I agree about the window, but until the series finished coming out and we saw there's no relation, you can't say they weren't meant to be put together.
And again, GA's post. The similarity is far too great for it to not have been meant to be that way.
That could be shear coinsidence though. I respect your opinion in believing this but I think people are getting to paranoid about little similarities that may mean things latter on. Nomura's methods in the past have corrupted alot of peoples views I think.
