TriviaEdit

  • As suggested by the album title and the recorded PVs, each song is is about a different country or landscape.
  • 空に咲む花、水に凄み地に宿る。 (Sora ni Emu Hana, Mizu ni Sumi Chi ni Yadoru.) is often misread sora ni samu hana... (which is the usual reading of the kanji), though the furigana written in the booklet states emu as the correct reading.
  • 桜花咲きそめにけ (Ouka Sakisomenikeri) is often mistransliterated as Sakura hanazaki some ni keri. The title, as well as the entire song, are written in an old dialect of Japanese.
  • Schwarzschild is often mispelled as Schwarzchild and misread schwarz child (with child being pronounced in English) but, as stated in the furigana シュバルツシルト (Shubarutsushiruto), the title is actually Schwarzschild, and is intended to be pronounced in German.
