    • When the fan girls are in their club room, keep an eye out for the Yuki merchandise. Every time the camera goes back to one angle, it's a different piece of Yuki merchandise!

  • Quotes

    • (English Sub)
      (Announcer talks about the Prince Yuki Fan Club)
      Announcer: The substance of its activities are "for all to praise, love, and defend the prince that has descended upon the school", but in plainer terms, that means "Fool. Don't go getting the jump on me, you bitch"

    • Hanajima: To truly love someone, is to always put their feelings before your matter what.

    • Motoko: Prince Yuki belongs to all of us!
      Hanajima: You say that, but if he truly belonged to you, would you be here fighting to hold onto him? You say that you love him, but if you did, would you really want to take his friends away from him? Would you force your will upon him to make yourselves happy, without any regard to his feelings?

  • Notes

    • Much of the episode is shown through the footage of the Prince Yuki Fan Club camcorder. This episode plays with camera angles, shooting from several different perspectives throughout.

      It could be argued that with an ordinary camcorder, the Fan Club wouldn't be able to hear a conversation from across a courtyard in another building, so it is assumed they had a mike or a bug near the girls.

  • Allusions

    • When Hana is talking to the fan club girls in her room, the poster by her bed features the fictional characters Ari and Mogeta. They resemble Ash and Pikachu from the Pokémon series.
