Otaku References for EP18
Unhide to Read
Konata's grade school aspirations
: Vet and lawyer
Possible manga/game inspirations:
Manga - "
" (Animal Doctor)
(Phoenix Wright I) for the GBA, 2001
The light novel Kagami forced Konata to read:
君の居た昨日、僕の見る明日１ －STARTING BELL－
" (The Yesterday of Your Existence, The Tomorrow that I see - Starting Bell)
When Konata said "I have not reached that level yet" in response to Kagami, it's a reference to
KyoAni's Yamakan Resignation Announcement
, which stated the exact same words: "まだその域に達していないので"
Yamakan self-portrait, taken from his mixi page:
Konata vs Nanako
This scene parodies the "
" (Super Robo Taisen W) game for DS. The two robots are: ARX-7 Arbalest and Venom Plan-1058 Codarl-M from Full Metal Panic!
Girls Chasing Each Other in the Rain
The girls in the rain are two characters from "
" ( Munto 2: Beyond the Walls of Time OVA). The first girl is Suzume, and the chasing gilr is Ichiko.
This is also a Yamakan anime.
The manga Tsukasa's reading is "ラグーンエンジン" (Lagoon Engine) volume 5.
Since Hiyori's automated response to "攻め" (seme, "aggresor" in BL), is "受け" (uke, "receiver" in BL), she is a certified 腐女子 (Fujoshi).
The Nagano Fujoshi Sisters Otaku Idol Group:
Japan's Three Major Holy Sites
According to Patty, it's not Kamakura, Kyoto, or Nara, but Akibahara (Tokyo),
(Osaka), and Oosu (Nagoya). Plus Nagano and Kichigyoji as the local Tokyo semi Holy Sites.
Nipponbashi DenDen Town
Hiyori's Manga Collection
Some books on Hiroyi-chan's bookshelf. Boy she has some good seinen taste!
" (Kaikan (Sensual) Phrase)
" (Sanctuary) [COOL!]
" (Shota no Sushi) [My favorite cooking manga/dorama]
Otome Road and K-books
Patty the gaijin otaku was actually giving a tour information to two local girls about the famous
in Ikebukuro. She offered all the important info so I won't repeat it. Like Tora no Ana at Akiba,
at Otome Road is where the hardcore gather for their doujin needs.
