Anime fact difficult to tease the two apart from each other, since it is impossible to participate in anime fan culture, except at the very shallowest level, and not be exposed to other forms of Japanese popular culture and traditional Japanese culture, and thereby be encouraged to explore them further. Anime and its relationship to interest in Japan are useful to consider in the context of teaching and learning about Japan.

The term is most frequently used to refer to people interested in anime and anime-related media such as video games and manga, because they are the community responsible for coining the term when referring to themselves. “The Politics of Otaku” by Lawrence...

How Anime and Manga Affect Teenagers

...------------------------------------------------------ Page Conclusions ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Page Recommendations ----------------------------------------------------------------- Page Rationale With us living in the modern times, new technologies appeared that helped people perform their tasks well. Truly our lifestyle has changed along with the changes in technology. People’s hobbies have changed as well, this is greatly seen in the growing population of what we could call otakus. In the Western part of the world, this term refers to the people who are fans of anime and manga. In Japan, however, this term is somewhat considered as a negative way of labeling someone. For the Japanese, otaku people are those who are obsessed with anime, manga and videogames to the point where some of them no longer go out and socialize with other people. Some of these otakus prefer to shut themselves in their rooms instead. Anime and manga has also led some people, mostly teenagers, to dress up and act as their favorite anime/videogame character. We call this as cosplay, the shortened term for costume play. People who cosplay are called cosplayers. Since most of those people mentioned in the previous paragraph are teenagers, we came up with a single question in mind: how do anime and manga affect the lives of teenagers? This question may sound really simple, and it may be answered easily by simply saying, “It’s......

...later called themselves otaku, began to develop around animation magazines such as Animage or later Newtype. These magazines popped up in response to the overwhelming fandom that developed around shows such as Yamato and Gundam in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Yamato animator Yoshinori Kanada allowed individual key animators working under him to put their own style of movement as a means to save money. In many more "auteuristic" anime this formed the basis of an individualist animation style unique to Japanese commercial animation. In addition, Kanada's animation was inspiration for Takashi Murakami and his Superflat art movement. In the United States the already mentioned popularity of Star Wars had a similar, but much smaller, effect on the development of anime.[citation needed]Gatchaman was reworked and edited into Battle of the Planets in 1978 and again as G-Force in 1986. Space Battleship Yamato was reworked and edited into Star Blazers in 1979. The Macrossseries began with The Super Dimension Fortress Macross (1982), which was adapted into English as the first arc of Robotech (1985), which was created from three separate anime titles: The Super Dimension Fortress Macross, Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross and Genesis Climber Mospeada. The sequel to Mobile Suit Gundam, Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam (1985), became the most successful Real Robot space opera in Japan, where it managed an average television rating of 6.6% and a peak of 11.7%.[13] The otaku culture became......

Anime Addiction

According to “a Japanese style of motion-picture animation, characterized by highly stylized, colorful art, futuristic settings, Violence and, sexuality.” According to anime otaku (obsessed of anime) “essential for life on this planet. A type of art that isn’t stationary, an art that doesn’t bore you to death. Without it I would have died of boredom.” Anime is short for Animation. Usually when talking about “anime” it is referred to Japanese animation that has been adapted from Japanese manga. Anime is an abbreviation of the English word “animation”, originating in Japan through the roots of manga. Although the term is used in Japan to refer to animation in general, in English usage the term most popularly refers to material originating from Japan, a subset of animation. Anime is traditionally hand drawn, but computer assisted techniques have become quite common in recent years. The subjects of anime represent most major genres of fiction, and anime is available in most motion-picture media ranging from television to literature. ( Why is Anime addicting?

The Effects of Otaku Culture to an Individual’s Study Habit

...SY 2012-2013 “The Effects of Otaku Culture to an Individual’s Study Habit” A Research Paper to be presented to Ms. Exzie Calubayan In Partial Fulfillment of the requirements in Sociology By Villegas, Claire Bridget R. March 15, 2013 Chapter One “It’s not just anime! It’s a way of life!” Introduction The real meaning of “Otaku” had a small debate when the US coined it as a term for people who are obsessed with the Japanese culture, with also a considerably large amount of love for anime and manga. However, the real meaning of the word “Otaku” could be viewed as negative for a typical Japanese person because “Otaku” literally means “Social Recluse” (Also note, it is synonymous to “Hikikomori”) specifically speaking, when one speaks of “Otaku Culture”, one’s head would immediately pop out the word “geek” or “nerd”. The culture mainly speaks about Japanese traditions, pop culture, anime, and manga. (Wikipedia, Retrieved 2013) Otaku culture originated from Akihabara, a district of Tokyo where it mostly sells electronic goods as well as a famous hangout for otaku individuals. Originally, “Otaku” during the old times meant “house” or “family” while giving an emphasis on respect when used as a second-person pronoun. However, as modern Japanese slang continued to grow in the busy streets of Tokyo when fans of well known anime titles such as Neon Genesis Evangelion and Hunter x Hunter, people now adopted the new meaning of “Otaku”.

