- Shortly after winning the best performance award, Kasahara Momona started participating in lessons with ANGERME. She was later revealed to be joining the group in July 2016.
- Kodama Sakiko's outfit was made by her mother, and is based off a tomato which is Kodama's favorite food.
- This was the second year in a row that Inoue Hikaru won a judges award.
- Presumably disappointed that neither won an award, Sasaki Rikako blogged after the event saying that she loved Ichioka Reina and Kaga Kaede.
- In an interview with Top Yell in July 2016 regarding the event, Makoto expressed his disappointment in the seniors who had been around for three years such as Kaga Kaede and Inoue Hikaru, saying that they were defeated by the newer members.
