Some random facts about anime and manga I found on teh internet

1.The word "anime" (pronounced ahn-e-may) is synonymous with, and often used to describe the art of Japanese animation.

2.Anime is not synonymous with 'cartoon' despite the popular belief held by the uneducated masses. Anime is considered to be an art form by those who appreciate it, and is not specifically intended for children like American cartoons often are. A wide range of audiences are targetted with complicated, indepth, and emotional storylines.

3. In Japan, there are more than 40 new animes appear on television per week

4.In Japan more paper are used to print manga than toilet paper.

5.Anime began in 1917 by Japanese artists: Shimokawa Oten, Jun’ichi Kouchi, and Seitarō Kitayama.

6.In Japanese manga means 'whimsical pictures'

7.All manga is drawn by hand

8.TEZUKA Osamu is the most famous manga artis in Japan


I hope you enjoyed these few facts that I found.

1. Cowboy Bebop: Where to start? Well, the thing I always note about this show is how great the soundtrack to it is, as well as the opening and ending. Yoko Kanno and Seatbelts just win jazz for me. And 'Flying Teapot', 'Adieu' and 'Blue'. Honestly, the three tracks on there, as far as I'm concerned. Next, the characters. Spike Spiegel. This guy is plain awesome - he might be a bit strange, but he grows on you over time and they developed him excellently, portraying him as a bounty hunter right at the start, with no strings attached. Then, we find out about Julia. Then, the Syndicate. And,...

In the world of Shounen, who do you think of?



When you think about heroes in the world of Shounen, you probably think of these guys: Naruto Uzumaki, Son Goku, Monkey D. Luffy, and Ichigo Kurosaki. They’re significant members of the "over-powered hero" club and are a few of the many characters who may have inspired the creation of your hero. Perhaps you’re an aspiring writer like me who wants to create a hero similar to these characters, but stands out as an original. Before we dig into what kind of unique qualities we can give our characters, let’s start with the foundational elements...

ANIME! ^____^

An awesome source of entertainment that's basically Japanese cartoons often inspired by manga, or Japanese comic-like novels. AND THEY KICKED ASS! :D

Seriously, half my life is just watching anime, and I almost love every one I see. And this list is celebrating THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF.....

Uh, canned bread? :P I don't know, I just wanted to make this list.

The rules are obvious. Only entries from anime I've seen, they have to be from anime, and they have to be FREAKING AWESOME SAUCE! ^__^ (That didn't even make sense.....)

So kick out the popcorn, soda, get comfortable, and enjoy!...

A weebo is much like an Otaku. Weebo's-or commonly misspelled, Weaboo- is an over obsessive fan of Japanese culture, and are giving Otakus a bad name. They revolve their whole lives around anime and manga, usually with the main stream material. The common Otaku likes anime, and does occasionally cosplay. Weebos just cosplay and watch anime to be like the Otakus. Weebos are usually friends with Otakus, and want to impress them. (So they watch Naruto, Inuyasha, etc.)
Most weebos speak Waponese, or use google translate to act like they know Japanese.
They misuse the words "Baka," "Kawaii desu,""Moshi-Moshi," "Aishiteru," and so much more.
Most of them use names on chatrooms with the word "Anime," "Kitty," "Maid," and "Manga" beware!
The otakus would like them out of their fanbase, please.

^ THIS IS LIKE HALF THE FREAKING ANIME CLUB.
