She uses the movie and it's events to explain to Carlos about how his "SHIFT" works, the in-game ability that allows people to mentally travel across space-time. They (presumably for copyright reasons) refer to Marty as "M", and avoid using the actual name of the movie, or any of the other characters, despite discussing the story of the movie in detail.[3]
    • Akane, Junpei, and Carlos discuss the time travel mechanics of the movie, including what happened to the "M" from the changed 1985. Akane discusses how, in the event that the movie follows a single timeline theory, then "M-2" was essentially murdered by "M-1" when "M-1" overwrote "M-2's" memories and life with his own. In the event of a timeline based around a multi-world theory however, she theorizes that "M-2" and "M-1" must have essentially swapped places, with "M-2" ending up living in "M-1's" history. Akane tells Carlos that this is akin to how his own ability works.
