Not many people beyond her immediate wingmates, and a few of her former classmates from her time back at the Fusō Imperial Naval Academy on Etajima, know that Shizuka Hattori has a tattoo.


Illustration by Phil Moy, sourced by Doc at Wizard World Chicago this weekend

She got it during a port call in Inchōn, on the Koryō peninsula (which has been a province of the Fusō Empire since the First Neuroi War; it has been a much less messy and generally criminal enterprise than the real-life equivalent), during her freshman-year cruise aboard the training cruiser Katori, before she started aviation school. Despite the fact that she's a bit embarrassed by it, most of the people who've seen it think it's rather nice.

IRL, it's the package illustration from a Korean brand of cigarettes called, I kid you not, THIS PLUS.

Ohhhh, damn, I love this pic. What exactly is she welding, I wonder, knowing she's not an engineer?

Is this an upcoming scene, I wonder? Between the tattoo and the request Gryphon received recently, perhaps it's time for a return to this universe.

Well, I seem to recall a teaser that indicated that UF-G got called in on a case that seemed to be the first ship girl appearing in the SW universe while the others were in new berline for Fritzchin's wedding...

I didn't think they still had the two halves of the Mogami. =)

But hey, if they do, awesome!

Dunno about that, but there is a lot of speculation about just what DOES happen while a ship-girl is healing...

As many others have said, this pic is amazing — to my eyes it looks like Priss from the original Bubblegum Crisis. (It's definitely rocking' Kenichi Sonoda's style, that's for sure!)
