Wow, adorable underage high school girls tied in with historic warships..what an original and not weird idea!!! We should have more tie in's with school girls and warships because right now there just isn't enough anime/manga/kancolle things associated with historic ships.

Asia has had Puka Puka Fleet for awhile. Only difference is that people will complain about that in the NA server. Just like High School Fleet and Blue Steel.

To be fair, they've been around for a while now, I think even before the game's first anime collab.

I never understand why people care about historic stuff, why are they even playing this game instead of reading a book if they care about that so much?

Ever noticed how they market this game? 

Not once have I ever seen WG put out an ad describing this as an anime/cartoon game....:Smile_teethhappy:

I understand their desperation at trying to keep people playing and paying, but for the average player who came to play warships, it seems like they've gone a bit far..

The game is about virtual warships firing guns and torpedoes at one another. No one is going to argue against that.

But what makes this game enjoyable is the gameplay.

History doesn't make for gameplay, ships in real life are not meant for balance, nor are they meant to be pleasing to look at.

That is why we have anime mods and content that can change that. We still have the same warships throwing shells and torps, but just with much more pleasing looks and gameplay

Why whine about something that's been on the Asia servers for two years? All they did was show what the community does on other regions. No different than our "sunday ship post" every nation/region has different tastes.

Really..I mean who can't get enough anime/manga stuff. It just adds so much to the game for all the grown men who just happen to really really like animated schoolgirls and warships. I mean it's as natural a connection as bread and butter, who can't see that????

They're trying to get more people on the Asian server to play or pay I suppose. Since WG is spending the money to put it in the game there, it's obviously going to end up here. Personally, the only anime I'd like to see is some Star Blazers but I'm doubtful a wave motion gun would be allowable. Regardless, if adults want these images then more power to them. I'll just turn off the content in-game and keep on playing.

What's funnier is that the reactions on other servers to the Puka Puka cover was more favorable than NA.

Seems like people think I'm being sarcastic in my support for puka puka and all anime/manga stuff. Really, I've changed...lets have more objectified women and scantily clad school girls, their relation to actual warships should be clear to everyone.

Hey, I thought you were all about the historically accurate streams?? 

But honestly guys, if you don't like the anime stuff, you can disable it in port.  Let the anime people have their fun, and let WG make more money.  (I disable all skins other than the default)

I enjoy my High School Fleet content.

  • HSF Harekaze with Misaki
  • HSF Musashi with China
  • HSF Graf Spee with Thea

Anime & manga that are related to history (they always are) can bring interest in that history. To me, Japan remembers their past more than us in the US. Kantai Collection for example, to me shows how much Japan still remembers their past and the history behind those ships are what made me signup for World of Warships CBT. While in the US, unless you watch the History or Military channel, that history is not easily identifiable with other people.

Your choice of images was no accident. Especially with the location of that cat's tail. OP needs to understand that anime fanbois see them not as pictures, but as magic mirrors.

The admiral understands perfectly.

I don't even see how these are supposed to be objectified girls...

Like seriously, no cleavage, no super short skirt showing half of [ehem], no conveniant wind or whatever, no F-sized bust, nothing.

I'm glad WG has relegated history to where it belongs..the past. Go to the WOWS website and we see ships bristling with eagles and sharks, funny cartoons and manga girls. Thanks goodness there's no mention of Savo Island or the Battle of the Eastern Solomons which occurred in August of 1942,  maybe if you did you can find mention of Vella Gulf from August of 43, but that's old stuff, no one who plays a warship games gives a crap about stuff that happened 70+ years ago. .More sci-fi, more anime, more cartoons is what we all want right????

Anime, manga, books, anything can be a medium to remember the pass. http://kancolle.wikia.com/wiki/Inazuma

"Pacifistic, as a reference to her rescue of 527 American and British sailors following the Second Battle of the Java Sea."

I would not have known this had I not looked at the Kantai Collection Wiki. That Wiki can have interesting info for some ships.

If it'll make you feel any better just do what I do and call it:

"The Puke-a Puke-a Fleet"

True.  I think they're pretty much the first anime OCs for World of Warships.

In regards to the history vs anime war, I'm a bit of both, though I frankly was raised off of a diet of Battle 360 and Dogfights before I watched my first war-equipment anime - Girls Und Panzer, which I found to be a fun romp.  Then again, I was always a bit of an anime fan with one of my all-time favorites being Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

In my opinion, whatever brings in more players is a win in my eyes because WG does things for both the historical and entertainment crowd.  With the money they gain from anime collabs, they work on nonprofit ventures like restoring the Texas or the Arizona Memorial.

Besides, Sister Sara is best culture!
