I saw what you did there, Shaft

Hey, it’s Motsu!

This weeks Natsu no Arashi makes me wonder if I’ve really been paying enough attention to the show. Yukkuri and minor cameo aside, I thought that Shaft were laying off doing too many of their usual, self-referential, wacky anime-reference hijinks. Then I saw the first five minutes of episode 9…


…with the hastily re-coloured cast of Saki…


… and the cast of Hidamari Sketch (that’ll keep Author happy, at least)…


… and Hinako…


… and the re-coloured cast of K-On (and Pani Ponis Meso-Usa)…


… and some characters from Maria Holic…


… and, most importantly, Yayoi, Miki, Takane and Hibiki from iDOLM@STER (SP).

Plus a few more I didn’t recognise. The Ark clearly has really, really amazing customer turn-over…

-update- Oh, I forgot to mention this one since I didn’t take a screen grab of it, but the 8-bit game that they see in 1985 is also the same game that Asuna buys in Negima!? – or at least they’ve reused the game footage ^^;
