Back when the first trailer for this dropped, many had hoped for a singular, reasonable wish for this series adaptation to fulfill.
Don’t be like Kancolle’s anime.
Unfortunately, it seems as though that the same mistakes that plagued Kantai Collection repeated themselves with Azur Lane. Was this really a surprise to anyone though?

Remember when I covered Fate/Extra Last Encore and then it decided to wait 4 months to show off it’s last episode. Well it’s happening here as the last 2 episodes will be delayed until March. A bit of both disheartening news for some understandable reasons that I can only hope pays off for them well.
So let’s see what we’re left with.

So here I thought we’d get a small break from the fighting but nope, we’re right back in the action as Akagi decides to let some of the other carriers have some fun against a small scouting party with some German girls thrown into the mix.
The animation was ever so slightly more strained during the high-speed action sequences so let’s hope they still have some budget left over for the inevitable big fight waiting for us at the end. I did enjoy this week’s background girls a lot more than last time, Helena was cute and the anime knew to keep Hammann completely fucking useless.
