那珂 (Named after the Naka River)
Naka is the third and final ship of the Sendai-class Light Cruisers in Kantai Collection.
The Sendai-class wear a orange and white petaled serafuku with a black skirt and scarf. Cannons and a crane are attached to their elbow gloves. Each of them have medium-length brown hair and brown eyes.
For her second remodel, her uniform now more resembles an idol costume, with frilled skirts, white thighhighs, short gloves and holding what appears to be a microphone with tiny machineguns. Frilled bands surrounds her odango.
Her Christmas portraits gives her modified versions of her uniforms for her unremodelled self and her second remodel. They become red with fur trim while she also gains a santa hat and carries a sack. Her damaged portraits for her second remodel also becomes similar to her unremodelled self while the opposite is also true (she still ends up with an undone hair bun and a torpedo in the sack, whatever version she is).
Considers herself as being the fleet's idol, her second remodel definitely enforces that idea. She is also considered as being obnoxious, being an unusually common drop in certain fights or as the result of a bad roll with a battleship recipe. She gained the nickname of "2 Fuel, 4 Ammo, 11 Steel" after the amount of resources you get from dismantling her, often representing her as an actual pile of these resources. Luckily, the Large Ship Construction system doesn't drop her.
Historically, Naka was to be the second of the Sendai-class and was actually laid down before Jintsuu. Naka was originally laid down in June 1922 and Jintsuu was laid down in August. However, the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923 damaged Naka's original hull so much that she need to be scrapped and be rebuilt from scratch. Her new hull was laid down in May 1924 and she was finally completed in 1925, making her the third and last of her class.
