Yeah, I've always been inordinately amused by the design sensibilities of the Arpeggio creators, namely that the ships would -know- about human culture, but only vicariously, not through personal experience. Their attempts at dressing themselves and acting normal are a big part of the comedy relief in the show (Haruna annoyed me but that whole coat on-coat off skit is exactly what I'm talking about) and also show, without having to tell, a lot about their mental state.
KanColle, of course, had a very different standard when it came to character designs, not least of which because they were done by many different people. But they still fit into that narrative amazingly well.
That said, obviously some people, like Yamato, are beginning to adjust with someone around who can tell them what works and what doesn't. =)
