* WhatTheHellTownspeople: [[spoiler:Hikaru's father was a geologist who moved to the island where they used to live because there were rumors that the island was abundant in a valuable, mineral-rich ore. The other islanders saw this as an opportunity to develop the island into a new community, and put all of their faith and support in Hikaru's father to make it possible. When it turned out that there ''was'' no ore, which he himself didn't know until his superiors told him, everyone on the island blamed him ''personally'' for it. This led to harassment, death threats, assaults on the Takabe house, and ultimately Hikaru's father died while still trying to find the ore even though it was hopeless. It's been years since that happened and people on the island ''still'' blame Hikaru for it.]]
