Anime, although originating in Japan, is rarely seen in the 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 be noted that the following images might contain spoilers for people who are not updated with One Piece manga.
This art shows the fight between Black-Foot Sanji and Queen The Plague of the Beast Pirates.

In this final One Piece art, the artist shows the captain of the Strawhat Pirates, Monkey D. Luffy, using his Gear 5 against the Governor-General of the Beast Pirates, Kaido.
Here, the artist shows two of the iconic battles in Demon Slayer between Upper Ranks and Hashiras. The art on the left shows the fight between the Sound Hashira, Tengen Uzui, and the Upper-Rank Six, Gyutaro. Meanwhile, the one on the right shows the Flame Hashira, Kyojuro Rengoku, against the Upper-Rank Three, Akaza. Moreover, the artist depicts the Upper-Rank Demons as the Oni in Japanese folklore.
The same artist has also redesigned the Daki vs Demon Slayers fight and some other demons in his artsyle.
Not just that but we have Jujutsu Kaisen coverted to traditional Japanese art as well.
