Other Information

  • Final performance for Senka member Kou Akemi.
  • Michiyuki (lit. "travelling") is a part of a Japanese traditional play which describes the journey of main characters (especially to the place of their suicide). Places that characters pass by are usually connected to the main plot of the play or symbolize heroes' feelings and important moments of their lives. This way, "Koi no Michiyuki" could mean "Love as the road of life".
  • In the beginning we are shown a reconstruction of the last scene in Chikamatsu's 'Sonnezaki shinjuu', and the story itself is a reconstructed 'true-life version' of 'Shinjuu at the Heavens' Net Isle'. Also we can see scenes, which resemble 'The Messenger to Hell', 'A Girl from Hakata', and some scenes hint that Hayami Seikichi is one of 'Chuushinura' personnages.
  • Katada Kisayo is a woman musician, who devoted her life to re-creation the music of the Edo era. She is a guest composer here.
