Wow. I never thought I'd see that name again.

As it turns out, the ship above is named for the Aztec god of the Morning Star and Destruction. Weird, no?

Actually, yeah.

Some of these are outright jokes by fansubbers (the Clannad ones and the one about the Code Geass chess move), and some of them make perfect sense in context (Hayate the Combat Butler and Excel Saga).
