The four Japanese voice actresses (seiyuu) - Akeno Watanabe (Jo), Megumi Toyoguchi (Meg), Mikako Takahashi (Amy), and Rie Tanaka (Sei) - together sing two songs heard as background music on both the Japanese and English tracks of Burst Angel (Bakuretsu Tenshi): 1) "Fushigi Tokyo Cinderella" ("Mysterious Tokyo Cinderella"), episode 8; and 2) "Taiyou wo Dakishimero" ("Embrace the Sun"), episode 18. The "Fushigi Tokyo Cinderella" CD maxi single from JVC Victor (VICL-35680) contains full versions of both songs, as well as their karaoke versions. Both songs are covers of songs sung by the 1980s Japanese girl idol group Saint Four, which included a future Japanese voice actress of note, Junko Iwao.
The St. Luciana Academy that Meg infiltrates (in episode 5) is a pastiche of the Lillian Academy which features in the anime "Maria-sama ga Miteru".
In episode 9, Kyouhei and Jo are watching a very violent splatter film together. In case you were wondering, the film appears to be a takeoff on "Cannibal Holocaust" (1979, dir. Ruggero Deodato) - a film that's every bit as vile as you might think.
