Ship Description特I型吹雪级驱逐舰一番舰—吹雪特Ⅰ型駆逐艦一番艦・吹雪Special type I Fubuki Destroyer Class— Fubuki
Biography呀吼~我就是曾经让世界都感到震撼的特型驱逐舰命名舰、吹雪!啊不好意思,并不是在自满哦,事实上虽然参加过不少战役…却也没有什么值得一提的事迹…不过我还是会加油的!やっほー!世界を驚かせた駆逐艦の吹雪とは私のこと!えへへ、ごめんごめん、別に自慢するつもりじゃないよ~、だって色んな戦役に参加したのに、戦績はぱっとしなかったし…でも、やる時はちゃんと頑張るからね!Yoohoo~ I am the destroyer who recently made the world tremble, call me Fubuki! Sorry, I’m not trying to be complacent, in fact, I was in many battles… although none of them are worth writing home about… I will continue to do better!
Acquisition呀吼~吹雪级的大姐就是我啦,你就是指挥官吗?请多指教请多指教~やっほー吹雪級の長女とはこの私よ!あなたが指揮官だよね?よろしくね!Yoohoo~ yours truly Fubuki class has arrived, so you’re the Commander? I'm looking forward to your guidance~
Login指挥官,今天精神好吗~指揮官、今日も元気?Commander, how are ya feeling today?~
Details嘿嘿,指挥官原来这么寂寞的嘛~?えへへ、指揮官って寂しがり屋なのかな~Hehe, are you that lonely Commander?~
Main今天天气真好耶,指挥官你不这么觉得吗?今日はいい天気ね~、指揮官もそう思わない?The weather today sure is beautiful, don’t you think, Commander?
Main 2电,听好了,指挥官虽然也许可能是个废柴,但是大姐我超可靠的哦!大概電、指揮官はダメ人間でも、私は頼りになるからね!多分!Listen up Inazuma, even if the Commander is a total loser, but I am totally (probably) reliable!
Main 3被指挥官夸奖的话,一百句也不嫌多…啊,一百句还是会有点腻呢指揮官なら、私を100回褒めてくれてもいいよ!…むむ、100回はさすがに飽きちゃうかも…Even if the Commander praises 100 times, that still won’t be too much... hmm, or perhaps 100 praises will be a bit tiresome to listen to.
Touch帮忙工作?对哦……看到指挥官这么闲我都忘了呢~仕事の手伝い?そうだ!暇そうにしてるからつい忘れちゃった!てへ☆Help with work? O right… Looking at the Commander being so idle, I almost forgot about work~
Touch (Special)呜哇!吓我一跳!きゃっ!?びっくりした!Wow! You scared me to death!
Mission指挥官,有很多任务耶——啊~!莫非你又偷懒了?指揮官、結構任務が溜まってるよ――ああ!さてはサボったな~?Commander, there are so many uncleared missions—— ahhh~!!! Were you being lazy again?
Mission Complete指挥官,任务奖励来了~有我在说不定奖励会变多哦~?嘻嘻指揮官、任務報酬だよ~、私がいれば報酬も増えたりするかも?なんてね☆Commander, the mission rewards are here~ With me being here, perhaps there are more rewards now? Hehe.
Mail有信件~啊…原来是指挥官的吗…メールだね…あっ、指揮官宛だったか…Here’s some mail~ ah… So it’s for the Commander...
Return to Port这样然后这样,接下来……!?指、指挥官,欢迎回来~啊哈哈,我什么都没做哟!こうして、こう……あれ?し、指揮官!?おかえり~、あははは…今なにもやっていないよ?First, you do this, then this....?! C-Commander, welcome back~ Hahaha, I wasn’t up to anything!
Commission Complete喂~委托组回来了哟,别睡了!おーい、委託組が帰ってきたぞー起きろーHey~ The Commission fleet is back, stop sleeping!
Enhancement唔噢?!状态绝佳!うおお!?絶好調!Wow?! Excellent condition!
Flagship天气晴朗,心情绝佳~上了!いい天気~いっくよー!Good weather, even better mood~ Let’s go!
Victory嗯~哼,我很厉害吧~えっへん!私凄いでしょ?Uh-huh, I’m good right~
Defeat好疼好疼……指挥官我们快跑吧!いたた……指揮官、早く逃げよ?That hurts so much… Commander, let’s run away!
Skill哼哼,见识一下特型驱逐舰的厉害吧!ふっふー、特型駆逐艦の力を見ろ!Hmph, taste the power of the Special type Destroyers!
Low HP看起来不是开玩笑的时候呢……冗談言ってる場合じゃないよね…Looks like this isn’t the time to joke around...
Affinity (Upset)原本以为指挥官是能理解我的……指揮官なら分かってくれると思ったのに……I thought the Commander would understand me...
Affinity (Stranger)手里的这个?好像是叫御币什么的,感觉挥起来挺好看的就带着了~これのこと?「ゴヘイ」って名前だけど、なんかそれっぽいから持ってきちゃった~What’s in my hands? I think it’s called “Gohei” or something like that. It looks so pretty when swung back and forth, so I thought to grab it with me~
Affinity (Friendly)妹妹们不知道现在过得怎么样…不过既然是我的妹妹,肯定在哪里坚强地生活着吧~嗯!妹たちはどうしてるかな…まあ私の妹だから、きっと強く生きてるよね!うん!Not sure how my sisters are faring… Although, since they are my sisters, I’m sure they’re prospering wherever they are!
Affinity (Like)指挥官喜欢什么类型的女孩子呢?嗯?我只是参考一下,没有别的意思哦?啊~难道你想歪了?指揮官はどんな子がタイプ?うん?別に参考だけだよ?…ああ!もしかして変なこと考えちゃった?What type of girls do you like, Commander? Hmm? I’m just curious. Ha~ perhaps you’ve misunderstood me?
Affinity (Love)之前真的只是参考哦?反正无论指挥官原本喜欢什么类型,只要“将来”喜欢上我不就好了嘛~嘿嘿この前のは参考にしただけだよ?まあ、今はどんな子がタイプでも、私のことを「これから」好きになっていけばいいんだよ~えへへ♪I was implying something before? Regardless, no matter what type of girls you like, as long as you will like me in the future, then that’ll be just fine~ Hehehe.
Pledge虽然我说过会让指挥官在“将来”喜欢上我,不过这个“将来”意外地有点近呢~是不是之前问你的时候害羞撒谎了呀~?嘻嘻~こ、「これから」って言ったのに、意外とすぐだったね……あ!もしかしてこの前好みのタイプを聞いた時ウソついた?もうイケナイ指揮官だな~でもゆるしてあげる♪えへへ♡Even though I said that the Commander would like me “in the future”, but it seems that “future” has become unexpectedly sooner~ Were you a bit shy when I asked you?~ Hehehe.
