Steven Universe, Regular Show, and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic have all referenced Eva in the course of one year. I guess that just means the people who grew up with the show are finally making their own cartoons.

Weird how this one got a front page mention and not the others, though.

I/whoever else was doing the Twitter at the time had no idea about the others. These references need to be pointed out in-thread, I guess.

If more people want to help with the front/news page, we could use it though :nyao:

I noticed the baby ducks thing. They posted it on ANN. It got a chuckle out of me but dang was the animation terrible. Ed Edd & Eddy looks like Akira in comparison. Man, has cartoon network gone downhill since I was a kid.

I'm not really sure if this has been mentioned yet, but one of the Mii Gunner's special moves in SSB4 is basically to put up an AT Field that deflects projectiles:

I always thought I might be bad
Now I know that it's true
Because I think you're so good
And I'm nothing like you

The Adventure Time season finale was EoE-lite. Probably unintentional, though.

Hilarious coincidence or deliberate homage in Transformers?

I'm currently watching the latest Transformers series, Robots in Disguise, which is not to be confused with the ultra-crappy Robots in Disguise from 2001. Yes, there have now been so many Transformers series that they've started recycling the names of earlier series instead of coming up with new ones. Anyway, in episode 4, there's a red Decepticon... WITH FOUR EYES. As soon as I saw this, I thought "What the hell is Nigouki doing in a Transformers show?"

So... do you think this is a coincidence, or a deliberate homage?

EDIT: said Decepticon can split up into five or so robot spider thingies. It made me immediately think of Matarael. Also, I always knew Asuka was a Decepticon.

EDIT 2: Dude, my post doesn't belong here because it's not a confirmed homage. It could just as easily be a weird coincidence.

I went ahead and merged your thread with the existing references and homages thread.

Also, do you happen to have a screencap that shows the Decepticon's face? Would be much easier to confirm or deny if we could see it.

Has it already been mentioned that Hei Ba the panda spirit in Avatar The Last Airbender was inspired by the Mass Evas?

I'm currently on my Linux machine, and I'm still pretty clueless about how to use it. I'll see what I can do.

EDIT: hell, I'll do better than a screenshot and just let you watch the whole damn episode: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2mq8jd

And no, I'm not referring to the crab Decepticon who gets taken out in the first four minutes.

EDIT 2: if you don't want to watch the episode... Image

While maybe not a reference/homage, this scene from the new Harlock manga immediately reminded me of the Arael sequence in Ep.22

Is Lilith's mask partly inspired by Dorok headdresses, perhaps?

The entire start of the first episode of that AoT junior high show is a shot for shot reference to the alternate reality from episode 26

Trigger sure love its Eva references, Ep 3 of Hackadolls is one big parody of episode 13.
Is the 3.0 spoiler policy gone?.... Cool, then I'm nominating myself as EvaGeeks 1# Sakura Suzuhara fan/nerd.

I mean, predictability is the central attraction and the narrative hook that we've all come to expect from the Evangelion franchise. How come Anno can't realize this? Twice? - FreakyFilmFan4ever

Not just the Spear, but Ayanami too? And lots of other familiar anime faces!

I think this is from a few weeks back, probably around Halloween. Saw it on Sailormoon Reddit.
