Post References to other games/anime/manga?
Was running through the flavor text for some furniture/items and ran across the good old Chrono Trigger Enertron reference.

The Hibernation beds item has the description, "...But, they still leave you hungry"

The Cactus Figure "Has exactly 1,000 needles" No guesses needed here, good old FF Cactuars and their well known 1,000 needles skill.

The Rocket Glove weapon is pretty much a staple of any old Super Robot style series, the most popular probably being Mazinger Z.

There's probably more somewhere~ ^^

Edit: Changed the title of the thread to be more relevant. Somehow forgot you can reference anime/manga too....

Although it's a bit harder to figure out, I like the "A Certain Railgun" furniture, with the description "Attracts frogs for some reason".

Anyone ever watch To Aru Kagaku no Railgun? (A Certain Scientific Railgun)

Bear in mind that all the flavour was put in by Aroduc because of epic fail on Eushully's part (see this post for why).

Personally, I think Aroduc has done an amazing job - after reading his translation notes (and admittedly not knowing Japanese and thus being unable to play the game as it was originally), it looks like he's actually made the game better. You can't ask for more, really.

I like point seven the most <3

I mean...

Well, then let's see if we can find all the little odds and ends Aroduc so graciously put in for us <3

No, most of the references are actually there in the original game.

Fruit Box: Not for espionage.
Broom: Does not have a hidden sword.
Majong table: Try to win with a Rinshan Kaihou.
Magic Mirror: Don't take advice from mirrors.
Wonder Kitchen: For a true Iron Chef.

The Broom one I couldn't find, it's some reference to some old anime that I can't find. Could be Lupin III, but... I don't think that's it. Majong might be from Saki, but that might be over-analyzing it.
