 In Chaos;Head, "Noah II" is a device, developed by the Nozomi Technologiy Group, that gives its users the ability to manually induce a "real boot" (see Note ). In that sense, it can also be considered an artificial gigalomaniac (see Note ).
 The original word used, "RIAjuu" (RIARU, real + juujitsu, fullness), refers to someone who has an actual fulfilling social and/or love life, as opposed to those who spend all day indulging themselves in the virtual world.
 "Megalomania" is a psychological condition characterized by excess delusional fantasies, so a "megalomaniac" is someone with such delusions.
 The "gigalomaniacs" are not simply upgraded "megalomaniacs"; in Chaos;Head, they are a special group of people capable of seeing others' delusions, as well as turning their own delusions into reality by means of a "real boot" (see Note ).
 teralomaniac = super hyper megalomaniac
 A "scrambling" is a rapid deployment of fighter aircraft to counter an incoming threat.
 The Chaos;Head-specific term, "real boot", refers to the gigalomaniacs' ability to turn their delusions into reality by interfering with the Dirac sea (see Note ). It's somewhat similar to hypnosis, except that what it alters is reality itself, not merely people's perception of reality.
 This line is a direct reference to the increasingly widespread phenomenon of "hikikomori", people who have chosen to withdraw from their social life. In a sense, it can be loosely considered the antonym of "RIAjuu" (see Note ).
 The gal games (gyaruge) are a genre of dating games in which players, usually male, can interact with attractive girls. When pornographic in nature, it's also called "eroge" (known as "Hentai games" outside Japan).
 "Daga kotowaru!" ("But I must decline!") is a popularized character tag (see Note ) that's usually indicative of an imminent reversal of a bad situation, often for the protagonist(s).
 In Japanese, the word "FURAGU (flag)", when used in stories, refers to a character tag that signals to the readers/viewers that something represented by that tag will happen to the character who has been tagged. For example, when a good character, who's about to go on a dangerous mission, says to his girlfriend/fiancée, "When I return, let's get married.", then it can be inferred that he will most likely die and never be able to return. The example shown is a specific case of flag: the "shibou FURAGU" ("Death flag"). The song alludes to a more general flag to "proceed to the heroine's route", i.e. to change the course of the storyline towards the specific ending of said heroine.
 An "error" is another term specific to Chaos;Head, simply another name for the gigalomaniacs' delusions.
 The GEROKAERUn (Gero-Frog) is a popular mascot/brand in Chaos;Head.
 In Chaos;Head, the Third Melt is an experimentally induced earthquake with a magnitude equal to that of the Kanto Earthquake (8).
 The Dirac sea is a theoretical model of the vacuum as an infinite sea of particles with negative energy. In Chaos;Head, the gigalomaniacs may interfere with the Dirac sea to support their real boot.
 VHF = Very High Frequency
 UHF = Ultra High Frequency
 DTTV = Digital Terrestrial Television
 The word "yume-ochi" is a specific type of punchline, by which at the end of a story, the author reveals to the audience explicitly that everything told has been a dream. A well-known example would be "Alice in Wonderland".
