45 Japanese Animation & Video Game Website Layouts

Comparing Japanese web design trends to the United States is a great difference. Icons and banners and Flash media is all too common, especially amongst video game websites and cartoons/TV shows. The Japanese culture is so different from the western world, yet we all share the same planet and the same Internet.

I want to showcase 45 Japanese animation & gaming website layouts for design inspiration. You may not consider using these techniques in your own layouts, but it is always good to know the market. Japan’s economy is within the top 5 worldwide and they spend a lot of money online. And you do not need to understand the Japanese language to appreciate beautiful website design. It is truly magnificent how designers may communicate across language barriers to share and understand more complex design trends.
