In ep 9 at 8:53 Minori is reading a parody of Free! doujinshi. This is appropriate to the episode since the theme is swimsuits.

In Episode 1, Kanou Shinichi imagines being infected by a biochemical weapon and granted powers, the scene is a parody of the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" and doing their pose.

In Episode 2 at 16:23, Petralka is referring to the manga/anime Shingeki no Kyojin (Chapter 2) where Hannes rescues Eren and Mikasa from a titan, however, causing them to abandon Eren's mother.

In episode 2, the manga that Myucel reads at the end of the episode about the Overlord taking in an elf slave girl is Bastard!! The panel shown is drawn precisely like a certain panel of Dark Schneider taking in Arshes Ney.

In Episode 3, Koganuma Minori, while cutting her ropes with a penknife (which she hid between her breasts and using Kanou Shinichi to retrieve it), mentions that it is like the style of Fujiko. Clearly she means Mine Fujiko, Lupin Sansei`s rival and love, who tends to gets out in any tight situation using certain objects with a flair of sexiness.

In episode 3, Shinichi refers to his magic power level as 530,000, a reference to what Frieza in Dragon Ball Z announces his power level to be in his first form.

In episode 7, Shinichi ridicules a parody of the Minami-ke Okaeri anime, saying that the anime staff and studio were great, but the director was lousy. The director of the Minami-ke Okaeri anime also directed the Outbreak Company anime, so he is poking fun at himself.

In episode 7, one of the DVDs on Shinichi's floor is a parody of Gintama, and another is of Tantei Opera Milky Holmes.

In Episode 8, Shinichi Kanou says: "sa sa sa kochira snake." on his cellphone, a reference to "Solid Snake"s famous line from "Metal Gear Solid". On that note, Kanou Shinichi also used ero manga as a means to distract the palace guards just like what "Solid Snake" does although using ero magazines instead.

In episode 8, at about 20:35, the message “ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US” is seen on the TV screen. This is a reference to the lines from the opening scene of the 1989 arcade game Zero Wing (ゼロウィング). The lines were poorly translated into English in the Mega Drive version of the game that was released in Europe in 1992. The bad translation became infamous and eventually resulted in an internet meme.

In episode 9, Shinichi and Minori mention that Elbia's drawing of an mysterious creature in the forest looks like "Morizo" from Aichi Prefecture. Morizo was one of the two mascots for the 2005 World's Fair held in Aichi and indeed looks like the drawing.
