Event Japanese English Note
こんにちは。高雄です。貴方のような素敵な提督で良かったわ。 Good day. I'm Takao. It's great that you look like an excellent Admiral.
Library Intro


If you're talking about cruisers, no matter how you look at it, it has to be me, Takao!

Attached to Vice Admiral Kondo's 4th fleet, I participated in many naval battles.
Overcoming these hard-fought conflicts, I concluded with a diligent defence of Singapore.

Takao sustained heavy damage and finished the war moored at Singapore as an air defence platform.
なんでもおっしゃってくださいね。 Please, you can ask me anything.
気になるところ、ございますか? Is there something that you are worried about?
えーと、えーと…どうしたらよいでしょうか? Um, oh, what should I do?
さあ、出撃の準備はこれでよし…っと、それをそうと…愛宕はちゃんとやってるかしら…あら、提督…?うふ…いいですよ。 Alright, the preparations for the sortie are done... after that, I wonder if Atago is doing fine... Oh, Admiral? Ufu~... That's fine...
 ⇧ for Kai form, plays Base form's Secretary Married line when sparkled

Admiral, Takao will be with you... have no fear.

Admiral, is something wrong? Are you, by chance, a bit tired? I see, then shall I give you a lap pillow? It's okay if it's for a bit, so please have a good rest. This is also a part of your important work, after all. (Kai)

These words of praise... I would like to have that in a more direct way... no, not a medal, but instead...

Admiral, the commander's responsibilities are heavy. If you're feeling a bit tired, you're welcome to have a rest on my chest alright? We will always be... together right? (Kai)

何か、お言付けが来ていますね。 Oh, some orders have arrived.
Joining a fleet
高雄、出撃いたします! Takao, launching!
何かが、私の中で解放されたような…。素敵な気持ち。 Somehow, to be liberated like this... what a great feeling.
この力、提督のおかげですね。 This power is all thanks to the Admiral.

 ⇧ shared with expedition selection, resource collection, instant repair and development
いただきます! また出られりますね Time to eat up! I'll be heading out again later.

Ship construction
新しい仲間です。暖かく迎えましょう! A new comrade. Let's give them a warm welcome!
Return from sortie
作戦完了!艦隊が帰投します! Operation complete! The fleet has returned!

私に続いてくださぁぁい Please follow meeee~
Battle start
砲雷撃戦、用意! Prepare for battle!
Air battle
右舷の敵艦を叩いて! Enemy off starboard, fire!
Night battle
大人しくなさい! Please behave yourselves!
Night attack
馬鹿め、と言って差し上げますわ! I say to you, 'Nuts!' A quote of the reply General Anthony Clement "Nuts" McAuliffe sent in response to a German surrender ultimatum. Also quoted in various works of fiction including Space Battleship Yamato and Girls Und Panzer
 ⇧ shared with day/night special attacks, support expedition team arrival
提督、私の活躍見てくれましたか? Admiral, did you watch my performance?
Minor damaged(1)
いやっ! Oh no!
Minor damaged(2)
きゃあっ! Aaaah!
≥Moderately damaged
な、何よ…それで勝ったつもり!? W-what! Did you think you'd win with that!?
