Library 青葉です。トラック諸島方面へ進出して、中部太平洋作戦を支えました。
I'm Aoba. Advancing into the Truk Islands area, I supported the Pacific Front.
With a war correspondent on board, the staff also had reporting as part of their job. At my last moment, I was at Kure.
Even without fuel, I did my best!
Aoba was by sunk by enemy aircraft while moored at Kure Naval Yards. Immobile due to irreparable damage and lack of fuel, she fought as an immobile AA turret till the end.
Secretary 1 なになに?なんの話ですか? Whatwhat? Got a story?
Secretary 2 司令官、青葉、見ちゃいました! Commander, I saw it!
Secretary 3 気になるんですか?いい情報ありますよ? Are you interested? I've got some good news, you know?
Secretary Married きょーしゅくです! Sorry to trouble you!
Wedding 青葉、ホントは敵じゃなくて司令官だけ見ていたいんだけどなあ …な、なんてねっ! Aoba, all she really wants to do is look at the Commander rather than the enemy… J-just kidding!
Looking At Scores 連絡みたい、なんだろーなんだろー! Some news? What is it, what is iiiit?

Equipment 3 恐縮です! How kind of you!
 ⇧ shared with expedition selection, resource collection, instant repair and development
Supply よーし、もっと働けます。 Okay! I can work better now!
Docking Minor 青葉、じっとしてられないな。 I just can't keep still...
Docking Major ちょおっと深入りしすぎたようです。 I seem to have gotten too deeply in the matter.
Docking Complete 修理の完了した船があるみたいよ♪ It looks like someone's repairs are completed♪
Construction 情報によると、新しい船が進水したみたいですよ? According to the data, there seems to be a new ship launching, yeah?
Returning From Sortie 艦隊が帰投しますね、インタビューする? The fleet's back, could I have an interview?
Starting A Sortie 第一遊撃部隊、出撃ですね 1st Expeditionary Fleet, sallying forth! Aoba was part of the 1st Exp. Fleet from Dec '43.
Battle Start よく見えますねぇ。 Take a goood look.
Attack 敵はまだこちらに気付いてないよ! The enemy still hasn't noticed us!
 ⇧ shared with day/night special attacks, support expedition team arrival
Night Battle さー、青葉も追撃しちゃうぞ! Alright! I'm gonna pursue too!
Night Attack 索敵も砲撃も雷撃も青葉にお任せ! Searching, barrages, torpedoes - leave them all to me!
MVP お役に立てて嬉しいです、また青葉をよろしくね。 Happy to be of service, thanks again.
Minor Damage 1 しまった! Crap!
Minor Damage 2 くぅっ! F-ff..
Major Damage 火力が…火力がちょこっと足りないのかしら… Firepower... Is firepower just not enough, I wonder...
Sunk 沈むのは・・・呉鎮守府でって・・決めてたのになぁ・・・・・・ Sunk, huh... I wanted to sink at Kure....

  • Aoba wears a serafuku with a yellow neckerchief, blue shorts, black stockings and obscured shoes. She has pink hair tied into a ponytail, secured by a bluish hair tie. In recent promotional material for Kancolle Arcade, Aoba's serafuku bares her midriff and is seen wearing black shoes.


  • In the fandom, she's depicted as being a curious and nosy reporter, always snooping around for the next scoop.


  • Unno Juza, a novelist considered the father of Japanese sci-fi, was aboard Aoba during WWII. Referring to this, in-game Aoba always mentions collecting material (news, info, gossip) for her work.
  • The Aoba class was inspired from the Furutaka class. They retained a very similar hull design and torpedo tubes placement ; however, Aoba was mounted with 3 double 203mm turrets, while Furutaka had 6 single 200mm which was later upgraded to 3 double 203mm turrets.
  • During the Battle of Cape Esperance, it was reported that Aoba considered the US fleet to be a Japanese fleet undergoing landing operations nearby, and signaled "I AM AOBA" toward the US fleet repeatedly using her signal lamp.
    • Fubuki, who was closest to the US fleet, and Furutaka, who turned on her own search light to lure the enemy in an attempt to allow Aoba to retreat, were sunk in this battle.
    • Some sources stated that she signaled "WHO (are you), WHO" repeatedly instead.
  • Sunk July 28, 1945 by USN and USAAF aircraft at Kure, Hiroshima 34°14′N132°30′E.
