Don't know if you were aware of it, but after the successful Dragon's Lair (remember the swordsman wearing the eloquent name of Dick ?), there were a few attempts to make animes-like Arcade games with predefined video sequences.
Some of them were quite impressive (most are avalaible via the Daphne emulator), albeit with average to poor gameplay.
Plz check out Midway's Astron Belt
(graphics by Toeik, the famous anime studio), who used to run on *ss-whoopin' laserdisk hardware from Hitachi.
