^ What? I thought clothing that conceals cup sizes only exists in anime.

On paper...back in the very late 1930s and early 1940s, Yamato was thought ot be smaller that she actually was. Her guns were covered up as 15.7 inch (40 cm) and the Americans figured she'd have 16 inch guns and roughly like maybe the USS Iowa in size.

They were quite shocked to find that her guns were 46 cm and she was a lot wider than expected. Heavier and more advanced than the Americans expected from the Japanese in 1941.


The shipgirl, Yamato, will be however she is, but I still think it be funny the roles are reversed and it is Fubuki who is "sempai" to the elegant looking Yamato.

Takatatsu Ayana? I just realized who that is....Azusa (K-On)

Also Ayumi in TWGOK

I want a role reversal too. I mean, pretty sure Mutsuki likes her a lot now, but someone fangasming over Fubuki would be hilarious.

Looking at some official illustrations, it seem Fubuki and Yamato would be close.

I doubt Fubuki will be the sempai, simply because 'my guns are bigger than yours'
Jokes aside though, Yamato will probably be a flagship of one of the fleet, maybe with Fubuki as an escort.

Also, it would be fun if she had a conversation with the admiral about putting a nuclear reactor inside her to reduce fuel costs to almost 0. (She'd certainly have the space)

Akagi doesn't have guns like that and she's the cool sempai (different types of ships, I know, but so is Yamato). Also that gun comment makes it sound like Yamato will be a jerk.

Just going to post again but, Akagi has the most death flag out of the entire characters in this series...

Not sure if scuttling will happen like history but considering her characteristics and how harsh the operations will be in the future as described by Nagato, I am expecting multiple characters to sink in later episodes... (EXCEPT THAT WILL BE MAJOR SUICIDE MOVE BY THE ANIME STAFF IN TERMS OF DVD/BLU-RAY SALES!!!)

Akagi going away would advance Fubuki's character I suppose. Take away the beloved trainer, provide motivation to press on against the Abyssal. Depending on what they want to do with Kaga, that could mean bitter treatment of Zuikaku as the replacement carrier for the lost Akagi. Or if more of the carriers are lost (as in historical Midway) than I suspect Yamato to be their replacement in the story.

Though I'd rather Yamato be a newbie trying to get along with Fubuki (who is at least getting somewhat skilled and is considered special). Mostly because I find it funny to have a battleship of Yamato's size looking up to a destroyer that is shorter than she is.

I doubt Yamato will be a beginner really. I think she will most likely be a transferred ship from another Naval Base. Considering how she is like the strongest BB, even higher than Nagato, I highly doubt she will be some newbie.

Exactly. I doubt Yamato will be like a totally new newcomer. :s

Considering the anime is supposed to be about Fubuki's grown, I do expect someone to sink around the middle of the series, this time someone who would affect Fubuki more, like Akagi, or at least someone who was in the same fleet as she was at the time but who she wasn't able to save.

But I don't expect too many ships to sink overall, and I expect that near the end Fubuki to show her grown to actually save a comrade from a dire situation that would probably sink her without Fubuki's intervention.

One thing that always makes me wonder is that none of the girls seem to harbour any resent towards humanity, even the ones that got scuttled. (Akagi for example).

Same goes for Nagato who was sunk in a nuclear test.

The only ship that makes slight references to that is Mutsu, who repeatedly tells you to not play around with fire. And even that sounds more like she is being teased than actually angry.

The Abyssals on the other hand have absolutely no love for humanity at all and try to keep humans off the sea. Hearing them talk during battles they even make references of having been sunk in the past

So if the anim:e brings any revelation of how the abyssals came to be my money goes to

Abyssals = The ship's resent/hatred that got separated from the rest of the ship's soul.
(Note here goes to that folktale that objects can get a soul if being cared for over a certain amount of time)

So... considering how that flagship Wo got damaged, I guess it isn't far fetched to expect a Wo kai afterwards.

Nagato mentioned to Fubuki that the Abyssals know their code.

Reference to the JN-25?

What would be clever would be a reverse Midway. Send out a fake message to see if the Abyssal are reading their mail and then use that to set a trap.

I am hoping that Shoukaku will lend her planes to Zuikaku, that the admiral here somehow managed to get a bucket for Shoukaku so that all 6 carriers could be fielded, that Tone's catapult malfunctioning won't be an issue this time since the carriers will actively scout on the orders of Fubuki (who is taking recon seriously) and that the ship girls stick with getting their planes into the air ASAP instead of fiddling around with what to launch.

More importantly, I am hoping that their commanding officer isn't Chuuichi Nagumo and he isn't sitting in Fubuki.

That would be pretty cool.

Not sure if this is just a hunch of a single commander or a naval wide thing. Remember, the MC naval district was not even the main attack force for Operation MO which would be the Shouhou force. If it's just a single commander, it might not have a large impact on policy given the strict rank structure.

I want a later Fubuki class ship so that Fubuki can be the Sempai and raise all the death flags. (although she should already be the sempai to the DesDiv 6 girls)
