How to Draw Anime

454524-44129-22

There seems to be a lot of confusion between anime and manga. Anime is the Japanese word which means animation, which can be any short or long animated movie. Do not confuse it with manga, which means Japanese comic book. So, when people are talking about manga or anime, they mean the same thing. When it comes to drawing anime and manga, still there are some technical differences. But, the basic idea is the same. Manga is generally more detailed, but anime or Japanese animated film characters are kept a little bit simpler.

Tokyo Ghoul Review

tokyo_ghoul_by_scent_melted-d7p7f04

The new anime series called Tokyo Ghoul is a type of anime that makes you wonder about humanities values and rules. A reason I say this is that, an anime which discusses humanity from two perspectives is always interesting to view and discuss about. There are other types of anime that I have seen which talk about the differences on both sides of life forces example Black Bullet another beautiful anime.

The anime Tokyo Ghoul is a supernatural anime that has ghouls (supernatural beings) feeding on human flesh. Most humans hear this and think how gruesome, how unethical, how inhumane. Exactly the point for war between humans and the ghoul. The problem arises when this ghouls show behaviours of humanity also, example having feelings. The only difference between humans and ghouls is their choice of meals. Where humans eat cows and goats as a normal gesture, the ghouls also need the human flesh. All in all both sides are only looking for way to survive.

Genre of Anime

i_love_anime_post_cards-r767988b0f5fa4982913c7d369a468cbc_vgbaq_8byvr_512

The genres of anime that exist are broad; so its most interesting to pick a particular type. The ones I personally enjoy are detective and sports anime especially with ones where they are playing soccer. Others include: Mecha which has robots and School life which uses high schools; that means no supernatural things happening. The other types of anime that exist but for an older age group is Harem and Ecchi, where the audience is expected to be males. The Reverse harem is for females.

The types of anime that are really interesting are ones that have a Motley crew. It helps us to expect what we are about to watch and makes its more interesting when we get it right. Not only is anime  in T.v series it comes in movies and OVA; which are videos used either to end a T.v  seres or explain a characters point of view through out the series. OVA stands for Original Video Animation.

Some of the anime that I have seen and would like to review at another time are famous ones like Naruto and One piece  when its complete and I have had time to watch it. Other anime that I enjoyed watching are Slam dunk, Black Butler, MAJOR and Detective School Q. The list contains sports, supernatural and detective anime. These are the types I particularly enjoy watching.

How to Create Your Own Anime Character Online

459019-1654-51

You cannot switch on a single animation channel in existence without catching a snippet of at least one anime cartoon series. This style of animation that we are so familiar with today was developed only about forty years ago but the earliest anime clip in existence can in fact be traced back to the year 1917, when a two minute clip was created in Japan, the birthplace of anime. While for the longest span of time the use of anime was limited to animating cartoons, today the use is widespread from video games to movies. No longer is anime considered a simple type of animation. It is now well worthy of being titled an art form with styles varying according to the preference of the animator or the artist. Today it is very easy to learn to draw anime characters, more so because it is simple to create one’s own anime character online with the help of the numerous dedicated websites out there. While there are limitations to these websites because of the fixed number of modifications that you can make to the anime character, the fact remains that these websites can be the perfect start to fuel your new found interest in anime art.

Anime Primate

Monkey_2

The constant use of monkey looking characters has got me more intrigued in anime. The monkey characters all just have the same characters but different faces and names. The best part is they are awesome side characters that are used for comedic relief. A famous monkey character isTaro Raimon from the anime “Eyeshield 21″. He is also known as “Monta”. His character is extremely funny where he helps play American football with the other casts. His catchphrase is “Extreme max”. This is something he says when he catches a ball mostly in mid air.

Another character is “Jack”from the Anime called “MAR”. He is also not a main character but his monkey attributes stand out. Jack is extremely funny, and his skills with the ladies is so entertaining as you watch him being rejected continuously. His strength in battle as they fight against opponents is very rewarding as you see his resolve to get stronger from his former position of last to the equal strength of the main characters.

Difference between anime and cartoon

cartoon_vs_anime_by_devilsbladeauthor-d5w1ejt

 

Hey guys hows it going?

I am going to be giving tips about anime. The main rule is spotting the “difference”. This means learning to differentiate anime from cartoon. In  summary Anime is Japanese made T.V series. Sometimes other parts of Asia contribute, like Korea; but it is originally recognized as a Japanese product. An example is “Naruto and Bleach”

The term “cartoon” is what Americans make for children consumption, which includes broadcast Programs like KTV, Disney Channel and Cartoon Network. An example is “Spongebob and Scooby Doo”

Also there is no plural for the word anime, that means there is no such word as “animes”. That is a big NO.

Assignment

How has Japanese animation evolved since World War II? Who were the people who contributed to its change and how was it influenced by the war?

Background on Art and Animation (Manga and Anime)

The Invasion:

Many people in the U.S. probably heard of cartoons like Sailor Moon, Dragonball Z, Voltron, Gundam Wing, Speed Racer, Digimon, and the ever so popular Pokemon; Famous cartoons that have bizarre character designs: female characters with beautiful round eyes, hair that is incredibly big, and gorgeous figure and physique. Male characters would usually have enormously huge muscles (as seen in Dragonball Z and GT), powerful bodies and maybe, on occasion, have gigantic robots as seen in cartoons like Robotech and Gundam Wing.

What is Anime?

Girl-In-The-Night-Anime-Wallpaper

Anime (Japanese: アニメ?, [anime] ( listen); English Listeni/ˈænɨmeɪ/) are Japanese animated productions usually featuring hand-drawn or computer animation. The word is the abbreviated pronunciation of “animation” in Japanese, where this term references all animation.[1] In other languages, the term is defined as animation from Japan or as a Japanese-disseminated animation style often characterized by colorful graphics, vibrant characters and fantastic themes.

The earliest commercial Japanese animation dates to 1917, and production of anime works in Japan has since continued to increase steadily. The characteristic anime art style emerged in the 1960s with the works of Osamu Tezuka and spread internationally in the late twentieth century, developing a large domestic and international audience. Anime is distributed theatrically, by television broadcasts, directly to home media, and over the internet and is classified into numerous genres targeting diverse broad and niche audiences.
