Amazing Instances of Foreshadowing
Posted 9/11/13
Please hide spoilers!!! Not sure if there’s a topic like this, but I thought it might be interesting, so I gave it a shot.

In your opinion, what are some anime series that made fantastic use of foreshadowing, Chekhov’s Gun, or anything along those lines? Which instances really stood out to you and why? It doesn’t have to be a major plot element – it could just be one small instance you thought was cool.

I personally thought Madoka Magica did a great job at this.

I’m very interested in hearing other examples. Though please mark spoilers unless you word it extremely cryptically / vaguely.

For some reason, GSD (Gundam Seed Destiny) was the first anime that came to my mind. I guess maybe it's because the current remastered version is airing.

(spoiler from the series):


Another mecha series that came to my mind would be TTGL involving

Well this one isn't about foreshadowing or chekhov's gun. I guess just sheer directional genius I guess?

It's about Madoka Magica episodes 1 and 10. Something that a lot of people haven't even realized.
