- Big in Japan:
- Around 2008, 4chan users uploaded the original episode on Nico Nico Douga and netted a respectable 8,500 views at the time of this writing.
- They also subsequently uploaded the second and third episodes, the remake episodes, the fake fourth and fifth episodes made by 4chan, and the real fourth episode. There's even a fan dub of the first episode translated in Japanese.
- A MAD version or parody of the same episode was then uploaded on Nico around 2013, netting a whopping 35,000 views. It probably helped that it had an intentionally lewd thumbnail.
- Fan Nickname:
- Hilarious in Hindsight: The word "Crystal" would later be used in the title of the official remake of another famous Magical Girl series.
- So Bad, It's Good
- Stock Footage Failure: Cookie's transformation in episode three. She goes from wearing her school uniform to wearing her civilian outfit.
- Strangled by the Red String: Ryou/Minto
