Haiyore! Nyarlko W Episode 2 Parody List

So, out of whim, I’ve decided to test my knowledge on anime/live action shows in Nyarlko episode.
I’ve done it the past with first several episodes of the 3rd season of Nyarlko and the last episode of Nyarlko W   on commie’s IRC channel.
I know that someone else is keeping a nice log of parodies with pictures and detailed explanations, so I won’t try to be detailed on my list. Rather, this is like a scratch paper that I scribbled my thoughts on the parodies (and potential parodies) I found during watching the episode.   (I’m just being lazy about making this look nice, but whatever)
Just skim through it and enjoy the wealth of useless knowledge that Nyarlko anime  is packed with.
(I ignore all the Cthulhu reference, btw)
(also, if you can’t read the Japanese, just look at the time to match with the video. I don’t think I can translate them the way you will see on subtitle in video, so I just leave them be. You can use google image search on the term to get a sense out of it )
So, here goes.