...INTRODUCTION           ANIME. Whenever I hear this word, I automatically switch my brain from serious and normal mode, to hyperactive and otaku mode.           When I hear people talk about anime, I can't just leave them be, I'll talk with them! This is how freaky and weird I can be. I first started watching anime when I was a kid, but I took it to the next level when I was in high school. Are you wondering what kind of next level this is? I meant next level as, at first, I only watch it when I come across it. But now, I watch it because I want to. It became my fascination. When I learned that an anime is popular and it's really good, I'll watch it. I may leave my schoolwork undone and watch anime first. This became the topic of my blog. Anime.           Hi! I'm a serious, fun, hyperactive, weird and crazy otaku. I'm Lissa Nubla and welcome to my blog! 1 - What is Anime? (The photo above is an example of an anime art/drawing.)           So, what is anime? Why is it popular all around the world, just like here in the Philippines? Does anime affect the way of living of the people that watch or are addicted in watching it?           According to the article What is Anime by Serdar Yegulalp that I read, "The word anime -- pronounced "ah-knee-may" -- is an abbreviation of the word animation. In Japan, the word's used to refer to all animation." Also, according to Katherine Luther, anime is essentially Japanese animation and in fact, the word 'anime' is a......

Manga and Its Origin

...Manga characters almost always have large eyes, small mouths, and they also usually have abnormal hair color. These things give their characters a very western look to them. After the domination of Manga since it’s first publish in Western media, many older generations have concerned about a negative influence of Manga over teenagers, which is called Otaku. Otaku is the honorific word of Taku (home).  Otaku is extremely negative in meaning as it is used to refer to someone who stays at home all the time and doesn't have a life (no social life, no love life, etc.) Usually an otaku person has nothing better to do with their life so they pass the time by watching anime, playing videogames, surfing the internet. Otaku is true that it happens to only a small population. The reason for being an Otaku could be well explained by readers’ lacks of information before choosing a Manga. Manga are carefully categorized into different levels: children, teenagers, boy, girl, adult and as well as adventure, fighting, horrific, and even more. So Otaku seems to happen only if readers are not well prepared with enough information, but this Otaku can be easily solved if the reader try a little more time on searching Manga and it’s recommendation, warning, and suggestion before purchasing. First thing to point out from Manga, that it is read by a broad audience. So many people read manga that there is really something for everyone out there in term of story. Unlike Western comics, there......

...FUNimation® ran into several problems like people copying their movies without rights. For this their legal department went into action by pursuing a more aggressive approach to protect their licensed products by sending “cease and desist” letters to sites offering their products without permission.

Otaku World

...Mangaka Anime Introduction Anime refers to the animation style originated in Japan. It is characterized by distinctive characters and backgrounds, hand-drawn or computer-generated that visually and thematically set it apart from other forms of animation. Storylines may include a variety of fictional or historical characters, events, and settings. Anime is aimed at a broad range of audiences and consequently, a given series may have aspects of a range of genres. Anime is most frequently broadcasted on television or sold on DVDs either after their broadcast run or directly as original video animation. Console and computer games sometimes also feature segments or scenes that can be considered anime. Manga is Japanese for "comics" or "whimsical images". Manga developed from a mixture of Ukiyo-e and Western styles of drawing, and took its current form shortly after World War II. Manga, apart from covers, is usually published in black and white but it is common to find introductions to chapters to be in color, and is read from top to bottom and then right to left, similar to the layout of a Japanese plain text. Financially, manga represented in 2005 a market of ¥24 billion in Japan and one of $180 million in the United States. Manga was the fastest growing segment of books in the United States in 2005. Anime and manga share many characteristics, including: exaggerating of physical features, to which the reader presumably should pay most attention, "dramatically shaped speech......

...atomic bomb on the youth and the country as a whole and you’d still be left with so much more to explore: calligraphy, enka, origami, clothing, social hierarchies, etc. There’s so much about the country to fall in love with. Those who have are called otaku. The term refers to those with an obsessive or above-average interest in Japanese culture but most especially in the country’s anime and manga. Naturally, those in our country, and even in our campus have fallen in love with Japan, so much so that the practice of that love has become a culture in itself, otaku culture, if you will. Students of the Ateneo are wont to talk about their favorite anime and manga and display quite prominently how they love that small island country with events, clubs, gathering places, and what have you. Otaku culture is indeed one of many modern-day cultural phenomena that has taken a firm grip on Ateneo’s campus in terms of popularity. It hasn’t always been like this however. Up until the past few years, the industry of anime and manga was only consumed by niche audience, but now, the medium is consumed by both children and adults alike. The audience only gets bigger and bigger. As a result, otaku culture is becoming more commonplace in contemporary youths including our school’s own. Gone are the days of the “Big Three” franchises of “Naruto”, “Bleach” and “One Piece” published by Shonen Jump and being the only franchises the fandom......

Anime vs Being Childish

...Anime lovers are called Otaku, which is western for 'freak' or Japanese for 'fan.' Those that enjoy anime are shoved into that category for no reason aside from the fact that they like cartoon stories. They are seen as childish, immature, and having no real life. This simply isn't true. There are many reasons that anime is a legitimate art form and "otaku" should be viewed as no different from people who love action movies or love stories.. Many heroes in anime are not typical Western heroes. Our heroes are Rambo, Dirty Harry, and Indiana Jones - somebody with a gun, an attitude, and a way with women. Sometimes the hero is a woman, but these cases are few and far between- women are usually just romantic interests for the hero. You don't get swordsmen, space-age heroes (since Buck Rogers, anyway) or children in our movies-until you go to movies based on history, 80's kids shows, and kid's movies. In anime, the heroes tend to be younger and less capable. Their shows focus on the growth of characters instead of how many explosions movie makers can stuff in. (though there are still lots of explosions). Anime is Eastern-style cartoons, not Western.. Most American adults see cartoons as kid stuff. They 'grew out of it' by the time they were eleven, or so they'll claim. Why do so many people love anime, despite their 'cartoon' roots? The simple, wrong answer is that they don't have the mental capacity to deal with seventy-three seasons of "Friends" or "Everybody Loves Raymond."......
