Here's something else & equally bizarre:

Now, was it Gendo or Genma..? Image (From Ranma ?, season 7, episode 10.)

When was that Ranma ep made? I can only wonder if that spoof was intentional, since Ranma doesn't exactly take itself particularly seriously (though it's not an outright "spoof" anime a la Nadesico).

ANN Encyclopedia wrote:Ranma ? Vintage:
1989-04-15 to 1989-09-16 (Season 1, 18 episodes)
1989-10-20 to 1992-09-25 (Season 2 (Nettohen), 143 episodes)

If the similarity really is intentional (which I very much doubt), Anno was the copycat. Image

Then again, a connection between these two scenes is not utterly impossible - after all, the father-son relationship between Ranma and Genma is pretty f*cked up, especially in the episode in question. Oh dear, I'm getting these awful crossover ideas...

Gendo: "Gendo Ikari style special attack - The Cradle from Hell! C'mon Shinji, give your father a biiig hug!"
Shinji: "NooooooOOOOOOOOoooooooo!!!"

Kinda looks like Aoba after stealing one of Keel's backup visors.

And so Keel's true motives are revealed. To remainifest after instrumentality in the body of Aoba, his long term side dish. Kaworu it seems, was just anothe front!

It's the fanboy syndrome. It causes you to start seeing things.

Here's some new crap Reichu has dug up from those message boards of evil she frequently visits. Now, I need your help with these:

Ken Akamatsu clearly has a some sort of plug-suit fetish. Does anybody know which volume of Love Hina this is from?

Another moment of shameless Gainax self-advertising from He Is My Master. Two questions:
- What episode is this scene from?
- What characters do we have here?

upper-left row: I have no idea.
middle-left: Izumi, Mitsuki and Anna, from HiMM, of course Image
lower-left: Mayumi, Misato, Asuka, Hikari
upper-right: Mamimi from FLCL (?), Noriko from Gunbuster, Nono and Chiko from Gunbuster 2
middle-right: ???, Mahoro, Minawa, ???
lower-right: Nadia, that chick from Kare Kano (haven't seen that show), Rei (or maybe RIAO), Arumi from Abenobashi (haven't seen it either)

That can't be from Akamatsu! The imitation must've been the other way around. Besides, doesn't Kanako like to dress up as other people anyway?

Those are the girls from Petite Princess Yucie, a charming series supervised by Anno with one of the most sickeningly infectious theme songs ever. Seriously, I can't stop singing it.

Being a picture of Kanako, there are only so many places it could be, but I can't find it. I think I also remember Naru wearing Asuka's plugsuit at some point.

Wow does Haman look different with long hair.
That looks even more like the plug-suits original designs...

Haman is very good looking in her early years. How else could Char have an affair with herImage Once she got older Char hated herImage

Reminds me of a scene with Quess...
