TriviaEdit

  • A Maiko (舞子 or 舞妓) is an apprentice geisha, while Plasma is one of the four fundamental states of matter.
  • Maiko Plasma in Japanese stands for Mycoplasma from Mycoplasma Pneumonia.
  • The drums attached to her are likely a reference to Raijin, a Shinto storm god, who is often depicted with having similar drums attached to him to create thunder.
