Japanese animation has many female characters possessing the same appearance and appearance. Sometimes it’s because of the brushstrokes, but sometimes it’s also because behind the similarities is an interesting story, hotly discussed by the audience.
Ran Mouri – Aoko Nakamori
This is perhaps the most interesting case shown on the stroke of . If Shinichi Kudo has an appearance that is “copied” into many other beings, including Kaito Kid, then the two girlfriends of the two guys are surprisingly similar. Aoko Nakamori (Kaito Kid’s girlfriend) doesn’t have the same pointed hair as Ran, but her beauty is like a lost sister.
Not stopping there, Aoko Nakamori is very good at martial arts, goes to the same school as her boyfriend, and often blames and gets upset when Kaito Kid keeps disappearing for unknown reasons. Not only in appearance, but even Aoko and Ran’s life and love story are not very different.
Tomoyo – Sakura’s mother
The Leader of Cards that captivated the Vietnamese audience once had the same pair of characters, but few people noticed. In the movie, Sakura’s best friend – Tomoyo has the same appearance and temperament as Sakura’s late mother – Nadeshiko Kinomoto. Not only have the same cheerful, loving eyes, Nadeshiko and Tomoyo also have long, flowing, iridescent silver hair.
Perhaps this detail is a metaphor for Tomoyo being silently sent by the late Nadeshiko, wishing that she would later be with Sakura. Tomoyo is the daughter of Sonomi Daidouji – Nadeshiko’s close friend and coincidentally, Sonomi has a personality and short hair style quite similar to the heroine Sakura.
Kagome – Kikyo
The similarity of Kagome and Kikyo in Inuyasha has caused controversy for many years, up to the present day. In fact, in the movie, Kagome is Kikyo’s “afterlife”, automatically responsible for protecting the Jewel of Four Souls from Inuyasha and other monsters. But gradually, Kagome has feelings for Inuyasha, while for him Kagome is no different from another version of Kikyo.
The climax is when Inuyasha begins to develop feelings for Kagome, Kikyo suddenly returns. The fact that Kikyo and Inuyasha were together during her last moments on earth made Kagome extremely sad. It was Inuyasha’s affectionate act that made many viewers confused, even angry even though at the end of the film, Inuyasha and Kagome came together.
Shizuka – Nobita’s mother
This detail was only discovered in the past few years when some viewers shared the moment Nobita’s mother took off her glasses. At this time, the beauty of Nobita’s mother surprised everyone because she looked exactly like Shizuka. Even since then, many theories about Nobi’s identity have emerged.
Many viewers even thought that Nobita and Shizuka’s mother were the same person. Although these theories are unreasonable and unofficial, it is undeniable that Doraemon’s “mother-in-law – daughter-in-law” pair has an unusually similar appearance.
