Event Japanese English Note

初春じゃ♪このわらわがついてる!大丈夫じゃ! (改二)

We are Hatsuharu. We thank you in advance.

We are Hatsuharu. With us following, thou wilt be fine! (Kai Ni)

Speaks in old-fashioned dame tone. TL Note - using royal 'we' to indicate the 'classical' nature of her speech; it is archaic and upper-class.
Library Intro


We are the 1st Hatsuharu-class destroyer, Hatsuharu.

We were attached to the Northern Force. As the clouds of war gathers, we did our duty in the Northern seas at such places as Attu and Kiska.
The seas around Hokkaido are our favourite, no? The Gulf of Manila and Ormoc... ah, we are weak to the heat.

Hatsuharu was put under Adm. Hosogaya for Operation AL. She sunk in Manila Bay from fires caused by bombing.
なんぞ、気になることでも? Oh, are you interested in us?
ふむ。わらわをそうして慕うとよいぞ Yes, this is how you should be treating us. (わらわ in classical JP is 'I', not mistress)

貴様は本当に落ち着きがないのう……なんじゃ?わらわに興味があるのかや…? (改二)

You graceless swine! Can you not calm down a little?

You really can't calm down, can you?... Why is that? Dost thou take such interest in us? (Kai Ni)

貴様 (kisama) was once an honorific term for "you" long before the Edo period. It is now a very disrespectful term today that is usually used towards someone despicable.
あー、なんじゃ、その…わらわも、もう少し働いても、いいぞ……っ……いいぞっ? (改) Aah, well, you know, it would be all right if we did some work... it would be all right, you know? (Kai)
 ⇧ for Kai form, plays Base form's Secretary Married line when sparkled

貴様も…少し休むといいぞ。そうじゃ、時には休むことも大切なのじゃ。…いい子じゃ♪ (改)
We are, somehow... joyful.

You should... rest a little better as well. Of course, we can rest when it's important. ...It's pleasant! (Kai)
貴様ぁ…っ!?ななな…な…!?…わ…わらわにそのような、破廉恥な言葉を…。……は…恥を知れ!恥を… You...!? W-w-w-w-aaa! To expose us to such shameful words! Shame on you! For shame...
Show player's score

そうじゃな、情報は大切じゃ。よいよい。。。とくと確認するがよいぞ。 (改二)

There is something for you; a correspondence, perchance?

That's right, information is important. Good good. There is a lot to inquire from this. (Kai Ni)

Joining a fleet
初春、推して参るぞ! Hatsuharu, casting off!
ふむ。また強くなったのう Yes. We became stronger once more.
今までの艤装では物足りないというのか?ぜーたくじゃのう Did you not say that the equipment up to now was not quite up to par? The Hatsuharu-class introduced new technology to the IJN fleet
初春、なんぞ…目出度いのう We are, somehow... joyful.
 ⇧ shared with expedition selection, resource collection, instant repair and development

助かるのう…苦しゅうないぞ。 (改二)

Yes. We became stronger once more.

We are grateful... no hardships in this. (Kai Ni)

≤ minor damage

ふう……風呂はいいのう。やはり檜の風呂は最高じゃ。 (改二)

Yes, we shall take a small respite.

Phew... this bath is nice. As I thought, cypress-tree baths are supreme. (Kai Ni)

Apparently admirals build their baths out of expensive cypress.
≥ moderate damage
この工廠は、腕の良い職人がおるのう。安心じゃ。 This arsenal has such skilled craftsman, we are unperturbed. As in Naval Arsenal [海軍工廠]
やれやれ…やっと修理完了かい? Good grief.. Are the repairs finally finished?
Ship construction
新しい艦娘が参ったようじゃのう A new ship is complete, perchance?
Return from sortie
艦隊が帰投したようじゃぞ。勝利かや? It appears that the fleet has returned. Surely, a triumph?
Start a sortie
初春、出撃じゃな Hatsuharu, sallying forth.
Battle start

わらわの舞が見たいのか?仕方ないのう…とくと見るがよいわっ! (改二)

Tally ho! Naval engagement, commencing!

Thou wishest to see our dance? Very well... we shall show thee plenty! (Kai Ni)

Can also be used during regular attacks.
Air battle
ふふっ、わらわには見える Hmmhmm, we can see it.
Night battle
いよいよ…わらわの本領発揮じゃ! At long last... we shall demonstrate our true purpose!
Night attack

逃がしはせん…せ、ん、め、つ、じゃあ~! (改二)

We shall dispose of them!

They shall not escape....we-shall-wipe-them-out! (Kai Ni)

 ⇧ shared with day/night special attacks, support expedition team arrival
この勝利、わらわの力ではない。皆の働きあってのことじゃ This triumph, it was not solely due to our efforts. Everyone did their part.
Minor damaged(1)
くっ、やられただと!? Geh... We are hit!
Minor damaged(2)
この初春の怒りを買ったようじゃのう! Verily, thou shalt experience our wrath!
≥Moderately damaged
まだまだ…この程度では沈まぬぞ! 'Tis but a scratch! We shall not sink from just this!
わらわも…沈む…か We are... sinking?

  • Hatsuharu wears a serafuku similar to Nenohi's or Murakumo's. Similar to Tenryuu, her rigging is riddled with mechanical parts. Her rigging also includes robotic arms meant for the cannons to attach to, and the cannons themselves are able to levitate on their own. Hatsuharu has a large "V" levitating above her head. She is always seen holding a hand fan, and has purple hair held in place by a distinctive hair piece with square ornaments and hot pink eyes. She wears shoes with two fins angled out and black stockings.
  • Post-remodel, Hatsuharu's rigging and outfit undergo a complete change. Her hair becomes messier and is more vividly colored. Her hairpin remains largely the same with the exception of the addition of larger and longer square-shaped ornaments, and gains actual deck guns instead of cannons on robotic arms. Her dress is changed to be a modified version of her original dress, and has a harness strap and a belt. Hatsuharu also gains what appears to be a whistle on her collar with the same square ornaments hanging off of it. She loses her stockings and finned shoes and replaces them with heels resembling the hull of a ship. She retains her hand fan and mechanical parts of her rigging.


  • Hatsuharu speaks like an upper-class dame from the 1500s and 1600s. She uses archaic phrases similar to members of the Royal family and aristocrats from that time period.


  • Sunk in action, November 13, 1944 in Manila Bay, Philippines (14°35′N 120°50′E).
  • Her name means "the beginning of Spring".
    • It was first carried by the twenty-third ship of the first Kamikaze class in 1906.
  • The Hatsuharu class were originally intended to number a dozen, but Hatsuharu was found to be top-heavy. Nenohi and Hatsuharu were completed and then modified to fix the issue, Wakaba and Hatsushimo were modified during construction (thus their different uniforms) (Ariake and Yugure, the last two, had barely been begun, and so were constructed differently). The remaining planned six ships became the first six ships of the Shiratsuyu class.
  • The Hatsuharu class was an attempt to build a slightly downgraded, hence cheaper version of the Fubuki class.
  • She received her Kai Ni with the 10/10/2014 update.
  • Her outstanding AA stat at Kai Ni reflects to her historical upgrade after she had been struck from a US dive bomber off of Kiska on 17 October, 1942. Oboro, who accompanied her, sank during the attack. After limping back to Paramushiro on her own steam, she was docked at Maizuru Naval Arsenal for repairs. During this time, she was outfitted with numerous Type-96 25mm AA guns and a Type 22 Surface RADAR. She was later outfitted with a Type 13 radar, as faithfully reproduced by her Kai Ni stock equipment.


  • Composition: A48.
  • Sortie (Clearance): B37.
