Recently I started replaying F.E.A.R., one of my favorite games of all time. While doing so, and for some reason, I'm constantly being reminded of Elfen Lied, which I haven't watched in ages.

Maybe it's because the stories in both IPs revolve around a psychic girl who murders everything in her path, and judging from the fanfics that combine the two properties, it seems I wasn't the only person who got the reference.

What about you? Have you ever been reminded of an anime while doing something else, like listening to music or playing a game?

Listening to Fractal reminds me of Fractale

This is going to sound really weird, but after watching a certain AMV, every time I hear the song "Straight Outta Compton" I am reminded of Hidamari Sketch (oddly enough).

This is hilarious for two reasons.
1) The extreme contrast between those two things.
2) I actually hate that type of music, but i'm often around people who enjoy listening to it, so it now takes on a completely different meaning whenever I hear it



(Note: I wouldn't recommend looking up the song though. First, because aside from my odd association, I actually hate the song. Second, because the song itself is extremely vulgar).

Any time I listen to canon in d by pachelbel i'm reminded of Air, Kanon, and Clannad. I guess since they're all made by the same company.

Not really specifically , but in general then yes. As far as anime and JRPG's having the same art style, sometimes similar stories and often the music in anime reminds me of the music in RPG's.
There's actually alot of hip hop that has beats that remind me of the music in rpg's.
