Trivia

  • Haneyuri and Ray Fujita are the only actors who didn't reprised their roles as Chidori Yoshino and Shinjiro Aragaki. Although they were mentioned by Akihiko and Junpei during the song, your name ~real~. Chidori appears as a silhouette at the hospital where Jin approach her and recruit her back to Strega.
    • This is also the first stageplay where none of previous actors who aren't reprised roles didn't get replaced by a different actor.
  • Waku Sakuguchi and Tomonori Suzuki who double-cast as Ken Amada appears to switch different routes, as Waku appears in the male route instead of the female route. Which means Tomonori would appear in the female route instead.
