Panz Fry is mentioned in this episode. He's a filler character from the previous arc. The fish in the manga was from when they first arrived in in the New World. Also, this reference also removes the space of time for the events from One Piece Film: Z to take place in the story.
The Wano Kingdom's isolation is similar to the isolationist policy Japan used to be ruled under.
The commercial bumper theme was changed in this episode.
