Kadokawa Games launched the original free-to-play browser game with the service provider DMM.com in April 2013. In the game, players compete with cards featuring female moe characters inspired by Japanese World War II warships such as aircraft carriers, battleships, and cruisers. Players build, organize, and repair their anthropomorphized fleet to progress through maps.
The original game is inspired a television anime adaptation. The anime premiered in January. The franchise will get an anime film in 2016, and the television series will get a sequel. The anime's official Twitter account indicates that the movie and the sequel are separate projects that are going into production at the same time.
Update: Warship/battleship terminology fixed. Thanks, Panzer Vor.
