"You may be a Kampfer, but you're not a Mobile Suit!" This line from the first episode is a reference to a certain Zeon mobile suit (MS-18E Kampfer) from Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket.

"The red ones are really three times faster!" This line from the second episode is another Gundam reference, both a reference to the original series (Gundam 0079) and a meme that applies to the entire franchise as a whole. This line in MSG referred to how Char Aznable's personal Zaku-II was three times faster than a regular Zaku-II, and Char prefers his mobile suits in red, thus the "Red = 3 times faster" meme. In Kampfer, Akane says this line in reference to Shizuku's red bracelet, with the irony being that Kampfer-form Akane has blood-red hair.

During episode 1, Natsuru and Akane are talking about Seppuku Kuro Usagi in the library. There's a drawing image including Yukari Tamura & Michiko Nomura in the magazine. Yukari Tamura plays the role of Seppuku Kuro Usagi while Michiko Nomura plays the role of Harakiri Tora.

In one of the pages in the same magazine that had information on Yukari Tamura and Michiko Nomura, there is a miscolored shot of the Turn A Gundam's face.

In episode 3, after 2-4 begin taking money for those wanting to see Natsuru, a few of the guests present as being "types" and may be parodies, referencing other anime. The first wants to be her sister, similar to the soeur system in "Maria Sama Ga Miteru",the second talks about melons and produces one similar to Melon in Akikan. The third, essentially scary-girl type could be referencing The Ring or any other similar horror or, parodying the main character of an anime of the same season broadcast, "Kimi ni Todoke".The fourth girl is in bondage and longs to be called names, not unlike a character in Detroit Metal City. The last girl is of typical pervert-type but is reminicent of characters in "Koharu Biyori" and "Midori no Hibi" in her longing to dress Natsuru up.

In episode 5, Natsuru holding his Microphone and give it a shoutout: "She's the soldier of Uranus and revolutionary girl who overshadows Haruhi even when she isn't melancholic.".
