- For "Mystic Force", the mecha footage of this episode was not used and very little footage was indeed used at all. A lot of it was re-shot to introduce the Mystic Force Fighters gloves. Skeleton's red skull was not used either.
- This episode uses extensive foreshadowing regarding certain future events:
- Rin, the girl who is identified as "the key" by Infershia after she falls down while running away, will be a key character in the next several episodes.
- If you notice when Houka runs to help Makito, she throws the bouquet and Urara catches it. It is believed that during actual wedding ceremonies, who ever catches the bride's bouquet is sometimes believed to be the next one married. This alludes to her meeting someone which she will ultimately marry near the end of the series.
- Tetsuya will return in Episode 29.
