"Are you a fan of Japanese animation, or anime (ah-nee-meh), as it's known in Japan? We're not just talking Pokemon and Dragon Ball Z here. Anime is an art form.
It got its start in post- World War II Japan when Japanese illustrators began imitating American comic books. Japanese ''manga'' books became extremely popular among adults in Japan. They focus on kid stuff as well as broader aspects of life such as sex, gothic horror, the apocalypse, and the samurai code."
