Mars (火星 Kasei?) is the fourth planet from the Sun, nicknamed the "Red Planet" because of its red soil. Mars is mentioned frequently or offhandedly throughout the series.
The planet's name comes the Roman god of war, Mars (Greek equivalent Ares). The Japanese term used for the planet (火星, Kasei, lit. "fire star"), also used in China and Korea, is derived from the cycle of the five elements.
Mars is one of the planets traditionally used in astrology along with Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn, together with the Sun and Moon.
