*** The Kingdom of Gallia is [[UsefulNotes/LEtatCestMoi the Kingdom of France]], with some flavors of Spain in it (like the castle of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alhambra Alhambra]] where Tabitha was imprisonned).

* BelligerentSexualTension: Louise constantly refers to Saito as "baka-inu" (literally "stupid dog"), usually when she's about to beat him senseless. These moments usually come right after she feels a surge jealousy. Saito, for his part, pushes her berserk buttons on a daily basis, but is loyal unto death to her.

** Siesta pictured [[https://i.imgur.com/vun3PFh.gif here]]. [[MaleGaze You]] are probably not looking at the LoveBubbles surrounding her. Used to great hilarity in one episode when the gang is trapped in a cave. They hear something approaching fast and prepare for a fight, until Saito realizes exactly what that sound is with a priceless look on his face while the viewers get the obligatory chest shot of the approaching Siesta (who's wearing the Sailor Fuku outfit Saito bought earlier).
** Not to mention [[https://i.imgur.com/Flx1rNL.gif Kirche the Ardent]]. Until Tiffania's debut she was the [[http://imgur.com/GX0xm59.gif most buxom character]] in the series and often does this in the first season.
