* BroadStrokes: In the live-action adaptation, Saya's mother [[spoiler:is Onigen, the leader of the Chiropterans]], similar to how Saya from ''Blood+'' is [[spoiler:the most recent descendant (along with Diva) of a line of Chiropteran Queens]].

** Alice [=McKee=]'s name is derived from ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'' for her first name (for Alice, it means she [[DownTheRabbitHole gets mixed up in a supernatural world]]; for Saya, both Saya & the story's Alice are lost girls in a world that is strange to them), and her last name is from the first syllables of Mahiko, who she replaces in the live-action adaptation.

to:

** Multiple meanings for Saya. In Hindi & Kurdish, "saya" means "shadow", and in the latter language, it figuratively means [[AntiHero "care, attention"]]. In Japanese, it means scabbard, referring to [[SheatheYourSword the peace that comes with sheathing your sword]] (making Saya's name [[IronicName ironic]], though also a nod to her katana). A set of Kanji, 沙耶, means [[MysteriousPast "question mark"]].

It also might be referencing how this Alice gets a "key" into "wonderland".

* BulletTime: The movie sure loves this for the action scenes, almost every move Saya makes is shown in slow motion. Visual ShoutOut (or blatant ripp-off) to Film/TheMatrix occur when both Saya and Onigen perform the famous dodge by bending over backwards.

** Akiko's name sounds similar to Mahiko, with both having the same last syllable.
** A ningen is a Japanese underwater cryptid and also means "Earthling" (but in a way that looks down on Earthlings). Onigen's name sounds similar to this.

Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: In the live-action adaptation, [[Literature/AliceInWonderland Alice]] [=McKee=] is the adaptation's version of Makiho, highlighting that she's just an ordinary person that goes DownTheRabbitHole when she gets mixed up in one of Saya's missions. At the end of the movie when asked if she knows the whereabouts of Saya, Alice answers that she is "searching for a way back from the other side of the looking glass." (as in, describing Saya as a lost girl like the Alice from the story).

Its main protagonist is a girl named Saya, who hunts blood-drinking bat-like creatures called chiropterans for a secret organization known as the Red Shield.
