Major Similarities Between Ralph Breaks the Internet and High Score Girl
1. Nostalgic Video Games
Just like how Ralph Breaks the Internet gives older viewers a taste of nostalgia, High Score Girl offers something similar but in context to Japan’s gaming scene. Haruo and his best friend Akira love to go at it at Street Fighter II in the arcades, which is given a cameo in the Ralph movie. Through video games, we see how friendships are formed and it also gives international audiences an idea just how big the PC Engine (or the TurboGrafx-16) was over there. Just like how we see the games with their original graphics in context to the outside world, High Score Girl offers its viewers that same flavor. Though the animation is relatively cheap and simple looking, it offers the same kind of heart warming flavor of making friends through games just like Ralph Breaks the Internet does.

So, what if your favorite anime, video game, manga, and/or light novel characters (for better or worse) all came to the real world? Well, it would certainly be the battle of the century as this is what happens in the 2017 hit, Re:Creators!
Major Similarities Between Ralph Breaks the Internet and Re:Creators:
1. Pop culture mash up
In comparison to Ralph Breaks the Internet, Re:Creators takes the notion of mixing various pop culture reference, and just makes it dark and intense. Though they don’t directly use characters from other properties, it is obvious for fans to see who the featured characters are meant to reference. Mamika is a homage to Madoka from Madoka Magica, Selesia spoofs Asuna from Sword Art Online, and Yuuya’s summon is similar to a Persona, or a Stand from JoJo. While Disney has the money to get the rights to use various characters featured in Ralph Breaks the Internet, Re:Creators tweaks it enough for hardcore fans to get who references who. What makes Re:Creators more exciting than Ralph Breaks the Internet is as opposed to co-existing within the internet, these characters are magically brought to the real world and duke it out!
