When Shizuka tells him off for trying to take a cat's food, he grabs his "response notebook" and flips it to "I'm sorry". Shizuka tells him to apologize to the cat. Wataru shows the cat the "I'm sorry" page. Our Protagonist, ladies and gentlemen!
- In episode 4 (where Nago is properly introduced to the viewer) Wataru seeks advice from Nago on how to become a stronger person. The only problem is that he does this at the the Cafe mal'damour and right in front of Megumi, who had previously tried to get Wataru to listen to her with no luck. After protesting and being completely ignored by Wataru, she begs the owner of the cafe to listen to her. He looks at her for a moment before looking away with a cartoon-like sound effect.

- Megumi running out of the restaurant with the fish in her mouth is used as a parody of the "and knowing is half the battle!" G.I. Joe segments at the end of episode 8 by T.V. Nihon subs. "Remember kids, don't talk with your mouth full. Nobody understands what you're saying! GEE EYE JOOOOOOOOOE!"

- The objects and tarp falling onto Riki when their are being evicted from their massage/shoe shine business.
- Riki follows Ramon and Jidou with the tarp still covering him.

- A scene that makes good use of the transition between 1986 and 2008.
