"Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt" was inspired by, of all things, the N. American animated show "Drawn Together." Quote-unquote: *** [PSG creator] Hiromi Wakabayashi is the twisted mind behind the initial idea for "Panty and Stocking"... Someone asked him about the inspiration behind the show. “A few years ago I along with other Gainax staffers at an american convention were watching the American tv animation “drawn together” and we couldn’t believe they were showing such explicit things on tv….. I thought…why don’t we do that!”... Hiromi also sighted "Power Puff Girls" and his love for American shows like "Glee" and "Gossip Girl." Hiromi is also a huge fan of American comics! ***
The post-transformation speech given by the Demon Sisters is a parody of the Team Rocket motto from Pokemon, where the girls say each of them names while posing, and ending with Fastener popping up to say his name.
In episode 2a, during the montage, at around 05:28, you could see Viral, a character from Gurren Lagann, standing in the back on the left side of the screen.
