*** ''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.]]

* ''Anime/BlueSubmarineNumberSix'' is a SpiritualSuccessor to ''Anime/SpaceBattleshipYamato'', except that the bad guys are the ones that move around in a refurbished battleship.

** 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.

* ''Anime/{{Tamayura}}'' is the spiritual successor to ''Anime/{{Kamichu}}''. Not only is the show about a tightly-knit group of teenage girls, with the mood, art style and theme practically lifted from its illustrious predecessor, but it also [[RealPlaceBackground takes place in Takehara]], an old town not far from ''Anime/{{Kamichu}}'s'' Onomichi and similar to Onomichi in many respects. Still, an argument could me made for ''{{Sketchbook}}'' as an influence, considering the age of the characters and the art theme (not to mention the opening).

* People have started seeing ''KenichiTheMightiestDisciple'' as a spiritual successor to ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf''. Granted, just think about it: a comic martial arts series with pretty [[ActionGirl Action Girls]], which results in lots of {{Fanservice}}, a LoveDodecahedron and a WillTheyOrWontThey type of relationship between the protagonists. Sure, there's no {{Tsundere}} female character in here, but if it was, then it'd be called a rip off instead of a resemblant work.
