Event Japanese English Note
黒潮や、よろしゅうな。 I'm Kuroshio, nice to meet 'cha! She speaks in a distinctive Kansai dialect.
Library Intro


Built in the Osaka Civilian Naval Yards, 3rd of the Kagerou-class Destroyers, Kuroshio.

Even though I look like this, I participated in such hard-fought battles as Surabaya, the South Pacific and the third Battle of Solomon, ya' know.


司令はん、うちのこと呼んだ? (改)

Yep, I'm goin'!

Commander, did'cha call me? (Kai)

TL 司令はん as 'Commander' for informality
司令はん、なんやろか? Commander, what's up?
あのー、うち、身体どこも悪くないで? Hey, there's nothing wrong with my body, y'know?
司令はん?……司令はーん?聞こえてないんやろかぁ……。まあ、ええか。のんびりしよー。 Commander? Commaaandeeer? Can yoouu heeeear me? ...Oh well. Guess I'll just take it easy then.
 ⇧ for Kai form, plays Base form's Secretary Married line when sparkled

司令はん、働き過ぎはいかんでぇ。ウチら、こう見えて心配してるんやでぇ。 (改)

It's no good to overwork yourself, Commander. It worries us when we see it. (Kai)
Rough TL. Not sure since it's Kansai-ben. (Kai)
う、うち……いつも司令の事、見てるんやで?ホンマやで?なぁ、信じてぇやー I... I'm... always lookin' at the Commander, y'know? Really! C'mon, believe me...

Start a sortie

Battle start

Enemy fleet spotted! C'mon, follow Kuroshio~! (Kai)

Lit. 'Well then, commencing naval battle'

Night attack

 ⇧ shared with day/night special attacks, support expedition team arrival
たぁ~またま、たまたまやで。気にせんといてーや It just kind of happened that way, don't worry about me. She's brushing off that she's MVP, implying 'don't worry about praising me'.
Minor damaged(1)
うわっ。 Woah!

≥Moderately damaged
あか~ん……。こりゃあかんでぇ……。 Man... this is bad...

  • Kuroshio wears a similar uniform to most members of the Asashio-class, as the Kagerou-class was based on the Asashio-class. She wears a school uniform-esque garment with a vest, blue neckerchief and black shorts underneath her skirt. She has gray hair with a gray hairpiece securing it in place.


  • Kuroshio comes off as friendly and honest, showing a childhood friend-like behavior towards the commander, referring to them informally as "Chief" and generally talking to them in a casual manner rather then as a superior. She shrugs off achievement seemingly out of embarrassment as seen in her MVP line.


  • Sunk in action, 8 May 1943.
  • Along with Kagerou and Oyashio, ran into a minefield, with Kuroshio sinking almost immediately. The other two would sink sometime later.
  • Wreck discovered by accident by Robert Ballard, while he was searching for John F. Kennedy's PT-109 in May, 2002.
  • Her name means "black tide", and refers to the north-flowing ocean current on the west side of the North Pacific (the Kuroshio Current).
  • After WW2, her name was selected three times to the name of submarines. Primary JDS Kuroshio SS-501(1955-1966) was the ex-Gato class submarine USS Mingo SS-261, which was provided from the United States.The second was Uzushio class submarine JDS Kuroshio SS-570 (1974-1994) and Oyashio class JS Kuroshio SS-296 is active now (since 2004).
