Key events Edit
- The SOS Brigade discuss what they are going to do for the culture festival, with Haruhi deciding they should make a film.
- Haruhi, Mikuru, and Kyon go to buy supplies, such as a camera and model guns for the movie.
- Haruhi Suzumiya
- Mikuru Asahina
- Yuki Nagato
- Jirou Oomurei (electronics)
- Keiji Yamatsuchi (models)
- Haruhi's headband reads "Koharubiyori (小春日和 a period of temperate weather in early winter; lit. little spring-like weather)", in which 春日 can be also read 'Haruhi'. Nagato's headband reads "Okumanchouja (億万長者 a billionaire)", and this includes 長, which is the kanji used in her last name. Mikuru's headband reads "Zenjinmitou (前人未踏 a road that no one had yet walked; unprecedented)" and this includes syllable "mi". Although Mikuru's name is not given in kanji, it has been widely speculated that Mikuru is an alternative reading for 'mirai (未来; future)'. Itsuki's headband reads "Kokontouzai (古今東西 all times and places; lit. past and present, in the Eastern and Western worlds)", and this includes 古, which is the kanji used in his last name. Kyon's headband reads "Kikiippatsu (危機一髪)", which reads "nick of time".
- This episode was the 20th episode broadcast for Season 2, but was the tenth new episode.
- The events in this episode take place before The Adventures of Mikuru Asahina Episode 00.
- This episode ends rather abruptly (cutting out just as Mikuru starts to talk), with the next episode picking up directly where this one leaves off.
- It is quite strange that in the beginning of the episode, Yuki is shown to be incredibly athletic and quick on her feet, when in the baseball game from The Boredom of Haruhi Suzumiya, she was shown to do little more than walk in the middle of the game. However, this could be due to her data manipulation of the baseball game, making it impossible to lose, therefore, giving her no reason to actually run to any of the bases.
- Kyon's titles and responsibilities are Assistant Director, Photographer, Editor, Gofer, Assistant, Errand Boy, Quartermaster, Everything Else.
- Two girls from Kouyouen are seen on the train. Some fans say they resemble Yui and Mio from K-ON!.
