The hell is Kantai Collection and why it's more popular than 2hu?
C85 is literally flooded with that shit and I can't even say it's somehow good or anything. It looks bland and fucking boring, nothing to fap about.
The hell is Touhou and why it's more popular than KanColle?

>more popular than 2hu
It's very popular, but it's not more popular than 2hu.
>why it's more popular than 2hu?
It is nowhere near 2hu yet.
2hu is so popular that it get its own huge convention to remove the touhou flood from Comiket.
KanColle became pretty huge pretty fast though.
It's more popular than 2hu because it sexualizes children.
Did you make this thread here because /jp/ now deletes your Touhou vs Kantai Collection threads?
You know it to be true.
>kantai collection 17903
Touhou been here for years. Kancolle is year old at best. It's already insanely popular and with upcoming anime it's popularity will only increase. I hate it.
Sexualizes warships, anon
2hu still had double the number of doujin circles at C85, it's catching, but it hasn't taken over yet.
Who actually likes 2hu? A bunch of squealing weaboos.
Kancolle is something I can actually show my friends.
>The hell is Kantai Collection and why it's more popular than 2hu?
A browsergame about cute battleship girls. Apparently getting an anime soon and that anime will most likely be terrible.
It's not really more popular than touhou, it's just the "new hotness" at the moment.
I know it got more C85 uploads than 2hu on exhentai, but that's not exactly a good way to measure. I'd think people would upload more of the new hotness than the old and busted giant and 2hu still has Reitaisai which was basically created to reduce the amount of 2hu at Comiket, KanColle has nothing of the sort.
but 2hu also had an animu
Increase, yeah sure. But surpass Touhou? Come now, that's just silly. It's only gotten popular because of an anime announcement and otaku are rejoicing for animated, lewd loli's
They couldn't give a fuck about the game, they just want to fap
I don't know man, a japanese card game seems more weeboo than a bullet dodging game.
Didn't touhou still have much more circles than KanColle at C85?
And then there's that 2hu-only convention.
And 2hu stayed this popular despite being so old. Who knows if KanColle will still be this big in 10 years?
We'll see I guess.
>Kancolle is something I can actually show my friends.
Are all of your friends dirty lolicons and /a/ basement dwellers?
2hu never had an official animated OVA or series.
I got none, and the reason why i dropped out of college.
fuck my life
Never checked this out but it sounds good.
Next thing you'll tell me is that you show off your strike witches figurines to your co workers
For as long as I've been aware of most of the Internet I've been confused about just why touhou is as big as it is.
My friend has over a terabyte of music from that series
Why the fuck does that much even exist??
Because it has good music.
There are a lot of people doing fan versions of Touhou music for some reason.
I understand that the games have catchy music and I like some songs myself, but I never understood the obsession with almost every song.
He downloaded the whole tlmc? I only have about 75gb of the circles I like.
The hell is /v/ and why it's more popular than /a/?
4chan is literally flooded with that shit and I can't even say it's somehow good or anything. It looks bland and fucking boring. nothing to fap about
IOSYS had a big part in exposing people to 2hu
Why is she dressed like such a slut?
>why it's more popular than 2hu?
Not yet, catching.
Zuns worse than the people publishing kancolle especially with his hate for gaijins, bad art and hate for those who pirate his game when he never sells it outside comiket.
That and 2hu is just ponies with diaper hats.
>but I never understood the obsession with almost every song
It's just hype. People race each other to make their own versions of each song.
But touhou has good games and awesome music.
It's not just hype. There's a reason some songs are vastly more popular than others.
>2hu is just ponies with diaper hats.
I feel like you just talked shit about my waifu.
I think it has something to do with the browser.exe
But hype plays a large part, because EVERY song is popular, with almost no exception.
Sure, some songs are more popular than others, but even the less popular songs get lots of remixes and honestly, not all touhou songs are really great. At this point the songs don't get fanworks because they're good, but because they're 2hu music.
>ponies are just 2hu with diaper hats
>Kancolle is something I can actually show my friends.
Why japs do care about their ships anyway?
They sucked at WWII.
What the fuck is browser.exe? Is that the newest /b/ shit?
The new lostboy?
just wait till USN & Kriegsmarine
>In Hopeless Masquerade Toyosatomimi no Miko uses a Cape to teletransport between Space, this is highly similar to how Funny Valentine from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure uses the Betsy Ross flag to hop between dimensions.
>In the latest update (1.30v) Guard Poses were added, and coincidentally Miko's pose highly resembles "DOJYAA~~N" pose of Funny Valentine.
Why don't you own a cape that fuck around sapcetime, /a/?
>Kancolle is something I can actually show my friends.
>because EVERY song is popular
Stop hanging out around/using fanwank communities as a basis, then.
Although, you know what, yes every touhou song is good compared to most shit that passes as music nowadays.
Also, the style of touhou music lends itself easily to remixing.
>Why japs do care about their ships anyway?
>They sucked at WWII.
Do you even history anon?
The main reason why Touhou got popular is because of it's music and somewhat fanservice characters see Flandre. The music spawned a bunch of fanmade covers and it was good enough for the japs to turn into MADs that passed over on to youtube and became YTPMV material. The games are decent bullethells too.
Meanwhile all I know about Kancolle is that its a shitty cardgame with loli characters and the only character I know and find somewhat attractive compared to the others is Shimakaze and her butt. But I dont see it passing Touhou in popularity in any way unless the anime turns out decent.
I meant that every 2hu song gets remixes.
Some of the songs are great, but others are no more than generic video game themes, yet they get remixes too. Because they're 2hu music.
The savior anime needs.
The sprites and music are the only good things about HM.
>somewhat fanservice characters see Flandre
Completely false. If you've ever played the games or read ZUN's comments, you know this is 100% wrong.
How is Flandre a fanservice character?
Also Flandre is vastly more popular in the secondary western fandom than in japan. Remilia actually beats her out in almost every popularity contest over there. It's not even particularly close.
KanColle can't compete with and old and trusted name.
Kancolle is a bit over 9 months old.
Well it has a huge userbase too big to just be otaku.
Well, of course, it's popular. It's the same reason there's 500 xXxKiritoxXx's in every MMO.
But you're mixing up the order. There's remixes of every song because touhou is popular, not the other way around.
Touhou became popular because of: luck, great music, world and characters good material for fanon, pretty games, unique feel.
Holy shit, Kuro no Basket.
What the fuck
Why Kuroko is so fucking high even? Never understood that shit!
No, it's been around for a while. I've seen shimakaze fanart at least two or three years ago.
>2hu is so popular that it get its own huge convention to remove the touhou flood from Comiket.
KanColle has its own convention too now. Here's one in Japan:
...and there's even a KanColle exclusive doujin event in Shanghai, China that's coming in next April or something.
You will never get to watch it though.
From what I've seen, Flandre is the most popular character because of her theme and because she's a blond loli-vampire. My point was that she gets the most attention outside of Japan.
>cute battleship girls
Hahaha, never fails to make me smile every time.
Fujoshit, do you even need to ask?
Fujoshi doujins - BL manga, bara, hard gay, bishounen, you know the drill.
