Things to keep in mind when drawing anime or manga eyes from different angles:

Drawing Anime Eyes From Any View

If both eyes are not the same distance from the viewer then the eye that is further away will always appear to be vertically narrower in comparison to the one that is closer.

Perspective

When drawing the eyes of a character that is really close to the viewer draw the farther eye smaller than the one that is closer. This will not be as noticeable if the character you are drawing is far away.

Top Down View

When drawing the eyes from the top down view draw the top of the eyes flatter. The reason for this is that the eyelids will be more visible from this angle and will appear to cover more of the eyes.

Bottom Up View

When drawing the eyes from the bottom up view draw the top of the eyes more curved. The reason for this is that when looking at the eyes from this angle the eyelids will become more hidden behinds the curvature of the eyelids.

Choosing the Right View

Using the right views/angles can really emphasize the emotions of the character you are drawing. Try combining the eyes from the How to Draw Anime Eyes and Eye Expressons Tutorial with the different views in this one and you can get some interesting results.
