An easy one:

Which shapeshifting carnivore anime character likes apples very much?

Name of the character?

That would be Horo (or Holo) from Spice And Wolf. She can transform into a huge wolf.

This character was in 2 short animations but had no name at the time. The shorts were made to try and show anime at the same level as American animation. The creators are now a well known animation studio. The character got a new look in a Japanese tv show in which the character featured prominently. Because of the show, there was an anime made of that character. All these are linked directly to the first short animes.
Who is the character? Also, what were the shorts, what studio came from them, name the tv show, and the anime.
(I think Usagi will get this one)

No takers yet? Ok a few more clues.
The anime shorts are banned for reproduction and sale because because of an infringement suit by Playboy. Because of that the laserdisks that contain the only sold copies are highly sought after and sell for over $1000.
Also, the op from the anime plays often on AD and has been in the top 10 songs list.

Well, got the pieces, but still no picture....

One of the shorts might be this one. (If not, it is still great) :

No Touhou...this character is more than 10 years earlier than any Touhou character.

Ok, time to solve this one.
The character is Getsumento Heiki Mina (?? ? ?? ????, Lunar Rabbit Weapon Mina)
One of Japans anime conventions (DAICON) asked a group of amateur animators still in university to make a short anime for the opening ceremony of DAICON III. It was so well done they were asked to make a second one for DAICON IV. The animators are the founders of Gainax.
The tv show is Densha Otoko. A romance/comedy about a boy who saves a girl on a train. But the boy is obsessed with a bunny girl from an anime featured on the show. Getsumento Heiki Mina. The opening credits for that anime include the music and most of the animation story of the DAICON shorts. But the look was changed a bit. (less 70s look)
Because of the tv series people asked for a real anime to be made. So they came out with Getsumento Heiki Mina the animated series.

I got a private message in the CB saying that there is no real link between these shows, so I will paste a clip from Wiki :
"Though rival anime studio Gonzo produced the Densha Otoko opening and is referenced several times in the series, the producers acknowledged Gainax's work by putting their name in the credits before that of Gonzo."

Yes, there have been other characters inspired by the DAICON girl, but this is the only one directly connected through the animation sequences and music.
(even FLCL Haruko in the bunny suit and ears, riding a guitar in the air, and screaming "I am DAICON V!!")
