Let’s play “Name the Shout Outs”.
#1. Bandai WonderSwan Color.
Funnily enough, the real life handheld didn’t feature any dating simulation games. If it did, they would be horribly pixelated.
And, despite the episode claiming to take place in the world of a dating simulation game (most obviously, Tokimeki Memorial.), it also took a lot of aspects from…
#2. Visual Novels
[calm voice] Title of game.
#3. Haruhi Suzumiya
Endless Eight, Ryoko Asakura, and God Knows.
#4. Guilty Gear
A very fitting role for a trap.
Problem is, unlike Bridget, I cannot feel gay for Hastur.
#5. King of Fighters
Kuuko as Mai Shiranui. If Mai had twintails, everything in the world would be perfect…
#6. Virtua Fighter
No, Nyaruko wasn’t Chun-Li from Street Fighter. She was Pai Chan from Yu Suzuki iconic fighting game. Not to mention, my favorite fighting game.
In other news, the kiss scene in this episode made me happy.
