    But wait, there's more! Sure, Setsubun is important, but new remodels are also important! Which is why the KanColle development team is currently preparing the second remodel of one of our best standard aircraft carriers as well as a certain aviation battleship who fought hard as the 4th Carrier Division. But wait, there's even more! (TBC)

    そして!節分も大事ですが、新たなる改装も大事!現在「艦これ」運営鎮守府では、今春の実装を目指して我が精鋭の正規空母、そして第四航空戦隊として奮戦したあの航空戦艦の【改二】改装の準備を進めています。また!(続きます)

    Furthermore, we're also working on the second remodel of a certain destroyer of the core of the main force that were the Type-A destroyers, and, since it's been a while, the second remodel of a certain battleship that is going to pack quite a punch. When our preparations are complete, we won't wait until actual spring, but try to implement each of them between now i.e. winter and early spring. Now there's something to look forward to!

    また、それとは別に…ある「主力オブ主力な甲型駆逐艦」の【改二】改装、そして久しぶりの大型火力艦の【改二】改装となる、ある「戦艦」の改装準備も進めています。これらは準備が整えば、春本番を待たず冬から早春のうちにそれぞれ実装すべく現在準備を進めています。少しだけ…お楽しみに!

    The KanColle development team is preparing the second remodel of a certain member of the Type-A Destroyers that were on a whole different level even among the main forces, and are planning to implement during the first half of this month. Furthermore, we're also working on the second remodel of the 2nd ship of a certain main battleship force that was part of the Big Seven, and are planning to implement it during the second half of this month! This may not be much, admirals, but we hope look forward to them anyway!

    現在「艦これ」運営鎮守府では、今月前半に投入すべく、ある「主力オブ主力な甲型駆逐艦」の【改二】改装の準備を進めています。さらに二月後半には、ビッグセブンの一角、ある「主力戦艦の二番艦」の【改二】改装開発及び同投入準備も進めています!提督の皆さん、少しだけ…お楽しみに!

    The next KanColle server maintenance & update is planned for this Friday i.e. the 8th February. The update during this maintenance is going to include the second remodel of one of the fleet-type destroyers who were on a different level even among the main force. She witnessed the death of a mighty dragon at Midway, and kept fighting even after that. Look forward to it!

    次回の「艦これ」稼働全サーバ群メンテナンス&アップデートは、今週金曜日【2/8(金)】を予定しています。同メンテに伴うアップデートでは主力オブ主力な艦隊型駆逐艦の一隻、ミッドウェーで偉大な龍の最期を看取り、その後も奮戦を続けた彼女…その【改二】改装を実装予定です。お楽しみに!

    The KanColle development team is working diligently on the second remodel of the 2nd ship of the Nagato-class battleships that were part of the Big Seven. We're planning to release it near the end of this month. Ayane Sakura, who's been voicing her, has already finished recording all new voice liens! We hope that all the Nagato-class admirals out there are looking forward to this update!

    現在「艦これ」運営鎮守府は、今月下旬実装予定のビッグセブンの一翼、長門型戦艦二番艦、その【改二改装】の実装準備を鋭意進めています。彼女の声を務める佐倉さんの最新ボイス収録も完了!長門型提督の皆さん、今月下旬予定の同実装アップデートを、少しだけ…そして全力で…お楽しみに!

      I doubt so, since Nagato Touch is already rather strong with Nagato / Mutsu combo. If it's really Mutsu Kai Ni though, then Nagato Touch might be a staple in future event.

      Well if you use both on an event map you will get the benefit only of the flagship proc, so you cant have both top bonus on 2 event map due to lock, you must chose if split them for a lesser (still great) bonus

      Mutsu would be interesting to see a Kai Ni form.  If you use Nagato K2 and Mutsu for Nagato touch, then there is the additional damage bonus from Mutsu which can add up quite nicely.  It would interesting how much more added damage bonus with Mutsu K2.

