if you say that because you've only met weird kids who believe they have magical powers or want to become a Pokemon trainer.... then i can understand you point.

But, really.. there are some good, interesting, intelligent, creative series that are not known in America. Anime that is meant not for little kids, but for teens and even mature audience with lots and lots of genres and stories.

I don't like when people tag anime or people who like anime as dorks, when they don't know what anime really offers.

Eh... I watched the entire Full Metal Alchemist, Fooley Cooley, and Cowboy Bebop series on adult swim a while ago. I enjoyed them all. I also saw most episodes of TriGun on youtube which only got my attention simply because I liked the theme music so I decided to check it out. I'm not particularly a big anime fan. I just happen to like those specific shows.

I used to watch it a lot, not so much anymore. Most of the decent stuff on Adult Swim along with FLCL, Chrono Crusade, Hellsing, Samurai Champloo and Hellsing Ultimate there is only two episodes but they are better then all the other Hellsing combined. There are others I'm sure but none that I can think fo at the moment.

I read a bit of Deathnote I didn't find it very interesting. Lone Wolf and Cub is the greatest graphic novel ever. I've also read some of the Hellsing graphic novels that Hellsing Ultimate is directly based on.

And of course movies like Spirited Away, Akira, and My Neighbor Totoro witch was a childhood favorite.

I don't care how detailed the drawings are, the lack of in-betweens and the fact that about 50% of the scenes are just one cel with a different mouth added on for every shot makes the animation blow.

That's the exact reason I despise Inuyasha with a passion. It's the same fucking thing every episode. The entirety of the story is told to you in any of the episodes, so you know exactly what they're doing and what they're going to be doing no matter where you start.
Samurai Deeper Kyo (which I'm reading right now) is drawn-out a bit, but it actually has something to take away from noticing that as you read it. As for Bleach, I never really got into it, but I notice that I could given I give it more time.

So you're saying that all anime is for adults? Fucking idiot.

"Anime is an abbreviation of the word "animation". Outside Japan, the term most popularly refers to animation originating in Japan. To the West, not all animation is considered anime; and anime is considered a subset of animation.

Linguistically, the anime definition is subject to interpretation. In Japan, the term does not specify an animation's nation of origin or style; instead, it is used as a blanket term to refer to all forms of animation from around the world. In English, main dictionary sources define anime as "a Japanese style of motion-picture animation" or "a style of animation developed in Japan".Thus, non-Japanese works are sometimes called anime-influenced animation if they borrow stylistically from Japanese animation."

Now, Pokemon falls into that category, for it is anime.

"In the late 1990s and early 2000s, this trend began to change as more openly Japanese works, such as Sailor Moon, Dragonball Z, Pokémon, Yu-Gi-Oh, and Gundam Wing, achieved mainstream popularity on American television. Although many of these shows did undergo some kind of "Americanization" in the form of character name changes and edits for violence, language, and the occasional nudity, viewers were more aware of the shows' country of origin, which might perhaps pique their curiosity to seek out other works in a similar style."

Pokemon is shōnen which is a genre of anime. Before you start spitting out shit, do a little research. Moron.

Also, Vera, manga is anime. I don't watch many anime shows, just some. I'm not an anime FAN, but i appreciate it.

Also, animation is not childish at all. You obviously don't know where you stand in this conversation, PIB (i think he said it - eh, too lazy to look back to.)

Manga (漫画, Manga?) listen (help·info) (pl. manga) is the Japanese word for comics and print cartoons. Outside of Japan, it usually refers specifically to comics originally published in Japan.

And if you dislike sources like that, let's try... this source: http://library.loganutah.org/booklist/ya/whatismanga.html


Manga is the Japanese word for 'comic book.' In the United States, it is usually used to refer to Japanese graphic novels (novel-length comics).

Not all Japanese graphic novels are about giant battling robots (although there are plenty of those!) Science fiction and fantasy are the most popular types of manga in the US, but subjects of these books vary widely. They range from horror to romance to military epics to sports stories to family dramas to school stories and much more.

Anime is the word used to describe the film equivalent to manga. Many Japanese animated television shows and movies are based on manga series.


So anime can be BASED on manga - and often is - and in rare cases, manga can be based on anime, but manga doesn't equal ANIME.


anime is animation, short. manga is a cartoon, comic. What do you think the actual cartoon/comic is? anime.

so... the comic Naruto is not anime while the show is?

Anime is animation. Manga is comics. As in, on paper? You know, paper? That you can buy? That isn't, like, video? Moving pictures?

The English term "cartoon" is confusing you here because it can refer to both print form and actual animation (hence "Cartoon Network" but cartoon column at the end of the newspaper). The Japanese terms are very simple. Anime is animated. Manga is print-form.

Naruto the manga is a comic.

Naruto the anime is an animated television show.

It's that simple.

I remember Dragon Ball Z was a popular superwaydowndeep underground thing when I was younger. It wasn't televised in English or in America in any way whatsoever, so the only way people heard of it was from the bootleg subtitled VHS tapes comic book stores would push on kids in the area. So I used to buy the original Dragon Ball Z episodes and stuff.

