It’s always nice when real life people influence anime creators, or vice versa. In this case, various Witch Craft Works album covers have been inspired by and pay tribute to German electronic music band Kraftwerk.
The cover for the Witch Craft Works Character Song Album looks identical to the album cover of Kraftwerk’s 1977 album Trans-Europe Express.
While the cover of the single for the ending theme Witch Activity looks suspiciously like the album cover of Kraftwerk’s 1978 album The Man-Machine.
and finally, the cover for the Witch Craft Works Original Soundtrack is the same as Kraftwerk’s 1974 breakthrough album, Autobahn.
This reminds me of when Cromartie High School was also inspired by various music artists’ covers for the DVD volume covers:
Cromartie High School DVD volume 1 cover was inspired by the second album Queen released in 1974, Queen II.
Cromartie High School DVD volume 2 cover was inspired by The Beatles’ 1963 album Please Please Me.
Cromartie High School DVD volume 3 cover was inspired by Sailin’ Shoes, the second studio album by the American rock band Little Feat, released in 1972.
Last but not least, Cromartie High School DVD volume 4 cover was inspired by Deep Purple’s fourth album Deep Purple in Rock which was released in 1970.
