The color red is used predominantly throughout the series to represent the ambitious nature of the duelists as they face their challenges.
The duelists and other school kids are all overly attractive and between light kissing scenes and sexual innuendo a deep plot unfolds before the viewers' eyes.Ikuhara brings uniqueness to his works by influencing the elements of the play.The magic of the story is brought to life with artistic music, experimental direction and most importantly the beauty of the ritual... not only within a word but also within every detail.
