Your Favourite Games Get Anime Openings

Japanese video-sharing site NicoNico Douga is well known for having its own unique net culture and memes. One of the most interesting of these is the "tekaki" style of video. "Tekaki", literally meaning "hand-drawn", refers to a type of video where a popular clip -- usually an anime or video game opening -- is altered to portray a different game or anime altogether. This is done by tracing the original source frame by frame, making the desired alterations, and then reanimating it.

    None of my favourite games were on that list :|

      That's what I was thinking, I hadn't even heard of most of these.

    Woooooooooo! Persona 4

    Search YouTube for "Pokemon Shippuuden". That one was good, as well.

    I thought the Phoenix Wright one was done by the official studio.

    That takes of FF VII worked so well haha


    Was that master YI at the end of the FF VII video?


    I would totally watch that anime. Even if the entire show had that kinda shaky (not so well drawn) style, i'd freakin' watch it

    Phoenix Wright needed to be made in Death Note style.

    My fave is probably the FF VI one, because it combines FF VI and Full Metal Alchemist, which is epic. Needs an FF VIII one. That would be glorious.

    Love the pic of Kefka, doesn't look completely drag lol
