  • When Yuki falls asleep in class, Yori wakes her up by telling her that they are having Taiyaki for lunch. Yuki awakens with a start by saying that she'll have some. This is a reference to the character Ayu from Kanon who also likes Taiyaki. The voice actor for both Ayu and Yuki is Yui Horie.

  • St. Xocolatl's Day St. Xocolatl's Day is an obvious allusion to Valentine's Day, where people give chocolates and cards as gifts.

  • When Aido lies to Akatsuki about his "treasures", his nose grows bigger. This is an allusion to the story about the puppet, Pinocchio, where whenever Pinocchio would tell a lie, his nose would grow bigger.
