Top Ten Movies that Were Inspired by Anime


The Top Ten

1 The Matrix (Influence : Ghost in the Shell)

. The Wachowskis are fans of Ghost in the Shell.They showed it to Joel Silver (the producer) saying "We wanna do that for real." - Tia-Harribel

2 Looper (Influence : Akira) V 1 Comment
3 The Lion King (Influence : Kimba the White Lion)

The Lion King is one of my favorite movies. But it is undeniably inspired by Kimba the White Lion. I will always like The Lion King more than Kimba the White Lion but The Lion King is still a rip-off. - Tia-Harribel

The Lion King is a RIP OFF, and a horrible one at that.

Influenced? Inspired?! NO. The accurate word is plagiarism. I wonder how "Kimba the White Lion" creators didn't sue Disney for ripping off their work. OR maybe they tried to but Disney got away with it,who know?!

4 Inception (Influence : Paparika)

Christopher Nolan acknowledged Paparika as his source of inspiration for Inception movie. - Tia-Harribel

If it's inspired by paprika then I have to say paprika is awesome even though I haven't seen this. - zxm

5 Avatar (Influence : Princess Mononoke)
6 Black Swan (Influence : Perfect Blue)
7 Van Helsing (Influence : Vampire Hunter D)

I've seen the close relation between Vampire Hunter and Helsing. - jerk4life

8 Pacific Rim (Influence : Neon Genesis Evangelion,Mobile Suit Gundam,Patlabor,etc)

Just watch the first episode of Neon Genesis Evamgelion and you'll see the similarities. - Tia-Harribel

9 Her (Influence : Chobbits)
10 Requiem For a Dream (Influence : Perfect Blue)

The Contenders

11 AI: Artificial Intelligence (Influence : Ghost in the Shell)
