  • The Song “Black Cat Floating in Bluesky” sounds very similar to the song “#Scene 20” from the Koudelka soundtrack. They both play once you have defeated the final boss.
  • The recurring theme “ICARO” comes from a kind of a song sang in healing ceremonies by Amazonian Shamans
  • The ending theme “Shadow Hearts” was performed by Hiroko Kasahara (who voiced Koudelka in the Japanese version of Shadow Hearts) and Kyoko Kishikawa with lyrics by James H. Woan.
  • Kyoko Kishikawa also performed and wrote the bonus track “True Voice”
  • The song “Sphere -Qu-” takes the word “Qu” from a form of Chinese sung poetry
  • The Acronym “DOA” most likely refers to the police term “Dead on Arrival”
  • “Kunyang” is another term for Ye County in China. This area isn’t particularly close to either Fengtian or Zhaoyang
