So not too long ago I finished watching Madoka Magica (definitely one of the best anime I've ever seen, and yes, I enjoyed Kyubey as a character and the way his thoughts contrasted those of the girls', YOU MAY KILL ME NAO ALONG WITH HIM) and on several occasions it reminded of something I quite couldn't put my finger on. In retrospective I later realized it was Kingdom Hearts, because:

* POSSIBLE MADOKA MAGICA (and KH??) SPOILERS *

A. Some of the witch designs might have as well been Heartless (Ex. Charlotte and Walpurgisnacht)

B. Certain tracks had a similar ominous feeling to them, just as in the games.

C. The atmosphere steadily goes from "sunshine and rainbows" to emotional breakdowns, broken bonds and people having to separate.

D. The scene after the credits in the final episode eerily resembles the secret scene at the end of KH2 after the credits.

TL;DR So I was wondering, has an anime ever reminded you of some other unrelated piece of media that isn't anime (I think there already is a thread about recalling other anime) whether live action series, movies, books, plays, comics, videos, etc.? Or perhaps real-life situations you have been in, conversations/events you have witnessed, or friends, family, lovers, class, work, etc?

This is kind of off topic since it is not unrelated media or whatever. But Magica Madoka reminded me of Bokurano. I actually found Bokurano to have more of an emotional impact than Madoka too. I guess the all girl moe cast of Madoka gave that anime a leg up though.

Guilty Crown..

You had a Char clone fighting an Asuka clone who worked for a Griffith Clone who lead the Band of the Clones and taught the Main character Shinji Clone how to treat his Rei Clone girlfriend with respect, BUT they had to face off against an evil goverment like in NGE who had access to special powers similar to HxH but.....don't worry! A Kira-clone is your best friend and he takes lip from NOBODY WITH HIS DEMONIC SHEARS... Don't even get me started on how half the villains looked like Gundam villains.

They should have just called it Guilty of copying all other anime and cramming it in one plot Crown


The ending was ok, Shinji-clone even got some Auto-mail...because why stop in the last 10 seconds eh?

I really enjoyed Tsuritama because it reminded me of fishing with my dad when I was younger.

The Magnostadt arc in Magi is extremely reminiscent of the Harry Potter franchise.

The distortions of reality in [email protected] reminded me of Puella Magi Madoka Magica's witch dimensions reminded me of the opening to Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei whose "Zetsubou-shita" moments reminded me of a time the main character in Maria Holic said it whose opening theme reminded me of the fight scene between Araragi & the monkey in Bakemonogatari whose weird color filters reminded me of Tsukuyomi Moon Phase whose weird color alterations reminded me of Soul Taker which also reminded me of how the same color alterations occur in Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei which reminded me of the similar slice of life comedy Pani Poni Dash, which reminded me of Azumanga Daioh which reminded me of School Rumble which brought memories of watching Love Hina which reminded me of Kimagure Orange Road

It started out as sarcasm until I realized that I've seen nearly everything that's been animated by Shaft or directed by their main director and had to stop to add variety

(Shaft animated my avatar T_T )
