Tips for Buying EarthBound

November 30th, 2009 | EarthBound, Uncommon Knowledge, Videos

In the Japanese anime series “Natsu no Arashi”, there’s a pretty big EarthBound cameo that includes Ness, Jeff, possibly King, and a well-endowed Starman. You can check it out here, see around the 1:25-ish mark.

EarthBound cameos in TV shows seem to be really rare, in fact the cameo in Shin-chan is the only other one I can think of off the top of my head. So a cameo this big is pretty cool to see.

Thanks to kevinchai for the tip on the forums! If you or someone you know has come across any other clear cameos in other stuff, let me know! I know there were some references in comic books, but I forget which ones.

Oh wow, that’s awesome!
Heh, I always thought of King as an Old English Sheepdog, not a labradoodle.

Haha, wow. Was expecting the naked person to be Paula… but then I’m like nah Jeff… BUT MR. SATURN? Now I remember why I stopped watching anime.

Jeagle101 said on Nov. 30, 2009

I’ll never look at Mr. Saturns the same way again.

Bound2Mother said on Nov. 30, 2009

and the d-pad and the little analog stick on the left seems to be from a PSP, oddly enough

I love how everyone is freaked out about the Mr. Saturn. I don’t blame ya, though. I thought it was going to be Paula, as well. The bow-tie on the one hair was the only reason, I believe, anyone recognized it. I found the Starman to be the most shocking cameo though, in the most hilarious way. Couldn’t stop laughing, man! The bizarre shojo ai Ness and Jeff didn’t help. And King doesn’t even look like his in-game sprite. I wonder how this anime would have represented Paula, Poo, Porky, and Giygas, had they shown up. One can only imagine (and shudder/laugh).

Hey Mato, I think your News submission form is broken or something. I tried submitting this last night and it just said that it failed to send.

Anywho, I was surprised to suddenly have an EB reference staring me in the face from this most unexpected source. Very cool (if a little disturbing).

Mato said on Dec. 1, 2009

It’s strange, a few people have said they’ve had problems with the form lately but every time I try it works fine. I think it might be thinking some messages are spam messages on accident because of links (maybe too many links?) in the messages. Can you try sending one similar to what you did the other day and tell me what error it gives you?

kevinchai said on Dec. 1, 2009

I think it was a problem with the “attach file” button, seeing as I’ve submitted stuff fine before without attachments, but I wanted to include a screenshot with this one and it wouldn’t send. So, rather than upload the screenshots to some other site and link to them, I simply made a post about it in the forum.

Mato said on Dec. 1, 2009

Got your test file fine, seems to work. Dunno why it would work sometimes and not others. Maybe the site is haunted.

Roido said on Dec. 1, 2009

there is another small Earthbound reference in
The powerpuff girls Z
Loid appears as ken’s friend
oddly enough he appears with brown hair instead of Gray
i readed it on spanish wikipedia
Episode tittle “ken’s friend indeed”
mato could you please post it?

Jeeves said on Dec. 1, 2009

Mato, all it said was that is failed to send and to try contacting you another way. There was one link, which was the same crunchyroll link used in this news post. If the submission form doesn’t play nice with links…that’s not very good, since we wouldn’t be able to link to sources. :/

Put some underwear over that thing, Starman (you’ll be more attractive at the beach.)

And Mr. Saturn… you’re not a Magypsy. You can only fly with red balloons, and birds.

Here is the youtube link of the video with English subtitles http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRsssSZLhQA

motherfan said on Dec. 3, 2009

I found the starman more disturbing than the Mr. Saturn. I think he’s having some…issues. Major issues.

Sam said on Dec. 4, 2009

TEDDY? 1:00
Anyhow, this is amazing.

Isn’t Ken the name for Ninten in the Japanese novel? That’s what I read in the current WIP translation, strangely enough!

Meyers said on Dec. 15, 2009

that damn reference is disgusting as f**k.

liltydude said on Dec. 20, 2009

This almost ruined EarthBound’s characters for me. 😡

Tetra said on Feb. 10, 2010

Mr. Saturn? O.o

giegue master said on Feb. 23, 2010

Wow ness and jeff look like girls, kings and cutie pie (never though i’d see the day) and the the star man is very CLEARLY a MALE.

thomas1up said on Aug. 4, 2011

As Giygas would say

“not right….not right….”
