ITT: Western references in foreign animation
That face when you've become Anime.
Nyaruko: Crawling With Love.
Here's a recent one.
Japan watches Bob Ross dubbed into Japanese, how fucked up is that?
Picked out anything from my folder, didn't know.
Silverhawks pinball machine in an episode of Megazone 23.
Panthro in an episode of Bubblegum Crisis.
There was also this.
Doug Walker aka the Nostalgia Critic
Brief from Panty and Stocking
>Dressed like a discount gost buster
>Most of the enemies in the show are called "Ghosts"
Basically almost a quarter of the PSG jokes are references to western culture.
>Show is stylized after american cartoons, most notably PowerPuff Girls.
They also quote "feels lucky, Punk? Well, do ya?" From Dirty Harry
Have an episode called "Death Race 2010" in reference to Death Race 2000, and the year the show was aired
Episode "Sex and the Daten City" to reference sex and the city
Since theres too much to list, here is a good sum of it all:
That's not a random one, is the main thing. That's the founder of CLG, which is one of the biggest names in NA LoL, and one of the most popular NA teams in the east due to them moving to Korea for some time and playing in the tournaments over there.
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.
>tfw you will never have a qt witch GF that can turn into a cat in the blink of an eye.
That's cheating, the video was made of 100% references
>blink of an eye
That's why you'll never have a qt witch gf and why I have a harem of them. You didnt know witches turn into cats with the wiggle of their nose, not blink of an eye.
This is basic witch gf knowledge.
>The Nostalgia Critic AND the fucking AVGN.
Because USA and Japan are in an alliance.
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.
Thought it was a reference to District 9 before I saw the feed at the bottom.
is it an Alien/Promethius reference?
is it a MST3K reference?
is it both?
what would a dick do with two pairs of balls? What good would it be for them to be at both ends? why would science do this?
Pulp Fiction in Kill la Kill
Consider myself triggered.
The Unofficial Sentai Akibaranger is getting bullied by the Big, Bad American Power Rangers.
>The Power Rangers voice actors.
That whole scene was hilarious.
there's an episode of dragon ball where they copy an entire scene from twilight zone: the movie
also there's supaman and bubbles
Spoiler'd for obvious.
kill la kill yourself is a fuckin' reference: the animu
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.
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.
What, aside from Dracula?
How about the Harkonnen canon and pretty much any of the ending skits?
Well I don't have the page but one of the first pages in boku no hero academia where it talks about all the new heros that emerged you can clearly see the silhouettes of Spider-Man, Superman, Wolverine, and others
>mfw the reason I love jap cartoons is probably the western shows I grew up watching
Ponchi and Conchi were parodies of Ren and Stimpy
This one has a training montage with Rocky and Drunken Master scenes, and the Police Story song to boot.
Also, Detroit Metal City movie with fucking Gene Simmons in it.
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.
The Red Grasshopper, the Chapolin Colorado, on One Punch Man.
Who here knows him? Any br?
Fist of the North Star is just Japan's Mad Max. (1/2)
>El Chapulin Colorado is the original kamen rider
Matt and Trey returned the favor.
>El Chapulín Colorado
One Punch Man confirmed for based
He's a Mexican comedy chracter from the creators of El Chavo del Ocho
