* [[spoiler:Shirley Fenette]] in ''Anime/CodeGeass'' invokes this image as she dies. There is no indication, however, that there is such thing as reincarnation in the setting, but since there are FromASingleCell-type immortals, it is nonetheless possible. To clarify, this had to do with a series of [[LaserGuidedAmnesia memory wipes]]--but the couple always ended up drawn together.
** Of course... this is also only vaguely suggested to be reciprocated. [[spoiler: Lelouch's behaviour doesn't seem to suggest that he cares for her in a particularly romantic fashion.]] He does care... but more in the sense that he wants her to be happy with someone ''else'', thanks to their past history and stuff. Neither does the amnesiac Shirley. It's only when she regains the memory of loving Lelouch that she starts to love Lelouch again.
* Possibly Alma and Kanda of ''Manga/DGrayMan''. Alma is now a male akuma created from Kanda's girlfriend from his previous life.

* In the French comic ''ComicBook/ZornEtDirna'', Death is held prisoner inside a MagicMirror, with the end result that no one is dying anymore. Instead, the soul of those whose heads have been separated from their body finds itself entering the body of their killer. The titular kids' parents find themselves in the bodies of warriors... except their mother is now one of many souls driving a ginormous black guy and their father is in an Amazonian woman.

* Jihwan and Yoonjung of the Korean film [[http://asianwiki.com/Time_Renegades Time Renegades]] reincarnate as Geonwoo and Soeun, and meet once again in the 2015 timeline. Geonwoo is pretty much smitten immediately, but Soeun? Not so much. The plot of the movie gets significantly more complicated after that.

* ''Anime/WinterCicada'' is a ReincarnationRomance when viewed in conjunction with ''Manga/HaruWoDaiteita'', though strangely enough simultaneously a ShowWithinAShow of the same work. The plot of the second heavily, ''heavily'' implies that [[spoiler: the yaoi guys Katou and Iwaki are the reincarnations of Kusaka and Akizuki, the StarCrossedLovers from the first]], since ''Winter Cicada'' is (in universe) BasedOnARealStory.

* In ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/6145992 You're My End and My Beginning]]'', [[Series/MiraculousLadybug Chat Noir and Ladybug]] are reincarnated throughout history to bear the [[TranformationTrinket kwami]], but often do not recognize each other because of TheMasquerade. Their nemesis is also this trope, except that his soulmate dies (relatively) prematurely in ''every'' life, regardless of the era's medical or technological achievements. This drove him a little crazy.

** ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'' expands this a little more. [[spoiler: The Inner Senshi and the four Shitennou were lovers in their past lives, yes, just like Serenity and Endymion and also Uranus and Neptune. In this one, however, the Shitennou were BrainwashedAndCrazy and the Senshi ''save for Venus'' don't remember their romances when they regain their Senshi selves. Venus tries to explain this but her timing is so poor that the girls almost suffer {{heroic bsod}}'s, and for worse, soon afterwards the guys are KilledOffForReal ''right when they're actually recovering their memories and remembering their past girlfriends''.]]
