I guess I’ll spoil the story a bit for this one. Kartu Oguma, a Fan character I made for this story, is Oguma’s grandson. Yes, Oguma is from the Metal Slug 2006 game. It was an idea I had a few years back when Past Life was a whole different story. To be honest, I did have a lot of concern when I started writing this story up about how people would react toward Kartu.
