Samidare (五月雨 ”Early Summer Rain”?) was the sixth of ten Shiratsuyu-class destroyers, built for the Imperial Japanese Navy under the Circle One Program (Maru Ichi Keikaku).
Samidare has very long blue hair with a gradient (lighter at the bottom) that notably spirals towards the bottom. She also has swept bangs and very large blue eyes.
She wears a special sleeveless shirt version of a serafuku with a white skirt unique to her and her younger sister, Suzukaze. She also wears elbow gloves and black thighhighs to create a zettai ryouiki.
Her battle kit includes two pistol-like double-barreled cannon turrets, and an oversized backpack-like torpedo launcher.
She's a clumsy girl.
- Her name refers to ”梅雨”, which is a rainy season which happens around the end of spring and early summer. During this time it is humid and the sky is often overcast. It is the subject of many artistic works such as songs, poetry, and paintings in East Asia, specifically Japan, Korea and China.
- Sunk, 26 August 1944 at Palau (08°10′N 134°38′E).
