** 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.

*** ''Anime/TheBigO'' itself has a spiritual successor in ''TigerAndBunny''. Both are anime series by the same studio, share part of the staff, and has the look and feel of an american saturday morning cartoon. While the first sported a mecha pilot Bruce Wayne, the second depicts the results of a government/private take-over on the Justice League. [[spoiler:Also including a cute short-haired android voiced by Akiko Yajima.]]

** The average person who has watched ''Anime/RahXephon'' will more likely compare it to ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', though.

* "Anime/SamuraiFlamenco" is a [[{{GenreBusting}} genre busting]], [[{{DeconReconSwitch}} deconstructing-reconstructing]], [[{{MidSeasonTwist}} wild ride]] of a show. It uses so many genres and tropes that it can be compared to a diverse range of works that cross culture, genre, and time, like: Film/TheDarkKnight, Anime/TigerandBunny, Film/KickAss, and Literature/DonQuixote; as well as Sentai and MagicalGirl shows.
