AVGN and Nostalgia Critic Cameo in "The Unlimited: Hyobu Kyosuke"

The Angry Video Game Nerd and the Nostalgia Critic appear in 5th episode cameo

For those of you watching the Zettai Karen Children spinoff The Unlimited: Hyobu Kyosuke, the 5th episode may have given you cause to pause and do a double take, as it seems that the show's producers snuck in a cameo by well-known web television personalities The Nostalgia Critic and Angry Video Game Nerd, who were featured in the foreground during the fifth episode, as seen below.

Apparently, not only are the personalities well known on the English-speaking internet, they have also garnered a cult following among Japanese NicoNico Douga otaku, who take selected reviews from each respective personality and sub them into Japanese in order to better understand their takes on games and film respectively.

 

As expected, this created quite a stir when it was first pointed out by the Twitter account of OguieManiax scribe @SDshamshel, and his subsequent post on the occurence drew the attention of the Nostalgia Critic himself on his Facebook page.

 

For all of you reading this, can any of you remember any other anime series in the past or present which inserts obvious cameos to real-life personalities?
