No really.

If you haven't already seen this floating around the internet just yet, apparently in the 5th episode of "The Unlimited Hyobu Kyosuke", expys of both The Nostalgia Critic and the Angry Video Game Nerd can be seen for a brief second.

Don't believe me? Our very own JesuOtaku got it all on video.

Even though it's only one line, I really do think that if this anime ever gets licensed and dubbed, whoever dubs it should totally bring Doug in to record for his character.

Heck, I'd be willing to contribute to a Kickstarter fund just to make it happen. Laughing

Yeah, I think that's undeniably them. Could be an easter egg from an animator. It's not like Danny Choo's original character donut steel being added to Mayo Chiki where he probably knew people from JCStaff. Apparently AVGN got popular on NicoNico at some point, and maybe his NC feud carried over as well?

Good thing Doug reconsidered and didn't kill off the NC and blow that 200,000 dollars making absolute shit.

It was that or get a real job after his thing tanked. "Artistic integrity" doesn't pay the bills, after all.

Anyway, yeah, an animator slipping in a cameo character in a background shot is pretty common.

Is that so? Guess that would explain this lol.

Still, even though I know a lot of Doug's fans are anime fans, I never imagined this happening in a million years.

Kinda makes we wish I was already watching the show so I could have been surprised on my own lol

Yeah I read about this on Japanator. That was quite surprising, I didn't know AVGN has a following in Japan.

Maybe hopefully, AVGN could have a Japanese language version for the Japanese audience. I hope maybe AVGN could create a section dedicated to Japanese pop culture in response for making a Japanese language version of AVGN. Also AVGN coincidentally did a Cinemassacre's Godzillathon on Youtube which tend to get hilarious.
