In episode 4, at about 04:18 when Nagi mentions mixing demons, it might be a bit far fetched up, though it is likely related to Shin Megami Tensei where the user mix demons together to obtain a new demon with another form.

In episode 12, Hinagiku sings "Cruel Angels' Thesis," Neon Genesis Evangelion's opening song, at her birthday party. Some of the movements and poses she makes as she sings, as well as some of the "camera" angles, are also taken directly from Evangelion's opening sequence.

In episode 15, at about 6:50, 66a can be seen on the clock being a reference to 666 Satan by Seishi Kishimoto since the sixes are of a similar style.

In episode 18, near the beginning, when Hayate asks Nagi what she wants, she says she wants a drill, because it would be the first thing she would put on her robot. This is a reference to the anime Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, where the main hero's mecha's weapon is a drill. Hayate then ask why she isn't at school, and Nagi just ignores him and says that if she has a drill, the robot would be able to move; this is, more specifically, referencing the Core Drill and how it activates the Lagann in the first episode of TTGL.

In episode 19 at 20:31 when Hayate hugs Maria, the hammer Nagi hits him with is Graf Eisen, the weapon used by the Velka Knight Vita in Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's

There's even a reenactment of the end of Yami's second duel against Insector Haga involving drawing monster cards indefinitely to cause unnecessary attacks.

In episode 20, Nagi plays a game that can be thought as a Dragon Quest(DQ) game because the fight screen is similar and she encounters "Prime" which is obviously supposed to be Slime in DQ, she even fights a King Prime, which is also known as a King Slime.
