Here is more Random Anime Trivia!


The creators of Yu Yu hakusho (Yoshihiro Togashi) and sailor moon (Takeuchi Naoko) are married, and Koenma dresses up as tuxedo mask?

I added their names XD

I don't remember Koenma dressing up as Tuxedo Mask and I do remember Kurama saying "Just call me Tuxedo Mask" in one of the manga volumes.

Yu Yu Hakusho:

The wedding reception of Takeuchi and Yoshihiro was co-hosted by Kotono Mitsuishi, the seiyū of Usagi (Sailor Moon), and Nozomu Sasaki, a seiyū in Yu-Yu

When Yu Yu Hakusho was still running in Japan, it was second behind Dragonball Z in popularity.

Kurama was the most popular anime character in Japan for two years. He beat out the extremely popular Goku from Dragonball fame.

Kuwabara's name is a combination of two of Yoshihiro Togashi's favorite baseball players.

In the final episode of the series, two of Keiko's classmates bear strong resemblances to Haruka Tenoh (Sailor Uranus) and Michiru Kaioh (Sailor Neptune)

Ouran High School Host Club:

Edward Elric of Fullmetal Alchemist makes a cameo in episode 16, in the form of a ball Hikaru is showing Haruhi.

Death Note:

Light and L are supposed to be polar opposites, so much so that when they use computers, L uses a Mac and Light uses a PC.


Most of the Japanese voice cast of Naruto also works in the Japanese dub of "24" - For some reason I found this very amusing XD

Konohamaru, Udon and Moegi make a guest appearance in the american show on Toonami, Ben Ten in the final 2 minutes of episode 30 "Merry Christmas".

The Great Naruto Bridge is an actual bridge built between the Japanese islands Honshu and Shikoku. The Naruto Strait, which it is built across, is also
famous for the many whirlpools that appear in it when the tide goes out.

New Regency Drops Voltron Film, Relativity May Pick Up
posted on 2008-08-18 02:11 EDT

Forbidden Kingdom's
negotiates to produce on smaller budget


The Variety
entertainment news
that New Regency, a production company based at Fox, no longer has plans for the live-action Voltron film project, while another company, Ryan Kavanaugh's
Relativity Media, is negotiating to pick up the project. If Relativity Media signs onto the remake of the 1980s animated robot series, it will finance
and produce the film with a lower budget and the use of technologies similar to those used in Zack Snyder's adaptation of
Frank Miller
's 300 comic. Relativity Media produced or co-produced over fifty projects in the last three years, including Ghost Rider, The Forbidden Kingdom, and Wanted.

in April of 2007 that New Regency was negotiating for the rights to the project from the
Mark Gordon
Company, which is still involved with producers Mark Gordon and Jordan Wynn. The newspaper now reports that New Regency never completed the deal and could
not reach an agreement with Voltron's Japanese rights holders. These talks began before the live-action
film earned the fifth highest worldwide
box office
take of 2007, and before
Warner Brothers
for the rights to another American adaptation of Japanese robots,

If the Voltron project still goes forward, executive producer Bryan Zuriff and the other staffers will select a director by next week. Justin Marks (He-Man,
Green Arrow) already wrote a script that resets the Lion Voltron story, which was based on the
King of Beasts Golion
anime, in post-apocalyptic New York City and Mexico after an alien invasion.

Thank you to Daniel Zelter for the news tip.
