Anime comes from the Japanese abbreviation of "animation" which for all Japanese means animated cartoons but for the rest of the world Anime means Japanese cartoon animation, a very specific kind. Anime is a style that started in the early 20th century in Japan and continue to attract followers from around the globe. The characteristic style of anime started to take shape in the 1960's in adaptation to manga (Japanese comics).

Many supporters refer to anime as an art form. There are three main styles FLCC(wild and exaggerated),Only yesterday- Jin Roh (tends to be more realistic), Pokémon (drawings that make no difference of the nationality of characters). The most common Anime form includes exaggerated features as big eyes &hair, dramatic speech bubbles, exclamation signs, speed lines and onomatopoeic.

I find Anime interesting at least the one I have seen. My younger brother is a big fan and sort indoctrinated everyone around so my liking may be results of the intense brain wash. I even made a small painting of Misato Katsuragi from "Neon Genesis Evangelion", I didn't get to finish it but my brother still keeps it. Anime could be a fad but certainly is innovative and original.

      thanks for your compliments!. I sincerely hope, I can keep writing about interesting subjects.

      Night shift, that's hard work. Your coffee must be extra strong then. Unfortunately, I haven't been in the Louvre yet but I plan to save for next fall and expend a week in Paris(visit the 3must-see Louvre, D'orsay,Musée marmottan Monet)

      ...well because art is all about the 'future' it then is very important to examine and explore what lies ahead in the here and now (the new vanguard, if you will) and the near future ..... I would say you represent the 'future' of great art hubs here at the Hub - and I enjoy the concise and to the point way you shed/share light on each of your subjects ......

      lake erie time 6:04pm ontario canada (finally having my morning wake up coffee now - such is the life of a night shift worker - have you been to the Louvre?
