List of Guests in Agito
- This episode reveals Shouichi's past as well as explains all the mysteries of the series. Truly 42 is the answer to life.
- All the Akatsuki-gou members are seen together in the same episode.
- The flashback in this episode reveals the first time Shouichi turns into Agito.
- During Shouichi's first battle against the El of Water on the Akatsuki-gou ferry, he is defeated and knocked into the ocean. This answers why Shouichi was found unconscious on a shore with amnesia.
- After cursing the passengers, the El of Water lay dormant in Sekiya Masumi. This is why it emerged within her in episode 33.
- On the Akatsuki-gou, Kino is reading a book with a Russian title: Modern Medicine - The Human Body.
- Later on, Shouichi asks Kino to take a look at his letter, assuming he knows many languages because he's a doctor. Perhaps Shouichi saw him reading the book with the foreign title.
- At no time in the flashback does the viewer see Shouichi say his name to the other passengers. Since it would be Sawaki Tetsuya at the time.
- Kino Kaoru "You saw the young man, right? He was dead! Many people die in my line of work. ...but most people die without regrets. Humans should live without regret. Living how they wish. Your life isn't limited by other people... in actuality it's all yourself."
