  • Market-Based Title: The Japanese producers came up with the English title themselves. Though it sounds odd, it is somewhat more fitting of the actual series than the Japanese title, which translates to "Magical Girl Squad Arusu".
  • Out of Order: "A Heart Sealed Away" is the second episode of The Adventures in the original Japanese release. The North American release, however, positions the episode as the fifth.
  • Voiced Differently in the Dub: Lennon is an androgynous boy who is assumed to be a girl, with a young, high-pitched voice that can pass as both masculine and feminine. The Italian dub, however, gives him a blatantly deep voice that makes one wonder how anyone could think he's a girl.
