Play Introduction いい風きてる?

次世代型駆逐艦のプロトタイプ、 あたし、天津風の出番ね。

Is a nice breeze coming?

It's time for me, the next generation destroyer prototype, Amatsukaze, to debut.

The wordplay here references how Amatsukaze is the template for the then-future Shimakaze.
Play Library 陽炎型駆逐艦九番艦の天津風です。
I'm Amatsukaze, the Ninth Kagerou-class Destroyer.
I was tasked with being the test bed of a new type of high-temperature, high pressure boiler meant for the next generation of destroyer.
With the data in tow, I was able to hand this over to Shimakaze.
I was in many tight spots, but I have been able to constantly overcome them. It was really tough!
The boiler was a prototype design made for Amatsukaze specifically. She underwent many extreme testing scenarios, which passed with flying colors, and was later implemented into Shimakaze.

Play Secretary 2 どういう風の吹き回しかしら。 I wonder what kind of wind is blowing.

  • Amatsukaze, upon remodeling, gains a small smile on her CG art. Her "hairpin" (chimney) also gains a heart-shaped smoke cloud. Players in the community have suggested that this might be a sign of her warming up to the admiral (Amatsukaze was historically (mistakenly) abandoned for some time).


  • She is a template tsundere. From her dialogue it can be inferred that she cares about Shimakaze as more than a friend. This relationship is likely derived from her historical role as the prototype for Shimakaze.


  • She shares a captain (Tameichi Hara) with both Shigure and Yahagi. Captain Hara was the only IJN Destroyer Captain from the start of the war to survive to the very end.
  • Survived a torpedo attack from the USS Redfin which blew off her bow after setting off her forward magazine and killed 80 of her crew; the rest of her crew abandoned her under the assumption she was too heavily damaged. She was found still afloat six days later by a Japanese patrol plane and was towed back to Singapore to be fitted with a temporary bow.
  • Her name means "heavenly wind".
    • It was first carried by the second Destroyer of the Isokaze class in 1917.
  • Sunk in action by the USAAF, April 6, 1945 near Amoy (now Xiamen), China (24°30′N 118°10′E).
  • Scuttled April 10, 1945.
  • Her last captain Tomoyuki Morita (He was 25 years old at the time, the youngest destroyer captain in the Imperial Japanese Navy) wanted to return her to Japan. However, it was not possible to save her because of the grounding and enemy attacks. 20 years later, the Maritime Self Defense Force's first guided missile destroyer JDS Amatsukaze (DDG-163) was commissioned and was attached to 1st Escort Flotilla at Yokosuka. In 1971, a new commander was assigned to the Flotilla: Rear Admiral Tomoyuki Morita. Finally they were able to meet again in Japan.
  • In 2012, the wreckage of Amatsukaze was found by a Chinese engineering ship. About 30 tons of the wreckage was salvaged, cut into pieces and sold as scrap metal before the intervention of local relics administration departments.
  • Along with Shimakaze, Teruzuki, AkizukiHatsuzuki and Suzutsuki, she is one of 6 Destroyers with "sentient turrets".
  • Although there are no relationship between the two, her name share the same Kanji characters "天津“ with Tianjin city in China. So her name literally in Chinese means "Tianjin wind"
