Expressing in early episodes of season it seemed very much like Anya was reading Cordelia script lines.

I guess they are both sort of similar, with sarcastic and doom and gloom bringing remarks, but also relatively well meaning. When Cordy left they probably wanted someone to sort of replace her and bring that element of satirical comedy

They are very similar characters and serve much the same function within the show, but I think the difference is that Cordelia was confident and her sarcasm came from not allowing others disrespect or take advantage of her. Whereas Anya's sarcasm comes from a place of not knowing the social rules, of being a person out of time who simply didn't understand the niceties of personal communication.
