Nomenclature and Etymology
Akan's name could be derived from the word "aka" (あか) or the Kansai-ben word "Akan" (明かん). His attack was likely a reference to Lake Akan in Hokkaido, famous for its seaweed growing into balls called "Marimo" (毬藻).
Zoisite attempted to turn Naru into a monster, but turned an actor who was playing the sentai Redman into a monster instead, transforming him into Akan. Akan shot seaweed balls at people, which expanded and prevented them from breathing. In the end, he was healed by Sailor Moon using her Moon Healing Escalation.
- This is the only time Zoisite changes anyone into a monster that is not one of the Seven Great Youma. The other victims were transformed by Kunzite.
- He's the first monster created from a civilian that was not a monster in a past life.
- Enemies that resemble Akan appear in the video game Sailor Moon.
