In bizarre Easter egg news, during episode 5 of Zettai Karen Children: Unlimited, the following figures popped up in a pan across the screen:
Huh? Are those internet personalities James Rolfe (the Angry Video Game Nerd) and Doug Walker (the Nostalgia Critic)? Both have a tendency to show up at anime conventions in the US, despite not having much to do with anime (let’s face it, US anime conventions are really just internet meme conventions), but the notion that animators in Japan (or, possibly Korea) are even aware of them is surprising to say the least. Is this a ploy to get Americans to watch Zettai Karen Children (or, as we call it, for the sake of not sounding creepy, Psychic Squad)? If so, I guess I’m okay with it.
