Or perhaps anime inspires the West more than people think. Either way one thing is clear: Omni-Directional Mobility Gear is way cooler than a bow and arrow.

Looks more like one of the old D&D image covers, like this one. Not everything is anime-related. Get over it.

I get what Thunder_God is saying but to imply that the image DOESN'T look like AoT, well...c'mon. It really does.
