At the start of noitaminA animes, there is a loading screen with lots of text appearing onscreen.

enter image description here

Looking closer, I noticed mentions of Eden of the East , Monokoe and Tales of Agriculture - so I reckon there are some Easter Eggs hidden in the rest of the text also.

Unfortunately, all the images I have found are too low resolution to make out what they say.

Can anyone reveal the super-secret messages that lie in noitaminA's loading screen?

    Interesting can also see that, tough you were referring to the black'n'white letters at first. – Prix Jul 29 '14 at 20:21
  • I see that noitaminA is a programming block for TV stations that consists of mostly anime over in Japan. I also see that they most of the windows have anime titles on it like Tokyo ESP and The Tatami Galaxy along with large blocks of text. I think they might just be summaries of the anime. – Frosteeze Jul 30 '14 at 7:48

    There's some 720 versions of the image, but any BD release has that splash screen removed. The best I can make out is some text about noitaminA (maybe from their website) and a bunch of stuff about other shows, Tatami Galaxy, a list of broadcasted anime, air schedules. Maybe some graphs just for "looks"? – Jon Lin Jul 30 '14 at 8:19

Antique

One day Keichiro Tachibana opens a cake shop. Then a gifted patissier/pastry chef called Ono appears. Tachibana and Ono were classmates in high school, but Tachibana gave Ono (a man) the cold shoulder back then. Luckily Ono doesn't remember Tachibana. Tachibana feels relaxed and persuades Ono to work for him as a chef/patissier. However, Ono is a guy of "irresistible Charm" now and gives Tachibana nightmares by trying to seduce him. At this cake shop called Antique, an incident from Tachibana's childhood is revealed, and a variety of cakes is presented. This is a delightful comedy anime

I'm sure it's missing stuff here and there, but this solves the mystery of the small text. It's mainly synopses and similar small items of text related to noitaminA.

Odd that you mention it, because it seems that Studio Rikka (of Pale Cocoon and Time of Eve fame) was released in the production. The particular UI is done in the style of Time of Eve. No, this probably doesn't mean Time of EVE II is confirmed.

It says, on the top left:

noitaminA jingle movie - TYPE: Augemented Reality (ar) Version 1.10.03.23 (b) 2010 made by Studio Rikka.

also check this, the animated intro backwards (or the same: original status of the recording) says Back to Marijuana. #LOL

    Astonishingly, this is not a fabrication by the uploader. It actually does say "back to marijuana" (or something remarkably similar), reversed - I checked with pristine audio, myself. This is a remarkably amusing fact, but I'm not sure it constitutes an answer to OP's question. – senshin May 28 '16 at 3:49
  • just a fun fact, really :) – ExodusTime May 30 '16 at 5:31
