** Also the last episode takes many cues from the first episode of "Eternal Summer", all with a little twist - Makoto fetching Haru from the tub [[spoiler: so they wont miss their flight from Tokyo to Iwatobi]], the Good-bye tradition of Samezukas thrid years, now with Rin challenging his club, the pool with cherry blossoms, now prepared by Rin. And this time they actually get to swim in it. All in all it very nicely conveys the idea that some things, even with all the change are very probably eternal.

Haruka gets this from his old friends, simply called "Haru" by Makoto and "Haru-chan" by the one-year-younger Nagisa.



* RealityEnsues: When Haruka encounters Rin in their old abandoned school, they immediately start gearing up for an epic swimming match. This is interrupted when they discover why their friends were trying to stop them: the pool that hasn't been used in years has no water in it. They narrowly avert EmptySwimmingPoolDive.

** The elevator scene in episode 9 of Eternal Summer can't be anything but a reference to the [[LeaveTheCameraRunning infamous scene]] from Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion, with [[TheStoic Haru in the place of Rei]] and [[JerkassWoobie Sousuke in the place of Asuka]].
