* ''Anime/EarthDefenderMaoChan'' includes a character (Kagome Mishima) who looks identical to Creator/KenAkamatsu's previous and better-known series ''Manga/LoveHina'''s Naru Narusegawa; another character (Sylvia) is voiced by Naru's VA Creator/YuiHorie. At one point, the characters visit a hot springs resort which is clearly the one from Love Hina - they even describe it as "the hot-springs which magically makes people get in to Tokyo U!" It's inhabited by another character looking identical to Naru, and when Kagome introduces herself to the Naru-alike and asks her name, another character says "No! Don't answer that!" In the English dub, Naru and Kagome have the same English voice-actress.

** Don't forget: anytime any guest [=VAs=] turn up in ''Lucky Star,'' it's almost certain that the next episode preview will be voice-overed by whatever character they're famous for. Example: Kyon and Yuki previewing episode 17, or the cast of ''Manga/SgtFrog'' previewing episode 13, after their [=VAs=] turned up in the anime, In the English dub of that same episode, VicMignogna apparently reprised his role as Keroro (and is the only ADV cast member from the show to do so; he couldn't keep his role in the Funimation dub).

** YuukiKaji plays a teenage boy who develops serious {{Revenge}} issues after his mother dies before his eyes. [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII Sounds familiar.]]

*** Her character in Anime/GuiltyCrown has feelings for a boy played by YuukiKaji[[note]] Ambiguous in canon, but official parodies portray Annie as having feelings for Eren[[/note]], and likewise covers herself in crystal at one point.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Anime/GurrenLagann'', Creator/MichelleRuff plays a teenage sniper whose main weapon is a huge [[{{BFG}} Anti-Materiel Rifle]]. A few years later, in Season 2 of ''Anime/SwordArtOnline'', she goes on to play... a teenage sniper, whose main weapon is a huge Anti-Materiel rifle. The specifics are a bit different, though. The former is a FriendlySniper, while the latter is a ColdSniper. Their [[BuxomIsBetter endowments]] and [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair hair colors]] are also in sharp contrast with one another.

* In the end of the mecha duel in ''Anime/{{Gankutsuou}}'', Monte Cristo delivers a very [[Anime/{{Hellsing}} Alucard]]-esque monologue complete with red backlight and sprouting extra eyes. Needless to say, Creator/JojiNakata used his "Alucard" voice for the monologue.
