In this gameplay video (timestamp included or around 51m 30s in), you can see Mr. Game & Watch (or is it Mario or Luigi) in the background from the Mario Bros. G&W... The background resembles that game a little as well.

Well, now that I've completed the game, I found quite a few things in the game, mostly in-series stuff. Those may not be good enough to be NinDB material, but I'll leave those here.
In the Book Girls minigame (Tosho Girls, Remix 7, Kosho girls, Remix 9, Remix 10), the group shows various characters in the previous games. There are the vegetables in the GBA game, Play-Yan, the Ura-Omote guys (didn't bother to see what they are called in English), DJ Yellow and his student, two of the Tap Dance girls, and there are probably some that I can't remember right now.
In the Daisuki Rap 2 game, at the end you can see the game itself was actually in Mash's living room television. In the room there are pictures of the Rap Men hanged on the wall righthandside to the TV. I don't know about Daisuki Rap 1 right now, since that scene appeared in just a mere split second.
Other than the Mario's Cement Factory cameo, Remix 3 sees Chef appears in this kitchen-themed minigame.
Four GBA games are unlockable later in the game once you beat Remix 7 and get a numbr of mdals: Clapping Trio (35 medals),White Ghost (38 medals), Rhythm Calligraphy (41 medals) and Tap Dance (44 medals). Those games are the same as the GBA versions, save for the upped graphics and music (quality changed, but the tune remained).
Space Bunnies appear in the bouncing minigame (I forgot the name; it was a version 2 game of the one with the Mario's Cement Factory cameo).
In Remix 7, there is a split second showing the Karate Man lying on the floor, watching TV. The TV shows a screenshot of the very first minigame in the series, the GBA Karate Man.

You're welcome! Updates:
- Book girls: The images shown in Remix 7 are the Space Dance captain (GBA), a frog (DS) and Play-Yan (GBA). The one in Remix 10 is a single vegetable (GBA). I'll check the rest when I play the game next time.
- Daiskui Rap: The ending of both 1 and 2 have the same room, with pictures of the Rap Men. It's only the characters (that watch the TV) are different.
- The game the Space Bunnies are in is called "はたらくまんじゅう 2" (working manju).
- Kosho (ancient book) Girls: Vegetables (GBA), Space Dance guy playing ping pong (DS), Moais form Moai Song (DS) - Tosho (library book) Girls: Single vegetable (GBA), DJ Yellow and student (DS), Ura-Omote guys (DS) - Remix 9: Tap Dance girl (GBA, original Tap Dance), another Tap Dance girl (GBA Remix 5)
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)

Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)
Jun 14, 2021 10:18:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.
Jul 8, 2021 11:28:57 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.
Jul 8, 2021 11:30:44 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.
Jul 8, 2021 11:31:13 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.
Jul 16, 2021 10:38:22 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
