Anime Lessons

Anime, at first, was simply the Japanese word for 'animation'. Now, it is more commonly used in reference to Japanese animation. Anime encompasses a wide variety of art styles, but it is generally recognized for characters with gravity-defying hairstyles and huge eyes.

  In Japan, anime is for all ages and covers all genres, such as:
        -fantasy (Final Fantasy Unlimited
        -drama (Ayashi no Ceres
        -historical fiction (Rurouni Kenshin, Peacemaker Kurogane)
        -religious symbolism (Neon Genesis Evangelion)
        -high school drama (Boys Be, Marmalade Boy) 
        -sports (Slam Dunk, Prince of Tennis)
        -sci-fi (Gundam Seed, Vandread)
        -action (Naruto, Flame of Recca)
         

     Also, anime comes in movies, tv shows, DVD series, and video games. It shows just as often as any weekly drama would in the US, and there are never re-run episodes. This is because there is more anime than an entire week's worth of broadcasting. This only touches upon the popularity of anime in Japan. Now, the demand for anime is increasing all throughout the world.
