The battlecruiser that Admiral Inoue loved, it's Hiei. Even though I'm a shiny Imperial ship, I'll work my hardest. Did you know I was even the test-ship for the Yamato class? Eh? The Battle of Guadalcanal? Yes, I fought hard.


Japanese battleship Hiei


        Hiei (比叡) was a warship of the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War I and World War II. Designed by British naval architect George Thurston, she was the second launched of four Kongō-class battlecruisers, among the most heavily armed ships in any navy when built. Laid down in 1911 at the Yokosuka Naval Arsenal, Hiei was formally commissioned in 1914. She patrolled off the Chinese coast on several occasions during World War I, and helped with rescue efforts following the 1923 Great Kantō earthquake.

        Starting in 1929, Hiei was converted to a gunnery training ship to avoid being scrapped under the terms of the Washington Naval Treaty. She served as Emperor Hirohito's transport in the mid-1930s. Starting in 1937, she underwent a full-scale reconstruction that completely rebuilt her superstructure, upgraded her powerplant, and equipped her with launch catapults for floatplanes. Now fast enough to accompany Japan's growing fleet of aircraft carriers, she was reclassified as a fast battleship. On the eve of the US entry into World War II, she sailed as part of Vice-Admiral Chuichi Nagumo's Combined Fleet, escorting the six carriers that attacked Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941.

        As part of the Third Battleship Division, Hiei participated in many of the Imperial Japanese Navy's early actions in 1942, providing support for the invasion of the Dutch East Indies as well as the Indian Ocean raid of April 1942. During the Battle of Midway, she sailed in the Invasion Force under Admiral Nobutake Kondō, before being redeployed to the Solomon Islands during the Battle of Guadalcanal. She escorted Japanese carrier forces during the battles of the Eastern Solomons and Santa Cruz Islands, before sailing as part of a bombardment force under Admiral Kondō during the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal. On the evening of 13 November 1942, Hiei engaged American cruisers and destroyers alongside her sister ship Kirishima. After inflicting heavy damage on American cruisers and destroyers, Hiei was crippled by enemy vessels. Subjected to continuous air attack, she sank on the evening of 14 November 1942.


Trivia


  • Hiei is the only one of the Kongou sisters having to have her superstructure mast reconstructed into a similar prototype that might be used on the Yamato class.  That might have symbolized her "tough" personality.
  • Named after Mount Hiei
  • Received her Kai Ni on 20/11/2013
  • Sunk following the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal on November 14, 1942; the first IJN battleship ever to be lost in WWII.
  • Wreck possibly found by Dr. Robert Ballard in 1993. There is discussion whether or not the wreck is either her or Kirishima...
  • She appeared in the first Kancolle Drama CD, also dubbed One Nao show, along with other characters in a mini skit. She also appeared in the anime with Kongou, Haruna and Kirishima.

Well Kongou is the best girl for her voice alone, I heard her in the hall and I was like "I hear Nao Touyama!!".
I love Nao Touyama, her voice is amazing, and a lot of her characters say desu which is great.
I will watch Kantai Collection at some point for her voice alone.

Fun fact: Nao Tōyama voiced all 4 Kongou sisters.  She also voiced two other characters in the show: Atago and Takao.  I'm a fan of her as well.
