Recently the first episode of I’m Standing on a Million Lives anime was telecast and few animators took it to a whole different level by recreating the first episode with royalty-free illustrations. Crunchyroll featured them on their IGTV account today.
They only used the stock images to make the whole animation. The images are created with Irasutoya which is commonly used throughout Japan in worksheets & presentation etc. But it was never used to create an anime before. You can watch the full episode on Asmik Ace youtube channel. The similarities are just stunning.
