The show’s executive producer Justin Marks talked about the significance of black ship and said “The black ship served as the lifeline for trade between Japan and its neighbouring regions, as direct diplomacy between Japan and China was limited. Acting as intermediaries, the Portuguese and Spanish facilitated the exchange of Japanese silver for Chinese silk and vice versa. For Blackthorn, the Black Ship embodies his mission—to disrupt Spanish and Portuguese Catholic trade. His fixation on the ship drives much of his actions throughout the story, guiding his path with unwavering determination.”
