Shigesato Itoi Fishes for Comedy
I usually don’t post “this random thing looks like an EarthBound character” stuff as much as I used to, but a few readers recently sent in news about a character in Natsume’s “Hometown Story” that seems kind of noteworthy. This is a character named Anna:
She looks a lot like Paula to people, and I can see it too. In fact, if I hadn’t known this was for some other game, I would’ve mistaken this for EarthBound fan art or something. Still, I feel it’s just a coincidence – it seems like this is a Japanese “pretty blonde girl” sort of pattern more than a reference to any MOTHER games.
…But it’d be cool if she were inexplicably able to start fires or summon lightning or something like that 😛
