Japan’s Anime Craze

By Wayne Torres

Simply put, anime is a form of cartoon animation created in Japan, which explains animes formerly-popular moniker, Japanimation. Anime’s history began at the start of the 20th century. This was when Japanese filmmakers began trying out new animation techniques that were being used in the Western world. Anime did not reach mainstream status until the 1980s, and since then it has blown up not only in Japan, but around the globe.

Anime comes in many categories and genres. The fact that anime is universal makes it possible for everyone to love. Creativity pays for their popularity. Reading anime is perhaps not much different from watching movies for those who are addicted. Go to the market and you will see drama, horror, action, thriller, and sensual animes easily, to mention a few.

Animation itself allows anime creators to convey just about any storyline they desire. It is much easier to make a cartoon about large robots featuring huge action and destruction sequences than it is to produce a live-action film including the same things.

With recent advances in CGI animators have even more power to transfer their wildest imaginations on to a screen. Storylines, characters, and settings are limited only to what creators can conjure up in their minds.

Though animes seem to be simple cartoons, many of them have deeper storylines and character development. This may be conveyed through the use of character-based flashbacks, which portray part of a character’s past to the viewer, allowing them to understand why they act a certain way or say what they say.

Even the drama animes are created rich. You have the drama part, for sure. But there can also be humor, philosophical messages, and thoughtful ideas at once. It is for both men and women.

Needless to say, not all animes are just cartoons for kids. In fact, the majority of animes feature violence, sexual innuendos, and language that may not be suitable for children. This is likely a major reason why anime’s popularity has exploded across the world.

Overall, animes are enjoyable by all groups of age. Adults can get what they want, and so do children and teenagers because there are many genres and combination of them.

After knowing the basic information of anime, you should try to find ones if you have not. Find some genres of your interest, and then some reviews or summaries to start. Anime is for everyone.
