35 Surprising Facts About Anime
In Japanese culture, anime is a revered artisticmedium. Enjoyed by men and women, young and old, and more recently on every continentâ€”animetranscends cultural boundaries and can be used as a vehicle to tell any kind of storyimaginable. Great anime aren't just quality entertainment; they can also offer cuttingsocial commentary, philosophical musings, and much, much more. Not your grandfather'sSaturday morning cartoons, to be sureâ€”thanks to Japanese artists are determined to showyou just how thematically deep the realm of animation can be.Let's take a look at some interesting facts you might not already know about anime.Around 60% of the world's cartoonanimation
entertainment is Japaneseproduced anime.The first wildly popular anime was Osamu Tezuka's Astro Boy in 1963.Astro Boy was also the first animated television series in Japan. Tezuka was greatly influencedby Disney's work during the golden age of animation, as were many of Tezuka's contemporaries.He followed up with another hit, Kimba the White Lionâ€”which, in turn, is seen by manyto have inspired the Disney classic The Lion King. Inspiration coming full circle.Early examples of Japanese animation in the 20th century were inspired by animators inAmerica and Europe, and most were adaptations of Asian folklore and legends in traditionalJapanese art styles.
Sciencefiction based mecha anime, also knownas â€œgiant robotâ€� anime, was one of the first genres to really catch on with viewersduring the anime boom of the 70's. Foundational mecha shows like Mobile Suit Gundam pavedthe way for the modern anime industry, and blazed a broad trail for others to follow.Though anime has a reputation of not catering to Western sensibilities regarding violenceand sexuality, the mid 90's series Neon Genesis Evangelion certainly tested the limitsof what was considered acceptable. Due to the often shocking and controversial contentof Evangelion, TV Tokyo began heavily censoring subsequent anime like the acclaimed CowboyBebop, resulting in only half of the episodes
produced for the space western ever airingon television. Akira is widely considered to be one of themost influential works of anime ever created, introducing anime to the western world whenit burst onto the scene in 1988. The scifi spectacular is said to have been a strongsource for the filmmakers behind modern scifi films like The Matrix, Chronicle, and Looper. The 1995 cyberpunk hit Ghost in the Shellis another visionary anime which inspired artists around the world. The Wachowskis drewupon Ghost in the Shell as well during development of The Matrix, while James Cameron and StevenSpielberg are both outspoken fans of the anime.
Many anime begin life as mangaâ€”a popularform of printed media in Japan which shares many similarities with the Western comic book,though in Japan manga doesn't suffer from the same stigma and is enjoyed by people ofall ages. After an anime gains enough popularity, feature films and tutorialgames typically followas well. In Japan more paper is used to print manga,than to make toilet paper. Hiromu Arakawa's Fullmetal Alchemist isone prominent example of a manga which spawned an anime due to its popularity, though itbears the distinction of having two fully realized and separate anime adaptations ofthe story that don't actually agree on what
the ending should be. The first anime beganproduction while Arakawa was still hard at work on the manga, and it caught up to herbefore she finished. With her approval, it diverged midway through the story and followedthe anime's unique plot threads to their own conclusion. The second anime, FullmetalAlchemist: Brotherhood, began production during the final chapters of the manga and faithfullyadapted the source material all the way to the end. In an unusual turn of events, the wildly popularPokemon franchise first appeared on the scene as a tutorialgame, with the manga and anime followingafterward.
