  • When Minako suggests putting on some music, Chibiusa's left arm briefly has two sleeves on it. This also happens when Minako and Chibiusa enter the room.
  • While the DiC/CWi dub of the series changed Minako's name to "Mina," her apron was unchanged as it shows her original name of "Minako" when she serves Rei soup at the start of the episode
  • This episode had gained a lot of attention from the media around March 2020 because one of the scenes had predicted the COVID-19 pandemic.
