Just kinda, where the real and the animated comes together you know?
Recently figured, the computers they use for fixing the Magi in NGE really looks like TRS-80 model 100s. No idea if they had any japanese counterpart to it that is more likely to be the inspiration, but yeah.
GIF related, one of the scenes in question.

Also another tidbit;
In SEL, there´s this PC hardware thing they call a "psyche". But there is actually a real world thing, only it´s spelled PsyQ, some sort of development hardware accessory for the PS1. Which just also happens to be the console the SEL game was for.

Last in a row now, but looked that stuff about the TRS-80 up now, and oh man it actually is japanese apparently. The Tandy-version is just american imported ones with a different shell and renamed. The original is Kyotronic 85 by Kyocera Corp., and it´s a closer match to the colors of the ones in NGE closer, pic related.

Holy shit, I had no idea Howls Moving Castle was actually based on a book.
Apparently a trilogy too, looks like the movie only hinted at the second book (Castle in the Air) with the ending.

In Haibane Renmei, Rekis lighter is actually an IMCO Triplex.
Funny thing, I had actually gotten two of them for cheap from an army surplus before watching it and was surprised to see it in there.
Not sure about the history of the model though, some seem to hint it has military history but there's not really any real serious writing about it.

Also KanColle girls parallel their ship counterparts except for Yamato winning the Battle of Midway.
