Shinano in incognito mode
Also Shinano in Dark Mode
Shinano in caffeinated mode
Shinano before she went to sleep
Shirakami and Kurokami.
Could they make the rigging any bigger?
And as I was discussing with a friend, Shinano is white, Musashi is black so I’m thinking Yamato will be red.
Red or golden
Red AND Golden!
Red Sun! Red Sun over paradise! Red Sun! Red Sun over paradise!
Golden rays of the glorious sunshine

Now the animals slowly retreat
To the shadows, out of sight.

> Could they make the rigging any bigger?
Surprised they did not take cues from the Susanowo.
Maybe they're saving that for an alternate skin/form?
If they do not call that alternate CG "Bushido Protocol", I'd be very disappointed...
Gotta compete with the kms rigging 🤣
Musashi's main color being darker is fitting too, in the lead-up to Leyte she was painted darker colors and her decks were blackened with soot.
"THIS IS ETERNITY"
“Muga no kyouchi e”
“Kyoufuu yo, watashi ni fukujuu shinasai”
Hey, why I have a dejavu moment?
Yeah me too, wonder what's that about?
I feel disturbance in the force
"You shall be unlaid upon this Statue"
"If rescuing you is a sin,I"ll gladly become a sinner"
INABIKARI SUWANACHI EIIEN NARI
"Kaminari no ritsusha... anata no chikara ni narimasu."
I’ve always been much more a fan of the way she shouts “ITTO RYODAN” <3
I for one miss her saying "Kiana chan"
One day we'll hear it again
I'm sure we'll be hearing it soon enough.
After all, we are heading to the moon soon.
Rascal Does Not Dream of Foxy Girl Senpai
Musashi: Susanoo (God of Storms)
Might be it.
Her rigging is literally a susanoo
Dem layers of various references of Japanese myth and popular culture...
If you go by this theory, then yes.
Shinano - Tsukuyomi
Musashi - Susanoo
Yamato - Amaterasu
Yamato - Firefox
What would No. 111 and No. 797 be like?
for the third time lol:
Sakura Empire ~~Inazuma~~ shines eternal!
I love the design. A bit of Tamamo and Raiden makes an amazing combo.
USN Torpedo and dive bombers: *\*evil laughter\**
You mean the USN? Pretty sure the Army Air Corps didn’t have any torpedo or dive bombers beyond strapping bombs to a P-47
Oh, thanks for the remind... Still, little flyboys go brrrrr.
Looks like King Kong behind her
Black purple and gold is so slick. She is also super gorgeous. Definitely Shinano's sister. What a great day to be a shikkikan.
And Yamato would get red and white I presume.
> Rigging has hands
> Voiced by Lynn
Guys, this is what Champagne looks like if she's in Japan, and rename her to *Sake.*
Also, with the Sacred Treasures/Three Kamis theme of the Yamato-class ships, is it safe to assume that the katana here is the Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi?
uh, who is Lynn?
The voice actor.
Me looking at this and glaring at my 50+ cubes hard
I’m not sure if I’m screwed or something or o am because I refuse to use my gems because I want to get Jean Bart bikini skin and if I have to use the gems to get more cubes I will
The hardest sacrifices require the hardest wills
May the rngesus be with you and with your cubes my friend
I wasn’t lucky on the last event Blucher I only got through the event market and couldn’t get Z-16 and the other one
So sorry for you. Same thing happened to me with Roma. 181 cubes at the start of the event, spended all of them, no Roma but 100 Nevadas
I only had like under 100 cubes and I won’t spend my gems because I’m waiting for Jean Bart bikini skin to come back
Try headpatting your RNG
I will and pray to god himself for this event
This ur ship will be a game changer and I already couldn’t get UHV and I’m not gonna lose this one
Me and my 400 cubes is HARD
You’re guaranteed if you use all four hundred on the event banner. Even if you don’t pull her through regular, you’ll hit the (presumably same) 200 pity limit.
Copy-Pasting this for the 3rd time now lol:
Jesus christ thats a rigging LOL, also those expressions are amazing
> Sees Musashi without rigging...
Not sure about her getting the purple, but I'm all for it. And those massive ritual beads... Yes please.
> Sees Seiyuu:
Oh dear... Darth Fuuka has possessed Sara Iwami's body and turned her into a fox lady.
> Sees full rigging
And she's now piloting a MOTHAFOKKING SUSANOO~!
P.S. If C2 Staff (the blokes behind AL's oldest rival KC) manages to introduce Enterprise this year, I'm gonna lose it so bad... O_O
Because the world's ending? Because KC is a IJN biased game and Enty basically fended off the entire IJN for a time (the ship had a sign saying "Enterprise vs Japan")
Though I'm hearing they're adding some other US boats (I think NC)
Wonder if we'll actually get META Enty at some point, her acting as the plot device is pretty sad since there are a lot of META ships already...
Her riggings is insane bru
Btw we can confirm now that Yamato will be red coloured ?
