What is Anime and Why is it so Popular?

Anime, short for animation, is a global phenomenon, originating in Japan, that has captured the hearts and imaginations of millions.

Unlike most Western styles of animation, anime has a wide range of genres to choose from, including action-packed adventures or tales of horror to more heartwarming stories of life. Its most notable differences from the traditional animation we’re used to are its distinctive art style, emotion-driven narratives, and complex characters. Altogether this makes for a unique viewing experience.

Anime encompasses a whole range of different genres including romance, fantasy, sci-fi, and much more. We advise you to try them all! Don’t be afraid to try something new because you might discover something that truly resonates with you. Each genre offers something unique so you will never run out of choices.

Embrace Subbed and Dubbed Versions

When watching anime, you have the choice to view it as “subbed” meaning with subtitles, or “dubbed” which means it is voiced over in your native language. Subbed versions keep the original Japanese audio so you get to enjoy the voice performance as intended by the creators. Dubbed versions are more accessible and may be easier to follow. It’s really up to your personal preferences which experience you choose.

Engage with the Anime Community

The anime fanbase is a vibrant and welcoming one. So don’t be afraid to connect with fellow anime enthusiasts on online forums, social media groups, and even conventions. This accepting community can offer you insights and recommendations to help you on your anime journey.
