Kancolle presents Moe battleship girls at TGS 2015..

Much is written about the phenomenon that is Kantai Collection, or Kancolle. The free-to-play online game featuring battleships anthropomorphized as cute girls has spawned an anime, mountains of merchandise, and limitless sexy fanart, cosplay, and doujinshi.

Since Kancolle is still most famous as a game, with over 3 million registered players, it had a strong presence at this year’s Tokyo Game Show at the DMM.com booth. They had an impressive display of detailed figures available, faithfully recreating the 2D moe battleship girls in glorious 3D. And we got photos of some of the best!

If there are any figures you just have to have, then you’re in luck! These figures aren’t just for TGS; they’re all commercially available. However, you’ll have to grind a lot of real life currency to afford them, as most will set you back around 10,000 yen (US$83) apiece. Collecting the entire fleet could end up costing you almost as much as a real-life ship! So for us, and many other attendees, just seeing the collection and getting some close-up photos was enough. Besides, we still have all our in-game girls!
