ANIME JUSTICE LEAGUE RETURNS by ninjatron ANIME JUSTICE LEAGUE RETURNS by ninjatron
Check out the rest of the Anime Justice League artwork, including the much requested Injustice Gang! [link]




Because of the overwhelmingly positive response to my Justice League of Anime artwork [link] I decided to revisit the concept and draw them again, only this time with my own composition.

Cyborg 009, Cutie Honey, Lupin III, Goku, Sailor Moon, Captain Harlock, and Astro Boy: The ultimate team of anime heroes, united against tyranny and oppression! The Justice League of Anime!

This time around, I wanted to unify the character designs with some inked line art, and then give them some slick, cel-shaded colors with up to 5 tones. Most modern anime doesn't have that many layers of color anymore, but this is special so I went for it.

I would like to! Both sets of characters seen together would be very cool. Maybe someday.

This is badass.


And as for people's possible complaints ("Where's Naurto?"), I assume that an Anime Justice League probably has reserves like the regular one. Where I like to think Roger Smith hangs out.

Here's my version: Three of them I can't stand in your version, so they're out. Usagi is a surefire yes, Lupin is next in line, followed by Harlock, and Honey. Those are my top four. I'd also add Arale from Dr. Slump and Kenshiro from Hokuto no Ken.

Y'know, even if this Idea never gets out of the planning/theoretical stage, this particular picture would make a great Universal Anime Logo.    Nod

Or at lest something similer to a Justice League Anime?

I don't write fanfics. The only way to find out what happens is to watch the show as it plays in my brain. I wish it was a real thing but it's fun to think about and that's likely all it will ever be.

Well, when I do these pictures I have in my mind that I'm not just drawing something for fun, I'm paying homage to the history of anime. It's important to me that the picture does, well... "justice" to that history, so I take it seriously and keep working until I think it's truly finished. It's a love letter to that history so that's the driving force behind this artwork.
