Apparently "Alcindo" is a reference to former Brazilian soccer player Alcindo Sartori, who at one time played for the Kashima Antlers in Japan.

Kesaran-pasaran are fluffball spirits.
No idea about Alcindo. Wikipedia and Google only cough up football (soccer) players when I ask. I suppose Kokkuri's response, "How old are you, anyway?" is a clue, but only for people who would know already. Maybe the Japanese in Anime blog will explain soon.

"Potato chip yakisoba"? I'm not ashamed to admit, I would try that.

Heheh, I was wondering what "kesaran-pasaran" meant as everyone kept mentioning it in their dialogue. I was close as I assumed it mean something like a fluffy-puffy or a nonsense word. I'm somewhat lost w/all the puns and references this episode though. Overall a another relaxing episode .
