I just had a thought...what if anime characters were just acting?

I just had a thought that made me think of anime in a different picture..

You know how there are many different kinds of American TV series and how they have actors? Well, what if anime characters lived in a world just like we did, reality, and all of the anime characters in the animes were just acting? The characters in the animes have entirely different names than they do in the anime world in real life.

For example, Lucy Heartfillia in Fairy Tail would just be an actor in a TV series called Fairy Tail, and would have an entirely different name in the real life Anime universe. So Lucy's "real name" could actually be Chise Hamisaki.

Another example could be Mermaid Melody. Luchia Nanami would be an actor in Mermaid Melody, and could be acting like she was a mermaid princess for the whole entire TV show. In the real life Anime universe, she would not have any supernatural mermaid powers, and would live in a reality just like us, except in a different universe.

Sorry I am making zero sense, it's just that I had this thought after the end of Mermaid Melody Pure.

That idea has been done before to different extents.

I can think of two series for example.

1. Nurse Witch Komugi-chan + Soul Taker.
: Nurse Witch Komugi-chan takes place in a world where everyone assumes that Soul Taker is just a TV show. The characters from Soul Taker are just actors in Nurse Witch Komugi-chan.

2. Cosprayers, Love<3Love?, Hit wo Nerae
: Cosprayers was an action anime. I think Love<3Love? was a harem anime that assumed that the characters from Cosprayers were actresses. Hit wo Nerae was an anime that took place in the office business section behind Cosprayers.

I think there may have been other series that have done this too.

Yeah.. I've heard that some actors look like anime characters s it might work.

Well, people in anime do watch anime...

So I guess so. It'd be like if a TV show had someone watching the Avengers, but Robert Downey Jr. is just an act...

*mind blown*

CLAMP too...

And Gintama is an obvious one... for the commenter above.... >.>

What about anime titles about voice actors? Like Shirobako? Characters acting as characters acting as characters?

INCEPTION.

But seriously... It works for some, others, not so much.

Sounds sort of like the premise behind Who Framed Roger Rabbit? if you think of the tunnel to Toon Town as a multidimensional portal.

I kinda get it but I really don't. You mean.. After an intense episode of Dragon Ball, Goku would remove his saiyan wig and hang out with the people who act as Piccolo and Roshi, then go home to his wife (who isn't Chi Chi) and child (not Gohan), then watch Dr. Slump (which Goku starred in when he was a kid)?
