Artist Tatsuya Shingyoji has recreated some of rock's most iconic album covers using popular characters from the anime TV series 'Puella Magi Madoka Magica'. The 2011 show is known for defying tradition and has spawned a huge fan following that is the inspiration behind this visually vivid series.

Tatsuya Shingyoji is known for his suggestive animations that gained popularity in the 80s and is making headlines again with this cleverly conceived series of portraits. The set was first posted on image-sharing website Pixiv where it became an instant hit among music and anime lovers alike.

Some iconic records in the series include The Beatles' "Let it Be", The Rolling Stones' "Love You Live" and Aerosmith's cyborg -infused "Just Push Play" cover art.
