Character

Voiced by: Aya Suzaki

Illustrated by: Shibafu (しばふ)

Appearance

Like some other carriers, her attire is based on kyūdo (Japanese archery) equipment. She wears a scarlet kimono, a dark hakama, and a matching tasuki (a rope to tuck up the kimono sleeves to prevent them from getting in the way). She holds a bow with her left hand, and she wears a yugake (deerskin glove) on the right hand. Her flight deck is attached to her left arm. She has a set of arrows on her back, with the Japanese aircraft insignia (red circle) on the arrow fletchings.

Personality

Hōshō (Houshou) was the world's first commissioned ship that was designed and built as an aircraft carrier. (Other carriers of her days were conversions from other types of ships.) For this reason, she can be considered to be the "mother" of all the other carriers, and hence has a very motherly, caring personality and is more reserved than the other ships.

Her quotes also suggest that she is a stereotypical "good wife" of the old days. You can bet she's a good cook too, and in fact Chitose Carrier Kai 2's hourly line on 7 pm indicates that she runs a restaurant or possibly an izakaya (something like a pub or a bar).

In-Game Tips

Houshou is a good carrier to use early in game when your trying to play through the early stages of the game. But within time as you gather more proficient light carriers, and Standard Carriers, she will slowly less useful, especially for later maps in the game.

This however does not mean that she should be rejected from your fleet as she can still be used for various needs. Once thing she is most noted for is having the lowest ammo consumption of all Carriers in the fleet. Which can make her perfect for using Houshou to help assist in training planes and building up thier Aircraft Expertise. By using her to help retrain bombers and Torpedo Bombers and go to 1-1 alone, you're bound to be able to max out your planes ranks in about 15 sorties roughly.

Also as an alternative, Houshou should also be considered being kept for a quest and modification purposes, as once a month she'll be needed for the Monthly Plane conversion quest and can also be needed to help modify a Type 96 Fighter to max through Akashi's Improvement Arsenal in order to earned Skilled Pilots from a quarterly questline.

Trivia

  • Her name literally translates as "phoenix in flight" (鳳=phoenix, 翔=soar/fly)
  • Weak and outdated (but this helped her to survive WWII)
  • Due to her comments regarding opening a little store with the admiral, JP players often refer to her as おかみさん (Okami-san, lit. "boss lady" or the female owner of a typical Japanese store).
  • Her arrows have orange-yellow fletching as apposed to the white and green arrow fletching of other carriers, this is a reference to her role as a training carrier as the IJN painted its training aircraft a bright yellow or orange
  • Scrapped beginning 2 September 1946, after the mission of repatriation.
  • She served as a repatriation transport to retrieve Japanese serviceman and civilians station overseas and return them to Japan.During her repatriation mission she was modified to cut her hangars to carry more passengers to continue her repatriation trips before August 15 1946 and carries transported more of about 40,000 passengers before she was scrapped.
  • The original Houshou appeared in the animated movie "The Wind Rises", the aircraft carrier visited by Horikoshi Jiro and his supervisor Kurokawa. Nagato, with the serpentine funnel unique to her class, was shown as well, albeit briefly.
  • Participated in the Battle of Midway with her task being to provide modest air protection, scouting, and anti-submarine support to the Main Body (consisting of Yamato, Nagato, Mutsu).
