Anime Influences on TV and at the Movies

posted on by Christopher Macdonald
Two readers have written to inform us about Anime "cameos" in "One Hour Photo" and "Everwood."

Ryan Zetlin writes us about One Hour Photo:

According to a few moviegoers who saw "One Hour Photo" staring Robin
Williams, there are several scenes in the movie where anime references are
made.

There's a kid who ask for an Evangelion Figure.

There's another kid who shows off his Zaku II [from Gundam] master grade model.

There's a bunch of Hello Kitty plushes scattered through a few scenes.

Is anime finally infiltrating into Hollywood?



Meanwhile, David Simoneaux has this to say about Everwood:

If you caught the season premiere of Everwood on the WB network on Monday, you would have been pleased to see a main character played by Gregory Smith, who loves Anime and Manga. In one scene, the teenager sports a Ranma 1/2 T-shirt. Later he has a dream sequence where he discussed the beauty of Manga to a potential girlfriend. He also has dyed hair ranging from purple to red.
