|“||Hello, it's Nenohi. I hope my name wasn't hard to read, yes?||„|
Nenohi (子日 ”New Year Day”?) was the second of six Hatsuharu-class destroyers, built for the Imperial Japanese Navy under the Circle One Program (Maru Ichi Keikaku). Three were laid down in JFY 1931 and the next three in JFY 1933. The remaining six ships in the plan were built as the Shiratsuyu class.
She wears a one-piece sailor dress over a bodysuit cut to t-shirt and bike shorts length (essentially the negative of Hatsuharu's gloves and thighhighs). Her hands are bandaged and she holds her cannons from the inside like arm cannons. She has long pink hair in a single braid. She has ear-like headgear hovering over the sides of her head. Her gear usually glows a light blue or cyan.
A very energetic girl, she tends to use her name in a joke. In fact, it's her single gag, characteristic catchphrase and verbal tic in one. ("What day is today? Nenohi/New Year's Day!")
- Sunk in action, July 5, 1942 southeast of Attu Island, Alaska (52°15′N 173°51′E).
- Her name means "New Year's Day".