I don't see how Kancolle can stay alive in its immense popularity after a year unless the anime does extremely well and those other games they release draw in the audience. The current flash game hype is sorta fazing out and I can see a lot of veterans not caring about it once they get their shipfus and shit.
That's wasn't official.
It's an animated fanwork, like a summer days dream basically.
A professional studio doing the animation doesn't change that.
ZUN wasn't involved and they even said that nothing about that glorified commercial is official.
I don't get Japan's obsession with WW2 machines...
That's not the only event, there's a shit ton of those and some are tied to irl places. Yubari for Yubari melon, Kinu for Kinu river.
>Do you even history anon?
We slapped japs and claimed Kurils.
Their fleet was shit.
Kancolle is pokemon except almost all of its game mechanics revolved around RNG and gambling. And like pokemon, most players naturally grow to like other characters they raised and used, this connection spews fanart and everything. Like gambling, most of the mechanics is designed to hook you, failed that craft or reach the boss? Try again, surely you can make it the next time!
Combined with the fact that it's voiced, have reference to each ship's service records and arguably decent character designs, you have something like Touhou; the setting is not set in stone allowing fans to explore but the there is a context to start with.
In case you guys weren't aware, when Comiket first began, the majority of participants were female. It was essentially a convention where women with like-minded interests could share art with one another. It was some time after the Sailor Moon era when men slowly became more involved in Comiket, and the rise in moe anime fuelled the transition. Still, today there are plenty of women who attend. Day 1 of Comiket is always Fujoshit, like Tiger and Bunny, Hetalia, and Kuroko no Basugay.
Can you imagine Slam Dunk popularity between the female otaku around '90?
That's probably like that too back then.
>I've seen shimakaze fanart at least two or three years ago.
Source to the oldest image? If anything the game started around March this year.
Given the information censor by the imperial government back in ww2 it's not a surprise that people still have delusions of grandeur about the Japanese empire.
To be extremely fair, you can't expect an island nation to keep up their industry with the damn U.S.
Even with the so called Midway flop, Japanese tenacity was amazing. And China and Philippines got their asses handed down by Japan.
>tfw I'm a pleb
>tfw I like both Kancolle and Touhou
>tfw I'm enjoying life
Seriously though, I don't think Kancolle can live as long as 2hu. I also see more doujin circles taking making music remixes of Kancolle, while I only find one or two music as good.
I don't actually think that Flandre is the most popular 2hu in the west, other than maybe on youtube where the absolute worst of the tertiaries reside and masturbate to her theme. But I don't really count those guys to the actual touhou fandom.
In communities where the people actually know a bit about Touhou she is''t exactly unpopular but doesn't seem to be a real favourite of many people. Ever been to a Touhousort thread on /jp/?
I think Reimu still takes the cake here.
In amount of english translations of doujins Remilia also still beats Flandre, but I know that's not really an accurate measurement and may just be because Remilia has so many more doujins than her.
>For as long as I've been aware of most of the Internet I've been confused about just why touhou is as big as it is.
The beauty of 2hu is that ZUN essentially waives copyright over the art and music, only requesting that you attribute him as the original creator. You can essentially do whatever you want with his works, which is why derivative doujin works are so prolific. Fans can create their own fanon, and people can create their own rehashes.
Time traveler! I've found you at last!
Honestly the most consistently popular characters are still the main characters, Reimu and Marisa
>Do you even history anon?
You are talking about all those Japanese ships raped into oblivion and that are now in the botom of the Pacific?
Anon, you're slow.
>music remixes of Kancolle
It's a bit sad though; Kancolle's music doesn't have as much diversity as Touhou but the combat music especially Fall's event is pretty good.
Fuck. You caught me, the great John Titor. An honest mistake, I still thought it's the year 2013.
Reimu also has the most porn
>Kancolle is something I can actually show my friends.
You prefer showing your friends WWII ships as girls that dress like sluts, with a huge Japanese ships circlejerk then showing your friends eldritch abominations wearing hats shooting each others with magical lasers?
Touhou has been on a slump for a while now, that probably helped Kancolle's popularity.
>girls that dress like sluts
Seriously. I can't be the only one who think the new 2hus from the most recent games are very unmemorable. Only one I can remember is Miko and that's only of how hard Hopeless Masquerade pushed her.
I prefer this cute abttleships doing cute things manga.
So when are we going see USS Iowa as a cute girl?
Her knees are showing, fucking slut.
Shouldn't surprise anyone. The main characters are always the most popular and get the most fanworks.
Flandre is pretty popular with the western "I don't actually know shit about touhou but like the characters"-crowd and that can give off the illusion of Flandre being more popular than she actually is.
But they're not. They're covered up.
>WWII ships as girls that dress like sluts
Pick the slut from this picture
I have absolutely no idea what kancerole or touhou are and it never stopped me from masturbating or having an enjoyable life.
What is your point op?
I've been fapping to those doujins a lot the past few months. I have no idea what it's about other than it's some browser game that I'm too lazy to learn how to play.
I think I know what you mean.
I was a huge fan and more or less still are, but I just stopped caring about the new games and 2hus after UFO.
I still love my favorite characters and follow the canon mangas and shit in hope of Remilia or Patchy appearing, but I almost completely stopped caring about the games.
those are pretty cool designs
Kantai Collection need a doujin of men dressed like planes taking turn on Yamato.
I like her too bad CVL are useless ingame
>Among these developers, Naoki Yoshida of Square Enix, who produced and directed Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, stated that Kantai Collection is Japan's answer to World of Tanks, and that he was impressed by the business model; meanwhile, Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA director Seiji Hayashi of Sega referred to the game as "innovative".
I am surprised that people on the Project DIVA team know the word 'innovative'.
Useless like all the Japanese carriers at Midway.
No clue, some of the futanari art is good, but outside of that it's fucking tripe, boring girls, shitty spinoff material ect. It's some VPN required pseudo-intellectual card game from what I can gather.
Even has it's own fuckheads making generals on /a/ veiled with "please don't discuss the game" when it should be in /vg/ or some shit.
> My point was that she gets the most attention outside of Japan.
Then continue like this. It's pretty easy to play, turning out to be the reason it is boring. Not worth a shit.
>generals on /a/ veiled with "please don't discuss the game"
What do they even discuss if not the game?
The anime isn't even out yet and you can't discuss a few 4koma or manga chapters in generals 24/7.
I feel like SA was the last iconic Touhou game, after that it all slumped towards mediocrity.
>The anime isn't even out yet and you can't discuss a few 4koma or manga chapters in generals 24/7
Not only can you discuss the official manga, you can also discuss the doujinshi.
Every single KanColle fan is worse than Touhou secondary (SDM/Cirno/Okuu/Chen fans).
If KanColle ever overtakes Touhou I think I'll just quit everything forever.
>Discuss non-canon material that belongs in sad-panda threads and is riddled with yuri garbage.
KanColle, ladies and gentlemen.
>If KanColle ever overtakes Touhou I think I'll just quit everything forever.
Is that a promise?
I hope you quit life as well. There is no reason to become personally upset because a bunch of people on the other side of the world like something that you don't.
Maybe I just have shitty memory but the reason I don't like KanColle as much is that the girls are not as visually striking as the 2hus are. Like, they look way too similar so it's hard to distinguish them.