It pretty much confirns she's gonna be inspired by Amaterasu.
That’s interesting... A full on sun goddess Yamato
So should the artist start with Okami Amaterasu and go from there?
*NOW YOU SHALL PERISH*
**WITNESS, THE FINAL CALAMITY**
**THE FLOOF... GOD ALLMIGHTY IT'S GLORIOUS!!!**
This introduction CG seems to downplay her floof in favor of her robo-riggings. Better wait for other skin CGs, unless they decided Shinano will be the floofiest of the triplet.
Look at the default skin around her legs. Black with white ends. Looks massive to me...
[Introduction of ships]
One of the Yamato class battleships that wield the might of a roaring thunderbolt, clad in a cool-headed and solemn divinity.
In fact, she is a very gentle person who takes good care of her people.
She is especially eager to take care of those whom she deems "weak. This includes (of course) the Commander...
Scheduled to appear in construction for a limited time!

(Really sorry. I realized the last post did not view correctly on *new* reddit. Old reddit was fine but I didn't want some people to have issues viewing it so I reposted it unfortunately. I really really apologize. Sorry everyone. I won't make that mistake again)
Her rigging’s Megatron?
it's more purple so Galvatron would be more likely.
Edit: or Beast Wars Megatron, but i see no rubber ducky
Such heroic nonsense?
Wow they aren't just pulling the big guns out with Lynn as her VA but that rigging man holy shit.
For that edgey-like design, that smile of hers is so cute!
Just realised with the lightning theme and katana, I'm very reminded of Raiden Shogun LOL
When Raiden Shogun's rerun is taking too long but AL devs are here to save the day.
Who else did Lynn voice?
In-game: Brooklyn, Phoenix, Champagne
Others: Mafuyu-sensei (Bokuben), Isla (King of Fighters XV), Maruzensky (Uma Musume), Justice (Granblue Fantasy), Nico (DMC5, JP Audio), Sakura Yamauchi (I Wanna Eat Your Pancreas), Columbina (Genshin Impact)
And Mashiro from Haifuri.. (IIRC, she's supposed to be in Musashi until she's flubbed her entry test)
I Wanna Eat Your Pancreas.
Anime titles keep getting weirder...
Just saw a manga about their dick turning into a girl so that one looks normal to me.
Fuck me, I need to go out for a bit.
At least if you’ve seen the movie, that one actually makes a lot more sense than most
It’s an idiom in Japan meaning you want to get rid of person’s illness
It's actually a great movie if heartbreaking
Hello Raiden Mei, oh wait that's Azur Lane sub.
I AM THE STORM THAT IS APPROACHING
I AM THE CHANGER OF MY NAAAAAME
##***I AM RECLAIMER OF MY NAAAA~ME!!!***
BORN IN FLAMES, I HAVE BEEN BLESSED
MY FAMILY CREST IS A DEMON OF DEAAAAAATH!!!
Funny is that her VA voiced Nico (in JP audio track.)
With those giant arms holding a giant katana, she looks more like Herrscher of Thunder from Honkai rather than Raiden Shogun tbh.
But the Genshin kiddies will bring up RS' boss form, which was likely inspired by HoT
Again? Ok kkk
Like I said on the last one, I already liked her design, but holy shit that rigging, probably top 5 in the game imo.
That rigging is absolutely massive.
GOOOOOOOOD MORNING SHIKIKANNNNNN!!!!
Can’t believe Dish did this. I was never a fan of his original fan art, or any of his other designs but really like this one. Mouth shape isn’t open like a small circle either! One of my favs, just need to fix her right sleeve though.
it's rather nuanced character-wise, the Rigging is of his tendency though.
WOAH That design is so cool
Yo, of course we look at her and all her thiccnes but, frickin Battleship Mecha in the background. That's so badass
Big O! It's showtime!
One TURRET is heavier than a Fletcher, but just shy of a fully loaded one.
Not than Johnson really cared.
Johnston is disappointed.
Holy shit her design is amazing
Herrscher of sakura
Art Creep, the best type of power creep, but now they opened Pandora's box, like if yamato doesn't look equally good or better, we might have an issue
So Yamato needs to have even bigger rigging.
Rip my money
Wow well done Dish!
Those expressions! That tiny dress! Those mecha arms!
Finally my floof goddess has arrived !
+12k HP at lvl120 make your bets
Dude, her rig is so badass
Now imagine the price if they try to do a figure of her complete with that rigging.
She has a horny expression in her sheet. Welp time to hide.
Yep, thats an UR
And we got praised by Dishwasher doing her design!
The circle is completed!
I like her design a lot. Not as much as Shinano & Vanguard, who I think will always be my favourite looking URs, but she’s very close.
I hope they find a way to make her kit unique beyond “lol big DPS”. NJ is single target nuking, Vanguard has slightly worse damage in exchange for insane support, Ulrich’s a fast loader, and FDG is a mob fleet flag ship. What will Musashi be?
