    Cthuko is wearing a shirt with the phrase "だが断る" which is referencing JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part 4

    ReplyDelete
  2. 0:42 - I don't know if it's a coincidence but the way it was presented looks pretty similar to the Victory Mars from Kyuukyuu Sentai GoGo V.
    1:40 - "[...] ultra happy!", that is a reference to Miyuki Hoshizora/Cure Happy from Smile Precure. She sometimes include these word to mention about happy things.
    6:24 - "A Certain Camp's Haunted House" (Toaru Kyanpu no Uchirou no Ie). The way the title is composed is a reference to "A Certain Magical Index" (To aru majutsu no Index) or "A Certain Scientific Railgun" (To aru kagaku no choudenjibou/reerulgan).
    10:38 - "It's finally time that the body and soul of the two become one!" ("[...] futari no body and soul ga hitotsu ni naru toki"), there is 2 references. One is based on W-B-X ~W-Boiled Extreme~'s lyrics (W-B-X futari no Body and Soul [...] hitotsu ni), and the other is based on Kamen Rider W's Ep. 32 when Shotaro says "Both our bodies and souls... are becoming one!" ("Oretacchi... Kokoro to karadama mo... Hitotsu ni naru!") and unlocked the Xtreme Memory power.
    10:54 - "I can see it! I can see it, too!" is a reference to Gundam 0079, but I can't remember exactly who said it. Was it Amuro or Char?
    12:15 - Nyaruko doing a Kamen Rider BLACK pose.
    12:35 - "Hanyaan", see references from the OAV.
    14:58 - "[...] Double Nyaruko Kick [...]" is a reference to Rider Double Kick/Double Rider Kick.
    15:00 - The kick is a reference to Kamen Rider Fourze's Rider Rocket Drill Kick. You can see a materialized Drill, and the way is placed her right arm, feels like she had a Rocket too, even though she didn't materialized it.
    15:04 - "Even with five, Rocket Punch!" is a reference to Kamen Rider Fourze's Rider Rocket Punch. You can see this time a materialized Rocket.
