This Troper created KIKEN to have a series of Genius Bonuses and an Easter Egg here and there for those who are in the know about the world. Some Shout Outs will be here too. GENERAL KIKEN:
- The Tin Herons and the Brass Kites were supposed to be the Golden Phoenixes and the Silver Wyverns. The Crystal Dogs remained. All these are thanks to none other than Pokémon.
- Speaking of which, The Conflict of Tin and Brass is actually all thanks to the Tin Tower and the Brass Tower.
- Sleepy Hollow = Sleepy Hollow!
- Creation, Destruction, Regeneration — think Krishna, Shiva and Brahma. Or so it doesn't match.
- Romanticists/Idealists vs. Cynicists/Realists is reminiscent of the Sliding Scale of Idealism Versus Cynicism.
- Remember Derani's question / Title Drop during Chapter 2? It continues in a flashback here.
- Kakeru also says, "Was it the price of love just now?"
- "You're very Genre Savvy, I presume?" Tsugumu says.
- Dylan was the one who got his wormholes wrong. Amaki knows they're actually supposed to be Lorentzian ones. Schwarzchild wormholes aren't traversable.
