Kantai Collection

KanColle (艦これ)

Genre: Action Sci-Fi Military

cover

              Kantai Collection [艦隊これくしょん] or "Kancolle" is a popular battle strategy online social card game developed by Kadokawa Games which launched back in April. The cuties in the game are moe-anthropomorphisms of WWII Japanese naval warships known as Kanmusu [艦むす]. Each Kanmusu's character and appearance correlate with the actual warships. For example, while destroyers are depicted as loli girlies, larger vessels like warships and aircraft carriers tend to be bustier.
              The battle is mostly automated and players take on a role of an admiral [提督] who organizes his/her fleet, gather resources and build an even more powerful Kanmusu to win battles.
              The official web site for the upcoming TV anime adaptation of Kantai Collection/KanColle online social card game finally launched on December 10.

              Kanmusu are voiced by popular voice actresses such as Saki Fujita (Hatsune Miku), Megumi Nakajima (Macross F Ranka Lee, Megpoid), Yuka Iguchi (Toaru Index, Haganai Maria) and loads more.

Hatsune Miku Makes Her American Debut on David Letterman

Hatsune Miku Performance 

On David Letterman

                      Remember that futuristic stage performance Abel told us about on yesterday’s Music Dispatch? Well, a wild Hatsune Miku did indeed appear to make her American performance debut on The Late Show With David Lettermanlast night. Viewers got to rock out to her recent single “Sharing the World,” which seems apt for the virtual Japanese pop star who often steps out of virtual reality to share the IRL-verse with us meat sacks. You can take a look at the image-projected performance in all of its glory right here:


                     Letterman’s response after the round of applause garnered by Hatsune Miku’s performance: “It’s like being on Willie Nelson’s bus.” Many who’ve never seen Hatsune Miku in action will surely share this sentiment, and I can’t say they’d be wrong for feeling that way either. The song choice and the hardly distinguishable English-dubbed lyrics aren’t as catchy as what we’re use to from the Vocaloid princess, so this is probably not the best first impression Hatsune Miku could have made on American television. The good news is, however, that we’ve still got the Miku Expo coming up for people who might not have enjoyed or understood last night’s showcase.
