Trivia

When Kokutou is out with SHIKI on their "date," the two cat dolls that they win from the UFO catcher is an allusion to Len and her white counterpart from the Tsukihime universe. As Len is mostly passive in nature, White Len represents the opposite with a very active and aggressive personality which is portrayed by the opposing look on their faces. Both Len and White Len can change from human into cat form where they wear a black and white bow around their necks, respectively. See more »
