  • All the French in this episode was written/translated by Elf, who (along with Runen) took several years of the language in high school. Taslin, on the other hand, had to be seriously coached in proper pronunciation for her lines.
  • In the middle of editing the video this episode, Blade's copy of Adobe Premiere became corrupted, and she was forced to finish on a borrowed machine.
