I really like the art of Animes and Mangas.
Because of that I'm interested in games who have such graphics. Unfortunately most of them are crappy or mediocre, but there are some gems beside.

So I'm trying here to make a list of those games.

If some games are missing from this list(like all those CCG's), feel free to add them, the games doesn't have to be based on a Anime or Manga, they just have to include graphics (be it bad or great) which features an anime style.

Currently my favourite. It features some great miniatures. Curiousely this is a spanish game and the background is a combination of typical anime and western fantasy themes clichees.

The gameplay is also really good, it is light skirmish game, with a lot of options. However, the full rulebook isn't release yet and there are not enough miniatures to make affiliation games. So time will tell if is balanced or not.

This is a card game based on the same rpg as Anima Tactics is. It is a light dungeon crawler which I prefer over Dungeoneer. It is not a great game, but it has some fantastic graphics. If you like light adventure game you should give it a try.

Ok,
this is the game which somehow inspired that list. It a chess/shogi like game which is sadly no longer produced. Many people say the anime is one of the reasons for the missing success. I don't think so, whoever has interest in abstract games will either like a theme or ignore it.
But it must be made clear that this is such a game. A less fancy cover may have worked.

Great Art.
Great Filler.
Horrible Rulebook (which does not hurt, since this game is really easy)

I have never played this game, but the art isn't really great and after reading the rules, I lost all interest to get it.

'Inspired by' rather than actual Anime artwork, all things Heavy Gear are anime-like. Which, given that the game is heavily based on the old anime 'Armoured Trooper VOTOMS' is only right.

I heard rumors that an anime was discussed or in the making, but it never happened.

Reading the flavor texts of the cards, there's way more story potential with this game than with yu-gi-oh. yuk

New Polish (!) anime-art game set "in a Japanese high school". Interestingly enough, based on submitted images, it may be easily translated into English. In any case, the art is nice

A hilarious stupid filler (based on Uno) about what troubles will affect you in school. That is, if you're living in a clich'ee anime world.
