I said that, I see the Mamoru one with the hair and face, I think the brown hair one must be Usagi.

Have not seen the ep in question but if you're going to say someone looks like Usagi they better come closer to this.

The female character to me looks more like Tenten from Naruto with glasses.

The Misato reference is obvious, her pendant isnt the same i guess beacuse SPS could possibly get sued if they use an exact character model that's the property of another company.
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

I'm pretty sure they're protected under parody. The "Imaginationland" episodes had a whole truckload of copyrighted characters appearing onscreen.

And lest you forget, this same episode featured Stop Touching Me Elmo, which I'm pretty sure was not a PBS-approved cameo.

Also in the preview of episode 2 in the English dub of Welcome to the NHK
Satou tells Hitomi-sempai that he "Mustn't run away" she replies to him by saying
"What are you stupid?"

Not sure if this has been posted before, but here's what I believe to be a reference to EoE in the original Hunter x Hunter anime:

The resemblance is pretty striking IMO:

Nisekoi ep 15

(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)

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.

Super behind on season 2, but Dandy crucified, Tree of Life in the BG, and the red fluid/patterns/whatever nail it.

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.

This view includes trees and a slight fog.

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