Trivia

  • The writing that resembles English on the parka appears to say "Since 1987". This references the Japanese name of the gear. The writing that resembles Japanese appears to say "なまズ工業" Namazu Kōgyō, Catfish Industry, likely referencing the Zapfish on the back.
  • The Japanese name of this gear is a parody of the Japanese TV drama, "Kita no Kuni Kara" (From the northern country). This gear resembles the parka the main character of the drama was wearing.
