Additionally, in one scene, Ruby and co. come out in French Revolution-style clothing, with Ruby looking like Oscar from "Rose of Versailles".

In the first half of the episode 31, can be noted the background seen in time 3:35, that seems to have something in common with "Mobile Suit Gundam" in a certain sense.

In episode 1 part B, Kanon and her lackeys was wearing a suit similar to that used in "Cat's eye".

In episode 7, while Ruby is sleeping, a manga with Akari and Yuuma paintings differently, from previous series Tinkle, can be seen.
In episode 7, Iruka imagines Jill whipping him and rewarding with fish. He, practically, is imagining a "BDSM" moment with Jill. Note that this is one of some reasons why this season has been carried over also in the magazine of anime for adult perhaps. Another reason in episode 13: in a dialogue between Sapphie and Iruka, she mentioned that "she want to find a method that will inspire his excitement"! She was referring of course to the physical contact; this is shown by the fact Iruka blushed.
In episode 9, is seen a vending machine where in the bottom part of this, there is an inscription that is a reminescence of the drink "Pepsi".

In episode 42, the Shouko's team, named "Sunshine", is next to a team named "Tinkle". This is clearly a reference from the previous series.

In Episode 50, During Labra and Master's battle scene, Labra performed an attack similar to Kenshiro's "Hokuto Hyakuretsu Ken" from Hokuto no Ken (Or Fist of the North Star in the States). Even the opening theme "Ai wo Torimodose!!" from the anime is played in the fight scene.
