The history of the anime genre goes back almost a hundred years. The term itself comes from the English word bikmation (animation). In the early 20th century, Japanese artists began experimenting with Western cartoon techniques. Gradually anime became popular, spreading all over the world. Teenagers experienced a particular interest in the genre, for whom they began to create entire series. It is for this category of viewers that most of the products are designed.
Anime stands out for its unusual manner of drawing characters and backgrounds. The main myths about anime are worth debunking.
The main characters have scary big eyes. It is believed that this is exactly the "chip" that distinguishes the genre from other cartoon styles. But the heroes have big eyes in almost any cartoon, for the same Disney. They're just more puppet. In the anime, the style is such that the eyes are not fully traced here, which is why they only seem large. In fact, this is just a visual illusion, a game with the psyche. The Japanese believe that the eyes are mirrors of the soul, therefore, all the emotionality of the character is transmitted through this place.
Drawing anime is easier than other genres. For some reason, many believe that anime drawing is simplistic and inferior to the same Disney one. But there is much more attention paid to color and drawing than in other techniques. It is very important to convey all the feelings of the heroes with the help of a drawing, while in Western techniques, emphasis is placed on the accurate transfer of physics and movements. The anime also puts a lot of emphasis on soundtrack. Taken together, this seems like a difficult job. Anime is responsible for the accurate rendering of colors that match reality. And western cartoons do not. So, the transition from light to shadow and back, changes the color of the hero, which is not found in analogues. In this case, we are talking not only about darkening, but also about changing the sheen and shade, and other parameters. Western animators are simply not puzzled by such subtleties. The underdrawing technique is often used deliberately, for the same purpose as the already mentioned large eyes.
Anime is an ordinary cartoon. Outwardly, both genres are similar. But those who are addicted to anime cannot consider it part of another, larger phenomenon. There is something in the anime, unique, elusive. But what exactly, even fans find it difficult to answer.
Anime always pleases the viewer. The anime will be truly enjoyable when viewed behind a 16: 9 monitor with a high-quality stereo system. And on a TV with one raucous speaker, the spectacle will lose its gloss. What is broadcast on television looks very different than in the cinema. The attitude of the viewer is also important. True, this applies not only to anime, but in general to any film. It is with him and a high-quality series that anime should be compared, and not with a short entertaining cartoon.
Anime is part of Japanese culture. Many also believe that anime is created only in Japan. In fact, this genre is an exotic mixture of Japanese and American culture. By themselves, oriental motifs would look boring for the world viewer in animation. So the Americans had an important influence on anime. In addition, such pictures are painted in the United States and Korea. So, the Korean "Five-Tailed Yubi Chanterelle" is popular. But Japan remains the leader in terms of quality and quantity of films.
Anime has no future. Today, anime is at its peak in the world. At the very least, the genre has a great present. This means that there is already a generation of anime fans that will provide him with the future.
Anime will never become widespread in Russia. It is quite natural that chanson and drinking or patriotic songs will be much more popular in Russia. However, even making its way to mainstream television in single episodes, anime immediately gains many fans. An example is the cartoon "Pokemon". If our channels broadcast "alien" anime more often, then its popularity would be much higher.
After watching a few seconds of anime, you can form a definite opinion about it. Fans of the genre are convinced that in order to understand it, one must personally get acquainted with it, take a close look. Then it will already be possible to understand whether the anime is interesting or not. It is best to refuse to read annotations for cartoons or reviews, comments. It doesn't make any sense. Better to see everything in person and make up your own idea. Then it may well turn out that all these reviews were rubbish. The only exception can be considered only live communication with fans and connoisseurs of anime, who certainly know what it is about and what you should pay attention to. And it is best to choose tapes by genre. If you already like some anime in it, then you will most likely like other similar films. Otherwise, you may have to get bored by choosing the wrong genre. Here you can compare it with computer games, which anime are like. Those who like shooting games will feel uncomfortable in logic quests. In any case, from the first seconds of the game it will be difficult to form an impression about it - you will need to spend time on it.