    • Musashi was so high on resource cost for her Kai Ni that they have given a lot of medal/Bp/Action report during a large scale event. If they ever give us a Yamato Kai Ni will be during an event with the same reward, or only a very few can afford to have her at the update

    • When we debate about Yamato or Mutsu, the winner is actually Warspite LOL. Mutsu would be nice, i like her although i prefer long hair :3. I think Akagi will stay as a normal CV but with some "Touch" apply to CV only since she is FS of admiral Nagumo. Catapult would mean extremely large scale of remodel like from CV to CVB or BB to hybrid. I dont think the dev would give us a reversible BB-CV (lol) or another CVB (that would just mean they are out of idea). However angled flight deck is a possibility, which maybe allow her to double attack (well, faster launching time). Hyuuga would most likely follow her sister. My Kazagumo is only level 1 since i only bought more slot recently. Her predessor said goodbye after contributing Skilled Lookout :3.

      Same. I'm a little afraid of this K2, since I like (and use) Mutsu a lot. If they do with her the same thing they did with Nagato, that would mean a lot less use in action. As I use to say, Mutsu can do 90% of what Nagato can do at the 60% of the cost.

      Excuse me sir, that was the old Shibafu. Stop drawing hasty conclusions, right now Shibafu has undoubtly increased the quality of this arts and started to add different pose for many of his damaged CGs.

      Regarding new recent ships by Shibafu, only Daitou and Hiburi haven't different pose for their damaged arts. Shinyou, Intrepid, I-400 and Kasuga Maru have different damaged pose.

      Not like many of this ships has second remodel by th way, but ALL his recent kainis has different damaged pose: Ise K2, Shinyou K2, and Taiyou K2. Only very old kainis haven't different damaged pose: Hiryuu K2, Souryuu K2, Fubuki K2, and Ayanami K2.

      Approximately half of his recent seasonal GCs have different damaged pose: Uranami Setsubun, Fubuki Happi, Mogami Rainy, Houshou New Year, I-401 New Year. The old Shibafu never did a single different damaged pose for seasonal CGs (we can't count Leyte CGs other tha Mogami's because absolutely nothing change in most of Leyte GCs for all ships except the white headband)

      So please, instead of directly throwing shit on Shibafu insulting his artistic skills (which, by the way, you have no right to do so) try to give him a vote of confidence.

      Yes, Shibafu still makes controversial faces. However, the amount of effort to differentiate the Damaged CG should never be underestimated. Look at Konishi's early works, particularly pre-K2 ships (Asashio, Arashio, Suzuya, Yuubari, Haruna, Kirishima, etc). I'm saying that every artist have honed their skills, but with different improvement rate. Some artists (UGUME & drew) improved massively, while some others tend to improve steadily.

    • So, hating Shibafu is still a cool thing now, eh? Let's be honest, the Intrepidgate blew up because people are expecting Yoshinori to draw her rather than the worst KC artist there is(tm). Maybe learn to tone down that expectation next time.

      Granted, Shibafu's arts can be underwhelming at times (Escort Hime, I'm looking at you. Both of you), and many already gets it. The critique of his work is valid, but hearing it being dragged on for this long to the point as if some people has a vendetta against him is honestly tiresome. I won't be surprised if one day some bored soul will just snap and request in less than polite way to whomever hate Shibafu to actually do something to excuse themselves from seeing the horrific potato arts for good by summarily evicting every and all potatoboats from their account.

      I second to that.  I just love playing this game despite some salt and sanity loss.

      Well, there is this thing called opinions. And also the complains are justiied. Yes sure, he did improve his arts abit. But he arts still look lazy and copy paste. Just look at three arts of Taiyou and Shinyou from normal to Kai Ni, same pose just minor differents. He didn't even try!

      I was thinking the same thing about Aquila instead of Akagi/Kaga based on Ranking rewards as future K2 hint.

      D-d-don't worry, they are strong enough from the start, that the others need second remodels to catch up instead!

