    This is like asking why the US became a Super Power when the British burnt down the capital during the war of 1812... (They rebuilt of course... isn't this obvious?!?!)
    FAVOURITE THREADS EXPLAIN why, or risk an infraction.

    You do realize that Japan consists of more then just two cities right?

    And the cities that were bombed were Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

    Actually more cities were bombed than those two. They are just the two most famous but may not have the most casualties. Tokyo was bombed with disastrous consequences. Osaka was also bombed so heavily people ran into the ocean to get away from the incendiary bombs loaded with dozens of gallons of fuel. It is recounted in vivid detail in their memorial museum. Sasebo was also bombed. In fact explosives experts had to come out to dispose of a bomb unearthed when building a new gym.

    But to answer the real question, because it was after world war 2. During the war Japan was in a state of forced nationalism. Animation got a huge boost sue to government interest. A sort of pro war propaganda to pander to children. So when the war ended there was a surplus of animation. Of course it involved into what it is now. Interesting point is that the WW 2 era is when the first feature length anime was created. War is good for some industries.
