Trivia

  • Several of the pairings are references to Higurashi no Naku Koro ni.
    • Minon and Shinon (23rd place) reference Mion Sonozaki and Shion Sonozaki.
    • The Bernkastel and Akasaka pairing (21st place) references Bernkastel bearing a strong resemblance to Rika Furude, who was often paired with Mamoru Akasaka in Higurashi polls.
    • The Lambdadelta and Tomitake pairing (40th place) could be referencing Lambdadelta's name meaning 34 in Greek, which is similar to Miyo Takano's first name being 34 in Japanese; Takano was Jirou Tomitake's acquaintance.
