DragonTrainer on April 3, 2012
In the universe the players inhabit, Black Cat does not exist. That's the premise of this entire comic, after all. But most of the other things we know and love (such as Nyan Cat) do, albeit modified by the lack of Black Cat:
-Kentaro Yabuki is known mostly for illustrating To Love-Ru.
-Without the success of Black Cat, Futagami Double was made into a series.
-Nerdy guys still make YouTube videos of themselves debating bounty hunters vs super spies. That hasn't changed.
-The concept of the railgun was popularized by To Aru Majutsu No Index.
-Higurashi no Naku Koro ni was licensed by 4Kids for a short period before getting picked up by Funimation.
-The major cat-themed bounty hunting Anime series that pervades all of Japanese culture is Gunsmith Cats, despite it never being as popular… for some reason.
-DragonTrainer exists and is making a screencap comic based on Brave 10.
-Luke is an avid reader of the screencap comic Mutants & Miscreants.
