Manga and anime have had a huge impact on western art in general — but they've especially helped to shape fan art. These cool Japanese art styles have helped us to see our favorite Western science fiction and fantasy icons in a whole new way.
Here are some of our favorite manga and anime-influenced pieces of fan art for Doctor Who, Star Trek, Buffy and other great series.
