While searching for the hot spring that can turn him back into male, Kokkuri-san passes several other hot springs. I got the feeling from watching the show that they were giving a shout-out to / parodying other anime shows.

What were those shows?

    It would help a lot if you posted some screenshot as reference to these types of questions. – кяαzєя Jan 23 '15 at 17:29
  • @ʞɹɐzǝɹ It would help a lot in the posting of those screenshots if CR didn't DRM the videos... X<( – Mindwin Jan 23 '15 at 17:30
  • Glossary: CR = CrunchyRoll; DRM = Digital Rights Management. anime.SE = this very site. And before you cry wolf, I watch CR and post to anime.SE in/from my android tablet. (also note that this post does not have an @___ adresee) – Mindwin Jan 23 '15 at 17:34
  • @Midwin regardless of DRM or not, you can still take screenshots from your computer, if you are on Windows 7 or above, you can use the built-in "Snipping Tool" – кяαzєя Jan 23 '15 at 17:41
  • @ʞɹɐzǝɹ Not using windows. Android 4.4.4 here. Unless I root the tablet, no can do. – Mindwin Jan 23 '15 at 18:02

I noticed these two signs:

Panda Spring

Woman Spring

To me, that's a clear reference to the classic Ranma 1/2, as that series features a male protagonist who fell into a cursed spring, which made him turn into a woman whenever he got splashed with cold water. His father likewise received the same curse and turned into a panda after falling into a different spring in the same area.

Ranma 1/2

  • Yup. Ya hit the bullseye. – Mindwin Jan 24 '15 at 23:12
