Madam Tanikaze here!
I was helpin' out Hiryuu during the Battle of Midway, damn enemy planes were dropping bombs on us like rain... Back then, C'mmander Katsumi was amazin' like seriously.
Tanikaze speaks in Edokko despite being built in Osaka. Thus, she is the opposite to Ryuujou.

Play Secretary 2 よっ、提督、頑張ってるね! Yoo, Admiral, do your best!

Play MVP こー見えて、この谷風はすばしっこいんだよ? 爆弾なんて、当たる気がしないね! Even though you may not imagine it, I Tanikaze is very alert, right? Bombs can't hit me, I suppose! Tanikaze was the subject of three ferocious air attacks intended for an imaginary Japanese fifth carrier at Midway. The bombers decided to settle for Tanikaze, who was on a mission to recover Hiryuu survivors and was the only enemy in sight. She was too wily and none of the bombs hit.

 Appearance Edit

  • She has short black hair with a white hairband.

Personality Edit

  • She speaks like a stereotypical Edokko despite being built in Osaka. Thus, she is the opposite to Ryuujou (who speaks in Kansai-ben but was built in Yokohama, just nearby Tokyo). Also, because of her accent, she has a good relationship with Suzukaze who shares the same accent, and is sometimes shown spouting Burontisms. According to Isokaze, Tanikaze is a good cook even though she does not look the part, as evidenced in the former's 12pm and 1pm hourly lines.


  • Participated in the Battle of Midway, transport missions to Guadalcanal and evacuation from Guadalcanal.
  • Sunk in action, June 9, 1944 in Sibutu Passage, Tawi-Tawi, Philippines (05°42′N 120°41′E) by USN Submarine USS Harder. 114 of the 240 crew members died while 126 were saved by Urakaze. Sadly Urakaze was torpedoed and sunk with all her hands months later by USS Sealion.
  • Her name means "valley wind".
    • It was first carried by the second and last destroyer of the Kawakaze class in 1918. That class is sometimes refered to as the Tanikaze class because the latter was laid down before Kawakaze (even if she was launched and completed after).
