No... oh, god, no... make them stop!

Everybody's... um... interested in what the new Evangelion movies are going to look like, yes. But have you heard about Petit Eva?

...moan...

It appears that Petit Eva, subtitled "Evangelion @ School", is going to be shown via the internet and at conventions. Anime News Network reports:

"The Gainax/Khara franchise spinoff spoofs the psychological science fiction drama by reimagining the characters as classmates in Tokyo-3's Nerv School, headed by Principal Gendō Ikari and Misato-sensei. The student body includes three different Rei 'sisters,' the EVA-01 mobile weapon reimagined as the school bully Evanchō, and the ill-fated Jet Alone robot as JA-ko, a 'hidden character' in the form of a shy android girl."

Um...

AIEEEEEEEEEEEE!

For the luvva mike...

Steven treads a trail broken by Avatar in the comments of my post on the Chiyo-chan cameo in Lucky Star:

Take a look at the third picture in this post. Isn't that the same girl?

Nope.

Yutaka has green eyes and pink hair. Chiyo-clone has red-brown hair and... um... what color eyes ARE those, anyway? Not green, at any rate.

So I can definitively state that no, that is NOT the same girl.

Well, THAT was unexpected... (UPDATED!)

By now, everybody knows that Lucky Star constantly throws references to other anime series into every episode. Just off the top of my head, there was Kanon, Haruhi Suzumiya (a whole frickin' episode), Marimite, Keroro Gunso, Full Metal Panic, and probably two dozen more that I saw, but didn't catch.

That's all well and good, but I didn't expect THIS one, from ep18:
Isn't she in college yet?

Yep, that's Chiyo-chan from Azumanga Daioh all right...

UPDATE: In an attempt to make the cameo a LITTLE more clear, I'll post an edited version of the above screenshot.
I said, 'Isn't she in college yet?'
