  • Trivia

    • Shige's line to our trio about the whereabouts of the treasure ("Aru to shika ienai. Dakara koso nai to ii kire nai" that was translated as "I can tell you only that it exists exactly. Therefore I can't tell you that it doesn't") is a direct quote from Shigesato Itoi in reference to the Tokugawa treasure, and the name "Shige" could very well be a reference to him also. As Itoi is well known to be a huge fan of the Beatles and 1960s rock music, he may even have some bearing on the appearance of Shige, who many have noted has a "rock star" presence and attitude, and whose haircut and biwa lute give him a particular resemblance to the late Rolling Stones' founder Brian Jones
