Episode trivia

  • This was the only episode in which someone other than Usagi used the Disguise Pen; in this case, Minako used it to become a poor imitation of Sailor Moon. It was the first time it had appeared since episode 52, and it never appeared again after this episode.
  • This was the second time that someone masqueraded as Sailor Moon; the first time was in episode 33.
  • Eudial made her first appearance in this episode.
  • Her product warranty card showed that Cenicienta was made by "Sasaki," which could be a reference to Noriyo Sasaki, the writer of this episode.
  • "Cenicienta" is the Spanish name for Cinderella, which is why the Daimon in this episode was associated with glass slippers.
  • As Usagi, Haruka, and Michiru were en route to the Tokyo Tower, "Ai no Senshi" could be heard in the background. In the English dub the song was translated for the television broadcast of the episode, making it one of the very few instances where a Japanese song was translated into English instead of being simply replaced with a new one; in the uncut VHS and DVD releases the song was left in Japanese. Though the English version of the song was never released on a soundtrack CD, it has been dubbed "Tear Our Hearts in Two" by fans. In the Catalan dub the song was replaced with ""Rashiku" Ikimasho." In the Hebrew dub the song was replaced with a translated version.
  • In the French dub, the song "Ai no Senshi" was completely removed, and some of the footage from Sailor Moon's standard "I will punish you" speech was cut out.
