Kantai Collection + Movie Anime Review
This is going to be very short entry. I am kinda busy, as of the moment.
I watched this last year and made this entry few months ago. I tried to make this a little bit longer, but I am not much of a fan of this series so I couldn’t write more. Anyway, here are my thoughts of the series and the movie.
Okay. Watching this series was…okay. Did I enjoy watching this? Not much. But for some point, I wasn’t able to drop it. I actually finished this, even the movie. So nice of me.
Anyway. My thoughts?
This anime is not worth your time. Theres no definitive plot for the series. It tried to have one but its not strong enough. The worldbuilding was meh, and the pacing was not worth noting. And could someone explain to me the purpose of their fights?? They are fighting ‘corrupt’ warship girls without giving explanations. They did try to explain it on the movie, but meh, just like the lackluster story.
The characters were likeable at least. But…they are too many to memorize. I think most of you guys know that I tend to forget stuff (RIP memories, i am getting old), so taking notes of all the characters was a no-no. The main character was your typical girl protagonist that you see on other animes. Nothing special about her. The infamous character (and face of the anime/game), Kongou, was too weird. She acts like a girl with a screw loose at times, then became very serious on some fight moments. Very weird.
The art and animation is average at best. I really don’t like the 3D animation during the fight scenes, it looks weird and it doesn’t match well with the background. Even though some of the choreography of the fight scenes looks good, its kinda weird to look at.
With all of those thoughts out of my head, I can pretty much say that I don’t recommend this series. You’ll just reget it afterwards, like what I am doing now.
But if you still want to watch it, then so be it.
Anyway, that is all.
Thanks for reading.
