Ikuhara's Episode Commentary:
38: "End of the World"
There’s one thing I remained strongly conscious of since we were producing the opening sequence, and that was the final duel. When the prince awakened, the “dueling arena tower” would crumble. Right before the series began its broadcast run, we were producing a promotional TV spot, and so I was thinking up the narration for it.
"I’m going to be a prince!"
I had a premonition. I knew that line must have meaning.
