The day after Operation FS, the Secretary Ship with her aide discuss the prior engagement & plan for the next one in the southwest sea zone.

Elsewhere, destroyer classes for the day have been ineffectual with Kisaragi's loss. Everyone is treading delicately around Mutsuki, whom is the only one acting normal. However, Shimakaze & Fubuki have been summoned for another mission.

Upon learning they've been temporarily assigned with Kongou's fleet, Fubuki begins another idolization session. Unfortunately, the ideal shatters as Kongou charges in & proceeds to be herself, along with the rest of the Kongou class.

The next day, before the mission can begin, a hunt for Shimakaze has to be undertaken as she's quite free-spirited. The first attempt is music, the second attempt is sweetness, & the third attempt is baiting, but the method that draws her is food.

The mission is finally underway & the battleships duke it out while the destroyers skirmish. However, a Ru-Class targets Fubuki, yet before one of the shells hit, Kongou begs to differ. The others buy time for Kongou to console Fubuki's heart & dispel the squall. Kongou & Shimakaze wrap things up.

Mutsuki, whom has been taking Kisaragi's loss poorly, is finally able to grieve with Fubuki utilizing what Kongou has shown her - a hug.

Off-duty kanmusu can be quite different from their on-duty selves

A kanmusu's mental state affects buoyancy

Abyssal shells are shown as cracked spheres

These Abyssals are quite passive - no evasive maneuvers during the torpedo attacks, & blandly tanking shots
