  • The news channel shown on television in Matthai Reese 's hospital room is named GNN8, a pun on CNN.
  • The fast food chain Touma and Lessar eat fast food of is named WDonald's, a reference to the famous fast food restaurant chain McDonald's. Amusingly enough, there have already been two previous parodies of the chain in anime adaptations of the Toaru universe: MocRonall's in Toaru Majutsu no Index Episode 18 and Macronall Hamburger in Toaru Kagaku no Railgun Episode 17.
  • Florence being torn apart by the Star of Bethlehem, with the Florence Cathedral in the foreground.

    The location in the first shot of churches being pillaged for the Star of Bethlehem's construction is Florence, Italy. The building being absorbed is the Florence Cathedral, just like it was in the novel.[1]
