EarthBound Cart Economics
April 16th, 2010 | Images
A few months ago we looked at a pretty big EarthBound reference in an anime show (see here), complete with a truly bizarre Mr. Saturn character.
Then Kelsey sent this in yesterday. I’m not sure if it’s a Mr. Saturn-inspired thing or not, but I thought I’d pass it on anyway:
In the new season of the aime K-on!! I have noticed little Mr. Saturn like key-chains. I noticed it in the first episode on one of the main characters bags(Ritsu’s bag), but in the second episode a similar plushie plays a role in one of the jokes.(Ritsu holds it up, but you find out it actually belongs to Mio) I thought that maybe the animators were fans of EarthBound and decided to sneak in some love, I’m probably trying to get my hopes up about nothing though.

What do you think? Mr. Saturn-inspired or just a coincidence?
