  The bit about Rei Sakuma being surprised was mentioned in UC Herald 2,
page 143; it seems that she missed the hints in episode 7, too. :-)
Tonghun indicates that the writers were kinda making up the Nina-Gato
thing as they went along, but he never mentioned anything to suggest the
series ran _longer_ than originally planned.

  I don't think it's ever been claimed in Animerica, either. I'd put the
"0083 extension" back in the speculation pile for now...