>>Discuss non-canon material that belongs in sad-panda threads and is riddled with yuri garbage.
There's no porn in Kantai Kindergarten. There are plenty of non-H doujins out there.
Yeah, they don't have such a striking ugliness to them as the Touhous do.
Good, take your shitty shooter with bad art somewhere else.
It's still not canon, and is henceforth garbage.
You have a shitty memory
Sorry about that
Can we keep that to Flandre?
Remilia and Sakuya actually have quite a bit to offer for people who care about canon, they're among the characters with the most developtment and have a lot of appearances outside of EoSD. And the other SDM residents outside of those 3 aren't so super popular with the secondaries.
Shibafu girls all look like Shibafu girls, Shobon girls look similar to Shobon girls. It's the art style of the KanColle illustrators.
>The hell is Kantai Collection
Why do we seemingly have to have the same thread on a daily basis?
It has a wide variety of cute girls and is highly exploitable to the doujin market. That's all there is to it.
My only criticism is that the fanbase (on /a/ at least) just seems very forced.
>Work yourself into frenzy because Lottery and VPN are both bullshit.
>Hate something I've never experienced.
I really hope I'm not missing out on anything.
I am a fan of Kasen, I actually read official stuff for girls shooting each otehrs with magical lasers games. Halp.
Not really. Kancolle fanbase here is extremely circlejerky and elitist with their secret club, but they aren't that shitty.
You really aren't.
>My only criticism is that the fanbase (on /a/ at least) just seems very forced.
Vocal minorities on /a/, see: Yuri, DameDame!, WuG, Log Horizon.
Better than how zun treats his fans, straight out refuses to sign stuff for gaijins, sells his shit only at comiket then has the nerv to turn around and bitch about how people don't buy his shit.
That big tits submarine in the school swimsuit seems very fuckable.
What is her name? I need some doujins for research purposes.
Trying to turn two fanbases against each other and incite hate for KanColle?
Both are trash and belong on /jp/.
I-19, which is pronounced "iku" (not kidding)
>Better than how zun treats his fans, straight out refuses to sign stuff for gaijins
Really? I thought he was a bro, I mean he even drank a few beers with fucking moot, the king of faggots.
No it isn't. Iku is just her nickname.
一 = one = i(chi), the "chi" is omitted when reciting digits in serial numbers
九 = nine = kyu, ku
じゅうきゅう, motherfucker. Look it up.
For some reason there's some form of exception for moot, chances are zun knows he owns 4chan so famous fags hang out with famous fags, everybody was surprised as fuck when that first photo was posted a few years ago.
He's spreading disinfo in an attempt to get two fanbases to start biting at each other. ZUN's pretty nice to gaijin fans. He was in Taiwan once, and he signed my CD.
At least 2hus has more popular characters.
The only memorable character from KantaiShit are the loli Shimakaze something and the bigboobs Kongou.
Time Traveler! I've found you at last!
Are you asian or white
by the way, when he signed my CD, he even said 謝謝你的支持 (xiexie ni de zhichi, "thanks for supporting me"), albeit in a funny accent.
What if we combined Touhou and KanColle?
So... does Zun speak English?
ZUNbie ship pls go
IJA is worst IJ
IJA go home and stay home
IJN > shit > IJA
Beside the moeshit i just a shit social game or cardgame?
Is Reimu that popular in Japan? She's a cold bitch in the games.
Moot can proberbly afford his own personal translator after the new changes to googles captcha
There are no memorable 2hus.
he gets that Niconico guy to translate for him, I assume
I see that guy in every single damn photo with moot whenever he goes to nippon
You say it like if people give a shit about 2hu canon.
And yeah, she is. Believe or not main girls are more often than not the most popular girls of their series.
She's the main character, what do you expect?
Also cold bitches can be popular too.
WTF is she even good for?
Sorry for turning up late with this, but here you go.
But moot is so poor! He doesn't have money for that because people don't buy his passes or turn of adblock and 4chan cost so much money to run.
>You say it like if people give a shit about 2hu canon.
Sadly the people who don't outnumber them by now.
You know there are way more kancolle secondaries than 2hu, how many of you actually bother getting a proxy just to play a luck based web game? srsly? yfw it'll eventually turn out to be 2hu vs kancolle. or maybe even some kind of amateur mashup.
You mean the guy on the left?
Pretty sure he's a janitor
>listening to a jew's bullshit
>You know there are way more kancolle secondaries than 2hu
A cool fact with citations.
moot impersonator pls, you're not trying hard enough, or your not good enough
how to spot anonymous moot posts:
1. no capitalization
2. usually very concise, because he's lazy to type. he only becomes verbose when he posts with his capcode
3. gives off the mood that he can see everything you do
>Sadly the people who don't outnumber them by now.
They have always outnumbered. 2hu wouldn't be what it is nor reached the places it had if it had been kept 100% canon only. Fanon is the life and blood of 2hu.
no, not him. it's a white American guy with a kinda roundish, chubby face, and in photos he usually wears a shirt with his company logo (niconico.com) on it
I only know Kancol character from blue steel
>there are way more kancolle secondaries than 2hu
By proportion? Mmmmmaybe? By absolute numbers? Fuck. No.
But it didn't have to get to the point where people mistake fanon for canon. In some cases that fanon shit even directly contradicts the canon and the youtube-retards still mistake it for canon because they don't care enough to read up on the official sources.
I will take Apreggio's version over KanColle version any day.
Blue Steel Haruna > KanCol Haruna.
I'm a casual and I can recognize at least half of them instantly (not counting PC-98)
There are more 2hu's than bits on one of my 4TB HDDs, every autistic nerd makes his own.
uniquey characters, no steal
>Blue Steel Haruna > KanCol Haruna.
Apreggio was fucking shit, and you have terrible tastes.
>every autistic nerd makes his own
I've only come across a fanmade "original 2hu, do not steal" once, probably because I tend to avoid secondary breeding grounds.
Please tell me that you were exaggerating hard.
There are already so may 2hus, everyone should find a girl he likes there. Where would these fanmade characters even fit into the story?
People don't care, they just want to have fun with the characters.
Does anyone actually expect the KanColle anime to be good or even decent?
>not popular with tertiaries
At least in blue steel I still can see "a ship" as a ship not like a girl with a ship costume and called her a ship.
I bet you read I-401 as "I - yon hyaku ichi".
It's wrong. That's not how you read numberings in the military.
Not as much as Flan, Remi and Sakuya at least.
But it doesn't matter that much, because Patchouli has a bit of canon personality too. Not as much as Remilia or Sakuya, but she got some development post-EoSD.
To me it's a big difference if you just like the character and don't care about canon at all or if you try to find out about the characters canon personality in case it's a recurring character.
Fuck honeycomb shields
Wait, what do the terms "primaries", "secondaries", "tertiaries" and "quaternaries" mean in this context again?
It'd be around Strike Witches level.
> not shi maru hito
>not four oh one
Primaries are basically the "tru 2hu fans" who care about canon and play the games.
Secondaries are the people who like the characters and maybe tried playing the games once or twice, but ultimately don't care about canon or mistake the fanon shit someone told them for canon.
Tertiaries are the people like the ones who only browse 2hu music remixes on youtube and got their "knowledge" about 2hu from the comment section under those videos.
