The Yamato is the lead ship of the Yamato-class battleships.
The Yamato is the pride of the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War II, boasting the largest naval guns during its time. Its introduction laid the foundation for its sister ships Musashi and Shinano (which is a battleship in the Hai-Furi universe, as opposed to a fleet carrier in real life).
Protected by inches of belted armor, the Yamato is designed to take serious blows and keep on fighting.
The Yamato first appeared in the first episode of Hai-Furi, where it enters the bay to an unexpected welcome by Akeno and Moeka, who were young at the time. The Yamato is manned by Blue Mermaids, possibly cadets.
For the rest of the series, the Yamato remains at dry dock, undergoing maintenance. It's unable to participate in the search for its infected sister ship, the Musashi.
- Historically, the Yamato was the largest battleship built during World War II and served as the flagship of the Imperial Japanese Navy combined fleet until the position was given over to the Musashi.
