    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (4)

      • The name of the adult who was roaming the hallways with a kendo sword is named Goriyama. He is also Ichijou's wrestling coach.

      • Imadori sings a little bit of the Hatenkou Robo Dojibiron theme song in this episode. He does it after Ichijou stopped Lala from stabbing him with a fork.

      • Although Yoshidayama did appear in past episodes, he actually didn't have any lines at all. In this episode, however, Yoshidayama has some dialogue.

      • During the beginning scene of the extra story, there is a shot of Harima in the past with two boys lying on the ground. One of those boys looks suspiciously like Kurosaki Ichigo from the anime, Bleach.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Tougou: "You really are a wild horse just like the rumors say, you know that?"

        Lala: "Hmph. They're just a bunch of gutless big mouths."

        Harry (shows Lala her arm): "Even with this?"

        Lala: "What? What is this hand mark? I see. Heh heh. I look forward to competing against you in the Sports Festival, Miko-chin!"

        Harry (points at Lala's shirt): "There's more."

        Lala: "What? Banana?!"

        [Scene cuts to Imadori on the floor with three boys surrounding him. Taps is played in the background.]

        Imadori: "I-I am not... going to... make it... sir."

        Nishimoto: "What's her size?"

        Imadori (raises his right hand and starts groping): "Same... as... M-Miko-chin."

        Nishimoto: "Well done, soldier."

        Fuyuki: "You are the man."

      • Yoshidayama: Hey, guys! I heard they got a new nurse today! And furthermore, a really hot one!
        Nishimoto: (covered in bandages) We already knew!
        Yoshidayama: What? So early in the morning? And what's with those bandages?
        Nishimoto: Hmph. It's obvious. An injured person, most certainly, must go to the infirmary.
        Yoshidayama: Are you telling me... that you hurt yourself on purpose to go there?!
        Nishimoto: I have no regrets. Because this is our way of life!
        Boys: Ohh!

      • Hanai: "Hey, you two. Cut-"

        Harry: "Cut it out, you two."

        Hanai: "Agh! Harry MacKenzie! He's in our school? He took my line, and on top of that, he creates this imposing presence?!"

        Harry: "Hmm, aren't you.."

        [Hanai backs off]

        Tougou: "Do you know him, Harry?"

        Harry: "Hmph. Something like that."

        Tougou: "It seems we have all been destined to cross each others' path. This is interesting." [walks to the front of the class] "I, class rep of 2-D, Tougou Masakazu, propose to you all: let the class of 2-D and the class of 2-C settle this quarrel at the Sports Festival! What say you?"

        Hanai: "He said it! He took my line again! I was going to say that, too!"

        Class 2-C: "What? Huh? Heck, no! Are you serious?!"

      • Lala: "Hmph, whichever country you're in, there'll always be... bums and hussies!"

        Ichijou: "L-Lala-san?"

        Mikoto: "Hussy?"

        Lala: "My father was in a mess because of a woman. So when I see trashy people, I get annoyed." [Lala crushes an apple with one hand] "Wanna fight?"

        Mikoto: "Not really."

        Imadori: "Wait a minute. I can do that, too!" [Imadori crushes a banana with one hand]

        [Lala's face grows dark as Imadori chuckles. She then grabs Imadori's head and holds him in mid-air]

        Boy 1: "Oh, the Iron Claw!"

        Boy 2: "Awesome power."

      • Hanai: Stop right there, Harima Kenji!
        Harry: You pronounced it wrong. My name is Harry McKenzie.
        Hanai: (nose bleeds) Who?

      • Harry McKenzie: Gundam Parody
        Harry McKenzie is like a parody on Gundam character Char (a.k.a. Quattro Bageena). Harry and Char both wear sunglasses and red jackets. Also, on Harry's yellow bike, it has the kanji character "Hyaku" (it means "hundred), much like how "Hyaku" is written on Char's yellow Hyakushiki mobile suit.
