That was a very fun episode, although I still find all these girls fawning over each other to be extremely cliche for a show set at an all-girls school :/
I will definitely be basing Femchi's hair on Tenchi's new hairdo
And Hana seems to have gone full fangirl mode. That book she has is strange though. What are the odds she already wrote, and illustrated the cover of, a FemchixHana fanfic by the time Tenchi and Momo walked halfway across the school grounds?

I would think more Rose of Versailles
, than Utena. But I guess they're all "classical European uniforms" in the end.
Beni, however, breaks the mold a bit by wearing a male gakuran school uniform. I doubt anyone can question what trope she is.
Although most Westerners immediately associate that look with Jojo, I would imagine most Japanese viewers probably just see it as more of a generic Bancho/high school delinquent look, which does kinda fit her personality.
Ukan steps out representing... well... let's just say someone had better "Call [Her] Princess", or maybe queen. I'm looking at you, Ayeka.
I know it's probably not based on Dead or Alive, but that's the first thing I thought of when I saw her dress. There are two characters
in DOA with costumes that look practically identical to Ukan's dress. I guess it's a specific type of dress, although off the top of my head I don't recall actually seeing one outside of DOA before.

Also, any fan of Rumiko Takahashi should instantly recognize Hana's hand gesture here. I don't know if it actually originated from Takahashi
, but she uses it frequently in her manga.
