A manga/anime series entitled ''[[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2012-08-11/nobuhiko-okamoto-leads-aoi-sekai-no-chushin-de-cast Aoi Sekai no Chuusin De]]'' was created which has a similar premise, but with several differences.

* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' [[OlderThanTheyThink wasn't the first-ever]] DarkerAndEdgier MagicalGirl series, but in its wake came a wave of darker MG shows, including ''DayBreakIllusion'', ''{{Wixoss}}'', and ''YuukiYuunaWaYuushaDeAru''. It's gotten to the point where some fans automatically assume that an upcoming darker MagicalGirl anime is "a ''Madoka'' ripoff" (whereas a lighter MG show is "a ''Franchise/PrettyCure'' ripoff").

** ''Mashin Eiyuuden Wataru'' and ''Anime/{{SD Gundam|Force}}'''s respective successes lead to a brief flood of shows with mecha that use [[SuperDeformed super-deformed]] proportions, throughout the nineties. ''Mado King Granzort'', ''Anime/LordOfLordsRyuKnight'', ''[[Anime/ShippuIronLeaguer Whirlwind! Iron Leaguer]]'' and the ''Anime/NGKnightLamune40'' franchise were all examples of this.

* ''KimiNiTodoke'' inspired ''lots'' of ShoujoGenre manga (of varying quality) with a shy girl as the lead. Unfortunately, some mangaka took it too far and made them weak, spineless crybabies.
