Random trivia: The Heisei era started on January 8, 1989. In Japan, each era is associated with the reigning emperor, and the Heisei era started when Akihito became the Emperor of Japan. Akihito will be known as "Emperor Heisei" after his death. The previous era was called Showa, and Emperor Showa was Akihito's father, Hirohito. In The Twelve Kingdoms, the rulers follow a similar naming scheme, and the name of Youko's era was Sekiraku.
