In regards to this discussion of conlag inspiration by anime, let me say
that my current obsession is BLACK & WHITE by this artist Taiyou ("Sun").
It's available in English these days, and it knocks my socks off.
In terms of conlang/conworlds, the ones I adore are those sprawling, insane
conglomerations of meta-worlds from SquareSoft - there's one, I forget
offhand which, that features a marketplace with signs in the most amazing
confluence of real-world langs I've ever seen - signs Japanese-style with
characters and kana, only the 'kana' are the Aramaic letters used to print
Hebrew, funky Slavicisms, etc.
