Scene Cut

The Japanese original version does not put the opening credits and opening title card at the beginning of this episode and instead is placed about half way into the show. The English dub though keeps their opening credits placement near the beginning of the episode as normal.

The English dub also ends up cutting out the Nyarth line introducing the next part of the episode as well as the title card stamp which states: The End (kan 完) as the title card is at the end of the episode instead of the beginning which would make this line not make sense in the dub with its normal opening and title card placement.

Nyarth: After this is "Half, Numacraw".
ニャース: このあとは 「半分、ヌマクロー」なのニャ。
