Transcript of Anime

Osamu Tezuka created Astro Boy in 1963. This anime had so much impact that there were other versions made and was even adapted into an American movie in 2009.
A large amount of cartoons and the like today were influenced or had roots in japan. Mecha, as Levi defines in Samurai from Outer Space is drawn from the English word “mechanical” and is used by the Japanese to describe all the forms of futuristic machines in anime.
This topic is important to me because it influences my life, my art and the people I befriend.
Today I will to inform you about anime, its history, the culture and its influence on the U.S.

Anime grew more popular through the 70’s and 80’s with shows like Gatchaman, Mobile Suit Gundum, Creamy mami, Dragonball, and so forth
Did you know the large franchise of Transformers was originally Japanese?
Many American musical artists are or were influenced by anime, whether in their life or just for the direction of their video. Some of these videos include Intergalactic by Beastie Boys and Stronger by Kanye West.
Takashi Murakami is a well known Japanese artist who invented a style called “Super Flat” which is characterized by flat planes of color and graphic images involving a character style derived from anime and manga (Stout, Takashi Murakami: Superflat and super awkward).
Anime has made it possible for people to get interested and more open to Japanese culture. Anime influences many artists in the U.S and now many younger Americans have adapted the drawing style and have made “kawaii” clothing designs and accesories that have become popular in younger adult stores.
. Anime’s fan base is so large that conventions have been made to host all of the fans, or “otaku”. At the convention many people cosplay..
Cosplaying is short for costume play
There are 7 anime conventions within our tri-state area alone.
As more people gain a love for anime, more of the series are dubbed and shown in America. Anime’s fan base is growing and the animation style can be seen any day on television with programs such as Adult Swim. In conclusion, now you can see how anime, although its brief history, has influenced our vivid art, entertainment and culture.
This time period is also when the most influential anime studio to Americans was created, Studio Ghibli. This studio was co-founded by the famous Hayao Miyazaki who’s first film for the studio was Castle in the Sky
The studio is still popular and most recently created popular films Spirited Away, Howls Moving Castle, Ponyo and Arrietty.
