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.

I forgot. Kamen Rider Kuuga should be added.

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

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.
