** It is also a more direct one of Hiroshi Harada's previous work, ''Nido to Mezamenu Komori Uta'' for those very same reasons and the fact both movies has kids as their main characters, the key difference is that ''Nido'' is mostly a political short while ''Midori'' obviously isn't.


** Kanabun as well is fairly well liked despite killing puppies as his introductory scene. In the live action version, he is surprisingly played in a [[CreepyCute creepily appealing]] and also sympathetic way by SuG's Takeru, who portrays him like an excited little kid.
