Trivia / Kagerou Project

  • Fan Nickname: Before Seto's official name was revealed, most fans took to calling him "Forest-kun" in reference to Imagination Forest, the song he debuted in.
    • Haruka was called "Dead-kun" by the English fandom before his official name was released based on the Children Record PV where there's one scene he appears in where he lying on the ground looking dead.
    • Takane was nicknamed "Actor" based on the PV "Headphone actor" until her official name was released.
    • Kuroha is a Fan Nickname since he still currently lacks a canonical one. Some merchandise call him Black Konoha, Dark Konoha, or Konoha? though.However Jin later confirmed Kuro Konoha to be his canon name.
    • Mekakushi Trio or Orphan Trio for Kido, Seto, and Kano, and Yuukei Quartet for the high school kids Shintaro, Ayano, Takane, and Haruka.
  • What Could Have Been: Jin stated in an early interview regarding Hibiya's background (before he was properly introduced in the novels) that he would be Childhood Friends with Hiyori. He also mentioned that Hibiya's quite popular in school, his only downfall being that he can't get Hiyori to notice his feelings for her. By the time he's properly introduced in the novels, however, with the exception of his unrequited crush on Hiyori, his background is completely rewritten.
    • Konoha, and Haruka, by extension were originally supposed to be girls.
    • Jin originally wanted to name the series Mekakucity Project, which was evident when all of his major KagePro-related albums are called Mekakucity ______. However, Kagerou Daze got too popular and so Jin was forced to name the series after it. He eventually got his way in the anime.
