Nowadays, most erotic works in Japan are designed simply to be superficially attractive and create sexual titillation. A few exceptional artists, among them Miki Maruhashi and Mani Rho, integrate figures from modern animation into traditional shunga, in an effort to highlight the similarities as well as the changes in costumes and in the style and the taste of the periods and the artists. Another exception is the artist Hiroyuki Kojima, who skillfully combines animation figures into scenes from ancient and traditional Japan.
