  • Hapshiel seems like a Shout-Out to Queen.
    • His costume is reminiscent of some weirder costumes Freddy Mercury was wearing.
    • His appearance is accompanied by music very similar to Queen's Flash Gordon theme - compare Hapshiel's theme and Flash
  • Some hilarious ones to Neon Genesis Evangelion in episode 5, and the ending sequence to that same episode was a shout out to the opening theme of The Rose of Versailles. This is truly serious.
  • The opening of episode 4 has a familar leitmotif and more realistic Art Shift.
