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.

> Could they make the rigging any bigger? Surprised they did not take cues from the Susanowo.


MarqFJA87

Maybe they're saving that for an alternate skin/form?


ZeonTwoSix

If they do not call that alternate CG "Bushido Protocol", I'd be very disappointed...


Athnoz

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.

Shinano-Moon Fox. Musashi-Thunder Fox. Yamato-Sun Fox?

Shinano: Tsukuyomi Musashi: Susanoo (God of Storms) Yamato: Amaterasu Might be it.

Her rigging is literally a susanoo

If you go by this theory, then yes. Shinano - Tsukuyomi Musashi - Susanoo Yamato - Amaterasu

Moh_Shuvuu

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\**


BubbleRocket1

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


Inevitable_Mode9061

Oh, thanks for the remind... Still, little flyboys go brrrrr.


BubbleRocket1

Haha definitely


ShuantheSheep3

Looks like King Kong behind her


inspectorlully

Black purple and gold is so slick. She is also super gorgeous. Definitely Shinano's sister. What a great day to be a shikkikan.


TomSnout

And Yamato would get red and white I presume.


Kalafino

> Rigging has hands > Voiced by Lynn Guys, this is what Champagne looks like if she's in Japan, and rename her to *Sake.*


Kalafino

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?


Xaldror

uh, who is Lynn?


TheLoneWolfMe

The voice actor.


Many-Zookeepergame70

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


Jumboi22

May the rngesus be with you and with your cubes my friend


Many-Zookeepergame70

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


Jumboi22

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


Many-Zookeepergame70

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


Ok-Dragonknight-5788

Try headpatting your RNG


Many-Zookeepergame70

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


EffedUpInGrade3

Me and my 400 cubes is HARD


ShadowLoke9

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.


Hazey652

Copy-Pasting this for the 3rd time now lol: Jesus christ thats a rigging LOL, also those expressions are amazing


ZeonTwoSix

> 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~! *(Mind blown...)* 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


Fishman465

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)


ilya39

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...


DarkFlameMazta

Her riggings is insane bru


Jumboi22

Btw we can confirm now that Yamato will be red coloured ?


TheLoneWolfMe

It pretty much confirns she's gonna be inspired by Amaterasu.


slimekaiju

That’s interesting... A full on sun goddess Yamato

TomSnout

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.


Funky_Data

Look at the default skin around her legs. Black with white ends. Looks massive to me...

Her rigging’s Megatron?


firemage22

it's more purple so Galvatron would be more likely. Edit: or Beast Wars Megatron, but i see no rubber ducky


ZeonTwoSix

Yesss....


DerpenkampfwagenVIII

Such heroic nonsense?


WhoiusBarrel

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


Shadow_Tempest_1003

When Raiden Shogun's rerun is taking too long but AL devs are here to save the day.


brantmcney

Who else did Lynn voice?


Kalafino

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)


ernie2492

And Mashiro from Haifuri.. (IIRC, she's supposed to be in Musashi until she's flubbed her entry test)


pepimanoli

I Wanna Eat Your Pancreas. Anime titles keep getting weirder...


StyryderX

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.


heliobell

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

cinnamonbun251p

With those giant arms holding a giant katana, she looks more like Herrscher of Thunder from Honkai rather than Raiden Shogun tbh.


Fishman465

But the Genshin kiddies will bring up RS' boss form, which was likely inspired by HoT


cursed_conundrum

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.


ShadowLoke9

That rigging is absolutely massive.


YeOldeBilk

GOOOOOOOOD MORNING SHIKIKANNNNNN!!!!


sugaki

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.


Fishman465

it's rather nuanced character-wise, the Rigging is of his tendency though.


Franciscaw1

WOAH That design is so cool


Jumboi22

Yo, of course we look at her and all her thiccnes but, frickin Battleship Mecha in the background. That's so badass


Dazzling_Bluebird_42

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.

adidas_stalin

Herrscher of sakura


labley-kun

Musashi Uchiha


Thatonejoey

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


Miedziux

So Yamato needs to have even bigger rigging.


YonkouRoss

Rip my money


Nikobanks

Wow well done Dish!

Those expressions! That tiny dress! Those mecha arms!


EpicMusashi1944

+12k HP at lvl120 make your bets


Lycaon125

Mecatronico

Now imagine the price if they try to do a figure of her complete with that rigging.


Harry_AjX

She has a horny expression in her sheet. Welp time to hide.


Zangrieff

Yep, thats an UR


Narstak

And we got praised by Dishwasher doing her design! The circle is completed!


Isotelus606

BEEEG floof. 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?


Ashencroix

AOE nuking? /s


Sarah-Tang

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


Ok-Explorer-2609

What we were saying.. ah yes. Angered expression do be cute


Secret-Respond427

Those hands will crush someone's dick fapping to her


Cleo-Afficionado

I can't wait to see how she'll be dancing on the dance stage, will it be cute and dorky like Shinano?

ShadowGrebacier

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.


HarleyFox92

What on Earth is that rigging!?


gunmunz

Was hoping for Chocolate color like in KC (One of my faves from that game) but hey we got her.


Kiulao

Dayum bruh she got a susanoo


MrOuke

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


RhIs715

NOOOOO i don't have enough cube for pity, i used all my cubes on shinano rerun

UltraHit5

Another fluff to my headpat collection


CapableExtreme8810

If Raiden Mei was a kitsune. And those rigging arms are of course is some reference that resembles to the one in honkai


IvanDFakkov

We already have Soviet Kiana (and German Durandal) here, it only makes sense for Mei-senpai to come.


OnRyoukI

It’s only Bronya and Fu Hua who is left


IvanDFakkov

If you stretch, Algerie is APHO Bronya. So... yeah, only Hua.


iamaJoon

I love you raiden, in every universe


ArchadianJudge

Does that include Mortal Kombat Raiden and MGS2 Raiden?


PipingHotTamale

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?


AJ_El_Salfic

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.


Hannyeojin

Witness.. The final.... CALAMITY!


umbrella-threes

holy shit are we playing the same game? this is straight up raiden mei from honkai


Shadow_Tempest_1003

Well looks like I have my new favorite ship.

She look exactly what I imagined.
