* ActorAllusion: Relationships are blooming between [[{{Kannagi}} Rouge and Dan]] and [[MacrossFrontier Citron and Iceman]]. The only way to make the last one more complete is if it was Citron-Iceman-Spanky.
** Not on a romantic note, but [[PsychoForHire Price of Hell (Ali al Sarchez)]] declares the beginning of his fight with [[HotBlooded Iceman Hottie (Graham Aker)]] by shouting [[{{Gundam00}} 'LOCKON DESU!']]
* ExecutiveMeddling: Director Itagaki Shin, chief animator Hirata Katsuzo and other staff [[http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=90769 were fired]] after episode 9 because of low Blu-ray sales of Vol. 1, and it seems the majority of fans ultimately [[http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=120135 didn't like]] the turn the series took with the new staff.
* FanNickname: Boobsquash. For why, see GagBoobs in the main section.

* PortmanteauSeriesNickname: A peculiar example of this being the ''actual'' name; "Basquash" seems to be a mixture of "Basketball" and "Sasquash" (ie "Bigfoot.")
** Given Dan's penchant for ricocheting, wouldn't it more likely just be a portmaneau of "Basketball" and "Squash?"
** Or alternatively, "Basketball" and "Boobsquash".
