Noike has a third-generation tree named Kyouko. Kyouko is experimental and has nearly the power of a second-generation tree.
Noike cuts her hair short in this episode, like it was in her GP days.
Debut of 2nd generation ship Kyoko
Noike's ship Kyoko, has a terminal form that looks exactly like a mass, like those that appeared in the 2nd OVA episode "I Love Tenchi."
