The wings resemble a lot the "Ryusei" but how about the fuselage and jet engine? Any ideas?

I see your point about "Ryusei".
But my first impression was of a cross between a Ju-87 (that wing) and a Ryan FR-1 (dual powerplants).
With further modification, of course.

One thing certain: whoever is responsible for these fanciful designs has a good knowledge of Japanese WW II aircraft as well as a good imagination.

these designs are great !
Us guys over at the What-if site are watching :-))

I might have a go at a "proper" 1946 Walter-powered I-400-class as the movie designs are tooo Soviet.

This is clearly a Ju-87 influenced design, judging by wings, tailplanes, and front cowling's side view.

Top speed is very impressive.
