I took a screen capture of this a while ago, to show to Neophone, and after talking to maroongem, I thought I should get around to posting these for your enjoyment.
The first image is from an anime entitled Ghost Hunt which deals with the investigation of the paranormal, and is taken from a scene inside a classroom in episode 15:
And here is the poster that appears in that screen capture above:
The Japanese are quite enamored with their phonographs, and it surprises me just how often these types of things appear in anime (Japanese animation, although to the Japanese, Western animation such as Disney would be considered “anime”). I may post further images as I come across them...at one point I’d hit Neophone with quite a few images.
This is a generic phonograph, and not an Edison, but here is the phonograph that appears in episode 15 of Gankutsuou (an anime adaptation of The Count of Monte Christo which bizarrely takes place in space):
This particular scene takes place on the count’s space ship, and in the first image he (right) and Albert de Morcef (left) are enjoying music played on it. It’s a very interesting anime (at least to me) because of how gaudily textured everything is; very few things have solid colors, almost everything has some pattern mapped to it, which you can see in the furniture and the (wallpapered?) external horn machine. This is particularly true of the characters; their hair and clothing are textured in the same manner.
Anyway, hopefully you enjoy getting to see more Japanese pop culture representations of phonographs.
