* NiceJobFixingItVillain: In the story "Kaiso", Usagi befriends a kaiso(seaweed farmer) who suspects a farmer from a neighboring village of poaching his seaweed and selling it to a kaiso-broker, while the other farmer accused the first farmer of poaching his seaweed. In the end, Usagi uncovers the truth; the broker was poaching seaweed from both farmers, in order to sow mistrust between the two villages. He feared that if the two farmers formed a partnership they could sell their seaweed without his assistance and drive him out of business. By the end of the story, the two farmers decide to form a partnership, and even make a point of thanking the broker for giving them the idea in the first place.

** Usagi and Tomoe: He'll never serve another lord, even one as nice as Tomoe's; she's been marked for an Arranged Marriage to an older lord -- in the tea ceremony chapter there's even a stone marker that means "path forbidden". (Though Sakai has advised concerned readers that a bad or tragic ending is not a ForegoneConclusion).
