Yeah. Seems like Japan isn't that different from the US in that if something works, it quickly becomes the new 'formula' for that type of show. See the rise of Idol shows in recent years and the rebirth of Mecha stuff following the successes of shows like Gurren Lagann (ala SSSS.Gridman as an example).
