Nisekoi ep 15

Image

(Actually the elevator scene in wrongly chosen as the position of characters in the frame is clearly taken from Rei Shinji elevator scene in ep 15, not Asuka Rei scene from ep 22)
ran1: Oh gosh this sentence gave me an internet boner. You're so tsundere.
Mugwump: Goddamn it, Xard! Take me in your arms, you magnificent sex god bastard!
And don't forget to wear the Ran mask.
Eva Yojimbo: You really are the Otaku equivalent of a Catholic and Jew rolled up into one giant dakimakura of guilt.
Gob Hobblin: Sanctimonious, subtly racist, vaguely misogynist, somehow says something while at the same time saying...nothing, really, at all....

Nice, Xard. That's nice.

I'll find a screenshot later, but there's a slew of Eva references in Haganai where Rika starts babbling about her hentai mecha scenario. Lots of A.T. Field references, entry plugs, and plugsuits.

The first panel strikes me more as a FMA reference.

Second one is obviously Gendo.

Probably nothing, but:

Image

A still-standing thin body mecha, with bilateral amputation of the arms, the head appears missing due to the screen cropping it out, and legs partially obscured by the terrain.

Image

This view includes trees and a slight fog.

EDIT: Seems someone already thought the design hallmarked back to EVA-01.

And the mecha is black and white, that's important too.

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

There are a couple of references this week. The first is from I Can't Understand what My Husband is Saying where they do a rendition of the Congratulations scene. The second reference vito mentioned in the anime watching thread, but I'll also include it here. Today's episode of Shirobako had Aoi meet a man who is clearly intended to be Anno. He looks the same as him, does Ultraman poses, and while I have no means to confirm it, it really does sound like Anno did the voice himself. Again, I can't confirm if it's his voice. But it's still pretty cool.
