For a bit of history, Kantai Collection is a browser-based CCG published by Kadokawa and hosted at DMM. It was launched on 23 April 2013, and has since then experienced a surge in both exposure and popularity, with around 800,000 registered users as of September 2013.

The gameplay is centered upon naval battles, with individual characters represented by various cards with different attributes. Each of the characters are moe anthropomorphisms of World War II naval warships which are depicted as cute girls, known as "Fleet girls" (艦娘, kanmusu, literally "ship daughter"). These personified warships are based on real-life vessels which are explained in detail within the game; the physical characteristics, appearances and personalities of each of the girls correlate in some way to the real-life vessel (for example, ships with a larger displacement tonnage are often depicted with larger breasts, with the notable exception of a few aircraft carriers). The player takes on the role of an admiral (提督, teitoku), who can either male or female, and organises their fleets in battle in order to win. Combat is largely automated, and manual actions by the player include micromanagement such as building and repairing.

So yeah, pretty much Anime WarshipGirls, the Game.
