I'm wondering about possible implications regarding the orders Nachi got.Why not reveal to them before going? The enemy seems to know their code, but they could always have told them before going out just like what was done with the plan for this mission. So it makes me think there may be a spy, or at least Nagato or the admiral think so. Be it an spy on their naval base or on a different one. It would also explain how the Abyssal seems to know the actual base they would attack to lay their trap, even thought they used a fake base name in communications and had a decoy attack. And since the mission began they had radio silence.

Not really, Kisaragi sinking did its job: making we realize it's possible for them to sink so we get more tense at the battles. But like I said before, I don't think anyone major will sink now (maybe someone off screen like how it may have been the case with that light carrier), on the very end, for a few reasons:

As it was said in an interview, the show is about Fubuki grow. Fubuki having been training to protect the others, specially Akagi and fight the enemy planes, so I would expect to see the result of that grow at the end with she saving them.

Akagi death would be important for Fubuki's grown, but that would have had to happen earlier, preferably at a middle point of the show. If it happens now it would be incredible cheapened out, as there isn't time to portray it well.

A lot about this episode was changing that fate that seems to be leading the ship-girls to their demise. So I would expect them to actually be able to change it properly. Some shows would prefer to take a darker path, and while I tend to love those kinds of shows, that's not what this anime have been building up too.

It's the consequence of not making a proper development due to the excessive Fubuki's focus of this series.

Having the Cranes and Taiho with Yamato would change the odds considerably even if Akagi sinks. Even more if Nagato and Mutsu head out as well (rather than stay and defend the base).

This anime doesn't appear to be about the horrors or futile nature of war. Nor is it glorifying it. The loss of one shipgirl adds to the tension this late on as the posibility that others could sink is real. Akagi's dream reminding people of the real Midway increases that tension as Akagi repeats Nagumo's mistakes, while Nagato potentally repeats Yamamoto's mistakes. But things have changed. Things are different. Fubuki being as advances as she is is only one thing. Having Shimakaze around at all is a big thing. Taiho is another (though I wonder if she's remember this happening, she's seems sad).

Having Akagi sink at this time would be a downer, but would work as a narrative if they do intend to have a second season, thus Akagi's death pushing Fubuki even harder as they head to the Solomoms (and Ironbottom Sound). If they go their...and keep things moderately historical....Fubuki will not make it out of the series alive. Which is why things have to change.

What is the line from the OP, 'Don't repeat the tragedy'. All the pieces are in place to turn the tide of the war. Remember that the Shipgirls and humanity have been more or less losing until recently. In history, Japan was sweeping the Pacific with nothing really stopping them. The turning point was Midway. Either the Japanese could continue on, or the Allies would stop them. Now? The Shipgirls are advancing, but will the Abyssal turn the tide and retake the oceans again?

Nagato's questioning why they are there is interesting though. And it is a valid question with no answer.

Aw, hell no. This cannot be. If Akagi goes down, we're gonna have Fubuki crying and weepin EVEN MORE. NO, THIS CANNOT HAPPEN.

And ayo, Yamato looked so cool and elegant. I wish we got to see the full transformation sortie.

Welll....

You can say this is what happens when the player character is MISSING from the show. The girls are going mobile doll mode on us without player approval. Again, the Teitoku better get his internet connection back up before his own fleet destroys itself before he could reap the awards.

I wonder what this guy is doing with his internet. Japan has the 2nd fastest internet in the world and costs far less than most ISPs in the west.

Nono....THis is what happened:

Possibility 1
When naval base was hit, the Teitoku disconnected, hence why there is no body when the base was razed to the ground.

Possibility 2
Teitoku got banned from current server due to cheating (more than 4 fleets), creating the Kisaragi bug.

EDIT: Wait, did they send out Tone when she was Chuuhaed, BUCKET her or repair her before you sortie!

Its only her catapult thats broken, which is a reference to actual happenings.
During WWII her catapult malfunctioned and her recon planes couldn't launch.
Pretty much what Akagi said about destiny

Oh wow, they're really milking the "We must learn from the past or doomed to repeat it" thing for all it's worth.

Wo was awesome. I am content.

What, still no Midway Hime? I'm still waiting for those tracts of land!

Can't wait for last ep! Hope we'll see Jun'you and the rest of the ships from the other base.

Dere Nagato shows her vulnerable side to Mutsu. <3

Also Akagi and Kaga sleep next to each other, Akagashipping is a go!

Hmm. I've got a copy of Shattered Sword at home. I really should get to reading it.
