So, uh, what's with all the rabbits? I mean, I know Mako had a rabbit sticker on her calculator during episode 7, but I didn't know it was a dominant character feature of hers. Does Kinue mean rabbit or something?

Those bunnies are from Ryuko's pajamas.

Do you have knotholes for eyes?

Rabbits are a sign of fertility in Japan.

It means Mako and Ryuuko will breed and raise a family come episode 22

It ties into the Buddhist themes of the show.

No, really.

>In the Buddhist Śaśajâtaka (Jataka Tale 316),[3] a monkey, an otter, a jackal, and a rabbit resolved to practice charity on the day of the full Moon (Uposatha), believing a demonstration of great virtue would earn a great reward.

>When an old man begged for food, the monkey gathered fruits from the trees and the otter collected fish, while the jackal wrongfully pilfered a lizard and a pot of milk-curd. The rabbit, who knew only how to gather grass, instead offered its own body, throwing itself into a fire the man had built.

I'm just happy Guts made it onto the volume cover.

How is that theme in the show itself?

The rabbits have been showing up randomly since episode 1 if you were taking note of the surroundings. It's just an easter egg afaik.

Death is certain now

I would accept it if Mako offered up her body to quench my hunger

The pajamas were originally Mako's though. So it's still her symbol.

I don't recall her name being shown/written nor do we have anything tying Kinue to Mako, but the kanji for demon (鬼) is read as 'ki' and the kanji for rabbit (usagi/兎) looks a bit like it, but I'm just throwing out stretched, weak speculah fuel.

Aside from Mako (and in theory), the 鬼 and 兎 could back up speculah regarding Nui being Kinue and somehow bring in the mythological Nue (seeing as how her eyepatch itself is a mishmash of her name). Also: Nui's as cute as a rabbit.

Aside from that, this show will be top crazy if the rabbit(s) and Isshin's mouse become relevant.
