Lobelia's "bicycle-stealing attack" in the final closing credits is a reference to Vittorio De Sica's famous 1948 film "Ladri di Biciclette" - "The Bicycle Thief".
At the very beginning of the episode it shows Mamas A/B/C in silhouette in an action pose similar to that of the title screen from the 1970's TV series Charlie's Angels.
In episode 16 when Aoi wears the outfit Rizel normally wears , Rizel says "you're not the real thing so you have to wear yellow", a reference to fighting games when you play as the same character as the other person.
There is a reference to Maison Ikkoku in episode 18. When Kyoko first uses the mind control helmet on Tomonori he yells out "I Love you Kyoko" similarly to the way Godai does in the early episodes of Maison Ikkoku. They then cut to a shot of Kyoko dressed as Kyoko Otonashi from Maison Ikkoku.
In episode 19 there is a reference to Steel Angel Kurumi. Rizel cosplays as Kurumi calling Tomonori "master", adding "-Desu" to the end of her sentences and mentioning that the outfit was the same one worn on Pure (Referring to the live action series). Steel Angel Kurumi and Rizelmine were both produced by m.o.e.
