Japanese light cruisers all seem to be a little nuts. Maybe it's because they feel like they should be destroyers except they're too big and grown-up for that, but they know they're not proper cruisers either, so they get all that tweener anxiety happening. They're like the warships who weren't really ready for college but they're there anyway.
Also, these constant references to sleeping with one eye open around Tatsuta are really insensitive to Tenryū's handicap. She has feelings, you know.
