    • Character Introduction: First appearance of Marla, the first-class demon from the Ah! My Goddess series, who also assumes chibi (mini) form. The spelling for Marla comes from the Japanese subtitle translation, but she can also be spelled Mara according to the US Graphic Novels translation, or Marller as shown in a few of the US DVD credits.

    • Opening narration: Starting with this episode, the verbiage is the same but we get a new set of video clips.

      Closing credits: They are all in Romanized Japanese, including their titles so I can't tell who's the director or writer. The voice credits are spelled out in English but in the asian (Lastname Firstname) format.
