*** Speaking of Obari, can't forget that Robotaa from the ShowWithinAShow is kind of similar with [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Compatible Kaiser]].

* CastingGag / HilariousInHindsight: The film director Fukasawa from episode 33 is voiced by Creator/WataruTakagi. The movie he directed has the edo era as its theme. The villains Uraganos and Bunbee appear at edo-themed movie sets (the former appears even in a edo-themed theatre play, later) and both of them are voiced by Wataru Takagi.

* TheMovingExperience: Yayoi decides to play an April Fool's joke by saying that she was moving away. However, the person she told it to, Miyuki, believed it wholesale and went to tell ''everyone''. Yayoi's unable to reveal the truth until Akaoni does it for her and the team is quite upset at this... until they realize that they only believed it because Miyuki believed it.
