Now that you've said that, I'm particularly thinking of the scene where Takao goes to a bookstore to find out what a "captain" is. And Hyūga's silently referenced collection of Iona merch, which is ever-so-slightly fourth-wall into the bargain. :)

I seem to remember a bit in the Awkward Dinner Party episode where Hyūga (who, if memory serves, spends pretty much the entire episode trolling Kongō) remarks on Kongō's personal style choices, and Kongō basically snaps back that the algorithm just dressed her that way and furthermore shut up. :)

(That whole scene is gold, even considering that Hyūga annoys me like Haruharu annoys you. "Your meaningless human platitudes offend me." "Mm, that's exactly why I chose to say them.")

One of the interesting things that's emerging as we kick stuff around for the next part of the Fleet Record is that, at least in some cases, there are explanations for some of the things Corwin finds mysterious about the fleet, such as Yamato's peculiar fitment for and comprehension of concepts of hospitality, and Shimakaze's clothes. The rationale behind either one is not readily apparent to the observer, but they both have very specific reasons.
