Trivia

  • Taking the katakana used for the name Sunaiku (スナイク) and moving ス (su) to the end makes the name ナイクス (Naikusu), the Japanese shortened name for NAIX, also known as NAIXATLOZ (ナイカトロッズ, Naikatorozzu). This suggests that the Sunaiku Foundation could be connected to NAIXATLOZ in some capacity.
  • The Sunaiku Foundation seems to be connected or alluding to different urban legends:
    • The date in which Sunaiku Foundation was founded, October 28th 1943, is the same date as the alleged paranormal event called the "Philadelphia Experiment" occurred.[1] The branch office for the Sunaiku Foundation is located at Philadelphia.
    • It's possible that the name of Sunaiku's chairman, Hasumi Kisaragi, is a reference to Kisaragi station, an urban legend originating on 2ch about a poster, Hasumi, getting off the train at the mysterious Kisaragi station. The story ends with Hasumi essentially disappearing after a message that their phone is nearly dead.[2]
    • It's possible that the name of the Branch Director, Polly B. Mary, is a reference to the Polybius urban legend. In this legend, an alleged arcade game called Polybius was used as a sociology experiment in the 1980s by a secret government organization studying psychedelics and brainwashing.[3]
