The Team's Disguises:
Although they look similar to the Factory workers' suits, the lighter colored suits the team wears are imprinted with "S.T.N.J." on the chest and on the back of the suit.
In the fight with the Factory Assault Team, Robin has her glasses on again.
Cowboy Bebop, another anime, also has an episode named 'Sympathy for the Devil'.
After Dojima tells the chief, "Good Morning", and he answers her pleasantly, Karasuma and Sakaki wonder what's wrong with the chief: The chief's personality seems to have changed because he's not yelling at Dojima for being late.
The "N" like symbol that Robin wrote on her mirror with lipstick is called "Hagall". It can stand for frustration, as well as a need to understand the limits of a situation and hope that luck will help one survive it.
When Nagira is leaning over a car talking to his third informant, who is in the driver's seat of the car, there are pedestrians walking by him. Take notice of one of the pedestrians who is walking in from the top of the screen because he has no head! It looks like the artists forgot to animate a head for the pedestrian, so all you see is a body (with a neck) walking and no one even noticed.
Both the standard DVD case for the fifth disc and the Collector's Edition spell the word "Oughta" as "Oughtta". The episode spells the word "Oughta," which is correct.
When Robin fully understands the wisdom of the Craft, she doesn't need her glasses to focus her powers anymore.
Goof: In the opening scene when Nagira is handing Robin the fragment, Robin extends her right hand. In a long shot, Robin's right hand is at her side. Then when we get another close-up, her right hand is back up.
Japanese Name Mispronounced:
Michelle Ruff, the English voice artist for Dōjima, mispronounces Minori's name by pausing for a moment on the first 'i'. On the Japanese credits for this episode, Minori's name is written in katakana as ミノリー. The last 'i' in her name is lengthened, basically making her name spelled in Latin characters (Rōmaji) as Minorii. In fact, the Japanese seiyū for Minori pronounces the 'i' at the end of the girl's name twice, which is correct. The first 'i', however, is not lengthened. It would not be pronounced twice or paused on as Michelle Ruff did.
Robin refers to the octopus as a devilfish because they are called that across the ocean. However, an octopus can also be a devilfish in Japan. The two kanji that are used for octopus, 蛸 and 鱆 (both are read as "tako"), serve a double role since they also mean devilfish.
At the park, Robin and Minori each have a box filled with Takoyaki. Written in kanji as 蛸焼 and 鱆焼 (or hiragana and katakana as たこやき and タコヤキ respectively), the treat is made with breaded balls and stuffed with pieces of octopus. There are numerous ways to prepare the dessert and the topping(s) can be equally diverse, with takoyaki sauce, worcestershire sauce, or mayonnaise being the most popular.
When Robin delivers the package to the "shipping" office, the secretary hands her a receipt with the year on it: February 12, 2056.
At the end of the episode, Miho is having a drink at Harry's. When she is first shown, her drink is placed on the server's side of the bar table. In the next shot, the glass has been moved right next to her with no time being given to show it being moved, like by Yūji.
The STN-J doorman is usually seen reading a fortune telling book published by Sunrise Publishing. Sunrise is the name of one of the production companies responsible for Witch Hunter Robin.
When Karasuma and Sakaki go to pick up the man that is to be put before the inquisition, a tall, two tower building is shown. This is Tōkyō City Hall, which is located in the West Shinjuku, 西新宿 or Nishi-Shinjuku, section of the Shinjuku Ward of Tōkyō.
From the appearance of the clothes of Young Methuselah, and looking about 8 to 10 years old at the time of the Salem Witchcraft Trials, Methuselah is now around a decade over 400 years old.
The statue Methuselah shows Robin praying in front of is Michelangelo's Pieta. The statue is of the Virgin Mary holding the body of Christ, shortly after he was taken down from the cruxifix. It was carved from a single piece of marble and is Michelangelo's only signed work. It is located in St. Peter's basillica in Rome, behind a protective wall of bullet proof glass to keep vandals from destroying it.
Goof: Saturn as a Greek God
Amon mentions that Saturn is a Greek god. Saturn is actually the Roman name for the Titan Cronos who was the father of the Greek gods.
Goof: Prescribing Antibiotics for a cold
When Robin goes to the hospital to see the doctor, he prescribes her antibiotics for her cold. Antibiotics are used only for killing bacteria; since the cold is a virus the antibiotics would have no effect on her condition whatsoever.
