** The very first chapter and episode of the series ends with a shot of Natsu taking Lucy with him to flee from the Royal Army soldiers that came after him for destruction of property. When Natsu comes to [[spoiler: Crocus after the second TimeSkip, he unsurprisingly causes another commotion with a side of property damage, and the mini-arc ends on the same shot as Natsu, Lucy and Happy head out to reform Fairy Tail.]]

** The show's bookends are even in a meta sense: the first OP and ED of the first season are done by COLORS and Ali Project, respectively. The second OP and ED of the second season are also done by the two respectively.

* In the anime of ''Manga/TheRoyalTutor'', it starts and ends with Heine greeting the younger princes in the same study room. The difference is that in the first instance, the princes were cold and dismissive of Heine, openly wanting to chase him away. In the last instance, they've become very fond of him, actively wanting him to be their tutor.

* ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers'' begins with a young Subaru shouting for help while she's trapped in a burning airport, and Nanoha coming to save her in the nick of time, congratulating her for doing well to survive and assuring her that she'll bring her to a safe place. Subaru's WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue has two young children (who look suspiciously like Subaru and her sister) shouting for help while trapped on [[FireWaterJuxtaposition a sinking ship]], and Subaru saving them in the nick of time [[MeaningfulEcho while echoing the same words Nanoha told her many years ago]]. Bonus points for the fact that Subaru's Barrier Jacket was based off of Nanoha's.
