“If there was a Japanese ship I could feel sorry for at all, it would be the Kumano.” – Fleet Admiral William Frederick Halsey Jr.

Kumano and Suzuya took part in Leyte Gulf, the biggest naval battle in history. While Suzuya was sunk there, Kumano managed to survive and began her retreat. She was beset by and survived 8 different attacks on her long and painful journey home before finally sinking on the 9th attack.

Final note: the romaji of the title is “Juubaku”. The main line of this song is “ai ni juubaku”, pronounced like “I need you back”, means “a gunblast for love”.

Kumano’s story in English, basically what the interlude text is about: http://www.combinedfleet.com/atully04.htm

Requested by Kuro Usagi.  The title, Flickering Surface, has a double meaning.  Surface can mean surface of water, but it can also mean user interface.  One flickering surface is the waters where Hiryuu sank, and the other surface your screen playing KanColle where she is reborn.

To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of the original Pandemonic Planet.  However, you can really throw out a lot of parts and make it into something incredible, such as this inspiring motivational song.  Touhou Jihen completely transformed the theme into something new and I’m a huge fan of it.  Also, that’s two songs translated now where Hecatia is bored.
