Manga artist Nao Yazawa was asked to create the character design for Sandra, and in the original sketches, she gave him a rather extravagant eye patch and ninja-style chain mail. The producers of the series were unhappy with these touches, and so Sandra appeared in the TV series without them, but otherwise remained mostly the same. The original sketch by Nao Yazawa can be found in a special section of volume four of the manga (in the English translation put out by Viz, Sandra's name is translated as "Thundora"), but other than this, he does not appear in the manga storyline itself.

In the end of the final episode, the usual end credit sequence is replaced by a brief epilogue with a voice over narration by Aphrodite. See more »
I'll admit. I didn't see much in this series when first heard about it; of course, after they showed the first episode on the Anime Network, I saw the synopsis and was drawn in.
Many would argue (including me) that this has an eerie resemblance to another great bishojo anime, Sailor Moon; That being said, it doesn't mean that it's a bad series.
Momoko and her friends aren't too far from the aforementioned anime in that they both have a male counterpart to assist them against their foes, they both have a universe that traces back to different worlds, (The Angel world reminds me of the Moon Kingdom.) and as far as I'm concerned, through this series, I think every one of us could learn a thing or two about the power of love and enduring friendship.
Despite the obvious mirroring of these series, Wedding Peach is definitely a must-watch anime.
