  • show Description
  • Kappa Mikey is a parody of Japanese anime. Mikey Simon is a teenage actor from Cleveland, Ohio who wins a scratch-off card contest and a trip to Japan to star in the country's formerly popular anime series, "LilyMu." As a result, the show becomes number one in the ratings, and Mikey becomes Japan's biggest anime star. The show focuses mainly on the actors and producers' lives off the set, as Mikey's adjustments to his new environment. Immediately noticeable is that Mikey is drawn in the common "western" style - outlined in black (Examples would be characters from Dexter's Lab, Power Puff Girls, Fairly Odd Parents and Danny Phantom) while everyone else in the show is drawn in anime style.moreless

    Trivia (75)

    • Mitsuki wears contact lenses.

    • When Gonard is talking about his room, Gonard's mom is heard for the first time.

    • Mikey's room contains a few LilyMu posters, a bar with stools, a refrigerator, trashcan, chair, two giant speakers with a Mikey and Gonard doll on them, a TV with a neon "Mikey" sign above it, a table, and a couch with a bed above it with sheets decorated with Mikey's face.

    • The objects on Gonard's behind are a slice of pizza, a crayon, a toothbrush, a bag of chips, a leaf, some lipstick, a pencil case, and the handcuff key.

    • Goof: If you look closely at the months of the calendar while Ozu is telling the rules, you'll see that September and October repeat on the calendar as the dates fly by.

    • Ozu announced rule 4,432 before Mikey and Gonard left. When they got back, Ozu announced rule 4,433 as if no time had passed. Wasn't he still telling rules to Lily, Mitsuki, and Guano?

    • The Yes-Man's shirt when he gets back from vacation with Ozu says, "I went to the airport and all I got was this wonderful T-shirt. Thank you, Ozu."

    • On the box for the LilyMu game, the rating "E" can be seen. This is a rating system that is only used by the Entertainment Software Rating Board. In Japan, the Computer Entertainment Rating Organization has an entirely different rating system.
