* The fantasy Ringo has in Episode 4 has Tabuki sing 'Dazzling the stage!' as he made his entrance, just like Takuto in ''Anime/StarDriver''. This becomes HilariousInHindsight when you realize Tabuki's voice actor is AkiraIshida, who voiced Head in Star Driver, the antagonist and [[spoiler: Takuto's father.]]

* The scene where the possessed Himari places her hand on Kanba is a near shot-for-shot remake of the sword pulling scene from ''RevolutionaryGirlUtena''. Not surprising given the director, again.
