    What if anime was in traditional Japanese art, this artist answers

    Anime, although originating in Japan, is rarely seen in traditional Japanese art style. Japanese art has a long history, possibly from the 10th Millenium BC to this day. In the present day, Japanese art is commonly made in the form of anime and manga. However, a Twitter artist, @justin96636, used a particular style, Ukiyo-e, to recreate some animated scenes. The artist presents what anime in traditional Japanese art would look like and the results look absolutely enthralling!

    Before we continue, it should noted that the following images might contain spoilers for people who are not updated with One Piece manga.
