- Cross-Dressing Voices: While this was averted in the original version as Prince Chagum was voiced by a 14-years-old boy, it was played straight in the English dub where Mona Marshall voices him.
- Invisible Advertising: In America, the series just sort of showed up one Saturday (at 5 am!), and if you weren't following the schedule, you'd never have even have known it was on. After than and a couple false starts it finally aired completely and in a better timeslot, but still with zero advertising.
- Screwed by the Network: The English dub was aired at 5:30 AM EST by [adult swim], dropped after 10 episodes, restarted in a better timeslot, and then dropped again due to the fallout of Geneon going bankrupt; the release of the DVDs got snagged up in red tape. [adult swim] was not permitted to continue showing Moribito until the licensing issues were resolved and DVDs 4-8 were allowed to be released. However, the problems were eventually solved, and [adult swim] re-aired and completed the series between June and December 2009.
- However, it still aired at the rather...late hour of 2:30 AM, not even after Bleach, which actually was doing well at the time.
- Star-Making Role: Arguably, for Cindy Robinson.
