Anime pronounced as “ah nee may” is basically a hand drawn and a computer animation that was started in Japan.
In Japanese the word anime is originated from the English word Animation. It describes all the animated works despite their style or their origin.
In addition to original work, the anime is basically an adaption of Japanese Comics, Novels, or video games.
However Anime now has a huge fan following around the World. It has now become the catch all term for animations.
From many years’ anime has been made, and for Japan it has been more like a local product with some great animations and storytelling.
The themes that were used and are used are still appealing to the audiences.
It has been 40 years since anime was first made and from then it has attracted many fans and has been translated to many languages.
There’s a huge number of fan following from the west where generations have grown up with it and are now passing it to their children.
It’s really confusing to think of anime as a genre because it isn’t. and no animation is a genre but rather showing how something is produced.
Anime shows like books and movies that goes through a number of Existing genres that are horror, comedy and so on.
The first ever Anime created was Osamu Tezuka’s Tetsuwan Atom (Astro Boy) is often miscredited as the first anime television series, premiering on January 1, 1963.

What makes Anime so Special?
Everything about anime makes it special from the storyline to its eye-catching animation and the soundtrack, of course.
Most of the anime fans sum this very question with two simple words that “it’s different”.
Anime is not like any other American cartoon like Batman and Spider Man.
The differences between them are very clear, and that includes the artwork, the story telling, the sound intensity, breadth of material and the cultural characteristics played by the characters.
The anime storyline is often focused on the adult themes and of course the dark humor. The anime art work is pretty different and stands out of other comic styles.
Even the basic anime shows for ex “Azumanga Diaoh“, proves that the basic artwork can be appealing too.
Anime has a secret of making everything look fresh and new.
Not only visually but Anime has a great way of storytelling and with the expression of feelings and emotions that catches the audience’s attention.
The attractive and appealing animations provide anime the ability to attract a huge number of audiences. Many anime are based on other stories, so the anime must end when there is no content left to adapt.
Another reason is that anime viewers have come to expect shorter shows, so studios continue to make them short (although this doesn’t explain the start of the short series trend).
Is anime okay for kids?
Anime has a huge range of subjects that range from adults to kids.
So, it’s possible to find Anime to be suitable for every age group.
Some titles are specifically for older audiences, some are for younger audiences and some are for both for example, “Pokémon” or Studio Ghibli Film “My neighbor Totoro”.
In Japanese culture nudity is handled much casually than other countries so these topics require some titles to be placed in a certain category.
Though the anime distributors are much more conscious of these issues and include an actual MPAA rating (G, PG, PG-12, R, NC-17) OR A TV parental guideline rating as an indicator to what kind of audience is intended to watch that particular show.
How is anime made?
Anime is almost completely drawn by hand.
It takes skill to draw such animation and experience to do it quickly.
They’re the ones who create all these amazing drawings after the top-level directors come up with the storyboards and the “key animators” create the important frames in each scene.
What is anime aimed at?
