I've been posting quite a lot of negative stuff lately so I wanted to share some more positivity going along with the whole 'drone' topic even if you guys may or may not follow along. Wanted to post this even if people may or may not be familiar with this because more positivity is needed in this world. I'm not expecting people to be familiar, just wanting to share positivity.
Azur Lane, what is it?
Similar to Japan's 'Kantai Collection' (KanColle), it follows a similar concept of viewing your ships as actual females in human form. Humans view vehicles as females, thus shipgirls in this genre. Azur Lane is a game (and anime) of ships in human female forms fighting against data aliens named 'Sirens' who are hellbent on experimenting in morbid ways on the ships themselves and humanity. Its up to these shipgirls to save earth by forming an alliance called 'Azur Lane' (Think UN). Its not all sunshine and rainbow as there is a nasty fracture even among the 'Azur Lane' spawning the 'Crimson Axis'.
A mobile game.
During my toughest and moodiest times I can always rely on Azur Lane to cheer me up, more so as we all wait for Rising World unity to mature to a proper playable state. Its always been good to me (mostly) while showing it can respect history. I used to play KanColle having learned about WW2 though that became too time consuming and grindy that I had to ditch it. Everything became so difficult it no longer became fun, but I still respect KanColle for its BGM and character designs. Its on the serious side. Azur Lane is more accessible giving me more amusements. Its because of both games I want to see a WW2 game with Canadians in them with HMCS Haida, HMCS Uganda, HMCS Ontario, & etc.... Just one proper good naval game similar to 'Silent Hunter 3'. I loved that game. Azur Lane hinted/teased we may obtain Canadians as 'Maple Monarchy' so I'm hoping to see them in time. I just hope I won't turn into a skeleton while waiting, similar to how long we all are waiting for Rising World. No ill wills, just.... Art takes time, I however want to see a good game on various fronts with developers being honest without doing the whole 'cookie cutter' samey game stuff. I love Azur Lane, Silent Hunter 3, and Rising World for being fresh.
Until then (Canadians being added), I amusingly enough ringed Bismarck & Tirpitz in Azur Lane because even outside the realm of anime I found myself admiring the beauty of both Tirpitz and Bismarck. They're beautiful vessels.
I love this game. Even when times are negative it always bumps me the right back up. When we get boats in Rising World I 'hope' (though not expecting) we can see some military class vessel I could hopefully play around with in that game. Anything. Azur Lane does its research on history so you tend to learn, thus why I love it. It knows how to be both serious and comical. Its animes are good, even if people say otherwise. Azur Lane: Crosswave (on steam) is a neat game, though not something meant for westerners because of different play styles. Its a nice start and I enjoy it.
Youtube spam because I love this game so much. Hope I can carry it over into Rising World when we get boats and such added. Modding. Whatever.
