Settlers of Catan referenced in Anime

It’s been on American TV shows before, but this is a whole new level of cultural saturation.

Catan in Teekyu

This is from the 15th episode of Teekyu. And before people say, “Wait, produces on  a roll of 15? There’s no such hex in Catan…”, ah yup, that’s part of the joke. Teekyu is a sort of rapid-fire absurdist comedy (which, coincidentally, is also legally streaming on Crunchyroll right now).

Catan is getting well known in Japan, though. They even have, bizarrely enough, a Megaman retheme of it. Yeah, that makes even less sense than Star Trek Catan.