Shittier Strike Witches at best.
>not "yū rei tī"
>I think Reimu still takes the cake here.
It's Satori, in my experience. That might just be /jp/, you probably shouldn't use them as a yardstick to measure the western fanbase as a whole.
I guess Iku's library introduction is wrong as well since she says it.
It's a self-masturbatory and elitist phase to describe people who aren't in to what you like as much as you do.
So people who haven't played the games, don't religiously follow 2hu, and only hold general knowledge are not part of the true, elite club.
I shudder at the thought of what quaternaries would be.
I will fully use all of my bait when it's air.
Nah, Satori isn't THAT popular in the west.
She's up there, but not on Reimu's level.
The more popular SDM characters are way above Satori in popularity too.
/jp/ has a tendency to dislike the more popular girls because they're popular. I don't want to call them 2hu hipsters, but that's basically what it comes down to.
Secondary is the best.
Tell Japan to invent their own numbers then.
They already have their own spelling.
That's 9-0-1 dumbass.
I'd have been fine with him using it if he'd used it correctly.
They're probably the people who go "I found this cool pic of an anime girl on myspace, isn't she cute? She's got blonde hair, and colored lightblub wings. I have no idea what her name is, or what show she's from".
/a/ - Linguistics
northerner mandarin is shit tier though, it'd be better sounding to use "sei lihng yat".
>I bet you read I-401 as "I - yon hyaku ichi".
You should really go edit the Japanese wikipedia since it uses いごうだいよんひゃくいちせんすいかん
2hu is kill
Oh man. I should have been prepared for this, but I'm not.
I think other Bahasa languages also use that. I know a bit of Bahasa Malaysia myself and it's the same.
I will never stop fapping to Remilia so as long as I'm there it can't possibly be kill.
Fuck normie collection. It brought a bunch of neo-/v/ into /jp/
Kancolle is made by 2hu fans so that they can force 2hu discussion in /a/.
Best. Conspiracy. Theory. Ever.
Alright seriously, blaming /v/ for SnK and Watamote has some backing, but really? And Kancolle threads can be pretty autistic; it's hardly "normies."
There will never be Sakuya in anime ;_;
Sakuya is mai waifu btw
Because there's a 2hu in Kancolle.
blame the speedslut and Nully
you know what i mean
pro-Remilia Elite Force Commander pls stay and stay stay
Yeah, I can totally see /v/ playing a Japanese browser game that you need a japanese proxy to play. That is the kind of game they usually spend their time on.
I'm not him, but he has my deepest respect for his excellent taste.
well, /v/ is too hipster to like and enjoy mainstream games like Call of Duty, what's to say that this isn't the hipster flavor of the year?
"It's so difficult to get into this game, man I'm so awesome for playing this game. Since it's so niche, I'm such a cultured person for liking it". Same reason why /v/ enjoyed Yume Nikki and flow for a certain period of time.
I have a 2hu waifu too and I'm glad that there won't be an anime.
There are several reasons. I don't want my waifu to get a canon voice that's different than the one I imagine her to have and I don't want even more secondaries and tertiaries who know nothing but talk as if they're 2hu-experts in the fandom.
>/v/ liking KanColle
Literally the most retarded thing I've read today.
How do you even know what /v/ likes so specifically?
Touhou is not even in the same league as KanColle.
Kancolle does have real mainstream appeal.
They turn up to /jp/ and make threads every now and then.
"Hi /jp/, /v/ here. Just played Yume Nikki a while ago, it was so awesome, I genuinely got scared when Uboa showed up. Are there any other cool Japanese games are are spooky like this one?"
Nice. Is that some imitation of early 90s-era manga?
>real mainstream appeal.
Is this supposed to be a plus?
Why on earth do you care what a bunch of idiots do on youtube? Does it really matter?
That's not very specific. Call of Duty is the series that killed gaming or whatever, and /v/ used to come to /jp/ about shitty RPGmaker japanese games.
Touhou must have some sort of mainstream appeal when even League or LeLgends, the most casual mainstream game ever, references it.
It's Kochira Katsushika-ku Kameari Kōen-mae Hashutsujo
The oldest and longest on-goin manga series in Japan.
Kochikame in short form.
Are you stupid? Touhou is more mainstream than Kancolle. Everyone knows about Touhou.
>In an interview with a veteran of the "Yahagi", the interviewer happened to bring up the popular browser based card game Kantai Collection. To the interviewer's surprise, the veteran hadn't just heard of the game, he also played it.
>Later, the interviewer asked, "Kancolle's Yahagi is cute, isn't she?" to which he replied "Yes, she's a good girl."
Exactly. Touhou has even been in the Guinness Book of Records, is a mascot on the front page of 2channel, and all sorts of other stuff. A lot of people in Japan know about Touhou.
>everyone knows about Touhou
Touhou is even more otaku/niche centric than stuff like Idolmaster.
Disregard that guy statement, he was an idiot.
Just because some mangaka reference it in his 'mainstream' work doesn't mean it was more mainstream than anything.
Most 2hu musics are good compositions in their own right, but generally crippled by the shit sinth/MIDI sounds used in the games. Amateur musicians get inspired to do instrumental arrangements and add vocals in multitudes of styles because there's so many blank spaces to fill and they get a catchy melody to work from as a starting point. The hard part in composing is creating that core catchy melody. Not to say that it doesn't also take talent to make a good sounding arrangement.
>Touhou has even been in the Guinness Book of Records
I want to see this
Yahagi is a maiden.
LoL's references came from some weaboo female who was part of the team; not because anything Japan-related is mainstream.
>comparing 10+ years franchise with franchise that's not even a year
The fuck? Stop doing this shit and back to >>>/jp/
They come to other communities, even 4chan, and take part in discussions and spread their shit.
Also some of the fanon things are already so deeply rooted in the fandom that you encounter them everywhere. Flandre often gets portrayed as a crazy muderloli who's locked away in the basement. 80% of the fandom probably knows her as only that. And while she's indeed crazy in canon, her profile makes sure to state that she's a docile girl, there's also no source directly stating that she's locked away and the few times she actually appears outside of EoSD she is not in the basement, not locked and not alone. In Bohemian Archive she's even outside.
The same could be say for >>100473006
lol shut it nerd 8-)
>Imperishable Night (above)
Experts were hired to write that article.
KanColle is closer to the mainstream hit Puzzle & Dragon than Touhou with it's large but isolated fanbase.
Reminds me of the times when /a/ told me to fuck off to /jp/ and vice versa.
Is that even IN?
He can't go back there because threads like this one get deleted by now. That's why he must now make them here.
Comiket is originally a fujoshi convention.
Have you watched DxD?
You're reading the wrong part. Bottom of image, not left of image.
Think of them as 'tiers of autism'. If you're looking down on someone who also like touhou, it forms an abstracted strata with you on one tier and them below you. If someone is looking down on you, there are now three tiers.
It's basically like the artificial social constructs of the aristocracy: none of it means anything but it lets you pretend you're better than other fans and if you're lucky, they'll buy it too.
Touhou canon is largely shit.
>most prolific fan-made shooter series
That's pretty trying hard to give Touhou a "world record".
