Este artículo contiene spoilers sobre el anime original Kamisama ni Natta Hi, así como otras series producidas por el conjunto Jun Maeda/Key y novelas visuales, como AIR, Charlotte, Angel Beats! y Clannad.
Following the conclusion of the original anime by Jun Maeda and P.A. Works, Kamisama ni Natta Hi (The Day I Became a God), multiple users on networks and internet sites began to make comparisons between the end of this series and that of other productions by the renowned screenwriter. To begin with, this new series ends with Youta walking with Hina, while she is in a wheelchair, something noted as a typical resource for Jun Maeda / Key projects.
In Charlotte's ending, the protagonist Yuu Otosaka is also presented in a wheelchair.
In the second anime adaptation of Kanon by Kyoto Animation, the heroine Ayu is also featured in a wheelchair.
A similar result is presented in Clannad's spin-off visual novel Tomoyo After: It's a Wonderful Life.
In the original animated series Angel Beats !, Yui has visions of what her life would have been like in the company of Hideki Hinata, showing herself in a wheelchair.
However, fans also pointed out that one particular scene from the final episode of Kamisama ni Natta Hi (The Day I Became a God) is quite similar to a scene from AIR's animated adaptation.
This last scene and the alleged "recycling of resources" have led the series to receive mixed reviews on portals such as MyAnimeList, where users say that Jun Maeda "has lost his touch".
Synopsis of Kamisama ni Natta Hi
One day during Youta Narukami's last summer vacation in high school, a girl named Hina appeared before him and proclaimed herself "the Goddess of Knowledge." Hina announced to the confused Youta that the world will come to an end in just 30 days. Youta then witnesses Hina's powers to foresee the future, becoming convinced that what this girl says is real. For her part Hina, with her vast innocence, decides to live in Youta's house for some reason, perhaps just hoping to keep her company in the face of the imminent end of humanity.
