Anime Tarot Decks
Anime Tarot cards and decks, created in the style of anime, manga, or other Japanese cartoons and comics.
The Clow Cards are 52 magical cards revealed in the manga and anime series, Cardcaptor Sakura. Not strictly a tarot or oracle deck, the cards have descriptive titles like 'The Cloud', 'The Light' and 'The Illusion'. The art of each card is very similar in colour and styling. Card titles are in English.
The Comic Tarot is a large-size humorous deck of 22 cards, with illustrations inspired by comic books, graphic novels and cartoons. The deck also includes a previously unpublished mini graphic novel. Self-published by the artist through The Game Crafter.
A gorgeous and unique tarot of the Fey, not the British fairies, but a more universal variety depicted in art with an anime feel. The Fey Tarot is a well-thought out and carefully designed tarot set for readers of all ages - and a beautiful, playful deck full of its own unique magic.
The Fradella Adventure Tarot is a comic-style deck of superheroes and villains, featuring characters from the fictional 'Cyber Age Adventures' universe by Frank Fradella.
Les Adorables has thin, long cards illustrated in a cute watercolour anime style. It's majors only but has 23 cards - the extra is the Happy Squirrel card, made famous by 'The Simpsons'.
The Lorland Chen Tarot is a majors-only deck from China, published as a limited edition of 300 copies. The art is atmospheric, part anime and part fantasy novel, and is titled in English.
The Love and Mystery Tarot is a romantic Japanese published tarot deck with comic-book like art. It uses the Rider-Waite structure, but the images aren't traditional. Titles on the 78 cards are printed at the top and bottom so it's possible to read them reversed or upright.
The Manga Tarot is from Taiwanese artist Selena Lin who specialises in shojo, a romantic style of comic especially for teenage girls. Her 78 cards are pretty and filled with cute, big-eyed characters. Packaged as a set in a hinged, rigid cardboard box with a 64-page book.
This Manga Tarot is a a deck connected with the Eastern imagination, as illustrated in the comics known as manga. It has attractive artwork which is in the manga/anime style (but not exaggeratedly so), and the symbolism is fairly recognisable. There is one significant change however - cards that traditionally showed a man now show a woman, and vice versa.
The Sailor Tarot was created as homage to the Japanese anime series, Sailor Moon, by a passionate fan. The creator, Lynyrd, has thought hard about the deck and which characters to associate with particular tarot cards.
Stayka's original tarot deck has an anime feel to the human faces and depicts tarot scenes with interest and in rich colours. The Saint Seiya Tarot is a work in progress.
The Tarot Asterix features characters and scenes from Asterix, the well-known French comic, on its double-ended cards. While named a Tarot, this is a deck intended for the game of Tarock, rather than divination or guidance.
The Vulpine Tarot is a colorful, 78-card fantasy deck characterised by its anthropomorphic foxes. The deck breaks away from the cookie-cutter imagery of Waite-Smith clones, and has a different feel inspired in part by the Witches Tarot. The deck is still in progress, as is its accompanying book.
The X War Tarot is based on the Japanese manga series, 'X'. Images from the comic have been linked with the 78 tarot cards, and surrounded by a wide orange border.
