KanColle Producers Celebrate Ten Years With Special Yamato Illustration
It has been 10 full years since the boats of KanColle shipped off to create the mega Kantai Collection franchise. To celebrate the now decade-long franchise, the C2 Staff Twitter account, which is run by the producers of the series, released a celebratory illustration of the powerful Yamato drawn by Shizumayoshinori.

The latest anime to be released was KanColle Season 2: Let’s Meet at Sea, which was set in a different continuity than that of the original KanColle series and film, along with having a new staff, a new studio they work at and new voice actors. The series is directed by Kazuya Miura and features animation production by Engi. The show premiered on November 3 and ran for eight episodes, with Crunchyroll streaming the series.
Crunchyroll currently streams the 2015 KanColle TV anime and describes the story of the series as such:
Set in a world where humanity has lost control of the oceans to the “deep sea fleet,” the only hope to counter this threat are the Kanmusu, a group of girls who possess the spirit of Japanese warships. The story revolves around Fubuki, a destroyer who comes to the Chinjufu base to train with other Kanmusu. Watch as their stories unfold!
