Bkub Okawa is the troll/mad genius behind the “trash” manga, Pop Team Epic. And as he revealed himself, he’s a huge fan of Azur Lane. So much so, that he released a fanart of four of the franchise’s Destroyers via Twitter.
Well, that’s certainly Bkub Okawa’s art style, as seen on Pop Team Epic. The ships in the fanart are from left to right, Z-23, Ayanami, Javelin, and Laffey. All four of them seem to be their faction’s main destroyers for the TV anime adaptation.
As for the TV anime, it’s currently airing, and they’re even releasing it internationally. It is based on the smartphone game by Shanghai Manjuu and Xiamen Yongshi, which is now also available via iOS and Android.
