    • Bloodthirsty Yakuza goon Shark Fujishiro has the same English dub voice as bloodthirsty Mafia goon Ladd Russo.
    • With Todd Haberkorn as Nagasumi, Christopher Sabat as Masa, and Monica Rial as Maki; some viewers might get a sense of deja Sgt. Frog.
    • it can also give off a slight One Piece vibe:

      • Nagasumi's Dad is Don Kreig and Wapol
      • Nagasumi's Grandmother is Kokoro who ironically IS a Mermaid
      • Nagasumi's Grandfather is Zeff
