Goofs
It is not clear whether this is a mistake or a hint that the Baron is alive, but in every scene that the Baron is shown, he looks different than the time before (position of hands, cane and hat).

(At 22:56 - 23:20) When Shizuku first follows Muta the cat into Mr.Nishi's antique shop. Just as Shizuku watches Muta enter the shop - we are shown a golden pig statue sitting on the ground being used as a door stop to hold the shop door open, you can see that it's head is angled so that it is pointed/looking to it's right (to the left from our perspective.) But in the next scene we see that the Pig's head is not angled to either side at all - and is instead shown looking straight ahead.

Q
Why does Shizuku's uniform change?
A
The first (white top) is for Spring/Summer, the second (navy blue) for Fall/Winter. It is one of the subtle indications of the passing of time in the film.
