Trivia

  • The eye-like design of this Witch can be a reference to a drawing for a flower bed entitled "Tearful Eye" from "MEMO FLORA", Kenji Miyazawa's gardening notebook. This sketch shows the eye-like design of the flower bed and the plants to be planted there, but there is not a name of Boxwood (Buxus).
    • Boxwood shrub wood has been popularly used for miniature Christian sculptures, instruments, chess pieces, and the handles of daggers.
    • Coincidentally, boxwood shrubs are food for the box tree moth, which can devastate a shrub very quickly; this may relate to Shitori Egumo (Embryo Eve)
  • Yoshiharu Tsuge is Japanese manga artist. His surname "Tsuge" means boxwood in Japanese. The Witch may be referred to him and some of his work.
    • Sanshōuo (山椒魚, "salamander") is a story of a giant salamander living in a sewage drain. One day, he encountered a strange flotsam. It is a dead human fetus flushed down the drain, but he can't understand what it is.
    • Uoishi (魚石, "stone of fish") is a story about a legendary stone which is said that fish lives inside.
    • Nejishiki (ねじ式, "Screw Style") is his most famous work. The scene in which the wounded protagonist, looking for a surgeon, wanders into a street full of eye doctors is one of the most famous panel in the manga. The signboard with an eye illustration appearing in that scene, also appears as one of the flotsams in Sanshōuo.
  • Box Wood's identity as the "Stone-Dwelling Fish Witch" and the description of its familiars has been provided by Mizuna anon on 4chan's /pmmm/ general. (archival images here).
