NPH Yostar has released Chen Hai as one of the characters of the Azur Lane series in 2022. Chen Hai is one of the characters in the 2022 Lunar New Year banner.
If considered according to the original Sino-Vietnamese Latin script, Chen Hai’s correct spelling would be Zhen Hai. However, Yostar used the romanization Wade-Giles for most of the female ships in Dragon Empery, including the Chao Ho-class cruisers. Thus, the new girl in Azur Lane will be known as Chen Hai.
Historically, Chen Hai originally existed as a 1904 German merchant ship named Manila. After many transfers, she finally found her way into the Chinese navy. The Navy converted it twice in the 1920s, first to a gunboat, and then to a seaplane tender. When Japan invaded China in 1937, the Chinese navy scuttled Chen Hai as a bunker near the port of Chingtao (Qingdao).
Today, let’s take a look at Chen Hai cosplay photos with mysterious but equally seductive and ‘stimulating’ black costumes!
