Okay, I just spent a large chunk of my day watching Abenobashi, so, here's what I came out with....

Episode 3 has two that I can come out with. First, Sasshi is standing in front of a pyramid , and there is Unit-01's head on the middle (3rd) tier of the pyramid.

Image

Secondly, as has been pointed out, the battle theme from Eva is playing in the background during the mecha battle.

Episode 8 had Sasshi's sister (who already looks a lot like Rei) dressed as student Rei from the end of 26, plus she was running down the street shouting "I'm late, I'm late!" She even had a piece of bread in her mouth.

Image

There were also several times in the series where I could hear some music that I know was used in Eva playing in the background.




As for the Keroro Gunsou (Sgt. Frog), my brother has the mangas with the Eva references. If I can get my scanner working, I could provide the pictures.

In episode 13 of Gurren Lagann, the Beastmen "skulls" at the end of the ep look suspisiously like the generic angel face used in the OP of eva, and elsewhere.

Has anyone done Onizuka's Seele-fetish yet?
If I have no soul to touch, no heart to love, no evil to rise up above
No angels and no ghosts, no real victories to toast
If you believe that this is true then I must ask;
to what end do you proceed?

Yes, yes it is.

On that note, there are indeed several Eva references in Zim. One of which (i don't think anyone said this) is in the episode "The Most Horrible X-Mas Ever" when Santa and the Anti-Santa Robot are fighting. The 'choreography' of the fight is highly reminiscent of Eva battles, and, even more obvious, Zim slips into the Santa-Suit's inner fluid. LCL anyone? He becomes one with the suit, saying "The Santa has won." Great stuff...

If you have been watching Hayate no Gotoku! there have been a ton of Evangelion references in it lately.

So does anyone know of any American shows that have referenced NGE besides Invader Zim, One Hour Photo, and I think that episode of Justice League Unlimited? We know Jhonen Vasquez, Robin Williams and that Justice League guy are fans of Evangelion, but... you know... anyone else? XD

Hayate no Gotoku


OH, that's where the weird huro sukebe-isu pic is from! (lol THAT BOARD)

Sergent Frog anime has two references I know of: One when the character done by Akira Ishida infiltrates their HQ or whatever it is ala Kaworu descending into Terminal Dogma as Ode To Joy plays and another with a messed up combo of Ideon, Eva and some other thing occurs when Hallelujah Chorus plays as a GNR "I'm probably the fourth. I am not your doll." wants to cause March Impact.

Good stuff. ;)

Jhonen specifically mentions that cut in the commentary for that episode as an Eva reference.

Not that important but here:
I like watching Japanese and korean tv shows, and recently i've stumbled upon one funny tv show--has ended now--, that often used Eva music in the background. An example:

Well... Yuki Nagato (Haruhi) and Rei Ayanami are pretty similar... but there's also Itsuki Koizumi and Kaworu Nagisa.

Does anyone have a scan of this (compiling a references to Eva page at the FGP)?

And the program that Nanvel ran on the console to start it up was the NGE episodes listing.

Can anyone provide screenshots of these 2 instances?

If you give me a couple days I can get a scan from my manga. I have to find it first though.

It shouldn't be too hard as I think it's part of the chapter where Naru gets a job as a teacher. And the reason it is in their is because Keitaro is imagining all the different things she could be off doing before he finds out she is teacher. Naturally a cosplay cafe came to his mind. :lol:
