You think King Lear
is anime? *facepalm*
Ok, if one of The Bard
's ten best-known plays doesn't ring any bells, how about one of his top three?
For example, Throne of Blood
is Macbeth recycled in Feudal Japan
. If phrased as an X Meets Y
, that would end up something like Macbeth
, and that's just not a good X Meets Y.
Note that you really shouldn't have to know what Throne of Blood or Kagemusha
is to understand the example. Technically, you shouldn't even have to know what Macbeth
is, though I weep at the thought. (Not asking you to have seen
it, but the idea that someone doesn't even recognize the name makes me shudder.) All you really have to realize is that those three are works, while Feudal Japan is a time and place.

"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.
