Anime also tends to borrow many elements from [[manga]] including text in the background, and borrowing panel layouts from the manga as well. For example, an opening may employ manga panels to tell the story, or to dramatize a point for humorous effect. This is best demonstrated in the anime ''[[Kare Kano]]''.
