Eye Say: Anime Cameos

You know what I’d like to see more of? More anime cameos. I love it when a character from a completely different and irrelevant anime shows his or her face in another anime. I mean, take Hayate no Gotoku for example. When Nabeshin had a cameo in one episode (episode 32) of the first season, it was the best day of my life (except for October 27, 2004).

YES!

All I’m saying is that I would like to so more cameos. And just to make things clear, any cameo must include all of the following things:

  • The character must make a visual appearance.
  • The character must be voiced by the same seiyu that did his or her voice in the character’s original anime.
  • The character performing the cameo must have a speaking part.
  • The character performing the cameo must be present in a scene with characters from the present anime (ie, don’t just throw in a character from another anime before and after commercial breaks, or in a random scene that has nothing to do with the present anime).
  • This last one is optional, but the character could voice opinions that relate to their show (Ex: Edward Elric could talk about Alchemy or being short).

Here are some suggestions:

Osaka from Azumanga Daioh in pretty much anything.

Osaka would be a great cameo character.

Osaka would be a great cameo character. She one of those characters that can say or do pretty much anything and be funny. She’s so dumb (in a good way). Speaking of “in a good way”

Motsu & that furry thing from Negima!?

Motsu anddddd ????

I can’t remember the name of the fluffy cat (or whatever it is) but this tandem is destined for cameo performances. Just add them in anywhere and have Motsu say “In a good way.” and it’s golden. “In a good way.” is probably my favorite repetitive one liner from any anime.

Nagato from Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu

Yuki is awesome.

Let’s face it, who wouldn’t want to see her step in during a scene of pretty much anything and say something logical with her emotionless voice? She’s awesome.

Eye rest my case.
