    • TRIVIA (1)

      • While discussing the most likely scenario that a sniper will try to assassinate Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Jin to the Major, Ishikawa mentions that pieces for the sniper rifle were brought into Japan via the Etorofu route. Etorofu is the northernmost of four islands within what Japan calls the Northern Territories, a group of islands just off the northeastern tip of the large northern island of Hokkaido. The Shimoda Treaty of 1855 divided the countries of Japan and Russia between the islands of Uruppu and Etorofu. Due to the vagaries of World War II, a dispute arose about control of the Northern Territories. Today, Etorofu belongs to Russia and is part of the Kuril Island Chain. The Northern Territories are covered more in episode 19 - "CAPTIVATED".

      • Kubota: I do feel bad about that incident with the Colonel. Really.
        Aramaki: I was simply doing precisely what the Colonel trained me to do.

        Aramaki and Kubota are referring to an incident with their former intelligence school instructor Colonel Tonoda. The incident is covered in the 1991 Ghost in the Shell manga by Shirō Masamune in the chapter entitled "ROBOT RONDO".
