A superflat exploration of the underlying symmetry, and by extension, asymmetry, of modern Japanese pop culture.
An excuse to post silly-looking pictures of anime characters.

ABOUT THE CURATORS
bitmap enjoys, aside from anime, things like pixel art, chiptunes, and soundtrack music. Does amateur scanlation, fansubbing, and a whole lot of stupid shit in his free time.
nazerine comes after l but before r.
rune_devros likes Touhou, making Touhou games, and was far too amused by Mirrored Anime Screenshots not to contribute. He runs Iyashikei Mondays, Slice-of-life Sundays, and Not-Iyashikei Tuesdays, SCCSAV viewing groups. He can be found on twitter at @rune_devros.
ryett watches too much anime for his own good and as a result he finds way too many screenshots of the mirrored variety. When not watching anime, he can be found playing League of Legends, listening to math rock, or on Twitter at @chrisbzay.
Q: How come the picture layout changed?
A: Tumblr recently changed the way photosets work, and we felt this was the best way to adapt. Plus, now you get to see the original image!
Q: What is the source for the anime face in your awesome logo?
It’s Kuroko from A Certain Scientific Railgun; more specifically, the original screenshot was from one of the MMR DVD specials. Tinypic ate the old picture, so now the header features… er… one of the girls from Shining Hearts ~Shiawase no Pan~!
Q: I have a question that isn’t one of these two.
A: Ask away!
