is love
Kongou is life
Nope, but they do actually reach the states and deliver that special warhead. Have some Takao itasha as substitute.
>Let's be honest, Gunzou is boring and unnecessary.
What the fuck are you talking about? Do you even follow the story? Did you even watch the anime/read the manga, or are just basing this shit of your delusional headcanon?
>browsing on sadpanda
>"Oh, this one looks goo-"
>"Well thise one seems ni-"
>"Okay, that one is original"
Guess it's the same as two-hoe. It's simply annoying that artists with actual skills waste their talent by drawing doujins for these two instead creating something original.
Don't you know? There's only a limited amount of enjoyment to go around. Enjoying things that are also enjoyed by others is literally wasting enjoyment that could be better directed elsewhere.
>doing something they enjoy
At it has nothing to do with the fact that touho and kancole creators are the ones who gave permission to doujin artists while the others sometimes trying to pass bills to regulate doujin industry.
Congratulations! Your autism level has increased.
You mean adorable blushing maiden.
...I still can't deal with her hair color. I'd been picturing it as a dark maroon or burgundy color; the light blue was literally the opposite of what I had been imagining.
>unable to recognize a joke post
>being autistic ironically is not autistic
That's not Captain Iona.
>KanColle anime greenlit in September 2013
>Arpeggio anime started in October 2013
>KanColle anime wouldn't have existed if not for Arpeggio success
TV Kongou was so much better than comic Kongou.
On the flip side, I don't think I will ever forgive the TV show for doing what they did to Maya.
The best thing about shipgirls is the endless possibilities for hilarious dom/sub and bondage scenarios.
"That's no good, Captain! You need to make sure I'm securely moored before we can do anything in the dock."
"P... permission to come aboard, sir...!"
"You're incredible, Captain! I don't want this shakedown cruise to ever end!"
"Hooo, you say that, but your steam pressure is rising so quickly..."
"I-it's your fault that my boilers are getting this hot, Captain!"
"Oh, that's dangerous. We should reduce speed to one-half, then..."
"N-no! Please stop bullying me, Captain, I... I... I please give the command! ORDER ME GO TO FLANK SPEED!"
"Hehe, you just can't get enough of swabbing my deck, can you Captain? You're just like a cute little middie. But you know... you can go below anytime you want..."
"Your torpedo tubes are already flooding? What a lewd girl!"
Ah, but what's the Force Org Chart look like?
They fall into line pretty well if you have a single carrier/escort carrier, but what about multiple?
Can you handle that many sorties? How about the vanguard? A CBG is one hell of an exhausting night.
