  • The episode title is a pun on Maika's name, as Chō no is literally Chōno from Maika's surname, and the episode title roughly transalates her name (Just like a butterfly,Maika - Chō no yōni, Maika)
  • This is the first episode in Aikatsu Friends to have a title as a pun on a character's name, and is followed by Episode 06 - Hinata EMAgency!?
