I've noticed that the episode "Monday" of The X-Files has a lot in common with Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, with the reset button being pushed over and over again. It was an awesome episode.

Fist of the North Star was obviously influenced by Mad Max and The Road Warrior, both of those are fucking bad ass and manly as shit.

Anybody else see any parallels or cross-cultural influences between western television/film and anime?
