Moe Military closer to (fictional) reality

That moe military thing I mentioned in an old post seems closer to becoming a real thing.

Just announced is an anime adaptation for “Kantai Collection,” a browser game that features moe anthropomorphized WWII battleships. Expect to see large guns flanking the outfits of these lovely ladies. Popularity has skyrocketed with a wide range of fan art on hand. One example shown here is with one of the most popular girls, Shimakaze:

Attacking from the Land, Sea and Sky!

In just the past few years military themed anime has taken top spots in otaku viewership. So it looks like we have a good lineup for a moe military to invade our hearts. Let’s take a look:

  • Starting off with the skies, “Strike Witches” takes the same approach as Kantai Collection by anthropomorphizing war planes.

Air - Strike Witches

  • As mentioned earlier, naval operations will be headed by the KC girls.

Naval - Kantai Collection

  • For ground coverage, we have schoolgirls in tanks redundantly titled “Girls und Panzer” patrolling the land.

Land - Girls und Panzer

Land - Sabagebu

Now that looks like a military that will bring cute to the battlefield. And they are not afraid to use the M-bomb, the Moe bomb that is!


The moe blanket looks to cover much of the military well. Now all we need is a big crossover to tie it all in.
