Kare Kano & Pom Poko

Postby 68 neko » Mon 11.19.2007 4:44 am

In the Kare Kano anime, there is a scene where Miyazawa keeps a baby picture of Arima. In return she gives him a picture of herself as a child, dressed like a peasant apparently shoveling something with a basket-like object. This is followed by the sound of a flushing toilet which implies that Arima is getting the short end of the deal. In Pom Poko, there is a scene where the tanukis are celebrating and one of them is dressed as a peasant shoveling something just like in Miyazawa's photograph. What is the significance of this image?

Can you provide a link to an image online somewhere? These descriptions aren't helping me.

I think Porn Poko is doing a spoof on the Kare Kono anime. Japanese anime do this quite frequently. Where they take a "memorable scene" in one anime, then play it into the new anime. or, maybe it's the tanukis that are getting the short end of the deal.. who knows.

Otherwise I have no idea is there is any significance at all.

Maybe the significance is that... peasants indicate poorness and aren't very exciting? Your wording is kind of hard to understand, for some reason...

Ah! Now I know I'm not the only one who tends to read m as rn!
Sometimes I think that I'm afraid of thinking, and that scares me.

Do you know any other things that animes have made a spoof of? I haven't really noticed anything, but I haven't seen too much anime to know...