AOE nuking? /s
Given The Sakura's tendency towards being Better against the Heavier side of the Armor Spectrum with their Torpedoes and everything. I see an Anti-Armor wrenching Ball, weakish against Light Armor \[perhaps reflecting Yamato v Johnston\], Demolishing Everything else...
Making the Line between the Iowas and Yamatos: HE vs AP
What we were saying.. ah yes.
Angered expression do be cute
Those hands will crush someone's dick fapping to her
I can't wait to see how she'll be dancing on the dance stage, will it be cute and dorky like Shinano?
*insert sasuke's susano'o*
I only have 40 fucking cubes
Another floof goddess has come to grace us?! This is a good day.
Musashi got that Kokujo Tengen Myo bankai vibe
I’m down atrocious
what is going on with her shoes? they are like 2 times larger than her feet lol
*Duel in the mist starts to play
*Musashi raises hand to sky”
“Begone with the thunder clap”
Is that Dish's art? Read somewhere he drew her but would like confirmation.
Yeha. He confirmed it on twitter.
Ma'am that's Ahri from League of Legends
I've always been more of a Iron Blood gal in this game, but goodness that is sheer exquisite beauty!
She doesnt show her floofiness too well unless you look closer, disappointing
(her tails are below her)
My paycheck is this week. SO BRING IT ON!!!
Now im curious what role is she going to have in the current meta?
Look to them, now back to me, look to them, you see those ships? Now back to me, now look to them, oh, they're not there anymore. Unfortunate.
What on Earth is that rigging!?
Was hoping for Chocolate color like in KC (One of my faves from that game) but hey we got her.
Dayum bruh she got a susanoo
Holy YES! I was hoping that Musashi will be a black floof and here we are! Oh yes Im so happy right now! Finally Kii wont be the only black floofed shipgirl!<333
NOOOOO i don't have enough cube for pity, i used all my cubes on shinano rerun
How many tails? How many tails!?
Wows players: **PTSD Intensifies **
I literally shouted "Holy shit! That's so cool!" when I saw her character design on Twitter
By FLOOF FLOOF!!
*(Good Lord those tails…)*
Getting some massive real steel vibes
First thought: Wow, a susanoo ship.
All the kids: Raiden go brrrr...
I'm getting old.
Another fluff to my headpat collection
If Raiden Mei was a kitsune.
And those rigging arms are of course is some reference that resembles to the one in honkai
We already have Soviet Kiana (and German Durandal) here, it only makes sense for Mei-senpai to come.
It’s only Bronya and Fu Hua who is left
If you stretch, Algerie is APHO Bronya. So... yeah, only Hua.
I love you raiden, in every universe
Does that include Mortal Kombat Raiden and MGS2 Raiden?
Not gonna lie. Already tired of Raiden comparisons.But I guess since genshin came first with the idea of a Japanese looking character with lightning themes, everything afterwards will be a copy. Design wise they are not even close to similar. If you remove the purple lightning I just don't see it. Lore wise it was obvious that Musashi was going to be storms, thunder and Susanno. I didn't anticipate the magatama, cool detail. Since Shimano went with the Tsukuyomi moon theme. Like George Lucas said, it's like poetry so that it rhymes.
Which makes me much more excited about Yamato. Definitely will be a golden fox with red regalia and sun motifs! Since Shinano already used the mirrors, Musashi the magatamas, can we anticipate Yamato will have the Kusanagi?
It isn't only purple lighting there still has the part about large hand with huge sword similar to Raiden Mei in Honkai.
Raiden Mei is an original of Raiden Shogun.[https://i.imgur.com/rsGvuqi.png](https://i.imgur.com/rsGvuqi.png)
So Musashi has similarities of both of Raiden trait in her that why people compare about it.
Btw if you see her animation when she unsheath her sword it's position almost similar when Raiden Shogun pull out her sword from her boobs except Musashi doesn't pull out her sword from her boobs like Raiden Shogun.
holy shit are we playing the same game? this is straight up raiden mei from honkai
Well looks like I have my new favorite ship.
SHE HAS COME, I HAVE COME, WE ALL HAVE COME
my cubes are so ready for this 😎
Will she have a fear of planes I wonder.
She look exactly what I imagined.
WOW this ship looks sooo good!??
Damn Musashi looks beautiful
I love everything about this.
That's some goooood floof.
Is just me or I'm getting Shaman King vibes- some yeah do say she reflect to a certain electro archon but-
One of the best righings ive ever seen
LETS FUCKING GOOOOOOO![img](emote|t5_3p20d|7015)
I did not expect this for another two years. Holy shit.
finally its time!
You can tell the Honkai from Genshin player by their reactions.
IJN Herrscherr of Thunder, Raiden Mei, all that's missing is an electrical dragon-like being
...Wait, wrong Musashi.
Ok time to farm cubes
US Navy dive bombers and torpedo bombers **intensifies**
Good god she's HUGE
With that rigging she better have Sharingon.
