* TheGloryThatWasRome: Marcus was a Roman Legate and is absolutely obsessed with recreating the Pax Romana in his own image. He still lovingly wields his old Legionary gladius. We also get to see Rome's last moments before Alaric's Gothic army sacks it. Colin is among the Germanics, presumably as a Celtic mercenary.

Set in the distant future, Colin meets up with a resistance group, partially held by the prostitute Dahlia, that is being oppressed by Marcus and plagued by a disease only Marcus has the vaccine to. Throughout the story we get flashbacks of Colin's failed attempts to kill Marcus. Marcus seems to be perpetually attempting to rebuild the glory of his beloved [[RomanEmpire Rome]] whereas Colin, blinded by his hatred, joins whatever cause is opposed to him in the hope of taking his head.

* AbsurdlySharpBlade: Colin cuts the head off Malike and it takes a very long time for him to notice.

* AbsurdlySharpBlade: Colin cuts the head off Malike and it takes a very long time for him to notice. Not to mention all the armored soldiers, battle droids, and ''tanks'' he cleaves through. This being an anime, it's forgivable that his katana behaves more like a lightsaber.
** Marcus' gladius has a nasty habit of cutting right through whatever sword Colin's using against him, until he finds a possibly magical katana in a burning Japanese temple.
