|Introduction||秋月型駆逐艦、その四番艦、初月だ。お前が提督か？いいだろう。僕が行こう。||I'm the fourth ship of the Akizuki-class destroyers, Hatsuzuki. Are you the Admiral? Very well, I'll march on.|
|Kai||秋月型防空駆逐艦、四番艦初月だ。お前も行くのか？ならば僕がお前を守る。約束だ！||Fourth ship of the Akizuki-class Air Defense Destroyers, Hatsuzuki here. Are you fighting on as well? Then I shall protect you. That's a promise!|
|Fourth ship of the Akizuki-class anti-air destroyers, Hatsuzuki.|
I was born in Maizuru. My sisters and I formed the 61st Destroyer Division that fought in the Marianas and Leyte.
In anti-air battles, I covered the rescue of aircraft carriers. Acting as a part of the fleet's rear guard, I faced the enemy.
|She participated in efforts to rescue the crew of Taihou, Zuikaku & Zuihou.|

- She has essentially the same gear as her elder sisters, including her own pair of Chou-10cm-hou-chan. She wears the same basic uniform except with slight different tones of grey and a black neckerchief. Under her uniform appears to be a black full-body bodysuit fully covering her arms and legs. She doesn't wear the gloves as her bodysuit also covers her hands. Her fire director is attached to her right wrist.
- She has short brown hair with strands tied to look like horns along with grayish yellow eyes.
- Her hourly lines are rife with talk about eating only barley rice and canned meat, as well as amazement that other foods even exist, making her canonically fall solidly "Feeding the Ducks" joke.
- She's also known by fandom as "hatsuduki" (pronounced as Hatsu"ducky" or Hatsu"dookey") due to the pun and romanization of Nihon-shiki of her name .
- Winter 2016 Event E-2 Clear Reward.
- Akizuki-class ships have the following exclusive AACI types:
- Type 1: Two High Angle mounts () + RADAR (): +7 fixed bonus per slot. This is the second strongest AACI in the game.
- Type 2: High Angle mount () + RADAR (): +6 bonus. The third strongest AACI, it can be used together with Night Battle equipment, such as Searchlight.
- Type 3: Two High Angle mounts (): +4 bonus.
- All those types, however, have the lowest priority.
- When there are multiple ships with AACI in your fleet, for each of those ships the game checks whether it triggers AACI until one of them does. However, the order in which they are checked depends on the AACI type (i.e., priority = type). Akizuki-class exclusive AACI (of any type) has the lowest priority, so for it to even have a chance to trigger, all other ships' AACI have to fail. Therefore, having another AACI ship in your fleet can be counter productive if its AACI is weaker (e.g. non-Akizuki-class Destroyer (DD)), as it will lower the chance of Akizuki-class Destroyer (DD)'s stronger AACI from happening. The only ship that has stronger AACI is Maya Kai Ni (+8 bonus), she or another Akizuki-class Destroyer (DD) can be freely used as a second AACI ship in the fleet (another option is a battleship (BB) exclusive +6 bonus setup).
- The AACI trigger rate depends on ship's AA ())value, that is, in theory, Akizuki Kai (116 AA ) will perform AACI more often than Teruzuki Kai (114 AA ), while Teruzuki Kai will perform it more often than Hatsuzuki Kai (110 AA ). However, the difference is thought to be small (one up to few %).
- Akizuki-class exclusive AACI are the only AACI types that can use both Surface and Air RADAR () (Air RADAR () are preferred due to their additional AA () value). Non-Akizuki-class Destroyer (DD) can use 10cm Twin High-angle Gun Mount + Anti-Aircraft Fire Director and a Surface RADAR () without risking to override Akizuki-class AACI.
- Her name means "First Moon".
- Along with Shimakaze, Amatsukaze, Akizuki,Teruzuki and Suzutsuki, she is one of 6 destroyers with "animated turrets".
- Like Z1, Z3, Amatsukaze, Akizuki, and Teruzuki, she has 3 slots from the beginning. Other DDs have only 2 slots before remodeling.
- Attached to Ozawa's Northern Force in the Battle of Cape Engano, she covered the rescue of survivors from Zuihou and Zuikaku by Kuwa and Wakatsuki on the evening of 25 October, 1944. At 1840, they encountered a detachment of Halsey's TF.34 comprising 4 cruisers (USS New Orleans, Wichita, Santa Fe and Mobile) with at least 9 destroyers. Hatsuzuki single-handedly faced off against this overwhelming force for the next two hours, eventually exploding and sinking at 2059 (at 20-24 N, 126-20 E). Her sacrifice enabled the escape of Isuzu, Wakatsuki and Kuwa. The only survivors of her crew were 8 men in a boat with 17 Zuikaku crewmen who made their way to Luzon by 14 November, having been providentially cast off when Hatsuzuki got underway to engage the enemy. Adding the survivors from the Zuihou, it would make around 1500 crewmen saved (plus the crew from the rescuing ships). For reference, an Akizuki-class destroyer could hold 300 men aboard.
- In her damaged CG, you can see her look over her shoulder at a little boat. It is possible that is the boat with the 25 survivors in it.
- Wears same Hachimaki as Akizuki, which reads as "61st Destroyer Division".
