That was quite a serious episode for the most part, except that ending totally changed the atmosphere. Their silent reaction to that OP song was priceless!

The funniest film of the series, if a bit short since there was only one joke with three spins.

Was every shot of the "historical records" from a film? I couldn't hope to identify each one.

Liked the Alan Smithee name-drop.

Wow. I thought that was going to serious at first, until I saw the "Trophy Unlocked" thing. Then I realized it was just movie and game references. That's pretty freaking genius. And that ending....OMG. Yep, that's definitely how the real world is.

By far the funniest episode. I knew something was up when the flashed the Mad Max style clip in the war archive, but wasn't entirely sure until they showing the various iconic aliens.

Ikr, starting from the game achievement I just started laughing like crazy. The season 2 or the directed by, I guess none of them understood what that meant. I also enjoyed a lot of the references, this was a funny short.

Ppl here keep saying Trigger, but it's actually scripted and directed by Yoshiura x.x

Oh dang how did I miss his name? I just went back to the credits and saw his name credit under original work/script/director. This is so him, except probably also the funniest script he's ever done. This one and Power Plant are definitely my top favorites so far, and both are by Yoshiura Yasuhiro. Thanks for mentioning it!

When they brought up the "Z" I thought they were going to reference the book "World War Z". Such a missed opportunity, it'll definitely be better than all other uninventing jokes.

Turns out it's made by Yasuhiro Yoshiura, that explained the dry comedy.

One of the most interesting shorts, funny and meta at the same time.

Also I think I've seen this plot in a book before (a short story likely), can't remember where though.

I was thinking of "The Island" aswell.

Man I laughed so much when I found out (at the schematics of a giant robot) that every scenario came from a film / video :D
Well done ... this was hilarious.

I've wondered what historians and archaeologists in the future would think about the media/things we would leave behind. This short answered that in a unique and hilarious way!

Everything about this was amazing, the plot gave a great reason to throw together a bunch of different genres. The ending had me in stitches.

This just in: the future is gonna suck. Humans have screwed the pooch again. Also, Michael Camerobay? Was that a shot at Michael Bay? Also, really? War of the Worlds? Mars Attacks? Independence Day? Really? And zombies? Then a moe slice of life?

Wait, ohhhh. In the future, our media becomes a record of our history due to the loss of history. That is an interesting thought. In a thousand years, if history of the 20th and 21st century were lost and one random piece of media were unearthed to chronicle the culture and events of the present day, what should that be? Or, what are the chance it would be something accurate?

This would actually make for an entertaining satire series, where in the future, you'd have a team tasked with recreating the present day by reenacting a different activity each episode. For example, the team trying to create a zombie strand or reinventing high school comedies, but with a lot of misunderstandings and confusion as to how these things make sense. Huh.

References in order (let me know if i missed any):

-the initial facility resembles something like The Island, but a sealed off underground facility unbeknownst to the world at large wasn't a new concept by that movie, so reference probably older.

-black guy is obviously Morgan Freeman.

-ww1 (probably a specific video)
-ww2 (not sure which battleships)
-vietnam (might be a movie)
-Mad Max
-WW1 again
-(dunno when bombers)
-AC-130 in 40mm scope (with achievement, meaning it's CoD)
-Mad Max again
-Michael Bay mech might be specific reference or general, not sure.

-giant "ALIEN" word accompanied by an X-Files parody song
-NY alien ship is a mix between District 9 and Independence Day
-2001 (?)
-War of the Worlds
-Mars Attacks
-Jurassic Park
-(forget the dissection scene)
-combination of Starship Troopers and Alien

-black plague
-(not sure of hazmat suits scene)
-mistaking a map for spread of japanese anime films as plague spread
-The Hulk

i dunno my zombie movies/games, i can tell it's a mixture of many different ones, only one i can pick out is:
-World War Z

I'm not sure which VN the last one references, but it seems very familiar.

This was the funniest short I've seen in this series xD So many recognizable pop culture references revealed in a creative and unexpected way.

The real world is certainly more moe. No one can hide the truth!
