Transcript of Thesis Paper Presentation

Anime There are a few things you need to know about anime to understand my thesis... Thesis Although a product of Animation, Anime surpasses the cartoon culture of the west with its detail to culture, expression of artistic form, and depth of philosophy. ...But just exactly what are those things? Well calm down and I will tell you already Philosophy Animes tend to deal with a lot of deeper meaning kind of things and have a more intense and serious feel to most of them.

It can be assumed that there are some underlying philosophical views hidden away in a lot of animes.

There are some different philosophical viewpoints that reflect what Japan thinks as well as other more common thoughts and views. Different Philosophical Thoughts in Anime We do not control our own destiny but someone or something else does. In a very interesting anime, Death Note, there are beings called shinigami and they live in a world called the shinigami world and all they do is decide the fate of many people with a little book, called Death Note. They write their names in it and soon that person will die.

It goes to even more detail when a shinigami "accidentally" drops the book in the world of the living to have some fun, and a young man named Light Yagami finds the book and soon begins his journey of ridding the world of evil, or so what he believes to be evil and what is justice. Light Yagami Shinigami Ryuk Art Japanese anime is appealing because of the artistice expression within them Here is a look at all the different art forms アニメ End 最後に P.S. Please pray for Japan and hope for the full recovery of the birthplace of Anime. Thank you for watching my presentation 私のプレゼンテーションを見ていただき、ありがとうございます What would you do to survive? In a the anime, Bleach, they depict the life of an average high school student. The only difference about him is that he can see spirits. His name is Ichigo Kurosaki and he lives in a place called Karakura Town. One day is life is totally changed when he is introduced into the life of "Shinigami" or Soul Reapers. They are the ones that protects the spirits in the spirit world or "Soul Society" and help souls move on from the world of the living. Lost souls eventually turn to hollows, dark creatures that will eat the souls of others. Ichigo Kurosaki Rukia Kuchki Anime is art in itself. A moving picture. You will see that Animes have different beginning and ending credits than that of a Cartoon. Naruto: Opening song and Closing song Now a short look at an anime that most did not realize was an anime. It had its own unique style back in the day when it was very popular. Now to take a look at a moving picture and the artistic form. There is that thought of the possibility of perfection. The Darwinian method can be seen within certain animes such as shonen (directed toward 10 to 18 yr boys), one example being Bleach. Ichigo has this constant struggle to master his dangerous power. That it doesn't matter how he gets his strength, even if it means he loses his humanity, so long as he has enabled himself with the ability to survive in a world that is always causing him trouble and putting him on the verge of death. What you can also kind of see is the thoughts on what life could be like after we die, that there might be a whole new world waiting for us on the other side. What someone may value most, you may value even less. What some people may see as a hero others may see as just a normal person. In Japan they have different views on what is important compared to us, and a hero to them may be someone who has focused and dedicated their lives to studying and further enhancing their knowledge. This can be very apparent in the Japanese anime, Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood. Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood is about Edward Elric and Alphonse Elric the two protagonist of the story and are thought as being young prodigy because they mastered at a young age the art of alchemy and Ed is the youngest person to join the military and become a state alchemist. They are on their own little quest to regain theri bodies which they lost when trying to bring their mother back to life when they were only 7 and 5 years old, which is a big taboo among alchemist. They go in search of the philosopher stone which could be used to get their bodies back. But the plot thickens as they learn more about the truth behind it. In this anime you can see what the japanese value most in the children and that the children become great students always learning and focusing on getting a good education. Ed and Al are the Japanese student hero figures because they mastered alchemy by studying all sorts of books, reading for hours and hours to enhance their knowledge on the art of alchemy.
