Maare uses a weather Disaster Maker to create chaotic and bizarre storms to discredit Kirara out of jealousy for the attention everyone gives her.

  • When Marre is scheming her plan to use the Weather Crisis Maker, viewers can clearly and briefly see the breath of the suit actor coming out of the costume, when Marre is supposed to be machine. This indicates that the time of the location the crew was shooting at was on a cold spring day. While the episode aired in June, it was likely filmed in April or early May, as it would be odd for such cold temperatures to occur during the summertime.
  • Most of the storm disasters are done well effects-wise and create the illusion of different kinds of weather. However, the one with the hail is where a man runs for cover under a tree is not very convincing, as it is shown to be a clear, cloudless sunny day in the background and some of the hail is at a trajectory indicating it is being thrown by the effects crew rather than falling from the sky.
