Kantai Collection, which Kotaku first covered in June 2013, is getting an anime series next year. And the trailer for it has already spawned an amusing meme. Let’s have a look.

In one part of the anime trailer (which you can see below), the character Akagi glides across the face of the water, firing an arrow. You can see the image in the lede GIF. Already, the image has become iconic among Kan Colle fans.

This image has spawned a LEGO tribute.

And a coffee one as well.

But as Naver notes, the images that are starting to go viral on Twitter are the Photoshops where fans are substituting Akagi with…whomever or whatever they can think of.
