– Left unexplained in the episode due to human error is the fact that from this episode forward, an active cameraman is filming the action.
– Related to this point, and due to the amount of cast/crew members who ended up in key shots, as well as the desire to use different angles for certain parts caused the usual mockumentary style of the episode was eschewed for a hybrid of traditional narrative and documentary style.
– First episode to feature Haruhi and Kyon’s Casual outfits.
– This episode was shot after episode 5.
