Anime is a form of Japanese cartoons.
And like American cartoons, it also has many genres and many plot ideas, sometimes covering more serious topics.
Characters have unusual hair and eye colors, big eyes and unrealistic behavior.
Often, anime is created with genres meant for boys, girls or businessmen.
An example of an anime series that is geared more towards girls (this is called “shoujo”) like “Ouran High School Host Club” is filled with cute boys, drama and comedy.
Anime that boys will most likely enjoy is called “shounen.” It usually involves blood, gore, and a lot of fighting.
The characters are really cute. I like a lot of the plots, and there is always some sort of comic relief.
It is kind of weird, creative and original, which is another reason I love Anime.
