What is Anime?
Anime is Japanese style hand-drawn or computer generated animation. The word is derived from the abbreviation of the word "animation" and in Japanese this term references all animation. Outside Japan, anime is generally used to refer specifically to animation from Japan or as a Japanese disseminated animation style often characterised by vibrant graphics, extreme characters and fantasy themes. Many Westerners view anime as an animation product from Japan. Some people suggest defining anime as quintessentially Japanese may be related to a new form of orientalism.
Generally in modern times, Anime (pronounced ah-nee-may ) is a common term for a style of Japanese comic book and video cartoon animation in which the main characters have large doe-like eyes. There are many cult web sites and clubs devoted to anime. Anime is the prevalent style in Japanese comic books. In Japan, the comic is a popular form of entertainment for adults as well as children. Story lines are often very sophisticated and complex and extend into episodes. Typical anime themes or genres include Ninja and other martial arts, and cover topics such as the supernatural, horror stoies, romance and science fiction. Opposites to the main characters, such as robots, monsters or bad people, usually lack the doe-eyed quality.
