  3. 3. What is Anime? • Put simply, anime is animation from Japan. • Anime is a medium, not a genre. Saying “I like anime” is akin to saying “I like movies.” It includes the same genres as every other medium: drama, romance, comedy, sports, action, horror, sci-fi, fantasy, erotica and so on. • So basically, Anime could be seen as Japan’s “Hollywood.”
  4. 4. Common Misconceptions • Anime is for kids • Anime = violent / pornographic / big eyes / big breasts / big robots
  5. 5. (Brief) History of Anime
  6. 6. Early 1900s • At the start of the 20th century, Japanese filmmakers experimented with the animation techniques that were being explored in other countries, especially in the U.S. (Disney). • By the 1930s, animation became an alternative format of storytelling compared to the underdeveloped live-action industry in Japan. Two reasons: – Unlike America, the live-action industry in Japan remained a small market and suffered from budgeting, location, and casting restrictions. – The lack of Western-looking actors, in addition, made it next to impossible to shoot films set in Europe, America, or fantasy worlds that do not naturally involve Japan. The varied use of animation allowed artists to create any characters and settings.
