If you look around you, anime lookalikes exist all around you. Feast your eyes on these photos of real people who look like anime characters, carrying about their business in the 3D world as if they walked straight out of your television set. Art reflects life, and these people who resemble animated characters definitely support that statement. Both men and women who look like animated characters inspire the rest of the world to up their game when it comes to fashion and fandom. These spitting images your favorite Japanese cartoon characters might convince you anime is totally real, and will leave you wondering if some of them were based off real people to begin with.

From big, beefy brawlers like Sousuke Yamazaki and Saitama, to peppy, otherworldly divas like Saber and Rena, feast your eyes a full-on display of cartoony, real-life people anime doppelgangers.  If they're lucky, maybe they'll inspire a spin-off of their own.
