    Question Questions about Anime

    I have been wondering about a few things concerning anime.

    1) How come most female characters in anime have large breasts?

    2) According to the dictionary, anime is Japanese animation. Now, if an American company makes an anime series, is the series still considered anime even though it wasn't made in Japan or by Japanese animators?

    3) What is better: subbed or dubbed?

    for your first question- most female have large breast in anime because us (viewers) like chicks with big breast so they draw them like that.

    second question-It won't be consider as anime because if it was made out of Japan.

    third question- Both subbed and dubbed have their advantages and disavantages, for some poeple subbed is better and for some other people dubbed is better.

    I prefer my anime women to have medium-sized bosoms; to me, medium-sized breasted chicks are easier to draw.

    1. Its all about the fanservice. Most anime fans are teenage males (or at large portion of them) so of course they want to see skinny girls with big boobs. And since anime is drawn you can make the most unrealistic characters ever to appeal to fans. Though not all anime girls have big boobs.

    2. Now I'm not 100% sure about this, but I don't think any cartoon that isn't made in Japan can be considered anime. I know a lot of American companies are making anime-like cartoons nowadays, but I wouldn't call it anime. So no, its not.

    3. Total depends on your preference. Dubs generally sound worse due to lack of decent voice actors, but some dubs are actually quite good (Cowboy Bebop comes to mind). Subs are good if you want the authentic Japanese voices which are often vastly superior to the English counterparts. I'd say the only disadvantage of a sub would be if you can't read and follow the story at the same time. But anime fans generally don't have a problem with that.

    because the big breastises cancel out the cute innocence of their heart shaped faces!! otherwise everything would end up looking like powerpuffgirls!! honestly, i do like my females to have large breastises becuz they put the sassy in fantasy!! oh and i think they call it anime becuz theyre using anime as a shorter word for animation.

    sub is much better than dub. the eastern voice actors do a better job than the western ones, and also if it's dub the mouth moves out of time with the words which can sometimes get really annoying.

    1) It depends on the anime.

    2) No. Anime doesn't have to be made in Japan, or for that matter even by Japanese artists (they're outsourcing it these days), but it does have to be made for a Japanese audience to be considered anime.

    3) That depends entirely on the individual.
