The original The Dragon of Smoke Escaping from Mt Fuji is commonly interpreted as Hokusai's old age state, echoing his last word "If only Heaven will give me just another ten years ... Just another five more years, then I could become a real painter." That dragon called by heaven might just be Hokusai's self-projection. The Last Shooting scene has similar completion, accomplish symbolism, marking a break for pilot Amuro, and the end of the mass extinction One Year War.
