- Garren's 8 blank glowed before sealing the Bat Undead.
- After battle, Tachibana returns to human form and coughs.
- When the tough neighbor tells Kenzaki to be quiet, you can hear a poppy girl singing something. He's probably concentrating on watching an anime.
- Both Kotarou and Kenzaki are orphans. Kotarou's parents died, so he lived with his uncle on the farm until he died the year before. And according to Kotarou's research, Kenzaki has no living relatives.
- In Hajime's entrance scene, he rides his bike to the side of Jacaranda. In the background, there's a sign that says "Shirai Farm" in English. Under the Jacaranda sign it says "The old barn house".
- Apparently Kotarou worked for a publisher before deciding to become a writer.
- Disturbed the words "Kamen Rider", Hajime rushes into the red room. He drops his Ace Change card before turning around. He briefly appears as Chalice, but it's all in his mind.
- The series catchphrase is said by the narrator at the end of the preview "Now, fully unleash that power!" It's not used in any other preview. But Chalice references it in episode 3.
