** Most of the planes are expies of real, WorldWar2-era airplanes. For instance, the main "hero" plane, the Sanka Mk. II, is based on the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyushu_J7W Kyushu J7W Shinden]] with elements from Northrop XP-56.

* CelebrityVoiceActor: Suito Kusanagi is voiced by live-action actress Creator/RinkoKikuchi.



* [[DidTheyOrDidntThey Did They Or Didn't They]]: There are two scenes where Yûichi and Kusanagi are together that may or may not have ended in sex, but the camera always fades to black before any kind of confirmation, let alone acknowledgement afterwards.

* {{Expy}}: Kusanagi IS Major Kusanagi of ''GhostInTheShell'', even having the same last name and looking almost exactly the same. Except that she's a teenager. And completely nuts.

* OminousMusicBoxTune: Kusanagi has a big music box in her office that plays the film's main tune, possibly as a ShoutOut to the director's previous work, ''GhostInTheShell: Innocence''. It becomes ominous when it plays during Yûichi's realization that something is thoroughly wrong with his existence.

* DaysOfFuturePast: Aesthetically and technologically (for the most part) the setting resembles the 1940s, with piston-powered planes and machine guns... but then you have cars from TheSeventies and flatscreen monitors and televisions. Embodied particularly in the the aircraft, which are based on the ultimate generation of piston-engined fighters that died stillborn at the dawn of the jet age. Justified in that this air war is actually a form of glorified gladiatorial combat. Jets would be prohibitively expensive and wouldn't make for spectacular dogfights. Jets are banned in the short ColdWar after WWII.

* AlternateHistory / AlternateUniverse: It's not established in what year the story is set in (the 1980s-2000s presumably), but it features oldschool-looking airplanes side by side with ''monochrome'' lat-screen [=TVs=], and apparently conventional war has been completely eliminated in favour of WarForFunAndProfit that doesn't put civilians, or governments for that matter, at risk.

* MildlyMilitary: They do wear uniforms, but they use names or job titles instead of ranks and they aren't big on "mickey mouse" or saluting.