>game with most ships that look like girls
there, I've designed a world record to give to KanColle. someone get me the hotline for Guinness.
Still Shanghai Alice should technically be the one.
Cave makes money selling danmaku shooters. ZUN doesn't, because he hates money.
What, most prolific?
Just as stupid as "First game to feature boss warnings"
If you go that indept, you might as well look at every single videogame made in the 80s and early 90s and give each of them a world record for some new feature it had
Satori is pretty cute.
>Have you watched DxD?
I know about almost identical design but you know it's still not Sakuya.
It's even Touhou "fanmade"?
The same people making and selling the games.
I can't believe that was a coincidence, seeing how popular Sakuya is.
They tried to hook in a few 2hu fans with that design.
Due to overwhelming popularity of Kancolle, ZUN decides to approve the anime in 2015. By Trigger.
I was thinking fame. We all know ZUN. I'd wager most of us never head of CAVE up until now.
Trigger prefer KanColle.
just like OniAi had a Youmu clone, and SanHime had a Marisa clone?
Orin is Inferno Cop's daughter
Trigger confirmed for bros.
Sakuya is very delicious ;_;
that would probably be most famous, and how did you never have heard of Cave?
people from Guinness in charge of translating "doujin"
I actually meant on /jp/, not in general. I have no idea what the western fanbase at large thinks, since my exposure to them is /jp/ on one side and youtube comments on the other. There's presumably some middle ground, but I'm ok enjoying touhou by myself.
During a visit to Japan, moot convinces ZUN to allow a Touhou anime. A the same time, moot convinces him that money is an amazing thing, as he shows ZUN his pockets full of shekels made from 4chan passes. "Wow, I wish I could do that," exclaims ZUN.
I just woke up and the fuck is going on here?
Reimu, it doesn't look like you just woke up. It looks like someone's just bitten you, and you're recovering from a heroin overdose.
I mean - Touhou is probably the biggest otaku franchise existing and there's no way that someone who writes a LN or manga or makes an anime isn't aware of that.
The obvious similarity must have been intentional.
I'd bet that an official Touhou anime would actually be even worse than the Kancolle anime, especially if ZUN is taking a big part in the writing for it.
I watched inferno cop yesterday. Trigger is so fucking based.
I like how they did something so awesome with almost nothing.
Someone needs to throw money at them.
"Doujin" means self-published and Touhou is a doujin game series because ZUN publishes them himself.
Guinness probably translated that to fanmade.
Touhou is of course not fanmade. It's all ZUN's intellectual property.
Well, for many artists is Kancolle way more interesting than Touhou.
They can do things with the characters without to fear the whining of fancannon nazis.
Why is Trigger so based?
not unless he gets them to write "Unofficial derivative anime work" and affirm to everyone that they're making the fanon storyline up in their animation. ZUN doesn't have to write anything.
It was intense night.
>but I'm ok enjoying touhou by myself.
That's probably the best way to enjoy it.
>knife and fork
for what purpose?
Is that basically all of Touhou anime project so far?
Good that Trigger isn't in charge of the KanColle anime.
I don't want to see a flash anime like Inferno Cop or Kill La Kill.
If they make a 2hu anime, ZUN would write the storyline just like he wrote the stories for the Touhou manga.
Japan community is different than western.
Western community is a shithole.
Are you saying that Bahasa languages have similarities between them or something?
Selfishness, Haruna won't allow it.
Three Fairies anime would be great.
I enjoyed the manga.
Their animators draw waifus instead of drawing anime.
USA is old and busted from the yesteryear, this is new hotness for the 21st century
Dude, if you where at comiket, you'd take that statement back. Touhou was fucking everywhere, while kantai collection had a big, but at the same time its own spot.
At least they are Harunafags.
Good taste after all. They should just remove Imaishi.
I wonder if Japs will do pilgrimage to Leyte Gulf because of Kancolle's popularity.
I doubt anyone would even like to make a 2hu anime since they'd have to deal with ZUN controlling the entire process.
They all would like to because it'd rain money, no matter how bad the anime would be.
Series Composition: moot
Scripwriter: Mari Okada
Well, because of the doujinshi nature of everything.
I don't think you can find enough members for the production commitee to get an anime budget.
Maybe the companies would, but all the people actually making it wouldn't.
And Mari Okada is still the worst part of the staff list.
don't worry, there may come a point where ZUN becomes desperate for some quick cash (need to pay off the mortgage, unexpected wife pregnancies, the Japanese flu...), and will turn to the anime industry to sort that out.
>implying the Japan community is better
Remember the whining about the VAs for the fanmade anime?
>Series Composition: moot
to the trash it goes
>Finland version is 90% empty
Daiz fix this shit
Touhou animation? They better make a fucking awesome movie, and made by Madhouse.
Official Touhou anime written by ZUN featuring: no budget, no action, no plot, no comedy besides characters making weird faces, no relevance for anything, new characters who do nothing, cameos of the entire cast in every episode
That's ZUN's Touhou anime.
What is more niche: Touhou, Kancolle, or Idolm@ster?
I don't like it when people join dicussions about canon when they have absolutely no idea.
KanColle <<< Touhou <<<<<< Idolmaster
imagine this scenario
>ZUN announces that he is repealing the "no commercial works" clause of his copyright
>every single animation studio wishes to ride on the cash cow, they all compete to create a Touhou anime
>we end up with multiple Touhou anime shows within the same year, some even the same season on different TV channels, days and timeslots
>a Touhou anime with Gainax interpretation, Shaft interpretation, JC Staff interpretation...
>normalfag japs get pissed off that for 3 months, the only thing on TV is rehashes of Touhou
>meanwhile fans are drowning in Touhou, and are throwing money here and there to get BDs
>Japan is lifted out of recession, Shinzo Abe repeals the no-war clause of the constitution, and proceeds to invade North Korea to secure natural resources
one can only wish.
>cameos of the entire cast in every episode
It's more something that the mangaka of WaHH would do than ZUN
>yfw even /jp/sies have backlogs for music
>one can only wish.
Yes, since the situation is so hilariously unrealistic on all levels.
I want a 2hu SoL anime about cute youkais doing cute and funny things.
IM@S already had anime. PS3 having no region lock and one translated PSP game also helped its popularity
Nobody watched Touhou anime. inb4 What Touhou anime?
Meanwhile people needs to use workarounds and some basic moonrune knowledge to play Kancolle.
No fun allowed? I bet you're the type who doesn't go overseas, and then brags that you ride an American bald eagle to work every day, whilst firing your M-16 rifle in the air.
>Orin is Mike Haggar's daughter
You're drunk. Go to bed.
Because it's pure pandering?
Those general threads are bad. At least the anime was somehow enjoyable.
ZUN must be sober then.
iM@S is just generic cute girl generator. At least Kancolle and Touhou have certain backstory the fanbase can dig in.
This. I just want Reimu going around visiting other touhous
Don't worry, Commie will release a translated client soon.
so it'll be Non Non Biyori, Gensokyo edition?
More like K-On, Gensokyo edition.
>Touhou anime written by Anno
and get everyone banned
Gensokyo Miko no Nichijou
Or regular Nichijou, that would be cute
Who will be voiced by Sugita?
Touhou music is really good, catchy, and popular. That's a dangerous mix.
