Off Topic: In Aichi, Japan, where the REWIND main office is, we have a professional baseball team called the “Chunichi Dragons,” so every time I see the name NINE Dragons, it looks like “Dragons Nine” (what we call the starting members for the Dragons team). Haha, yeah that was TOTALLY off topic… 😛
