We’re two weeks into the new anime season and there still isn’t any new post from me. No Three Episode Rules or anything. Not even a post talking about what I’m looking forward to the most. And it’s official.
I’m a bit a bored of posting really. As Kantai Collection sputtered to its not-so-horrible, but not-God’s-gift-to-the-fandom ending (I’m still pissed at how Wo~cktown died). There are other factors. Work, the ongoing political idiocy. The ongoing social idiocy.
I think a season of me not blogging would be good for the soul. if not the sanity.
And thus ends our series of hopes and dreams of many a teitoku. It was an interesting ride to say the least (and kindest), and a lot of us got to see our girls on the screen. I think though, for such a hyped series, it has fallen short of many people’s expectations. I was pretty lenient, even more so than some, but I always had this nagging feeling that it could always be better.
The fated Operation MI begins. Will the girls be able to turn back the inevitability of their fate, or will the addition of the most plain and vanilla main character to grace our computer screens be the one that changes everything. We shall see at the start of the final arc of this series.
And so it seems this episode is the slight ‘breather’ episode. Not really much of note was done in this episode, and it’s to prep the viewer I guess to the true make or break arc of the series. To see if they’ll make another tied-in sequel, or to leave it as is. Anyways, onto a wonder party, poi~.
We’re nearing the end of the series, and so it seems fitting that we see another aspect of the game being brought into the anime. Particularly the second remodel. Yuudachi has one of the better known Kai Ni forms, her airheaded nature suddenly disappearing in this guise of a fierce hound.
Following the battle in which Fubuki learns how important it is to leave at least one escort with her fleet carriers, they make their way to the Hotel Yamato, where they can check in anytime they like, but could never leave! Well, Akagi wouldn’t considering Yamato’s excellent food.
And so what was going to be a very shocking episode didn’t turn out the way I thought it would. And the fact we finally see my favorite Abyssal show up. About bloody time Wo-chan. Because there is no Abyssal like Wo. And chibi-type Wo-class is the cutest. Anyways, onto the episode, and the attack on Port Moresby!
I can’t go on. With 4k fuel left and a few days left, I’m cutting my losses. I’m gonna send an E-1 fleet out to see if can snag some drops but other than that no more. I don’t think I can realistically clear E-5 with or without support fleets. I know some might be disappointed, and I’m sure I’ll get an ear full, but I’ll put this up.
I wasn’t planning to do this event. I didn’t do any prep, and the only reason my bucket count was so high is because I was doing bucket expeditions to clear dailies. My time between the two events saw me bring roughly eleven ships to Kai Ni or their final forms. Kongou, Haruna, Kirishima, Hiei, Kitakami, Ooi, Yuudachi, Shigure, Chitose, Chiyoda, Myoukou are the result of nightly PVP and 3-2A runs. Hell, that ill fated LSC clear-my-dailies stupidity got me extra Kongous and a Nagato, who will now be placed behind Akizuki in the upgrade queue.
The event gave me some rather nice drops. Hiryuu in E-3 and Shoukaku in E-4, as well as getting Yuu and Katori. I think I can say I came out of this better than I expected. Unlike last event where my hastily put together Fleet of Beyond Hopeless never got that final kill to liberate Eu-chan from the grasp of the Abyssal fleet, a much better set up (though unprepared and in a training footing) Fleet of Byeond Hopeless managed to get four new friends and dealt some damage to the E-5 boss before its fuel ran out.
Some say I should go on, but I think at this point, if I can get some rare drops from E-1, I will go for it.
Because lazy and busy.
6th DesDiv enters a curry cooking competition to decide whose dish will be served for the next year. After much trial and error, they overcome their differences with a helpful word from Nagato. With the other competitors taking themselves out, 6th DesDiv goes against Ashigara and Haguro, and win. Mainly because Nagato can’t stand spicy food and 6th DesDiv’s curry was mild.
I can’t be bothered at the moment.
