Characters: Kantai Collection Other Official Works
With the explosion of popularity of the franchise, a number of print spin-offs were made to explore the background of both the ships featured in the game and the setting, both of which are barely touched upon by the game itself. Through the course of some of these, characters have been introduced solely through these spin-offs.

This page is for the Kantai Collection characters who debuted in these print media.

Debuted in Shimakaze, Girl of the Whirlwind

    Ensign Akai Seiichiro 
The viewpoint character of the Shimakaze manga, Sakai is a junior officer recently transferred to the Maizuru Naval Base. Despite his training as a lecturer, his new post at the base is to be the assistant of the officer-in-charge there, and has little to no experience interacting with the Navy's secret weapons — the fleet girls, who are based at Maizuru. As his encounter with both Asashio and Shimakaze show, he has a lot of trouble seeing them as weapons instead of people.

Meta-wise, Akai represents players who visualize their Admirals being male.
  • Colorful Theme Naming: His name has the character for "red" in it. Indeed, it could be interpreted as bright or fiery red.
  • Expy: Personality-wise, he has a passing resemblance to Ichiro Ohgami from Sakura Wars, being a rookie officer on charge of many cute girls.

    Vice-Admiral Aosaki Sumire 
The commanding offider of the the Maizuru Naval Base, and Sakai's boss. Sumire is well aware of the gravity of her task, and the responsibilities she's been forced to put on the girls under her command, but she also makes sure to keep these concerns where they should be: in the office. When she's off-duty however, she seems to be a pleasant person.

Meta-wise, Aosaki represents players who visualize their Admirals as women.
  • Colorful Theme Naming: Her name has the character for "blue" in it.
  • Meganekko
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: While she's serious about her duty, she also understand that, in the end, her charges are also young women and girls, and gives them enough leeway with regards to their emotions. However her tolerance for B.S. has its limits, as evidenced by how she promptly threw both Asashio and Shimakaze into the brig when they quarreled with each other during training.
