Event Japanese English Note
吾輩が利根である!吾輩が艦隊に加わる以上、もう、索敵の心配はないぞ! I am Tone! With my addition to the fleet, there will be no problems searching out the enemy! Speaks in old-mannish tone. Tone has very high LOS; she discovered the US fleet at Midway.
Library Intro


The last completed heavy cruiser of the Japanese Navy, oldest sister of the Tone-class, Tone. At Pearl Harbor and Midway, as the eye for the fleet, I unceasingly watched the length and breadth of the ocean. I ended out the war protecting the Kure Naval Yards as a floating fortress, fighting until my blades were broken, arrows were depleted.
うむ。参ろうか! Good. I shall go!
演習か?実戦か? A drill? A battle? Tone was used as a training ship at the end of the war.

提督よ。お主なかなか暇そうじゃの。そういう時はカタパルトの整備じゃ。念入りにな! (改二)

Admiral, you appear to have copious free time? Battle preparations and logistics are important, are they not?

Admiral... you have quite a free time over there don't you. How about use it to adjust my catapult, carefully okay? (Kai Ni)

い、いや、我輩は別に、別に退屈なぞしておらんからなっ! N-no! I'm not... It's not like i'm bored or anything!
 ⇧ for Kai form, plays Base form's Secretary Married line when sparkled

提督よ、お主も頑張っておるな! (改二)
I did it!

Admiral, you're working hard too! (Kai Ni)
そうだ、我輩の索敵機こそが敵艦隊を発見したのだ!!…えっ?その話はいい?…って、では何?なんなのだ? That's right, my scouts have found the enemy fleet!! ...Eh? Enough of that? ...Then what is it? What is this?
Show player's score

どれどれ、どんな調子じゃ?ふ~む… (改二)

A communique has arrived. Shall you be confirming it?

Let's see, now, what's the status like? Hmmm... (Kai Ni)

Joining a fleet
いざ!出陣だな! Come now! To the front!
ほう、これはなかなかのものじゃな Oh, this is rather good.
礼を言おう…筑摩のやつより、また強くなってしまったな! You have my thanks... Compared to that Chikuma, I became stronger again!
やったぞ! I did it!
 ⇧ shared with expedition selection, resource collection, instant repair and development

うむっ!ありがたいぞ! (改二)

Oh, this is rather good.

Yes! I greatly appreciate it! (Kai Ni)

≤ minor damage

そうじゃ!整備は大切じゃな!ね、寝不足なわけではないぞ! (改二)

Yes. Indeed. Frequent refits bring about triumphs!

That's right, maintenance is really important. I-it's not like I lack of sleep alright?(Kai Ni)

≥ moderate damage
ぬぅ、吾輩もちと疲れたぞ……しばらく寝る! Grr.... Even I get tired. For now... to sleep!
修復完了した艦があるぞ。よかったな。 The ship is fully repaired. That's a relief.
Ship construction

新造艦が完成したようじゃぞ。 (改二)

Ship construction has finished.

New ship has finally finished. (Kai Ni)

Return from sortie

艦隊が無事帰投したようじゃな。 (改二)

Operation complete. The fleet has returned.

The fleet has returned safely! (Kai Ni)

Start a sortie

航空巡洋艦、利根。出撃するぞ! (改二)

Tone, sallying forth!

Aviation cruiser Tone, sallying forth! (Kai Ni)

Battle start
その艦貰ったぁ! That ship belongs to me!
Air battle
まだまだ!筑摩のやつには負けんぞ (改二) No, not yet..! I will never lose to Chikuma! (Kai Ni)

この時のために、カタパルトは整備したのじゃ! (改二)

No way, you say the catapult is in bad condition?

The catapult has been serviced, just for this moment! (Kai Ni)

Tone launched her recon planes late at Midway. Her logs were destroyed after the battle, but one of several theories is that her catapult suffered mechanical defects.
Night battle
我が索敵機から逃げられるとでも思ったか! Did you think you could escape from my scouts!?
Night attack

まだまだ!筑摩のやつには負けんぞ (改二)

Not yet, not yet..! I won't lose to Chikuma!

No, not yet..! I will never lose to Chikuma! (Kai Ni)

 ⇧ shared with day/night special attacks, support expedition team arrival
吾輩がいる以上当然の勝利じゃ!筑摩のやつより"少し"お姉さんなのだからな! As long as I'm here, it's victory as expected! Because I am "the" older sister, compared to that Chikuma!
Minor damaged(1)
なっ、至近弾だと? A-a near hit!?
Minor damaged(2)
莫迦な、被弾か!? How foolish! A hit!?
≥Moderately damaged
直撃だと!?この程度では吾輩は沈まん! Direct hit!? ...I shall not sink with merely this!
抜かった…!我輩が沈む、か…百万年の昼寝だな… I have blundered...! I am sinking, no? The siesta of a million years... Unfortuately, after sinking in the war, Tone was bombed again underwater

  • In fiction, Tone is often depicted trying to keep a mature front of her little sister, Chikuma.
  • She is notable for her old-fashioned militaristic speech patterns, and has a somewhat aggressive personality


  • She has long, brown hairin twintails with two white hair ribbon accessories. At least in official art, at least one strand of hair comes down between her eyes.
  • Before upgrade, she wears a single elbow glove on her left arm that has a seaplane runway on it, a long green jacket belted at the waist (with some ambiguity as to whether it's acting as a short dress, or she's just wearing no pants), and asymmetrical legwear in the form of a thigh-high sock on her left (runway) side.
  • With battle kit on, all her turrets are on her right side.
  • After upgrade, she has a much more visually distinct appearance, wearing a shorter green jacket, a long black skirt with such extreme side slits as to make it a pelvic curtain, and no visible underwear. (Many posts make light of the fact that she apparently wears nothing underneath a single loose piece of clothing...)


  • The reason why Tone only has turrets on her right side is because both Tone and Chikuma mounted all four turrets of their main battery forward of the main mast. The rear deck was equipped with a heavy AA battery and a complicated track and turntable system that allowed the quick launch of all 5 (compared to the 3 that all other cruisers carried) of her floatplane reconnaisance aircraft. This is depicted in her original form as a white pattern on her left sock, and on the skirt of her cheongsham in her Kai Ni form.
  • Participated in the Indian Ocean Raid in 1944 which culminated in a civilian massacre on her decks despite attempts at prevention by her captain.
  • Received her Kai Ni on 23/04/2014, together with Chikuma and Bismarck.
  • Her name was first carried by the protected cruiser Tone sole in her class, in 1907.
  • Tone is a heavy cruiser in Kantai Collection, notable in game stats terms for her high LOS stats and recon seaplanes.