Anime will blow your mind. If you watch anime for a long time and without a break, then it can really negatively affect the brain. But the situation is similar with computer games - some are so carried away that they lose the sense of reality and virtuality and even lose their lives. So those who have a headache during games or while watching anime, or who have the likelihood of an epileptic seizure, should limit themselves. Anime is safer in relation to games, it has an impact like an emotional movie. And much depends on the lifestyle of the person himself. If a person is mentally balanced, then nothing threatens his brain, whatever he sees from the TV screen.
Anime is suitable only for romantic and whiny people. But this is difficult to argue with. In this genre, emotions really play an important role, the heroes here often cry and suffer. Almost every tape uses the opportunity to demonstrate additional emotions in the world of a sea of tears, nasal discharge, or even other bodily fluids.
Anime can change lives. Anime really changes lives. At one time, for many, the creative work of the Beatles became a cultural breakthrough, but one could continue to listen to fleeting pop music. People were transformed by what they listened to. There are many internal messages embedded in the anime that have not found direct graphic reflection. It's about philosophy. The higher the degree of a person's ability to change and believe, the faster he can become a different way of watching anime. The truth is, what kind of personality will become, worse or better, no one can say.
Anime will sooner or later become obsolete. Some even believe that this genre has exhausted itself. If you look in terms of the appearance of something new and unusual, which was not yet in the anime, then this will seem to be true. But the same can be applied to computer games. Anime is also said to have degenerated into old traditions, which is also correct. But this is even good. Modern anime is very different from what was released 20 years ago, but does retro have more fans? Life is determined by change. If a genre does not develop and does not acquire new features, then it dies. That is why anime continues to live and will outlive itself for a long time. And instead, something new will appear, perhaps even better and more relevant. And it won't be anime anymore. So the idea of the genre's demise is not at all negative, but even somewhat positive. Death gives new life, there is no need to interfere with the death of anime, let it give rise to something hitherto unseen.
Anime is only cartoons. Anime isn't limited to cartoons. This genre also includes manga, colorful comics, numerous pictures, lifestyle, painting, mass industry. So anime has much broader boundaries, continuing to expand its influence, penetrating into all areas. This happens due to the versatility of the phenomenon and the ability to cover a variety of topics and plots. Anime manifests itself in our lives in many different forms. Heroes can be found on a school notebook or a pack of tea, and some are so fanatical that they imitate the grimaces and gestures of the heroes, sometimes even at the cost of significant physical consequences.
Anime should be written as "Anime" and Ecchi as "Etty". Strictly speaking, these words are generally originally Japanese, but we write them the way we hear them. And then we designate it with letter symbols as we like best.
Anime is liked by those who were clearly Japanese in a past life. Many people, being inspired by anime, will probably think that there is some connection with Japan. The genre seems too close and familiar, there is even a slight déjà vu. The question arises - what does a person have in common with such a distant and exotic Japan? What do we have to do with this country? It seems that we are Japanese by nature and lived there in a past life. But how can this be proven? If so, then that life turned out to be very interesting.
You can soon lose the freshness of anime sensations, love for the genre. If you put such anxiety into your heart, then indeed with each viewing the fear will increase, replacing pleasure. The situation will only get worse. To truly love anime, you have to try to be a little kid. Children have no problem expressing their feelings, which gives them an advantage over adults. They love simply because they love, not for some reason or fear of something.
All anime fans dream about it all the time. Many people spend hours playing themed games and watching relevant cartoons, but the stories are absolutely real! Yes, there may be anime elements in them, but they are woven into everyday life. Perhaps that is why this genre is so popular.
There is too much violence and gore in the anime. There are indeed films that are filled with bloody and violent scenes, this fact cannot be denied. But after all, a huge number of tapes do not contain any cruelty at all. Those who are embarrassed by the sight of blood should just find another version of the anime cartoon, it will certainly be found. The truth is that most people like violence, otherwise it would not have been shown so often. But this applies not only to anime, but in general to the entire cinema.
