Trivia

  • When the students first explore the Great Orcus Labyrinth, Shizuku jokingly tells Kaori that it is wrong to pick up guys in a dungeon while the latter is looking at Hajime. This is a reference to the series Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?.
  • When Hajime tells Yue he wants to bathe alone in the hot spring at Oscar Orcus' lair, to which she responds by saying "...But I refuse.", Hajime makes a reference to JoJo's Bizarre Adventure due to her response being the same as Rohan Kishibe from the series.
  • A comparison is made of Hajime's fondness to the Divinity Store with Chuck Noland's attachment to "Wilson the volleyball" from the movie Cast Away.
