Did you love watching Space Patrol Luluco? This wacky show was made by Studio Trigger and they’ve hidden some references to their previous works within the show. Here’s a list of some of Space Patrol Luluco’s hidden (or not so hidden) Easter eggs!
**WARNING: There are spoilers ahead for Space Patrol Luluco**
There’s quite a few references to Studio Trigger’s inferno Cop. Chief Over Justice is constantly burning with a purple flame, quite similar to Inferno Cop’s burning skull. Check out some of their similarities:
Oreki from Hyouka is all of us in the morning time. Well at least the non-morning types that take time to get up. If you feel the same way, you’re going to love these relatable GIFs. And if you feel these GIFs so strongly, you’re going to want to pick up Hyouka on Blu-ray/DVD parts 1 & 2 (subbed AND dubbed)!
Are spy gadgets your go-to gimmick? Are clandestine motives on your mind? Then you should definitely check out Joker Game! Inspired by real stories from World War II, the show demonstrates legitimate spy techniques—a few of which we’ll share with you here. Learn them well, you never know when these skills could come in handy.
This form of communication uses patterns of dots and dashes or short and long sounds to indicate letters of the alphabet. Often transmitted using a telegraph device, the code can also be communicated through clicks, beeps, flashing lights, or whatever tools are handy. Start memorizing those dits and dahs!
Invented in the 1920s by Arthur Scherbius, this encryption machine looks like a typewriter and uses several rotors to scramble communications. The receiver must know the exact settings of these rotors to reconstruct what is written. Quick to adopt this tool, the Germans used it to confuse their enemies prior to the war. (Joker Game, Episode 7)
There are many ways to disguise oneself, such as stuffing cotton in the mouth to make the face look rounder (Joker Game, Episode 3). This can counter a person’s memorable features, like an angular jawline. But remember the number one rule—the disguise should never make the spy stand out.
There are two types of concealment devices: active and passive. The active ones do more than hide things, such as an umbrella with a hollowed-out handle that holds messages (Joker Game, Episode 8). Passive concealment is like a book with a hole cut into the pages for storing a camera. Both are effective so long as the object appears to be normal.
Spies aren’t known to work together, but many networks rely on sleeper agents for assistance in critical moments. These people infiltrate the enemy country and remain there for many years, blending in and never communicating with their sponsor. Then, when another spy is in a predicament, a sleeper may be called upon to take action (Joker Game, Episode 5).
When it comes down to it, a disguise is only as good as its ability to mimic other cultures, and a decoded message is just words without a plan to action. The spies at D-Agency trained hard to become masters of espionage, and their stories of blending in and outsmarting enemies are what make Joker Game such an incredible show.
We’re welcoming the new year with great titles! From the long-awaited titles like My-Hime and Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches to heavy-hitters like Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, we don’t think you’ll have many objections to what’s coming out. Check out the full list of titles below:
While the phantoms in Myriad Colors Phantom World may not be real, the psychology is! Check out our in-depth look into the visual perception phenomena that main character Haruhiko Ichijo talks about.
Ever wondered why your brain sees either a vase or two faces? Well, first your brain tries to interpret the basic visual input such as color and form, groups them together, and then identifies edges. Your brain then tries to determine which is the object and which is the ground—like the foreground or background of the image. Depending on how your brain interprets the edges, you’ll see either a vase or two faces first!
When you look at these arrows, they may appear to be different sizes, but in reality—they’re the same! Due to the angles of the arrows—one set drawn inward and the other outward—your brain judges the depth differently at first look. But really, they’re all the same.
Checker Shadow Illusion
Looking at these checkers, you’d think A and B were two totally different colors. But by observing the object in the corner, you can see that there’s a shadow being casted over B. Though it appears darker, it’s still the same color. Because your mind sees B casted in shadow next to A, which is not, it concludes that B is a completely different color.
The Ebbinghaus Illusion takes advantage of your depth perception by surrounding two same-sized circles with differently sized circles. Because one has larger circles surrounding it, the middle seems smaller than the one surrounded by smaller circles. This is simply because of their size relative to the objects around them. Your brain interprets them as different because the juxtaposition of the circles is different.
This is a fun technique often used with Instagram photos, filmmaking, tourism shots (like the Leaning Tower of Pisa), architecture, and maybe you’ve even used it for a certain Attack on Titan contest! This optical illusion makes an object appear farther away, closer, larger, or smaller than it actually is. It manipulates your visual perception with objects of varying scale, and the vantage point of the camera.
In this version of White’s illusion, this optical trickery uses red blocks covered with yellow and blue stripes to form another color-changing illusion. The blue stripes blocking the red causes your brain to see the rectangle as lighter due to the contrast of the colors. And when blocked by the yellow stripes, the colors appear darker due to the reverse contrast.
Simultaneous Contrast Illusion
Similar to the Ebbinghaus Illusion, this visual phenomenon uses the power of contrasting colors to trick your mind. The colors in the middle are all the same, but due to the brighter or more dynamic colors surrounding each one, your eyes see different shades, and sometimes completely different colors! Like the Ebbinghaus, this illusion could work with black, white, and gray.
What if you could write a letter to your past self that could change your life? Would you do it? What would it say? Would it be a warning or a letter of approval? These are some of the big questions asked in Orange, which comes out on October 17th on Blu-ray/DVD.
Below we have some letter excerpts from the Orange voice actors Micah Solusod (Kakeru), Jill Harris (Naho), and Jeannie Tirado (Takako) to their past selves!
From Micah Solusod (Kakeru):
