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.

I don’t think a formal ceasefire is going to happen, instead a heat of the moment truce in the middle of a fight is going to take place in a mad scramble against the sirens.
Not much going on though, which is both a blessing and a curse since the fighting is finally over and the visuals are back to an acceptable quality.

It’s really bothering me how hair is flowing in the wind at some parts and completely motionless in others.
At least most of the other stuff was passable but there’s only so many weeks left to salvage what this series wants to do with itself. But that’s only me and how I think this series should conduct itself and my expectations might as well be wildly different than the producers are looking for.

You hate to see this type of thing happen.
So if I heard right, next week’s episode is going to be a recap episode that won’t take up a proper episode slot. So Episode 7 will go up in two weeks. First off, that’s a bit worrying that a 12 episode series needs a week break for a recap episode but after this week’s episode, it might be the sad truth that producers really need it.

The fight quality is back up to normal and we pick up where we left off last episode.
We’re nearly at the half-way point of the season and I find myself both oddly comfortable with the pace of this series as well as slightly worried we’ll be rushing towards the finale. For the most part, the three primary plot-lines are at least moving at a recognizable pace, what remains at the end of it is what worries me because it’s either developing into something unimpressive or it’s comfortable pacing won’t stop and we’ll get something rushed. I can only hope that isn’t the case since I’m not exactly hating the adaptation.
