    Re: Help me !!what is this anime?

    Using the definitions of animation targeted for a Japanese audience, what are the distinguishing characteristics of an Anime series? I find the following list applicable to nearly all Anime series…

    1. Big Eyes. Adopted by Japanese Manga artist in the late 1940s and early 50s from American comic strips such as ‘Betty Boop’, and the early animation of Walt Disney, Large eyes are used to express a wide range of emotions. It is this characteristic that appears most often in Anime influenced American cartoon series….

    2. Highly detailed backgrounds. This is used in nearly all Anime series, including children programs, and almost never occurs in American Cartoons series.

    3. The use of single and multi-layered Pans, Rotations and Zooms to give the illusion of motion from a still image. Japanese producers and directors are much more experienced in the use of these cost cutting techniques then US productions.

    4. Japanese Cultural references. (Considering the target audience, this is not surprising)

    5. Long multiple episode story arcs and strict ordering of episodes. Japanese Anime TV are often created (or adopted from a manga or novel) for a single season series for a fixed story, and shown with strict ordering of episodes, like the chapters in a book. American Cartoon series are often designed for long lasting re-runs showings with a random ordering of individual shows. A individual story arc may extend to two, or rarely three episodes in a American cartoon series, while in Japanese Anime, a story arc may extend to the entire length of a series.

    6. Character Growth and Emotional Development. Because of the random ordering of reruns, this characteristic almost never appears in American cartoons, but with the long anime story arcs, this is present in nearly all Anime series. Teenaged main characters are quite common in Anime for the potential of character growth.


    7. Subject topics in episodes. Because of the popularity of character growth in Anime, events that have a profound effect on characters are much more common. Even in children anime series, subjects involving ethical/moral decisions, personal honor and integrity are much more common then in US cartoons.
