While watching anime, i'll come across scenes where there is a reference to anime itself or even a line of dialogue joking about it, giving it a hint of meta.

Down below, post images of meta you have seen in an anime!

Also, in case you do not know what meta means, here's a link to help you out!

Hmm, not necessarily. Shirobako is a great example. Just mentioning anime and its mechanics in an anime would count. A poster of an anime in the background would count. Small things like that.