      All three Yuugumo ships for K2 around lvl 75.  I wouldn't be surprised devs will put out new quest for the new K2.  I've noticed last few quests of Yuugumo class K2s, its either 5-4 or 5-5

      personally I can't imagine that is the case. while there's a limit to historical battles they can pick from, they've already shown they're not opposed to doing what-if scenarios. which means just plain made-up battles is a possibility too

      considering it's still popular too, I'm guessing kancolle will go on for a long time still. now, whether there will ever be an event as amazing a ten-go will likely be, that I don't know

      I don't recall which interview it was, but when the HTML5 update hit, the game recently finished its 5th anniversary and Tanaka mentioned he had ideas/content for at least another 5-7 years. 

      In addition to the Devs showing they are clearly okay with making up scenarios (our two summer trips to Europe), they are okay with revisiting past scenarios but with a more focused look (the recent Winter event looked at a general battle that was already visited in a past event, but this was more focused on a couple of specific areas of that battle as a focus). This makes for a wide variety of things that can be done with/for more events and content moving forward.

      I honestly hope that's her in-game CG; she has a very similar style as her sister, but her own distict look that is all her own. I'm liking this.

    • That Mutsu K2 looks great. I'm glad they kept her socks. I'm a fan of the capes and coats artwork and that mini cape she's rocking fits her very nicely. I'm curious whether she will get her own special attack or whether they will add a huge synergy bonus to Mutsu K2 participating in Nagato's special attack.

    • I think that technical term for this kind of overcoat is Iverness cape.

      Don't ask how I know that.

      The important point is that it's sleeveless. Yoshinori did great job and kept all her charm points: still sleeveless, still showing a bit of her stomach, still keeping her legwear. If her damaged art also keeps up to this level we are up for some epicness.

      Since Mutsu is my favourite slow BB I have great hopes for this K2.

    • I was hoping that Mutsu didn't recieve the Nagato jacket (I like it on Nagato)...but now when I see this...I like it.

      Good thing she retains her gloves and doesnt change them for Nagato's really long ones,also I like the different color scheme.

      For example?  Most of the ships do drop from time to time, just not every single event, while others, like Saratoga, are available through LSC.

      Most of the ships do drop from time to time, just not every single event, while others, like Saratoga, are available through LSC. 

      To my knowledge, the only ships that are exceptionally rare are Iowa and Hatsuzuki; both have had very few even-drops after their release (Iowa one, Hatsuzuki two). 

      Even the notoriously rare Prinz Eugen shows up as a drop every 2-3 events...meaning she's rare because she tends to have a low drop-rate, not because she doesn't show up as a drop.

      Seriously, if you want some of these rarer ships, then you need to prepare for events (I suspect the next one will be in April/May timeframe), make a note of what ships are available and where they drop. This information becomes available within a day or three after an event starts (thanks Frontliners!).

      On the "Info" tab, there is a collapsable menu that shows all "Event-Only" ships, and does a reasonably good job of showing who is available in the event. 

      On each individual map tab, there is a drop-list that shows all "rare" ships (whether they are event-only, LSC or just hard to get as a general thing) that can be found on that particular map, what node they drop on and the drop-rate (how likely you are to get that ship).

      What this means for you, is that you need to prep your resources in buckets well in advance of an event and wait a few days before starting so you can see who drops where and plan to farm accordingly.

      Last time Katsuragi dropped was Winter 2018; because of the event-schedule got screwed up the way it was, there were only 2 events that year (Winter and late-summer/fall).

      I honestly wouldn't expect to see her next event (Spring), but she may show up in Summer. If she doesn't show up there, then It's a good bet that she'll be a drop in Fall.

    • if the US getting the "Project Affirm" Night Fighting planes Can we get the Japanese Night fighting planes called "Aichi S1A Denko" Along with the Toku Air Group or the 934th Air Fleet?

    • Tanaka hinted at night-fighter Gekko, so Denko isn't out of question too, but... Either one was a heavy, large plane unsuitable for carrier operation. And I see rather limited use for land-based night fighters.
