Animastar (アニマスター) is an RPG for the Sega Dreamcast.

Animastar was originally planned to be compatible with a Game Boy Color Animastar game (which became Animastar GB, released in 2001). It would have used a special cable to link the Dreamcast console and Game Boy Color handheld together[1], but the idea was scrapped.