The games are also fun for the 1% of the fanbase that actually plays the game.
And the fanbase has built a pretty impressive fan canon of all the characters over the year. Though to be honest I can't really tell why, a lot of the characters are unmemorable and drawn by a 5 year old.
That could work well as a 13 episode anime, considering how many 2hus there are.
1 episode of shenanigans in the forest with Marisa and Alice, 1 episode at the SDM because Remilia throws a party again, another episode in the village, stuff like that.
NO pls. And I get the feel that kancolle animation will just be like this.
I hope kancolle animation is more like Upotte or Girls und panzer than K-on or tamako market.
>Though to be honest I can't really tell why, a lot of the characters are unmemorable and drawn by a 5 year old.
ZUN's drawing is bad, but NOT that bad.
I don't really mind ZUN's drawing being bad, because he makes up for it with good music composition. Note how I said composition, and not production, this guy really needs to do something about those blaring MIDI trumpets.
>And the fanbase has built a pretty impressive fan canon of all the characters over the year
Which was fucking unnecessary because there's actual canon information about some characters and the fanon shit often directly contradicts it.
Also please don't use "fan canon", because canon is exactly the opposite.
>not "THE HIGHEST OF ALL HIGHS WE ARE!!"
2hu anime will be about Maribel and Renko and finally connect them both to Gensokyo and Yukari
Писал нихон про.
I exaggerate of course, but it's not very good and a lot of characters aren't memorable. Maybe if he only had 2 games it'd be different but I can't name many characters from 14 and 13.
There's the headless girl, the chinese jumping zombie, fox girl, and the fun ends here "fuck you" mc screenflip.
>don't use fan canon
I don't know what other word I'd use. Made up backstory?
While I can see your point, you're on 4chan and it's 2014. It's a bit late to be annoyed about shitty idiots of any type.
Isn't that just a short-hand of fan canon.
ruwiki = XYNTA CYKA
dewiki = Herrenvolk
Anything but a Touhou SoL anime, especially not with ZUN as writer. Almost all the manga are this already, with characters doing nothing and all events feeling like excuses for cameos.
Derived from canon, but doesn`t denote canon
>Koishi's Everyday Meals
A detached, YKK-ish view of Gensokyo would be awright. I don't think anyone would make a good job of animating danmaku battles anyway.
That doujin was basically the reason that fanon > canon when it comes to touhou.
Now I realize no one will be able to animate danmaku battles better than I play it in my head.
Both touhous shooting and casting beatiful master pieces of art while dodging then while the camera rotates then without any of those 3D shit.
That'd be awesome.
PV "Fragments" by narco&capo
>Not Koishi Komeiji's Heart-Throbbing Adventure
Rewritten by Anno
Not really. Many ppl itt has posted the statistic already so you should already know you were wrong.
The problem is when will it fade out. Maybe it will be reduced to 1/10 amount of circles in three years. That's what happened to Haruhi and K-On! But I don't remember if Haruhi and K-on get 2000 circles right when it was aired. Probably not.
I actually enjoy that, but dear god no, not as an anime.
Nigger, after Byakuren Zuns Music went from Castlevania I can listen to this repeating stuff for all eternity tier, it's so good to fucking supermarket music tier then to fucking old mobile phone game music tier, and his characters have strayed away from the original formula also looking less conformative, in addition to the monstergirl pandering that was the previous games.
Touhou a shit.
[ X ] don't change your phrases while writing
13 had some good tracks like Old Yuanshen.
Haven't played 14 enough to say anything about it yet.
Are there any lesbian KanColles?
Outside of fanon, 2hu is remarkably lesbian-free, I wouldn't expect that with so many girls.
Canonically, there's lesbian incest.
Can they do that?
Wasn't the player supposed to self-insert as the male commander or something in KanCol?
You can self-insert as female admiral.
You mean like, 2 games? it's too early to quickly judge the decline.
People complain about Touhou past SA since it took on religious theme. Of course the design and music would be a bit strayed from the usual theme. Meanwhile, I think the characters that aren't related to the religion theme still retain ZUN's old touch, like Kogasa, Nue, Kasen, etc.
This kill the Touhou.
Yamashiro is gay for her onee-sama.
Ooi is hard gay for Kitakami.
Hiei is gay for Kongou.
Ise wants Hyuuga's love and admiration.
Hyuuga can't stop talking about Mogami.
Kaga's death line implies some sort of close connection to Akagi.
Ooi and some other lesbian sister ships
There are affectionate sister ships. You still have to put on yuri goggles for the thing to work though, and some people take leaked confession lines where some of the girls don't exactly accept the admiral as their love interest as a sign of yuri.
It's still mostly straight, with a chunk fanbase that likes yuri. There's always a yuri love and hate war here and there.
Chiyoda for her sister, Chitose
Chikuma for Tone
Tatsuta for Tenryuu
Sendai for night battles.
Tatsuta is pretty gay, I'll give you that.
The closest you can get to canon lesbians in KanColle is by overanalysing the voice lines. The characters have no "actual" background other than them being based on WW2 ships. Most often the pairings are based on the ships the ship girls represent sinking together or something similar.
Why are the designs so good? Especially of pic related.
I have no idea what the game is about, but I got a lot of C85 daki covers just for the character design.
>There are affectionate sister ships.
You have to be really delusional not to see Ooi and Chiyoda to be lesbian though.
I don't know about KanColle but Kiso is pretty badass.
Maybe I'll try it out sometime.
It's still up to the fanon since its pretty much open its not like you can't shove a dick in them. Sure there are little sisters that shows a great affection towards their sisters but they do warm up to their admirals. It's not like the admirals are canonically male. Still,that does not mean they wont take the D if the admirals wish them too.
Wide ships by Ume when?
Kiso is pretty bro-tier.
Yes, because lines expressing huge admiration and affection is yuri.
Isn't the staff account following Ume on Twitter?
Please read Chiyoda's time report and tell me she's not lesbian.
Their ships were some of the best in the world. It was beaten by numbers, not quality.
And how is this related to anything I say?
Are you special kind of stupid?
>Oh , geez, Ooi, stop touching me- hey, 'tis the Admiral. Da heck ya' doing?
I don't even understand what Kancolle is. It's like it appeared out of nowhere.
>ship girl by Yabuki
>ship girl by Kantoku
>Are you special kind of stupid?
I could ask you the same thing.
I loved that she unsheathe her sword when greatly damaged.
I tried playing Kancolle last year, the game is really really bad It's just grindy as shit with shit gameplay and music
I still don't get why many idiots droning so hard praising the gameplay on this shit, the RNG is even worse than PSO2
For the Comicket thing I don't mind when Kancolle dominating it at first but what we got from C85 is only Kancolle doujins full of Shitmakaze, Kongou and Atago, there's many girl on it but the fanbase is ignoring it and makes doujins of the same shit girls
And I tried going to the Kancolle threads and holy shit the fanbase is worse than 2011 IM@S threads, It's full of blogging, strawpollshit, namefags, newfags using email, "hurr kancul wins comikot" and sometimes I seen they making fanfic and using memes like le epic doge maymays eksdee.
