Intro: Shoutout to fellow Cardfighters and Captains!

 

Background: Skip this at your discretion. Main point is at the Story section.


I have been an avid reader of Royal Navy History, especially so their fleet of battleships. From the mighty Dreadnought, to the Queen Elizabeth class-Battleship, the first RN BB with 15 inch guns, to the Nelson, having the distinction of having the biggest caliber of guns in a battleship (16 inch, they also had 18 inch, but was reserved for monitors and experiment on Furious), to the mighty King George V class Battleship, having 10x14 inch guns, and the spearhead of Britain's military might, alongside it's carrier force, but I was most interested upon the particular battleship, HMS Vanguard She is the last Battleship ever built by the UK, and never sought a chance to prove herself in combat (but did serve as the Royal Family's Yatch in their visit to North Africa), and was the last of a long lineage of naval history for the Royal Navy.

 

Flash forward to HS Days. Thanks to AXN, Animax, and previous fascination with Yu-Gi-Oh, I have been drawn towards the anime / TCG series Cardfight Vanguard. It's just awesome. Got myself (and my best friend) a deck. We just had a ton of fun

 

Story:

 

Well, while watching the video "The Last Battleship", a documentary about HMS Vanguard's last moments, and her journey from Flagship of the Royal Navy to scrap metal, there was a part, where the said Battleship broke off her escorts, and she ran aground near a pub, "as if to acknowledge the holiday crowds..."

At the next tab, was one of the then-new episodes of CFV. And the chorus just got me laughing and rolling on the floor (literally!)

I immediately remembered the recent "run-in" of th previous ship running aground in the shallow ground, breaking off from the group, and "breaking her spell" XD

 

Proposal:

 

Make an anime skin for the ship, based off the Anime.

 

Idea in mind: Blue Wave Dragon, Tetra-Drive Dragon of the Aqua Force Clan.

In Cardfight Vanguard, the Aqua Force clan is a clan focused around maritime / naval units, and is fitting anime for the game World of Warships

Now, the ship's 8 x 15 inch guns would be replaced by the dragon's cannons, and the ship decorated with all sorts of Aqua Force stuff.

Anyways, just this idea floating around in my mind
