Composition (編成) is a main menu function that appears in the main homeport screen in the top part of the center area of the screen. The main function of this menu option is to allow the player to organize their fleet by assigning then, removing them, replace them, arrange them, view their stats or even record and set up preset made fleets you create.

The following functions appear in the composition menu:

  • Change - Allows you to assign, remove, change kanmusu within the fleet composition
  • Details - Allows you to view the stats of a kanmusu
  • Fleet's Name - displays the name of the Fleet (can be changed if so desire)
  • Provisions - Allows you to use special item such as Mamiya and Irako to provide a quick moral boost
  • Removal all but Flagship - Automatically remove all kanmusu in fleet except the flagship (first ship)
  • Record Composition - Allows you to record a fleet composition you created
  • Deploy Composition - Allows you to automatically deploy a fleet that you previously recorded.

More details on how each of these function work will be explained further below.

Changing Kanmusu in Compositions

Adding and Changing Kanmusu from Fleet Composition

To add or change a kanmusu in your fleet simply press the change (変更) button in your fleet which will then bring up a list. From there you can view the list of the kanmusu you own and select the kanmusu you wish to put in your fleet composition. You can view the list of kanmusu you own in a variety of orderly arrangement by selecting the top right blue icon corner below the resources. The following orders are shown:

  • Level - Arranges Kanmusu based upon level going from the highest level all the way to the lowest level
  • Ship Type- Arranges Kanmusu arranged based upon ship types
  • New - Arranges Kanmusu based on the newest dropped kanmusu to your oldest owned kanmusu
  • Damaged - Arranges kanmusu based upon how much damage they've taken from the most damaged to the least damaged

Once you have decided on a kanmusus to chose for your fleet, click on her name and her icon and a short description of her stats will appear on the screen. If you want to confirm your choice press the change (変更) button in the bottom of the corner. From that point on, this kanmusu will be assigned to your fleet.

Removing Kanmusu from Fleet Composition

To remove a kanmusu from your composition, there is one of two way this can be achieved:

To remove a single kanmusu all you need to do is select the kanmusu you want to change out and press the change (変更) button. Once in the menu where you select your kanmusu for your composition, press Undo (はずす) in the top left corner of the kanmusu select section to remove the kanmusu from your fleet.

You can also remove the flagship from the fleet this way too but note that the Flagship of fleet 1 (your secretary kanmusu) is always required to be present and cannot be removed

Clicking and dragging kanmusu guide. The above example shows how to move a kanmusu from position 2 to the flagship position.

The second way is to select the "Remove All but Flagship" button located between the Provisions and Fleet Name button. This will removal all ships from the fleet from the flagship in the fleet.

Clicking and Dragging Kanmusu around in Fleet Composition

Switching Kanmusu can be done the same way as one can change a fleet, but there is one other unique feature which will allow you to arrange your ships around in a quicker way. To quickly change a kanmusu around the fleet, you need to click and hold onto the picture of the kanmusu. Once you do, you can click and drag that kanmusu around in your fleet composition and place her in one of the other composition spots in the same fleet. This will switch the ships between their spots in the composition quickly to save time.

You can also use this same method to remove ships from your composition by clicking and dragging the kanmusu's picture off of your fleet composition page.

Locking Ship

Locking ships is an important mechanic in the game used to lock a kanmusu to prevent you from accidentally using the ship you select for Modernization or Dismantling. In order to lock you kanmusu you need to enter the change (変更) menu and when you highlight a kanmusu you will see a lock icon at the far right.

Clicking on the lock will lock the kanmusu into your collection and will prevent her from being modernized or dismantled. Reclicking the lock will unlock her. Keep in mind that only unlocked kanmusu can be used for modernization and dismantling. Always remember to lock the kanmusus you wish to keep.

Recording and Deploying Preset Compositions

Preset Composition are the composition in which you have created and have recorded to allow for easy access by simply clicking a button to record and then deploy when needed in a simple click of the button. All players start with 3 Preset fleets but can unlock one extra slot by purchasing a Dock Key (1000 yen) at the Item Shop to open them up. You can currently have a total of 9 Preset Fleets

Recording Preset Compositions

Fleet composition Deployment Menu

Composition Recording can be done by selecting the Composition Record button (編成記録) located in the bottom left corner of the Composition page next to the Arsenal Button (工廠) located above the Composition Deployment Button.

Composition Deployment allows you to be able to take the preset fleets you have created and use the existing composition of the fleet you recorded to call them back in when in need for quick and easy access. To deploy a fleet you recorded press the Deploy Composition button (編成展開) next right to the Arsenal Button (工廠) located below the Composition Record Button.

From there you can choose a fleet composition you have recorded and select the blue Deploy Button(展開) to put your preset fleet together in your fleet composition on the spot.

Keep in mind however that depending on where you deploy your fleet may result in a warning indication to appear if:

  • Your fleet's name is being used else where (as it'll deploy the same fleet name you used to record, you can still force deploy but will result in a change of the fleet's name.)
  • A ship is being used in another fleet (you can still force deploy the fleet, but cannot use call in the ships that are in another fleet unless you removed them from the other fleet.
