- This is the only instance in either the manga or anime that the Jusenkyo Guide is seen outside of China.
- The music playing while Ranma and Akane are in the cafe is an instrumental version of Don't Mind China Boy, which was the ending theme for the second season.
- The flashback to Ranma and Genma's training in Jusenkyo is far more faithful to the manga in comparison to how it was originally presented in the show.
- Despite Ryoga almost letting her know about his curse when the Guide reveals his secret, Akane never questions it.
- Ranma's slides include instances of past episodes from his first falling into the spring of drowned girl, his match with Kodachi, an unknown time when Kuno tried to take him out, and his bridal training for Picolet's wedding.
- Ryoga's flashbacks include when he was almost boiled by the Guide, being kicked by Ranma, and another instance of the match with Kodachi.
