* According to [[http://www.remar.se/yuka Yukabaceras's News Page]], the Tasen still had quite a population before the final extermination hunt, after which the fleet heading for Earth lost contact with the rest of their race. The status of their species is unknown. As for Tor, it's possible that he attempted to hinder the detection of any Tasen colonies as much as possible, sending only a single scout team to the surface of Earth. Otherwise it's a stretch to believe they had no better way to go about it.

** To continue this line of thinking: Three Cans Later makes for a motif that symbolizes Iji's realisation of the burden on her shoulders. In sector 2 she already understands she's got to convince the Tasen to leave, and in 7 she's back on tracks halting the Komato advance.

'''Io'''sa holds a deep-seated hatred for the Tasen and contempt for humanity, much like how the incarnations of Od'''io''' revolve around hatred and human suffering, and her backstory holds similarities to how [[spoiler:Oersted became Odio]].

While this may seem like an odd thing to have a WMG about, it's tied to Komato computer technology. Komato and Tasen computers use ternary (base-3) instead of our binary (base-2), and if I remember correctly, Iosa's kill counter overflowed and looped around to 0. 3[[superscript:8]] is 6,561, therefore it seems like a good estimate. Alternatively, their byte size may be 9 (multiple of 3, close to 8), 12 (3 x 4), or 27 (3[[superscript:3]]), which would put her kill count at 19,683, 531,441, or 7,625,597,484,987, respectively.

Added DiffLines:


This also suggests that the kill counter is unsigned, since signed variables have undefined behaviour when they overflow, and aren't guaranteed to loop. (Assuming Komato variable types work similarly to human ones, which they logically would considering how quickly humans managed to hack Tasen tech.)

[[WMG: Iji has prior training, perhaps in a militia]]
Despite her reluctance towards violence, she is a good marks-woman, having a smaller spread with the machine gun than all of the Tasen despite the fact that they should be better trained than her and better able to take the recoil. (Although it may be that they're just poorly trained or stupider than humans enough not to develop good techniques during long lasting wars.) She is able to credibly threaten Asha with a head shot with a shotgun while feeling comfortable that she won't hit Dan.
