  6. 1:14 Definitely a reference to a kaijuu from one of the Ultraman series but cannot find the exact monster from the silhouette. It kind of looks like Eleking from Ultraseven but the head is a little different.

  11. Most of Nyaruko's sneezes when she walks towards the Mi-Go are the name of several variants of the fighter craft in Macross.

    Also the ending credits is obviously a parody towards Kamen Rider Decade, given the build and card designs. However given the monster motif on the card it may have Kamen Rider Blade references as well (can someone confirm?).

    The part where the blade is ignited matches that of Space Sheriff Gavin when his LASER BLADE lights up.
    I'm also getting vibes from another Kamen Rider due to the poses but am uncertain about it

  15. The line about 'deculture' is a reference to Macross. The aliens in that were dazzled by music. At one point, these same aliens said, ''yack, deculture''.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. "Come to think of it, this huge living weapon that only knews of fighting lost any will to fight when it heard music for the first time"
      Probably another Macross reference.

    2. "Love heart to my chest too, Nyaruko!"
      "I will receive it head on, destiny!"
      Reference to the lyrics of Totsugeki Love Heart, a song from Macross 7.

      Delete
    3. @Anon 3:25:
      Yes, definitely. The "huge living weapon" refers to the Zentraedi, a race of giant humanoid aliens who know nothing but war, yet will falter when faced with culture (e.g.: music).

      Man, and I just marathoned Macross last week!

      P.S.: Can anyone confirm the name of the seiyuu/voice actor who voiced the "Boss Mi-go"? His speech pattern reminded me of Quamzin Kravshera (his usage of the term "yaru-domo" to refer to his underlings). I have this wild hunch he previously voiced a Zentraedi character in Macross... (Feel free to joss or confirm.)

  18. In the episode, you can see the characters だが断 ("But I ref-") on Kuuko's shirt. This is most likely a reference to Rohan Kishibe's famous line from Diamond is Unbreakable.

  19. The name of the next episode "A Certain Camping House of Evil Spirits" (とあるキャンプの悪霊の家, To aru Kyanpu no Uchiro no Ie) is a reference to A Certain Magical Index (とある魔術の禁書目録, To aru Majutsu no Indekkusu) and A Certain Scientific Railgun (とある科学の超電磁砲, To aru Kagaku no Reerugan).

  22. @14.05 Those are the lyrics from "totsugeki love heart" (macross 7):
    Omae no mune ni mo love heart
    massugu uketomete destiny

    And this is what Kuuko says.
    Watashi no mune ni mo love heart
    massugu uketomete destiny.

  24. 16:51 Phalanx,Armored,Super and Fire are all Valkyrie Variant in Macross.
    Phalanx are Destroid Phalanx.
    Armored and Super are Both Valkyrie pack.
    Fire are referencing Basara's Fire Valkyrie.
    Not Sure about Work type, if I remember correctly, there is Civilian use Valkyrie after Space War I for transporting stuff or just for defending city.
    maybe I'm wrong and biased towards Macross.

  26. 0:40 and 20:43 respectively "このニャルコ一生の不覚。" (This Nyaruko, failure of a lifetime) possible reference to Damaramu in Dragon Half manga/anime? He has a habit of saying "ダマラム一生の不覚" for pretty much any failure of his (and Nyaruko did say this twice during the course of the episode).

    A reference clip of him saying it twice within the minute: http://youtu.be/4je-ie0BgHg?t=1m50s

  27. Around 6.07 should be a Monster Hunter reference to Gold Rathian

  28. I admit this is just a "maybe", but Nyarko's sneeze of "Foundation!" may be a reference to the film Shin Kamen Rider: Prologue, where Foundation was the name of the evil organization that was experimenting on people like protagonist Shin Kazamatsuri.
