Highly dependant on how many episodes the anime will get.
My take is somewhere in the second half of the season though.

That's what I'm hoping for. Also, somehow I think she'll be this awesome looking girl that's actually a coward and a whiny brat in battle. I'd want for Fubuki to protect, but then there would be no reason to add Yahagi. What a dilemma.

It isn't like Yahagi is mandatory with Yamato, especially they didn't bother including Yukikaze.
Also, no, Yamato is more like a "normal girl". Responsible and polite, quite similar to the usual non tyrannic Student Council President archtype.

If they go with Midway in the middle of the season (episode 6ish), I'm guessing Yamato will appear after, like ep7-8.

That would be a pretty severe misrepresentation of Yamato. Just giving you an idea, here are her lines in the game:

I see... well, my fault for not being well informed. Sorry.

There's already Akagi, though, so we don't really need another awesome sempai to look up to.

No, I'd rather not think Akagi could die.

Musashi describes her as a shy girl that doesn't go out much.
In the few sentences she says about her one could think Yamato was the younger sister.

I expect a certain running gag around her too

Why does Yamato sound so childish to me? I'd thought she have a more mature voice like Nagato.

She will probably sound a bit more mature in the anime because she will interact with fellow ships that are younger than her instead of the admiral who has the authority.

Yamato would be a new ship. She might be shy and unsure.

Taking Musashi's words for a bare coin she is probably a hikimori.
Just kidding.

Yamato's sentences aside, I can see her as a shy and friendly version of a sheltered class president.
Like her

Yamato historically was kept back a lot, known as Hotel Yamato, since she spent more time sitting at Truk than doing any fighting in 1943.

But don't let that fool you, she is very deadly and has very accurate gunnery, rivaled only by Kongo in the Japanese Navy. Some sources record that she mission killed an escort carrier at a range over 30,000 meters. She is also known for her last stand on the way to Okinawa.

In other words, one might regret treating her as a laughing stock, even though she consumed the most resources. Her 46cm guns will pummel one to shame.

I wonder... Is she a Yamato Nadeshiko type?

It would actually be good if she wasn't too much like her game counter part - gives hope for some of the other ships.
Like Maya where I still try to figure out whether her speech pattern is supposed to be arrogant or childish.

So yeah Yamato being at least a bit different in the anime would wake hope in that regard.

Those 18 inch guns can certainly ruins someone's day.

Fun fact:

Yamato's shell caliber is actually BIGGER than on paper, which I think is pretty surprising given the accuracy of those babies in spite of the rule of thumb, bigger shell = more dispersion. Explains the penetration though.

This is modelled in the game where she appears flatter than she actually is; this is revealed when Yamato receives quite a bit of damage.



Even more fun fact:

Takatatsu Ayana, the voice of Yamato, is a Cute-type idol who is really embarrassed of her humongous E-class assets and often dressed in ways to make them appear smaller.
