I remember an episode in Servant x Service where Chihaya had Snk cosplay uniform hanging up next to Monogatari school uniform worn by Hitagi and that dress Menma wears.

If I remember correctly Izaya Orihara -not sure if thats how its spelled- appears in an episode of Baka and Test buying icecream. Or it's just a back round character that is nearly identical to him.

Gintama and Jojo do a fantastic job with references, especially in Stardust Crusaders.

Gintama is the easy winner just because of the sheer number of episodes.

I think One Piece has a really good reference to other things (not necessarily other anime, but other literary works, people, history etc).

From memory, since I watched those 500+ episodes like a long time ago...

So the Lightning God guy... he's actually from a Japanese folktale... (I knew this because I was watching an anime on CR called Japanese folktale and that picture of a Lightning God came up and it looked exactly like him... with the drums and stuff).
If there's one thing I love about One Piece is its incredible references to other things... and the author's ability to mesh it together into one whole story.



Don't forget! Eneru is also based upon Eminem, the raper, whom oda is apparently a fan. Visual and character inspirations.

Franky is rather obviously Ace Ventura, no doubt about it. Both Hair and attitude.

Don't forget the Rocky Horror picture show based Ivankov, obviously a reference to Dr frank-n-furter played by Tim Curry.

And, does this picture remind you of any old Martial arts masters who used a fake name to the enter tournaments?

I started watching Gintama because of this thread. I'm dying. This show is hilarious.
