Behind the scenes
- In an interview, Makoto Shinkai first joked that he added the character back so he can meet her voice actress, Kana Hanazawa, again, then said that this is fanservice for his fans from previous films.
- It is possible that she survived the 2013 Itomori impact event even in the original timeline, as she was seen wearing her normal clothes, instead of a kimono, which means she didn't plan to go to the festival but instead stayed at the school, outside of the impact area.
