''Star Driver'' is an eclectic combination of HumongousMecha, high school, {{shonen}}, and MagicalGirl tropes that brings together ''SoulEater'' director Takuya Igarashi and ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' writer Yoji Enokido for their first joint project since ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub.'' It's notable for its beautiful animation, bizarre JigsawPuzzlePlot, [[MemeticMutation FAAAABULOUSness]], eclectic cast of characters, love of GenreBusting, and numerous {{Shout Out}}s to popular anime shows.

** [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Eva]] uses Christianity, RahXephon uses Mayan...Star Driver uses Phoenician. Pretty much every Star Driver's name has a connection to the Phoenician letter their Cybody is named after. ''Tsunashi'' can be written as 十 (he wears a Tau, hence Tauburn, which means "mark"), ''Sugata'' can be written as 丰, and ''Agemaki'' can be written as 丫. Sakana-chan (Fish-girl in the translation) is so named because her mark, "Nun", means "fish." [[spoiler: Yet another clue before the reveal of Keito as the East Maiden was that ''Nichi'' is written as 日, which looks just like the Phoenician letter ''heth'' (meaning "wall" in Phoenician).]]

** The drama club's play (and by extension its sequel, the North Maiden's Sam the Squid-Piercer story) seems to parallel whatever conflict occurred between Samekh and Ayingott that resulted in Ayingott being crushed in Samekh's hand, but this is never told to the audience with full disclosure either.

Why Ayingott has much more sentience than the other Cybodies and why it's "evil" are never even hinted at.

Added DiffLines:

** Actually lampshaded in Episode 25 itself, in which Head reveals his motivation, which although not a ShockingSwerve still seems quite out of nowhere at first.
-->'''Head''': [[spoiler:If one breaks the South Seal and brings Samekh to the fifth phase, one can control time as one wishes. And as that Star Driver, I will become a time traveller!]]
-->'''Takuto''': *squints* What...?

*** Hell, the series' premise itself has many parallels with ''Utena'', as does the antagonist. This makes a lot of sense when you realize that Star Driver's writer, Creator/YojiEnokido, also wrote a large portion of ''Utena''.
