In case you are wondering how all those helicopters and tanks suddenly appeared in downtown Tokyo, it happens that an important Self-Defense Forces installation is located in Ichigaya, near Shinjuku. As of this writing, the Ministry of Defense is planning to move its offices there, from their current location in Roppongi.

Yokota Base, in the Okutama region west of central Tokyo, is the main U.S. military installation in Japan. With the closure of Clark Air Force Base and Subic Bay Naval Air Station in the Philippines, it is also currently the largest active U.S. military base in Eastern Asia.

The fictitious West Shinjuku NSR Building is based on a real-world counterpart, according to Aramaki Shinji: the NS Building, also in West Shinjuku. They are apparently duplicates in all significant particulars.

When Koji says that he is feeding himself "with someone else's hands," the original expression in Japanese is "nininbaori," or "two-person haori (coat)." This is the name of an old game in which two people get into the same haori and attempt to do things like feed each other, or put makeup on each other's faces. In our original release of MADOX-01 three years ago, we translated this line as "This is a coat built for two."
