Author's Notes[edit | edit source]

Author's Notes
Volume 018 Intro Image.png I hear you need stamina to sleep. If you sleep the correct way, even if it's for a short while, it seems like you can wake up nice and fresh. In other words, you should sleep with all your might. That's the idea. So, in order to sleep to the fullest in a short period, I decided to gain some stamina before sleep. I gulp down some strong energy drinks and snuggle into my blanket. Ugh, geez, I'm tellin ya, HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO FUCKING SLEEP LIKE THIS.

SBS Notes[edit | edit source]

Main article: SBS Volume 18
  • The Rankings of the Baroque Works females by name is based on feelings of happiness (the highest is "All-Sunday" since every Sunday of the year is a day off; the second being New Years; the third being Bon; etc.)
    • Miss Doublefinger's name is also explained in association with New Years: it is one finger on each hand thus "doublefinger" or 1/1 or January 1st)
  • If one refrains from bowing before a hiking bear, they will be subjugated to sitting in the traditional Japanese position for one hour. People have experienced massive leg cramps while undergoing this torture.
