The TV female producer's name, Agnès Joubert, could be referring to a famous French TV producer named Alexia Laroche-Joubert, who worked for Endemol France, and produced several reality shows. What's more, when Agnès salutes Kotetsu & Barnaby, she doesn't say "konnichiwa", she says "Bonjour"... (cf. ep. 05)
In ep 17, the car Wild Tiger's brother drives, the logo is (and car) very simmilar to the volkswagen van and logo.
Episode 15 also has glimpses of two robots that look just like famous ones: Rotwang's invention from Metropolis, and Robby the Robot from the movie Forbidden Planet.
Nathan Seymour (Fire Emblem)'s car in episode 6 is a Ferrari Testarossa-- a rare and valuable enough car that his level of anger over its destruction is more than warranted.
In episode 15, the name Rotwang is a reference to the cyborg inventor in Fritz Lang's "Metropolis."
Stern Bild is visually based on Manhattan, incorporating many real landmarks such as the Empire State Building (seen in episode 16), Rockefeller Center (episode 19), and Central Park (several episodes).
