** 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 Jomon 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.

*** 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.

* HeyItsThatVoice: Creator/SteveBlum, who was known for his role as [[Anime/CowboyBebop Spike Spiegel]], voices Mugen. Meanwhile, his Japanese voice actor is Creator/KazuyaNakai, known best for his role as [[Manga/OnePiece Roronoa Zoro]]. Jin in the dub? [[{{Gungrave}} Brandon Heat]]!
** In episode 2, [[Anime/CowboyBebop Spike]] threatens to slice up [[Creator/WendeeLee Faye!]]
** This isn't the first time Creator/KirkThornton has voiced a [[Anime/RurouniKenshin swordsman in blue]] and being the Blue Oni.
*** And Creator/KariWahlgren plays Fuu.
** In the dub, [[Anime/{{Gungrave}} Jin was once an undead gunslinging bodyguard to Fuu.]]
** The ukiyo-e painter from Episode 5 shares an English voice actor with [[CodeGeass Mao]].
** Manzo the Saw shares his voice with [[VideoGame/WarcraftIII Uther the Lightbringer and Kel'Thuzad.]]
** Okuru is [[Franchise/MetalGear Solid Snake]], in the Japanese version at least.
** Ukon, the psycho Chinese (maybe?) martial artist is also the equally psycho [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Aizen Sousuke]] in Japanese.
** Whilst we're on the Japanese version [[Anime/CowboyBebop Jet Black]] played Manzo the Saw, who himself could be said to be a [[LargeHam caricature]] of Jet Black.
** And Creator/KoichiYamadera (Spike) played Nagamitsu, the boisterous would-be samurai who wanted to fight Jin but only knew he wore glasses.
** Beau Billingslea, the American voice for Jet Black, kicks off the series as the primary villain Matsunosuke Shibui. He is promptly slaughtered by a merciless Jin.
** [[Manga/TriGun Vash,]] why are you holding [[DamselInDistress Fuu]] at knifepoint? Stop it, it's not like you.[[note]]For the record, this is episode 7.[[/note]]
** Fuu is [[Anime/{{FLCL}} Haruko]]??
** [[JohnnyYongBosch Koizumi]], you too? There really are no decent men.
** Which is even funnier, considering who [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Tsuruya]] voices...
