And so here we go! Looks like this is the season for me to get back into anime. Yeah, I know I was watching F/SN UBW before but since it was the only one I was watching, kind of doesn’t count as being back. With this season though, I am thinking that yes, I am back!
Ships? I am thinking ships!
couple gay girl found!
Where are the pan…
Awesome launch sequence is awesome!
Amen to that Yuu, amen!
I know Fubuki, I know…
And of course my Master Ship!
Yeah, I am a lost cause, aren’t I? I always do this, don’t I? I always seem to manage to ship the wrong ship! I can already tell that 90% of the nation are shipping Akagi/Kaga and yet do I do the same? Noooo! I have to go and ship the least unlikely of all couples so far, Fubuki and Akagi!
Seriously though, Strike Witches anime but with pantsu!! That is what I think of Kantai Collection! Essentially though it’s about battleships in human form! I believe Fubuki is a Destroyer and Akagi is a Carrier. Any way the girls are split into squadrons and do battle with sea monsters that also like human. Well, partly! Which of course means there will be drama later on where, most probably Fubuki, starts bonding with the enemy!
But any way, what’s more important is the yuri and how ironic that we ship ships! Seriously, we are shipping actual ships in this anime!! How awesome is that?! Was this anime made for the community? Me think yes! The OP kind of gives away, or at least hints at what we can expect later on in the series which is why I was kind of disappointed with the lack of some Akagi/Fubuki! Having been let down in Strike Witches with Mio/Yoshika, I have a feeling that will also be the case here. Please prove me wrong dear writers!
The series has only just began so who knows, God might just smile upon me, though I feel like I use up all of my luck last year. Still, even if I am let down, there is at least a good deal of other ships left to feel that void, one of which has already even been touched upon. Now sure it is kind of sketchy as it seems the love is one-sided (or is it? with that feeding, not so sure) but to get it this early? I am sensing a spike in the force with this one!
Also Akagi and Fubuki have already met and even had lunch together! That’s more progress in two episodes than Mio and Yoshika had in the whole series of Strike Witches! That Kaga though is proving to be one strong nemesis! I mean come on! They have the colours on their side! red and Blue? Who can beat that!!! Unless of course Fubuki is green later on when she manages to be Akagi’s escort, which is her dream it seems! The road to get to that point is the hard part, and really, kind of like the other side of the story of Kantai Collection now parallel to fighting the enemy and reclaiming the oceans. After that, it shouldn’t be too hard to take on Kaga. I mean come on, Fubuki is the frikkin Destroyer!
Yeah, Kantai Collection is one of the few anime I am following this season. Should keep me occupied until UBW returns in April. But just in case it doesn’t cut it, I have plan B…
Getting off on food?! That’s not very Lady-like Ryou!
Is there a better first meeting? Me think not!
Sorry Ryou, but that only works on gu…
The real definition of Food Porn!
Walking Kirin to school and waiting for her outside
Ewww! There is no way I would do that except for my lover…
DING! That’s a wrap people! good night!
Agreed Kirin, agreed!
Watch as Ryou still doesn’t enjoy her food even with these people!
Koufuku Graffiti! How long has it been since I watched a slice of life anme? Oh how long! I mean this is a slice of life genre, right? it has to be! Unless there is a Food Category I am not aware of. And that animation! Last anime I watched with this kind of sugar character designs was Popotan! I really miss the old days anime!
As for the story, I have absolutely no idea what it is going to be about later but for now, I assume it will be about bonds and food and Kirin coming over every other weekend as she goes to cram school in Tokyo. Also we meet the characters as they meet each other for the first time. And despite their looks they are the same age, which really brings relief to my heart! Wouldn’t wanna go through the Misaki/Hatoko (Angelic Layer) debacle again! Nope! I am pretty sure the only reason we were denied them, apart from CLAMP being CLAMP of course, is because of the ages!
Any way, Kirin is just so lovable and so is Ryou. I shipped them instantly as soon as I saw them in the OP. Interestingly, a while ago I was watching the latest AKB no Anta Dare where I started shipping YokoYoko(Yokomichi) and Kurenyan (Chou), yes, my first ship of Team 8! At that moment I thought of Kirin and Ryou because their difference in build reminded me of the other two. Of course Chou is a older than Yuriyan but it is only a year, or even months just so there is almost no difference.
I don’t know, this fact actually puts a bit of spice in their relationship I think, and they are dynamically compatible! They have connected much more than most do on their first meeting and I feel like I am in for a ride with this one! I can foresee the climax being that they have a falling out and Ryou goes back to not enjoying food but this time not because she is eating it alone but because Kirin is not there with her! I can see it clearly guys, mark my words!
How about that confession of Kirin’s though >.< She will be whatever Ryou needs her to be, eh? Other child of course, to which I too say NAY! We have enough of that foolishness with Mayuyu, don’t want it here too! I wonder if there will come a time in future episodes where Husband Kirin is required! I guess I will just have to wait and see, eh? And I will be watching! This, Kantai Collection and maybe Yuri Kuma are my season’s pick for the moment. I was also promised a Nanoha series but I guess someone messed up the dates…again!
Any way, take care you all…
