This thread is for the discussion of Kancolle Anime Episode 6; "Sixth Destroyer Division & the Battle of Curry Seas"
Episode will be airing tomorrow (Feb 12th) at (i think) 1:00 AM JST.
You can vent whatever you want to your heart contents here but play nice with each other.
It's finally time for people's favorite destroyer division, the 6th Division! Featuring Hibiki, the Russian phoenix; Akatsuki, the lady-like exiled ninja; Ikazuchi, the thunderous loli-mom; and Inazuma, the Miyuki showstopper.
Join them as they battle through the delicious Curry sea; eating hot & spicy flavor of the south to the mild flavor of the north...wait...not that curry sea? Oh, they mean this Curry Sea.
Add After Watching (Minor Rant since we're either 25(?) or 50%(?) through the series):
HOLY SHIP! I didn't actually expect a real Battle of "CURRY". Wait, what the hell am I watching again? Is this Kantai no Soma? What happened to the depressing event a few episodes ago? Is this episode showing the creation of the ultimate bioweapon that will one-shot any abyssal ship? What is actually the point of this episode? Why am I feeling this will be another Strike Wtich series with 6-8 episodes of no progress? When will I get my Ooikami lesbo-suggestive episode!?
Next you're going to tell me the there's an episode about Naka's concert and her rise to become a fleet idol. Hell why not, they should also add in a kantai school festival and let them eat cake and drink tea. Don't forget an episode about Shimakaze's dream to become the blue hedgehog of the sea.
This episode gets 11/10 because in the end...6th division is still cute as ship.
this episode is the most funny and cute until now, we could see the the toxic curry of Hiei, some good fanservice for shoukaku, and the hardcore yuri from Ooi... i feel a little bad for ashigara, we could catch a glimpse of Nagamon in this episode too.
well for me this one was the best episode i have ever see it was soo cute to see the 6 Desdiv in action, and more important to see Inazuma and her Nanodesu, now i can die happy
My long awaited Hiei's curry, she could had won if I was the judge
This is by far the most relaxing and enjoyable episode for me, I'm not a fanservice person so I didn't enjoy this as much as I should had. If this show has more gags, less battle and less fanservice, then this will be show that I liked this season alongside with Kiseijuu and DRRR X2.
A better filler episode than Ep. 2. It's like MasterChef but without the time limit. And the pre-determined ingredient here is curry.
First, Kongou was over-obsessed with cooking her curry until she starts thinking about the Admiral until Hiei adds in her vegetables and spices to turn the curry purple, knocking themselves out when they try it out, thus making them the first to get DQ'd.
So now we knew how Hiei Curry was made.
Akagi and Kaga make their curry but Akagi eats all the ingredients up herself, effectively getting themselves DQ'd as well. Shimakaze makes her curry and eats them up in a wink, and she, like the previous competitors I've mentioned before, is also DQ'd. Shoukaku and Zuikaku make their curry but leaves a stain on Shoukaku's skirt, much to her (Shoukaku's) embarassment, DQ-ing them in the process.
The competition gets all gloomy (even Naka-chan lampshades this) as we're down to DesDiv6 vs. Ashigara and Haguro. The DesDiv6 try out Ashigara's curry but was too spicy that they can't even stand up, almost feeling the wrath of the Hungry Wolf, but not until the former Third Torpedo Squadron cheers on them, making the DesDiv6 stand up once more, but not before the Hungry Wolf goes "Berserk Mode Hatsudou", all while Haguro is crying in the background.
And now it's Nagato and Mutsu's Judgment Time, I predicted that DesDiv6 wins the contest. Nagato tastes Ashigara's curry and starts sweating because of the spice, and then when she tastes DesDiv6's curry, she said it's delicious. And it was decided, DesDiv6 wins because Nagato can't stand spicy foods.
So to summarize, in MasterChef terms, Ashigara and Haguro get a "No", while DesDiv6 gets a "Yes".
Episode 6: The OVA Episode
Fubuki gets demoted to side character, Nagato becomes Gendo and Naka takes the role of 'straight man'. I feel like this was probably the slice of life anime many people wanted. Also a good break from getting my ass kicked in the event.
kinda make a lil research so the title about curry sea is about indian ocean campaign (yess its big troll) happen on 31 march - 10 april 1942 and akatsuki go to bauxite(iron) bottom sound 25 october 1942 (3 weeks later she sunk) and on the ending its zuikaku voice so next epsiode will enter on naval battle of gualdacanal (battle of santa cruz) dangg i took to much serious on history part

if this happen, i can predict the plot,
yukikaze join fleet, introduced as the last survival from her previous fleet, soon, all fleets including MC sunk during battle of gauldacanal, yukikaze return to nagato, and get nickname grim reaper, or else getting an unlikely plot twist (yukikaze betral her fleet to doom)
Oh man, I loved the gold-bauxite pot on Hibiki's head. SO GOOD. I also need more Yuubari in that outfit she had when she was hammerin' away. I also loved Shimakaze's parts too, especially that head-bobbing part. What if this whole episode ended with Shimakaze winning the curry contest? :P
It was really fun, seeing hilarious things like the earlier mentioned "Hiei's Curry" or seeing Akagi eating the ingredients, and I liked it not for that reason only, is because it centered in the Akatsuki sisters and not in the main protagonist Fubuki, however it barely appeared in the episode... And other thing this chapter taught me is that the girls you send to expedition can experiment problems bringing the resources back, especially if those are a quantity, so thing about it next time you send your girls on an expedition...
Ah this episode ties Ep 5 as my favorite. The humor is funny but not over-the-top, game gags and fan character memes are more clear such as Glutton Akagi, the infamous Hiei curry and Hungry Wolf, and the 6th DesDiv just make a better main character than Fubuki in general since they synergize really well. I especially love what they did with Hibiki this episode compared to her previous cameos, the straight man amongst her sisters with a subtle hint of random, like the pot on her head.
A little disappointed there wasn't any action, but hey, not every episode needs an action scene. Fanservice wasn't overdone, jokes were funny, all the characters felt distinct and alive, I loved it. It seems next episode will focus on 5thCarDiv? I was expecting a day in the life of Nagato for the 7th episode, since we kind of had 5th vs 1stCarDiv in ep 5, but oh well.
^ There's a mystery that begs resolution from ep. 5. Normally, Kaga's arrogance has been blamed for the bad blood between CarDivs 1 and 5, and Zuikaku's the one who always took offense. Yet in ep. 5 supposedly nice and gentle SHOUKAKU actually went full-on bitch-mode and added fuel to the fire by calling Kaga an escort ship, then just left Fubuki with the problem. So seems like it's not as simple as the traditional fan view.
Also, the anime staff seems to have coordinated well with the game staff. if ep. 2 had been shown right now, I can't imagine the level of anger and frustration that'd emerge from the TTK community. As it is, ep. 5 fired us up and Ep. 6 cooled things down a bit.

My admiration and pity to that ship scattered into molecular level pieces by that time (it was broken first when I put her as secretary and she appears to be "siscon" elder sister, the second though not so deep since it was by a certain doujin I have even yet read)
