Story and Character Trivia

  • Saku is actually six feet tall. This also makes her an inch taller than Motochika.

  • Motonari has 11 children, 9 sons and 2 daughters. Terumoto is the son of Takamoto, Motonari's eldest son.

  • In Chapter 4, Saku broke the fourth wall by referencing Harry Potter. This reference was followed up on by a sneaky background cameo from the wizard himself in Chapter 18 Page 13.

  • Hanbei is actually two years older than Kanbei.

  • Mitsunari hates persimmons, to the point that he equates them with poison.

The Author and the Making of Bloom

  • Bloom is not based on any play through of any kind. The author writes the story and choreographs the battles completely from her head, and with a great deal of assistance from her sister. It seems to have worked so far.

  • Although Bloom is not based on a play through of Pokémon Conquest, the author has literally beaten the heck out of the game. She occasionally thinks about playing it again, only to remember it would be pointless as she has already completed all of the post-game episodes, ranked up every single warlord, is rolling in gold, maxed out her link (multiple times, having replayed episodes), and basically holds Ransei in the palm of her hand.

  • In contrast, the author's sister and editor has never played Pokémon Conquest, only watched her sister play it.

  • Saku's design was somewhat inspired by the original female character's design, but deliberately made to be different. Her design was also made to include lots of flower and bright colors, which is fine in regular pages, but when creating full-on shaded pieces, shading all of her colors turns into a ginormous pain in the butt.

  • The author got Saku's name from Google Translate. It means "Bloom" in Japanese. After all, she and her sister have strived for originality throughout this whole comic making process.
