Appearance Edit

  • The third and fourth members of the Takao-class wear the same blue blouse that bares their midriff and a white skirt with red trim. Choukai has long black hair, red eyes and wears glasses. The protrusions sticking out from her head represent the various details on the top of her main tower.
  • After her second remodel, Choukai's outfit undergoes a complete change; she now wears a white and green blouse that exposes her midriff, a different white dress with red lace, and gains a green hat with red lace.

Personality Edit

  • Choukai is the most soft-spoken of all the Takao-class heavy cruisers; despite that, she speaks somewhat formally when compared to the other members of her class. She shows gratefulness when remodeled or resupplied, and goes straight to the point.


  • Scuttled by Fujinami after gunfire/bomb damage in Battle off Samar, October 25, 1944.
  • Her torpedo armament was detonated by the single stern-mounted 5-inch secondary battery of the escort carrier she was chasing, the USS White Plains (CVE-66). Due to the location of the torpedo launchers (amidships, right next to the engine room and boilers, as opposed to either having the torpedo rooms located aft of the engine room and boilers, or locating them further back near the stern on other IJN heavy cruiser classes), the explosion set off a chain reaction which effectively crippled the ship, rendering it vulnerable to subsequent air attacks that led to the evacuation of its surviving crew and scuttling by Fujinami.
    • Fujinami herself was later sunk by air attacks with all hands aboard. This makes Choukai one of the largest vessels to be sunk with all hands aboard during World War II.
  • Probably the deepest-known wreck, due to the fact she was sunk directly above the Philippine Trench, and probably lies in about 26,600 feet (8,107 meters) of water, well beyond the reach of manned submersibles.
  • Named after Mt. Choukai in Tōhoku region.
  • She appeared in the first Kancolle Drama CD, also dubbed One Nao show, along with other characters in a mini skit. Link to show: (TL is included in comments).
