I have a friend who loves anime. She told me about nightcore and the characters in anime look like the characters in nightcore.

Are nightcore and anime the same thing?

Nightcore is the name for a type of music edit, making things a bit faster and higher pitched. From what I've seen, it's mostly done on songs from anime, or japanese songs, and have anime-like imagery associated with it.

A nightcore edit is a remix track that speeds up the pitch and time of its source material by 10-30%. The name is derived from Nightcore, a Norwegian duo who released pitch-shifted versions of trance and eurodance songs, but now more broadly refers to any sped-up music.

The wikipedia article has more on it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nightcore

As for anime, it's the term used for animated shows and movies, typically referring to those created in Japan.

No, nightcore is not Anime.

Nightcore is a music genre where the pitch and speed of a song is changed. It is also sometimes known as nighstep or sped up dubstep.

The nightcore videos do often come paired with anime-related images instead of music videos, but is usually not related to the depicted anime whatshowever.
