* ''Anime/YourName'': (Japanese Title, ''Kimi no na wa'') (2016). The movie that passed ''Spirited Away'' in world-wide box office. Rural-bred Mitsuha has long been dissatisfied with her life in the countryside and resents her role as a Miko, as well as her father. Her wish of being reborn as a handsome Tokyo boy is seemingly granted when she wakes up in Tokyo and is treated to a day in the life of a busy Tokyo high school student, adjusting to the hustle and bustle of the city that stands in stark contrast to the sleepy town of Itomori. While she dismisses her experiences as a dream, the phenomenon, seemingly related to the appearance of Comet Tiamat, begins to occur with increasing frequency, bringing Taki and Mitsuha's together in a way they previously thought unimaginable.

** {{Reconstruction}}: ''Anime/KillLaKill'': Made in 2013 by most of the alumni who created fellow Reconstruction ''Gurren Lagann'', ''Kill la Kill'' makes fun of several magical girl tropes (magical outifts become skimpy armor, {{Transformation Sequence}}s are [even more] flashy and overdrawn, magical wands and magical attacks are replaced with hard-hitting weaponry, etc.), but ultimately embraces them.

* TropeMaker: ''Manga/{{Devilman}}'': A manga that serialized in 1972-1973. Despite being in WeeklyShonenMagazine, its extremely dark, violent, and sexual content and morals of WarIsHell, as well as the horrible effects of Xenophobia and Racism,would go on to influence many, ''many'' works by other creators, who all have some influence or their own spin on some of the mangas message (including the above mentioned Evangelion, Berserk, and Madoka Magica, just name a small few) all of which are meant only for adults.
