Go back to Arjuna main page
This series uses a very large number of references to Hindu mythology, starting with Arjuna's own name. The original Arjuna was the strongest of the five Pandava brothers, the protagonists of the epic "Mahabarata". His bow, Gandiva, was originally Siva's bow, and was given to Arjuna by the fire god Agni.
Earth Girl Arjuna is also featured in episode 3 of Macross Zero, another Shoji Kawamori/Satelight title.
There are several brief shots of "rBGH (recombinant-bouin growth hormone)" vials in episode 5 and others. This is misspelled. The correct spelling should be "recombinant bovine growth hormone," the hormone to increase growth rate of cattle produced by bacteria using recombinant DNA technology.
