Sci-Fi Anime Tees

With its often teen and adult-oriented focus, another of Japanese anime's primary appeals is the tremendous breadth of genres offered. Whether you're into award-winning Studio Ghibli works or something more action-oriented like you might see on Adult Swim, it's not hard to find something that appeals.

Naturally, as nerd-oriented as the medium is in the first place, there's no lack of science fiction offerings, either. Whether you're looking for something Gundam or pretty much anything animated by Sunrise, we've got some cool tees here for you!
