* Most Japanese characters in ''VisualNovel/RoseGunsDays'' adopt Western given names, apparently to forget about [[WorldWarII the war]] and start their lives anew, since the story takes place in an AlternateUniverse [[TheForties 1947]] where Japan fell victim to a natural disaster and was virtually repopulated by Westerners who tried to help rebuilding the country.

Then there's people like Erstin Ho and Sergei Wang. Then again, it's a far-future LostColony where the various cultures have presumably intermixed to great extent.
