Well, that's just Ikazuchi. She's always like that. She just wants to get across the notion that DesDiv 6 is reliable, and doesn't know any more general way of saying it. Anyway, she was the quickest of the four to take a liking to him, for reasons which will be examined in the next line.

No, but they do have instincts - which, as it happens, they didn't have before, and are still getting used to the concept. That was kind of the idea, anyway.

It might be out of context; on the other hand, it might equally indicate that Ōyodo has already figured out how the situation is likely to unfold. She's pretty sharp. Battleship-class processor in a light cruiser, y'know. :)
