Song Used

Over "Quartzer"


  • The portable console that Tokiwa's classmate is playing on is branded Genm Corps, they're the company that mainly backed the antagonists in Ex-Aid.
  • Despite wearing school uniforms, Tsukuyomi still wears her white cape, and Geiz still wears his black shoulder thingy.
  • Owada's name might be a foreshadowing of his fate (It's Japanese for "The end"). It's also the name of a famous kuso game.
  • When asked about games, Tsukuyomi says she's never played one where she needs to use her hands to play. To which Sougo replies, "The future is amazing." This is probably a reference to Back to the Future Part II. In the scene, Marty plays an arcade game. He does really well, but the little kids make fun of him for playing it with his hands. [1]
  • At the arcade, Bang Bang Shooting and the game company logo, Namco, can be seen. Bang Bang Shooting was a game in Ex-Aid, and Namco contributed some games to some Ex-Aid specials.
  • The code is a parody of the famous Konami code, but reversed. The Konami code is up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right and B+A together.
  • TypicalStandUser points out that Kamen Rider fans IgaDevil and Tom Constantine have cameos in this episode. [2]

Actor Trivia


  • After the first 13 episodes, it was decided to switch Uhr's spelling to Heure.

Episode List

This supplementary material appears to continue the trend of making fun of overzealous fans. They break the wall by talking about spoilers.

At the end, they say the director and staff aren't aware of the direction of the plot. And the in-show character propose changing writers, getting rid of the producers, or blowing up Toei in order to prevent certain plot lines from playing out. All of which are probably things fans have said in the past when expressing displeasure for the show.
