TTGL (ep6) has a cameo from the casts of various other gainax shows.

GaoGaiGar's J is also very similar to cyborg 009's 002- to the point that it simply has to be a reference.

Pretty much anything by SHAFT tends to love referencing other anime, films and games. Most noticeably Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei and even moreso Pani Poni Dash. I noticed the SHAFT produced Negima! OVAs for the manga had a few cameos of the rabbit from Pani Poni Dash. Maria+Holic had a couple of references including SZS. Natsu no Arashi and Pani Poni Dash's OVA even had a few Touhou references in there.

Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid finished in 2005. Death Note started one year later. I think it's more of a coincidence rather than a reference.

The manga had been in publication for quite some time.

Damn! That's what I get for being more of an anime watcher than a manga reader - ignorant dolt that I am. Oh, well...

Gintama has bits that parody Prince of Tennis, DBZ, Deathnote, and Naruto.


That's an understatement. Gintama usually parodies multiple anime in every episode. I remember there was even a whole episode dedicated to parodying Bleach, and another that greatly parodied Death Note. Hell, episode 119 was pretty much the entirety of Dragon Ball Z condensed into 20 minutes. Also not forgetting to mention the scene that parodied Bleach, One Piece and Dragon Ball Z at the same time (click here).

I've noticed that in A LOT of different anime, there is often a reference to one anime which stands out to me the most; Lupin III.

Cowboy bebop's art work was admittedly based off Lupin III (special features on DVD box set and/or movie)

Another one is in FLCL (Episode 4 I believe) When Naota-kun's father is dressed as Lupin and Haruko is in her PJs/blankets, and the spring loaded vagina punch scene replayed as in the intro of Lupin III (Even grayed out as it did)

I find anime references to be sorta unfunny. It's like "Oh, there's a character from that show in my show, lol"! The only reference I found funny was in Megazone 23 where Lupin and Zenegata are in the cop car.
