"Eromanga Sensei" Flame On "Sword Art Online" Proves To Be Too Hot For Anime

Still, the anime might have gotten the last laugh

You may have noticed that the recent Eromanga Sensei episode 8, "Dreaming Sagiri and Summer Fireworks," worked in a few cameos from its Dengeki family. Kuroneko from sibling series Oreimo popped in for a bit of an interview. Then, discussing her dream-goal, author-character Elf Yamada let it rip on the publisher. 


Sword Art Online author Reki Kawahara explained on Twitter that originally this was more expicit in its name-dropping. First bit to go, much to Eromanga/Oreimo author Tsukasa Fushimi's regret, was a "That damn Reki... he's grown up a bit" comment.


That said, the anime might have gotten the last laugh. Look over Kirito's shoulder. That robot-looking fellow is Tin Writer, the character that Kawahara voiced in Accel World.
