What is anime?
Anime refers to a specific style of cartoon produced or inspired by Japanese animation. In short, all anime shows are cartoons, but not all cartoons are anime. The art style associated with anime is very unique and recognizable. You’re probably familiar with the large eyes, wild hair, long arms and limbs, and more. This exaggerated design helps the characters more easily express emotions.
In the U.S., most anime is classified as a niche form of entertainment, especially for adults. It’s looped in alongside other aesthetic fandoms and often left to the wayside of mainstream entertainment. In Japan, however, anime is a culturally accepted and fairly basic form of entertainment for adults.
