Major Anime Influences

The Wachowski brothers drew from a lot of various sources for The Matrix films and one of them is anime. Two anime shows, in particular, provided major influences for the films. They were Ghost in the Shell and Akira which the siblings liked for their stylized fight sequences and tone. They like these anime shows so much that they even told the producers that they wanted the films to feel like a live-action anime.

    "I could actually see the inspiration as I was watching the movie and that's not a bad thing. Ghost in the Shell is an amazing anime show ahead of its time and couldn't have been a better inspiration for the movie. Cool fact indeed."
