Mach Pizza Air Freshener Unboxed
A couple years back I posted about how Shigesato Itoi and MOTHER 1 were referenced in the Gintama manga. Well, the anime has since caught up to that point – meaning those drawings and references are now in moving color! Here are two quick screenshots for reference: There are actually a lot more – you can find them here courtesy of Eraserstatue, but some of it might not be considered ...Read More »
tan sent this to me a while back: Not sure if this has been pointed out before, but in the movie “Doraemon: Nobita and the New Steel Troops—Winged Angels” there is shot with a game box for “Father 5”. Maybe not that exciting, but I still thought it was pretty cool!? Yep, looks like a “FATHER 5” box but reversed or something! This sort of parody seems to be pr...Read More »
It’s that time again! Lots of mini-updates! Check ’em out! Memories of Deleted Saves Luke Records says: Hello, I just read your anti-piracy Earthbound article and had flashbacks. As a child, my brothers and I played this game constantly. We worked our way to the last battle twice, but both times all of our saves were deleted. We had trouble winning the last battle, and it was usual...Read More »
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 »
