    • The final title card references Volume 26; referencing Kusuo's image in the cover of the volume and the colors used for the background.
  • While the sequence where the other characters are shown and Kusuo hears their thoughts is anime original, Asou-sensei revealed months after the release on his Twitter that he was the one who made it for the anime.[4]
    • In the same post, it was revealed that the anime production was considering to have an anime original scene with the character Asou voices due to them not having enough manga material. Asou wanted to avoid that situation, thus the creation of said sequence.
