Anime, you say?
Wikipedia states the following:
“Anime (アニメ, ˈænɨmeɪ/ or /ˈɑːnɨmeɪ/) is a style of animation originating in Japan, characterized by colorful graphics and often featuring themes intended for an adult audience. The word is the Japanese abbreviated pronunciation of “animation.” ”
Famous examples are Spirited Away (movie), Dragonball/Z/GT series, Bleach series, Naruto series, Pokémon series, Ghost in the Shell movies, Akira (movie) and many, many more.
Many anime (mostly focused on children) has become well-known outside of Japan and are mostly dubbed.
In my opinion, watching or reading anything from across our countries’ borders is a good thing. It makes you more familiar with the world “out there”, which can enrichen your writing. But why anime in particular?
