Changes from the Manga

Dub Changes

  • The scene where Manami peed on An was cut from the English dub but it appeared in the Sailor Says segment anyway.
    • Also, in one scene, after An puts a new diaper on Manami and gives him his bottle, the scene cuts to a scene where An is talking to Mamoru with Manami still present. In this scene, Manami has no diaper on him.



  • DiC's English dub's episode title is a reference to the William Shakespeare play Much Ado About Nothing.
  • This is the first time that Sailor Mercury uses an offensive attack, being able to freeze targets rather than only impairing their vision.
