In Islam it’s forbidden (perhaps more like impossible) to depict God by name or icon, so they just draw its essence directly, and make entire buildings in omage to the structure, beauty, and intricacy of God.
I just realized after reading a comment on twitter to the director of the anime, who said they were paying homage to a certain other work in this ep.
Mashima AND the animation team took it even a step further with the reference to Clannad. The freakin’ flower field is behind them on the board!!!! Remember Ushio running and playing in it when Tomoya took her on that trip?!
Frosch, Gray and Juvia were in front of the flower field!!!
It’s even in the manga too!
I can’t believe I didn’t notice this! How lovely! Wow! Mashima, you not so secret Clannad fan, you!
So, yeah, lest anyone think the whole “Clannad family” voice actor connection is just a happy coincidence in this scene, I can say for certain now that it absolutely was not, since Mashima put it in there from the start, background included. I’m having so many feelings right now lol! The flower field!!!! What even! ^-^
One Month at Gray’s [OMaG for short] is my wonderful ‘fan game’ of the FNaF universe. It’s not really a game, just an idea. I’m not skilled enough to actually model everything and program stuff.
It’s basically just the story of Gretel, our faithful night shift security guard [pictured above. poor gal], working at Gray’s Parties & Games and dealing with several [seven to be exact] animatronics throughout an entire month, discovering clues that manage to link back to her twin brother’s disappearance when they were little kids.
In this image is Gray the Wolf [our wonderful mascot], Mystery Box[secondary mascot], Gretel Wright, and Squirrel[one of three mystery animatronics, though he’s not much of a mystery now]. I’ll make a post [and a tumblr] for the OMaG characters relatively soon.
