Shout-outs found in The Child of Love:
- The style of the Dream Sequences is inspired by Neon Genesis Evangelion R.
- In chapter 6 Shinji tells to Asuka:Shinji (softly):"You see now...? The One I Love Is...You, Asuka."
- In chapter 7 the writer mentions HERZ when he tells he does not know what Shinji's daughter could call Rei except for "Auntie".
- When the children go to the arcade, they play many The '90s games and even a new-brand game called SNK vs Capcom.
