The Basketball Which Kuroko Plays

Kuroko's Basketball is a show for girls that are fans of sweaty men taking their shirts off (and what girl isn't?). During a match between title character's team and the team managed by his former crush, both the female managers (the only two women in the show) serve up honey soaked lemons during half time. But of course they forgot to slice the lemons first.

My Mental Multiple-Choice Power Is Completely Ruining My School Romantic Comedy

My Mental Multiple-Choice Power Is Completely Ruining My School Romantic Comedy is the appropriately named late night television anime about a guy who happens to have a mental multiple-choice power which ruins his school romantic comedy in ridiculous ways. Furano Yukihira is the main character's energetic classmate and romantic interest. Her hair, turned completely white due to an accident in first grade, is accented by an alpaca hair clip. Presumably a reference to Marimo "Panty Eater" Bandou.

Kill la Kill, known as "Kill the Kill" in English, is studio Trigger's first full length television anime. With all style and no budget, the former Gainax employees really push the medium to the limit. As masters of visual storytelling we see Trigger use this scene as a visual metaphor. The main character is introduced biting a whole lemon, later to have it stolen by some tiny ruffian. This really sets the whole theme for the show and its studio: "When life gives you lemons, might as well eat."