If you guys wondering why there's an Influx of newfags on last year SnK, Hataraku, muh DATABASE WOWOWO, KLK and Kancolle brought out many newfags, Kancolle thread brought out newfags on /jp/, /jp/ is on problem with sudden newfags Influx most of them are Kancollefags from wiki and they always crosslinking to /a/ thread, Kancolle wiki brought out Idiots from animesuki and dannychoo dick riders
Coastal Defense Ships are coming soon, and they're smaller than destroyers. inb4 Rustle and Inuboshi make a few of the designs.
Average Kancolle fan:
>I tried playing Kancolle last year
Put a bit more effort into your kawaiiposting.
Nice copy pasta bro
last year is literally a few weeks ago
Goddamn, my brain is still in 2013 mode.
He sounds exactly how I imagined those fat disgusting rapists in h-manga.
Nope, not even close with all these resources and devmats you can and should try making RJ or Ise in LSC
The threads are shit, but the only thing you got right are namefags (one of the cunts is actually posting in this thread). Game questions by new players are also rather annoying and they should be kept to /jp/.
None of the other stuff happens (unless you mean blogging about their gameplay). I'm putting you down for trout.
/jp/ was the one that made the Kancolle wiki.
>RJ or Ise
Why not just use regular construction? It's much cheaper and the chances for good ships isn't that bad (except for subs).
It used to be the case that all the admins were /jp/sies, but it's not like that anymore. I think only 2 or 3 of them are from /jp/, the rest are just randoms from all over the internet.
I want to fuck Sanae.
>and the chances for good ships isn't that bad
Son, it's time to step back from LSC daillies and remember how much time and effort you put in to craft that S-holo ship unless of course you're those with filthy S-rank luck.
>Why not just use regular construction?
Because you'll be guaranteed a Myoukou.
It's joke you aim for yamato or taihou but get RJ or Ise because fuck you
Is he masturbating while playing? I can understand stuttering and all but he talked like he was suffering from a heart attack.
Wait, you aren't?
I can't. RNG kills my boner.
I have no idea who's who, and who comes from /jp/. Here's the list.
>being this denial
Sure brah, go check archives for my epic copypasta!
keep up for epic shitposting too!
There's many newfags using nametag on the threads and there's only 1 namefags that I know he's not an newfags
For the other stuff It's happen, I've been on the threads since september there's many Fanfic bullshit on the threads and epic meme shitposting, the threads are ok at first but it's getting shittier since someone post an /a/ screencap on the wiki, It's about someone forgot removing his API link for posting screencap on the threads and /a/ scrap many ships on his ID with his API link, that actually made many newfags to the threads and making it shittier.
And the Wiki now controlled by Facebook fuckers
They even make Kancolle Wiki Fanpage on Facebook.
The problem with a "wikia" community like this is that it's inevitable that eventually people from Facebook will flood it. It doesn't matter who starts it, whether it was /jp/, /a/, /hm/, MyAnimeList, or the Facebook crowd, if the wiki is to be publicly open to all, you're always going to get shitters.
lol, son, all of their early-war naval victories were because they had surprise and brought more ships to the point of contact. They got wrecked as soon as they lost numerical superiority.
>/jp/ using wikia
color me surprised.
It started at /jp/. However, the original admin had no taste in design and decided a bright orange template. While enduring the glaring orange, the groundwork was set, starting from adding individual ship's stat and organising ship pages. Somehow, /jp/ managed to override admin control, install a new admin, change the template to the current one we see now and continues working from there. During 4chan panel, there was talk around setting a FAQ page because back then repeated question was still being thrown about and when /jp/ got butt fucked by moot, the FAQ page was created. There's also the facebook fiasco as well and the wiki was a platform for them to meet-up. In a way, it had spurred some experienced players to actually finish up a lot more things.
> I've been on the threads since september there's many Fanfic bullshit on the threads
I need to see some examples of this.
Why? It's widely known around here that the Wiki was initially created by /jp/, but one of the admins in charge gave adminship to a wide bunch of people. People from all sorts of places ended up flooding in, and non-/jp/sies became admins. The beginnings of the Wiki were quite modest, it's just somehow we've ended up at this stage we see today.
>There's also the facebook fiasco
I was just surprised at /jp/ using wikia due to /jp/'s hate of the touhouwiki hosted on wikia.
Hint: It starts with a Danny and ends with a Choo.
Some differences, but mainly similar, yes.
My fucking sides.
I play Kancolle and trust me, the workaround and moonrune problems are actually pretty small.
Yup, she doesn't like being touched at all. Not by Ooi, or by you. Don't see any yuri here.
>not Maria-Juanita Rodriguez-Calderón-Sanchez
This has nothing to do with anime
I've only been browsing them since October/November, but unless you just mean people using the same old memes such as "Akagi is a glutton" and "Kaga is a lesbian; she mentioned Akagi once!", then I don't understand.
You mentioned doge in your previous post; I've never seen that posted in a Kancolle thread, I would stop browsing them too if that was the case. I'm from the UK though so I might miss some late night threads though.
In regards to Fanfic, I would also like you to show us some examples like >>100477445
said. You don't mean things like the translated 4koma do you? I'm not sure if they are official, but they are harmless.
Back then, there wasn't really much debate over how the wiki was to be formed. Nobody was willing to provide server space and host an independently made wiki, and it was decided that the quickest and easiest solution was to rely on Wikia. Although shitty (Wikia does not respect your freedoms), it was a basic beginner's step towards creating the Wiki that was desired by the /jp/ community back then.
The Touhouwiki problem arose because Wikia staff power-tripped and overstepped, banning all the admins there and implementing new admins that they personally found favourable. The original creators of the Touhou Wikia wanted to shut it down and move somewhere else after Wikia introduced the new forced and shitty web 2.0 design; once the Wikia staff found out, they took action.
Danny choo introduced kancolle to facebook. /jp/ cries. Wiki is probably the only thing accessible for new players (even the FAQ was written for them). The rest is history. Oh, and somene defaces the wiki, making it even worse.
/jp/ needed a place to organise their information and the wikia is probably the most suitable platform.
It wasn't the most suitable platform, it was the easiest option available at the time. Nobody wanted to go out of their way and do things properly (like the current Touhouwiki, independently hosted and powered by donations), there wasn't much else that could be done, apart from not making a wiki at all.
the only thing /jp/ uses the wiki for nowadays is to propagate the epic 'read the wiki' meme
Because it's true. Most of the questions that warrant such answers can be answered there. It's not just the English wiki, google translating wikiwiki would also help them answer their question.
that's not a meme, that's a catchphrase. a "meme" would be deceptive Wo.
I don't go to /jp/ and I haven't been to the /a/ threads in weeks but I don't see how that's a "le epic meme" when that's what you're SUPPOSED to do.
What are you talking about? Kancolle /jp/ threads are a lot more rigid than other /jp/ threads. Someone used emoticons merely as references and got told to stop because he used emoticons. Sometimes even one-liner greentext is not allowed.
There's some blogging, yes, but there's no strawpolls, few namefags, few to no newfags using email, no "hurr kancul wins comikot", no fanfic, and no memes. Anyone who tries is told to "fuck off back to /a/", where there's little to no mention of Comiket, newfags using email, or memes like doge maymays eksdee.
that was true some time ago, now it's spammed by shitheads as an unfunny reply to anything, including posts that had nothing to do about gameplay, and idiots who didn't bother to take their own advice before posting it out of reflex
Just like now, I went there to ask question and I got told to read the wiki and fuck off to here.
