- An error is made where Mikuru's envelope disappears for a short amount of time. This is most likely due to Haruhi's directing
- The Limited Edition DVD contains an extra scene.
- In the scene where Mikuru does the endorsement ad for their model shop sponsor, Keiji Yamatsuchi, some model boxes can be recognized to be ones sold in real life, the most obvious one being the Perfect Grade GAT-X105 Strike Gundam from Gundam SEED (the rectangular white box) directly above Mikuru’s head. Mikuru is also seen firing a BB gun model of a Russian Assault rifle, the AK-47.
- The cat-men motif sometimes seen throughout The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya was originally drawn by Haruhi seiyuu (voice actor) Aya Hirano on the backside of scripts. Staff members discovered the sketches and incorporated them into the anime. Various variations of the cat-men illustrations could be seen throughout Haruhi Suzumiya merchandise (namely CDs and DVDs).
- The title of the intended sequel, "The Revenge of Yuki Nagato Episode 00", in Japanese is Nagato Yuki no Gyakushū, which follows the same construction as the Japanese name for the movie The Empire Strikes Back (Tēkoku no Gyakushū), just removing "Empire" and replacing it with "Nagato Yuki". So one could translate the title of the sequel as, "Yuki Nagato Strikes Back Episode 00".
