It's kind of incredible how flexible the traditional anime formula is:
- young, naturally talented, sorta bland hero
- arch, overdramatic villain
- reliable, loyal best friends
- some central conceit that everything revolves around
It's so broadly-applicable, it even works with UNO. Yes, the card game you played when you were a kid. As proven by Youtuber JelloApocalypse (based on the comic by ScribbleCee), anime works with basically anything.
