** Ando, the fashion designer in "War of the Words", is an homage to Creator/AndyWarhol. His full name, Uohori Andou, is pronounced like a Japanese rendition of "Warhol, Andy".
*** As an addendum, it should be noted that there was a famous artist named [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hiroshige Ando Hiroshige]] who lived during the time period of the series. Hiroshige is considered the last master of the ukiyo-e tradition and, unlike his peers, painted mainly popular subjects like urban lifestyles and famous actors.

*** The oppression of the Ainu by the Matsumae is the main plot in the ''Sidetracked'' PS2 game, which takes place in the north where Okuru fled from.

** Whenever Mugen is nearly dead, he sees visions of strange-looking spirits.

** Okuru is being pursued by members of the Matsumae clan, which did exist and administered the northernmost island of Japan, Hokkaido. Okuru's appearance and clothing are clearly parallel to the real-world Ainu ethnic minority in Hokkaido. The Ainu were some of the earliest human settlers of the archipelago but were pushed further and further to the margins by the arrival of the Yamato peoples, the ancestors of the ethnic Japanese. By the Tokugawa period Ainu language and culture were in decline due to external pressure and today both are nearly extinct.
