    Does anyone else think it's more than coincidence that the show's eponymous organization has a numerical designation similar to Chicago's "Special Unit 2?" Or, that the Box of Dirge (illustrated in old record books) has a strong resemblance to the Cenobite puzzle box from the "Hellraiser" movies?

    That; plus the swords used by Kureha and Sakura resemble katana/ninja-to hybrids (similar to Blade's blade).

    Well Japanese work being totally original isn't written in stone anywhere so why not? After all the name of the show is borrowed from the old secret police force of Japan that was abolished by American forces after WW2.
