Video reveals that every anime uses the same OP photo

We're on to you now, anime studios! This mash-up video is overwhelming proof that every anime opening uses the same stock footage.

The video's creator, Derek Lieu, said he was amused by the repeat imagery he saw and wanted to make a video to prove the point. Though the video has gotten a mostly positive response, he wrote on Twitter that anime fans were angry about the video and thought he made it to make anime look bad. But, "who would put that much effort into something they hate?"

Watch the video after the jump and be sure to click through to YouTube to view the full list of anime titles used -- all 93 of them!
