You are not an anime character. silly Nobuo.

for anyone curious, this cameo comes from episode 7 of Kono Naka ni Hitori Imouto ga Iru.

:shock: :shock: :shock:

Is that Anime related to Akibarangers in any way? Because that's to damn uncanny for it to be a cowinkydink!

That's pretty funny. Thanks for sharing that, as well as where it came from. It's good fodder for the wiki trivia section

I totally wasn't paying attention to that. He's delivering a DNA test kit by the way.

welcome. I was catching up on anime today, saw the logo on the truck and sat bolt upright, then saw "Nobuo" and laughed.

From ANN, it's someone named Yuu.

I watched a few minutes of NakaImo but couldn't get into it personally. I think it's funny that the sister from Oreimo is also in this.

got a last name? I don't recall a yuu, but i could be forgetting someone. that, or she hasn't shown up yet.

shame you couldn't get into it. i find it enjoyable. especially since we're kept guessing who the sister is, and whether we've even seen her yet or not. we've had misunderstandings about who the sister is, and even people pretending to be her for various reasons. i have a theory, but still think i might be off.

and who does the OreImo sister play? I sadly haven't had time to watch OreImo yet.

Kirino is the vice-president. I wouldn't suggest this series to other people as must watch. It's okay but not the greatest series in the world.

I just figured out Hasake's character. She's the other member of the newspaper club (not the one in the trench coat).

oh, she's the blonde? awesome. and i understand it not being a must watch, but i'd still want people to at least give it a shot.

she is? awesome. so in episode 8 we have kirino yell at hakase for trying to take photos. that's neat.

It didn't strike me as anything more than a harem anime, so I was instantly turned off. I liked Oreimo because the being an otaku stuff came first.

So, Blu-Ray exclusive episode 13 of this was released subbed today, and it had a funny couple of scenes that seemed relevant here.

first the MC and one of the girls swing by a cafe that would make one think of "Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai" which had Hakase play the female lead, and in this cafe works the newspaper club, including the character voiced by hakase.

after that, they go to a cafe that is basically this world's version of Himitsukichi, including a cosplaying waitress, shelves full of sentai figures, one section of which looks kinda Akiba-ish with a guy and 4 girls with similar outfits, and a full size mannequin dressed kinda like Hurricane Red.
