* DevelopmentHell: ''[=KanColle=] Kai'' was originally scheduled to be released sometime in 2014. Then it was pushed back to spring 2015. Then to November 26, 2015. Then to February 18, 2016. To add insult to injury, the final delay was announced one month before the scheduled release. While it was finally released in February 2016, many fans fear that the repeated delays have hurt the game's chances. That worry turned out to be unnecessary, as the franchise's sheer popularity have made up for its shortcoming well enough to becoming one of the top-selling PS Vita game at its release.

** Some fleet girls representing ships from the IJN, the Kriegsmarine, and the Regia Marina, that actually existed during WorldWarTwo have yet to appear in the game. The most blatant case thereof would be that involving ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_aircraft_carrier_Shinano Shinano]]'': Kadokawa had already released [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/2312428 Alpha Art of her in supplementary materials ''way back in 2013'']], but she has yet to make her appearance as of 2017. And with the successive debut of foreign Navies in the same year (currently at ''Four'', [[spoiler:the latest being the Russian Navy during the Spring event]]), and the introduction of more unique ship variants [[spoiler: like the coastal defense ships and escort carriers, for starters,]], the wait is expected to become longer. To add insult to injury, ''Warship Girls'' beat them to it, introducing [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/2563602 its version of ''Shinano'']] first.

* ActorAllusion: One of the roles of Creator/SumireUesaka in this game is the Fubuki-class destroyer. Not exactly important at first glance, but remember that "Fubuki" is Japanese for "Blizzard". Which brings to mind the RedBaron moniker from another character she played: [[AloofDarkHairedGirl Nonna]] from ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer''.

** In the English dub of the anime, Creator/ElizabethMaxwell voices Nagato. Her role as the direct subordinate of the commander packing a ContraltoOfDanger will remind you of another role by Ms. Maxwell: [[WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} Winter Schnee]].

* TalkingToHimself: With LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters and only a limited pool of voice actresses, a lot of conversations in the anime tend to become this. Averted for the English dub of the anime, where individual voice actresses are assigned to one ship girl, as opposed to multiple ship girls of the same class, taking advantage of Creator/{{Funimation}}'s larger talent pool.

** Affirmed that ships did sink at orange (50% or less health), while the sinking mechanics were still uncertain. It took further testing to discover that ships were only at risk of sinking at red (25% or less health).
** When the Autumn 2013 event was extended, he added a new ship, Yahagi, to the drop pool of the E5 boss. Some players who had cleared the event before the extension were not pleased. Then less than one month after the event ended, she was part of the starting LSC pool when it was implemented, available using the minimum recipe. Naturally, those who spent resources farming for her were even less pleased.
** During the Summer 2014 event, ships used in the AL maps were locked out of being used in the MI maps. However, the last map, E6, was not known to lock out ''all'' ships used in the first 5 maps, until frontliners first got there and found that they couldn't use their best ships there, as they had already been locked in earlier maps.
** In the buildup to the Winter 2017 event, the devs [[https://twitter.com/KanColle_STAFF/status/826956081691701249 tweeted]] that one needed to prepare at least 2 saiun for the Winter 2017 event, if you wanted to tackle the latter half of the event on anything other than easy. What was not specified was that you not only needed to consume one saiun and 20 development materials for each of two attempts, it was simply wasted if your attempt failed, potentially making you need more. Some players were not pleased.
