Own 10 Copies of EarthBound!
There’s an anime called “Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko” which is full of pop culture stuff, and in the very first episode there are MOTHER references. Jump straight to 1:25, 3:33, and 4:00 to see them:
If you can’t tell what the references are, here’s the intro text to MOTHER 1/EarthBound Zero:
Pretty neat, it seems like more and more of these anime shows are referencing games in the MOTHER series. I’m guessing it’s because the kids who played the games back in the day are now all grown up and are the ones making these shows now.
Thanks to kenisu for noticing the references and getting the video!
