Anime Wallpaper is basically a free program that comes with 1000s of unique, cute anime pictures in various resolutions for you to pick from. It comes with several dozen high definition cute anime images for you to pick from, depending on your current mood, who you're with, what anime or manga you are watching right now and even where you are. By picking an image, you can either save it to your desktop to use as an example of your screen resolution or you can pick out your favorite from the bunch and save it to your personal folder, to use as a wallpaper on your computer. There are also several other special functions that the program also has like the ability to convert the selected picture into a wallpaper, so if for some reason you can't find the exact image you want, it'll be possible to create it.
There are two places where you can get Anime Wallpaper: on Amazon and MetaCafe. On Amazon, there are two separate options: one is the “Mystery Gift” option which is the free version, while the premium “Mystery Gift” option is where you have to pay. The free version only has a few wallpapers, such as the character Vito from Death Note, and the anime wallpaper I used for my desktop (tops left and right in this picture). While paying for the “Mystery Gift” option, which has more than ten genres and a wide array of images to pick from, you will also gain access to wallpapers for other anime series like Lucky Star, Bungou Stray Dogs, Evangelion, Bleach, Black Butler, Kill La Matica, Fullmetal Alchemist, Dragon Ball Z and Mobile Suit Gundam. In addition to those I mentioned, there's also several others.
The most popular and easiest way to get Anime Wallpapers is probably to go to one of the many Reddit forums dedicated to anime or video games. There are some fantastic “corporate” forums out there, where the head admin of the company that runs the forum is forced to stick his neck out and up-front his views on things by moderators. If the head admin wants to keep some controversy going, he has to do it here. By posting links to some of the wallpapers on his personal user profile, the image of his anime desk will be spread across the Internet, thus giving people a little taste of what anime has to offer without him having to say a word.
Some good anime wallpapers might include pictures from the Visual Novel Type productions. There are actually a number of these Visual Novels out there, written by Hato Moa writer, Yuusuke Tozawa. The author did not get to fully express what he wanted in his story, so the wallpapers are not exactly in color, but they have a cool, artistic feel to them. One of these Japanese-themed wallpapers would look great on any computer.
For something a bit more “out there”, one could try looking for some old anime wallpapers that no longer exist. This can be a great way to find some of the older anime that fans have been waiting for. The problem with this option is that most of the wallpapers that you find on sites like Deviant Art or Kaunei may not be copyright free. If you do happen to find something like this, chances are it's already posted on somewhere else, or the original artist is dead, or too busy to make more wallpapers. You could save a bunch of money by using someone else's work, but you have to be sure you can trust them.
In the end, it all depends on what kind of image you want on your desktop computer. If you want something with artistic value, then anime wallpapers are a great way to go. If you just want something that is still kind of cool, then you could always use your favorite Minitokyo image.