Anime is pornography, and even with elements of sadomasochism. Indeed, there is a pornographic anime, but it is a separate genre - hentai. Not every anime film has a hint of eroticism, let alone much more explicit things. It has long been known that pornography is a profitable business. That is why good money is made on hentai. But don't confuse this genre with anime.
In the word "anime" the stress should be on the last syllable. Some emphasize that the stress should be placed on the first syllable, while others emphasize the last. People correct each other, begin to learn the intricacies of the Japanese language and the rules for placing stress there. It is worth moving from the search for formal rules to reality. Let everyone call the genre what they like, both are correct. There is no definite solution here.
Anime is fun for kids. The fact that animation is used to convey information does not mean that only children love anime. There are a huge number of pictures that even many adults are unable to understand, the same Evangelion. Some films remain unattainable in depth. It is worth considering anime as a separate genre, and not as children's cartoons. These are real films based on animation. Some TV shows, like "Death Note" or "Gantz", are generally categorized as "18 and up."
TV companies don't know anything about anime. The fact that there is a little anime on TV does not mean that nothing is known about it. The employees responsible for the purchase of the TV product are probably familiar with Japanese animation, some are even quite familiar with its varieties. Another thing is that there is no desire to purchase anime for showing. Painfully, this product is peculiar and exotic.
The broadcaster can easily purchase anime for broadcast. First of all, purchasing a quality TV product costs a lot of money. The financial position of domestic channels has not been so good lately. You also need a reliable partner to purchase. The specificity of the channels is that they prefer to deal with trusted intermediaries and take all the products from them. Nobody buys the same series directly from the producer. Long-term contracts, prescribing the terms of the installment plan, and allow you to at least buy something. Working with a new anime broker is challenging. There are too many details, technical and financial, to be agreed upon. There is a risk for TV channels. And international rights to the bulk of high-quality anime series belong to small American intermediary firms. It is difficult to work with the translation, which is often in English and is also "approximate". In such a situation, those films that were on American television and have already been dubbed, or children's classics are popular. Such anime is in the catalogs of the main intermediaries, from where it gets to our screens.
Anime is a girl's hobby. Following this myth, one can state that cinema is a girl's hobby. In anime, there is a division by genre, some films are preferred by a female audience, and others by a male audience. True, the question still is how fundamentally the inner worlds of men and women differ. However, there are a lot of guys and adult men among anime fans.
Anime fans fall in love with fictional characters, preferring them to real partners. It is worth saying that in such a situation it is not anime that is to blame, but some other problems: loneliness, disagreements in the family, society. Taking an example from someone is not so bad. In anime, as in feature films, the main universal themes are revealed: friendship, love, suffering, honesty.
Anime imposes an alien and strange Japanese culture. But in the same way, the Japanese may find our culture strange. In the modern world, thanks to the Internet, borders have already been erased. Learning about other cultures becomes not just a necessity, but even an inevitability. Why not take the best from other nations, developing it and modernizing it? The Japanese show a good example - the same anime is based on the traditions of Western animation, in the Japanese language itself there are many foreign words. There is a contact of cultures without fear of losing their identity. Every society has something special that can be useful and please. It's ridiculous to shut yourself off from foreign cultures. A self-confident person, on the contrary, will always try to learn something new about the world around him.
Anime is empty entertainment that is of no use. What is the benefit - everyone determines for himself. There is no universal recipe here. You can list the benefits of anime. It helps to develop imagination, motivates to creativity. Based on the films they watched, people begin to draw and come up with stories, then switch to other styles.Animation fans easily gather critics around them, which helps to improve communication skills and even acquire fans. Such a hobby helps to learn languages, because watching videos with English subtitles will be a pleasant and useful lesson. And some even want to watch anime in the original, learning Japanese for this. Manga comics already help in this. The most energetic anime musicians improve their acting, creative and organizational skills during festivals. The films watched can become a topic for conversation, sometimes it will reveal new, hidden facets of the work. And just anime is a good rest, which many are generally deprived of or do not know how to organize for themselves.
