I'm Kiso. I'll bestow upon you the absolute best victory.
~ Kiso

Kiso was the fifth and last of the five Kuma-class light cruisers, which served with the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War II. She was named after the Kiso River in central Honshū, Japan.


The Kuma-class (sans Kitakami and Ooi) wears a white and green serafuku with shorts for Kuma and Tama and a skirt for Kiso.

Kiso herself has short dark blue hair, wears an eyepatch over her right eye and wears a pauldron on her right shoulder. She also wears a hat.

In her Kai-2 form, she gains a cape and a cutlass as well as a more ornate eyepatch and four quintuple torpedo launchers. Getting her damaged reveals that her right eye is yellow instead of green (probably a fake as well).


Kiso doesn't use a verbal tic herself but she is often coerced by her elder sisters to use one ("I am Kiso... -kiso!"). She is often paired with Tenryuu due to their similar personalities and their eyepatches. Aside of the eyepatch, she is the spitting image of a certain capitain. Considering that her artist, UGUME, has drawn Murasa in the past, this might not be a coincidence. In her Kai-2 form, she also resembles yet another captain.


  • Bears an uncanny ressemblance to Minamitsu Murasa from Touhou Project.
  • After being remodeled into torpedo cruisers, Kiso, Kitakami, and Ooi can utilize the use of Type A Kou-hyouteki to fire opening torpedoes before shelling phase.
  • Sunk by USN aircraft off Cavite, Philippines 14°35′N 120°50′E.
