|“||First ship of the Shiratsuyu-class destroyers, 'Shiratsuyu'!. Yes, the first ship!||„|
Shiratsuyu (白露 ”White Dew”?) was the lead ship of ten Shiratsuyu-class destroyers, and first of six to be built for the Imperial Japanese Navy under the Circle One Program (Maru Ichi Keikaku).
Wears a black serafuku shared with the first four ship girls of her class. She has a short, brown hair with a headband as well as orange-brown eyes.
She's a cheerful girl who wants to excel at everything. She always considers herself as the First Ship.
- Her constant references to "Number 1!" possibly refer to the fact that she was supposed to be the seventh ship of the Hatsuharu class, but due to extensive modifications instead got to be the lead ship of her own class, or she was supposed to belong to the IJN 1st Fleet 1st Destroyer Squadron (or Torpedo Squadron) and she was the first of ten Shiratsuyu-class destroyers.
- Collision with tanker Seikyo Maru, 15 June 1944 in the Philippine Sea (09°09′N 126°51′E)
- Her name means "White dew".
