Shout Out / NEEDLESS

  • NEEDLESS has several Shout Outs.
    • The settings itself seems to be ripped off directly from Fist of the North Star: wasteland as far the eye can see dotted with ruined high-rise buildings.
      • To further drive this point home, the narrator of the opening segment is Kenji Utsumi, better known as the voice actor for Fist of the North Star Big Bads Raoh and Kaioh.
    • Mio uses a giant stuffed animal to do a variation on the Kinniku Buster.
