Trivia / Ikki Tousen

  • Actor Allusion: Goei likes to proclaim herself to be 17 years old... exactly the habit of her voice actress Kikuko Inoue.
  • Banned in New Zealand: Dragon Destiny volume 1 is banned on the grounds of possible child pornography. Madman Entertainment chose not to release the remaining volumes due to reaction from the New Zealand film authorities.
  • Cowboy BeBop at His Computer: When several articles announced the new cast members for Western Wolves, most of them stated that Ayaka Ohashi will be taking Yui Horie's place as Sonken Chuubou. Unfortunately, this turned out to be very misleading, since Sonken "Shoukyou" Chuubou never actually appears in Western Wolves, and the character who Ohashi actually voices is a completely different character who also happens to be called Sonken Chuubou. And of course, these articles failed to specify that.

  • What Could Have Been: Eric Klein of New Generation Pictures lobbied hard to get the studio back for the Dragon Destiny dub with the original cast, and was even in contact with Kadokawa Pictures themselves, along with reaching out to Bandai, Funimation, and ADV Films, who was the front-runner to license the season. Just after ADV agreed to dub the season at New Generation, Media Blasters acquired the rights to the series and dubbed it at Headline Studios, replacing the entire cast as a result.
