Japanese Anime

something cool by Jo economidis

Many people in the U.S. have probably heard of cartoons like Sailor Moon, Dragonball Z, Voltron, Gundam Wing, Speed Racer, Digimon, and the ever so popular Pokemon; Famous cartoons that have bizarre character designs: female characters with beautiful round eyes, hair that is incredibly big, and gorgeous figure and physique. Male characters would usually have enormously huge muscles (as seen in Dragonball Z and GT), powerful bodies and maybe, on occasion, have gigantic robots as seen in cartoons like Robotech and Gundam Wing.

Where did all these cartoons come from? To find the answer one must look no further than in Japan, the birthplace of Japanese animation, the main source for all of this madness.

Pretty cool huh Japanese anime is very popular. The first generation of animators in the late 1910s included Ōten Shimokawa, Jun'ichi Kōuchi and Seitaro Kitayama.

Japanese anime They have made Pokemon, Naruto, Dragon ball etc. And all of those are Amazing.

Here is an image of Naruto.

But my personal favourite Japanese anime would probably have to be Pokemon.

Piplup and pikachu

In the 1980s, anime was accepted in the mainstream in Japan, and experienced a boom in production. The rise of Gundam, Macross, Dragon Ball, and the Real Robot, space opera and cyberpunk genres set a boom as well. and here is some images of.

And The film Akira set records in 1988 for the production costs of an anime film and went on to become a success worldwide. Later, in 2004, the same creators produced Steamboy, which took over as the most expensive anime film. Space Battleship Yamato and The Super Dimension Fortress Macross also achieved worldwide success after being adapted respectively as Star Blazers and Robotech. and here is some more images of

The first best Japanese anime for most people was Dragon Ball Z. this makes me so sad because Pokemon was awarded 16th place and this makes me sad again because Naruto was 4th place fairy tale was 5th place. number 18 was dragon ball. 20th place was the last Airbender and number 35 Yu-gi-oh. here is more images of.

In conclusion I think all animators are very creative and one day I wish to be one of them.
