Learning about Anime

I'm trying to write a post about each of persona's categories, the next is Anime. Anime is something I don't know a lot about, which isn't a very good start. I know it's basically adult cartoon books, and I think these are extended to films, cartoons and associated stuff. It's in fact the kind of thing my brother loves. He likes manga, which are backwards adult cartoon books. Backwards because they start at the back of the book. Out of curiosity I googled what Anime actually is, and Wikipedia says that it is Japanese cartoons, so I guess my idea of manga comics is along the right line. Although I think anime is actually film or cartoons on TV. The closest I've come is a Ds game I used to play, it was an investigation game based in Japan with those kinds of graphics. It was fun, but not fun enough to buy the sequel.

Neat idea writing a post for each persona paper category. I am trying to comment today on one post from each category. My husband used to love anime when he was alive. He played video games with anime characters, watched movies and read the anime books. He owned a ton of the books and movies when he died. I gave them all to his best friend to enjoy after he died. He really appreciated it and I know he would be the only one to care about them like my husband did.

Perhaps, you should try watching some anime. I am not certain your tastes, so I'm not certain which to suggest for you specifically. However, some of the ones I've enjoyed over the years have included: Inuyasha, Death Note, Moon Phase, Shikabane Hime ("Corpse Princess") and Case Closed.

My youngest is a Manga artist and a huge fan of anime. The artwork is stunning and she attends the conferences/exhibitions where they dress up and she makes her own costumes for that so its actually really beneficial for her experience wise

I've been considering writing in as many of the categories as i can too, but Anime would stump me!

Maybe you can add this one on your note, that though it is all purely japanese, many filipino artist are involve in creating the characters and animation of some. Specially the Dragon Ball Z. It is so cool to learn things inside your favorite or if not of the most famous master piece on earth.

I would like to know the difference between anime and manga -- and even more how they are actually any different from other cartoons, illustrations and caricatures.

I believe Hellsing Ultimate should always come with a warning. It is quite violent and very bloody. But your list does have some variety. I've been suggested Monster before, but I really don't think it is my cup of tea.

Anime is actually a cartoon, either a TV show or movie. Anime=animation. Manga is a comic. Most anime is based on comics. The difference from other cartoons? Well... more of it is geared towards an older crowd... and it's Japanese so it can be a little weird to us Westerners. If you're going to try watching it, it would probably be better to start off with something that the U.S. has deemed worthy enough to dub in English lol. It may seem a bit less weird. Disney does a lot of dubs for Studio Ghibli which makes anime feature films.
