* In Cinderella Rhapsody, the dub anyway, is A-ko breaking the fourth wall when she thinks to the audience "so I fibbed a little"? She does seem to face the "camera" in that scene. Her dream/hallucination in Vs. is a clearer breaking of the fourth wall.

* Does A-ko wear wrist bands when she goes swimming or not? On the Collector's Edition, there are scenes wear she appears to be wearing mini wrist bands and others where her forearms are indisputably bare.

** Considering the series treats super powers somewhat realistically, this is simple DNA shuffling. There is a lot of fanfiction that gives her the rest of Dad's powers, but personally I think this takes away from what makes A-ko special. It also doesn't help that both Mom and Dad have pretty much the same powers, with only a few powers each particular to one or the other.

* If A-ko really is [[spoiler:the daughter of Superman and WonderWoman, where are the rest of her powers?]]

** Bear in mind that C-ko was lost to the alien empire when one of their battleships carrying her was damaged badly enough to crash on Earth in the first place. Given the size and power of those things, anything that could bring one down would probably be a considerable threat. They were simply being prudent in the search for their lost princess, not knowing what brought down her craft in the first place.

* Why exactly do you send a battle cruiser to search for your lost princess? Granted, it's given that the search started after the Graviton City extinction event and therefore also took 16 years. Best I can think of is that some of the planets they searched were hostile, and they added the weapons as they kept losing women.

* C-ko seems to get progressively stupider every movie. In the original, she's somewhat smart if a little ditzy. She starts really losing it in Plot of the Daitokuji Financial Group.
** Well, this is one of the seemingly rare instances where someone actually thought that C-ko had any brilliance. Anyway, here are my thoughts on C-ko's intelligence. While I do think that "Plot of the Daitokuji Financial Group" didn't really develop her character much beyond what was initially given, she seemed to be at least almost like a case of PingPongNaivete. Examples of her "weird," "silly," or even "dumb" moments may include her first encounter with Mari, the "bug incident" when she was coming to class, her little conversation with Miss Ayumi at the pool about why A-ko wasn't coming up, not realizing her lack of culinary skills, and some of the random things she says. On the flip-side, some her "smarter" or more insightful moments may include the time she thought D was a rapist (D DID look suspicious and, arguably, C-ko showed some sort of understanding of sex), sensed that A-ko was starting to grow apart from her later in the series (and paying more attention to Kei), makes references to old anime every now and then (displaying a sort of knowledge others from her generation would probably be clueless), instances whenever she realizes that she acted "out of line," generally having the sense not to rush into danger knowing that she is weak and helpless, and (arguably) when she started to tire of A-ko and B-ko fighting. Basically, her insight seems to vary depending on the moment.
*** In the original she only seems slightly below average intelligence. From the next movie on, she gets more and more childish to the point where she seems more like she belongs in elementary school than high school. Vs. takes the next natural course of action and actually makes her 10 years old for its plot.
