EarthBound Hack: Hallow’s End
I recently came across this video that was originally on Nico Nico. If you like anime aesthetics, you might like it! That reminds me, whatever happened to that anime that had a bunch of characters based on video game characters? Did it ever air? Was it any good? Did anything EarthBound/MOTHER-related stuff happen? ...Read More »
There’s a new anime coming soon called “Aoi Sekai no Chuushin de” which apparently uses the old Nintendo and Sega rivalry of the 90s as the basis for a fantasy setting. Or something. It sounds a bit like that Hyperdimension Neptunia game. Anyway, the characters are based off of various games from back then – you got your Mario Bros.-type characters, your Samus-type characte...Read More »
I don’t usually post a lot of lookalike stuff on here anymore, but this one was too cool not to pass up! Speedy_Fox_IV sent this in: Hey Tomato, I was watching some of the old episodes of Pokemon and I saw a familar character pop up in the background during “a blink and you’ll miss it moment”. Turns out Teddy loves to dance. The episode was flower power from the third seaso...Read More »
A recent anime called “Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko” is absolutely filled with references to stuff, and in the past there’ve even been a couple MOTHER references (see here and here). Apparently episode 11 has some more references, this time we see a “FATHER 2″ cartridge and Mr. Pluto in a Super Mario Kart-lookalike: Thanks to Lollita Ares for the tip! ...Read More »
Some time back I posted about how stuff from MOTHER 1 was referenced in a new anime show (see here). Apparently, in a more recent episode, there’s another slight homage to Mr. Saturns. Here’s a screenshot: I haven’t seen this show, so I don’t know if it was mentioned in just this one scene or if it makes other appearances. It sounds like this show is absolutely filled with...Read More »
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 referenc...Read More »
In the last year or so we’ve started to see some EarthBound / MOTHER 2 references in more and more anime, and now we have another one! I’ll let Jeagle explain this one: The show is “My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute”, an anime with a protagonist who has a sort of obsession with games revolving around sisters. Dozens of other references to other games/anime with the ...Read More »
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 ...Read More »
I’m usually pretty slow when it comes to keeping up with stuff like this, I don’t even know what to call them! But here’s a cool MOTHER 3 video set to a vocaloid singing “Romeo and Cinderella”. If someone more well-versed in this stuff could help explain it, that would be swell ...Read More »
- Shannon Carr: I agree with Apple Kid. I’d love to have a Mother guide, even if it is in Japanese.
- Fjord: Animal crossing has a lot of cute references here and there of other nintendo franchises in all installments. New leaf just happens to feel...