What you say, is like saying that a book is a movie. which is wrong. Most of the time, a movie (FILM, actors, music, movement, camera) is BASED on a book (PRINT, words, story, just read).

while i mostly agree with lodat in this thread, he does have the definition of anime a bit messed up. anime is a form of animation, and animations are DYNAMIC, not STATIC, thus manga is *not* anime. as you can clearly see from this passage, anime is the *video* form of that style of drawing, manga is the *print* version of it:

Anime is broadcast on television, distributed on media such as DVD and VHS, and included in video games. Additionally, some are produced as full length motion pictures. Anime often draws influence from manga, light novels, and other cultures.

Lodat, I'm truly sorry to turn your world upside down but... the truth is what Vera said. Most of the time, an anime series is based on a manga. And notice how Sanni wrote in caps BASED, which means that the story is not the same in both all the time.

What you say, is like saying that a book is a movie. which is wrong. Most of the time, a movie (FILM, actors, music, movement, camera) is BASED on a book (PRINT, words, story, just read).

anyway. this is the last thing i say about it, I won't spend more of my time arguing with you about it.

Exactly. How difficult is this to understand?

The reason why Wiki's Anime-article's "See also" includes Manga is because the two are obvious related. They're two vastly different things but obviously there's a relation as many mangas are adapted into anime shows and occasionally vice versa.


Anime is animation. Manga is a comic... of what? Of anime. Manga is a style of anime. Go search it on wikipedia or soemthing and it says "see also". There's manga. Search anime anywhere, and there's manga drawings? Why? BECAUSE MANGA IS ANIME, BUT DRAWN. NOT ON TV.
Most of the time the manga comes first. Manga is comics - not of *anime*. Anime is made - in most cases - after the manga has been running in manga magazines and published as manga novels.

Let's take Naruto for example:


Naruto (ナルト, Naruto? romanized as NARUTO in Japan) is a manga by Masashi Kishimoto with an anime TV series adaptation.

Anime is an adaptation of the Naruto manga. Let's look at dates.


The manga was first published by Shueisha in 1999 in the 43rd issue of Japan's Shonen Jump magazine. --- snip ---

The anime series, produced by Studio Pierrot and Aniplex, premiered across Japan on the terrestrial TV Tokyo network and the anime satellite television network Animax on October 3, 2002, and is still being aired.

How can manga be a style of anime when the manga is drawn BEFORE the anime is made?

Basically, manga isn't animated, hence IT IS NOT ANIME.

Video vs paper. That's the simple difference between anime and manga.

Lodat... what the fuck? If anime is just short for "animation", then how can manga be anime?? IT'S NOT ANIMATED. Simple as that.

Vera
03-23-2007, 04:18 AM
This is mildy hilarious. Also, if something's listed under a Wikipedia article's "See also", it means it's a related topic, not a sub-sect of the actual topic or anything like that.

Under Anime's "See also" are stuff like "Doujinshi", "Cosplay", "Japanese pop music". With the same argumentation you could argue that cosplay is anime or jpop is anime or fucking fanfic is anime. Manga is a phenomenon related to anime, but you can't put a = mark between the two.

With out having read a single part of this thread, excapt this page, I'm going to state that manga = comic and anime = cartoon. Manga's not anime nor the other way around.
And Per needs to harden the FUCK up. He is the most oppinonated asshole to have ever walked these plains. If he has an oppinion you cannot and I reapeat CANNOT convince him otherwise. Doesn't matter if it's wrong, he still will not be convinced. He's gonna need hard prove that you're right so you just avoid arguments with Per. Not cause, then he wins, but because it's a pain in the ass. And that doesn't make him right.[/rant]

Dammit. ='(

There are other differences in manga and anime as well, such as differing storylines. Ultimately similar, but different things are said and done. For instance, Satella doesn't die in the Chrono Crusade manga. And there are fillers in most anime (Naruto and Rurouni Kenshin, particularly).

ninth, RickyCrack, and PIB are preaching the truth.

Seriously Lodat, anime is for kids and fat white perverts who get off at the idea of a robot dragon fucking a kid who has knives for hands, or whatever stupid psudo-sexual thing the anime is about. Every person I know that watches anime and is over the age of 12 is either a huge, huge pervert, or retarded. And I know a lot of people over the age of 12 that watch anime.

And even if animation (not just anime) is intended for an older audience, the simple fact is that more kids are watching it regardless of who it's made for. Even a big Simpsons nerd like myself can admit that the majority of the show's fanbase is 12 year olds. Your arguments against this are just stupid. You're like those kids I knew when I was 10 that thought Dragonball Z was amazingly dark because they said "dammit" a few times.

And the first season of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex was really good with the ongoing Laughing Man Case. The two Ghost in the Shell movies were very well done, the latest one Innocence was such a beautiful drawn and animated, though it was in Japanese.
