Trigger shows have a ton of cartoon + other references. From the old days they were in Gainax till now. From movies like Romeo + Juliet (The Leonardo DiCaprio one), games and even cartoons like Tranformers + MLP. They have like dozens of reference in everything they make.

Technically game, but Guilty Gear is full of references to western rock and metal bands, to the point where one of the main characters is named after two ex-members of Helloween.

American culture in particular is relatively easy for them to stomach because burgers just so happen to have a lot of similar values to them, so we appear quirky, but not unnervingly foreign, as opposed to those spooky Norks which might /look/ sort of like em', but act like aliens in comparison.

Guilty Gear is a weird case. It's heavily inspired by Jojo (Sol has Jotaro's catchphrase, Everything about Zappa's design and Raoh, Robo-Ky has DAME DAME as MUDA MUDA, ect) which references western music, so Guilty Gear does the same in turn.

That said, Guilty Gear is a shitload more subtle about it than Jojo, with most of the references being in the names of the character's special moves (Millia's Iron Maiden, Bridget's Kickstart My Heart, ect)

Also, GG has referenced Dr. Who, The Ring, McDonalds, DBZ, Zorro, Hunger Games, and...Seinfield. The comedian, not the show.

Rent Relevator, finish the tutorial, then go into training and do all of Sol's missions. From there, pick a character that interests you, do their missions, then go online to get the shit kicked out of you by guys who've been playing since the dreamcast. Reason I say rent is because if you don't have the execution to do the combos, you'll have a real bad time.

Gainax/Trigger have a hard on for American culture. Pretty much every anime they done has at least 10+ references.
>>
>>78018731
Japan is clearly Piccolo. They're a bit weird and like to be left alone and always slightly resent the US.

Germany had a pretty bad history and almost destroyed the world and our allies, but now they're the most stable country in Europe and while they don't like to admit they have a bad past, they're working to try and be a better place.
>>
>>78024074

It'd be like pointing out western influences in Hellsing.

If I remember correctly, the story goes that there were two instances of this.
>First, the team that made Evangelion got SUPER fucking depressed during and after the production
>As a way to cheer themselves up, they ended up making FLCL while on drugs or some shit.

>Years later, TTGL was a huge sucess and everyone on the team was super happy
>They went on vacation, got totally wasted, and came up with the ideas for Panty and Stocking

They also have a weird obsession with Cowboys. Some Japanese tourists once approached my uncle working on his car because he was wearing a cowboy hat and boots.

They wanted to take a picture with him. They were 100% convinced they met a real cowboy.

Also, Detroit Metal City movie with fucking Gene Simmons in it.

>>78025036
The plots do not seem similar at all.

>>78024975
Even though the series content is nothing alike, I think the closest thing to The Flintstones are Doraemon or Gundam. They are all kids (family) shows loved by multiple generations and as socially accepted as they get.
