    @Kalinsre Is your account infected or something?

    I don't think your picture is related to this topic. I don't get it.

    @dandan550 It was made a long time ago actually(2 years ago?). Though a fleet anime with "high school" in it didn't come about until now.

    Oh I see. But this anime turns out to be "Girls und Kriegsschiff", and it looks more like "the Kanmusus become ship fairies" too. (Error-Musume be the skipper).

    So what do you guys guess what will happen next in Episode 3?

    1. It's a trap set by the conspirators who framed Harekaze go mutiny. They are using Musashi as a bait to sink Harekaze or put her and her crews into custody.

    2. Musashi is really under attack by the conspirators or other unknown forces just like the Admiral Graf Spee. The crews of Musashi are too inexperienced to operate this behemoth and panicking.

    3. Other opinions (please state)

    And I hope to see more foreign ships! If it featured Admiral Graf Spee, I'm looking forward to see American or British warships!

    @Moeflyer: FYI - discussed this in the Spring Anime thread. Personally, I'm not impressed with the show at this point. It's OK, but has multiple issues. To me this is straight up Girls und Kriegsschiffs - GuP with ships instead of tanks (BTW, I've read Japanese Destroyer Captain and IMO this ain't it). It's a bit more serious than GuP with the whole mutiny plot line, but a LOT of the presentation is the same as GuP down to comedy style including "pop-up screens" like we saw in Ep. 01. BTW, I'm a big GuP fan and also like Strike Witches (i.e. shows with WWII + girls hook).

    So somewhat more serious, but it's not THAT serious. There was just about as much excitement about curry for dinner as there was when they ran into Graf Spee. There's a lot of "comedy" (which isn't working for me here, but comedy's subjective) interjected with battles at times (e.g. nicknames being discussed while they are being shelled in Ep. 01, or one girl covering the helmgirl's eyes in Ep. 02). on top of other "comedy" moments (e.g. that one girl's fantasies). Heck. the small boat in which the girl is fleeing the Graf Spree is barely missed by a shell, blowing it out of the water and she's just knocked out - not a scratch on her otherwise. That being said, it is more serious (or tries to be) than GuP which IMO leads to issues with "comedy" & "serious" integration.

    Again, only Ep. 02 so plenty of time for improvement. Issues aside, WWII "hook" and the mutiny plot is interesting enough to keep me around. As for next Ep. 3 with Musashi - could go either way: (A) Actually in dire straights/emergency for some reason, or (B) it's a ruse to capture the Harekaze. If I had to bet, I'd say it's the former, but not sure why Musashi would be in trouble.

    I honestly can say that this show deserved it's own thread, since you know guys where in Himeuta and all of that... but yeah, I do enjoy the show but I also feel that it's trying really hard to become GuP 2 or something even better and so far... it's not doing a good job, at least the twists are really good but I'm expecting really stupid deus ex machinas in the future because these kind of animes are filled with them.

    But I'm really sure that we will see nice surprises, character development and such and it will make the show even better in later episodes hopefuly so we just need to wait and see.

    I hate how intentionally ambiguous they were with the ending scene, as below
    [+] Spoiler
    Maybe I'm just reading too much into it but I couldn't quite pinpoint my guess as to if its a set-up or not. Her reddened face, the sweat, the somewhat stressed breathing yet somewhat calm demenor, the slight shake of her hand (is she nervous? is she really distressed?). Okay maybe I am, but I like Moeka and the Musashi too much that I want it to be an actual distress call and not conspirator plot tools

    @p0nche to me it is either she is asking for help or it is a trap.

    There is so much conspiracy-theory right at the beginning... I wish we know more about the overall of the setting in that show.

    Anyway I've seen their official site and saw the overall of the Crew of the Harekaze:
    Each of them had a role, so I guess they'll all had their screentime from time to time. (Earning more love from fans)

    I'll need some help in TL of course for identification of the girl's roles

    The Bridge, of course those who had played/watched too many naval-related games would know this.
    [+] Spoiler




    This girls are probably tasked in handling the ship's weaponry.
    [+] Spoiler




    Despite of the name in the site, "Institution" to me I think they're the maintenance crew... As seen that in most scenes they're mostly in the Engine Room. The last 3 are seen checking the damage of the ship's aft(?) so I guess their job also serves as the Damage Control Crew.
    [+] Spoiler




    The site says their task is navigation related. The megane (who is probably far-sighted) serves as the ships Lookout.
    [+] Spoiler




    This girls are always present inside of the ship and "important". 3 of them are the ship's Mess Crew, the other is the doctor and the one... Probably serves to inspect the ships storage?
    [+] Spoiler




    Mascot not included :^)
