-Kantai Collection, Ep12
Because everybody needs more Mutsu in their lives.
To be fair, however: if Mutsu hadn't've been there to keep my morale up during the Kancolle writeups...
...Kirishima would have done quite nicely. Just sayin'.

The whole "Ships as girls" mecha-musume concept just didn't work for me for this show. It was handled slightly better for Arpeggio of Blue Steel, however, IMHO.
They never gave us any hints about what the Fog were, where they came from, or why they were doing what they were doing, so that wasn't any good. But the ships with Mental Models worked for me, especially since they were quite varied, and kept changing the more contact they had with humans.
And I liked their version of Kirishima (a teddy bear) better. This Kirishima is just another big-busted lady pretty much indistinguishable from all the others.

I've seen anything from detailed technical explanations of what the ships used to be and how they fought, to Northern Princess used as a kind of mittened Yotsuba, to character studies dealing with alcoholism, to cries de couer from game-players who've had things go wrong one (hundred) too many times. Abyssals show up to attack the base, to infiltrate and impersonate people, or just to hit the ice cream shop. The German ships show up and hilarity ensues. The marriage system is, of course, a popular topic. So is Akagi's appetite...
And of course there's a billion tons of porn, par for the course.
I've even seen a few that tried to explain, why Kancolle? Putting together an explanation that explains abyssals, ship girls, fairies, the compass, and all that ain't easy.
