Here's a collection of t-shirts featuring anime inspired artwork by some of the world's top independent artists:
For many anime fans the craze began when a kid with psychic powers exploded with energy:
Back when characters knew how to use their fists
And there weren't quite so many pocket monsterst lurking around
Animated features have always ruled the world of anime, especially those made by one beloved studio
And cute little characters who would grow up to be big, strong and super saiyan!
Giant mechs are always a popular part of anime, because who doesn't love a giant, butt kicking robot?
Sometimes the translation to English seems to be off, but that's just because the Japanese have an extremely irreverent sense of humor
Some anime characters simply ooze style and sophistication
While others seem content to keep it rude and crude
Fans love anime characters so much they tattoo their body with their favorite Japanese animation superstars
Being an anime fan isn't just a hobby or a fetish, it's a lifestyle
And everybody knows only the coolest kids in town watch anime!
Some shows make folks grumpy, because they don't get the appeal
While others are simply too complex for casual viewers
But any true fan of anime will stick it out, watching it all in turn so they can join the army of anime fans found around the world
Because that's how fans of anime get their kicks- by watching kickass cartoon shows!
And you know cartoon shows don't come much cooler, or jazzier, than those found in the world of anime
There's something for everyone, from those with decidedly dark tastes
Those creepy fans of all things horrific
To the lover of frenetic martial arts action, and those who love it when their favorite samurai sports an afro
The sci-fi shows are worth a billion double dollars
And are often created to appeal to intelligent adults
Because those who have good taste in adult animation should be rewarded with delicious storylines
But if you're looking for something a bit cuter and softer around the edges anime has something for you too
Although we still suggest taking a look at Akira- the film that started an anime revolution
And don't forget to add some Bebop to your series queue space cowboy!
