It’s pretty obvious that Akane Maniax is an amalgam of elements from various anime, and as I was wondering why I was watching it in the first place, I was pretty impressed to see the following scene where Gouda bursts into the room shouting, “Teian ga arimasu!” (I have a proposal!)

Gouda bursting in room shouting -Teian ga arimasu!- from Akane Maniax

As a fan of Top wo Nerae! Gunbuster, this reminded me of epiosde 5 where Coach Ota bursts into a conference room shouting, “Teian shimasu!” The variation is slight, but it makes me wonder about the origin of this scene. For those of you who don’t already know, Gunbuster also borrows a lot from previous works. I suppose I’d have to watch a lot of old Japanese movies to find out, but I wouldn’t even know where to start…

So many things are being thrown into the mix, so I’m sure nobody would mind seeing another spatula.
