  • This movie's story is slightly based on the second arc from Cardfight!! Vanguard Manga, where Ibuki is an antagonist, and uses Deletors, also his purpose is similar in this movie.
  • This movie takes place after Season 4, and marks the last individual arc with Aichi and his friends before Cardfight!! Vanguard G.
