Kantai Collection

KanColle (艦これ)

Genre: Action Sci-Fi Military


              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.
