Anime in itself is an art form – but what if that very form of art inspires others to create their own masterpieces as well? That’s just one of the many reasons that makes this popular media an exciting venue to explore: it can push you to create something wonderful! Let us check out some series that can be an inspiration for all sorts of creatives!
Fairly a recent release, this nice show focuses on the ups and downs of making it big in the music industry. But more than success, this series offers a nice snapshot on how artists collaborate in making a song.
Another nice reason to be inspired from this show is that Carole & Tuesday sort of converges people from all walks of life – a nice way to say that anyone can make some really nice music, no matter his or her background.
Focusing on a female artist in the 16th century, this nice anime proves that gender and society’s expectations (due to a person’s background) shouldn’t hinder one from pursuing his or her chosen passion. Art isn’t limited by those barriers – go pick up your paintbrush and start creating those masterpieces!
Speaking more about art, this wonderful series details how it is in the often hit-or-miss world of the manga industry. As it is, it does take a lot of hard work in coming up with a manga that’ll delight people, but the passion shown in this show’s characters can very well serve as a great inspiration on transforming dreams into reality!
One of the great Makoto Shinkai’s masterpieces, this 46 minute wonder shows how passion and creativity can intertwine to push individuals forward, no matter how hard the circumstances are.

A wonderful Ghibli classic, this 90s sleeper hit is a nice take on how it is to be a writer.

Perhaps one of the most latest anime on art, Blue Period is a nice take on how it is to paint, mainly by exploring diffent sorts of mediums. Talent isn’t exactly a factor in creating art, but the most dominant trait one may need in creating something inspiring is hard work and determination. By focusing on the drive and emotions most artists face, viewers can experience – and be inspired – how it is to actually create a masterpiece.

On the other end of the rock and roll spectrum, this interesting take of middle-aged rockers and space battles can also be inspiring for both aspiring and veteran musicians! Age should never be a hurdle nor society’s roles and expectations in playing some rock music (in this case, especially so since rock does save outer space!). The nice guitar riffs from this show are also certified winners, played by epic guitarist John Sykes!
An orchestra can be likened to a well-oiled machine. Perfect dynamics is needed to play a certain piece, with all instruments working together to get all those notes in harmony!
