I wish Mutsu would be as lively in the game as in the Anime, instead of constatly telling me to not play around with fire...

(Yeah i know there is a reason for that ;) )

If you excuse me I got to find a brazier for my office now :cool:

It isn't like Haruna was fundamentally different in the anime. She's just shown another side of hers when she is with Kongou.
In fact, it is a bit consistent that Haruna and Kirishima are following Kongou's antics (which is also the case in other spin off like the 4koma), although they aren't obsessed like Hiei.

I will give you that it was unexpected she would have performed a sneaky roll or the booby trap, but besides that, she is pretty much the same.

Some people have obviously not read the chapter where the sisters try crafting Sanshikidan... Where we have Kongou carrying Haruna over her shoulders while Kirishima I think shouted encouragements. :heh:

I am hopeful for A-150 design Yamato for some reason. I am ok with her either being a separate battleship, or Yamato kai2...
maybe it's because the 51cm guns have made it to the game. There was a proposal made by vice admiral Hiiraga that would have given Fuso the triple 41cm guns in real life.

We already know her design on the anime for some time as she is on the characters section on the official site (http://kancolle-anime.jp/img/character/yamato.png). She also appears in the OP and some promotion material.

Oh no. This one that I am referring to is a paper project successor to the Yamato. Japan had done studies after Yamato on a follow-up that was properly designed to withstand Yamato class in battle. It called for the use of 51cm/45 (20.1") guns. The proposal was scaled down to a ship close to Yamato's displacement, with 3x dual mounted 51cm guns, and boasting Akizuki style long 10cm/65 guns for air defense.

The designs were tabled in 1941, but the age of battleship was over.

Ah you mean about the game. It would be interesting to have her kai ni be something like that with a 51 gun as stock equipment.

How heavy are the 51 cm guns? I know that the 46 cm is as heavy as a destroyer...

Roughly the same as the 46cm in triple mount. We are looking at close to 3000 tons a piece. You can't have a gun any heavier than that when you are not exceeding Yamato's dimensions. This is why I am somewhat hopeful for Yamato to get a kai2 form where she gets this gun, or that it'll be a new shipgirl who will wield this gun.

The Kongou sisters are all nutcases but in the case of the younger two, it is quite obvious they are at least saner than the older pair. However sane they are though, they do have some fairly odd thought processes but that may be the influence of Kongou herself showing through her sisters' actions.

Oh Lord. Kongou completely destroying Fubuki's idealized image of her. GOLD STANDARD!!

One wonders if Kongo was once that elegant back when she was a new battlecruiser. Rather than after her reconstruction as a fast battleship.

Must be the blood from eating black pudding at every morning as part of the British Full Breakfast (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Full_breakfast).

wavehawk

...I don't think that many English people eat Black Pudding, to be honest...but this is KONGOU, so...she probably has Devonshire Tea (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cream_tea) instead. It...fits her personality better.

Just FYI: An Aussie Big Breakfast is similar minus the Black Pudding. Two fried sausages, proper bacon (Bacon. Yuck.), Two poached or sunny side up eggs, grilled or fried mushrooms, hashbrowns or bubble and squeak, a bit of pan-fried spinach, and of course a slice of toast on the side with marmalade or Vegemite (I prefer Vegemite).
Black Pudding--had it once. Never having it again. I hate that stuff. (And this coming from someone who likes Filipino Dinuguuan.)

she's permanently hopped up on tea. There is no other answer.

I've had black pudding. While it doesn't taste all that bad, the iron after taste lasts all day long, and that is annoying as well as disagreeable.

As for bacon, shatter bacon. Cooked short of burnt. Crispy enough to brake, little to no floppiness. Also good for a sandwich. Crunchy bacon and mayo.

Kongou Kongou Kongou!!!

This is one heavy duty, fully-armaments-loaded battleship that actually knows where and when to make proper love. And she comes with full package too! She is definitely the ideal Yamato Nadeshiko girl that every guy dreams of. :love:

I beg to differ, Haruna is closer to the Yamato Nadeshiko stereotype than Kongou. Kongou is closer to Karen from Kirino Mosaic.

Yeah, Yamato Nadeshiko is about being proper lady. Kongou being very energetic and doing things like jumping in people's face disqualify her.

She is great, nonetheless.

You definitely got a point there. :)

Nadeshiko aside, Haruna to me, is pretty much the standard gentle kind girl with pure look, but also with 'unintelligent' (or clumsy, airheaded, etc..) side, which easily captures any guy's heart (me too ;)). If i were to say, shes pretty similar to Mihoko from Saki, i think?

I haven't seen any other sides of Haruna if there's any, but if that's all that Haruna had, then i have to say, Kongou has more than that :D <-- somehow i got the feeling many will prove me wrong on this..

Actually, Haruna isn't exactly a airhead and is quite down to earth.
The only moment she is rather "weird" is when she follows Kongou's antics.

Kakurin
2015-02-24, 09:41
That Haruna isn't an airhead was also shown in the mission briefing of episode 4 where she and Kirishima had no problems getting the idea behind the sortie, while Kongō and Hiei (coincidentally the two that are supposed to be older :heh:) only reacted with "what?".

Actually, Haruna isn't exactly a airhead- She's a lot smarter than her older sister. Not an airhead, no...but definitely Cloud Cuckoolander material---all the Kongou sisters are.

As mentioned in another thread, Musashi has been found (her wreck that is).

But I had a thought. I know this is not possible, but what about Kongo's British cousin? HMS Tiger (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Tiger_(1913)). She was retained after the Washington Treaty of 1922, but scrapped after the London Treaty of 1930.

A part of me wishes that there was more love for the unlucky sisters. It's always Kongou and her sisters it seems.

Considering how they call Yamato strongest ship girl ever, she ha sprobably not yet appeared as a shiop girl at all.
