I know what you mean about Anime characters having larger heads proportionately than real humans, but when you do this effect with lens distortions, it does not look the same as the "Anime Style" you referred to. Anime characters with large heads look large even when drawn from a undistorted perspective. When you see them straight on ( from waist level), rather than from the lens being over them, they have large heads. Shooting from high up also shortens the body and the legs.
