This question is for anyone who has ever had that feeling that some characters, events, etc. in that anime/manga are almost exactly alike. For instance you know a two characters from two different anime/manga series that have such similar personality or traits that you coucld've sworn one was the reincarnation of the other. Yup, that's deja vu for ya folks......

I get that alot, Enigma, because the truth is that there's a lot of similarities. A lot of contemporary anime draw upon the same proven trends, characters, etc. to sell more. I mean, what differentiates Ai Yori Aoshi from Love Hina besides some plot devices, locations, and characters?

There really are a lot of similarities... like every Gundam series... :-P

Heh, good point on the Gundam series stuff, they recycled so many ideas like the appearance of gundam, uniforms, etc.

Gundam's basically a reincarnating idea... ^_~

Ironically enough... It's good to be evil.
