* While ''Manga/HunterXHunter'' isn't set in any discernible time period (since it's a fantasy series), the 2011 remake features updated technology. Flip-phones are changed to smartphones, and VHS tapes are changed to [=DVDs=]. It's extremely noticeable when comparing it to the 1999 adaptation.

The original anime had the LocalHangout as an arcade - which had fallen from popularity in the 2000s - so Crown becomes a karaoke parlor, with the girls getting mission briefings from a private room.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016'' takes place in the 2010s instead of the [[ComicBookTime vaguely late 1990s to early 2000s]] of the original ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''. For example, the girl's phone (which was dated even in the original series because it was a ''toy'' phone) was replaced with a smartphone. This means that the girls can be called even when away from home.
