|Introduction||特型駆逐艦「曙」よ。って、こっち見んな！このクソ提督！||Special-type destroyer, 'Akebono'. Hey! Don't look at me, you shitty Admiral!|
|Special-type destroyer number 18, 8th of the Ayanami-class, Akebono.|
I'm not a sumo wrestler. Remember that.
I participated in the first naval air battle, the Coral Sea!
But, I'm a bit uneasy around subs...
|Akebono is also the name of a famous 90s sumo wrestler.|

- The flower on her head is the wild spring chrysanthemum (都忘れ; miyakowasure), which in the flower language means 'the sadness of parting,' 'a short moratorium,' & 'until the day we meet again'.
- This kind of chrysanthemum is rather unique, as the other subgenus of it tend to hold more positive meanings, such as 'love' and 'happiness'.
- The chrysanthemum is well-celebrated in Japan, while also being the symbol of the Emperor and the Emperor's family.
- For many, Akebono is an odd ship. She's very verbally abusive, and unlike Michishio or Kasumi who have gentler sides in contrast to their harsh tongues, Akebono never really seems to be appreciative of the admiral's (your) actions. However, her history seems to be a basis for this.
- To begin with, Akebono doesn't stand out favorably in history. Unlike her sister-ship Ushio who is considered as the 'ship of fortune,' Akebono is taken as the 'ship of misfortune'. Look below for more details.
|1. Battle of the Coral Seas|
Akebono was assigned to escort Zuikaku while Ushio was assigned to Shoukaku. In the middle of the mission, Ushio requested to switch with Akebono, to which Akebono agreed. However, American bombers heavily damaged Shoukaku, yet Zuikaku got away without a single scratch. As a result, Ushio & Zuikaku were considered the lucky ships from this point on while Akebono & Shoukaku received the opposite. Similarly, rather than reprimanding Ushio, Akebono was reprimanded and blamed for Shoukaku's injuries. Akebono was then reassigned from the front lines to the rear.
This is reflected in Secretary(3) If you don't like me, why don't you just reassign me?.
This is reflected in her Library Intro, ....But, I'm a bit uneasy around subs...., as she not only lost her sister to them, but failed as an escort.
Naturally, Akebono was heavily damaged as well & Ushio towed her into the dock for repairs. However a week later, the Americans launched another air strike. Akebono was critically hit, with her cannons, engines, and torpedoes all but destroyed. She sank (upright in shallow waters) while being observed by Ushio nearby.
- In the Light Novel Kagerou, Setting Sail!:
Her personality is formed by PTSD due to the failure to protect transport ships in her first expedition as a fleet girl, together with Ushio, from an Abyssal attack, along with accompanying memories succeeded from the warship Akebono.
Despite her problematic character, Akebono is noted to be a talented and highly skilled fleet girl. When DesDiv 14 was formed, she was of the more combatworthy trio (which also included Kagerou and Arare) and displayed high proficiency in all areas.
- Akebono means daybreak.
- Her name was first carried by the fourth ship of the Ikazuchi class in 1898. The Ikazuchi class were the first Torpedo Boat Destroyers of Japan.
- Inherited twice in the newer JMSDF, the most recent by the newer DD-108, a Murasame-class destroyer, along with the newer Ikazuchi and Inazuma.
- Sunk by an air raid on November 14th, 1944 at Manila Bay, Philippines (14°35′N 120°55′E). The wreckage was cleared 11 years later, along with 6 other ships.
