  1. In this thread I will post on the days that famous ships sank, which may help less informed captains to prepare and save their belles and the sailors on them. I believe there is no better start for it than today. Today marks the anniversary of the death of the Imperial Japanese Navy. On April 7th 1945, TF 58 launched 386 aircraft to intercept Operation Ten-Go. It was an overwhelming success. For the loss of 10 aircraft and 12 aviators, they sank the light cruiser Yahagi, the destroyers Isokaze, Hamakaze, Asashimo, and Kasumi (scuttled), and most famously, the Yamato. However, the Yamato would not go quietly. When she sank, one of her forward magazines detonated, resulting in an explosion that could reportedly be heard and seen in Kagoshima nearly 200 miles away. The smoke cloud reached over 6km into the air. This was the last major Japanese naval operation in the Pacific of WWII, and with it the Imperial Japanese Navy died. Also sunk on this day was the Nagara class Cruiser Isuzu, who was torpedoed in in the Java sea, and U-1195, a type VIIc U-boat who was sunk by depth charges in the English Channel. In 1943, USS Aaron Ward was bombed and sunk in Ironbottom sound, and U-644 was torpedoed and sunk west of Narvik. In 1944, U-856 was sunk by a combination of Depth charges, shelling, and ramming in the Atlantic Ocean. Today's deaths: Yahagi Isokaze Hamakaze Asashimo Kasumi Yamato Isuzu U-1195 Aaron Ward U-644 U-856

  3. That's one of the several reasons I don't normally list the cargo ships.
  4. I have to agree with Option 2. Many great feuds have ended with a greater feast. I must chide our dear Captain for being so hesitant to engage Pola. She's adorable and deserves all the attention I can grant her. I show no fear in the face of excessive cuteness.
  5. Today's update is on the question posed by a certain "Ninjapacman" about the theories on Morgana. Whoever this fellow is, he certainly has excellent taste in questions, and the presenters did a fine job of making common theories sound very interesting. Read the update here: Update 90: On Morgana Myths

I was going to wait until we got to the place I left off last year, and restart it from there, but who knows, I'd have probably forgotten! Anyways, I'll try to pick these up when I can. I can't have you doing all the work.
  8. ペーパルがありますか? かんたんです。
  9. Thanks for reviving this, Panay! If I manage to wake up early tomorrow, I’ll get the next one!
  10. That’s a cute velasco. Maybe I should get a VB commission from her too.
  11. I happen to find them all adorable, but special mentions go to the Tree, the toy soldier, and the reindeer.
  12. HOHOHO YES. I am forever in your debt David. Christmas Spee is glorious.
  13. Thanks for a solid answer on that one. That's all I was looking for!
  14. In which case the situation I provided last time I asked still applies. She was Yavuz some time before Mississippi was commissioned, so why would Mississippi call her Goeben? Wouldn't Mississippi only have ever known her as Yavuz?
  15. Oh, don't get me wrong. I'm more than happy that she was presented as German, and she certainly did her share of the work. She's a wonderful belle. I'm just curious about the inexplicable name change.
  16. I believe I am going to vote option 3. The captain needs to help out somehow, of course. Also, I assume that because she's not redacted, this Goeben is the same as our Yavuz, so I wonder why in the previous updates she was known as Yavuz, and now in the holiday updates she's returned to her Imperial German name. I asked this last time, but don't believe I got a response. Is it a mistake on the part of the writers?
  17. Mahan looks good in plaid
  18. そのマハンはすごく綺麗と思います。色は明るくて、かわいいですね。
  19. I wonder if the third Christmas update includes a present for us in the form of a detailed update...
  20. Nope, I just wanted sinterklaas Canarias, and figured since Leningrad asked, I’d let her have some too.
  21. I made Super Original Super good fanart of Sinterklaas Canarias for Leningrad.
  22. I'm not going to Comiket 93, so I probably won't be able to read that doujin. I'm somewhat disappointed about that.
  23. All you can do seems to be more than enough. Keep it up!
  24. While I'd love to agree with you, that would mean Graf Spee, and more than a couple other ships should also have grey hair. Hate to break it to ya, but Enterprise was one of many ships in the war, not to mention history that held that moniker.
  25. There's a holiday per season. Easter is spring/bunny belles. Summer is Bikini belles. Fall is Halloween belles. And winter is Christmas belles.
