I am not an expert or fan of anime so I’ll take this essay‘s word for it when it discusses the prequels’ influence on a popular anime series:
Another trait that Anakin Skywalker and Homura Akemi share is that over their story arcs, they become more selfish as the story contnues. In The Phantom Menace Anakin selflessly gives to Padmé, Qui-Gon and Jar Jar without any thought of reward. In Revenge of the Sith, Anakin selfishly tries to save Padmé because it’s not about her, it’s really about him.
