Akashi is a repair vessel under Kongou's command and had been helping her set up the Flagship equipment.

Repair vessel Akashi

Akashi is the reincarnation of WWII IJN repair vessel Akashi. She is the only vessel of her class, thus has no sisters.

Since Akashi had made her appearance only on black-and-white manga pages, we do not know what is the color scheme of her hull.

Being a dedicated repair vessel, Akashi is quite lacking when it comes to armament. Her 'prototype' had only 16 guns total and the "Fleet of Fog" Akashi seems to have just as many. As for her defenses, it is presumed that since she has a Mental Model, she also has Wave-Force armor, however, there is no way to estimate how powerful her armor is.

Mental Model

Akashi has a single Mental Model, who has an appearance of a preteen girl with black hair made into four tails reaching her shoulders. She has a hair-clip in her hair above her right eye.

Her clothes are those of a welder, complete with a mask which - when not covering her face - is hung on the right side of her belt.

Due to being present on just a single page, we do not know anything about her personality or interests, however it seems that Akashi is very loyal to her flagship, Kongou.


Akashi has been helping the flagship of the First Oriental Fleet Kongou set up her Flagship equipment. Once it was deployed, Kongou had ordered her to fall back into safe zone.

After Kongou was sunk by the I-401, she determines the battlefield to be safe (with almost all the Fog's fleet sunk and the I-401 damaged) and moves to retrieve Kongou's core.



  • For a yet to be explained reason, Akashi's sigil was identical to the one of destroyer Vampire. This was changed however in her next appearance at Hashirajima Naval Base where it was changed to half a gear around a dot.
