I guess you don't play using the API link then?  Even though DMM's servers are completely hammered, the game itself runs fine if you get a direct link.

Anyway, what a twist for the event.  Sure we knew that ships used in AL couldn't be used in MI (and vice versa), but then there's the whole sortie'ing two fleets simultaneously for MI thing.  And then we find out that for the final map you can't use any ships used in AL or MI.  They're really going all out...
nope, I don't play using api. Also yeah that last map sounds like it is going to be an absolute nightmare.

whelp! DMM site servers are dying . Have not been able to login all morning. Not that I was gonna do the event maps today(let the brave souls  scout it out 1st ) , but I wanted to spam expeditions and 3-2-A.

The issue is the very nature of the compositions.Touhou themes are piano synth based and have very poplike catchiness,with a strong memorable hook, that alone makes them a lot easier to arrange and remix into crazy stuff. I think its like comparing a marathon runner to a sprinter  KanColle due to riding its surging popularity will pull ahead, but I just don't think the KanColle music scene will be very sustainable. The Art scene however, has a chance to leave Touhou in the dust as seemingly more and more popular Pixiv artists are making KanColle artwork now, and all but stopped doing Touhou. Which in way is expected since Touhou has been going on for over 10 years now. There are only so many Reimu, Marisa, SDM/SA cast pics an artist  can do before they just get bored of it. There was just nothing popular enough to make these artist truly migrate before KanColle.

What i mean by ftp with no traps is the game does not force you to buy something to be competitive or otherwise not be gimp. Sure having only 2 docks and 100 ship suck but they are a not a necessity to progress in the game.  Also I don't mean Kancolle music is bad,  far from it. Kancolle just does  not have the type of music that can be rearranged into almost any style imaginable like Touhou. I mean Touhou themes  can and has been remixed into practically anything Touhou country  and work well.

carrying on in the trail of shame it also has a sub series that has three games. that is A whole lot of gender bender

OK, so I've talked about Kantai Collection (aka KanColle) in other threads, but now that it's officially the biggest thing in Japan I think it's about time to give this game about anthropomorphized WW2-era navel vessels its own thread.

How has this low budget free to play browser game that's mostly about time management and grinding attract such a rabid fanbase?  Even as a KanColle addict myself I have a hard time explaining it.  It's this bizarre combination of cute yet distinctive characters, military hardware (there's definitely something about this game that takes me back to when I was a kid and I used to poor over Jane's guides...), historical trivia, and gameplay that's basically a solo affair yet is constantly evolving and very much encourages discussion (if you're not participating in the wikis and stuff I feel like you're not getting the full experience).
1. The ship girls
2. The fact that it is truly a free to play no traps attached game
3. Anyone can play it as long as you has patience as rng decides everything .
4. Its really addictive! cant't  think of a major reason why, but it will consume all/most of your gaming time very quickly
5. Collecting shipgirls. its got that pokemon thing going
6. ^ All the above caused a megaton explosion of pixiv . Just checking danbooru Kancolle art work has gained over 40k images in 1 year, and that is just what people on danbooru decided to upload.
All the above plus other things I probably missing created a massively popular meme producing juggernaut.

looking at those numbers if it wasn't for Kancolle's music being its weakness it would have blew the doors off Touhou as there is not much music to arrange in Kancolle, and most of that is in game isn't exactly arrange friendly. O_o never thought I'd ever see anything  beat  Touhou and do it with practically no strong music .

Still recovering a bit from the news devs released about the big August event based operation AI/midway.
Overall panicking and leveling my CVL like mad since I am probably going to have to depend on them for event, or at least AI. The locking of ships to either AI or Midway really hurt since I only have 3 CVs, with no luck crafting, or with drops in getting more. Luckily  I have 4 CVLs in the 40s and plan to to level 2 of them, the Chitose sisters up to their final remodel.My HQ  is lv 56 and will most likely be 60 before I am through power leveling  the CVL and possibly a CL. Hoping my relatively noob HQ will save me. Still have to pray to Rngsus and craft  2-3 more reppu for the event as I have 5 at the moment.

Why? That would be f***ing depressing, unless it's supposed to be a horror game...
Maybe cause I am older and tired of the narrative predominately involving  15-17 year olds. I think older characters like ones from Persona 2: Eternal Punishment,  Digital Devil Saga or Catherine would be fresh change of pace.

quite a few Persona games comin out, I am excited for 5 and Dancing all Night but on the fence about Persona Q. Hopefully we'll see some more stuff about 5 later this year. It would be really cool to have a later full Persona game have a crossover of the casts of 3 and 4 like they were doing with the Persona 4 Arena story.
The cash cow casts (especially 4) have gotten fat enough, and needs to be slaughtered. The  Persona 3 &4 casts have seriously been milked to death. What I'd like to see is Persona 5 abandon the whole high school setting and move on to A college, or post college setting.

I'm at vol. 9 of Yowamushi Pedal on batoto.  Loving the series and badly want legit English releases of both the manga and anime.  Sports anime and manga are curious, aren't they?  Normally, I'm not into them at all, but I'm into this one because it's about a sport I enjoy and I relate to the main character big time. 
If you like bike sports anime, might want to give Overdrive a try. It is one of my favorite sports anime.

I can't tell if this is a joke or if it's actually serious, but I find the fact that it even exists at all to be completely hilarious.  It's a fan-made audiobook version of the Mahouka novels.

The guy's voice is so soothing...

oo nice. Mahouka was easily my favorite series of last season, so i'll check that out.

"Dragon Quest: Legend Of The Hero Abel"1-4
It was definitely worth the effort to track down the show. It really does a great job of feeling like DragonQuest.

After Sailor Moon left me with a luke warm meh, I tracked down  Dragon Quest: Legend Of The Hero Abel. I was craving some nostalgia, and DQ will do just fine. Pretty much the 1st anime I  can remember watching back before I knew what anime was as A kid. Will watch what I found with glee later.

New Sailor Moon... you replace one the most iconic anime theme songs of all time with this generic new shit... god damn It!. Do not like the new soundtrack at all.

Think it is safe to say Kancolle anime been delayed. It is not even on the anime summer tv schedule.

Shyamalan twist: it's not an anime, it's live action.
That would be so hilariously bad. it would my most an anticipated show of 2014, just to see that train wreck in action.
