阿武隈 (Named after the Abukuma River)
Abukuma is a somewhat high-strung and self-conscious girl. She tends to fuss over her hair excessively, apparently as a joke about how her bow was destroyed in a collision with Kitakami. Kitakami is portrayed as having a teasing/dominant relationship with Abukuma because of this. (See pool #7431)
See post #2082880.
Abukuma has blue eyes and long blonde hair in an elaborate hairstyle featuring double bun and hair rings reminiscent of Tsukino Usagi of Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon. Her bangs come down between her eyes.
She received her Kai Ni on July 17, 2015. See the page for more details.
She was historically sunk after taking damage in Surigao Strait and later being bombed while trying to make it to the nearest port (Dapitan) for repairs. Ushio was escorting her, and managed to rescue the majority of her sailors. Ushio and Abukuma are sometimes portrayed as having a little/big sister relationship because of this.
