To be honest, i never started as a warship fan. When I was growing up I loved the anime Mobile Suit Gundam. Usually every Gundam series has a warship that all the mechs take off from. Well, every space based mech series has a ship like that. I found the robot designs cool but loved the ships even more. Also in video games I tend to play mages and in a way that is what aircraft carriers feel like. You deploy, deal lots of damage from a distance, and the things you deploy come back. In summary, I think aircraft carriers are pretty amazing. The most famous real world version of those appear in WWII games, so I got into WWII games playing aircraft carriers and kind of got hooked. hahaha. Combine aircraft carriers with moe, and you have games like this that totally grab my attention .
