** Mikuru also gets in on the act, bowing her head with her hands together just like Maya Fey.

** The entire episode [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v449/jahn0603/MIsc/LindaLindaLinda.jpg has almost a shot-by-shot recreation]] of the final scene of LindaLindaLinda. Down to the same guitar.

** The aforementioned episode is also a shout out to ''[[UchuuSenkanYamato Star Blazers]]'', which also took place on giant spaceships with giant cannons. The leader of the Computer club even quotes the CatchPhrase of ''Star Blazer'''s season 1 episodic villains by saying: "All hail the computer club!!!". The original line said by the villains every time they lost to the protagonists' crew being: "All hail the Gamilon Empire!!!"

* In "Live Alive", Itsuki is playing Guildenstern in ''RosencrantzAndGuildensternAreDead''. Poorly. Not to mention the fact that the episode's named [[LiveALive Live Alive]].

* A more subtle reference is the pun of Yuki's name on [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Rei Ayanami]]. "Rei" can mean "cold" while "Yuki" can mean snow. Nagato and Ayanami were both Japanese warships that served in World War II.

"Rei" can mean "cold" while "Yuki" can mean snow. Nagato and Ayanami were both Japanese warships that served in World War II.II.
** The plot of ''Disappearance'' can be seen as re-creating Rei's actions in ''End of Evangelion''. [[spoiler:Yuki connects with her own emotions and the people around her, and after a repeating cycle of suffering decides to rebel against her creator and use her full power to change the world; but gives the final decision to the boy who has been by her side all along.]] Very different plot, but similar character motivations.



* In the final episode of ''Manga/HaruhiChan'', there's a ShoutOut to ''Disappearance'', specifically in Yuki's DatingSim VisualNovel where Yuki gives the player character a Literature Club application form. The date in the upper left hand corner (intriguingly, Yuki used the Creator/KeyVisualArts date format in her game) was December 18, which is the date that [[spoiler:Yuki hijacked Haruhi's powers and remade the world in the ''Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya''.]]
* A fairly unknown reference in the Western fanbase, an early episode has Kyon almost incomprehensively slurring a remark that roughly translates to, 'This has got to be a lie.' The reference is to an internet meme originating from ''Kamen Rider Blade'' where the main protagonist's slurred Japanese is referred to as 'Ondouru-Go' by the Japanese fanbase. In fact, Kyon's quote is copied exactly word for word from one of the more popular 'Ondouru-Go' phrases.

Does this [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything sound]] [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion familiar?]]

** The entire episode bears uncanny similarities to ''LindaLindaLinda''.
** The group right before ENOZ is appearently a DetroitMetalCity cover band, with mascot and all.
