In session 18 (Speak Like A Child), a map of Japan, and the surrounding area, is shown on screen around the 10m40s mark. The orientation of the map is "upside-down" but the words are not flipped, indicating this was an intentional choice.

Is there any significance to the orientation of the map? Perhaps, in Japan, South-up map orientation is more common than in the west? Or was there a geomagnetic reversal in the Bebop universe? Or maybe the words on the map were also upside-down originally and it was flipped when it was localized for US audiences? Or am I just reading too much into it?
