- Acclaimed Flop: Despite boasting much of the same Production Posse from Samurai Champloo and garnering critical acclaim, Michiko & Hatchin ultimately flopped in Japan and didn't get properly licensed in North America until three years after it originally aired.
- All-Star Cast: Michiko & Hatchin used Celebrity Voice Actors as the main cast in the Japanese version, all who were big-screen actresses at one point. Yoko Maki voiced Michiko, Suzuka Ohgo voiced Hana, and Maki Sakai voiced Atsuko. Advertising took advantage of this and played it up in one of their commercials, marketing the show as "an anime that Yoko Maki and Maki Sakai star in!"

- Name's the Same: The dub played around with this in a few minor roles:
- Anastacia (Anastasia Munoz)
- Ben (Ben Phillips)
- Chas (Z. Charles (a.k.a. Zach) Bolton) was pointed out in episode 22's commentary.
- Playing Against Type: Considering she plays so many little kid roles, Monica Rial voicing Michiko caught everyone off guard.
- Production Posse: Saya Yamamoto worked on Samurai Champloo under Shinichiro Watanabe, who would compose the music on both Michiko & Hatchin and Yamamoto's later work, Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine.
- The Wiki Rule: Michiko to Hatchin Wiki.
