Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (7)

    • Chrono Number:
      VII Jenos Hazard

    • One of the books in Eve's stack of books contains a story called "Cherry Blossom Viewing From A Row House". It is a rakugo story about poor occupants in a row house who go out to view cherry blossoms, pretending their tea is sake and their pickled daikon are egg rolls, enjoying a slice of life.

    • In the beginning of the episode, the word "rakugo" was mentioned by Sven. Rakugo is a traditional form of Japanese entertainment based on comedic monologues, performed in front of an audience.

    • In the beginning of the episode, the word "tagaya" was mentioned by Eve. Tagaya is a reference to a famous rakugo (comical) story where Tagaya, a clamp craftsmen inadvertently knocks off a samurai's straw hat. The samurai orders Tagaya to be killed, but he beheads the samurai and lifts his head while people chant "Tagaya!".

    • In the beginning of the episode, the word "tamaya" was mentioned. "Tamaya" was one of the two leading pyrotechnics manufactures in Edo during the 1800s. To this very day, whenever fireworks are launched, people yell "Tamaya!".

    • The fight scene between Train and Creed was first seen in episode 1; The Solitary Cat.

    • Eve decides that a bell should be put around the neck of a bad cat, that way, it won't be dangerous anymore. So she puts a bell on a red ribbon and gives it to Black Cat to wear around his neck. Though he refuses at first, he eventually puts it on and is seen wearing it throughout the series.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Eve: (to Train) If you slip a bell around the neck of a bad cat, then you'll always know where he is, and maybe he won't be so bad anymore.

    • (Next episode preview)
      Sven: I'm Sven Vollfield, the cool, lone wolf Sweeper. So why am I traveling with two dependents all of a sudden? Damn, the cold wind is breezing through my empty wallet. Might as well do some work. Hey, Train! Don't just sleep, help out! Ah, you can rest, Eve.

    • Sven: What? Chronos came?
      Eve: But I took care of them.
      Train: Dummy. He faked getting hurt on purpose.
      Eve: Huh?
      Train: You think a Number would faint from being hit by a mallet?
      Sven: I-I spend three and a half hours looking for Eve, so why the hell are you both eating?
      Train: Because I was starving.
      Eve: I was hungry.

    • Jenos: You're underestimating me, Black Cat. Even three gunshots won't stand a chance against my Excelion...
      Train: Sorry to disappoint you, but my Hades is made from Orichalcum, too.

    • Jenos: What a surprise. To be able to meet Black Cat at a place like this. Yes, Number VII, Jenos Hazard. To the respected deliverer of bad luck, Number XIII, take this!
      Train: I'm no longer a Number. I'm now a wayward, stray cat.
      Jenos: A stray cat, huh? If I bring you to Chronos, Belze will be happy.

    • Train: Where's my gun?
      Sven: Eve, give it back to him.
      Eve: (shakes head) This person still smells of blood. So I'm giving you this... But I won't return your gun. (gives a stuffed black cat to Train)

    • Train: You... I'm not letting you get away with this.
      Creed: Train, don't you understand? That witch was the cause of your demise.
      Train: You... You're going to pay for this!

  • NOTES (1)


    • Belling the cat was mentioned in this episode. It is one of Aesop's Fables about how three mice try to put a bell around the neck of a cat, so they would know when the cat was approaching. The moral of the story was "it's easy to propose impossible solutions".
