''ENDLESS NIGHT'''s primary focus (figure skating), core concepts, and some of its imagery (most notably that of [[spoiler:two men pair skating together]]) are all transferred into ''Yuri!!! on Ice''.

* ''Manga/AnoKoNiKissToShirayuriWo'', what with the "two rivals (one fiery and compassionate, the other [[TheAce a genius]] who's rather passive about everything but romance) fall in love with each other" takes a few cues from ''Manga/SpecialA''.

** The animated adaptations of ''Manga/SoulEater'' and ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'' even suffered similar fates. Both shows started to overtake the manga on which they were based and, rather than try to pad out the show with filler, the writers came up with [[GeckoEnding their own ending]] for the show to tie up the loose ends. They faced similar [[BaseBreaker responses from the fandom too]].

* First, Junichi Sato directed ''{{Pretear}}'', a MagicalGirl series that is (very) loosely based on "Literature/SnowWhite", and features a redheaded heroine with a PrettyBoy and TallDarkAndSnarky JerkWithAHeartOfGold as her love interests, and a DarkMagicalGirl enemy who believes nobody loves her. Three years later, he directed ''Anime/PrincessTutu'', a MagicalGirl series featuring a ballet-dancing {{Redheaded Hero}}ine trapped in a fairytale-influenced world with... a PrettyBoy and TallDarkAndSnarky JerkWithAHeartOfGold as her love interests, and a DarkMagicalGirl enemy who believes nobody loves her. While the two series are very different in tone and overall story (Pretear is a ReverseHarem that starts out light-hearted and quickly becomes dark, while Tutu has dark elements from the get-go and is full of meta about art and storytelling), the similarities are hard to ignore.