I bet he is trying too hard. What a condescending bellend.
The 4koma is official. Though, occasionally there'll be fanwork from Pixiv some anons decide to translate for the hell of it and then run off elsewhere.
You forgot to mention their mascot. "Wo-tan"
Were you the guy asking whether running subs for 4-2 is viable?
No, but I am pertaining to that kawaiiposter with Lambda as a reaction image.
Obviously, he doesn't go to /jp/ thread.
Try asking something at Kancolle /jp/ thread.
Post result here.
This is going to rile them up.
I'm not surprised if OP was told to fuck off from there and /jp/ and started a thread here. This thread have nothing to do with anime and manga.
Better still, reply to everything that remotely sounds like a question with "read the fucking wiki" or something, whether it's related to the game or not.
I don't think so, OP was asking something else entirely.
What kind of fuckers run Wikia? I thought they didn't care much about what content was created with their pages.
I guess it went like this:
The Touhouwikia admins didn't like the new web 2.0 design and planned to delete the wiki and move it somewhere else.
But the tohuouwiki probably generates a lot of pagehits for wikia so the wikia admins stopped them from doing that and replaced the admins.
The former touhouwiki admins went with their plan anyway, resulting in en.touhouwiki.net, but now the wikia touhouwiki is still there and most people who don't really know about all this still use it.
Damn, I guess it's just like they said before, those guys don't respect your freedom.
It's a game that's difficult to get to play and not worth the effort. It's way more boring than the 2hu games, but it's got cute girls doing cute things. Recommend getting high before playing it or it won't be fun at all.
Wow, I just went to /jp/'s kancolle thread.
It's full of grouchy aggressive people.
Yeah, just like an english client will troll the shit out of futaba. It'll really prove the /jp/ thread is terrible if you go over there and blatantly shitpost.
It's literally no different from the /a/ thread aside from the fact that people there know more about the game and there's less fanart. It's amazing that people from /a/ of all places are crying about an aversion to spoonfeeding.
It's scary, even if you ask politely those resident there will tell you to fuck off or read the wiki.
The only difference between that and what's happening in the /jp/ threads now, is that we're going to post their replies here.
Also, hardly anyone ever replies game-related questions on the /a/ threads with "read the wiki" or anything similar. Those who do are more likely than not crossboarders from /jp/.
The only time that /jp/ cannot use "read the wiki" is when they discuss exploits (cause there's no wiki for it)
You're forgetting that Wikia makes money from ad revenue. Losing a wikia with a decent amount of monthly pageviews means losing money.
in that case, the correct response would be "join the CommieSubs IRC"
It's different sometimes. /jp/ do get into discussion on without resorting to 'read the wiki'. Even people who were whinning about drops and sortie woes are sometimes offered advice. Equipment setups are also answered as well as long as they are not idiotically simple like 'why is my plane numbers different on slots?'.
Exactly as you say. I asked for tips on developing my carriers, got more detailed answers than I expected. Even better, no one asked me to leave/read the wiki/fuck off. /jp/ is really nice most of the time if you're not asking completely retarded questions.
/a/ is an asshole who can't answer with anything else BUT with "read the wiki".
That's why one can't even discuss anything in those threads, just shitpost anymore.
I'd say you probably lucked out with regards to question asking since we have more sensible
Strange, that wasn't how I remembered it. Maybe I remembered wrongly. If that's the case, it was probably to get rid of game-related discussion, which doesn't really belong on /a/ in the first place.
Still all the threads are only about game discussion when an even first starts. They still go around with that bullshit except if they're talking about personal experience.
/a/ is the worst place for discussion KanColle.

Strange, that wasn't how I remembered it. Maybe I remembered wrongly. If that's the case, it was probably more to get rid of game-related discussion, which doesn't really belong on /a/ in the first place, than for being a bunch of elitist fags. That, or there wasn't much game-related discussion to begin with.
No wonder. So that's what happened.
If I were to hazard a guess, two possibilities.
1. Those /jp/ elitists were actually from /a/ to begin with, where they spammed "read the wiki" replies to game-related questions. As the number of game-related questions in /a/ declined, they moved their replies to /jp/. They didn't seem like typical /jp/ers, after all, since they're the only /jp/ board that's this rigid.
2. They really are from /jp/, and they crossboarded to /a/ where they assumed that every game-related question can be answered by the wiki and answered as such.
Either way, it's the work of crossboarders, I say.
Rather than "read the wiki" I'd say yuri wars is more common in /a/ though the worst flame war I've seen is probably when someone mentioned Dresden in the threads.

Game discussion is still held in /a/ kancolle thread and questions are still answered accordingly. It's essentially /jp/ lite with higher image count so that posters could express their desires to make love to kancolle while posting relevant image; it's like a supplementary thread to the one in /jp/
Not much "read the wiki" replies in the last few Kancolle threads. Or questions that warrant such replies in the first place. Overshadowed by shipping wars and stuff.
Oh yeah, before I forget, they always link to imgur when they hit the image limit. They also encourage deletion of images to save image space. I cannot believe that such a practice exists on an imageboard.
>I cannot believe that such a practice exists on an imageboard.
/jp/ doesn't really require that much images in the first place so they don't get their image limit increased. Considering how this game could encourage people to whine and blog, they could hit the image limit very easily just by screencaps and what not. Adding on the fact that /jp/ is slow moving as fuck mean a thread could stay for days increasing the posts per image ratio. Granted, /jp/ could have started another thread but I think there's a stigma of having multiple Kancolle thread as there were arguments way back on whether Kancolle should stay on /jp/.
/jp/'s too slow to spam the board with new threads every time one hits bump limit but a single thread can hit about 1500 posts in a day. There's seriously no room for images, especially when people need them for more than just showing off their latest craft. Not that I want it to move, because this is completely a non issue aside from idiots who are shocked that different boards work differently, but if the thread were on /vg/ none of that would happen. That 500 image limit would be a godsend.
>>all the /jp/ crossboarders here
More like all the /a/ crossboarders here. The recent census proved that half the /jp/ general is just /a/nons who don't visit that board for anything else.
>the recent census
But you are the crossie.
Welcome to last week.
>Philippines has the highest count
What the fuck!?
>Touhou must have some sort of mainstream appeal when even League or LeLgends, the most casual mainstream game ever, references it.
WoW has a Touhou reference too, by the way.
lel, sounds accurate
>killed by fire
I want to massacre those people.
>nerds doing nerds references
It's so mainstream!
I, I don't get it.
It was posted when the American kids were at school and the Asian faggots were still awake.
>not knowing Nazrin, the tiny, tiny general
What's enigma doing in this game?
>the Asian faggots were still awake.
It was midnight when the census was taken.
Oh fuck. That's the mouse 2hu or something right? I stopped following Touhou after SA. Apologies.
No prob. I stopped following it after Ten Desires.
I just don't have the fire in me I used to have back 6-7 years ago anymore.
Nazrin is the first level boss in Touhou 12, and her theme is named "A Tiny, Tiny Clever Commander".
