Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' 's visual style has always been anime-inspired, and grown more so over time. The series leans heavily on anime tropes as well, both for humor and as serious plot points. Notably, it is [[InvokedTrope explicitly mentioned]] several times that blue, purple, pink, green, etc. are common natural [[HairColor hair colors]] in TheVerse.


Added DiffLines:

* Despite being a text-based SharedUniverse serial, ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'' frequently applies anime tropes, often lampshading or deconstructing them but just as often playing them straight.

* ''TheAquabatsSuperShow'' has a cartoon segment in this style for every episode for season one and one episode for season two. The designs for the Aquabats! came from [[a long time fan from Japan, Eriko Uruma (better known as PEY) http://www.wb.commufa.jp/ptm/tasssc_001.htm]], who has done various fanart pieces and promo stuff for the Aquabats! long before the Supershow! came out. [[https://gs1.wac.edgecastcdn.net/8019B6/data.tumblr.com/tumblr_me4n0gXKmD1rkosb4o1_1280.gif And she's drawn crossover art]] with Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger, because why not?
* In ''SoRandom'' they had one skit where they imitated the PowerRangers but that didn't last long. The skit they use the most often is the Naruto/Dragon Ball immitating skit with two fans called Scott and Elliot who apparently do nothing but watch anime and constantly act like an anime character.

* ''Film/TronLegacy''. Many critics and moviegoers noted similarities to ''Film/SpeedRacer'' in style; and it becomes quite clear with the light-cycle races and light-jet battles. The [[DarkerAndEdgier dark tone]] of the movie could easily have it pass for an adaptation of ''Manga/GhostInTheShell''. There are also clear AnimeCharacterTypes exhibited with BadassBookworm ActionGirl Quorra, {{Cloudcuckoolander}} Castor, and Kevin Flynn being reimagined as TheObiWan.

* Many of the early ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' web animations had shades of this. The character models were very faithful to the sets, but they would occasionally include things like {{Sweat Drop}}s, {{Blush Sticker}}s, and stylized motion-blur backgrounds for action sequences.

* ''[[http://myanimelist.net/anime/32323/Aishen_Qiaokeli-ing Cupid's Chocolates]]'' is, to the untrained eye, virtually indistinguishable from an anime series. The catch: It was produced entirely in China.
