The term “anime” refers to animated films from Japan which are being produced for an audience of all ages. These are often based on “manga”, Japanese comics.
In addition to their completely own imagery they provide an unusual and exciting look at life and our world, since they come from a completely different culture. The variety of topics as well as the sophisticated manner in which they are covered opens a universe to the Western audience.
If one takes the trouble to look at this world with open eyes and go to the bottom of things you will be rewarded with interesting insights into the culture and soul of Japan.
