To which I cringe, because while I love and have been greatly influenced by anime and manga (see my Inspirations post), I am actually trying hard to make my comic NOT look like anime! I'm trying to emerge my own unique style, and I don't like it being categorized like that when I know there are differences between my style and anime style.
"What about it looks like anime?" I sometimes ask. The character's eyes aren't showing on the card, so it can't be huge typical anime eyes. People are usually stumped here and say "Um, it just does!" One guy said "The mouth looks like anime!"
When I invented my AER HEAD characters years ago, though, the style was VERY anime:
Those eyes are GINORMOUS! Now THAT looks like anime, no doubt about it! That's a screen cap from an animation I did in 2004 called "Cute but Deadly." Btw, the character on the left in green (Andy) is the same one on my business card.
But even now, when I sketch characters really quickly, the style tends to look anime-like, maybe because it's more simplified:
But to me, my final comic pages these days don't jump out at me and say "anime."
There is probably the underlying anime drawing style still there, and as much as I try to change it, it still shines through. One of my professors said that sometimes you just have a certain style, and nobody can beat it out of you. But hey, maybe the anime-like style will attract some anime fans :)
