Everyone here ought to know the story behind Icarus, who built a pair of wings out of feathers and wax and flew towards the sun, but his wings were melted the closer he flew.

Are there any Anime/Manga series that has a formula similar to this, where the protagonists strive for an impossible goal, but they closer they are to reaching it, the farther it drifts away?

I can only think of two series that has "Icarus Syndrome", and that is:

Fullmetal Alchemist
Wolf's Rain

Are there any others like this?
