  • After having taken him back to the place where they first met, Nagi asks Hayate if he remembered the place to which asks her if it was Kuk*rus Do*n's Island. This is a reference to Cucuruz Doan from the anime Mobile Suit Gundam.
    • Additionally, both Hayate and Nagi bring up Cucuruz Doan's Zaku in their conversation.
  • Afterwards, logos featuring "Asahi" and "UC" can be seen on two vending machines. This is a reference to the Asahi brand of soft drinks and UCC canned coffee.
  • While at the Sanzenin Mansion, Nagi pulls out a Leica M7 camera.
  • After having realized that her camera was a bit heavy, Maria suggests for Nagi to use a Leica CM Zoom camera instead.
  • While taking pictures at Rental Video V Tachibana, Wataru shows Nagi a Canon P camera.
  • After having moved on to the Saginomiya Mansion to take more pictures, Sakuya shows Nagi a Ricoh Caplio GX100 camera.
    • Afterwards, Isumi shows her "Camera Obscura", to which Nagi and Hayate wonder if it was a camera that was used to seal vengeful spirits in some game. This is a reference to the camera used in the video game Fatal Frame.
