During the opening song 'Kogarashi Sentiment' (The fourth opening in Monogatari Season 2), the video continually switches from one art style (the normal Monogatari type art), to another one (which seems like a dated art style).

Is this a homage to another artist/company who would be known for this style?

The style seems quite familiar, but that could just be the dated feel of the art.
