What can we say about Japanese light cruisers? Hmmmm.... Well, the Agano and Oyodo -classes, were gorgeous ships (in my estimation). Most of the rest of them were kind of ratty-looking; dumpy straight stacks and all. Hey, they did their jobs; led destroyer squadrons and all that. Beyond that, nothing much to report.
