we all know  that  good part of the NA playerbase don't like those "big eyed","totally innacurate","don't belong in my historical combat simulator","creepy cartoons", anime ships.

well my friends,i'm here to tell you that these kind of drawings are pretty much ww2 material.

japanese battleship hyuuga(some people say it's hinata)

japanese battleship haruna

mogami class cruiser "kumano"

basically,the japanese had a different kind of "pin up" art,the allies  had their 2d girls too

TLDR this is not a new thing from those kids with their smartphones and weird rock & roll,it's very old.

Well, I'm not very surprised. One thing I do know about the Japanese is that they have some cultural beliefs about inanimate objects being capable of having 'souls'. I'm simplifying a bit, but it's not even uncommon among western cultures either, take something like Excalibur, or the piece of sacred oak in the Argo for instance, let alone the Greek tradition of the figurehead. Heck I even tend to name some of my stuff, although many of the examples I can list are from after I started playing this game, so some names might be a bit familiar. My computer is Yamato (because it's the most powerful computer anyone in my immediate family owns), my current phone is Mutsu, my old phone was Amagi, my car is Fubuki, heck I even gave my dad's latest car a name as a way of annoying him, partly based on it being bright red (in a family of mostly white or blue cars traditionally) and being a bit of what I considered a reckless overspending, it got the moniker, 'Errant Venture' and yes that is in fact a Star Wars Expanded Universe reference for any that might recognize the name.

When I played, I named my viola "Elise", my first and current car is named "Steph", my AR-180B is "Selena", my Carcano Type I is "Luna", my Sig Sauer P225-A1 is "Reinhild", and my PC (which has a lot of green glow) is "Aoba".

I guess she would be a Myoko or Takao (Atago) cruiser, based on her forward turrets?

All my inanimate objects go by the name of Steve Martin's dog in The Jerk.

And going by the smoke puffs in the aft I'm guessing last nights dinner was Beans, Cabbage, and Sauerkraut.

A 180B, huh? Nice, just been admiring a relative's shiny new BRN-180, not quite the same and missing much of the retro appeal, but still a nice piece of work. Hopefully they might start making a version in slightly more retro trim.

wanted a Howa AR-180, but those go for $1.5k, and I'm not shelling out that much money for a rifle. LOL
