(Spoilers) Unlike the original manga, "Virgin Road" (ep. 3a) is constructed as a sequel to both "Alimony Hunter" (ep. 1a) and "Sweet Lips"/"The Sweetest Lips" (ep. 2b); this is strongly implied by the names, characters' relationships, and character designs. In the manga version of "Virgin Road" (see Countdown: Sex Bombs #2) the bride is called Sumiko Seno, while her friend and lover is Mika (no other characters are named). In the anime, the bride is Akemi Takase (as in both the anime and manga versions of "Sweet Lips" (Countdown: Sex Bombs #3)), while her mother is Yoshimi ("Sweet Lips" manga: Mrs. Takase; anime: unnamed ("okaa-san")); and the groom is Kunihiko Kōno, whose mother resembles Chiziru (both as in "Alimony Hunter" anime and manga (Temptation #1)), all of whom apparently know the she-male Jun/Yuki-sensei well, though under different names ("Alimony Hunter": Jun Nakatani; "Sweet Lips": Watanabe-sensei)—she received two invitations.
The opening of episode 1a "Alimony Hunter" depicts the Kobe waterfront, including the Kobe Port Tower and the Meriken Park.
In the opening scene of episode 3a "Virgin Road", Minato Mirai 21, Yokohama is shown in the background.
