Trivia

  • The name Kamihama (神浜) likely originates from combining the Kanji names of two major Japanese cities: Kobe (戸) and Yokohama (横).
    • It may also be a combination of the terms "kami" (神), a spirit in Japanese Shintoism, and "hama" (破魔), meaning "exorcism", the expulsion or defeat of evil spirits.
      • This would be an obvious reference to both needing to defeat Rumors and the ability of magical girls to summon their Witch forms as Doppels.
