Quick update on Kantai Collection (aka KanColle) anime. All the anime season preview sites and Summer 2014 charts I previously reviewed had KanColle anime listed for this upcoming summer season. Starting about a week ago, those same sites and updated versions of charts removed the show from the 2014 Summer listings. The reasons given are that with the summer anime season just two weeks away, there has been a noticeable lack of any recent news, updates let alone a released PV for the show.
When the anime was announced in September 2013, it was stated that producers were aiming for broadcast “next summer or later”. The recent dearth of any new information not to mention lack of PV certainly do bode ill for the anime airing this summer. At this point, I think it safe to assume that the anime will air “later”. Question now is, what is “later”? Fall 2014 season? Winter 2015 season? For KanColle fans, such as myself, hopefully “later” means the Fall 2014 season.
